Completely unimpressed with this keyboard. The RGB functionality is a joke and does NOT sync with Corsair's online programming which I had to have anyways for my M65 pro mouse. It uses crappy function key switching that is extremely cumbersome and monotonous as well as not being fully RGB functional. If you're curious about that I also have a rather lengthy review on Newegg that isn't hard to find.

The keys are very generic membrane with no more or less feeling than any other membrane keyboard. The ONLY good thing about it over my old Corsair K30 keyboard is the included wrist rest. Past the wrist rest I would have just stuck with the K30. The price of this keyboard (that I also got for Christmas) went down $10 (from $49.99 to $39.99) the first week of January as well. DAMN IT NEWEGG. At $39.99 its not such a bad keyboard but I would only recommend it at the $30 price. I'm in process of trying to send this back if Newegg will let me.

First, I suck at games so no amount of better hardware will ever change that fact. If you have skill and want a highly competitive setup, get a real gaming keyboard. This juicy plate is for noobs like me who want to look styling without the 140.00 hit in the wallet. If you have a RGB build and think a Logitech would be OK but not quite right, here is a cheap route. It's black so yay for that.

Wish I got a mechanical keyboard but this is a very high quality membrane keyboard plus it looks nice so can't complain. I did overpay a little for it but oh well, perks of being Australian

Can't say enough about this keyboard, it does not feel cheap at all when you use it and it is awesome to have all the possibilities with the RGB programming along with 6 hotkeys on the side.

Decent keyboard and for the $40 price special I think it was a good purchase. Its user didn't want a mechanical keyboard but did want a quality RGB keyboard so this was a natural choice, particularly since I already own one and could vouch for its features, value, and quality.

Bit loud, not that I really care. Nice lights and awesome macro abilities. The Windows key disable button is doubly awesome.

Pretty basic RGB keyboard with some macro keys. It's a good keyboard if you want RGB but keep in mind everything has be controlled manually. It does not sync with the Corsair Utility Engine so if you have a mouse that does, your keyboard will be a different color scheme unless you change it manually using the FN key and function keys. The keys also aren't mechanical so don't expect much other than your basic keyboard that has RGB lighting. I only got this because my old Logitech keyboard's function keys stopped working. I'll upgrade soon, but for now its okay.

It is pretty sturdy however, I've dropped it a few times, and it still works flawlessly.

I'm gonna be honest, I didn't expect too much out of this keyboard, but I really do like it. It requires no software to use (which is upsetting, in a way, more on that later) and has 3-zone RGB lighting, as well as 6 macto keys on the far left side. I like the customization for the backlighting, as little as it is, and I like having macro keys. My only real complaint is that there isn't any software, and the macro keys don't exactly have reminders on them of what you assigned each key to do, and the timing between each keypress is only a few miliseconds, it isn't customizable, sadly. But, hey, what do you expect from a $50 keyboard?
