    This keyboard is one of the best keyboards I have ever used and here's why: 1. The lighting. It's all about the lighting for this keyboard. Each switch is individually lit and you get a 13-zone lightbar that wraps around the top. The lighting is very accurate and vibrant but thats isn't even the best part. With the Corsair CUE+ software you can customize it to your liking (see pic). I made my keyboard all vaporwave-y :) 2. Build quality is impeccable as usual from Corsair. The body is anodized black aluminum with silver accents. Every key very evenly balanced and stable on each press. The keys have a nice smooth feel to them, and Corsair has included Gaming WASD and QWERTY textured keycaps. 3. The media buttons are very thoughtfully arranged and solid feeling. They are also lit with RGB LEDs. 4. The keys, with their smaller travel distance, are very snappy and responsive feeling. I don't get fatigued at all with this switch type. The wrist rest is fantastic as well. It has two sides with different textures so you can customize it to your liking and is long enough to support your wrist with a very slight angle. I've been using mechanical keyboards for 6-7 years now and this is hands down the best one I have used since I started. In short, if you're on the fence buy this keyboard now!

    Pros: This is one great looking keyboard. The lights are good, although not as bright as others. The wrist rest was comfortable. It does have a volume control. Cons: -The keys were way too sensitive for me. I'm a pretty good typer and I kept bumping extra keys and of course, they registered. I told myself I just needed to get even better at typing. -The keys are really loud. -The software is buggy and not as friendly as other. The first thing I noticed is with the software running, you can't cycle through the profiles. Also, once I got some keys programmed, they only worked for a while and then stopped working. I finally shut down the software and the keys started working again. This was after programming all 3 profiles and the default profile with my keys. Way too frustrating for me to deal with. -The volume control was scratchy - like something was not quite right with it. Almost like a wire was rubbing against it while trying to adjust the volume.

    I bought this to replace my Corsair K65 Lux, and I am so amazed by the way it looks. It has the great built quality that Corsair always offers, with all the bells and whistles you can put on a Keyboard. It has a USB pass through for what ever you would like to use it for (I plug in my headset USB). Cable management slots under the keyboard so that no wires get in your way, and ofcourse the 6 G keys which works great for me since I love to play MMOs. Also I specifically got the gunmetal because it is a unique color only released in the US market and it looks fantastic. I personally wouldn't pay a price tag of $199.99 for this keyboard but if you get it on a good sale I recommend it. I got it on sale for $169.99 and my family had given me a $30 gift card so I truly paid $139.99 which is a much reasonable price. As much as I love the keyboard I don't believe its worth more than around ~$170 USB

    First off i'll say the K95 platinum is wonderful. I first bought the one with Cherry Mx BROWN switches in store and was kinda confused as to why they don't carry the K95 with Cherry Mx SPEED switches too. So i owned the brown switch for 12 days and decided to order the K95 with speed switches @BB.com. FOR ME the speed switches were that extra "oh that's it" feeling that i didn't seem to get with browns. I came from the Logitech ROMER-G switch so i was already used to the linear switch so i needed time to find what i liked with cherry switches and the Mx speeds hit it for me perfectly. Aside from that the keyboard is the same and if you find it on sale at $149.99 its a great buy. This keyboard will last me MANY years (also bought the warranty JIC) and I'm very happy with it.

    I was hesitant to purchase this keyboard due to the price point. However, after a lot of research and contemplating I decided to splurge and buy it. I definitely love the keyboard and think it is a perfect addition to any gamers PC setup. It does take some getting used to since the slightest touch will trigger the keys. Once you have adjusted to the keys they are amazing. They have a very satisfying feel to them. The RGB feature is also fantastic. If you don't need the macro keys then the K70 is an excellent alternative for a better price.

    This is by far the best keyboard I have ever owned. It is far superior to the corsair strafe with mx silent switches. The keys feel so crisp and clean to press thanks to the MX red speeds. The design is flawless the macro keys are helpful also. Corsair utility engine is amazing in 2018 no doubt there.

    Mine came defective. Volume scroll had some piece of plastic jammed underneath it so I had to return it for a new one. However the new one is perfect. I love the beautiful RGB led's around the back of the keyboard. Keys are extremely responsive and they feel great to type with. The hand rest has two sides which is also a plus. I just don't like how easy it is to get dust and other debris on it.

    I love the keys and how fast they register when I hardly touch them. It's a great gaming keyboard and love the RGB back lighting. Do I think it's worth $200? No I don't I got it for around $40 because of a sale and gift cards I had sitting around to use. It took a little while to get use to the keys but when you do you will love it.
