Summary: I cannot recommend this keyboard in good faith because of the severe lack of quality in the backlighting. I am very disappointed in COrsair for both the build quality and support I received, and I wish I had never sold my K90 because it was superior to this version in my opinion.
Pros: I really like the idea behind this keyboard. A mechanical keyboard with 18 programmable macro keys is incredibly useful in gaming. The aluminum construction makes it feel very sturdy.
Cons: The backlighting on this keyboard is not built to last. I had to send one in for several issues early on, including some keys whose backlights had died within only a couple months. I have had the replacement I received for over two years, and no less than 8 of the keys no longer have functioning ...
Summary: I will never buy Corsair as long as I live. I can't wait to read about the company going out of business. I feel violated as a consumer - my trust has been shattered.
Pros: In the words of Boris the the Bullet Dodger- "if it doesn't work you can always hit them with it." The keyboard is heavy so since the keys WILL go out on you...it's a good thing you can always hit them with it.
Cons: LEDs drop like flies IMMEDIATELY out of the box. This is after my first RMA which was a MASSIVE hassle. HAd to pay for shipping then wait for several weeks for a my new keyboard. It too was terrible. So you just have to realize you've been had and wait for someone to sue Corsair in a class-action...
Summary: The keyboard still functions as a keyboard, and so I feel that the hassle to send it back doesn't outweigh the annoyance. I will not be sending this one back, but I will not be purchasing another keyboard from Corsair.
Pros: The keyboard is satisfying to type on. The while back-lights are gorgeous. It is easy to program in various macros.
Cons: Eleven months after purchase I turn on my computer and notice seven LEDs have stopped functioning and do not light with any possible lighting configuration.
Pros: The feel of the keys are just so nice along with the response time! It's like I can't live without this keyboard but, it has become a love/hate relationship!
Cons: Oh the LED's on this board just are not up to snuff. W A S D aren't burnt out and those are the ones I use a lot. This is the second one after an RMA for the same thing and I don't know if I want to start it again. Even if I qualify for one. It sure is a big disappointment for a longtime Corsair ...
Summary: Corsair once made a quality product but they have really declined in quality that last few years, And their new logo sucks.
Cons: Corsair has asked me to revise my negative reviews of their products but will not acknowledge the fact they some of their products I have received are defective and expect me to pay to ship their defective products back at my own expense, to have them ship me the same defective yet refurbished mo...
Summary: Will be trying Razer on my next Gaming rig build.
Pros: Looks cool when advertised.
Cons: My last PC build had the case, mother board, cpu, ram, hard drive, ssd, dvd, fans etc had zero problems. They were all not from Corsair. My PSU, keyboard and mouse all from Corsair all failed. The power supply was D.O.A right out of the box. Corsair had me pay $38 for return shipping to receive t...
Summary: I use it with an M95 and I gotta say this one is one of the best keyboards in the market. Macro keys and the software are easy to use. The macros on the macro keys work pretty well and work on every game that I play (like one key to eat snacks in GTA5).
Pros: White Backlighting Quality Not flimsy at all like some other brands Sail Logo (not the Corsair Gaming Logo) Macro Keys Easy to use software Full MX Red Plain black color Keyboard memory
