I had been wondering about that, thanks. That was the one thing I was really concerned about.

Been using the keyboard for a week now, love the way it types. Using it for work as much as for gaming. I'm a good touch typist so the Reds are perfect. The .4mm O-rings make a nice difference too. Still makes a clack just not a very sharp loud one; allows you to type without worrying about making undue noise due to bottoming out. It feels chalky & effortless at the same, if that even makes any sense. I like grip textured WASD & 1-6 keys. Doesn't even phase me when doing normal typing with them on.

I like how the board is metal throughout the entire top plate. The brushed silver is very sharp looking and the keys being raised up above the flat metal surface is nice. Makes it easier to clean and change out keys.....that was a lot of O-rings!

Was reading through here....the board didn't come with software. In fact, if you look at the board on the Corsair site there is no Download tab for the board. There is one for the K90 though! After reading through here I'll download the Vengeance software and see what it gets me that I don't already have? FYI, running Windows 8. I also have a Corsair M65 mouse and I can tell you the software for the Vengeance does not see the keyboard, entirely different piece of software. You figure Corsair would be smart and make one piece of software for both mice and keyboards.

The wrist rest if done very well, best attachable wrist rest I've seen. It's preferable for me to use it with the his keyboard as the key caps are kind of high...see pic below.

Only negative is the lack of rubber on the feet. CM does this on their keyboards and it's a nice touch. But, the keyboard is weighty enough and using it exclusively on the glass section of my desk it doesn't slide around; the two rubber pads on the bottom hold it in place well enough.

I've had the K70 for a couple of days now and I can confirm that the cherry mx red switches are ridiculously responsive; making them ideal for gaming. Although, I find that when typing the sensitivity of the switches makes for the occasional mistype form time to time.

It may not require any additional software. I refuse to use the razer synapse spy/bloatware on my computer, and the only functionality I lose from my blackwidow are the macro keys on the side that I don't have a use for anyway. Media keys, brightness control, and even "gamer mode" (disables the windows key) all work just fine without any additional software on my system.

Does anyone have a problem with the left shift key, every key on this keyboard is buttery smooth except for the left shift key, there is some resistance and rubbing of the plastic.
post #36 of 67
Interesting, I seem to be getting a very small amount of resistance my self, It's hardly noticeable. I think its either the plastic or the metal spring that is causing some friction somewhere.
post #37 of 67
Damn, i already placed an RMA from Newegg, should have asked for a refund if i had known all keyboards would be like this. reason why i notice it was because i do alot of sprinting in battlefield 3.

update: hopefully it just needs time breaking in

True say, I'm finding that some of the larger keys; specifically the ones I use less (right shift), have a minimal amount of friction when pressed. I pressed them down a few hundred times or so and the friction seems to have faded. It's defiantly a matter of breaking them in.
post #39 of 67
Mine is good to go, very well stabilized. Although, I did pull every key off and threw a .4mm O-ring on it and reseated every key properly.

Also, I may not have noticed it because as soon as I got the keyboard I've been using it non stop for work & play, mine was pretty well broken in when day 3 rolled around; that's for sure. thumb.gif
