Summary: Keyboard by itself was great--lights were bright, keys responsive, looks clean, etc. But after 9 months, all at once, my $130 keyboard lost LEDs for 5,6,8,y,u,f,g,h,j,c,',\,],p,ctrl,command, right arrow, numpad 0, and numpad enter keys. What the??! This is not okay at all. I'm going through Corsair RMA. If they make me pay for shipping to send back a defective product, the one star stays up.
Summary: As many others have said, the LEDs on this keyboard die. I've lost 15 on mine, and it is less than a week out of warranty. The LEDS still light up, but very dimly to the point you have to be in a very dark room to notice, and only then with the keycaps off. For a premium keyboard this is absolutely NOT satisfactory. Any help out there?
Summary: I bought this keyboard a few months ago in Feb. 2014. It was a replacement for a Logitech G15 gaming keyboard I'd had nearly 4.5 years before it died (it did great for a $99 keyboard that sees extensive daily use!). I enjoyed that G15 immensely, and it had everything I needed, so I wanted a new keyboard with a lot of the same features.
Summary: After years of gaming as well as using my PC for non-gaming purposes utilizing inexpensive, non-mechanical keyboards I finally caved-in and decided to spend some cash to get a good mechanical keyboard. I've long used Corsair products in my PC builds including most notably Corsair RAM, PSUs, and cooling solutions. After batting around a few different keyboard manufacturer brands including Logitech, Razr, Steelseries, and Corsair I settled on the K95.
Summary: Firstly, this is a very very nice keyboard. The tactile feedback is excellent. I love the fact that you have 18 programmable keys. The 3 light levels are pretty good (i.e. brightest is good in the dark and the least brightest is good during the early evening). However I must state that I am extremely disappointed in the burn out rate of the LEDs. At present my 1, D, F, G and B keys no longer light up. I wish there was a way to change out the LEDs.
Summary: I bought this keyboard in January 2014 and 5 of the keys LEDs have gone out. I'm losing one per week now and plan on returning it for a replacement (hopefully). Also the cherry red key are too sensitive so if you are a gamer forget about resting you fingers over an often used key. Also I found the software for setting up the macros inferior to Logitechs and you can't save your macros if you replace them.
Summary: I purchased this keyboard in October 2013. In February, the keyboard popped and started smoking leaving a burnt smell. The keyboard is under warranty, however, after 2 weeks of online support I have not been able to receive an RMA number for return. Not only is the durability questionable, but the technical support is below average. Not happy with Corsair.
Summary: LED lamporna lyser fint i mörkret, knapparna är så mekaniska dom kan bli, och armstödet är av ett skönt gummi material.e Finns ingenting att klaga på. G-knapparna använder jag mig inte utav, men man vet inte i framtiden :) Min polare spillde ut lite cola över tagentbordet imorse, tagentbordet rök DIREKT, öppningen vid space knappen för kretskortet är stor, och hamnade rakt ner i skiten, blir ingen garanti på detta, han får helt ekelt pröjsa mig :)
