CODE 104-Key Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Green

Product Review (submitted on June 10, 2016):
Switching from Blues on a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate to the Greens on this was an easy transition. I only noticed the heavier actuation force when comparing them side-by-side.

I'd say the Greens are marginally quieter than the Blues and, overall, they're about as loud as whatever non-mechanical switches the Microsoft ergonomic keyboard uses.

The lock LEDs are close enough to the number pad that I can't see them at certain angles. Their brightness doesn't change with the key adjustments, either, but neither of those things are a big deal.

I like that there isn't a built-in palm rest. It lets me decide how to adjust for comfort and I can pick it up in one hand.

The feet are rubberized and the edge under the space bar is angled slightly so when the feet are lowered, the keyboard is still stable. I haven't had this for very long yet but the rubber pads seem like they're going to stay put. A lot of other keyboards I've owned lost their pads really easily.

The USB cord is sturdy. I'm confident that I can run it through any of the channels on the underside of the keyboard without wrecking the insulation. My only real gripes are that the cord comes out of the middle channel pretty easily and it's a little bit of a pain to connect the keyboard end of the USB cable.
