The conservative looks make the Zalman a great choice for anyone looking for a keyboard geared towards gaming without the flashy lights and angled cases so many other gaming keyboards have. On the other hand, there's no RGB lighting, which will disappoint many users.
Programing macros and lighting modes are not a hassle in any way, which is important due to the fact that the keyboard's limited software doesn't support editing either. The Cherry MX switches performed as expected with no issues, although not having an option for any other switches will certainly limit the interest in the keyboard.
