Updated review. Purchased ~2012

  • Summary: The rest of the keys look like they are sealed by their bases, so why is it just the spacebar that has open circuit board? If it doesn't work, I'll likely be shopping for another Corsair product anyway.
  • Pros: -Fairly quiet for a mechanical keyboard. -Sturdy! I'll admit, I've got some anger issues while I play, but this keyboard was definitely sturdy. Held up strong to my abuse and some accidental drops. -Has a very nice feel while typing. It didn't take me long to get used to the transition to mechani...
  • Cons: -Firstly, RIP keyboard. It lived a long life. The ONLY complaint that I have, which is why it's now 4 eggs instead of 5, is a single slot which has open circuit board under it. I'm not sure if there was an actual purpose to having an opening under the spacebar, but all it took was one or two drop...

Great gaming KB, but started having issues after about a year.

Phillip S., Newegg
12 June 2015
  • Summary: If you're like me and only get about a year or two out of a gaming keyboard, then this one will do dandy. In the end, this model is actually a bit more durable and reliable than most.
  • Pros: Mechanical keys that feel very substantial and durable. Adjustable key backlighting, 18 macro keys with memory configurations, and onboard media buttons make this a gamer's dream.
  • Cons: After about one year (of heavy use mind you) a few of the keys started double and triple tapping on single key presses, and a couple keys would not press until pressed several times. Noticed the worst of it in the number pad. Typically I would deduct two or more stars for this, but considering I ...

Other than one thing

Erik Nordquist, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: Great, durable stuff. The only problem is occasionally a key, or the space bar, will decide that it wants to stay pressed internally after you've pressed the key, resulting in kkkkkkkkkkkkkk until you scramble for the letter and press it again...

Great keyboard

James Goddard, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • 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...

Built like a tank

Jonathan J., Newegg
22 October 2013
  • Summary: Many reviews complain that they keyboard isn't 100% mechanical but that hasn't bothered me. Their new revision is fully mechanical so get that if you want that (the K95, I think).
  • Pros: I like the keyboard. My first mechanical. Types fast. Solid construction. Thick braided cord is great quality. It survived spilled tea (1/3 cup) and when I picked it up the tea came pouring out there was so much.. Thankfully I didn't have sugar or cream, just straight tea. Let it sit for a few da...
  • Cons: The MMO keys have proven useless to me, even though I've been playing some MMOs. They make the keyboard too wide. The LED backlight reflects too much off the aluminum frame. I would prefer the light only come out of the keys themselves. The media control keys are too out-of-the-way (recessed) for...

Best keyboard I've ever used

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • 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.

Style and Performance

Gloria G., Newegg
16 July 2013
  • Summary: Amazing keyboard, with added function and style. My kind of thinking, as I care about styling and design a whole lot. Could have been a perfect score, but at the time of purchase (more than a year before Corsair launched their FULL mechanical keyboards) these were the best looking keyboards in my...
  • Pros: Cherry MX Red mechanical keys are a vast improvement from the typical rubber dome type keyboards that I've used all my life. Typing speed and accuracy have gone through the roof. Pre-mech keyboard speed approx. 80WPM, now I'm at about 100WPM. Fatigue is also lessened due to the keys needing less ...
  • Cons: At the time of purchase, this was one of the two mechanical keyboards Corsair offered. And both of them used mechanical keys on the main typing section, arrow keys, and numpad. The entire F-Key row, Page Up/Page Down section, and G-Keys were still using membrane switches. Which wasn't a complete ...

Corsair k90

Anonymous, Newegg
1 July 2013
  • Summary: I do spam alot while gaming and this is really helpful in sticky situations while gaming. My old 5$ keyboard didn't give as much responsiveness, and it was not tactile or clicky. This is a really big improvement when i bought this keyboard.
  • Pros: Cherry MX red switches (mechanical), comfortable, clicky and tactile, good media keys, backlit, keys are easy to remove and put back again, anti-ghosting <--( i really like this feature)
  • Cons: Not all keys are backlit and fully mechanical, that takes away an egg.

K90 Solid gaming board

Kyle V., Newegg
15 May 2013
  • Summary: It's a great keyboard, fantastic upgrade over ANY non-mechanical. There are plenty of macro-keys for the taking; however, setting them up for any specific in-game control has been impossible for me (lack of info online & lack of prior experience).
  • Pros: -Solid build, feels quality and sturdy -Thick/solid cord -Utility software to assist in setting up macros (Basic macros like copy/paste, open specific .exe)
  • Cons: -I have zero prior macro recording experience with keyboards. The basics are super easy using utility software, but anything advanced is very tricky to work into macros. -After extensive searching on corsair sight, conclusion is that they also don't know how to macro in-game controls. It's frustr...
