    I traded in my laptop for a desktop that was much faster without it costing me a lot of money. So I had to buy a new keyboard. This was the perfect size for my desk and the backlighting is amazing. I can sit at my desk in very low light and still see the keyboard.

    Purchased as aearly birthday present for my wife, who has been longing for the old IBM AT style keyboards. She loves the tactile feedback and the lighting, and is enjoying her gaming sessions much more than with her old membrane keyboard.

    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.

    purchased to replace an old mechanical keyboard. This is great. Keys are very responsive and I love the light up / dimming options.

    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.

    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.

    I was a little overwhelmed looking at Keyboards, specifically Corsairs lineup, but after some very long thought I decided to go with this one for a few reasons. 1, I didn't want to spend too much. @@@@@@@@ Got this one on sale for $80). 2, as much as I love RGB lighting, I knew I was going to set it to red anyways. 3, I am okay with the lack of USB pass through, the non metal wheel volume adjuster, the "lesser" of the wrist rests, and the non aluminum frame. @@@@@@@@ The K70 offers the above) This keyboard has a VERY sturdy feel to it and has been great for me and my typing/gaming needs. Highly recommended!

    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.
