Decent keyboard, definitely has ghosting issues

Pros: I really like the feel of the keys while typing. I haven't really gotten into the macro keys (didn't really require that as a feature).

Cons: Keep hitting "G1" trying to hit Esc. Might try to write a macro so that G1 = Esc.
Biggest problem with this keyboard is that you do get ghosting or repeating letters in certain combinations. For instance, a name I end up typing frequently is "Jess" - which often comes out to "jejss" typing with this keyboard. Overall most of my gaming doesn't rely on particularly accurate typing, but it is a bit obnoxious to constantly apologize to a friend for greeting them with a messed up name.

Other Thoughts: I would probably recommend this keyboard for an entry-level gamer. As long as you're not, i dunno, mudding or something that requires accurate rapid typing :)

Pretty good, but not flawless

Pros: -Keyboard is responsive; rarely any issues in MOBAs or other instances of multiple simultaneous inputs
-Red back-light and dedicated dimmer button are fantastic
-Rubber dome keys give a great feel and all of them still function two years later
-Absolutely love having media buttons (play, stop, skip) and volume buttons on the keyboard itself
-Great having different configurations saved in the profile keys; great for multiple users

Cons: -My biggest issue, and it's why I removed an egg, is that the paint is coming off of multiple keys on the left hand side, especially 'W', 'A', and 'D'. I believe the keyboard is still under warranty, but I don't want to go without a keyboard for the paint coming off. I don't doubt Corsair would take care of me, but at the end of the day, these reviews are for the product, not service. And, at this price point, you shouldn't have paint coming off of keys within at least a year, let alone 3 months (which was how long it took for mine to start chipping off).

-The G keys condense the rest of the 'regular' keyboard buttons, meaning that parents or kids who occasionally use the keyboard will be thrown off a bit, and it takes some getting used to if you're coming from a standard Logitech or something similar

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you can get it on sale, I'd say go for it. If some chipping paint is going to ruin it for you, maybe look elsewhere. It gets the job done, and has held up mechanically very well.

Awesome!!

Pros: Built my first pc that I will use for some gaming and work. Did not have the budget or need mechanical. Originally bought a ttesports commander prime for $35 on another site. It was a huge disappointment and sent it back. The feel and quality of this keyboard for $40 is amazing. And red LED matched my build perfectly. Absolutely no complaints. Love it!

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: Absolutely no regrets and I really researched. I am very OCD with research. Very happy. Nothing better in this price range. Big fan of Corsair after purchasing this keyboard, M65 mouse, and even one of their mouse pads.

Ghosting

Pros: It feels great to type on.

Cons: The ghosting will be the reason I don't use this keyboard for very long unfortunately.

Macros good, quality average

Pros: The macros and the background lighting are excellent and the primary reason I bought this keyboard.

The full size number pad is nice if you insert data a lot.

I expect keyboards to have media keys and volume keys these days.

Keys are not wearing off.

Cons: Quality of typing feels even less than those cheap, basic keyboards that come with computer bundles.

Background lights could get brighter, but this is just aesthetics. My mouse outshines this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I think after using a keyboard that isn't a laptop that I now appreciate ergonomic keyboards.

Overall, compared the current market on backlit, membrane style keyboards, this one is pretty average.

A Decent, Entry Level Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Adjustable backlit keyboard; Separate colored WSAD keys. helpful for playing most first person shooters (Counter Strike, Quake, etc etc) - Considering the keyboard is not mechanical, the keys still feel as though they have decent action to them.

Cons: Rubbery switches, don't exactly seem durable - The keys are placed a lot closer then most gaming keyboards I have used in the past, and it's taken some getting used to. The legs under the keyboard tend to collapse and don't seem particularly sturdy. No USB hubs.

Other Thoughts: It's a decent entry level gaming keyboard. However for a slightly larger investment, there are much better options out there.

2/ 5

Pros: Unique design makes it easy to clean. Love the style. Keys felt great when I first got it. Worked right away without needing software.

Cons: Keys seem to have worn out in days.

Other Thoughts: After using a cheap keyboard from an old pc for years I expected this to be a step up. I was very happy at first, but within days the D key started squeaking and sometimes it sticks. Now a week later WASD all have that issue as well as being hard to press down. Other keys I routinely use for gaming are starting to have issues as well. The problem seems to be that the keys have a considerable wobble to them and if you don't hit them right in the center with a straight downward stroke they grind on the way down. That may put this in the realm of user error, but as a gamer I face situations too frantic to be concerning myself with my typing style. Would not recommend.

Horrible Ghosting

Pros: Nice looks and feels.

Cons: Horrible ghosting, can't even type consecutive upper case letters holding "Shift", you can imagine with a password, you have to type it slowly if it involves holding shift.
