5 out of 5 eggsYou Can't Beat Cherry!

Pros: I purchased one of these keyboards back in 05/2014, and even did a review at that time. I punish keyboards, and even though I'm not a gamer, I do a lot of coding, programming, text file editing, and file renaming. I tend to wear out keyboards in less than six months, but... As you can see, if I would have made it three more months, I would have had this keyboard for more than two years straight. Considering Cherry MX key switches are rated for more than 50 million operations, I wore out my left-shift key. The key noise is by no way "stealthy", you get some feedback sound, but the key action is very tactical. The LED brightness has multiple settings, from off, to bright enough to see even in bright light settings. The keyboard is built very solid, robust, and has some weight to it. Even though the cost is pricey, for me, having a solid keyboard, in my work, for almost two years, more than makes up for the money.

Cons: The Cherry Brown switches are between the Red, and Blue. Red is the most silent, then comes the Browns, and lastly, the Blue being the loudest. Browns are a good mix of both worlds, don't buy these if you want silent key pressing. I guess the only complaint I have is the replacement time, it would be nice if Cherry could up the operations from 50 million, to 100 million - LoL

Other Thoughts: If you want to use the pass-through USB on the back of the keyboard, you need two USB ports, as the cable going to the computer has two USB plugs... One for the keyboard, the other for the pass-through. I know a few people stated in their reviews of faulty LEDs, or keys themselves... My replacement keyboard was perfect, no failed LEDs, no issues with any of the keys themselves. I use this keyboard, and my previous one, on a linux machine, so the "Windows" key is useless to me. A good value, well built, and is plug-n-play on linux. I keep this keyboard bookmarked for replacement, as it has stood up to heavy punishing work, longer than any keyboard I have ever owned. The keys are mounted above the base, so you can blow out under the keys easily. I really can't find any fault to this keyboard, and even though I think its pricey, and the life of the key switches being longer would be nice, having it a daily keyboard for almost two years, I can't complain. (nor can I knock any eggs off for it). Sometimes... You get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Keyboard for $$$$

Pros: I have owned this keyboard for about 6 months now and have quite enjoyed it. I purchased the Brown Switches, for I am a little heavy on keys while gaming and typing. Its pretty heavy and stays in place and I love the volume and mute feature control. This makes it simple to quickly control the sound without the need to reach for my speaker controls or embedded volume controls (i.e. You Tube) or use my headset volume control.

The wrist rest makes the keyboard comfortable to use and lessens fatigue. The key noise (for browns) isn't to loud and the responsiveness is what I expected. For games, I have seen a HUGE improvement over the old membrane keyboard I used while gaming. Typing is pleasant and the keys are just the right size for my long fingers.

The RED LEDs are bright, but can be turned down or off with a simple push of a button. I haven't used the Red gamer keys yet (the WASDs keys) for gaming, but really don't see the need for them. Corsair does have a tool to remove the keys though to replace the WASDs gaming keys or to help you clean the unit.

If you want a mechanical keyboard that is going to last a loooong time, I would highly recommend giving this a whirl.

Cons: The only CON I had was I got a keyboard where the space bar was not working. A simple return and fast shipping from Newegg corrected this. I have not had a single issue with the board yet.

Other Thoughts: Great for typing and gaming. Looks good on the desk and the keys are layed out perfectly for my use. Great Buy!!!

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good keyboard

Pros: * Love the look, nice metal look.
* Pleasure to type on
* Media keys are nice

Cons: * Does not play nice with Linux (Ubuntu 12.04)
** Some keys are buggy, they register twice and this makes things untypeable

Other Thoughts: I bought a brown keyboard for work where I use Linux. It works with simple plug in BUT has a bug where some critical keys were repeating twice.

I also have a cherry blue version of this same keyboard on windows 7, no issues at all.

5 out of 5 eggsKeyboard

Pros: Bought this bad boy to replace the same K70 but a cherry red mx keyboard that I purchased 2 weeks ago from WorseBuy(the pun) for 35% cheaper; well, from black friday deal.

Comparing the feels for typing, I actually prefer cherry brown mx.
It feels a lot smoother while I was getting a lot of unwanted letters being pressed from red.

