    Impressed with Multifunctionality

    I have to be honest. I actually bought this for my iPad Pro 10.5 because I am fed up with the small keyboards and the iPad is at the point where it can surprisingly replace my laptop (outside of hardcore Photoshop or hardcore gaming - but that's what my gaming desktop is for ha). Pros: -Versatile, works well with the iPad Pro. I am genuinely impressed with the key registration on each key press. Worked with impressive key registration on my gaming PC as well; no input lag so far -Lights up with various levels -Works with the hard keyboard case that Razer sells for $29.99 (only thing is you have to push down on one of the plastic corners). Surprisingly also fits the iPad Pro 10.5 with this keyboard in that case as long as you use a slim ipad cover like the smartcover, in addition to chargers and plug (although I would recommend it in a cushion case so it doesn't slide all over the place). -Can use it bluetooth connection OR the wireless dongle connection. -As expected, key press is solid. Would expect nothing less from Corsair when it comes to keyboards. Cons: -Wish the battery life could be longer, but hey, it would probably be heavier if it were. -Lights up but only 1 color (bluish color) -Keys don't seem to come off like the mechanical keyboards that Corsair normally sells. Just an FYI outside of topic, if you are a gamer looking to change up your gear, I would recommend the following: -Astro a50s for headset (Awesome sound and can use for consoles easily as well as PC, very versatile) -Logitech G502 or Logitech G903 for gaming mouse (Logitech wins in gaming mice easily) -Logitech Rechargeable Mousepad if you use Logitech G903, otherwise Razer and Corsair both have great RGB mousepads as well. -Corsair K70 Rapidfire keyboard (Corsair wins in keyboards easily)

    Awesome wireless mechanical from Corsair

    So far, i'm loving this keyboard. I'm coming from the Romer-G switches that Logitech uses and agree with the consensus; Romer-G switches feel squishy compared to the Cherry-MX switches. I have both the 810 Orion and the G613 Wireless Mechanical keyboard; while I still use the G613 for word processing as well as general tasks, this K63 has replaced it for gaming and "couch browsing". In CSGO, I haven't had any problems whatsoever and find the switches to feel much smoother. One of the things that always bothered me about the Logitech Romer-G's is the shift button on both my wired and wireless keyboard were extra squishy and somewhat stiff. This keyboard has no problem with that. It has blue LED's which is fine. I would've preferred a white or red personally but it's better than nothing, unlike my G613, The rechargeable keyboard has a micro-usb port in the back for charging. The charge lasts a good amount so far as long as I plug it in before going to sleep. Haven't had it long enough to give specifics on how it holds up in constant gaming. Weight is a little heavier to be honest but I like the fact that I can remove the wrist rest. Again, my G613 has a huge wrist rest that is not removable. Only gripe is with the software; If I restart the computer, I have to reconnect the dongle but it's not too big a deal.

    Very Good Upgrade

    I have had the wireless K63 wireless for about two weeks now. I have my gaming pc hooked up to my big tv in the living room. I normally play with a xbox one elite controller or steam controller but you cant use a controller on all games. I upgraded from a logitech wireless key board, the K63 is built much better and was only about $45 more then my old key board, I have had no problems with wireless and the key board is very responsive. Just make sure you download the Corsair software and you have to update the software and update the keyboard with it plugged in by usb. There is a few small things I don't really like one is the battery, the life is alittle short and you can not change or upgrade the battery you can make it last longer by turning down the brightness in the software I am running my lights at 25% and I have then turned the switch down to the lowest setting. I don't care to much for the blue plastic under the keys I would have liked it black. I also wish the would have made it so you could change the color of the lights it only has blue lights. I do recommend it for couch play. I also got the lap board and that makes it much better for playing from the couch the key board fits perfect and it has a large mouse pad.

    Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Goodness

    I own a quite a few mechanical keyboards - DasKeyboard, IBM Model M, Logitech G613, Corsair K70 Lux and a couple of others I can't recall right now. Of these, the K70 is my favorite with the Cherry MX Red. This keyboard is the K70 without wires! Feels like the K70 so that's a good thing. There are those who will complain about the short battery life but that's not been my experience. Does it last months as some are expecting? No, but it's easy enough to recharge. I can go at least a couple of weeks on moderate use (a couple of hours a day). I'm not a heavy gamer so I cannot speak to marathon gaming sessions and the endurance of the battery. A few gripes though that take a star away from the rating: 1. The keyboard does go to sleep and it take a few seconds for it to wake. I think the sleep time is adjustable. 2. Not sure if the built-in battery can be replaced once the battery starts to wear out. 3. The key cap fonts are a bit odd and will take some time to get used to

    Awesome Keyboard When It Decides To Work

    This is by far the best mechanical, wireless keyboard. I've had the Logitech and that one is far too heavy and has the squishy Romer-G switches. This keyboard was meant solely to be my all in one to replace my desktop keyboard for gaming and my logitech for couch browsing. It does both really well when it works. So far, I've had it for more than a year and I keep getting disconnects. I'll switch it off and on and it will not register keys but will still show lights. I also updated the firmware, via hardwire like recommended, and it failed and showed corruption. I did not touch my keyboard during the update but I can only assume Corsair screwed something up. Overall, I'd still buy this keyboard again but only at sub $60. The connection issues are too infuriating when I have to either reconnect the dongle or micro-usb directly to the keyboard. The whole point is for it to be wireless and it fails.

    This is the best keyboard I've ever purchased. I bought it for my gamer husband even though he already had a Corsair gaming keyboard. This has the same mechanical key function and each key is spring loaded for the best possible timing while playing. This keyboard is great simply because it is wireless. It does not have the number pad on the side, but we find that it is so much more user friendly this way for gaming. We also purchased a wireless mouse as well and it makes gaming so much better. We needed to alleviate cords because we have kids and cats and the wireless keyboard is the perfect solution. It also can be programmed to do interesting back lighting in color with waves or scattered and is a nice effect. Our current setup is blue backlights that scatter across the keyboard. The sensitivity of this keyboard is fantastic and the best we have ever purchased by far.

