It would be no questions asked if these came with a choice of switches, like the cooler master ones. (also the backlights)

I might even get one despite the reds.

K95 seems a great keyboard and I really hope it meets our (seemingly high) expectations.Now G710+ has strong competition.

man! the k95 looks amazing with all the keys fully mechanical and a complete black theme, it looks very tempting to buy but i already own the k90 and am very happy with it. i have already purchased a new m90 at a pretty sweet deal of 40$ just to realize there is a newer m95 available soon. oh well, i never go above 4000dpi in my g700 (which is going for my laptop at work) so its kinda pointless getting an 8200dpi mouse that am never gonna use. i would sell my k90 and get the k95 but no one around here even knows what mechanical keyboards are so its not worth selling it.
one must give up the very addictive and expensive habit of always buying the latest and the greatest of pc hardware and actually enjoy and be happy with the already costy investment and actually use it and enjoy it fully in gaming.

Not sure if I'll ever understand the draw to such large keyboards with so many keys.

this is what i did.

but the only problem with that, is that G710 owners are still experiencing backlight failures... :/

It's a nice keyboard for some, but I do a lot more non gaming than gaming on my PC so the MX Red switches are not for me. If it had MX Brown or Blue I would be tempted to try it again. Also, one thing that I still think will be an issue for me is the actual design of the keyboard. Those "floating keys" and the space between them throw me off typing quite a bit and I couldn't get use to it at all so I returned my K90 due to this. For me, something like the Filco or Rosewell 9100 models are better despite the lack of lighting and macro options the K95 would have.

Has anyone got an update on the release of the K95? On a side note, I was having a read through the Corsair forums earlier today and noticed that some guys on Hexus spotted the K70 at CES. For some reason it wasn't brought up by anyone but it does appear to be real. Assuming this keyboard has the volume controls/media keys and is just missing the G-keys found on the K90/95, I think it would be ideal tongue.gif (at least for me!).

I'm totally in for one when this gets released. I absolutely love my K90 but the rubber dome keys are a bummer plus this one has fancier lights and that makes it better, right? Though, I like the unique aluminum look so I kind of wish there was an option for that without getting it anodized. Still should be a beast of a keyboard though!

Nice to see that Corsair has addressed the main critique of the mouse and keyboard.

Apparently they are going to make the side buttons on the M95 easier to use, and they made all the keys mechanical on the K95. If they also improve on the software, then Corsair is really going in the right direction with their peripherals.

Some things I would still like to see:
- A more useful wrist-rest on the K95. Give the shape and angle of the keys it is now useless for most people.
- Improve the mousewheel of the M95/M65. There are quite a lot of reports of it breaking, and on both the M90 and M60 there is a noticable rattle in the mouse because there is too much room next to the wheel.
-Make the M90 lighter. It is the heaviest mouse I have ever tried. I can still manage, but it is prohibitively heavy for a lot of people.
-Balance the weight in the M90 to not be centered toward the right and the back so much.

Still, I really applaud Corsair. Their product has not been out for long and they are already coming with updates and improvements. What is also great is that these products each really offer something different from their competitors, instead of being just copies of popular designs.

Wow that option to light up selected keys is pretty awesome. I may consider buying this keyboard.
