4 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: It's physical construction is fantastic. When it works right, it is the best keyboard I've ever owned. It's really pretty. REALLY pretty.

Cons: Right now, only passive effects work on my keyboard, in spite of the software saying it's all working correctly. I can program anything I want, but it never does anything.

Other Thoughts: At first, my keyboard only worked for a few hours, then stopped working altogether. My other review doesn't actually even state that it stopped working altogether, but it did (and I'd remove the thing if I could). I couldn't type anything, nothing responded. It seemed like it was just plain dead. Then came back to life after a while. Cannot explain what happened, but at least now I can use it.

5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely Worth the wait

Pros: Beautiful bright LEDS.
Smooth key presses.

Cons: On the keys that have 2 symbols (i.e. 5 %) the bottom symbols are all a little bit more faded looking that the others which are very vibrant.

Other Thoughts: Software was a little bit confusing for me personally. Once I figured it out, it was very simple to use. I first saw this when linustechtips did a video over this keyboard back in January and it showed the keyboard doing various colors and patterns. It lived up to the hype for sure! Even better in person.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: This is not a heavy keyboard and the build quality over all is top notch. The layout of the keys is nice and types well. Custom lighting is very nice and opens up allot of options for custom builds. Looking forward to writing another review after awhile to report on longevity with this keyboard.

Cons: There is a learning curve for programming the lighting effects and profiles with this keyboard. That is to be expected seeing how every single independent key can be changed to over 16 million colors and that is not including the effects you can add into every keystroke. Over all this is my only complaint so far. Though I'm sure with updates the software will improve in ease of use.

Other Thoughts: Well constructed keyboard with a simple layout. Other then the slight learning curve this keyboard has been a joy to use and tinker with.

5 out of 5 eggsK70 RGB Updated Review

Pros: I reviewed this the day after I originally purchased the keyboard and was having issues with the software. After playing with the software, reading some of the manual, and thanks to some good YouTube tutorials, I can safely say that this keyboard really is great. There is still a decent amount of color bleed from different colored keys, but now that I know how to use the software I'm a happy camper. The ripple and wave effects are spectacular. So much so that I was distracted playing games.

Cons: I'm still bummed they got rid of the USB pass through, the textured keys, and the key removal tool. The software still needs work which hopefully will be fixed with an update. The light bleed is distracting but not a deal-killer. These things are enough for me to upgrade the 4 eggs to 4.5 (if there was such a thing). It's an amazing keyboard but the software and firmware still needs some polishing.

Other Thoughts: I keep reading and hearing things about the keyboard not working at all or malfunctioning. Maybe I just got lucky that it works with my setup (Windows 8.1, i7 4790K, 16GB RAM, Asus GTX 780 Ti, MSi Gaming 7 motherboard, Samsung SSD and Seagate 7200 Barracuda). They keyboard doesn't light up sometimes until after I log into Windows, but that isn't a huge deal. Anytime I shut the computer down, I'm also getting an app that won't close but it doesn't tell me what the program is. I'm pretty sure it's the Corsiar keyboard software but don't have a way to prove it.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: When you get one that works, I bet it's awesome.

Cons: Worked for a day, then the program that operates the lights just stopped working. I can get a wave of lights to go across the keyboard... and that's IT. The rest of the options aren't doing JACK. I've been messing with this for hours and I had it operating just fine doing this exact stuff yesterday.... but now it isn't doing anything.
This makes NO sense and is AWFUL. What a total waste of money this turned out to be...

DO NOT BUY THIS THING. IT IS GARBAGE.

Other Thoughts: So insanely disappointed. This keyboard is supposed to be the top dog for customizing, but I'm not being allowed to do anything with it.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: - Authentic Cherry Keys
- Good construction

Cons: - Software is atrocious. Creating my own profile was a terrible experience. Putting different colors next to each other cause terrible bleeding into different zones. I had white next to red and ended up with pink.
- 142 page manual. This is ridiculous for a keyboard manual. The software was too complex for a simple keyboard.
- Dim light. In day time, the lights were not comparable to my previous Razer Black Widow Ultimate.
- Removing the single USB port from previous K70 model.
- They don't include the textured key caps that came with previous K70 model.
- The Num Pad 5 key completely stop working in less than a week of use.

Other Thoughts: I pre-ordered this keyboard from a different retailer. I would have left my review there, but the listing disappeared recently. This keyboard has given me nothing but bad experiences. Some things like not including the USB or key caps is not huge, but unreasonable considering the price increase to $180. The key dying within a week of use is inexcusable. I've just returned mine. This keyboard is not user friendly and early adoption of this keyboard with the given price is not worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsONE ISSUE ONLY

Pros: It is smooth, feels durable, colors are vibrant(except what I explain below)

Cons: Software was medium to hard to figure out.(youtube it)
MY MAIN GRIPE: on any key that has a double line being used such as the number keys where you have a ! and a 1... the ! lights up, but the 1 doesnt light up very well at all. Same with the enter button and caps lock and all those type of keys where they use up two lines on the key, the bottom line does not light up very well. The LED is positioned at the top of the key instead of using dual LEDs for the specific keys that use two lines of the key cap. It was so disappointing to me that this happened from such a reputable company, especially when they prolonged the release date. Very Very Very disappointed about that. Someone should have known that this is an issue, the main reason I got this keyboard IS BECAUSE OF THE LIGHTS... AND IT DOESNT EVEN LIGHT UP THE WHOLE KEY??!?!?!?!?

Other Thoughts: I also do not like how I cant change the color of the windows lock button and the brightness button, but when it is in rainbow mode, those buttons change colors, biut the software wont change them for me.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's really as cool as you think it is.

Pros: Ergonomic wrist pad. Great switches. VERY programmable. Huge user manual when you get lost programming. Amazing price point.

Cons: Keyboard illumination and setting utility (Corsair Gaming Software) difficult to use and intuitive. Can't build key flashes individually for each mode. It is a global setting.

Other Thoughts: This thing is really great. After watching a few videos other users uploaded, I was able to make my own profiles in about 2 hours. It does have a learning curve and the Corsair Gaming Software is hard to get used to and is unintuitive.
