Prettier, but a quality DOWNGRADE:: A typists perspective who loved the original For some background, while I do use the keyboard for some gaming (mostly FPS) I am primarily a typist that transcribes hours upon hours of audio for work. I've owned the original in blue switches, red LED for some time, but wanted an upgrade to quieter switches to hear audio better and get some nice rgb.It seems that both Cherry and Corsair have tried to cut corners in places that are less likely to be immediately noticed by customers. This will still very much yield a lesser quality, and more likely to fail over time product.-Compared to the original K70, the overall quality of this product is less. The first and most glaring thing I noticed are the stabilizers for larger keys (space, 0, shift, etc) are far looser/poorly fit on the mk2. The black retention pieces (see video) have SO much slop compared to the original. I can only really get any movement on the original if I really force it. This creates not just extra movement on the keys, but it also makes it noisey. Often times, this is part of what gives people that notorious spacebar rattle. As pieces wear over time this will only get worse. Especially for a transcriber, I have several special functions that rely on shift and combinations of shift with other keys. The extra slop is noticeable compared to the first version and I can hear it almost as loud as blue switches through headphones when transcribing audio. Already I have an awful amount of audible rattle on my backspace key, while my original is rock solid.-A second thing I've noticed is how they've relaxed the tolerances on the key caps and switch stems is. On the original version, it was very difficult to remove the key caps from the switches unless you had a wire puller. On the "updated" mk2, they pop off so easily and can be put back on with so little finger pressure, I almost didn't believe I had them on. This is not a good thing: it will make the caps more susceptible to wear that will create more slop, and overall just does not convey quality. If you've ever had a spacebar that had a problem where overtime if you hit one side of the key and the other side would pop up and stay there, this is why: keycaps/stems with poor tolerances.-Third, the switches themselves have more play in them than the original k70. It created a noticeable amount more key wobble.Overall, after a year and hundreds upon hundreds of hard typing and key smashing when raging, my original k70 is still a higher quality product than the new mk2. The tighter tolerances on the original almost make it feel like a newer product than the mk2 I got in the mail literally today. The overall typing experience on the mk2 is just sloppier and it does not inspire confidence in the long run. Some upgrades are admittedly awesome. The clear switches really enhance the lighting, the on-board profile storage is fantastic. HOWEVER, looking at it in terms of the functionality this piece of hardware is required/designed to perform, (TYPING) they clearly decided to throw away some quality in favor of some pretty bells and whistles. If I had never experienced another high end keyboard, specifically the predecessor, I may have given this a higher rating, but in lieu of knowing what's being lost, I can't.At some level, it's almost insulting that they're trying to pass this off as an "upgrade" when they've reduced the essential functions of their original to something of lesser quality. 2Love it. I owned a original K70 with red switches for 5 years. I loved it, but decided to take it to work for typing so for home I purchased a K99. I later ended up selling that K70 due to workplace change. The K95 had speed switches and they were just too shallow and easy to press. I had too many fat-finger incidents and my typing was hampered. I like the brown switches more than the reds. They can be a little loud but I am fine with that. They are pleasure to type on. To any one considering the K95 or speed switches, please get this instead. It smashes the speed switches both in feeling and functionality. 5Third Time's a Charm I liked this model of keyboard more than most other models I found in a similar price range. Cherry Brown switches, wrist-rest, very pose-able, non-obnoxious backlighting. The audio controls are a plus, too. So why did I give it three stars?The first time I received this keyboard it came with an [Enter] and [P] key which would spit out a string of random keys. The [Enter] keystring would include [F12], which is incredibly annoying and unacceptable for a 100+ USD device. I sent it back for a new keyboard of the same make.The second time I received this keyboard, the box lid was torn, the seals were open, and the keyboard was packaged in such a way that I believe it was previously unboxed and used. Some of the wrist-rest clips were broken off. I did not even try to plug it in and test it. I sent it back for a new keyboard of the same make.The third time I received this keyboard, it was mint-condition new. I am typing on it now, and I love it (just as I expected I would). I bought the Cherry MX Brown Red LED version.Amazon has been very quick to deliver my replacements. I don't know whether fulfillment services are wonky around New Year's, or if Corsair sent a bad batch of keyboards to Amazon, or maybe both given the disparately bad state of my two now-returned models. The ordeal was very frustrating, but I am glad I chose the product in the end. 3Great keyboard! I collect keyboards and mice as a hobby, and I gotta say, this is one