It's a pretty sweet keyboard if you don't care about it being mechanical.

FYI, I just bought this keyboard last week and the Corsair software is really buggy. Apparently the issue of stuck keys has been around since 2014 and they still haven't fixed it.

The keyboard works fantastic, just don't install the Corsair software. Unfortunately, you then lose all control of macro creation and LED pattern configuration.

Clarification: I'd suggest this keyboard. I wouldn't suggest a mechanical keyboard. Even the 'quiet' ones. They are not worth the noise pollution.

Oh my God! No! It's not mechanical!
Run! Run for your lives!

It'll only last like 2 million key strokes instead of 8 million (razer greens) and won't annoy the living s**t out of your entire house and discord call!!!!

Run!

To buy it.

Been looking at this one since it's relatively cheap. I currently have razer ultimate 2016 which is like mx blues I guess. Clicky and annoying.

Now that I've gotten a mechanical keyboard... I don't think I'll ever get another mechanical keyboard. It's so hyped up but... Honestly.. it's annoying.

You may think, oh I have headphones or music playing all the time! So do I! And you still hear it.
Yes, I drown it out, and yes if you're just playing games you'll only really hear it when you start keyboard warrioring cuz you got tilted... But. I don't suggest.

Idk about Corsair keyboards anymore. I'm probably just unlucky. HOWEVER, last 2 boards I got(it was a Corsair strafe) started to double type 2 months after purchase. Amazon sent a replacement.. double typed after 1 month. A Corsair scimitar double clicked too after 2. Just saying.

You can buy some o-rings to dampen the sound.

Really? Unsure why people have this notion if it's not a mechanical keyboard it's crap...

For the price it's great IMO. Got it from Amazon slightly cheaper.

For a good mechanical keyboard you'll pay double this.

I have the corsair software installed for mine and I don't see any issues.

Did you happen to install the firmware update for the K55 using it?

I am using their software for both my K70 and my Scimitar Pro and I have had zero issues.
