LEDs

Anonymous, Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Pros: The keyboard has a nice feel to it. Good design makes it easier to clean. That's about it
  • Cons: Most of my LEDS are burnt out. The software is absolute gargabe. I didn't spend over $100 for parts to start failing me.

Terrible software, defective hardware

Deja S., Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: The keyboard looks great, the LEDs are nice and bright (until they start burning out). This is a major problem with the white-LED K95s, If you are bent on getting this keyboard for some reason, you'd be better off buying it in-store locally, and springing for the IPR; it'll save you hassle and...
  • Pros: Nice design; looks and feels great
  • Cons: LEDs burn out really quickly; have to ship back to Corsair for a fix. Software is absolutely terrible; it has less functionality than the SW for my 9-year old Logitech G11

Update from 8/20/14

Adam C., Newegg
30 January 2015
  • Summary: This may be a little nit picky so take it with a grain of salt. The caps lock button is way to close to the "A" button in my opinion. I am constantly hitting it when I am typing. Of course it doesn't help that I have big fingers, but I never had this issue with other keyboards
  • Pros: Nice Looking Keyboard
  • Cons: So I have had this keyboard just over 2 years now. It still functions properly, but I don't think it's as responsive as when I first bought it. At 1st it did not bother me that the LED lights were burning out, but now over half the LED lights are out. It makes me angry that I spent so much money ...

My first mechanical keyboard.

Sultan E., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: I used it incredibly lightly. I work every day from 10 to 8, meaning on average I only use it for 2-3 hours per day at night. For it to have had all those LED failures with such usage- I am extremely disappointed.
  • Pros: - Action feels decent. - LEDs were nice for the first few weeks.
  • Cons: - Huge - Keys seem oddly "tall", I had little clearance between the keyboard and my desk. - LED failures. I had this keyboard for three weeks before the first LED failed, after that they stopped working one by one until I replaced it, after about six burnt out.

Dead LEDs rampant. On my 3rd RMA now.

Lawrence G Mabilangan, Amazon
2 January 2015
  • Summary: Stepping up from a standard membrane keyboard, this mechanical keyboard is a pleasure to use. That's where it ends. I'm currently about to send in my 3rd keyboard in less than a year after my purchase for dead LEDs.

Depends on personal preference

tech.kyle, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: Being one of Corsair's flagship keyboards, I found it slightly disappointing. Unboxing the keyboard, I was quick to notice the sturdiness and weight of it. The overall feel gave me a sense that it was built well. My first impression was that I certainly wasn't a fan of the MX Red switches.

LED lights have begun to fail

Shawn G., Newegg
7 November 2014
  • Summary: I will continue to use this for now but if more LEDs fail, I will initaite a RMA. Good thing I kept my Logitech G series keyboard.
  • Pros: Red keys are really soft and great for if you have tendonitis like myself.
  • Cons: Got this back at the end of April 2014 and noticed today (Nov 2014) that one LED light has failed. I've never gamed with it and only have this keyboard because it does not aggravate my tendonitis as much as other membrane keyboards. I only use it for an average of 4 hrs a day, sometimes even less...

Good Keyboard, but has issues

Joshua K., Newegg
18 October 2014
  • Summary: Overall, if you're looking for a great keyboard to actually type on, this is a great one. If you're looking for something that all the features are going to last, you may want to look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Awesome typing feel Wonderful key action for typing (I'm a developer so I'm also typing) Good feature set Volume wheel is awesome
  • Cons: Backlighting - I've had the keyboard for roughly 3 months now, and the light under the "I' and the down arrow keys have quit working. It doesn't seem to affect that type typing at all, but with the cost of this keyboard, I would have expected more than 3 months before the LEDs started going out o...

Expect your LEDs to burn out quickly.

MWR, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Keyboard is fine. The LEDs are crap, though. I noticed right away four of my keys (F1, F4, F6, F9) are not lit. No big deal, as I don't really use them all that much. A week later I notice another LED no longer working (comma key). JUST NOW noticed my G6 key is no longer lit up.
