Summary: CORSAIR, I WANT MY MONEY BACK NOW. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR A KEYBOARD TO BE FAILING AFTER ONLY 9 MONTHS OF LIGHT USAGE.
Pros: it works sometimes ?
Cons: I've only had the ******** keyboard for 9 months, and it's already losing connection when I tilt it a bit. No, my USB port is fine. My keyboard I'm using right now (my old one, a Saitek) is also USB and is working perfectly. I'm so angry I could spit nails. CORSAIR, I WANT MY ******* MONEY BACK!!...
Cons: 5 minutes ago, my PC wouldn't wake from sleep. I hit the reboot button, and then it stopped at post, and powered off... corsair should be glad my asus R5E's USB over current protection protected all 12 of my drives, my X-sku CPU, and my 64gb of ram.
Defective replacement, BEWARE of a possible defective batch

Pros: the keys feel great and the customizable backlighting is easy to use and yields great results
Cons: Unfortunately, after receiving my initial defective unit, I decided to try much luck with Corsair again and order a new one, arriving at the conclusion that the chance of me getting a 2nd defective one was low and no competitor offered the same features. The 1st had a defective volume wheel that ...
Cons: Honestly, given how saturated the mechanical keyboard market is, there really are no excuses for such poor quality control at this price. I just received mine and the volume wheel (a feature I was looking forward too) makes grinding noises and has varied resistance. Also, the C key's switch is no...
Terrible quality control, unacceptable for a premium priced product

Pros: Most keys feel great and the backlight is pleasant: not too bright, not too dim
Cons: While this may seem like a minor inconvenience, the fact the volume wheel makes grinding noises when spun just speaks to the terrible quality control Corsair has. At this price point, I expected my keyboard to at least function properly on arrival. Instead, I got a faulty keyboard and will have t...
Summary: I bought this as a Christmas present, and was delighted to see it working, until the issue with the backspace key was identified. For such an expensive piece of hardware, one would think that QA would have tested each and every key for defects.
Pros: Lighting seems to work as advertised. Most keys seemed to work as advertised.
Cons: Faulty backspace key switch. The Brown Cherry switch, when pressed, would not return to its default raised state unless manually pulled up with some force. Seems like a bad switch (and something QA should have caught).
