This is cool...my problem is that the switches I prefer are no longer being made. Found a 22 year old keyboard at a thrift shop that uses SMK switches and now I can't go back to Cherry's.

If anyone is interested in my now not-being-used KBTalKing Pure with MX Blues, Greed LED's, O-ring mod, and gold colored metal backspace and escape keys drop me a PM!tongue.gif

Stopped using LED keyboards long ago. One LED dies, the whole board becomes unbalanced.
I'll stick to the no frills boards.

Nah, the same was said about Deck and Ducky. I'm good.
If you listen to the video, EMS can cause premature LED death. It remains to be seen if Corsair new LED mounting can stand up to the test.
We will not know that until after the warranty runs out.

My cousins two failed H100's and three failed M65's would disagree. I know I'm personally staying far away from Corsair...plus there are many other options and companies out there!

hmm .. both of those products have extremely good reviews on newegg.. either your cousin is the most unlucky person on the planet or he doesnt take care of his equipment very well..I have several corsair products in my possession and have had exactly 0 issues with any of them...and if i did they have great warranties..as i said i have never had any issues with my stuff so i have no idea as to whether or not the RMA process is a pain but the warranty itself is usually a great one..

just because there's good reviews on newegg doesnt mean a product cant be defective or die early into its life. No company can guarantee a working product 100% of the time, hence warranties. Just because yours is good today doesnt mean it wont fail tomorrow rolleyes.gif

reviews are a very good judge of quality. thats why they are there. 1 or 2 failures happens.. but for the same person to have as many as he was saying is just ... well..unbelievably bad. It makes me think there was human error involved. and of course my stuff can go bad at any time.. in time its guaranteed to go bad...but in the years that i have had them i have had 0 issues..corsair is a great company and they make great products. if you take care of them and dont abuse them they should last a long time...i stand by my opinion..but its just my opinion..take it or leave it.. idc..wave2.gif
