10REFURBDEC takes off 10% refurb for the month of December (never saw the 10% in cart discount) also gave free shipping

If you ordered a K70 with MX Brown and red LEDs, you may receive the MX Red version by mistake. There was an error with their website listing.
Thank you for your recent purchase at CORSAIR.com.

First time posting here, thought I would give you guys some info on this deal (I am somewhat of a mechanical keyboard fanatic..)

Price -- This is a great deal. Best I've seen on a phenomenal keyboard. I am typing to you right now on a brown switch k70 RGB. You can also purchase that one on ebay refurbished for $100. That also stacks with the ebay coupons they occasionally have. If you have any questions about that let me know.. I can give you more details.

Red switch -- Quick response / requires hardly any force to actuate keypress for gaming, yet lack of feedback makes it feel like a standard membrane keyboard. As a gamer I went for this type of keyboard first and kept accidentally pressing keys which annoyed me. The lack of feedback also felt like there was no point in having a mechanical keyboard.

Blue switch -- Physical and Audible feedback on each key press which is usually preferred for precision typing. Clicking each key can be strangely appealing. There is a joke on Reddit that "Once you go clack you never go back." Keep your environment in mind with this keyboard, you could keep your spouse awake at night, or distract coworkers.

Brown switch -- this is a halfway point between the other 2 switches. It has a physical tactile feedback, yet not as loud of a sound. This can be ideal for someone who has a computer in a bedroom or does both gaming and typing. If you don't know which you like I would recommend starting with this one.

Build Quality -- These boards might be the best out of any consumer grade board. It is made out of brushed aluminum which looks great/ The keys are raised up which makes them very easy to clean as well. The k70 I have used for years at work has had no issues at all. The media wheel at the top right makes changing songs and volume very easy and I love that feature.

Refurbished -- I have purchased two of these boards refurbished and they came in brown boxes. They really seemed completely brand new and never used. Not a single scratch or issue. I could have been lucky though, who knows. I have a theory that some companies sell new items as refurbished to capture more consumers while doing minimal harm to their products value. This happens with BenQ monitors as well.

Compared to Logitech -- The logitech keyboards don't use true "Cherry MX" switches which are basically the tried and true standard of the mechanical keyboard market. They will also feel like cheap plastic compared to the fine aluminum finish of the k70. However, some people really like the futuristic look it has. You can'y really go wrong with either.

Resale value -- Out of all the keyboards I have owned, I have noticed that the easiest to resell have been Razer and the K70. I believe this is because Razer has done a better job marketing their inferior product, and the K70's build quality is the best and it is easiest to clean up and make it look new again.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Corsair currently has many refurbished accessories on sale and is offering an extra 10% off at checkout. I have been looking for a K70 with MX Blues as they rarely go on sale. My total was $58.88 with shipping. This is the version with the newer sails logo. The MX Red and Brown switch versions are the same price.

Ahh, my Strafe is in packaging at Newegg, so I can't cancel. Wish I would have waited a few hours and picked up this K70 deal. Oh well, only spent about $7 more after the shipping for the refurb. The nicer build quality would have been good.

I was tempted to purchase the k70 rgb, is it a good price at 98.99 for refurb? Don't think I've seen it for cheaper.
