Corsair Gaming K95 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: We will see how this holds up over time. But man.. There is just no comparison to a laptop or other non-mechanical keyboard. Once you get used to this, everything else feels like garbage.
I knew I was in for a treat when I saw on the box that the key switches were engineered and manufactured in Germany.

I see others complaining about the software but I've had no problems. It is more intuitive than the Alienware command center program I was using on my M18x before, which is to say it's pretty dang easy to use, and it works. I don't know what the others are whining about.

The lights have 4 brightness settings, off, then 3 levels of brightness. I keep it on the 1st level, because level 3 will burn your retinas out. BRIGHT as you want it to be, this thing..
Flip it into rainbow mode for a neat party trick. People will talk, guaranteed.

I understand others also complaining about the logo. What is wrong with the logo? I think it's cool. Whatever.

Everything works as it should and this aint your mamas keyboard. Make sure you wash your hands before using and treat it with respect lol

Cons: For $180 it was hard to pull the trigger. I was on the fence about the lesser model without the macros but glad I sprung for this because I use macros in games a bit.

The wrist rest requires included screws that secure it in place. This is only a con because if you want to take it off for any reason you better have a screwdriver around.

The housing/chassis of the macro key section of the board is not metal the way the rest of the keyboards case is. It's plastic. It's a seamless transition and it doesn't bother me, but I think it would be great if it was all one solid piece of metal, no plastic.

The heavy braided cable that requires two USB ports. I'm just waiting for this braided bit to start unweaving and fraying the way my tactx mouse braid did.

I would have liked to have had a headphone jack or a USB port or both built into this thing, for $180 I want all the toys.

Other Thoughts: If it was military grade, titanium case all the way, spare keys, spare switches, modular/replaceable lighting source for eventualities...I mean if it was built to last FOREVER. I would buy it, even for $1000.

Is anyone listening? Corsair? Saitek? Microsoft? Absolutely anyone?

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - Dungeon Siege-III Game Coupon

Pros: This game got 6.0 on gamespot review. That is BAD. STAY AWAY.

Cons: It is NOT FREE!!! All it means is the thing you bought this with costs $60 less than you think it does.

Other Thoughts: RMA the piece of paper that grants you access to this terrible game and receive a $60 refund!!!
