The key caps appear to be poorly made, and several broke in my year of use, meaning I had to resort to using the spares provided in locations they didn't belong or scavenge the key caps from other keyboards that I own.
And to top it all off, now the accursed thing doesn't even work. Several keystrokes are often registered upon pressing each key just once, assuming a keystroke is registered at all. I'm fairly careful with the technology that I buy (since it often costs so much), and I have been utterly appalled at the level of quality in a keyboard worth over $200. I can't recommend buying this keyboard to anyone.
Generally speaking, Corsair has a fairly solid reputation in the gaming community so perhaps I just got unlucky. A Corsair K95 will be arriving in the mail soon to replace the K75, I hope to dear god I'm not making the same stupid mistake twice.
My previous keyboard was a HyperX RGB Cherry Blue (which I wasn't too happy with, both feel and quality wise.)
I also used a Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire Cherry MX Speed, but that proved way too sensitive and I kept on hitting key combinations that I couldn't disable.
This keyboard, though, hits the sweet spot for me.
Cherry Brown is the perfect tactile + resistance. Not too hard, but not too soft either.
Angle of the keyboard with the feet down is perfect.
The keys have a smooth, yet slightly soft feel to my fingers. They feel really pleasant to the touch. Something I've not noticed before in other keyboards.
Wrist rest is also comfortable.
This keyboard has reduced my fatigue and errors in typing. (I was struggling with the HyperX for some reason.) It's made a huge difference in my ability to get writing done.
While I also love the look and design, I've found that, in the end, what really matters is comfort and responsiveness. This keyboard just works for me and assuming it holds up, I will certainly get it again when the time comes.
There is some initial adjusting required because even though this has the numpad and direction keys on the right side, the keyboard itself is still narrower than most conventional keyboards. After a day of using it though I have naturally adapted and my fingers know where to go again.
The keyboard itself is beautiful as you can see from the photo I took from my mobile. I love the textured space bar and hand rest and the lighting makes the keys pop at night.
I do foresee these white keys getting browner and grubby, but hopefully they are easy to clean and i'll have to be pretty conscious about washing/wiping my hands before use.
4 out 5 stars only because I think it could have been a bit wider.
Why I bought the keyboard: Silent keys, great layout, full size keyboard, media keys, great RGB customisation.
Nothing has let me down so far.
Top international reviews
- So quiet. I have never owns a mechanical keyboard so quiet. It's as silent as a membrane keyboard.
- Low profile keys. I do a lot of typing at work, and always found the transition between my work keyboard and gaming keyboard awkward. Sooo many typos. This has the feel of a typical office keyboard with all the gaming benefits. Sooo many less typos.
- Media keys (no FN key). I am not a fan of the FN key. In fact, I loath it. No FN key on this baby. Plus it has a volume wheel which is a must. I don't want to fumble for the FN key if something ear-bleedingly loud comes over my PC.
- Look & Feel. Out of the box, this feels like a solid piece of equipment and it's actually quite nice looking. The pictures above don't do it justice.
- RGB backlighting. I've never really cared one way or another for the backlighting, but this one is fun. My keyboard is teal! Today.
- Solid keys. Without naming names *coughrazercough*, my last keyboard was such garbage it lasted only six months. The keys were wobbly and the stabilizers (metal bars under space bar, shift, backspace etc) kept popping out. I can tell the difference between the two right out of the box.
- Recessed back makes it easy to clean. This keyboard will never look like the inside of a toaster.
- Software is easy to use. The iCUE software is intuituve. Best part, unlike *coughrazercough* you don't need a usename and password just to adjust the settings on your own piece of equipment.
Honestly, nothing so far. I can usually find at least something to whinge about, but thus far my new K70 Rapidfire hasn't disappointed. I'll come back and edit if that changes.
This is a lovely keyboard, and I highly recommend it. If you're asking yourself whether or not you should buy it, my answer is do-it-do-it-do-it! It's my first Corsair product, and I will definitely consider buying from them again.
