Summary: While a nice keyboard, the switches are essentially mounted at the surface... It has absolutely zero tolerance to even a drop of liquid, and fails catastrophicly to any contact with liquid until it dries out. So If you are one to have a drink at your computer, do not buy this keyboard.
Pros: Satisfying feedback Feels nice
Cons: Zero liquid tolerance Switches are mounted at surface
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: score one for corsair, although the ghosting is annoying.
Pros: Excellent keyboard. Typing takes some getting used to coming from non mechanical to mechanical. smooth keypress, excellent layout.
Cons: I dont know if others out there have this same issue, but key ghosting. I use "WASD" keys frequently, and every so often one of the keys seems to stick. the switch itself isnt stuck, which is weird. also wish all the g keys were mechanical, unfortunatly the K95 came out about 2 weeks after purcha...
Summary: It's the only keyboard on the market that has the basics every keyboard should have. Unfortunately it's not made well and they know it and so you are stuck with a two year warranty. I'll buy it but treat it like a princess.
Pros: Full matrix, non-ghosting, rollover, mechanical keys, and macros.
Cons: They did not go the extra mile to make it robust. As can be seen many many people are returning the product in the reviews. Apparently if you spill your drink you destroy the keyboard! And finally it only has a two year warranty. TWO YEARS! Any decently made product of this type should have a 10 ...
Summary: I just submitted a RMA since the Keys no longer work correctly. I'll reply back to let ppl know if Corsair follows thru correctly.
Pros: Nice, Sturdy, Seems put together well. The blue light has 3 modes.Bright, brighter and brightest. 2 year warrentee. Different Macro Modes. Perfect for the Hardcore gamer that plays multiple games at the same time.
Summary: This keyboard has very high quality features including the blue backlight, aluminum frame, cherry mx red keyswitches, and programmable macro keys. It has some problems that may make you want to wait for the K95. The macro keys, command keys, and F keys are all membrane switch keys.
Summary: I've had mine for 9 months, and I only play an hour or 2 each day, and I am very easy on the keyboard. Well all of a sudden I start having problems with it. Some keys are somehow pressed down, causing problem when I click on websites, like the CTRL key, causing every click to open my links in new...
Pros: Good mechanical keyboard Multiple backlight settings are nice Keys aren't TOO loud, which is nice It's strong and firm
Cons: Takes 2 USB slots The design seems a little strange Mine Broked after 9 months of light usage
Pros: The volume slider is amazing. The key action on keys that are mechanical feel great, but that praise is more aimed at Cherry than Corsair. The cable is extremely solid feeling. The metal base the keys are mounted on is great feeling as well. Having onboard macro capability (vs. software) is nice ...
Cons: All the macro keys, the F1-F12 keys, Insert, Home, Page Up, Delete, End, Page Down, and even the Esc key ARE NOT MECHANICAL. I repeat 40 KEYS ON THIS BOARD ARE NOT MECHANICAL!!! If that doesn't bother you then this is a great board but for me this is a deal breaker and I am returning the board be...
Summary: I had this keyboard for about 5 or so months, loved it. One night I spilled some water on it, and it started typing the wrong keys. Went to use it the next day and it was dead. I admit fault, KBs shouldn't get water on them.
Pros: Great feel, great sound, great response.
Cons: Macro keys are too far away to be useful in many cases. Doesn't play well with Linux. Doesn't like baths.
