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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice keyboard. Have had it for almost two weeks and so far its good for what I need it for.

Cons: The only problem is the short legs, they could be taller, need to prop my keyboard up on something to be right height for gaming. For normal use the legs are not bad. No manual to show how to configure the G Keys. had to go online and print one out.

2 out of 5 eggsNever Touching Corsair Again

Pros: - Nice backlighting

Cons: - Manufacturing issues
- Unreliable
- Sticky keys!

Other Thoughts: Within 24 hours my W key was sticking. Something that I had not seen people complaining about much with the K30. I sent it back and It was replaced a week later, and I hoped that now I had a working keyboard.

It's only been 5 hours and I am already disappointed. The pop out stands on this one are of slightly different heights, so while the keyboard is fine if it's not raised, as soon as I use the pop up stands, the keyboard becomes unbalanced, slides and wobbles.

I expected a lot more for the money.

Definitely recommend avoiding.

5 out of 5 eggsK30 Corsair Keyboard

Pros: Pretty much the whole keyboard is a pro. The key-caps are the perfect texture and feel great on the fingers. The media keys, for me, are aREEEEAAALLL good, coming from a $5 microsoft keyboard. Back lighting is fantastic for a $50 keyboard

Cons: The only thing that bothers me about this keyboard is how much dust gets attracted to it. I just cleaned it recently, within the last 5 days, and it's already as dusty as it was. To make it a little worse, the texture on the very front makes it easier for dirt from your palms to stick to it. Also, some of the transparent parts of the key caps aren't very transparent or the color doesn't go all the way through the key cap.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome keyboard.

Pros: All around awesome! The back light on the keyboard is great for gaming at night and the raised keys feel good on the fingers. The extra keys for gaming is a great addition to this keyboard.

Cons: The keys are slightly smaller then I expected, but overall i can adjust to it.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap, works

Pros: - Backlit keyboard
- No driver issues

Cons: - Didn't fix my ghosting problems (it's not PS/2) which you think they could have added it for a few bucks and that would be it.

Other Thoughts: Okay so if you have trouble with ghosting when playing something like Battlefield or Red Orchestra, or really any other game, this keyboard won't help.

4 out of 5 eggsBought it when it was $250

Pros: - Small form factor
- Gets benefits from both SSD and HDD in one except (see cons)

Cons: - Price/Performance is not good. It'd be cheaper to a faster SSDs and 2 x 1TB HDD in RAID for the same money that I paid for when it was on sale!
- Performance is also crippled because both are running off the same SATA, meaning if you have anything less than 6.0 gb/s SATA ports, you will have wasted your money.

Other Thoughts: This could work better in PCI Express, but it would als be more expensive so it's not worth the money unless you really don't have the room.
