Better deal than last week's $134 price. $5 more and you get a free mouse.

Amazon's price for the RGB keyboard alone is the same, so you basically get a free mouse with this deal

This thing is very fancy. I like the audio control knob, its very useful. I only wish it was cheaper. Funny how it uses two usb cables to connect to the computer.

Makes sense, one is for the USB passthrough on the keyboard. My Razer Blackwidow is the same... but that will be going in the closet once my K70 arrives Smilie

if it's like my K65 RGB, you are only connecting both cables if using USB 2.0. If using USB 3.0 you are only supposed to connect one cable. It has to do with the data transfer limitation on the USB 2.0. The keyboard installation instructions should mention that as well.

Bought the non rapid fire one on Ebay for a bit cheaper. Currently using the MX Brown RGB for the office and I have to say, I do love this keyboard. Been trying to find reasons to type.

So far haven't received any complaints from my colleagues but they do say they are able to hear me type.

I've recently considered switching to the k95 for the macro keys (mostly for the sole purpose for copy and pasting specific texts) but still holding back because of I hear there are LED issues with the k95.

One has nothing to do with the other. This should clear things up

Keyboard Connectivity:
Connecting via USB 3.0: Use one connector (the one with the keyboard icon) when connecting via USB 3.0
Connecting via USB 2.0: Use both connectors when using USB 2.0 *

Although you can obviously connect 2 to 2 different USB 3.0, I actually advise AGAINST doing that because at least in my case I was getting a "USB device malfunctioned" error on W10 boot.

So if you only have USB 3.0, then what happens when you want to use the USB port on the keyboard?

it will work it will just share the bandwidth. Think about a monitor with a USB hub. In the same way, you plug one usb cord from your display to the back of the computer and then the 4 or how many usb ports on the monitor share the same bandwidth.
If you are worried about bandwidth limit then I highly doubt you can max that unless you are plugging something like a external hard drive which i dont think it would make sense in the first place.
