Absolute piece of crap. My F key is stuck and my spacebar doesn't even work. GARBAGE.
On my desk, I have way too many input devices. To save space, this 84 key mechanical keyboard does the job.
Losing the space the numeric keypad takes up allows me to use other input devices on my desk without having to move them to different spots.
With Cherry MX keys, this is a solid keyboard. Although with mech you get more clickity clack, the feedback is excellent and I enjoy typing on this keyboard. But the noise.... is less than desired especially if you stream and have to do work arounds on the open mic.
Here are some things that I wish they would improve and why I gave it 3 stars. I am being very critical here because this is not a cheap keyboard.
- This should be wireless.
- Needs to be quieter. For people who stream and game near an open mic, this can be improved on the hardware end.
- Price is too high. This is no more than a $80 keyboard. With less keys and plastic material being used it should cost less.
- Have more ergonomic tilt angles to work with. All keyboard manufacturers screw up on this part by not allowing different angle positions on the footer stops. There should be at least 4 heights with 2 degrees of variations.
- Cable takes up two USB ports. Its really a waste if one is not using the backside USB port for anything. Having a mouse connected to the back of the keyboard doesn't save anything. Its still wired and just adds more clutter with more of the mouse cable on the desk. More so, I imagine an USB input controller sitting inside the keyboard that queues up both keyboard and mouse input. Let the operating system decide who gets priority.
- iCue only allows up to 5 levels of lighting effects. This is really a problem for those who use applications (like games) that need to categorize lighting according to different game input categories. There is little point in owning a RGB keyboard if this is limited. If Corsair can do all sorts of library effeccts on 16 million RGB colors, whats the problem with having more than 5 static color overlays? Its static. If the problem is you can 't refresh fast enough then you got a design problem you need to address to fix your keyboard. So fix it!
I kind of miss the blue switches, but the red are a lot more silent and better for the desktop mic that I have.
I chose Corsair because I was tired of Razer's software, and they don't use real Cherry switches anymore. I bought my brother in law a Corsair keyboard a couple of years ago and was really impressed with the build quality and the functionality that they achieved without having obnoxious broken cloud software to keep the keyboard working (looking at you razer; it seriously baffles me how they simultaniously produce some of the best hardware and worst software to cripple said hardware).
I am familiar with the build quality because of the 3 times that my sister has asked me to repair her husbands keyboard. First because it drank a glass of wine, then a jack and coke, and finally a whole bottle of wine (keyboards in my family have a drinking problem, don't ask).
What was really impressive about the time it drank a bottle is that my sister was in Vegas at the time, and when she called to ask what to do I told her to unplug it and put it in a box and I would see what she could do when she brought it home. 3 months later she finally got it to me and it was moldy and nasty. I disassembled it, soaked it in alcohol overnight, scrubbed vigorously, and rinsed liberally with distilled water. After reassembly and lubricating the switches you wouldn't know that it had been through such terrible treatment.
Literally right before I purchase this keyboard I had same issue, a loud spring noise from the keyboard body.
I have done some research and found out that this horrible noise is caused by either lack of lubrication on the spring or Corsair used a cheap material for the keyboard. Or it is just simple defection.
Anyhow I really do want to use a noisy Red Switch keyboard because one of biggest selling point of red switch is the quiet sound of the key but Corsair failed it hard. Also as I mentioned I experienced same issue with previous keyboard. The previous keyboard was only around $20 and I cannot believe $70 keyboard does the same thing.
This keyboard was such disappointment and now I'm planning to move on to Razer Orange switch keyboard.

So I own a laptop, and the built-in keyboard on it is not the best. Therefore I decided to get a mechanical keyboard as a gift to myself for Christmas - and oh boy was I excited!
I was worried that the keys may too loud - but they are tactile enough, but not obnoxiously loud like the mx Blues! I would say they are around 25% quieter :P (Not saying the Blue switches are bad, I just personally think they're too loud for me). I don't mash my keys when I type, but I do know a lot of people who do - so yes, they will make noise if you're a hard, button-mashing kind of typist.
They also require less force to type on the keys, and this is a plus since I play a LOT of videogames that require the WASD keys. I have kinda small, girly hands for a dude and I find that they fit me perfectly.
Typing is also relatively simple enough from my transition from the standard membrane keyboard, but obviously still needs some getting used to.
There is also a software/program called CUE or something that you can download for free that allows you to customize the keyboard any way you want! Try it out.
Definitely get this on sale like I did - a great price on Amazon.
After almost an entire year of continued use and abuse, it’s still in great shape and going strong! No problems so far.
*Update* After almost 2 years, the metal logo on next to the Corsair letters have started to come off after me trying to wipe down my keyboard.
Primero, la sensación de un switch red es que la tecla tiene poca distancia de movimiento, por lo que se siente "plana" por llamarlo de cierta manera. Los switches azules hacen un click que es muy satisfactorio al tacto y al oído, estos solamente se bajan y ya, lo que lo hace ideales cuando necesitas reacción rápida, pero para personas como yo que teclean mucho, es mas agradable y menos fatigante la sensación de los Mx Blue. La sensación que me deja es que el tecleo es idéntico al de un teclado de membrana Logitech que tengo, por lo que no estoy muy contento con los switches Red.
La calidad de construcción es como se puede esperar de Corsair es buena, no me parece excelente ya que los bordes de la placa frontal son algo afilados, por lo que es desagradable pasar la yema del dedo o la mano por ahi. Las construcción es de plástico, que si bien hubiese preferido metal, es un plastico de buena calidad. Tiene un peso adecuado, con botones de medios básicos que no son obtrusivos . La iluminación LED es excelente, un rojo muy vistoso con diferentes settings, La calidad de las teclas es también muy solida . Un punto que le resta es que el cable no es removible, algo que debería ser obligatorio en un teclado de este precio.
Segundo, la forma, es un teclado tenkeyless, por lo que omite el pad numérico, yo no tengo monitor, uso mi PC con una mesita rodante frente a mi pantalla, por lo que tengo poco espacio disponible, asi que el no ocupar tanto espacio es fantástico y se acopla perfecto a mis necesidades
En general es un teclado bien hecho, que pudo ser mucho mejor en algunos aspectos considerando el precio, pero que no decepciona en ningún momento, mi único consejo es al respecto de los switches Mx Red, si teclean mucho, compren una versión que tengan Blue, si es para juegos o algún otro uso que requiere reacciones mas rápidas, los Reds serán lo que necesiten,
Returned. But it is nicely built and has a great feeling keyboard. The hardware guys are probably hating on the software guys right now.
If you use a KVM, good/bad news: it's functional using two USB 2.0 on the KVM (keyboard in and second USB 2 if you have one), but if the KVM is plugged into a USB 3 port on your pc, it'll overwhelm the USB 3 controller (google "Not enough USB controller resources"). And of course, native USB 3 KVMs are very expensive.
Love the leds, they are all even brightness and functional. I did find the lighting effects software buggy on windows 10. I find them distracting when flashing in my periphery while typing so that doesnt bother me to not use it. No broken keys/switches. This thing is built like a tank. The spec page on corsair site didn't mention that this has a steel inner plate (and its heavy). More expensive ones list this as a feature. Been using it for a week and it takes fingerprints a bit easily. No wrist rest included and its pretty high to the top of the keys. That and the o-rings would make it perfect. Good value at ~$105
