    Overall, the keyboard has a solid build, the added arm rest is only a bonus. The keys are nice to press, and the red LEDs are more than enough for most builds that don't include rgb.

    Great feel to the keys and the backlit letters will not lead to rapid erasure of common key letters. Very satisfied as I used as a replacement for the basic keyboard supplied with my gaming computer

    Works well with the gaming setup my son has. Allows for some customization of keys, and color layout.

    This is a solid 84 key mechanical keyboard and you get more clickity clack, the feedback is excellent and I enjoy typing on this keyboard. It would not look out of place on the desk.

    Keyboard with Lights

    It is a keyboard with bright red keys that allow you to to work on your computer in a room no matter what the ambient lighting. Normally, if you want to see the keyboard it is necessary to turn on lights bright enough to illuminate the room. With these, youcan see the keys no matter what the surrounding conditions. It is a comfortable keyboard with keys that have adequate space between them.

    Pros: Mechanical, Cherry MX keys Cons: Has only Red light with 3 levels. Not recommended for productivity. Unfortunately my key "I" failed to work. It worked intermittently. Had to return and get another KB.

    This keyboard is amazing. I purchased it as a replacement for a crappy laptop keyboard and for a gaming pc I will be buying in the future. I tested it out on my Xbox and I absolutely love the linear feel of the red switches. The backlighting is beautiful and the keys are extremely sensitive for quick movements. For beginners, the high actuation point may be a bit troublesome, but you will get used to it.

    Just a great, sturdy, quality KB by Corsair. If you don't need RGB this is the model to go for. The cherry red went with the theme of my rig, but otherwise I'd go for the RGB variant. Keys aren't very clicky, but I personally appreciate the quieter design. It's weight is indicative of a solid build. Like all my other Corsair peripherals and components, I recommend highly. I use anything Corsair with total confidence

    Going the way of the Dodo...?

    @@@@@ PLUG-N-Play works fine; No need for CPU & RAM usage dragging down an older PC. I really like this keyboard! This is the first mechanical keyboard that I've ever owned. Initially, I was leaning towards the K70 LUX RGB; however, the lack of those online for sale, even on CORSAIR's own web site may indicate that the K70 LUX RGB model may be dropped by CORSAIR (Well, that's like... just my opinion, man). A few of the keys have a lower 'clunk' sound, like the Space Bar key, the Back Space key & 0 key on the keypad, but I can live with that. The most amazing feature, IMO, is the back-lighting of the keys. I also purchased the M65 RGB ELITE Mouse - also lighted, a scaled down version of the M65 Vengeance. Now I don't have to turn on any lights to work or game at night. OUTSTANDING! I run both the mouse and the K68 as Plug & Play; which doesn't bog down my 7 year old PC with over weighted software running in the background. Unlike the OEM membrane keyboard that came with my PC, the K68 has raised above the deck keys. NICE! The keys are also more sensitive and I find that my larger fingers brush a neighboring key from time to time. IMO, you can't go wrong buying one of these. Best Buy has a great delivery service and I am quite impressed with their speed and the care that they take in packaging items for shipping. With the price of this keyboard fluctuating as much as it has within the time of purchase and this review / 18,Jan - 29-Jan / = from $89.99 - $69.99 and in between, it may well be going the way of the Dodo.

    Solid Performance Keyboard

    Keyboard is great. Background color is red only. The keys are very responsive. Does not give you the full clicky sound that most people enjoy so it is not as loud. Yet you still get the mechanical key feel. I've noticed a couple times it feels like my key was not recognized but it is rare. Recommended for the casual gamer who wants an edge.

    Best keyboard I've ever owned

    I'm assuming that unlike most people looking at this keyboard, the main reason I considered this one was not for gaming. I type two to three hours a day and a good keyboard is essential. The K68 fits all my needs. Solidly built, it has some weight to it with little or no flex. The Cherry MX Red key switches are perfect for someone like myself who has arthritis and types with a light touch. Although not stealthy, the keys switches are on the quieter side. It comes with a removable wrist rest, and aesthetically its adjustable red backlighting is pretty darned sexy. I have literally owned more than a dozen keyboards, and this by far is my favorite.