Since I am a touch typist, I did not need very clicky keyboards, hence i went for the switch which had a low enough actuation force. Cherry MX Red it was then.
The keyboard is very sturdy, and on the heavier side, which means that it sits snugly on the table and does not move around on it's own even when you type very fast ( gaming or when your code isn't working ).
The keypress is the typical Cherry MX Red feel, and it is something that cannot be described in words. One has to simply feel this. I can only say that for touch typists, it is a gift, and your fingers won't get tired even after typing on this keyboard for hours.
The keyboard is lit with Red lighting, with 3 varying levels of brightness. I did not need any fancy lighting hence I do not like / dislike this feature, but it is always good to have.
The only small gripe I have about this keyboard is that the Windows ( or Command key if you're using a Mac ) key is very small when compared to ALT and CTRL keys between which it sits. Sometimes, it gets missed especially if you're on a mac and the Command key is necessary for everything. They certainly do have the space to put in a bigger key for it.
Go for this keyboard. You'll not get a better variant at this price.
The Cherry MX Red keys are not as clicking when compared to other keys, but they are fine keys nonetheless; this factor is just a personal one.
The keyboard seems very easy to clean and vacuum under the keys.
The lighting and customization with the software that you can download is very sleek and satisfying.
The volume keys work fine, but the media keys needs 3rd party tinkering before you can get them to work with the apps you want.
Very satisfied with my new keyboard from Corsair!
In the '80s, I used the IBM Model F and Model M keyboards, which I loved, but my all-time favourite keyboard was made by a long-dead company called Wang. It was the best typists keyboard that I ever found - 'til now.
The brown switches have the same action and feel as my old beloved Wang keyboard. When I was shopping for a new keyboard, I was actually looking for blue switches, but I think I'm better off with the browns. The superb backlighting of this keyboard ensures that I can actually read the key legends. The iCUE software, once you figure it out, is great for developing new colour themes, but it does have a learning curve.
The K70 Mk.2 is an all around great keyboard. It is expensive, but even though I don't care about any of the advanced gaming features, for me it is worth every penny. Even if you're not a gamer, it comes highly recommended.
Los cambios que trae el K70 MK2 sobre el anterior yo los llamaría refinamientos más bien y están es todos los lugares correctos, solo pocas cosas evitan que este teclado tenga 5 estrellas de mi parte.
Comenzando con lo bueno, ahora el k70 mk2 es ofrecido en una gran variedad de interruptores Cherry MX, a diferencia de la primera generación que únicamente contaba con Cherry Red y Speed. En mi caso elegí Cherry MX Blues, pero ahora hay algo para cada tipo de usuario, lo cual se agradece bastante.
Las teclas multimedia son más altas con lo cual se sienten más coherentes con la altura de las otras teclas y su sensación táctil es buena.
El nuevo acomodo del botón de perfiles y brillo es un cambio bienvenido, pues ahora no es confuso para que sirve cada botón y la sección luce más completa.
El logo iluminado es un buen toque que añade más personalización al teclado, pero sin lucir de mal gusto en mi opinión.
La nueva textura de la rueda de volumen es genial y usarla es una gozada, pues esta muy bien definida la rotación y sientes totalmente el control en tus dedos, a diferencia de otros controles de volumen similares con los que con un poco de giro se sube mucho el volumen.
El acabado del teclado aunque similar al Mk1 o de primera generación, es mucho más suave al tacto en bordes y transiciones de materiales. Las partes plásticas que terminaban de manera filosa en el anterior ahora han sido redondeadas o suavizadas.
Los pies de goma del teclado ahora son enormes, con lo cual no hay juego en tu escritorio y seguramente durarán mucho más que los endebles pies de goma que tenia el MK1.
El acabado del aluminio cepillado de la placa superior del teclado ahora es más suave al tacto, lo cual ayuda a evitar marcas de dedos y hace que se sienta más premium.
