    I bought this keyboard for work and one for home for typing and the keys are SO nice for typing - not too loud for the office either.

    I purchased this mechanical keyboard for my office, but I didn't want to annoy anyone outside my door while typing up a long email or report. I normally type about 100 WPM on a blue cherry Daskeyboard at home which is heaven for me with the spring action and satisfying "click" sound. The K68 in comparison is much quieter and VERY sensitive to input so you don't need to "bottom out" the keys for a command to be registered. I higly recommend it for those that need a quiet board with a quality feel!

    Once you get your hands on a premium keyboard with cherry mx keys, you will never want to go back. It is comfortable and easy to type on.

    tried the first mechanical keyboard, it takes some time to get used to but oh boys I'll never go back. The feel is great, typing is accurate and I can spray n clean it pretty easily without worrying too much. definitely recommended.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The red switches are very responsive and are smooth. They are very responsive and make typing easy, and finger fatigue is not a problem. I have gamed for 5 or more hours on this board and I'm typing the review on this board right now. Build quality is a plus, very solid, and is plastic. No flexing so far. The RGB lights are very nice as well. You can turn them off using the button next to the Win-Key lock. The water proofing is a plus, rubber around the keys. The rubber could be removed with a pocket knife, but will void your warranty. They act like o-rings, so it makes your typing experience quiet. The multimedia keys work, I would have preferred the nob instead of volume buttons like on the K70. The cable as well is not braided, and there is no pass through port. If you type for longer periods of time, I would recommend using browns or blues. If you are mostly gaming, use these switches or speed/silents. I also wish the build was metal instead of plastic for it's price. Over all, this keyboard is amazing for gaming, and typing. Thank you for reading this review.

    I may not be proficient in a gaming keyboard, as this is my first, however, having transcribed 8 hours a day for many years, I know a good solid keyboard when I use one and this is definitely that. It is heavy duty and stays where you put it without it moving around on you. It is very comfortable for typing all day without stress on your fingers or wrists. I particularly like that it has protection under the keys for spills, food debris, etc. This would have been a life saver for me with all the other keyboards I have gone through. I like that is has a Caps Lock light to let you know when you are using your Caps and this doesn't come on all keyboards. This comes in very handy when you are typing in passwords. I don't know how many times I have typed in passwords and it took me a while to figure out that I couldn't get in because I had the Caps Lock key on and didn't know it. As far as the gaming aspect, I can't wait to start programming the keys with the Cue that you can download from the Corsair site. This will come in handy for more things than just gaming, if I get creative. I highly recommend this keyboard. The keys respond very quickly to your touch and I just love the background lighting on it that has different moving light patterns already set up or you can get creative and customize your own patterns.

    I'd never used a "gaming" keyboard before and scoffed at them as an un-needed expense. I was wrong. This keyboard brings "gaming" and general use to a new level! I initially took it into work to see if the "noise" of a mechanical keyboard would be an issue. The "cherry" keys are quiet enough for work, yet tactile enough to make a huge difference in typing speed and quality! Then I took it home and it was fantastic for all the games I played especially when paired with the accompanying programable software!

    I bought this after I returned the Alienware RGB keyboard due to it not being compatible with Windows 7. I got to type a little on the Alienware keyboard and it felt okay but the Corsair k-68 feels way better. I love the clicky sound it makes and a tactile feel when I am typing. I highly recommend this keyboard to anyone looking to upgrade. The RGB lighting is definitely a sweet, sweet bonus! I downloaded some custom profiles for my keyboard and I am well pleased.

    I'm coming from a 20$ amazon gaming keyboard that I've had for about 2yrs now. When I got this keyboard I was excited to use it but to my surprise I ended up not liking this keyboard so much. I don't understand why people like the loud clicking noise it makes when ever u press a key? My old 20$ keyboard had super quiet key caps and was very comfortable to use, unlike this Corsair keyboard. I did like the RGB but I find it useless since it doesn't give me any performance boost in gaming. I also use this for my school work which sucked since like I said the key caps are so loud and annoying when typing. Pro: RGB Heavy built Long cable Cons: Loud when typing Slides around on my desk

    This keyboard is so cool with all the different lighting settings available. Not sure why it's called a gaming keyboard though. It's setup just as any other keyboard. I'm coming from a Merc Stealth and that was a gaming keyboard - separate keys off to the side. Anyway, this really is a nice keyboard. It's mechanical, very heavy and just feels great while typing. I've never been a fan of wrist rests but this one really benefits from the included one. Although mine is a little warped but will hopefully flatten out after time. All in all, this is a very nice keyboard and looks great with the lights.
