    I'd heard a lot about the benefits of mechanical keyboards for gaming, so I did some research and decided to take the plunge. I dislike "clicky" keyboards, so I made sure to look for quiet or silent key switches. This keyboard uses Cherry MX Red switches, and they're generally very quiet, though I do hear some noise when keys lift back into position (not enough to bother me, though). The lighting effects are a secondary concern for me, but I had no trouble with the iCUE software, unlike other users. My lone "issue" is that this keyboard is a bit smaller than my previous one--a Logitech G510--so I'm still getting used to the positioning. The included textured WASD keys are a nice touch, however. Overall, I like this keyboard a lot and can see it getting a lot of use in the coming years.

    I previously had a Logitech Orion G610 keyboard, but my wife was complaining that it was way too loud. That keyboard uses the cherry mx red switches which can be very clicky. I really liked the board for gaming. After some research I decided to try out this board with the cherry mx silent switches. I must say, the sound difference is amazing. I, and my wife, are very happy with the switch. I am also happy that this ties in to my computer build as I have a lot of other corsair products. The RGB syncs perfectly using the iCUE software.

    Following advice as frequently seen in gaming blogs, I decided to add a gaming keyboard to my new PC rig. Choice of a board is not easy to make when the only opportunity to "try" it is in the store-if it is there. Other than that, one has to trust the various blogs and tech sites that are out there. Most of what I read recommended a quality level board as a means of improving game play. The Corsair products seem to lead the pack and offer various factors ( Cherry MX, etc.) that could appeal to a user. I read about the switches and the reasons they are advised. One factor that guided my choice was quiet switching. I prefer the keying to relatively "not clicky"- if possible. First, I got the Speed Switch version as recommended by the salesman and as it was on sale. The switching was not to my preference. I returned it. Did more reading and decided on the Silent Switch design. I also got some silencing gaskets that can be added to keys on any board to decrease the keying sounds. The board was pretty quiet on its own and the gaskets were not that necessary. The board is smooth, nicely responsive and comfortable for my rather large hands. If you can swing one into your budget you likely won't regret getting it. It will last for years and be a faithful friend when it is only you against the machine. Cheers.
