There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The big brother of the gdgt-recommended Black Widow, the Ultimate model adds a USB hub, more macros, headset ports, and backlit keys to one of the best mechanical keyboards out there. If you're looking for a great typing experience — for gaming or work — we think the less expensive Black Widow is a better deal. But if illuminated keys and the rest of the Ultimate's features are worth an extra $40 or so, we certainly wouldn't blame you for picking this one instead.
