-Cherry MX Brown switches do not disappoint on this board, from the feel of actuation to the sound of the full keypress is really satisfying, I see a lot of people complaining about how "loud" this keyboard is and personally I just don't see (or hear) it. It's exactly as loud as you expect any mechanical keyboard to be, especially with browns, especially with these types of keycaps, especially with an aluminum frame, and it's ESPECIALLY far less loud than blue switches.
-The RGB backlighting. ( The obvious reason you're sinking the extra bucks on this as opposed to the normal K70 ) is in a single word, awesome. The possibilities provided by the RGB LEDs and the panasonic controller are nearly limitless and I've been fiddling with lighting profiles for a couple days straight now and you can do some really amazing things, to do in depth would extend this review an extra couple thousand characters so I implore you to visit youtube and the corsair forums and check out some of the stuff that other people have come up with.
-This thing is SOLID, weighing in at about 4.5 pounds with the aluminum frame, braided cable, the ergonomics of the board alongside the included wristrest, and the well placed media keys you can tell this keyboard is going to last you a very very long time if you treat her right.
-The software is EXACTLY as bad as you've all heard people say it is. There's an enormous use barrier from unboxing to creating and importing profiles that took me way longer than I would have liked, though it was in part due to my own stubbornness. The quick start guide and full manual provided are (unlike many use manuals) EXTREMELY helpful easy and smooth reading, I implore anyone who buys this keyboard to not go at it with the "I can do it myself" attitude and just check out the guides to save yourself some time.
-The price. This is a bit of a shaky topic as Corsairs RGB board is hands down the best on the market with Logitech and Razer taking up the rear, but at the end of the day is it worth the STILL INCREASING price of the Corsair Gaming Keyboards even as pretty as this thing is? Unless you're really interested in aesthetics and have money to burn on such an item, no probably not. You can get the exactly the same functionality out of the stock standard K70 from someplace like Newegg and save yourself a ton of money.
One last qualm I have this this keyboard is the advertisement that you see that there are a possibility of 16.8 million colours and while this is certainly true, can you actually tell the difference between tens of thousands of shades of pinks and purples, reds and blues? No, not really. This is more of a personal issue than anything but it's something to think about.
It has feet and rubber pads(front and rear), on the bottom that allow it to be adjusted to several different angles.
The wrist rest has a surface that almost seems rubbery. I'm not sure it is rubber; it may just be a soft feel plastic. In any case, it also is quality and feels nice.
A lot of Corsair long time customers are angry over the logo on this keyboard. They changed it from the "Sail" to this new Winged...? logo. I didnt buy it because of the logo. But I agree the Sail logo would have been cooler. And the logo is not lit. That is certainly something that they can add in future models...A lit Sail logo; would be very cool.
This is my first keyboard with the Cherry MX switches. I did some research and decided on the "Brown" version of the switch. I have no experience with the other switch types, but I think I made the right choice. The "tactile" feel to these "brown" switches is very minor. It can hardly be felt. And the tactile function does not slow the switch down in any way. Those that argue they can repeatedly push the non-tactile switches faster are fooling themselves. Also, these "brown" switches are plenty loud enough. There is no need to get the "Blue" switch with its extra "click". In fact if anything the "brown" switches are too loud. I don't type much. But I can see where in an office environment, the clicks from these switches bottoming out and being released could become annoying to those around you. I think they make o-rings for these switches to make them quieter. But I don't know about that yet. I may buy some just to try them.
The basic lighting is fine for me. It can be turned off or adjusted to 3 different brightness levels from a button on the keyboard. I also like the speaker buttons. The sound is easily muted or the volume adjusted up or down with the wheel.
If you only have USB 2.0 on your computer, you will need to use both USB plugs. If you have USB 3.0, you only have to use one.
I don't use the "macro" function, so I cannot comment on that, other than that it is my understanding a macro can be assigned to any key.
I didn't buy this because of the "...pulsing, waving and cascading lighting in 16.8 million colors." However that is certainly very cool and a good reason to buy it. I just dont have the time to do that. What I have found however, is that I can download "profiles" where others have taken the time to create some really cool lighting patterns. I have downloaded a few of those. Very easy and kinda cool.
The buttons with symbols on the bottom as well as the top are not lit very well. The buttons need to be re-designed so the light is uniformly distributed.
Whether the purchase price can be justified will depend a lot on how long these switches really last. We will see in a year or so.
After a few days I realized my 5 star rating was unfair. My original review is the same. But I have to drop this to a 4 because:
1. I am not a keyboard expert and I know nothing about the software or programming the fantastic lighting. So I am not in a position to give this a 5 when I know nothing about the most important part of this keyboard.
2. While the buttons not being lit evenly does not really bother me; it does bother me that Corsair sold it knowing the buttons were like this. This is an issue that should have been fixed before this product hit the market.
3. Kinda wish they would put the original "Sail" logo on it.