durable keyboard. I bought this back in May 2017 to replace a broken Razer Blackwidow Chroma, and this thing is still kicking! Its dirty, but it works! With that said, this keyboard gives you quite a bit of features for the price. However I've noticed the Cherry MX Brown version (The one I have here) is around $120 just for the red LED version, which I think is overpriced.Moving on, the features you get with this keyboard are amazing. You get full N-Key rollover with 100% anti-ghosting, extra keycaps, keycap puller, BIOS/polling rate switch, media keys, wrist rest, Cherry MX switches and much more. My favorite features are the USB pass through which is really handy. And the media keys, very useful for when I'm in iTunes and have to change the volume quickly.The key switches are 100% genuine Cherry MX switches. You can choose from: Cherry MX Blue, Brown, Red or Speed. No silent switches available on this one. If you want the MX Silent switch, you must get one of the Strafe models or the K70 RGB MK.2. The switch implementation is pretty good, not as good as Cooler Master but its still very solid. Unfortunately, the Cherry style stabilizers aren't implemented very well AT ALL. They feel mushy and not very tactile. Cooler Master uses the same stabilizers and they were able to get it as smooth as a Costar stabilizer, so that is something Corsair can improve on.The lighting is very limited as this is the red LED version, but I like the color so it doesn't bother me. You do have some preset lighting effects to choose from in the software or you can even create your own, though since its just the color red I wouldn't really bother with it.This keyboard can be used with Corsair's iCue software. In this software you can create lighting effects, create profiles and even reprogram every single button! But if you don't care to reprogram keys or make profiles I wouldn't recommend the software as like I said the lighting is limited.So if you want a good no thrills mechanical keyboard, I would highly recommend this! 5A pleasure to use! This is my first mechanical keyboard since the 80s and I love it. I did not realize how much I was missing out on using membrane keyboards all this time!The Brown switches are exactly what I wanted--slightly tactile and not super clacky. The construction of this keyboard is top notch. I love the alluminum body and the open sides mean that debris is less likely to build up under the keys. I didn't think I would use the volume wheel as much as I do but it is excellent. The long cord covered in nylon weave is perfect.The only thing I regrew about this is the single color (red) rather than RGB lighting, but that is not a failing of this product and for the price I doubt you'll find a better keyboard.Two design issues I have:One: I type with the keyboard on my lap. With the cheap membrane keyboards I had been using this was not an issue--they are light and not hard to keep in place. But this keyboard is HEFTY since the body is aluminum and the bottom is smooth, so it slips off my legs easy. Easy enough to remedy by attaching thin rubber to the bottom.Two: I really wish these keyboards with extra USB ports on them would function as a hub rather than an extension. This means there's more cable, and two USB connectors on the end of it. I do like having my wireless mouse dongle on the keyboard and near my mouse. 5Must have for PC Gamers Definitely one of the best mechanical gaming keyboards around from a great pc gaming hardware/accessory company. I am giving it 5 stars overall but I do a couple of cons about it. Don't worry, they are just little things that can be improved upon eventually.The wrist support pad that comes with it is just awful, at least in my opinion. I suffer from a number of things so something that cost $100 should come with a better wrist support instead of hard plastic at a weird angle. Again this is just my opinion and this could be nothing for a lot of users. I already had a memory foam padded wrist support for keyboard use. I just removed the one that comes with it and use my own.The cost of RGBs. Now I originally wanted the K70 RGB version but it is pretty pricey. The price difference from RGBs to just the standard red LED is pretty steep for just a color difference and I think the switches are slightly downgraded but you can always select the correct switch type if needed. Now this is nothing for a lot of people as well but I do hope that RGB versions of this model become less costly instead of how they are now.Other than those two small things. This keyboard is 100% worth the cost. Great construction, very durable, feels very nice. Has pass thru for your USB plug in. Free software to customize macros, keybindings, performance, etc. I would definitely recommend this to any avid PC gamer. Another thing to make this even better if you would like or have a need for it. Add O-Rings to dampen sound of clicks and even provide some more comfort of the keystrokes. