    Smooth and quiet

    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.

    Picked this keyboard up on Black Friday and so far I've been extremely satisfied. Coming from an older K40, as the summary says, it has been a great upgrade. The keys have a nice mechanical feel and the switches have the audible click but it isn't overly noisy compared to other cherry switches. The keyboard is constructed very well and feels very sturdy, if you prefer a heavier keyboard this one will not disappoint. So far this keyboard has been well worth the money, I would feel the same even if I had purchased at full price.

    After reviewing several models of corsair keyboards I chose the Strafe rgb mk 2. Due to the pink silent cherry microswitches. I tested several models in store with the silver speed switch, blue clicky and brown tactile microswitches. The silent one is the most comfortable for me and they are pretty quiet. The RGB lighting is programmable through the corsair's icue software which you need to download. The cool thing about icue is if you have other corsair products you can also program through icue like a mouse/headphones. Comes with a palm rest and fps/moba keycap sets which are a nice addition.

    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.
