Why I prefer this keyboard compared to the Razer & other Corsair Keyboards.
- I love the texture of the keys. I did change mine from the black to the Corsair white keys. But both the original and Corsair White replacement keys feel so good on the fingertips. I changed mine simply for more color on my desk.
- Volume dials and easily accessible buttons. Nowadays, I must have a volume dial on my keyboards. It's easy to listen to spotify and just hit next, turn up & down the volume. It's also nice being able to see if you have your Numlock on as well as the ability to "lock, turn off lighting" directly on the keyboard.
- Functionality. This keyboard offers amazing software. It was simple for me to setup, easy to customize. I love that you can use Corsair Link if you have other Corsair Products. (as I use a Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB for gaming)
- Simplicity & Elegance. This keyboard is just beautiful to look at. I personally prefer the RGB lighting on top compared to my other Razer Hunstman Elite. I just feel it's a more elegant keyboard to look at.
- The material the keyboard is made of is top notch. I love the aluminum frame. When you are installing or moving it. You can just feel the quality of this keyboard.
- Works perfectly after removing/replacing the keycaps. I had issues with Razer keyboards in the past that keys would get stuck after replacing. Not an issue at all with Corsair. Still running strong.
- Lastly - this keyboard is easy to clean. I've used other keyboards that just tends to get anything and everything inside it. I love the raised keys so you can use a little air can and get any dust or particles off the keyboard easy. I also have no problem keeping the face of the keyboard clean.
- The only thing I can come up with that I would improve upon on this keyboard is the wrist rest. I don't care that it doesn't have RGB, I actually prefer it not to but the wrist rest has a slant and doesn't really help prevent me for long hours of gaming or web/graphic design when I spend all day on the PC. I think it needs to be a bit more elevated and less slope. This is easily replaceable though with any wrist rest you prefer. I like the memory foam 1/2 inch to 1" thick wrist rest for long hours of use to help prevent carpal tunnel.
Photos: I took one of the full keyboard, along with zoomed in larger photos so you could see the design and layout up close and personal.
Changes: Replaced the original keys with CORSAIR Gaming PBT Double-Shot Keycaps Full 104/105-Keyset - White. This is not necessary for those who prefer the black original keys. I replaced mine for visual preference to match other desktop accessories like Yeti White microphone and White AudioEngine speakers.
Length of Use: We purchased the product on Sept. 5th 2018. I prefer to install/use the product before I leave feedback on a product because I want to give a thorough review after use. I use the keyboard for at least 8-12 hours a day and almost 6 days a week.
Im writing thiss review using my sssecond k95, the first one i haad to return due to similar errors.
You will notice severaaal extraa S's & AA's & CC's registering more thaaan once or not regisstering aaat aaall, on one cclick. Thesse are not typos this is wht is haappening with my keyboaaard right now.
If you aare aa Gamer you know we use our W,A,S,D keys to move and I do not game every day aand I certaaainly don't haaammer my keys.
I usually buy nothing but corsair, my maaachine looks like a billboaard for their compaany.
But this is the laast time I purccchaasse aa Corsair keyboard. At the price I expecct more quaality.
Sinccce I prccchaaased this keyboard in Jaanuaaaary I aaam probabbly out of luck on a 3rd replaacement.
I thought moving up from the k70 would be aan upgraadde but its aa nightmaare.
A reaal shame ssince I kinda liked this keyboard when it worked thaaat is...
-Key pressing feels great. The feedback and sound is super gratifying.
-The LED's color range, brightness, and programmable display patterns are impressive.
-The software capabilities for programming LED's and Macros are wonderful once understood.
-The keyboard has no latency whatsoever IMO.
-I can't seem to overstate how well made this keyboard feels. The base is metal and heavy feeling. The wrist rest rotates, the mounting is easy, the rubber part is held on with a magnetic strip so you can pop it off and clean it easily. The keys respond well and the switch mechanism feels solid. There is no play in the keys except to give for typing. The volume roller bar is solid and moves well. This keyboard is a wonderfully made device.
-This keyboard can sync with other Corsair LED lit devices to have a continuous pattern.
-The software can take a couple of minutes to understand, but I must say that I figure anyone willing to spend close to $200 on a keyboard is probably PC savvy enough to figure out pretty simple programming software.
-The macro profiles saved to the device firmware don't allow certain higher functions that are saved to the PC profies such as program launching. Also certain lighting profiles that you can stack on the PC profiles (such as have a base static color and other moving light profiles on top of the static one) don't save to the hardware firmware. I understand that some of this is more than likely a storage size issue or the fact that one pc to another will have different program save data paths so it makes sense, I just want to note that it exists.
Overall impression: I would recommend this keyboard to anyone with the cash to spend on this wonderfully built and designed piece of hardware. It has truly been a treat to own and operate this keyboard.

Now coming to the BAD experience. The corners of the keyboard gave electric shock whenever my hand touched it. I have kids at home, so can't take a chance. Must be a manufacturing defect. Had to return the Keyboard. A keyboard made of plastic material may not have caused this.
Let me start this review by saying this is the best looking RGB keyboard I have ever used, with the best implementation of RGB (the light bar truly is nice). However, I believe in functionality as well, which is where this keyboard does abysmally.
I am coming from a Logitech G710+, so take this into account: it's not the best, as I'm aware it's still just a "gamer board" and is just cheaply made to maximize profit margins. I'm aware it doesn't hold a candle to enthusiast keyboards, such as the Ducky line, etc.
