I have z15 clicky from months ago. Received z20 yesterday linear version. To use macro, ya need to install the app, it freezes, but i can tolerate it and just need to learn how to minimize the freeze. Once your set up, it's worry free. I recommend z20...it has 3 cables(2 usb and 1 audio) meaning there is a usb slot and Audioport on KB.

Typing on a Z15 right now with bronze switches. Have had it about 2 weeks. It is very nice looking, feels good, and did not require any software to be installed to use RGB functions. Of course, if you want to do more sophisticated RGB effects, you would need to install the software. Overall, I think it is a great deal for the price, and wouldn't hesitate to pick one up at this price.

I have the linear z15 and love it as well. You can also install the app, change one of the default effects (e.g. solid red to solid yellow), then uninstall the app. The change will still be stored with the keyboard.

Hello, thank you for response.

Can I make it display only one color for all keys?

Instead of having them rainbow colors across all keys like shown in the picture?

Wanted to post a usual note regarding the Z15 Bronze as these are a tricky category for anyone not familiar with, and specifically shopping for, these switches. Speed switches from Kailh are genuinely gaming focused by introducing a shorter actuation point about half that of traditional switches. Being Bronze tactile switches surely helps prevent unintended key presses, but be wary if you're just shopping for a general deal on a mechanical keyboard. The trap with Bronze tactile switches is that the actuation point comes before the tactile point (see details in a post from another thread). Contrast this with the standard-bearers in this space like the Cherry MX Blue [input.club] or Cherry MX Brown [input.club] (and most every other switch in this category, including the Gold version [input.club] of these Kailh Speed variety). This distinction could produce a very bad user experience for many tactile switch shoppers (which seems to have been the case in a highly rated post in another thread).

Good luck!
Jon

It's EVGA, so at minimum it's acceptable and at best, wonderful. EVGA makes mid to high quality stuff and is reasonable in price. I'd buy it over razer any day

I have the Z15 with speed silvers and I like it. I would recommend it to anyone who is new to mechanical keyboards and interested in gaming. If you are a hardcore mechanical keyboard guy, this will not go the distance for you. The price point is unbeatable for the quality.

I bought this on a previous deal for about $10 more. I returned it because the the keys/switches are hair-trigger sensitive and for me was extremely unpleasant to type on and SIGNIFICANTLY reduced the speed at which I type, as well as caused miscalculations while playing games by triggering keys next to the key I would intend to press. The build quality is fairly decent and the RGB is really good looking. The software is completely useless.I wanted something different than CM Storm 1800 layout keyboard I had been using for almost 10 years and was getting tired of clicky blue switches. Ended up buying an Anne Pro II with gat browns. I don't recommend clicky switches.

What's the difference between linear and clicky options? Which would be better for gaming?

Clicky has a click sensation and usually makes noise (sometimes a lot of noise). Linear is smooth and has no click. Linear stops when you hit the bottom, but the activation point is somewhere before hitting the bottom (so you dont actually have to press it all the way down).
