2 out of 5 eggsmeh?

Pros: RGB works after fiddling with the software for an hour but it works. (mechanical - more on that later)

Cons: constantly reaching to WASD and I am reaching to caps A,S,Q. numbers also seem to be different from other Qwerty boards. I cant tell what but I reach for 2 and hit 1. and 1 and hit ` (I think the keys are slightly thinner than normal keyboards. RGB doesnt really get that bright. right now I have it solid blue to match my PC. RGB on its brightest setting colors like orange and yellow appear mottled and whitish. and although corsair claims that this is a mechanical keyboard I beg to differ. the keys , as best I can explain it, have some initial resistance maybe 55g? and then they have kind of a springyness on the way back up. kind of like a membrane switch but a little more gamer oriented. I do have to depress the key it's entire length to register an actual key press. so I would say this is not an actual mechanical keyboard.

Other Thoughts: while this is a perfectly fine keyboard as far as a every day plain jane I just cant get over the fact that I payed $85 for it! It's really nothing special when there are a number of other keyboards in this $ range like the TT poseidon or just upgrade to a STRAFE keyboard from corsair. I really was hoping to find a similarity to the MX brown but I find myself a little dissapointed honestly. I wish I could say better things because this is corsair and it should be better but I think this is the ultimate 2 star rating... I might change my mind after a thousand more key presses, or i might just send it back and get what I want. but Newegg was awesome and got this to me with a water cooler and case in 3 days instead of the assured 4-7. GREAT SERVICE!

5 out of 5 eggsLoving them so far!

Pros: I purchased 2 of these keyboards for my girlfriend and I to use for our gaming rigs and so far very happy. The RGB lighting effects are great looking and easy to set up. The keys themselves are very precise for rubber dome and manage to give a feeling of a slightly mushed mechanical stroke. The layout of the keyboard is comfortable and simple. And overall the keyboard feels very solid for a non-mechanical option.

Cons: The Corsair software sometimes lags with startup causing your lighting profile to load a minute after booting, but not really an issue.

Other Thoughts: The seller was excellent and provided me with a personal e-mail containing tracking as well as a thank you. Quick shipping and personal service from a 3rd party seller. Would highly recommend!

5 out of 5 eggsRAINBOWS!

Pros: I had a Logitech g110 that lasted 4 years. This baby is it's replacement. So far so good, it features the same things but the lighting can be of any color, and can ever slowly switch between colors making your keyboard a shifting rainbow.

The macro configuration is decent. I haven't dug too deep in it yet.

Works well when you plug it for the first time, works best with the drivers.

It's not really expensive too.

Cons: The overall keyboard is thick, I sometime hit my numpad when going from my mouse to the right side for my keyboard. Not a big deal...

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Better than the standard keyboard, you can change the color of the board, WASD is highlighted for you if you need to look at the keys.

Cons: The Macro Keys are difficult to setup without YouTubing it.

Other Thoughts: None, just know its wired and it requires a USB 2.0 connection.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money

Pros: Honestly, I have used many brands of keyboards. This keyboard is fair. Within two months the space key malfunctions.
I think it' should have been priced at $40.00 new maybe.
I paid $84.00 with a $10.00 rebate that never came.
In low light, the letters on the keys are fuzzy, regardless of what color you choose. The lights behind the keys arent consistent to light up the entire symbols.
I'm just saying, I had a factory Dell keyboard that worked better. It didnt light up but so what? Somehow we managed for years without that feature. The space bar though is pretty old technology and pretty relevant for ummm...everything.

Cons: PRICE. Feels cheap. Looks okay in person. Back lights aren't consistent to light up all of the symbols.
Space bar is malfunctioning and it is relatively still new. I don't play hard on it. I spend more time on social media than games.
The software to control the lights wasn't in the box. Bought new from Best Buy. You can download it but for the price, it should have a disk.

Other Thoughts: Spend just a little extra money and get a better keyboard. I truly wouldn't mind this keyboard if it cost 30 or 40 dollars. That is what is worth new. The minute keys begin to not work properly it becomes trash. Who has time to go back to a store, stand in line, return it. The box has a missing UPC code because that was mailed in for a rebate that never came. Just buy another brand. Let Corsair figure it out someday with other test subjects.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsfirmware issues

Pros: looks sexy
not heavy
not demaged

Cons: I can't change the color of this keyboard, stock at a red theme.
Maybe defective, I cannot install the software because it says the keyboard is not connected to the USB port when it is and is fully function, I can type and everything. But cannot customize to LED software. Very disappointed with Corsair. The purpose of this keyboard is to be able to change colors( but I can't) and of course to type.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry to hear that you are unable to set up your keyboard. We suggest that you make sure that you're using the Raptor K40 software and not the Corsair Utility Engine, you can find the Raptor K40 software at corsair.com/downloads or you may click on the link below. If you are using the correct software and the software still cannot detect your keyboard and allow you to change the settings, please submit a ticket at corsair.force.com or call us at 888-222-4346 and we'll be more than happy to help you out.

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for a gamer who doesn't want to spend a lot

Pros: The price! Even though the keys aren't mechanical, they feel nice and are plenty responsive. I like that you can change the color of the LED light. It feels sturdy and has just enough features.

Cons: Had to return my first one because of a faulty left arrow key. The 2nd one was great and I'm happy with it.