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MSMB96R/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 5Not just for gamers, writers should have one too!! So I do play games but I am also a writer and multimedia professional.I bought this because I was sick of typing on the new, super silent, flat and unresponsive keyboards.I've dropped about $300 on keyboards in the last couple years just trying to get something that didn't infuriate me while I typed.A while back my ex-had complained that I typed really loud so I got rid of what used to be my favorite keyboard.Hence the deluge of crappy silent keyboards.Well, she's gone and this clickity clackity beauty is hands down my new favorite keyboard for writing.It may be my favorite keyboard of all time.When I was a kid (early 80's) I had an old ribbon style typewriter that I loved, I eventually upgraded to a word processor and after that a PC. When I got my first PC the keyboards were basically mechanical and they felt nice to type on.This feels like a cross between an old Typewriter and an old PC keyboard.The keys are lightweight but they click audibly and there is a nice feel to each depression.Everything feels quick and responsive. To top it off, the keys are backlit with adjustable light levels so typing in the dark is not an issue.The keyboard base is made of aluminum and the keys are made of plastic.they are concaved and the keyboard has a slight incline, even without the feet down.After a little research, I got the brown switches since it seemed to have a combination of what I like in a keyboard; quick, responsive keys and a nice audible click with tactile feedback.I haven't had it for long so I can't speak to it's durability or ease of cleaning but i do know that what I primarily look for is feel and ease of use. This is a winner.the rolling audio wheel is a really nice touch as well.Great buy. 5It's about what you'd expect for the price If you go on r/MechanicalKeyboards you'll see corsair keyboards getting a lot of flack for being overpriced for for their quality but honestly I don't really see it, I think the quality is good enough, it's no tank but for something that will just sit on your desk the whole time it really doesn't need to be. The mk.2 seems to be sturdy enough, the top is a fairly thick piece of aluminum, about as thick as I would expect a keyboard faceplate to be at least, and the whole thing is fairly ridged overall. The bottom of made of plastic and I see people complain that it's too thin but if you're not using your keyboard to bludgeon your enemies then it should hold up just finr. My biggest gripe with this keyboard are the keycaps, they're light, thin and laser ablated so they're likely to wear over time. Corsair offers a doubleshot version of these same keycaps, but they're another $50 so if you're set on getting those then this starts to become a nearly $200 keyboard. That being said, I think that if quality had to be sacrificed somewhere to meet this price point then the keycaps are the most logical option as they're the only part of the keyboard you can easily modify yourself if you want and I really don't see them as a huge problem until they actually start to wear. This keyboard comes with another set of WASD and QERF keys with a textured surface that won't wear so if you mostly use those it's probably not a huge issue. I suppose only time will tell how bad these keys wear.I was looking for several things in a keyboard, I wanted an aluminum top plate, a minimal, clean look, RGB and I wanted it to be mechanical and this keyboard meets all those things.I really like the brushed aluminum, it doesn't take on finger prints, it looks really good and it adds some good heft so full points there. The switches protrude out of the faceplate so there is nowhere for dirt and dust to fall in to and get trapped, this makes it really easy to clean with one of those compressed air cans so if you like to keep things clean then that is a huge plus. This is a really good looking keyboard, it doesn't overdo it by trying to look all gamery and wouldn't look out of place in an office or anything (with the RGB off at least), though you can see the pictures for yourself so whether you like how it looks is really up to you.The RGB is fully customizable on a per key basis but if you want all the fancy effects then you always need to have the corsair iCUE software running in the background which I'm not a huge fan of. You can save three RGB profiles onto the keyboards internal memory but the effects are a bit more limited if you chose to rely only on that. You can still set each key to any color you want and you can use some effects, but the effects can't be as elaborate as if you have the software running in the background. This isn't a huge problem for me because I don't really want much more than static back lighting anyway but its something you should be aware of. I guess each key can be readdressed to do whatever you want and you can make macros, but this particular model doesn't have any dedicated macro keys. These aren't really features that I've needed to use and so I don't particularly care about them.I got the version with the cherry mx brown switches because up to now I've been using a keyboard with blue clones and I wanted to try something different. I miss the clickyness of the blues but I like the feel of the browns well enough, I only wish that they were more tactile because the tactile bump isn't super prominent and isn't very sharp. The browns are a lot less noisy that blues but they're still nowhere near silent. Most of the sound just comes from the keys bottoming out so it could be made just a little more silent with some o-rings but I don't like the feel of the o-rings as much. I considered returning this key board and getting the version with the blue switches for a little while but I've grown to like the brown switches, but it's all subjective. A lot of hard core mech keyboard enthusiasts don't really like browns but I don't have much experience with other switches so I can't say too much about that.The dedicated media controls are nice to have I suppose, but I only ever find myself using