Corsair K60 users here? Thoughts/experience?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I really like the red switches on the ASDW cluster, as I play FPS often. I also love the look of the keyboard and the media keys. However can anyone here comment on its performance and quality? I know it started out with some stuck key bugs, are they still there and very prominent?
Anything else you would like to add?
Thanks!

Also, before people don't come in here recommending other keyboards, I'm not interested in those right now so thank you anyway!

I've had mine for about 3 months. It's quality is definitely extremely high. I love the aluminium on it. Don't expect this thing to break or shatter. I've heard of the keys sticking or not working, but I haven't had any problems at all.

Things I like the most
-The volume control and mute button.
-WASD, 123456 keys can be switched. It really does help.
-The space bar and orange keys are textured plastic, so you know what key you're hitting.
-Windows lock button
-The clicky keys

Things I don't like
-It uses two USB slots
-The cable is extremely stiff
-Not every key is mechanical (Esc, f1-f12, PrtScn, ScrollLock, etc) I don't use these so I don't care.
-The wrist rest is cheap and made of plastic.
-Not backlit

Thanks for the reply! So you've never had an issue with the keys sticking, not even once? That is one of the main things that is making me hold off from this keyboard, I'm curious how often it happens now or if they have fixed the issue

Not once have I had this issue. It is common though.

Do you game a lot? What style if so?

I play Battlefield 3, TF2 and PlanetSide 2 nearly everyday and then some games like SWTOR. It's pretty good for something like FPS, and it's actually decent for stuff like WoW and SWTOR. It was made for FPS. Just no macro keys.

I own the K90 version and I've yet also to experience the keys sticking issue. I've only owned mine a couple of days but I have typed for about 4 hours a day on it and no repeating keys. I have updated mine to the latest firmware though so they might have already fixed it, i don't know. Hopefully they have and I don't run into that issue especially while gaming smile.gif

That's awesome. I think I'm going to take the plunge. I don't need the extra macro keys so I probably will stick to the K60. My hesitation now is that since these keyboards have been out for so long I wonder if a new model will be released in the near future
