Great keyboard.

Pros: Looks great
Heavy and well built
Doesn't slide around the desk unless I want it to
Great lighting options

Cons: -Took a bit of getting used to the sound of the key clicks
-I feel the keys are a little bit too sensitive. The slightest touch and it registers. This may end up being a pro because if I learn to hit the key softer, it will still respond and will also be quieter.

Overall Review: Would buy again

Corsair K68 is it any good ?

Pros: Small/compact
Feels pretty good at the touch.
Back lighting is bright compared to my older G150 from Logitech
Feels very responsive.

Cons: Might be a little noisy
Rather small for my hands, requires a small "learning curve" to get used to the keyboard's size
Palm rest is very small and uncomfortable, if you're like me and require a beefier palm rest, this is gonna be an issue.

Overall Review: Keyboard is really heavy (First mechanical keyboard I've ever bought ... I didn't think it was gonna this heavy ? Again, comparing to my old membrane G510, it's definitely heavier)

If you're on a tight budget and you don't care much about RGB, this keyboard could be for you, for less or about 100$ CAD, this keyboard seems to be the best "Bang for your buck" option. It feels rather good at the touch and at the exception of the palm rest, I totally recommend it. I suppose you could always buy a 3rd party palm rest but I kinda wish Corsair actually made one that was suitable for such a nice keyboard.

I'm giving the K68 4 eggs ouit of 5 due to the fact it doesn't have a suitable palm rest ... it's more of an extension than a palm rest itself, not sure who designed this mess but that personne probably has really, really small hands.

Infuriated! Done with Corsair keyboards

Pros: None, absolutely none.

Cons: This is the 3rd mechanical keyboard I bught made by Corsair and YET AGAIN this keybaard has sever mechanical issues after the time I can return it. As aalways keys either double or triple press OR do not input at all. Thankfully I bought their bottom of the line keyboard this time so when I smash the F out of it I'll not regret, aas much, my stupidity for buying a keyboard made by Crsair.

Note: I build computers and use mostly coorsair parts. Top notch, reliable, spent thousands on parts from them for my rigs. Their keyboards cccan go burn in hell though! Absolute garbage! Almost $350 total lost due to their craap cherry MX keys.

Well this one is now off to the garaage to be smashed into pieces.

Overall Review: I do highly recommend their PSU's, RAM and water coolers.

3/ 5

Pros: Cherry MX red switches

Cons: The Corsair Utility Engine is just bad... like really buggy and will automatically set it to a wave light function. To fix the issue you have to make a custom setting and manually click each key on the screen image.

Overall Review: Will satisfy you if you are looking for a mechanical keyboard. Don't settle on this one unless it is a steal.

Solid Keyboard

Pros: -Cherry MX Red
-Wrist rest
-I'm already using CUE for headset
-Price is good for a full mechanical board
-Is toddler-proof* (*untested)

Cons: -Frame isn't the brushed aluminum :(

Overall Review: I'm coming from a K65 short board. There was some previous liquid damage there that my toddler was able to make worse, so the K68 was a good jump without breaking the bank.

If you've been using MX Red switches, the silicone well-covers around the switches will feel different at first. It adds the slightest resistance to key presses, but after an afternoon of use I adjusted and have no problems with the feel now.

Nice keys, Frustrating Keyboard

Pros: Cherry keys feel great. The backlighting is nice if you like red and has adjustable brightness. The keyboard is compact but still has a numberpad and a good weight so it doesn't slide around. A good deal for the price.

Cons: The bottoms of the keys stick up above the surface of the keyboard and I find myself making tons of typos I don't make on my Razer at work.

Also the spacebar has a weird, ugly texture that I do not care for.

Overall Review: If you don't mind the cons then this is a great keyboard at a good price. But if you're at all like me I would look for something a little different. Corsair makes good stuff but this particular keyboard doesn't fit my tastes.

Corsair K68 - a decent cheap alternative to most highend "gaming" keyboards

Pros: Cherry MX Red key switches.

LED back-lighting.

Onboard volume control. Limited media control.

Dust, spill, and fingerprint resistant.

Is a good price compared to some other gaming mechanical keyboards.

Cons: No key removal tool included.

Only red lighting. No customization for LEDs.

Does not fit the Corsair LAPDOG.

Overall Review: Is roughly the same design as other Corsair K series I've used, which is a good thing. But, this model has a slightly larger base than my current K70 LUX and takes up ~1" more space width-wise on my tray. This also prevents it from seating into the Corsair LAPDOG.

The Cherry keys work and feel as expected; very smooth and very responsive. I could never go back to generic key sets after 10 years or so of only purchasing mechanical Cherry. They feel much smoother and are much more accurate when typing.

This is one of Corsair's cheapest gaming keyboards so you shouldn't expect all the bells and whistles like custom LED, FPS key kits, or the other "luxuries" that come with the nicer models.

The Corsair CUE software is not very intuitive. When I first started with my Corsair Vengeance M95 mouse years ago it was fairly easy to setup the DPS and lighting but the "updates" they've made have made it much more difficult to create and customize specific profiles. I have my K70 LUX and my Void 7.1 setup nicely but it took a few attempts and ultimately participating in some Corsair user forums to get all the options down.
