    I love the responsiveness of my keyboard. Don't care about the color but it is backlit well. The only thing some people may not like is the clacking noise of the keys. I used to have a type writer, I love hearing my key strokes.

    I had been using wireless keyboards for a few years, but they ended up being too fragile. So I decided to go back to something wired. I wanted something with backlit keys because I often work in low-light conditions. This keyboard doesn't have a lot of options (it comes in any color you like as long as you like red), but it gets the job done for me and it feels very sturdy. I expect it to last a long time. The keys are a little noisy, but I guess that kind of comes with the territory. All-in-all, I believe this to be a good value for a reasonable price.

    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.
