    Perfect for late night gaming!

    Love this keyboard! Bought one for my boyfriend and myself for Christmas. We are both late night gamers and don't have a separate room to keep our gaming computers. So we sometimes will want to game when the other needs to sleep... needless to say our last set of mechanical gaming keyboards made us both wanna throw things at the other person when trying to sleep. Not anymore. It's not completely silent but the reduced amount loud clicking doesn't keep me up when he's playing and vise versa. Only thing I wish it had was a set of macro G keys on the left like the other none silent models. That would make this keyboard perfect in my opinion. But none the less we both love it. Very responsive and goes great with my corsair gaming mouse and headphones.

    This keyboard is great. It functions well, the individual backlit led keys are individually customizable. The keypress is linear and very quiet, which is a plus when using a mic, because the last thing everyone wants to hear is click click click (ahem RAZER..) Only gripe is that for the price point, it should come with G keys. The rest of the features are great, but dont warrent the price point, especially with the build materials.

    The keyboard itself is fantastic. It uses the Cherry silent switches. While I wouldn't call it quiet, it is not annoyingly loud. For gaming, it is definitely a step-up over my son's previous non-mechanical keyboard. It also works very well for typing - extremely responsive and comfortable. The only downside so far (and the reason for 4 stars) is that Corsair's program for controlling the RGB settings is pretty terrible and non-intuitive.

    Quiet, very colorful but a little too mushy for me

    Quiet, very colorful but a little too mushy for me - this is probably a personal preference as I am coming from Razer greens (very clickly, VERY LOUD). I was looking for something that had the click factor of the razor without the loudness. Unfortunately, this really delivered on the quiet part but I just didn't feel good clacking away on it.

    Excellent Keyboard ... trouble with iCUE software

    The keyboard keys feel great to use but have a little more noise than I expected. Noise is not bad at all. Have not figured out how to individually change the RGB color on each key using the iCUE software! Using all red right now but wanted to have specific game keys in white.

    The colors look great and the keyboard feel nice and smooth. the program to change colors is not very user friendly. It took awhile to figure out how to get the colors to just stay one color.

    I bought this since I lived in a a dorm and needed a quiet keyboard. It is much quieter than my original strafe with mx reds. It doesn't feel as satisfying though, but it will suffice.

    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.

    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.
