[Corsair] Corsair announces new keyboard with Cherry MX Silent Switches - Page 10

From what we have seen so far among K70/K95 RGB users, a huge percentage of them never really cared about it, or didn't even bother to bring it up. My guess is, the layout not being standard is probably trivial for anyone not to enjoy the KB. But of course, in this business, it's next to impossible to please everyone.

What is the purpose of the non standard layout?

To be honest, there are 2 things preventing me from buying a K95/70 RGB today. #1, non standard layout. If I'm buying a K95 RGB it is obviously because I have commitment issues and want a keyboard that will give me options for years to come. With that, I need replaceable keycaps so that I can adjust as needed. 2nd is more subjective, but I hate the way the K95's "G" keys look like their on a removable piece of metal.

Right now, no one else offers a keyboard with similar features.

You do have a valid point like many others who brought this up. I can tell you for sure that our HID team is well aware of this subject, I just don't know if they will make a move on this. Maybe in the future, who knows. For now, not seeing it happening.
