The K60 would be perfect for me if it had brown switches and no volume control. I don't want any keyboard to be messing with my audio/volume settings.

Volume Control isn't gonna change anything on your system unless you hit the button yourself.

This kind of made me laugh. Do you think the keyboard arbitrarily changes the volume w/o you pressing any buttons or something?

I simply don't want the buttons there with the potential to be pressed by accident. If I wanted to use it, it would not work. If I have one sound card at 20% and another at 100% and hit volume down, then it would set both to 90%. This would damage my k701/dt-770 drivers and my hearing.

For most keyboards, you have to hold down the FN key before you press the Volume key for it to work.

And mini keyboards or any keyboards that have the volume functions on say, the F1-F12 keys.

All 3 of my keyboards that have media controls(non laptop) require a modifier key to be pressed to manipulate the volume.

On the other hand; I like the look of the new Corsair keyboards. They're different, and interesting.
Though, the exposed switches could be bad.
Aside from the switches hes around the edges, they aren't really any more exposed than they are on a normal keyboard.

Or if it were made by Razer. Man, that Lycosa of mine was annoying, and RMA'ing it didn't make it any better.

I may have already said this, but I think the exposed switch is a very cool idea. It's just too bad the rest of the board doesn't fit my wants/needs.