Let me get into the pros of this keyboard: the RGB. That's it. The corsair software (iCUE) is quite customizable, with many different RGB profiles to use. However, it doesn't have in-game effects the way razer does with their SDK integration with games like Overwatch and Rocket League. Thankfully, there are solutions: RETC, and better yet, Aurora, can be used to inject and emulate said SDK functionality, so your Overwatch abilities affect their respective keys when on cooldown, and with Aurora you can even mirror the effects of, say, E to the entire numpad, so it's more visible when it's on cooldown.
Now for the cons: everything else. The build quality, the keycaps, the media keys, the volume roller, the feet.
This keyboard is aluminum plated, so it feels premium, but it somehow manages to be a lot lighter than my all-plastic Logitech G710+.
The feet fold in sideways toward the center of the keyboard, meaning you CANNOT slide the keyboard sideways, otherwise one of the feet will naturally collapse as that's how they're designed to close. They should have been made to collapse toward the front of the keyboard, which is how my G710+ is.
The keycaps are HORRENDOUS!!! If you get this keyboard, it is imperative that you also get a good set of keycaps. However, at the price point of this keyboard ($250), it is reasonable to expect the keycaps won't be absolute garbage. But alas, such is the case! Contrary to the product title saying "Tactile and Quiet," The Cherry Mx Brown version of this keyboard is in fact NOT quiet in the slightest. Sure, the switches don't click, but the keycaps clack so loudly that even if the keyboard used Blues, you still probably wouldn't be able to hear them click on top of the incessant loud keycaps bottoming out. O-rings are REQUIRED, and unlike the G710+, this does not come with them. Again, at this price point, it is reasonable to expect it comes with something small like this.
The media keys are flimsy and mushy. They feel very cheap and fragile. I’ve nothing good to say about them. I used AutoHotKey to make the PauseBreak key to act as Play/Pause so I wouldn’t have to use this keyboard’s media keys.
The volume roller. Oh, the volume roller! This keyboard has a really nice volume roller, which is quite satisfying to use. However, every time I used it, I ran the risk of my keyboard completely going unresponsive! I’ve been able to reproduce this half a dozen times consecutively on clean boots. Whenever it’s being used, there’s a chance for it to start making the volume go in the direction it was going (let’s say up) and there is NOTHING you can do to make it stop. You can use windows volume mixer and drag the slider back down, but it will just continue going back up. Luckily for me I was able to plug in my G710+ and use its volume wheel to go up, then back down to cancel the volume increasing. However, even still, the K95 would remain completely unresponsive. None of its keys or volume wheel would work until you reboot your computer.
Now, imagine you’re playing a competitive game and you decide to change the volume. Having your keyboard lock up like this, forcing you to restart, would result in being penalized for leaving the match, risking a ban on your account. This is completely unacceptable, especially for a $250 keyboard! What are you even paying for at this point?
Finally, small nitpick: the light bar. It sounds great as a concept, but just once you see its reflection in your monitor you’ll instantly want to turn it off (which thankfully, you can). So what’s the point of a light bar then? It gets in the way. Unless you have a wall mounted monitor that’s so high you won’t see the reflection of the lightbar, there’s no good reason to use it.
I cannot recommend this keyboard to anyone, even at a discount. There's no reason to have to put up with a keyboard which can lock up for no reason. Look for a better product. I hear the CoolerMaster MasterKeys Pro L is the best quality "gamer board." I will definitely be looking into that or even a non-gamer board.
Como es costumbre Corsair utiliza materiales de la mejor calidad.
En la parte frontal encontraremos una superficie de aluminio cepillado y unas teclas distribuidas de manera perfecta, cada switch tiene su foquito LED individual para que la luz sea distribuida de manera uniforme. Las teclas G estan alineadas y su textura es diferente haciéndolas fáciles de identificar, los botones de perfiles, luz y lock windows son personalizables y no seguirán el efecto de luz que le des a las demás teclas (su color sera estático). En los controles de sonido lo que mas me gusto fue la rueda de volumen que es 100 veces mejor que un botón.
La cubierta posterior es de plástico resistente la cual tiene un surco en forma de X para acomodar cables delgados como por ejemplo el del mouse también tiene unas patitas para levantar e inclinar el teclado.
A lado del cable tiene una entrada USB.
En cuanto a los Cherry MX Speed son silenciosos a diferencia de otros switch y son muy sensibles, en lo personal me tarde un poco en acostumbrarme a escribir sin presionar teclas de mas y me gusta que su sonido no llega a ser tan ruidoso.
Incluye teclas extra con textura diferente ya sea para MOBA (QWERDF) o para FPS (WASD), una pequeña herramienta para remover las teclas
y un descansa muñecas removible y reversible con 2 texturas diferentes.
La aplicación de corsair es poco intuitiva pero esta muy completa, inclusive puedes descargar perfiles personalizados en la pagina de corsair.
• Materiales de calidad.
• 6 macros por perfil (3 perfiles).
• Cherry MX Rgb.
• Descansa muñecas removible.
• Teclas multimedia, rueda de volumen.
• Puerto USB extra.
• 8mb de almacenamiento para perfiles.
• No es a prueba de agua.
• Solo tiene 1 entrada USB.
• Para usar el puerto USB tienes que conectar los 2 USB del teclado a tu computadora.
• Para usar el teclado en BIOS necesitas presionar F1+Windows lock key.
El teclado no muestra la letra Ñ fisicamente sin embargo esta configurado para que aparezca al presionar la tecla siguiente de la L.
El paquete llego en perfectas condiciones en el tiempo especificado y me costó $3,290.
