I simply, had no time, to post all these problems, or contact "the support", so far, but I will use this text, to send them, an email, after this. The good things, about the keyboard, is that you have ICUE, programable lights, for this keyboard, and I use, just blue light to light up the keys, so I can see better, what I am typing. It also, has a mute button, on the keyboard, but it does not, always, work. It, has a key-lock, that locks windows-activate-button, so the game, does not minimise, on you, if you accidentally, press the win button, very useful for CNC ZH, since, the sound cuts out, if you, do that. It has a light, that tells you, if you caps lock key, is on, or not, a Very Useful (and automatic) option.
I would, still suggest, if you have money, for you, to buy this keyboard, because these options, are extremely important, if you use computer, every day, and there is still a possibility, of the issues being fixed, once I contact the tech support...So...God bless, and, take care, of, yourself, and, more, importantly, each, other.

Backlighting is pretty stock standard for an RGB keyboard. Utilises iCUE software for Corsair products, which is used to control the type of backlighting and the speed of transition between colours. I haven’t messed around with this to much yet, but there are something like 8 different presets with the software, and you can change the speed from quite slow to very fast.
The keyboard being mechanical is louder than a standard keyboard (your cheap $20 dell keyboards for example), however being the MX Cherry type of mechanical keyboard it is quieter than other MX options available.
Great keyboard with good build quality, but it comes with a hefty price tag.
My suggestion - buy it on sale.
Note- I paid $215 in November 2018

Let me start this review by saying this is the best looking RGB keyboard I have ever used, with the best implementation of RGB (the light bar truly is nice). However, I believe in functionality as well, which is where this keyboard does abysmally.
I am coming from a Logitech G710+, so take this into account: it's not the best, as I'm aware it's still just a "gamer board" and is just cheaply made to maximize profit margins. I'm aware it doesn't hold a candle to enthusiast keyboards, such as the Ducky line, etc.
Let me get into the pros of this keyboard: the RGB. That's it. The corsair software (iCUE) is quite customizable, with many different RGB profiles to use. However, it doesn't have in-game effects the way razer does with their SDK integration with games like Overwatch and Rocket League. Thankfully, there are solutions: RETC, and better yet, Aurora, can be used to inject and emulate said SDK functionality, so your Overwatch abilities affect their respective keys when on cooldown, and with Aurora you can even mirror the effects of, say, E to the entire numpad, so it's more visible when it's on cooldown.
Now for the cons: everything else. The build quality, the keycaps, the media keys, the volume roller, the feet.
This keyboard is aluminum plated, so it feels premium, but it somehow manages to be a lot lighter than my all-plastic Logitech G710+.
The feet fold in sideways toward the center of the keyboard, meaning you CANNOT slide the keyboard sideways, otherwise one of the feet will naturally collapse as that's how they're designed to close. They should have been made to collapse toward the front of the keyboard, which is how my G710+ is.
The keycaps are HORRENDOUS!!! If you get this keyboard, it is imperative that you also get a good set of keycaps. However, at the price point of this keyboard ($250), it is reasonable to expect the keycaps won't be absolute garbage. But alas, such is the case! Contrary to the product title saying "Tactile and Quiet," The Cherry Mx Brown version of this keyboard is in fact NOT quiet in the slightest. Sure, the switches don't click, but the keycaps clack so loudly that even if the keyboard used Blues, you still probably wouldn't be able to hear them click on top of the incessant loud keycaps bottoming out. O-rings are REQUIRED, and unlike the G710+, this does not come with them. Again, at this price point, it is reasonable to expect it comes with something small like this.
The media keys are flimsy and mushy. They feel very cheap and fragile. I’ve nothing good to say about them. I used AutoHotKey to make the PauseBreak key to act as Play/Pause so I wouldn’t have to use this keyboard’s media keys.
The volume roller. Oh, the volume roller! This keyboard has a really nice volume roller, which is quite satisfying to use. However, every time I used it, I ran the risk of my keyboard completely going unresponsive! I’ve been able to reproduce this half a dozen times consecutively on clean boots. Whenever it’s being used, there’s a chance for it to start making the volume go in the direction it was going (let’s say up) and there is NOTHING you can do to make it stop. You can use windows volume mixer and drag the slider back down, but it will just continue going back up. Luckily for me I was able to plug in my G710+ and use its volume wheel to go up, then back down to cancel the volume increasing. However, even still, the K95 would remain completely unresponsive. None of its keys or volume wheel would work until you reboot your computer.
Now, imagine you’re playing a competitive game and you decide to change the volume. Having your keyboard lock up like this, forcing you to restart, would result in being penalized for leaving the match, risking a ban on your account. This is completely unacceptable, especially for a $250 keyboard! What are you even paying for at this point?
Finally, small nitpick: the light bar. It sounds great as a concept, but just once you see its reflection in your monitor you’ll instantly want to turn it off (which thankfully, you can). So what’s the point of a light bar then? It gets in the way. Unless you have a wall mounted monitor that’s so high you won’t see the reflection of the lightbar, there’s no good reason to use it.
I cannot recommend this keyboard to anyone, even at a discount. There's no reason to have to put up with a keyboard which can lock up for no reason. Look for a better product. I hear the CoolerMaster MasterKeys Pro L is the best quality "gamer board." I will definitely be looking into that or even a non-gamer board.
-Enter key does not work.
-One side of the keyboard lift pegs is just gone.
-The rubber on the wrist rest is peeling off.
-Keyboard is obviously used, debris between keys, signs of a spill.
This is just after looking over it for the first time, who knows what else.
I recommend to never do a warehouse deal on a keyboard.
