Excellent keyboard. I have the K65 RGB version which is without the number pad. Love it (no burnt out LED's either and i've bought it when i came out so last year).

I have the k70 RGB (with Cherry MX Reds) and love it.

Here's a youtube channel for someone who has made some excellent light profiles for it: https://www.youtube.com/user/LGerschwitz/videos

Couldn't help this deal! Brown never gets this low. Too bad they don't make clear

what are the advantages to a "mechanical" keyboard? Basically, why does this cost so much?

Are there any issues with using this under Linux Ubuntu? I'm guessing the LEDs won't work correctly, right?

this one's expensive because it has full and controllable RGB backlighting, which is rare in a keyboard like this.
a mechanical keyboard feels much better to type on as compared to a normal keyboard. it's easier to tell when you've depressed a key and is easier to maintain.
that said, it's something you need to experience firsthand yourself in order to really experience it truly.

I had to pay $170 + $5 shipping since Corsair was the ONLY place you could order them with Brown switches about 3 months ago. And even then it was still on back-order for about a month.

This is a really good keyboard. I bought some clear O-rings to make it quieter and to reduce the bottoming out distance. They don't affect the lighting in any noticeable way since they are clear. It is not loud for a mechanical keyboard but mechanical keyboards are louder than membrane keyboards.

The wrist rest is a bit to skinny for my liking and doesn't really do anything for me especially if you use the raised legs at all. I took it off and bought a gel wrist pad that provides more height which works wonders.

Like most RGB keyboards it requires two USB ports; one to power the lights and the other for sending key commands to the PC.

It's like the difference between a regular car and a luxury car or a race car. The mechanical keyboard is usually much better quality and is typically used for gaming but can improve work productivity as well. Although, I wouldn't spend more than like $80 on a mechanical keyboard.

It only requires one usb port if you have 3.0. An intel port is highly recommended too.

Great keyboard.. software sucks though.. I ended up uninstalling and running without it.

is this that much better than the logitech G710+? That one also has cherry mx brown and it's been on sale for $89.99 a few times.

It only requires one USB port when plugged into a USB 3.0 port.

Btw, mind sharing a link to the o-rings you picked up?
