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.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Its a good semi-cheap keyboard. You get exactly what you pay for.

Cons: It can break easily if mishandled. I own two and lets just say it isn't childproofed. One is broke unfortunately.

Other Thoughts: Get it if you want a cool LED backlit keyboard the colors go great with most LED strobe setups.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's meh, really meeh

Pros: -Its a full sized keyboard
-adequately spaced keys and macros
-back lite to any color preference
-media controls
-decent key feel

Cons: -price, oh yeah, and price...
-doesn't have more features
-isn't mechanical
-says full key roll over, doesn't quite do it (see other thoughts, it'll be ** for those who TL;DR)

Other Thoughts: So where to begin, since owning this keyboard it has been quite the journey to say the least. When I first got this keyboard the MR, M1, M2, and M3 keys were mixed up and out of order and my macro keys didn't work. I sent it off to corsair for RMA, only get a broken/smashed keyboard from them 2 weeks later, then I had to send that one back for RMA which was pain, and very annoying. So at the end of that episode I was without this keyboard for about a month and a half from its original purchase date. Don't get me wrong corsair's customer service was there to assist me with every issue, without a problem, but it would have been better if this all never happened. At this point I kind of regret purchasing it. I also was surprised after all my problems they didn't try to compensate me at all, I didn't expect it, but with a customer with this many issues, with a new product, they could have been a bit more considerate IMO.

**Now that I've ACTUALLY had the chance to use it, when playing games I find that I have to repress a lot of keys and sometimes the keys don't work on the first press with other keys pressed, so I have to repress all my keys just to get the one I wanted initially to work, if that makes sense. So I am lead to believe that this keyboard probably doesn't have full rollover, or my keyboard is malfunctioning and I REALLY don't feel like dealing with corsair again.

The corsair software that they have you download is not the best, I'd give it 5/10, it can be problematic and sometimes buggy.

I have to agree with other reviewers, at this price point you can get a similarly equipped keyboards for about 20 dollars less, with a lot of the same functionality. If this keyboard was mechanical it would make it worth the price, if I could do it all over again, I would have spent the extra 50 or 60 dollars and bought a k70.

All and all, I've always been lead to believe that corsair is a top brand, and rightfully so, but I was very unimpressed with this product. I will buy other corsair products, but I am a very disappointed customer. However, at the time of this post I am patiently awaiting the new K95 RGB, which looks spectacular, so this keyboard will be replaced.

3 out of 5 eggsbad at passwords

Pros: It seems to type well enough under normal circumstances.

Cons: This is an addendum to my previous review & something that spoils this keyboard for me. It does not seem able to fill out passwords or Google searches. You go to fill in a password & you look to see if it's working and then you look away and realize the keyboard has filled in two characters and then inexplicably stopped. The Corsair K40 does this repeatedly. The same for Google searches; it stops somewhere in the middle, especially if you hesitate for a second. It does this all the time and you wind up watching the screen so you don't type in characters and they don't appear on the screen.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why this keyboard does this repeatedly. It may be something to do with the anti-ghosting technology. I do know it's irritating. Maybe because this is a gaming keyboard they figured this is allowable. It's enough to make me not recommend the K40 to anybody.
