Summary: This keyboard is absolutely fantastic. The faceplate is all brushed aluminum. The red backlight is beautiful, not only are the keynames lit, but there is a gorgeous red glow behind all the keys reflecting off the aluminum faceplate. The volume roller knob is even metal! The wiring is ultra tough and sheathed. There is a USB pass-through for plugging in your mouse or other desktop items. If you have never experienced a mechanical keyboard, it's about time.
Summary: Let me just say that typing on this keyboard has been a joy since the first day that I opened the box. I came from using a Razer Black Widow which was also a quality keyboard but the LED was defective and I decided to go with a slightly smaller keyboard. I am so glad that I did. The additional keys for gaming make keeping your fingers in the proper place and add that different look to your keyboard that makes it stand out.
Summary: Amaaazing keyboard. Took me awhile to find out what type of switches i wanted but in the end i went with the mx red bc it was a little cheaper. Dont believe everyone saying the red switches are untolerable bc they really arent that bad at all. Sure they are sensitive but it just takes some time to get used to. Super smooth and bright LEDs. No complaints here.
Summary: Almost perfect. Pros: 1-Awesome backlighting 2-Very attractive keyboard(the black aluminum is beautiful and the wrist wrest is amazing) 3-I love that the entire top surface is aluminum 4-Great key feel 5-Heavy duty cord 6-Swappable WASD keys are great 7-Very solid construction 8-Key removal tool is genius 9-Controls (volume lughting etc) are very well done and not an afterthought like many keyboards) CONS 1- HUGE.. the keyboard is not recognized in BIOS by my computer.
Summary: Bought it on sale and was my first venture into mechanical keyboards. Love the amount of physical feedback it gives you. Light up LEDs are nice. I like the way that this thing is designed, in that it should make clean up of the keyboard very easy. The keys are easily removable with the tool provided and the keyboard is build such that any food or liquid will fall into channels around the keys instead of into the little inaccessible holes. Nothing bad to say here.
Summary: One of my favourite keyboards that I've ever owned. Feels natural under my fingers and the tactile response is excellent. Sturdy aluminum base and backlight make for an awesome looking piece on my desk, to compliment my system.
Paint Peeling After 6 Months, BUT Awesome Customer Service

Summary: After going through three Logitech keyboards in several years, I switched over to the Corsair because of the great reviews. However, I'm 6 months in and over the last week, the paint has begun to come off on the textured spacebar. And is continuing to peel at a fast rate. While Corsair offered to replace it, I don't feel it's bad enough at this time. If it continues to get worse then I will. However, I don't feel that paint should be peeling after 6 months of use at all.
FANTASTIC for FPS gamers, maybe lacking for MMO/MOBAS.

Summary: Fantastic keyboard for competitive gaming and daily typing. There's nothing finicky about this keyboard. The back lighting is pretty darn good, despite complaints that it is not consistent etc. The LEDs haven't failed at all yet after a couple weeks, nor should they. The textured WASD keycaps are such a bonus. They make FPS gaming really, really, easy.
Summary: Pros. I really love that you can take each individual key out. I mainly got this b/c it is back-lit and mechanical. I cannot really think of anything wrong with it. I mainly use this to play games such as league of legends and starcraft 2. I love the click each time i press a key. Cons Clicking sounds of button pressing is louder than i expected. I wish i got more of those red keys.
