Summary: I have gone through several gaming or customizable keyboard over many years. My first with macro keys was the early 90s the Gateway Anykey that came with higher-end Gateway Computers. I liked the 24 macro keys and the 8-way arrow keys. It was a really ahead of its time keyboard.
Pros: Macros easy to record with or without adjustable delays
Cons: Cheap key caps or plastic like mechanical noise
Summary: Corsair support aside, it's a good keyboard.
Pros: Extremely sturdy, extremely solid chassis. Keys give excellent tactile and auditory feedback.
Cons: Key lights started dying after 7 months. Eventually had Corsair replace it with a new one. Replacement process took a long time, because they had none in stock. They gave me an express replacement when they did come back in stock, but it cost 18 dollars out of my pocket to ship the old one back t...
Pros: This is an amazing keyboard I could instantly fee the difference in everything i did. It was easier to push down keys the lighting was bright. The keyboard felt good. The volume roller is very nice. NO DEAD LEDS!!!
Cons: The keyboard died after 8 months. This keyboard collects material like crazy and needs air to clean out or removal of the keys. The software doesn't always save macros to internal memory.
Summary: As I'm writing this review, I've owned this keyboard for almost exactly 6 months. Two weeks ago, the G5's LED went out. Last week the G8's LED went out as well. Today, I turn on the backlighting to notice the G1, G13, G15, and the 0 LEDs have all died.
Cons: - The LEDs die quick. - While the extra G keys are great and all, they don't serve much of a purpose while gaming. However, they serve a great purpose for general things inside miscellaneous programs, such as Photoshop. (Great for macro-ing shortcuts to them.) - Attachment with the G keys is not ...
Summary: I contacted Corsair and they are going to replace my keyboard. I will have to pay shipping ... which is sad, but at least it will get fixed. They have also said that they have changed LED manufacturer's, so hopefully this LED problem will disappear ...
Pros: This is my first mechanical keyboard, takes some getting used to, but it is very sturdy and responsive thus far.
Cons: After just a little over 3 months, my first LED burnt out on my keyboard. Very unfortunate, but seems to be an issue with these keyboards.
Summary: Overall, the keyboard was great and the RMA process was relatively easy for me. I did get a new keyboard.
Pros: The keyboard was absolutely fantastic. I loved typing on Cherry MX Red swiches. The LED lighting was very nice with three different brightness levels (excluding no lighting).
Cons: The keyboard I received did not include a indicator on the "F" key so I know where my left hands were. So, typing seemed difficult, along with gaming, because I would often have to check which keys my left hands are on. Lighting on half of the whole keyboard went out. RMA was somewhat quick (2 we...
Summary: I was a very loyal Logitech buyer until the reviews i read on the K95 ( 2013) made it the choice to go. Guess who is going back to Logitech. If you don`t need the back lights it is a great keyboard, but not for the price when some options don`t work.
Pros: Great gaming keyboard, love the feel and response of it. I always use a lighted keyboard since I play mostly at night and don`t want to have room lights on.
Cons: Well after a couple of months lights started to fade or die out, not a real big issue until returning from vacation and shutting down my PC for two weeks, upon turning it back on most of the lights never came back on, tested it and found they are dead. put in a RMA that was accepted, but the issu...
Summary: I would have given it a 5 if not for the LED's burning out.
Pros: Over all a great keyboard and very responsive.
Cons: I have had this since Christmas 2013 and I have 18 LED lights already burned out. This next complaint is a little nit picky so take it with a grain of salt. The caps lock button is way to close to the "A" button. I am constantly hitting it when I am typing. Of course it doesn't help that I have b...