Ahora lo negativo:
El cable sigue siendo bastante ancho y sigue sin ser removible, lo cual dificulta su transporte y acomodo en nuestro escritorio, puntos a mejorar para el MK3.
La hilera de teclas inferior usa una configuración no estándar lo cual dificulta su compatibilidad con teclas (keycaps) de terceros, en las fotos de mi reseña pueden ver como no es totalmente compatible con las teclas PBT de doble disparo de HyperX.
Hablando de teclas, de fabrica Corsair sigue utilizando una fuente muy "gamer" que por todos lados ha sido criticada, un aspecto que puede evitar que pase desapercibido en una oficina, por ejemplo.
iCue de Corsair, el software requerido para controlar la iluminación y macros del teclado, sigue siendo muy intensivo en recursos sólo funcionando en el fondo de Windows, además de que la interfaz es algo compleja la primera vez que lo usas.
Finalmente en un punto agridulce, aunque es decente el descanza muñecas que incluye Corsair, con una gran área de material antiderrapante texturizado, siento que se han quedado cortos viendo como otras marcas como Cooler Master, Razer y Logitech incluyen descansa muñecas magnéticos acolchonados de piel sintética.
Finalmente el precio. Por mi parte lo agarré en oferta a $2500 pesos, pero usualmente se encuentra sobre los 3 mil pesos y más de 4 mil la versión en color blanco, creo que un precio parejo de alrededor de 2700 pesos sería decente y estaría bien que los precios no fluctuacen tanto.
Muy buen teclado mecánico de tamaño completo, estética muy agradable y extras que valen la pena, pero tiene cosas a mejorar y ya no es la compra obvia que era hace unos años, Corsair debe dejar de dormirse en sus laureles.
My hands are heavy and fairly large it feels like this keyboard was design for kids or small and soft hands xD
By the picture and dimensions i thought the wrist rest is good (way too small) ... but nope ... had to spend another 20 $ for a gel one ( my prev keyboard had perfect wrist support but it was integrated and couldnt attach it on this one )
Overall I'm happy with my purchase , the RGB settings are nice . Just wish it was slightly less sensitive and slightly more large on the buttons side like the g510 or the mad catz strike 5 I had . It will take some time to get used to it . I did notice that most of the mechanical keyboard are same size so not much of choice for me.
The keyboard is heavy you can easily knock someone out with it . So its a great safety weapon !
Do I recommend it , depends what you looking for and your price range (I paid 175 CDN with taxes ) . Maybe on rebate its worth it .
For my taste i don't like how the keys are so tall, and noisy click, I like my Chicklet keys more Logitech K800, well Iam stuck with it, until i sell it.
Link Profile to Program:
Select your Profile and under Edit Profile CLICK on the Three (3)Dots and select your Program.
ProgramFiles (x86) = 64bit programs and ProgramFiles folder = 32bit programs
Select from a 32 or 64 bit program
Must be a .exe extension
C:\Program Files\SketchUp\SketchUp 2017\SketchUp.exe
When you Launch that Program or open an existing Project not only will your Lighting Profiles Activate but also any Macro keys as well, and can even assign Audio to your Macro keys.
And if you click any other program it will go to Defult or any other Profile that you have set for other programs.
YES you can have a Program or even the File will Automatically Activate that Profile. Awsome
only con i have had is the back feet that pop out are a bit small wish they were a bit bigger, and my space bar is not quiet like every other key is lol. i do not understand the brightness button as there is a very small level of dimming to it, which sucks but if your dimming it.. why did you rgb to begin with? lol
i could have gotten razer or steelseries, but the scroll volume and low profile had me sold on this one lol also it came the same day i ordered it, and i mean who wouldn't be happy with that???
icue software works well despite all the bad reviews iv heard about it, overall its great and i'm extremely happy.
Based on reviews I guess that I just got a bad keyboard. The product box was in excellent condition, and the seals were intact. Must have just been mishandled at the factory when being packaged.
