Categories > Gaming Keyboards > Corsair > Corsair Gaming STRAFE MX Silent Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit Red LED, Cherry MX Silent

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5
Pros: - Wide-range LED customization: Per-key programmable, 100% ghosting, All cherry MX switches

- Good starter mechanical keyboard for anyone.

- It came in original box with key puller and couple of extra (gaming replacements) keys. No wrist rest like in K70, but next version, Strafe RGB does have wrist rest. So be aware of that if wrist rest is a must for you. (A little research goes a long way)

- The red backlit keys are really nice in person and the pictures definitely do not do them justice. You can choose from six different lighting presets or make your own. Tapping the keys on this thing can get loud if there are people sleeping nearby, but it's not a deal breaker for me. Comes with CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) for customizable options with macros. Media buttons are a nice touch as well.
Cons: - All rgb functions of k70,k95,and strafe are the same, there is nothing new there. If you liked the media buttons, get the k70, if you want extra macros, k95, if you didn't use either of them, get the strafe. The k70 and k95 do not have a usb passthrough, but you do not need to plug in both usb's with 3.0, though if you're running 2.0 it doesn't matter. So really, the only thing about the strafe that's "new" is the white background and the usb. Oh, and for the people who were quite critical of the new designed logo, the old one's back.

- Corsair management software is not very intuitive at first. It could use some polishing for sure :/
Other Thoughts: - Note that the keyboard has a hidden bios mode for people wishing to tweak the system bios at boot time. You can activate said mode by holding down the F1 as well as the Windows lock button at the top right corner of the keyboard for about three seconds. The indicator for scroll lock will flash continuously once it is in bios mode. Similarly, you can turn the mode off by holding down the same buttons for three seconds.

- Quick and dirty CUE tutorial:

1. Abandon trying to figure out how to program the app

2. Navigate to the Corsair gaming site to download profiles (search for "corsair rgb share", then scroll down to the STRAFE section)

3. Download the coolest looking profile (I highly recommend "Everyday amazing color & animation" by Timothy Cook (picture attached))

4. Open up the Corsair CUE software, navigate to the Profiles tab (default)

5. Click "Import/Export Profiles", then click "import"

6. Navigate to the folder containing the profile you downloaded, and import it

7. MOST IMPORTANT STEP: Choose the profile you want in the large dropdown menu, then click on the three horizontal lines button directly next to that dropdown menu, and check "set as default profile". Not doing this will cause the keyboard lighting to revert to the default profile when the cue software is no longer focused.

IF YOU WANT YOUR KEYBOARD TO VISUALIZE MUSIC:

- Download the "Corsair Effects Engine" (easily googlable) off of the Corsair forums and run that WITHOUT the CUE software running.

- Tutorial for the CEE should be on the same site as the download

Categories > Gaming Keyboards > Corsair > Corsair Gaming K70 LUX RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Cherry MX Brown (CH-9101012-NA)

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Worst Product Experience.
Pros: -Wrist rest better than OG K70 RGB
-Good lighting
-A mechanical keyboard
Cons: -Keyboard makes NOISE!? (The batch that newegg has right now they make a high pitched noise. First and replacement one made noise. If you are looking at this keyboard just wait few months or more until they fix the problem.)
- Worst Customer Support from Corsair (They expected me to pay for the rma shipping for using low cost parts (that is why it makes noise). The ordeal took a week to get a prepaid shipping label
Other Thoughts: Update Flying Cows!!! I have to wait for corsair rma for a month and one week because they are out of stock. Now this is the worst purchase ever.

Update 2: It seems that the email was automated because surprise they have the keyboard in stock. Had to complain over the phone.