Cons: USB plug is looser than the cherry red mx K70 that I replaced, a bit wobly while plugged in, but I wouldn't really consider this as a con, just a comparison from my observation of both products. Still a premium keyboard

5 out of 5 eggscorsair k70

Pros: Cherry mx brown
Aluminum viki style keyboard
Thick usb cable for durability
Red led lights
Price(got it when it's on sale for $89)

Cons: If i have to choose one, macro software is not supported, but still it is awsome keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I have tried K70 with red switches. I really liked the build quality but for me cherry mx red is not my type. So I returned the old one and got this.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this keyboard

Pros: After much research and waiting for Corsair to release a keyboard with cherry mx brown switches, I am very glad I waited. This keyboard is the perfect blend of quiet keys and mechanical feedback thanks to the brown switches. The LED backlight is adjustable, so I'm not sure why some people are griping that it cannot be turned off. Extra features like selective key backlighting, Windows key disable, multimedia buttons and a sturdy cable are very nice to have.

Cons: The first keyboard I purchased was the gunmetal/blue backlighting version and several keys went out after a few months. Corsair customer service was quick to resolve the issue and replaced my keyboard with the newer black/red version. I haven't had a problem since.

5 out of 5 eggsNice sound. Responsive. Good for crumbs

Pros: It has a nice click when typing. Its not extremely loud, but still nice. Very satisfying to type on. Also, the bottom is open. So if you spill crumbs or whatever beneath the keys its very easy to clean under.
Also comes with a nice key removal tool. And the replacement keys have a nice texture.

Cons: The replacement keys for the numbers don't have symbols on them. So if someone who uses your keyboard needs to look at the symbols for whatever reason they aren't there.

Other Thoughts: Really nice and not too loud.

4 out of 5 eggsI love it

Pros: Keyboard functions exactly how I hoped it would.

Cons: Minus one star because the LED under the '3' key has a loose connection, and goes in and out when typing.

5 out of 5 eggsEasily My Favorite Model, but I'm a Blues Man

Pros: - Solid construction, a good deal of weight to it.
- You'll never want to use Fn keys again after using the multimedia keys on this board, especially the volume roller.
- You can't beat Cherry MX switches.
- In my opinion, the most attractive design I've seen.
- LEDs aren't so bright at to blind you, but still work well in bright environments.
- Wrist pad has a nice feel to it. It can be detached easily, but doesn't fall off when you lift the keyboard to move it.
- Raised keys and aluminum face make this keyboard a breeze to clean.
- Font is crisp and very legible.

Cons: - Cord is stiff and heavy, can be an issue if the USB slots on your case don't line up with the orientation the cable desires.
- When using Ubuntu, the system treats the brightness button as various other buttons depending on what the level is being set to (calculator, page refresh, etc...)
- Doesn't come in Cherry MX Blues
- Can be seen as expensive, but the quality really does make it worth it.

Other Thoughts: I purchased an older K70 just under two years ago. Two weeks ago the multimedia keys stopped working. I'm in love with the volume roller, so I contacted Corsair and had an RMA performed. Corsair was quick and offered me this keyboard as a replacement, which I am now typing on, so props to Corsair in the customer support department.

The issue I have, and this doesn't detract from this product at all, is that my old K70 had Cherry MX Blue switches, blue LEDs, and a silver face plate. Unfortunately, Corsair no longer seems to produce boards with Blue switches (or blue LEDs if you don't want to go full RGB), and so I was forced to accept Brown switches in my replacement board.

The difference between Blue and Brown is pretty significant, and as someone who both plays games and types regularly, I can't say I enjoy the brown switched nearly as much as the Blues, though I wouldn't go as far as to say they're bad for me. While the Browns are still audible, the click lacks in clack, and the sound doesn't quite line up with actuation. I also barely notice the tactile feedback compared to my old Blues. I simply am not getting the satisfaction out of the Browns that I was so use to with the Blues. This is, however, a personal gripe, and so I'm not counting it as a con. Different Keys are made for different people. If you're unsure what key is good for you, you can always buy a cheap sampler and try all the keys out for yourself.

I haven't decided whether to keep the board yet for myself or buy a board with Blue switches, but the K70 is surely my favorite model. I've tried several other boards, including Razer Black Widows (both Cherry and Razer switch types), and I just don't think they compare. If you like Cherry MX Browns (or Reds for that matter), I would strongly recommend this board.
