Solid keyboard, I have the white version. Very good build quality. Only minor complaints would be that the power cable is massive, the keys aren't as "clicky" as I would like, and the wrist rest feels kind of cheap compared to their lower tier boards (more rigid than the cushioned ones, and doesn't have magnetic attachment). Works great with Corsair RGB ecosystem if you're already in that. At full price it is a waste of money, but at the $90-$100 price point I think it's worth it.

I second this. I have the black one. Agree RE cable and wrist rest. However, I love the keys and click-less-ness. My black one looks great. Got mine with a CC bonus offer, so was free, but could have spent it on other stuff that I "needed." No regrets. Prefer it way over anything from the more common competitors.

Unless they changed the wrist rest material, it gets that sticky feeling after a few years. It has nothing to do with being dirty. It is just the soft feeling texture breaking down. I replaced mine with a HyperX cooling gel wrist rest and am happy with it.

I bought this at $130 and I think it's worth it. Wrist pad can be an issue but easily removed due to it being magnetic. This first "quality" mechanical keyboard as my previous aukey mechanical keyboard failed after 2 years. Soldered switches don't help the aukey. Attempts to replace failed.

i bought a corsair k70 back in the early 2010's and it's still kicking. are these keyboards prone to fail? it's my only one right now and i'm screwed if it breaks for whatever reason. thinking of getting a new one as a spare while it's on sale

Good price but not having hot swappable switches is a deal breaker for me.

Buy it, got my white version optic switches, it's gorgeous, just remember that this is 1mm travel , so keys are super sensitive, pbt keycaps set alone is around $45, $99 is the lowest price for this keyboard, have some k70 pro TKL, sound for optic switches same as cherry red switches ,Corsair is top quality, good luck

Looks like you can get Cherry Reds Blues and Silent for the same price on the Corsair site. The brown are $10 more.

I also have this but the low profile black version about 2yrs ago and it's still kicking. I like that the keys aren't that "clicky" though. The wrist rest is way too low for any practical use and I just got a HyperX one that works much better. The cord is thick but has a 2nd usb pass through on the keyboard (I'm not sure if that's the same still.) Anyway I'm still happy with it and at $100 it's a pretty good investment.

I have a k95 with speed switches and I hate them because of accidental key presses. Definitely can't recommend this when these are even easier to actuate.

Never actually owned a white keyboard before. How does it compare to black keyboards? Does it get discolored easily by for example turning yellow and are dirty marks more visible on white than black?

It might be psychological, but I feel like black plastic is just more durable in general.

For computer components, it's just way easier to match black. There's definitely a smaller selection for matching other colors.
