Beautiful keyboard.

Too bad I am not in the market for one. I would definitely buy this.

Question: ppl refer to the feel of Duckies etc being better or whatnot...

Seriously? Don't all of them share the same Cherry MX switches? What kind of "feel" are you referring to? Key-cap texture? Minor key-to-key distance differences?

I actually like the design of the K90, so this board is appealing to me - more than my Trigger at least...wish it was around when I bought mine, but I don't think I would get it for the price I got the CM for, so I doubt I would end up opting for it...

Only red key available?

Isn't Roccat's mech keyboard due out soon? At least Roccat doesn't shove textured keys down buyer's throats. What if some people don't game on WASD?

The textured & colored WASD keys, & #'s  come as EXTRA's ... you don't HAVE to use them, so no one is shoving anything down anyone's throat ? headscratch.gif

As a K90 owner I can happily state that I haven't used any of the macro keys, frankly I forgot they were even there. Yet there they are, 18 of them just sitting there adding another 2-3 inches of length to my keyboard rolleyes.gif

Looks like Corsair were listening.

Ever since I bought my Logitech G110 I wondered what the hell was the point of macro keys for gaming. I have very long fingers and I can only just reach the G keys with my pinky while holding onto WASD, to properly reach them I have to move my whole hand. Why would I do that unless I wanted to get my head blown off in the game?

I agree to an extent. This keyboard on the other hand is a different story, a lot the high-end mechanical keyboards cost 130 and above quite easily. For the features it has I'd say it's worth it.
I'm actually curious about this keyboard just for the fact being that it has an aluminum chassis. I've been using a Das Keyboard for a few years now, the gloss plastic on the frame is nothing but a filth magnet.
I would prefer blue keys, but I'd be willing to give red ago for gaming.

My mistake, I read this news a few days ago at another site and it did not make any mention to those keys being optional as I remember the K60 did.

Couldn't agree more.

As for Brows vs Reds, there is a difference, and an obvious one at that. I should know, I actually have 2 reds and a brown within reach of each other. If you think they're anything alike, you need to go back to the store and try them again.

Am I wrong when I claimed that the bottoming out issue is a no-brainer when you type at a decent speed, due to being unable to control it?

Also, the difference isn't that obvious. Sure, there is the feedback (or tactility), but because the spring is the same, the difference isn't that big, not at all. And I should know since I still own an mx red and mx brown and go back and forth between them all the time.

Actually, Ducky is not a top-of-the-line brand. In regards to the feeling... keycap material changes the feeling, and so does the thickness of such keycap, whether the switch is plate or pcb mounted and some other things. It's not as easy as to claim that an mx blue keyboard will feel just the same as any other, because it's not.

Heck, I can tell when switching keycaps on my keybards... going from SP keycaps to original Cherry DS made a very noticeable difference (and not a good one, just different).

You can double tap mx blues without releasing them. The actuation point is just after the click, try it. it's far from being crappy, it's just different.

Ducky is very similar to Filco's build quality. The plastic is slightly different though, but it doesnt justify a 60$ premium for the Filcos.
