5 out of 5 eggsAmazing product, with one notable flaw so far

Pros: - love the light up keys, makes typing and gaming so much easier in the dark. (I game in my living room, and at night my girlfriend likes to watch tv without the lights on. Without a lighted keyboard, gaming was brutal for me, as I would always press the wrong keys, and end up dismounting from my ride a few 100m in the air only to fall to my death. this solved that issue easily)
- the custom lighting is awesome, as I have it preprogrammed to work for different games to light up the keys required for each game, making switching so much easier, as I can see the LED's in my peripherals so getting my hands on the right keys is simple.
- Love the way typing feels (reminds me of a typewritter with the high elevated keys and the distance the buttons can be pushed.)
- Keyboard works flawlessly for gaming. No issues using macros or custom setting keyboard colours

Cons: - the only notable flaw that I have noticed is somewhat a connection issue. Last week we had a huge winter storm that put our power out for multiple days. When the power returned my keyboard did not function properly. The first issue was the LED colouring, it was completely different from what I set, and it constantly would flicker. The biggest issue was typing. The keyboard did not react correctly, and it would have massive lag spikes where it would take forever to show the text I wrote, and most of the time it was just a lot of 1 character, and no actual sentences. I looked around for awhile and could not find anything online to help with the issue. The issue was resolved by deleting the firmware I currently had for my k70 keyboard, and reinstalling it. My settings were all lost, but the keyboard works fine now. Aside from this, I have no complaints about the keyboard.
- Another con I could mention would be the USB plugs. I wish it simply had 1 usb plug, as opposed to 2. But I can see why the two make sense. Would just be nice to only have 1.

Other Thoughts: - Highly recommend this product

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing keyboard!

Pros: I have not found an issue with this keyboard at all. The lights are great. The feel of the keys is just what I was hoping for with a mechanical keyboard. Very user friendly.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: This was my first mechanical keyboard. I have been extremely happy with it. Great quality, easy to clean. If you have not used a mechanical keyboard before you need to try one!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat feel, rock solid quality.

Pros: -Great feel. It's so nice, trying to type on regular keyboards now feels like garbage.
-Functions. So easy with 3 different light brightness settings. Able to program to setup select key lightup.
-Rock solid quality. Has taken 3 trips through the dishwasher and works amazing! (see description)
-Cherry MX Red switches are quieter than most.

Cons: -Not much, pretty amazing even 1 1/2 years or so of ownership.
-Would really like if you could remove the 2 USB connectors at the keyboard itself. Would be easier to remove keyboard for full desk cleaning. But that's just nitpicking. Small complaint.

Other Thoughts: -I love this keyboard. It's the first Mechanical I have owned. Love it's features.

-The best part about this is it's quality. This keyboard is a tank. I have spilled liquid (3 different times) into it. When that happens, your computer will spaz out. Shut off computer and remove keyboard immediately.

To fix this (all 3 times), I removed all the keys. Disassembled the keyboard down to the main board with the switches soldered on to it. I ran it in the top rack of the dishwasher, on cold water, no soap and no drying heat. Once finished, I rinsed the entire board off with 1 GAL of distilled water (to remove impurities/minerals left from the hard water of the dishwasher). Let dry under a fan for 1-2 days, re-assemble and it works like new! (I don't know if this is a recommended method, but it's just what I did). Wash the keys in the sink, make sure they are dry before you put them back on. Typing on it now to write this review.

-Overall, completely satisfied. I would recommend installing O-ring switch dampeners for a better experience. They are cheap but it takes allot of time to remove every key and apply the O-ring. I currently have 40A-L O- rings, but I am very quickly going to buy the 40A-R and install. They are better for shock reduction and reducing the "clack" of the key hitting the bottom of the keyboard with every keystroke. Again, just nitpicking. Every mechanical keyboard has the "clack" issue. Install the O-rings to solve that.

4 out of 5 eggsDo not update its firmware!

Pros: - Sweet red LED backlight with adjustable intensity and sectional backlit areas for FPS. Who needs RGB!
- Sleek, red contoured keys for FPS players.
- BIOS mode and 4 polling rates for that important key-spamming.
- Has a good weight to it. This thing is built sturdy.

Cons: - Keyboard bricks completely upon updating it with the latest firmware from Corsair's official page. Called their tech support and I was told I had to RMA it since it couldn't be fixed. Then I was informed the keyboard doesn't require a firmware update. Umm, okay? Then why in the world would you have a firmware update file for the keyboard on your website? Why not have an instruction in the package or on your website telling the owner to not update its firmware since it's known to cause an irreversible issue?
- Expensive due to our currency rate. However, price never seems to go down even when our Canadian dollar is strong... What's with that, eh?

Other Thoughts: -Was told by the tech support that their Express RMA would only take a week to get to my place, and that I would have it before I went off on a vacation. Oh how wrong he was and a fool I was to trust his words. I had to go through the extra trouble of changing the delivery date at my own expense so that it wouldn't be shipped back to sender.

Will update once I receive my replacement keyboard. I really hope it's a brand-new, factory-sealed keyboard.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice, solid build with sturdy, braided cable.

Cons: Minor mistakes such as Num, Scroll and Caps lock LEDs being off center from the hole they are in and I found a small bump on my fast forward media key which I don't think is supposed to be there becasue it's really tiny. Not like the tactile bumps found on the F and J jeys. Also, the LEDs under the keys don't fully illuminate the bottom half of keys such as the numpad and special character keys (<,>,?,:,",!,@,# etc).

Other Thoughts: Wished the palm rest was longer since I have large hands

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent keyboard

Pros: Owned this keyboard a few years now. I mostly use it for day to day stuff, writing, online, a little gaming. Basically everything. I still really like the action on this keyboard and it's held up very well to abuse. Can't say I used the lighting at all. Just no point really unless you're trying to impress yourself or maybe if you're gaming in the dark (who does that, hurts your eyes). I love how the cord on this keyboard is really long. Allowed me to stretch way over to my machine which is about 6-7 feet away.

10/10 would buy again.

Cons: No cons really.

Other Thoughts: Since some of the keys are removable it would be cool if all keys were removable for cleaning.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome keyboard!

Pros: I have had the keyboard for over a year now and use it daily, at least a couple hours a day. I mostly play a mmo and it has performed perfectly.

Except for grime and dirt, the keyboard looks the same as when I got it. The lettering/numbering don't wear off since they're not painted onto the aluminum keys.

I rarely use the backlight feature, but having three levels of brightness is really convenient for me since I feel like most backlights are too bright for me.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great feel, durability, very easy to clean.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've been using this keyboard for a bit over a year now, multiple hours a day almost every single day.

Every other keyboard I've ever used has shown signs of wear and tear by this point, this thing looks, feels and works like the day it came out of the box. Certainly by far the best keyboard I've ever owned.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Keyboard

Pros: sturdy, replaceable keys, LED lights, volume control knob.

Cons: Sometimes the 'scroll lock' light flashes, but you can easily fix that by moving the selector that has numbers '1234' on it from 1 to 4 then back.
