Corsair K90 Keyboard Release ? - Page 4

If I spent the majority of time typing (like my work PC), I'd want a different switch.

And as far as anybody saying that we're trying to lie to customers or something - that's just insulting. We're the ones who came out and told everyone what we did and why we did it. If you don't agree with that, I completely understand. We're all allowed to have our own opinions - but we're not trying to mislead anybody. We are completely up front about what decisions we made and why we made them.

I understand if you don't want to buy our products because you would prefer full mechanical or something (though I disagree with its necessity - I can understand why you might feel differently), we aren't lying to anybody.
Well excuse me for being a little crass, but it seems kind of stupid to think users are so inept, they cannot control their own fingers, therefor require muddier key switches to stop them.

EVEN if that is the case, how do you explain the insert/home/delete keys? 99% of gaming takes place on the left side of the keyboard. Accidental presses wouldn't be an issue with those keys.

Tons of people own Black widows/BWU/BWU:S and I've never heard any of them complain they accidentally hit keys, macro keys, or the F keys. They use brown and blue switches which are pretty darn close to the required actuation force of reds.

If you are indeed sticking by your guns by saying it wasn't to save money, then did you have chimpanzees in your development test phase, and determined they would mistakenly press the wrong keys?

Now do people wonder why there aren't many reps floating around forums? I'm sure they just love to be told they are stupid or inept.

If everyone is so smart they could design a keyboard and market it. You don't have to buy it if you don't like it.
Bang!

I'm sorry you are unable to read correctly without seeing words and thinking I'm calling people names.

Re-read slower. I wasn't calling anybody stupid or inept. Although I may make an exception for you.

another thing i don't understand. they say it's a gaming mechanical keyboard but then they make the "gaming" part rubber domes (macro keys)

I think it's important to let Corsair and other companies know what we think of their products and where improvements can be made. On the other hand there's no reason to be rude about it. Reps are taking their time to post on here and communicate with us about their products, the least we can do is show a little respect. Corsair has always been good when it comes to implementing and listening to feedback, so if you don't like these current models hopefully we can help to improve future designs.

The whole idea of having the F keys rubber dome to avoid accidental actuation is ridiculous.

Using a Choc Mini w/ browns(same actuation force as reds) and I've never accidentally pressed an F key and they sit directly above the number row.


As stupid as it is, they could have at least used a stiffer mechanical switch instead of rubber domes.

Maybe you need to calm the hell down. You're the one claiming they have monkeys working on their products, not me. I could also care less what you think of me calling you out on that. There's absolutely no need to be rude to reps who take time to post on the forums you visit.

Listen to what SalttheWalt is saying. It makes sense. You can be critical fine, but don't bash the company because you dislike one product. You act like it's end of the world or something.

Well with the haphazardly lazy marketing jargon excreted to explain the 40 rubber dome keys on a MECHANICAL KEYBOARD, one would have to assume as such.

Also, chimpanzees are not monkeys.

Whatever you think of their way to explain the decision is fine. There's nicer ways to explain your concerns.

As for chimpanzee vs monkey doesn't matter...and it's not the point.

Well I honestly don't think there was anything wrong with the way I worded my response. I feel the degree of questioning is deserved in my opinion for what, to a lot of people is a ridiculously explained reason for the decision.

It's almost insulting that they think customers are either too stupid to A) not know how to use a keyboard properly and require dumbed down versions or B) to accept that ridiculous explanation for the choice to add 40 dome keys on a mechanical keyboard.

For those reasons, I feel I'm justified. Whether you do or not, I could care less.
