[TPU] Corsair Debuts First Gaming Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX RGB Switches - Page 19  

post #181 of 1335
Beautiful but overpriced and the "extra" features aren't worth the extra cost. I want one color. It's not like my blue-themed desktop will change colors so why should this.

EDIT: Lastly, "somewhat reliable" doesn't make it reliable at all - thumb.gif

Not trying to knock you down at all, just stating that sometimes look at things from a lighter side and a pragmatic side versus biting people's head off kind of stance! biggrin.gif

Oh you mean like calling people "tard" and "puppet" .. yea that wasn't me

Some people always get jealous of others success, I think Linus does what he does and he's entertaining while he does it. No reason to hate someone for that.

There are lots of articles humming about that same thing, hopefully a corsair rep can sort this mucho importante feature out for us.


"Other hardware additions include better avoidance of electro-static discharge. Keyboard leds are typically killed by ESD, given the proximity to the user’s hands, and Corsair has worked with Cherry to mitigate the possibility of ESD-related death. Cherry and Corsair switched to surface-mount LEDs (SMD LEDs), but have also moved the LED’s location. By physically moving the LED below the switch (rather than housing it within the switch), the switch serves as a buffer (almost like an insulator) and protects the electrical components from the user. Consequently, this also reduces the stiffness of the switches, so those who complained of LED backlit keyboards being too stiff should be better served."

I have no opinion nor do I really care if it's true or a marketing ploj or whatever. I was merely responding to a question asked a couple of pages ago, with "what I've heard about the led mounting"

Was gonna go with this soon as it was available, but after reading about Coolermasters NovaTouch, It's my pick.

Sounds exactly like the switch I prefer, if you can technically call it a switch?

I'm fine with my red lights and cherry red keys.

We just finished the R key. Team of six guys. Took us a while. But we're on the home stretch now.

Ordering the RGB K70 as soon as the email goes out from Corsair. They said end of July so it should be coming within these last two weeks. I still need to decide what key switches I want to get as I've never used a mechanical keyboard.

this isn't even a good keyboard.

It's 200$ for a fancy lighting scheme. I have a red K70 and it pales in comparison to my ducky, let alone my HHKB or realforce keyboard that are all in similar price ranges.