the volume knob. The wrist rest is just solid plastic but it has a soft texture and is definitely a plus, I haven't used one up to now but I don't think I could go without one in the future as it makes typing so much more comfortable. The USB passthrough is a nice feature, I use it for my wireless mouse dongle so that it's closer and the connection is more reliable but I imagine that it would be really convenient for a wired mouse as well, there are some routing channels on the bottom of the keyboard for the wire to keep things tidy if you do use a wired mouse . I don't think the passthrough wouldn't be ideal for something that you would remove and insert frequently because it's on the back of the keyboard which makes it awkward to get to in my opinion. The USB cable is braided and really thick which gives it a pretty premium feel. It's also super long so you shouldn't have much trouble getting it to where you need it to go. It's pretty ridged so if you move the keyboard around a lot on your desk that might be a bit of a problem.This keyboard really needs to be packaged better, Amazon just ships it in the box that the keyboard comes in and there isn't any foam or anything in that box so the only thing between the top of the keyboard and the boxes that will inevitably be dropped or stacked on top of it during shipping is a piece of cardboard. Because of this, my keyboard came with some of the keys knocked out both times, I replaced my first one because I thought it came broken. The first one's volume wheel was really loose compared to the second one I received, I don't know if that was a manufacturing defect or from rough treatment during shipping but it would be nice if Amazon just shipped it in another box with some proper packing material. 5Good keyboard, but so much for "quiet" I was getting really frustrated with my old membrane keyboard. Junk getting under the keys and taking multiple key presses to get a key to be recognized. Tried to clean out the junk, but it just moved the problem to other keys. So, I finally decided to try a mechanical keyboard. I got this one based on the good reviews and its features. While not a gamer, I figured that if it can hold up to the abuse of gamers, then it could handle anything I could do to it.There are many things that I like about this keyboard:+ The brushed aluminum frame. It gives it a solid look and feel and nice aesthetic.+ It is a breeze to clean. No crumbs are going to be getting stuck under these keys. If something does manage to get stuck under there, the included key puller makes it easy to pop off the key.+ The volume roller and mute button are so convenient.+ The USB pass-through port is also convenient. I don't have to get up out of my chair, like I've had to do to use the USB ports on my mid-tower case.+ The RGB effects are great.I do have some disappointments with this keyboard:- The supposedly quiet Cherry MX Brown keys. They are way louder than I expected. My officemate complained at how much noisier my new keyboard was. I ended up getting some Rosewill clear o-rings to dampen the noise. They have quieted the keys enough to make them tolerable.- The wrist rest is pretty hard. I often rest my wrists on the rest (imagine that). So much so, that I've plum worn out areas of my old wrist rest. I had to ditch the wrist rest and got a memory foam one. I'll probably wear that one out eventually, but it is much more comfortable than the hard plastic rest.- An oddity with the keyboard is that characters that require you to press the Shift key are on the bottom of the key, not the top, like I am used to. I guess that was a design decision to get the primary characters for each key to display in line with the letter keys. That will take a bit of getting used to. 4Excellent Keyboard Hello, I recommend this keyboard. Its built really well, RGB is excellent especially with the Icue software options. Provided wrist rest is really comfortable, feels nice for just being plastic. Has replacement caps for your gaming keys with extra groves, I use and like them. The extra caps are slanted in around S so its actually useful for me. I like the brown keys, give you a little feedback when they activate the key stroke but its not much, wont interfere with any action. Media controls are nice and useful especially the volume bar. One thing I dont like is that yes the keyboard has an extra USB input for a mouse BUT you do need to use the 2 output cables from the keyboard into the computer if you intend to use that extra KB USB slot. So its not saving you a connection spot (I thought you could have the mouse go into the KB and then just 1 USB into ur computer or in my case a laptop, not the case). So you may want to get a USB hub to manage your devices with this. (I have 2 anyways). I just dont see how the extra USB input helps. Also I use a Corsair Glaive mouse (also excellent, so smooth) and Im disappointed the RGB doesnt stream together with both Corsair devices using Icue software, to take advantage of the USB input on KB, maybe Im missing something there. But the quality and ease of use make up for the 2 shortfalls in my eyes. I use the KB for gaming everyday/night for a few months without any issues. 5

