4 out of 5 eggsCorsair K-95 Keyboard review.

Pros: Macros easy to record with or without adjustable delays

Cons: Cheap key caps or plastic like mechanical noise

Other Thoughts: I have gone through several gaming or customizable keyboard over many years. My first with macro keys was the early 90s the Gateway Anykey that came with higher-end Gateway Computers. I liked the 24 macro keys and the 8-way arrow keys. It was a really ahead of its time keyboard. The Anykey was made by EECO Maxi-Switch was discontinued before I could order another. It was a membrane keyboard and it started to have classic membrane key errors within a few years and had to take it completely apart to clean the contacts. The switch material began to distort and collapse to where the keyboard was done. I moved on to ORTECK Technologies 142 key unit sold by at the time FENTEK and these keyboards where tactile like an old IBM and worked so well I even traveled with it. Like the Anykey it had 24 macro keys and 8 arrow key pad. It took four years for the board to start going into a death-knell of errors. I bought another one and finally after another four yeas it also died. ORTECK stop making this device and I could not buy another. My hunt was on for a suitable replacement. Gamming became really huge and hardware being developed to support it. Now there are several customizable keyboards to choose from. I went with the name and some decent reviews and chose the Corsair K95 non-RGB. The dimmable white LEDs are just fine for me. I have really no problems with the function of the keyboard but the clacky cheap feel and sound of the spacebar and double and triple size keys is a common complaint. Even other office workers complained it is plain annoying and should not be an issue with a high-end keyboard. I tried to get help from Corsair support but all they came up with was try to dampen the keycap by using stick on rubber bumpers under the cap. There are also on the market gel o-rings online made just for this problem and also cuts down on keycap travel so they should not bottom out. I have to ask myself “WHY”. Why do I have to even contemplate dampening my key caps because the caps are made cheaply and the design is just crazy as they had to know this would be a problem? I mean this suppose to be a top rated keyboard not some default that came with the computer unit. I have a few basic Dell and HP boards that are the ones that are packed by default and they are far more poised then this K-95. Yes they are the basic membrane switches but that is not a good excuse. My old ORKEK was a mechanical switch board and it was solid and quiet. It felt like it was top notch. Corsair really needs to take a good hard look at the physical design and quality to go along with the price that folks are willing to pay for what is though as high-end hardware.

3 out of 5 eggsNot the Best

Pros: Great build quality.
Nice media controls.
Nice braided cables.
Macro keys are very nice too.

Cons: LEDs burnt out. I've been using the board for 1.5 years and more than 1/3 of them burnt out and don't work anymore. It looked nice for a little while at least right?
Expensive as hell.
The Macro keys are separated from the frame and are mounted on plastic while the rest of the board is sitting on aluminum. The back of keyboard is all plastic but extends for the macro keys. It's clear they used the K70 frame and added on the module separately rather than build the module into a new frame. This really isn't an issue or anything but it's worth mentioning.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't buy it again if I had the choice. Would go with another brand like Ducky, WASD, or even Filco for the money I spent on this.

3 out of 5 eggsToo many burnt-out LEDs

Pros: Nice feel to the keys, good keyboard rest.

Cons: Within the last week, four of the LEDs have burnt out. For an item I've used for less than a year, that is simply unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I would have looked at buying a different mechanical keyboard if I'd known this many LEDs were going to burn out so quickly.

3 out of 5 eggsLEDs

Pros: The keyboard feels amazing. The Cherry Red MX Switches are absolutely delightful. Each key press is smooth and light. The software is easy to figure out without any tutorials.

Cons: About half of my LEDs have either burnt out or have diminished to the point where it is impossible to tell if they are on or not. It started with just a few keys but quickly progressed like the plague to keys all acrosse my keyboard. Now I keep my LEDs off, to quarantine the survivors from the impending death that is burning out. Truly a shame. Also, the macro keys have rubber domes which provides a substantially different feel when pressed. Sometimes I am unsure of whether or nott I have actually pressed it, however, this is a matter of personal preference.

