Eh, not all it was supposed to be ...for me anyway

Summary: Cool board but mine seems to have a gremlin in it. Randomly just stops working , have to unplug then replug it and even then sometimes that wont work. I love the overall fall of the board just , kinda disappointed it only sometimes feels like doing its job.
Summary: This keyboard has been great for me. I don't mind the lack of click that comes with Cherry MX's to alert you that a key has been pressed. I use the keyboard for both writing related to my academic pursuits and gaming as related to telling n00bs off and rapidly typing 'power overwhelming' when I try to play starcraft.
Summary: I've had this keyboard for almost a year now. There is some adjustment time when getting used to typing on this keyboard. For playing games it's great. For typing it's ok. I feel much more comfortable typing on it now, although in the thick of a battle, I make a lot more typos when trying to chat in a game. It is quite heavy, which I like a lot, but it's awkward to grab when you want to move it. I've dropped it on my foot a few times and it is painful.
Summary: I absolutely love this keyboard. I've been using it for many months now and it still looks and functions like new. The Cherry switches are amazing. Once you start using them, you'll never want to go back. The brushed aluminum styling is sleek and durable. Classic layout is what I want; none of that ergo goofiness.
Summary: This isn't a keyboard for someone looking to get a cheap one just to work. This one is geared toward MMO gamers, but it is also very useful if you program, write code, or just need macros. I used this to play all genres of games, and it does a great job. I actually replaced my gaming PC with the K70 because this keyboard was so long that it didn't sit on my lap desk without hanging off the side.
Summary: I bought this as soon as it came out, and loved it. My only quibbles were that the game keys and function keys (F1-F12) were membrane instead of mechanical. Fast forward a while, and the K95 comes out with all mechanical keys. Naturally, I bought one. It is what the K90 should have been. If you are about to buy this now: don't. Get the K95 instead. The extra few bucks is well spent. However, it is still a great keyboard.
Summary: I bought two of these keyboards, one for myself and one for my girlfriend. Mine has been perfect for several months now. My girlfriends had an issue where after a short period of use the backlight would flicker and the keyboard would stop working. I tried everything to fix it, drivers, firmware, different usb ports, different computer etc. The only time it worked without issue was when it was plugged into a computer with a second K90 also plugged in.
Excerpt: Just not worth the money. Honestly, the K90 is uncomfortable to type on, and only offers MX Red switches. For 139$, I would expect at least some options. Sadly, Corsair doesn't give us any options and only offers red switches. The excuse is that it's best for gaming. Well, actually the best switches are all in personal preference. Some people like browns over reds for gaming, typing, etc.
Summary: Because keyboard switch types are completely up to personal preference, I cannot say this keyboard is for everybody, but for those who like Cherry MX reds, this board is AWESOME. I myself had never tried a MX red board before I purchased this one, but I must say I have become a fan. Moving on from the switches, the adjustable blue LED's, aluminum body, and raised keys give the board a very sleek, modern aesthetic while sacrificing nothing in terms of performance.
