    A $15 standard keyboard is better than this junk

    Corsair added unnecessary weight to this keyboard to make it feel "expensive", but don't be fooled. The construction is cheap. Buttons are oddly spaced. Not ergonomic at all. They also pop off very easily. RGB lighting is very dim even if turned all the way up. I had this keyboard for two hours and I already hate it. Will return it tomorrow.

    This is a Gaming Keyboard and I'm not into gaming but I decided to buy this keyboard because if it's built for gaming it's built to last. This keyboard is very smooth and responsive I really enjoy typing specially because is not noisy. The RGB backlighting is awesome you can choose any color you like and toggle between different modes. This keyboard is solid and has a nice weight to it to keep it from sliding, definitely recommended.

    Responsive Keyboard

    Great response time in Simulation games. Highly customizable, easy to set up Hot Keys and backlight colors. Keyboard is comfortable to use for extended periods of time. Positive key strikes eliminate guessing if you've hit it. Being a "Mechanical" keyboard it is loud but easy to get used to. Would prefer smooth Space Bar, don't need different texture from other keys. Razer software seems buggy but updates are consistently improving functionality.

    This is my first mechanical keyboard, so I was sceptical about going any higher in price for my first one... I tried all the displays at the store and pulled the trigger on this one.. So far this thing is outstanding compared to old keyboards of the past... Its built like a brick house.. Heavy too!!!.. Great look, great feel, and I can't wait to use it more on my daily PC gaming adventures!

    I've been using cheap membrane keyboards for probably all my life. I saw this being spillproof and it caught my atteention. While I won't test it out, I saw reviews and it did hold to its marketting so I went for it. Overall it feels great and it feels just in the right spot and it's not as loud as other keyboards thanks to the membrane covering the switches. Also, got it for 99 so thought it was a great deal

    I purchased this item on Black Friday and it has truly been the charm. You are receiving around 10 different lightings for your keyboard and it feels pretty nice. Luckily for me, the item was already 30% off and I had a reward certificate making this item only 10 dollars. I would recommend this to anyone who would like a keyboard that is worth its price.

    I have owend many keyboards in my day, and none compare to this. Fast responding, the configurable lighting is awesome, and it has changed the way I game all around. My only one complaint is the spongy spacebar, but to be honest, it doesn't make or break this board. Very heavy duty and could withstand any bit of abuse. I will be purchasing more corsair products in the future!

    I purchased this mechanical keyboard for gaming and typing and am very happy with it. I tried a few different brands in the store and liked Corsair the best. The model on display was the more expensive K70, but the K68 has the same key design, and typing on it feels the same to me. The RGB lighting effects are fully customizable and look great.

    This is a pretty good mechanical keyboard, there are only two things to consider that I would consider downsides: there is no USB passthrough (which isn’t unusual, but having a USB port on your keyboard is always nice) and the keycaps aren’t a standard size, so you can’t easily replace them. There’s nothing wrong with the ones that come on the keyboard, though, so it’s not a big deal.

    Just a quick review. I had keyboard from 2009, Logitech MW3 keyboard, and upgraded to this one. Just so much different. This keyboard is heavy compare to the old one. Great color and different effects from the software. Now i don't have to hold FN to change the volume and track.

    It not only looks great but the response is just buttery. Having volume and playback control is a bonus when going from music playing in the background to taking a business call. Custom lighting controls are more useful than expected especially when working in a dimly lit room. The brightness control helps it not be too distracting.

    Worst keyboard I have ever owned. The plastic insert on the removable palm rest snapped on the first day, when attaching to keyboard. Returning to retailer immediately for a full refund. What a horrible company. Avoid this junk and spend your money elsewhere.

      Hi Baz,

      Seems like you had bad luck with the product and it is not indicative of the high quality we're known for.

      If you still have it or would like to ask us any other questions please reach out: support.corsair.com CorsairGaming

    Grandchild uses my computer, so needed something spill resistant. This keyboard has survived everything he spilled on it. Illimination is nice for late night work. Only down side is the keys are tapered, so it leaves a fair sized gap between the keys. If you slide your fingers across the keyboard your fingers catch on the keys.

    For the price point, it's a great keyboard. Not a fan of the MX Red switches, as I type heavy with my fingers. I know that reds are designed for gaming so no stars off for that. RGB Lights are great, and become stellar when paired with Corsair's ICUE for advanced lighting control.

    Bought this keyboard a while ago and the only problem I ever had with it was caused by a spill. Otherwise super durable. Lights are great and the software offers a lot of settings and options as far as RGB configurations go. Build's good too with the metal backing.

    I absolutely love Corsairs products and this keyboard doesn’t fail to meet their standards. Perfect mechanical feel, plus with the spill and dust proof portion of it I don’t need to worry about it getting gunked up after heavy use.

    The K68 feels nice, Corsair iCUE could be better and more user friendly. Also the space bar could be better, the lighting isn’t great on it and the texturing throws the feel off a little

    I got this keyboard to go alone with the other Corsair products my husband has so he can link all the lighting effects together. It works well. Its an awesome keyboard. The effects are cool. I recommend it.

    I went from a Razer Widow Tournament to this keyboard and I love it. The keys feel great when typing and especially for gaming. They also make way less noise than my Razer (given that these are Cherry MX keys). I would highly recommend this to any gamer.

    I owned a Logitech g910 prior to this keyboard. The Corsair is far superior in build quality, lighting configurations, and consistency. This looks like pro gear instead of a high end toy as well. 5* easy.