Add O-Rings to dampen sound of clicks and even provide some more comfort of the keystrokes. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MSMB96R/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 5Not just for gamers, writers should have one too!! So I do play games but I am also a writer and multimedia professional.I bought this because I was sick of typing on the new, super silent, flat and unresponsive keyboards.I've dropped about $300 on keyboards in the last couple years just trying to get something that didn't infuriate me while I typed.A while back my ex-had complained that I typed really loud so I got rid of what used to be my favorite keyboard.Hence the deluge of crappy silent keyboards.Well, she's gone and this clickity clackity beauty is hands down my new favorite keyboard for writing.It may be my favorite keyboard of all time.When I was a kid (early 80's) I had an old ribbon style typewriter that I loved, I eventually upgraded to a word processor and after that a PC. When I got my first PC the keyboards were basically mechanical and they felt nice to type on.This feels like a cross between an old Typewriter and an old PC keyboard.The keys are lightweight but they click audibly and there is a nice feel to each depression.Everything feels quick and responsive. To top it off, the keys are backlit with adjustable light levels so typing in the dark is not an issue.The keyboard base is made of aluminum and the keys are made of plastic.they are concaved and the keyboard has a slight incline, even without the feet down.After a little research, I got the brown switches since it seemed to have a combination of what I like in a keyboard; quick, responsive keys and a nice audible click with tactile feedback.I haven't had it for long so I can't speak to it's durability or ease of cleaning but i do know that what I primarily look for is feel and ease of use. This is a winner.the rolling audio wheel is a really nice touch as well.Great buy. 5It's about what you'd expect for the price If you go on r/MechanicalKeyboards you'll see corsair keyboards getting a lot of flack for being overpriced for for their quality but honestly I don't really see it, I think the quality is good enough, it's no tank but for something that will just sit on your desk the whole time it really doesn't need to be. The mk.2 seems to be sturdy enough, the top is a fairly thick piece of aluminum, about as thick as I would expect a keyboard faceplate to be at least, and the whole thing is fairly ridged overall. The bottom of made of plastic and I see people complain that it's too thin but if you're not using your keyboard to bludgeon your enemies then it should hold up just finr. My biggest gripe with this keyboard are the keycaps, they're light, thin and laser ablated so they're likely to wear over time. Corsair offers a doubleshot version of these same keycaps, but they're another $50 so if you're set on getting those then this starts to become a nearly $200 keyboard. That being said, I think that if quality had to be sacrificed somewhere to meet this price point then the keycaps are the most logical option as they're the only part of the keyboard you can easily modify yourself if you want and I really don't see them as a huge problem until they actually start to wear. This keyboard comes with another set of WASD and QERF keys with a textured surface that won't wear so if you mostly use those it's probably not a huge issue. I suppose only time will tell how bad these keys wear.I was looking for several things in a keyboard, I wanted an aluminum top plate, a minimal, clean look, RGB and I wanted it to be mechanical and this keyboard meets all those things.I really like the brushed aluminum, it doesn't take on finger prints, it looks really good and it adds some good heft so full points there. The switches protrude out of the faceplate so there is nowhere for dirt and dust to fall in to and get trapped, this makes it really easy to clean with one of those compressed air cans so if you like to keep things clean then that is a huge plus. This is a really good looking keyboard, it doesn't overdo it by trying to look all gamery and wouldn't look out of place in an office or anything (with the RGB off at least), though you can see the pictures for yourself so whether you like how it looks is really up to you.The RGB is fully customizable on a per key basis but if you want all the fancy effects then you always need to have the corsair iCUE software running in the background which I'm not a huge fan of. You can save three RGB profiles onto the keyboards internal memory but the effects are a bit more limited if you chose to rely only on that. You can still set each key to any color you want and you can use some effects, but the effects can't be as elaborate as if you have the software running in the background. This isn't a huge problem for me because I don't really want much more than static back lighting anyway but its something you should be aware of. I guess each key can be readdressed to do whatever you want and you can make macros, but this particular model doesn't have any dedicated macro keys. These aren't really features that I've needed to use and so I don't particularly care about them.I got the version with the cherry mx brown switches because up to now I've been using a keyboard with blue clones and I wanted to try something different. I miss the clickyness of the blues but I like the feel of the browns well enough, I only wish that they were more tactile because the tactile bump isn't super prominent and isn't very sharp. The browns are a lot less noisy that blues but they're still nowhere near silent. Most of the sound just comes from the keys bottoming out so it could be made just a little more silent with some o-rings but I don't like the feel of the o-rings as much. I considered returning this key board and getting the version with the