Categories > Gaming Keyboards > Cooler Master > CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo (Green LED Model)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great price, annoying habits
Pros: Great price, green LEDs provide soft, non-blinding light in a dark room, USB, dual combo, and two additional settings for faster DPI.
Cons: - The etching process they use to place the keyboard markers could be made better, but then again it is from mass assembly. Certain keys are not completely clear and as a result are not visible at certain angles by the LEDs.
- After extended use the mouse wheel has had intermittent difficulties registering that I am using it as Middle Mouse 3. I either have to try multiple times or press firmly to open up a new browser tab for example.
Other Thoughts: After my stock mouse and keyboard from iBuyPower finally started to keel over this was a great buy. The cons I have had are merely cosmetic and convenience based and do not bring down the value you get for a matching keyboard and mouse set.

Categories > Gaming Keyboards > Corsair > Corsair Gaming K70 LUX Mechanical Keyboard Backlit Red LED Cherry MX Red (CH-9101020-NA)

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Great gaming keyboard
Pros: I originally had the model from last year for this keyboard, so I was pretty familiar with the layout of the keys and options of this one. Out of the box, you get the keyboard, some custom key caps to help you with gaming, a key cap pulling device, instruction/warranty book and a wrist-rest bar. The metal construction of the keyboard itself is really sturdy to handle all of your gaming rages. The free software to customize the keyboard and keep the firmware up to date is really neat and easy to use. The red LED’s make the keys really easy to read in the dark. The clicks of the Cherry MX switches on my keyboard really make you feel each click for accuracy when playing those keyboard intensive games. The USB cable is braided to keep from any tearing that you might have faced with other keyboards. The keyboard does have “feet” to raise it in the back a bit. The real selling point for me to this keyboard was the volume rocker as it is easy to adjust your volume to the computer you have this hooked up to and the customizability of the keys for your games.
Cons: The wrist-rest, unfortunately like its predecessor, is wearable and starts to peel over time depending on what you use the keyboard for. I usually use mine for mostly gaming and working so it gets used for a couple hours each day, thus the wrist-rest is starting the peel. The LED’s are not adjustable to a different color, but you should know that when you read the description. Red is the only color you will be seeing. They extra keycaps, while nice, are not really too comfortable for me as they have a bit of a ridged surface.
Other Thoughts: Compared to last year’s model, not much has changed. It is a great keyboard for those night-time gamers. I just wish they would make the wrist-rest with a different material as it does peel and wear pretty early on in its use, but not much of a game changer for most. Is it good for work? It really depends as the Cherry Red MX switches are a bit loud and might bother others around you, but for me, I really enjoy using it for work, but the main use for this keyboard is gaming.

Categories > Gaming Keyboards > RAZER > Razer BlackWidow X Tournament Edition Chroma - RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Military Grade Metal Construction and Compact Layout

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Awesome product
Pros: - Keyboard is solid and the quality is very good
- Keys are great, and RGB lighting is very vivid
- Packaging is very attractive, like most Razer products
- 2 stickers included (I LOVE FREE STICKERS)
Cons: - Poor to non-existant instructions - basically they tell you how to plug in a USB cable and what a FN key is
- Software is decent, but leaves a bit to be desired for new users
- Pricey (but most Razer products are over priced)
- First time using the Synapse software was infuriating as profiles would not save (I did figure it out, but instructions would have shaved off a bunch of time)
Other Thoughts: - YouTube is your best friend for any tutorials you need to setup, install, and use features as the included booklet is useless
- I bought this keyboard as a gift so - it is neither a pro or con - but this model doesn't have a calculator portion, so for me it would be useless, but the person I bought it for doesn't use the calculator portion so saving 4+ inches of space was a positive for her
-I'd definitely recommend this product though, the quality and vivid colors are very appealing and the mechanical keys feel awesome

-The shipper 'Compra' got this thing to my door in 48 hours, so any reviews saying negative things in regards to shipping - I completely disagree with - as I think 48 hours is more than reasonable!

-I gave 4/5 eggs only because it takes a truly exceptional product and experience to get 5/5 in my eyes and 4/5 is high praise for this experience overall!