    My keyboard tray under my desk is too small to fit a normal sized keyboard and a mouse pad, so once I found this, I knew i had to have it. Although it isnt the best for typing as there is no feedback or "click" when you press the keys (you should get Cherry MX Blue keys if you want that click), I learned to love the Cherry MX Red's after about a week and now I cant use anything else. As always, Corsair has produced a high quality product at a good price, This is actually the only compact, wireless, and mechanical keyboard from a reputable company on the market as far as i know.

    Great Keyboard (Mostly)

    I really wanted a wireless gaming keyboard and since this literally just dropped during CES this year, decided this was the one after reading a few reviews. I've been mostly happy with it, except the battery life is NOT great and the USB cord it comes with is way to rigid. Logitech has a bettery design for the wireless mouse cord with a very flexible braided micro-usb and a prong design on either side of the USB to keep it steady inside the mouse when plugged in. I much prefer this. I did buy a cord I prefer better, but for this price point, Corsair should get all aspects of the keyboard perfectly. (Also one of the keyboard LEDs went out already. Guess I am gonna have to warranty this thing) With that said. This keyboard is probably the best wireless mechanical keyboard on the market.

    Great Gaming Keyboard in Wireless form

    I have to say I really like this keyboard and how it feels. The keys are very nice and feel good to the touch and press. I like the Blue LED's although I don't understand why they just didn't go that extra little step and go full RGB. The downsides are for me is that it is Tenkey Less (I miss my tenkey's!). The battery life is fairly short (I get about 2-3 days of usage with turning it off in between uses). Not sure why the battery doesn't last longer. It's Micro USB instead of USB C (Come on! It's 2018!) Wish it had a user replaceable battery. I would almost rather use my Eneloop rechargeable's in this thing even if it meant changing them out daily.

    This keyboard, even though all plastic is quality! and has some heft which surprised me in a good way!, the keys feel great and solid, the wireless, 2.4ghz with dongle or Bluetooth was what I expected from a keyboard this price. I use the dongle as it's no lag and pairs easily with never any dropouts. The battery has been decent so far with backlight turned off. the backlight can get real bright and is adjustable, only thing would have been nice is RGB. Overall, I like the quality of the keyboard, a bit on the expensive side but sometimes you gotta pay to play with nice things!

    I have the k95 and love it however I am getting into DJing and at time need to move my keyboard so I can put the DJ controller on the desk during the times I want to practice. Instead of unplugging and plugging they keyboard, I went looking for a nice wireless keyboard. The K63 is a nice keyboard, I miss the RGB however it's not a deal breaker as I mainly use blue lights anyways. I do miss the number keys to the right of the keyboard for quick tasks. The quality is there but not K95 quality...

    Really wanted to give a gaming keyboard a chance and this one did not fail. I've had 0 issues with Latency/Response time. The size is perfect if your someone who wants a smaller keyboard that's wireless. Also comes with a long Micro USB cable for charging . After one week with the keyboard It's only needed one charge. I've played about 3-5 hours a day on it for the past week. Defiantly recommend giving this wireless keyboard a try.

    Avoid this keyboard... and Corsair

    This was a pretty good keyboard up until a Corsair driver issue screwed everything up. Using the 2.4ghz dongle causes any controller (wireless, wired, PS4, XBONE, Steam, Or Switch) to intermittently disconnect. Corsair won’t admit that there is an issue and the customer service has been abysmal. If you care about controller based gaming or decent customer service stay far away from Corsair.

    Gave this a 4 star only because I had an issue 2 weeks in where the keyboard stopped working, even when wired. After some online research, I found that you need to reset it by doing the following: Hold the ESC key while turning the keyboard on, then release the ESC key after two seconds. This worked for me and it working perfectly. Wish it was RGB instead of solid blue for the price but can't complain.

    This is my first gaming keyboard and Its great. I usually play Starcraft 2 so in this regard is feeling great and I cant notice any lag. The only thing is that Starcraft 2 cant be launched sometimes because of iCUE keyboard software so i usually close it. When I transmit the broadcast to my TV I have a great experience. I also bought this one because If I travel this would be a relative PRO gaming keyboard.

    I was going to give this 4 stars because the keyboard doesn't do RGB but I gave it 5 because the build quality is still very good and the keys are very easy to clean and the clicks are very satisfying and not too aggressive, very good for gaming, the only con this keyboard has is the charging port is a tad bit fragile, so be delicate with the charging port if you have to charge it.

    This is my current keyboard on my set up. Great performance. The blue lighting is a nice touch. Battery lasts about a week if left on with the lighting. Avoid software updates. Corsairs software is always buggy. mines lost the backlighting when I was trying to attempt the software update. Ended up exchanging it for a new one at the store and so far no issues.

    I got this together with the lap board so I could do some pc gaming from the couch while I recover from an operation. Great range and battery life so far. No complaints which is what I expected from Corsair. Well built and feels solid. The hey commands are instant and it works great for gaming.

    I am a gamer and recording guy and I just love the feeling of the keys. I also like its lay out and how easy it was to service. I spilt some water on it and it turned out it wasnt super difficult to fix. simply took off the keys one by one. wiped it down and let it dry out, was perfectly fine after a couple of days.

    This is the first wireless keyboard I've owned and I love it. I'm used to a full sized keyboard so it took me a while to get used to not having the number pad. I haven't lost signal or experienced any other issues so far. The keys feel great. The backlight is a bonus and I love the blue lighting.