blue switches for a little while but I've grown to like the brown switches, but it's all subjective. A lot of hard core mech keyboard enthusiasts don't really like browns but I don't have much experience with other switches so I can't say too much about that.The dedicated media controls are nice to have I suppose, but I only ever find myself using the volume knob. The wrist rest is just solid plastic but it has a soft texture and is definitely a plus, I haven't used one up to now but I don't think I could go without one in the future as it makes typing so much more comfortable. The USB passthrough is a nice feature, I use it for my wireless mouse dongle so that it's closer and the connection is more reliable but I imagine that it would be really convenient for a wired mouse as well, there are some routing channels on the bottom of the keyboard for the wire to keep things tidy if you do use a wired mouse . I don't think the passthrough wouldn't be ideal for something that you would remove and insert frequently because it's on the back of the keyboard which makes it awkward to get to in my opinion. The USB cable is braided and really thick which gives it a pretty premium feel. It's also super long so you shouldn't have much trouble getting it to where you need it to go. It's pretty ridged so if you move the keyboard around a lot on your desk that might be a bit of a problem.This keyboard really needs to be packaged better, Amazon just ships it in the box that the keyboard comes in and there isn't any foam or anything in that box so the only thing between the top of the keyboard and the boxes that will inevitably be dropped or stacked on top of it during shipping is a piece of cardboard. Because of this, my keyboard came with some of the keys knocked out both times, I replaced my first one because I thought it came broken. The first one's volume wheel was really loose compared to the second one I received, I don't know if that was a manufacturing defect or from rough treatment during shipping but it would be nice if Amazon just shipped it in another box with some proper packing material. 5Good keyboard, but so much for "quiet" I was getting really frustrated with my old membrane keyboard. Junk getting under the keys and taking multiple key presses to get a key to be recognized. Tried to clean out the junk, but it just moved the problem to other keys. So, I finally decided to try a mechanical keyboard. I got this one based on the good reviews and its features. While not a gamer, I figured that if it can hold up to the abuse of gamers, then it could handle anything I could do to it.There are many things that I like about this keyboard:+ The brushed aluminum frame. It gives it a solid look and feel and nice aesthetic.+ It is a breeze to clean. No crumbs are going to be getting stuck under these keys. If something does manage to get stuck under there, the included key puller makes it easy to pop off the key.+ The volume roller and mute button are so convenient.+ The USB pass-through port is also convenient. I don't have to get up out of my chair, like I've had to do to use the USB ports on my mid-tower case.+ The RGB effects are great.I do have some disappointments with this keyboard:- The supposedly quiet Cherry MX Brown keys. They are way louder than I expected. My officemate complained at how much noisier my new keyboard was. I ended up getting some Rosewill clear o-rings to dampen the noise. They have quieted the keys enough to make them tolerable.- The wrist rest is pretty hard. I often rest my wrists on the rest (imagine that). So much so, that I've plum worn out areas of my old wrist rest. I had to ditch the wrist rest and got a memory foam one. I'll probably wear that one out eventually, but it is much more comfortable than the hard plastic rest.- An oddity with the keyboard is that characters that require you to press the Shift key are on the bottom of the key, not the top, like I am used to. I guess that was a design decision to get the primary characters for each key to display in line with the letter keys. That will take a bit of getting used to. 4Excellent Keyboard Hello, I recommend this keyboard. Its built really well, RGB is excellent especially with the Icue software options. Provided wrist rest is really comfortable, feels nice for just being plastic. Has replacement caps for your gaming keys with extra groves, I use and like them. The extra caps are slanted in around S so its actually useful for me. I like the brown keys, give you a little feedback when they activate the key stroke but its not much, wont interfere with any action. Media controls are nice and useful especially the volume bar. One thing I dont like is that yes the keyboard has an extra USB input for a mouse BUT you do need to use the 2 output cables from the keyboard into the computer if you intend to use that extra KB USB slot. So its not saving you a connection spot (I thought you could have the mouse go into the KB and then just 1 USB into ur computer or in my case a laptop, not the case). So you may want to get a USB hub to manage your devices with this. (I have 2 anyways). I just dont see how the extra USB input helps. Also I use a Corsair Glaive mouse (also excellent, so smooth) and Im disappointed the RGB doesnt stream together with both Corsair devices using Icue software, to take advantage of the USB input on KB, maybe Im missing something there. But the quality and ease of use make up for the 2 shortfalls in my eyes. I use the KB for gaming everyday/night for a few months without any issues. 5
