3 out of 5 eggsGhosting

Pros: It feels great to type on.

Cons: The ghosting will be the reason I don't use this keyboard for very long unfortunately.

3 out of 5 eggsMacros good, quality average

Pros: The macros and the background lighting are excellent and the primary reason I bought this keyboard.

The full size number pad is nice if you insert data a lot.

I expect keyboards to have media keys and volume keys these days.

Keys are not wearing off.

Cons: Quality of typing feels even less than those cheap, basic keyboards that come with computer bundles.

Background lights could get brighter, but this is just aesthetics. My mouse outshines this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I think after using a keyboard that isn't a laptop that I now appreciate ergonomic keyboards.

Overall, compared the current market on backlit, membrane style keyboards, this one is pretty average.

3 out of 5 eggsA Decent, Entry Level Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Adjustable backlit keyboard; Separate colored WSAD keys. helpful for playing most first person shooters (Counter Strike, Quake, etc etc) - Considering the keyboard is not mechanical, the keys still feel as though they have decent action to them.

Cons: Rubbery switches, don't exactly seem durable - The keys are placed a lot closer then most gaming keyboards I have used in the past, and it's taken some getting used to. The legs under the keyboard tend to collapse and don't seem particularly sturdy. No USB hubs.

Other Thoughts: It's a decent entry level gaming keyboard. However for a slightly larger investment, there are much better options out there.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Unique design makes it easy to clean. Love the style. Keys felt great when I first got it. Worked right away without needing software.

Cons: Keys seem to have worn out in days.

Other Thoughts: After using a cheap keyboard from an old pc for years I expected this to be a step up. I was very happy at first, but within days the D key started squeaking and sometimes it sticks. Now a week later WASD all have that issue as well as being hard to press down. Other keys I routinely use for gaming are starting to have issues as well. The problem seems to be that the keys have a considerable wobble to them and if you don't hit them right in the center with a straight downward stroke they grind on the way down. That may put this in the realm of user error, but as a gamer I face situations too frantic to be concerning myself with my typing style. Would not recommend.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Ghosting

Pros: Nice looks and feels.

Cons: Horrible ghosting, can't even type consecutive upper case letters holding "Shift", you can imagine with a password, you have to type it slowly if it involves holding shift.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fantastic keyboard for the money. Got this for $49.99 on sale. Really can't go wrong with that price point for what you're getting. Build quality is exceptional; definitely what you expect from Corsair. It's no K70, and it's not mechanical, but for $49, it really has no equal.

Cons: None so far. Just wish it came in white.

Other Thoughts: If you're building a gaming PC and need to adhere to a budget, you really can't go wrong with this keyboard. Corsair is fast becoming my favourite peripheral manufacturer on top of already making some of the greatest cases, coolers, PSU's.. you name it.

5 out of 5 eggsBest keyboard for the price

Pros: Très bon clavier pour jouer ou pour aller sur Internet. Il est très beau et bien conçu. Le clavier donne un air robuste et le plastique est de bonne qualité.
Le rétro-éclairage est également très bon avec les différents modes possible. Dans le noir il est parfait. Si vous êtes dans le noir total, le rétro-éclairage serais très intéressent.
Les macros sont très utiles et facilement programmable. Parfois un peu encombrant au début, mais c'est une habitude qui rapidement va prendre place.


Very good keyboard to play or to go on the Internet . It is very beautiful and well designed. The keyboard provides a robust air and the plastic is of good quality.
The backlight is also very good as possible with the various modes. In the dark it is perfect . If you are in the dark , the backlight would be very interested .
Macros are very useful and easy to program . Sometimes a bit cumbersome at first, but it's a habit that will quickly take place.

Cons: Je cherche encore...

I'm still looking ...

Other Thoughts: Je recommande ce clavier pour tout le monde!

I recommend this keyboard to anyone!

3 out of 5 eggsKey input is bugged

Pros: Looks good, feels good. Backlighting is nice.
Anti-ghosting is perfect as far as I can tell.

Cons: There is some kind of issue with the input for the keys. I type at a reasonably fast speed (120-140 wpm+) and the keyboard likes to studder.

For example, the word "definitely" shows up as "defifnitely" every single time, unless I type it slowly.

It seems to be only a few key combinations that cause it, but its defifnitely a bother and I wouldn't expect such a strange issue for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsNot KVM compatible

Pros: Nice lighting.

Cons: Won't transit keycodes to KVM switches which are required for remote switching (ctrl-ctrl, shift-shift, scrl lock-scrl lock, caps lock-caps lock). Confirmed by Corsair support (after finding someone who knew what a KVM switch was), although no mention in any of their data. As such, it's not usable for me.

Other Thoughts: I find it inexcusable for a manufacturer of premium keyboards not to mention that their products are incompatible with standard PC BIOSs, which is the cause of this problem.