Other Thoughts: Overall, good keyboard. Would be a great keyboard if not for the LEDs. I have not tried sending my keyboard back because I did not keep every single scrap of paper that came with the box, which is what Corsair says you need to get a refund. Oh well. Buy this keyboard if you don't mind not having LEDs on even though you paid for them.

2 out of 5 eggsLEDs

Pros: The keyboard has a nice feel to it. Good design makes it easier to clean. That's about it

Cons: Most of my LEDS are burnt out. The software is absolute gargabe. I didn't spend over $100 for parts to start failing me.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible software, defective hardware

Pros: Nice design; looks and feels great

Cons: LEDs burn out really quickly; have to ship back to Corsair for a fix.
Software is absolutely terrible; it has less functionality than the SW for my 9-year old Logitech G11

Other Thoughts: The keyboard looks great, the LEDs are nice and bright (until they start burning out). This is a major problem with the white-LED K95s, If you are bent on getting this keyboard for some reason, you'd be better off buying it in-store locally, and springing for the IPR; it'll save you hassle and shipping costs when the LEDs inevitably burn out.
The feel of the keys is alright, though a little soft for my liking.
The software was the dealbreaker for me, TBH. I use the keyboard for work, and have all of the macro keys tied to specific actions. If you want to open bins or folders, you literally have to write individual cmd prompt scripts and tell the keyboard to run them. Brutal. Sorry, Corsair, not going to write a pile of cmd prompt scripts JUST TO OPEN A CUSTOM FOLDER.

Returned the keyboard, bought the Logitech g510s instead. Not as nice-looking, LEDs not as bright, but a billion times more useful.

3 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard LED's No Good

Pros: The mechanical part of the keyboard is top notch. It feels solid and I really like it. However, the LED’s will not last. (see comment below).

Cons: Although I purchased this keyboard in July, I did not take it out of the box and start using it until the beginning of November. Less than two weeks of use, a couple of the LED’s went out.

Contacted Customer Service regarding burned out LEDs. They were very courteous and helpful and immediately issued an express RMA. That was November 15, today is February 1st and more LEDs have gone out. Originally it was 2, now there are 8 burned out LEDs. Every time I inquire about it, I keep getting: “sorry out of stock”. This is a very popular keyboard and I can understand having a limited supply during the Christmas rush; but come on, it is the beginning of February. NewEgg and other vendors have it in stock, yet they cannot obtain one for existing customers?

To be fair, they did offer an exchange for the “non-sailboat” version; but that is not what I bought originally and this other version sells for $20 less. They also suggested sending them my defective keyboard so they can speed up the return process once they have stock available. So, what am I supposed to use in the meantime? Go buy another keyboard, No ThankYou.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate from 8/20/14

Pros: Nice Looking Keyboard

Cons: So I have had this keyboard just over 2 years now. It still functions properly, but I don't think it's as responsive as when I first bought it. At 1st it did not bother me that the LED lights were burning out, but now over half the LED lights are out. It makes me angry that I spent so much money on a keyboard that is already showing signs of wear. My last keyboard that I had before this one (Microsoft Natural Keyboard) lasted 10 years before I noticed any problems.

Other Thoughts: This may be a little nit picky so take it with a grain of salt. The caps lock button is way to close to the "A" button in my opinion. I am constantly hitting it when I am typing. Of course it doesn't help that I have big fingers, but I never had this issue with other keyboards

3 out of 5 eggsBe careful.

Pros: The best mechanical keyboard I've ever used. Aside from the con below.

Cons: After a little more than a year of owning this.. the LEDs are starting to fail. Last week only one had failed. Woke up this morning and 6 more are out. Going to contact Corsair tomorrow morning and see if I can get a replacement. After paying so much you'd expect a keyboard to function perfectly for YEARS to come.

Other Thoughts: N/A
