2 out of 5 eggsGood Keyboard, but has issues

Pros: Awesome typing feel
Wonderful key action for typing (I'm a developer so I'm also typing)
Good feature set
Volume wheel is awesome

Cons: Backlighting - I've had the keyboard for roughly 3 months now, and the light under the "I' and the down arrow keys have quit working. It doesn't seem to affect that type typing at all, but with the cost of this keyboard, I would have expected more than 3 months before the LEDs started going out on the keys.

Loud - While the mechanical keyboard action is awesome, be aware that it IS very loud. My office is a corner of my bedroom and my wife has repeatedly stated that this keyboard will not only keep her awake, but also wake up from sleeping. Personally, the sound doesn't bother me as I type, but it is somewhat noisy.

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you're looking for a great keyboard to actually type on, this is a great one. If you're looking for something that all the features are going to last, you may want to look elsewhere.

4 out of 5 eggsReally good

Pros: This is an amazing keyboard I could instantly fee the difference in everything i did. It was easier to push down keys the lighting was bright. The keyboard felt good. The volume roller is very nice. NO DEAD LEDS!!!

Cons: The keyboard died after 8 months. This keyboard collects material like crazy and needs air to clean out or removal of the keys. The software doesn't always save macros to internal memory.

1 out of 5 eggsCoffee spill made it non-functional

Pros: Nice mechanical keyboard with lighting. Enjoyed it until a spill caused it to fail and exposed design deficiencies.

Cons: Poor design means it is very hard to impossible to repair or even clean after a spill leaves a key repeating continuously.

Other Thoughts: The metal keyboard tray and main circuit board are basically bonded together meaning you can't see / clean / fix any problems. Also the lack of a protective coating on a lot of exposed conductors means spills and/or dirt will eventually cause parts of it to fail - like leds etc.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy it for the macro keys

Pros: After a little more than a year with my K95, I’m very happy with it. The board has a solid feel, I type fast and comfortably with the Cherry red key switches. and the media controls are very convenient. But the feature that makes the board for me is the macro keys, which I use all the time -- they save me a lot of time and agggravation.

Cons: Lots of people have had trouble with the led backlighting. I don’t use the lights and keep them turned off, so I wouldn’t know if they were working or not (last time I checked, they all were).

Other Thoughts: The one mod I made to the board is to install o-rings on the three main rows of the keyboard (alphabet & punctuation keys) --- I like the slightly softer feel and typing is much quieter, which my wife appreciates when I’m working late at night.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat all around, except the LEDs

Pros: - Excellent build quality
- Very responsive
- Highly customizable
- Amazing feel

Cons: - The LEDs die quick.

- While the extra G keys are great and all, they don't serve much of a purpose while gaming. However, they serve a great purpose for general things inside miscellaneous programs, such as Photoshop. (Great for macro-ing shortcuts to them.)

- Attachment with the G keys is not metal. At first glance you won't really notice this; Not entirely a con in my eyes, but something to point out.

Other Thoughts: As I'm writing this review, I've owned this keyboard for almost exactly 6 months.
Two weeks ago, the G5's LED went out. Last week the G8's LED went out as well.
Today, I turn on the backlighting to notice the G1, G13, G15, and the 0 LEDs have all died.

While the customizable lighting is great and all, it just doesn't last long...

Don't get me wrong, this keyboard is amazing, but the LEDs die out really, really quickly.
If you can get over the fact that half of the LEDs will be dead within a year, then definitely get this keyboard.
Otherwise, maybe look into something else.

All in all, it's an excellent keyboard. After having read so many reviews stating how quickly the LEDs die, I thought if I kept the backlighting off I'd be helping the longevity of the backlighting... Nope. I barely turn on the backlighting anyways, and it just gets more and more depressing each time I do. More and more LEDs die.

2 out of 5 eggsproblem with led lights

3 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard, noisy

Pros: Good lighting, macros pretty easy to configure

Cons: noisy - forget about being on a conference call and typing on it

Other Thoughts: F8, 4/$, and 9 LED's died. I contacted Corsair on 9/2 about 2 failed LED's and they offered to replace once it becomes available, eta 9/19. Contacted them again 9/29 and they put me on a notification list and told me to expect something by 10/24.
In between 9/2 and 9/29 the "9" LED failed.
Another thing I see is the keyboard draws power from the PC even when you shut off the PC. I did not look into this too much; there might be a way to turn it off.
The keyboard functions fine without the LED's, but imagine you have a defective keyboard that NEEDS replacement. You pay a lot of money for something that will fail pretty quick, and the 2 years warranty doesn't do you any good if the vendor cannot stand behind their product. By the time you get the replacement, you will by a new one.

4 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard, LED issues though

Pros: This is my first mechanical keyboard, takes some getting used to, but it is very sturdy and responsive thus far.

Cons: After just a little over 3 months, my first LED burnt out on my keyboard. Very unfortunate, but seems to be an issue with these keyboards.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Corsair and they are going to replace my keyboard. I will have to pay shipping ... which is sad, but at least it will get fixed. They have also said that they have changed LED manufacturer's, so hopefully this LED problem will disappear ... as many people online are having problems with this.

They have assured me of this, and said they will pay shipping there and back if I have the issue again. At least they are standing behind their product, and it sounds like strides have been made to increase quality. This is the only reason I am giving it 4 stars. If you get an older batch, don't be surprised by having your LED's burnout. Hopefully this problem disappears soon.
