On top of what Cid says above, is the fact that Corsair want to charge the same as fully mechanical keyboards. If you're gonna cost cut then let that be reflected in your MSRP.

Why pay full price for a partial product? If this thing was going to be like $60 it would be justifiable, but it's being priced with keyboards that don't have any rubber domes. Also, I use the F keys quite a lot in RTS games.

I'd get it for the rubberized keys and the 20 key rollover on usb, there are other parts of the product that make up for it. Plus I think you're also paying for the Corsair name, and if you ever have any problems surely the warranty will fix that.

Rubberized keys I guess is a personal preference, I don't like the feel of that on keycaps. 6KRO has always been enough for me, but as far as that goes, the Noppoo Choc Mini has NKRO over USB if that's something you are looking for. If you want to pay for a name then go buy a Filco, I've not had a problem with any mechanical keyboard I've owned, so it's not an issue to me.

I'm personally waiting for the K60/90 to come out. I'm interested to see how they do. Will wait for the first batch to come out and see the initial reviews. If the build quality is good unlike the rumor, I think I'll end up getting the K90 as my first mechanical keyboard (more-so for the backlighting than the function keys, what's an extra $20 anyways on a $120 keyboard?). If I do end up purchasing, I will be more than happy to provide an unbiased first impression review here on Overclock.net. I think it would be beneficial for people to get opinions from others that have never had a mechanical before and want to make the step up from their stock keyboards (I'm using an 8 year old HP one as I type) instead of just from the keyboard enthusiasts who are for the most part, looking for the typing experience and not so much the aesthetics of the keyboard.

I completely understand why some of the keyboard enthusiasts are a little butt-hurt (no offense) about the fact that these keyboards are hybrids instead of fully mechanical. And rightfully so they are. However in my experience, I use the Function keys and the 9-block above the arrow keys very,very rarely if at all. And for me to use the excuse that these keys are going to wear out before the Cherry switches do is completely illogical. If you don't use them, how can they wear out faster? I'm currently running a keystroke counter program that's counting the amount of times I hit the aforementioned keys for the next week. I'll report back what I find out. If it's <50 strokes for the whole week (and I use my computer 8+ hours a day), then I cannot simply discount these keyboards because of the hybrid feature. I'm an aesthetics/graphics guy by nature, I like the best visual quality in my games (that I can afford) and on my desktop. So getting one of the Leopold or Filco keyboards is a no-go for me personally. I'm not placing one of those, in my opinion (don't flame), ugly keyboards next to my 800D with blue cathodes and liquid cooling.

So I will report back if I order the K60 or not and hopefully get a good review out to help some of those out there that are too afraid to ask here in the keyboard community about the K60/90 for fear of getting verbally assaulted by some of the other users in here (you know who you are haha). Cheers everyone and here's to hoping that Corsair didn't make a completely fail product and will drop their price by $30 or so.

Go play Morrowind or Fallout 3 and then tell me you don't hit F5 at least 500 times a week.

We also have differing opinions on aesthetics. To me the Corsair boards have a disjointed look while something like the Filcos have cleaner refined look that would look well next to any computer. I'm very much into aesthetics as well and IMO a nice tenkeyless looks better than most keyboard save for keyboards that at the end of the day just arent very usable as gaming keyboards.

Well, I'm currently waiting for my pre-ordered K60 to arrive. This being my first mechanical keyboard, I couldn't care less about the fact that some of the keys (that I rarely use) aren't mechanical.

This seems to be the first I've heard about poor build quality, however. So I shall wait and see what Corsair really delivers when it arrives biggrin.gif

I really wish people would stop with this nonsense already...........I was still using my seventeen year old Microsoft Natural Keyboard up until a few weeks ago and it has rubber domes in it. No character wear, no sticky keys. Nothing.

I've got a six year old crappy wireless logitech that uses rubber domes and there is not a single problem with it and it's not going to spontaneously combust any time soon either.

Funny enough, I'd never heard of rubber dome keyboards being prone to failing "in a few years time" till I started looking at this forum and I'm 100% sure I'm not the only one who has epically old rubber dome keyboards functioning just fine.

Does that mean that rubber domes dont break? Not at all, but the relatively tiny amount of cases you'll actually hear of in terms of rubber domes breaking doesn't mean that all rubber domes are going to commit suicide in a little while, just because they're rubber domes......infact, my seventeen year old Microsoft Natural rubber domed keyboard has probably outlasted MANY mechanical keyboards that people have purchased on this website. Even with all the abuse that I've given it.
