    I love the Lights and the switches. You can download different profiles for the lights and some look really cool. This is a great keyboard but should be a little cheaper.

    When I bought my new desktop it came with this tiny lil keyboard....needed an upgrade...im not a gamer but often prefer lower light. The lighting us wonderful I only twice have played with the color setup. Love it so much. Nice feel to upgrade back to full size and mechanical keyboard without all the extras needed for a gamer

    A quiet keyboard for being mechanical. The color led lighting options are great.

    This is my 2nd Corsair Strafe with the Cherry MX Reds Silent switches and if they ever stop making this particular keyboard then I do not know what I'd do. This being the second generation of the Strafe it has gotten alot more love from Corsair. The audio wheel is a great option and I'm glad they added it. Having the separate switches for the rgb lights on the top left are better placement and the Windows key to keep stray key presses from opening Windows while you game. Not to mention they still have the textured key caps and puller to use them on the most common keys for gaming. The Corsair logo and badge are a lot better looking too placed at the top middle. I can't say enough good things about the changes Corsair made to this keyboard, the lights are always awesome and not too bright or distracting. As well they are not too dim, just the perfect amount of light here. The ICue software lets you sync to other Corsair rgb products too. So yea, I have not had any negative experience and I really like this Strafe MK.2 even better than the first gen. It's all I ever want to use for gaming or regular computer typing. It's perfect to me.

    It's so quiet but had that "click" you look for with a great mechanical keyboard. The rgb lighting is very bright but can be adjusted on the fly. Amazing keyboard!

    Bought this keyboard about 6 months ago and it's probably the coolest part of my gaming setup! The colors are crisp and the interchangeable tactile buttons feel great. The lighting with iCue makes for some great customisable color schemes that can get quite complicated!

    I am upgrading from the previous version of this keyboard and I am taken aback by the improvement. It's much quicker and quieter. The lights and the new setup are more impressive.

    After comparing various models, this keyboard had many of the features as the higher priced models but for a susbtantially lower price. Nice feeling silent mx keys , beautiful individually configurable rgb backlighting, and onboard profile storage. Overall the best keyboard ive purchased. Awesome value.

    Smooth super nice key stroke feel for mechanical without the noise. Lights are vibrant and the software is easy to use. Gameplay is very responsive and have had no issues with FPS games. Combat games such as WOT are awesome. All around superb keyboard for the price.

    I debated on this keyboard for a solid four of five months before going into a best buy, asking an associate if I could open the box to test the keys, and then immediately buying it on the spot. Keys/switches The keys are springy, much like MX Brown keys are, but are about the volume of a large membrane board, something like the old lenovo wireless keyboards if anyone remembers those. If you have any experience with the free keyboard from iBuypower it's about the same volume, maybe a little bit quieter. The keys are also very well spaced which is good if you are someone who has larger fingers, or tends to type on the edges of the keys. RGB The RGB lighting has a fully adjustable brightness setting in the iCue software, and of course full customization of colors and themes. Though personally I find anything other than a static color to be distracting the option is definitely there. Fit/finish The rubber wrist guard is comfortable, and almost necessary as the edge without it's quite sharp. The metal finish panel at the top of the keyboard is a very smooth brushed aluminium that feels very high quality. The rubber feet, and the wight of the board keeps everything well in place, even on a smooth desk. Volume rocker is responsive and has a good amount of resistance to it. All in all if you like the feeling of a mechanical keyboard, but MX Blue/Brown/Red switches drive you insane I HIGHLY recommend this board, you will not be disappointed.

    Beautiful keyboard. I got this keyboard with a Razer Mamba Elite mouse and the two look like they were made to go together. Especially at night, the glowing colors are so lovely to watch. The keys are a bit higher than the standard keyboard I was using before, which has taken some getting used to. Also, this keyboard comes with an extra set of WASD and QWER keys that are slightly slightly textured and slanted. I guess they're to help gamers get a better grip. I did try replacing the QWER keys as I am a League player, but couldn't get used to the weirdness of the keys being at odd angles and ended up putting the standard keys back. Luckily the keyboard comes with a little device for popping keys out of place. Overall a great keyboard but I would recommend testing the responsiveness of the keys before purchasing if possible. The keys do have a bit of resistance and height that some people may find hard to adjust to. It is definitely not a "soft" keyboard.

    Great Keyboard / Bad Wrist Rest

    Pros: The keyboard itself is amazing. It works well and was by far the most silent mech keyboard on the market. Its even quieter than some membrane keyboards I have used. Very reliable and the lighting was perfect. Cons: The only bad thing about this board, which actually lead me to return it was the wrist rest. This keyboard, along with most mechanical keyboards, is pretty thick. While this may not bother some people, for me I need a wrist rest to help compensate for the added height. I own a K95 that I use for work and thought the wrist rest would be close to that. However, it was a good inch shorter. This lead to my palms resting on the desk pretty much making the wrist rest a moot point. It's sad because it's an amazing board and if they just used the same rest as they do on the K95 it would be prefect. I even tried 3rd party rests but couldn't find one that felt right so I returned it for another K95 with MX browns.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
