[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1816

post #18151 of 36848
i'm excited about the idea

except corsairs keyboards are not very 'standard' and their design has always been a bit 'out there'

It sounds like a new switch housing, and 'special keycaps' do not sound good either.

My guess is a switch housing with a fiber optic line in it, and the RGB led mounted dicrectly to the circuit board.

Seems I was right, clear housings with either a fiber optic cable in it or a little lens projector type thing. Hope corsair makes it more standard and not uber leet stealth F117 looking thing like their current K line. Their keycaps are quite crap on their backlit boards. Hopefully the corsair exclusisvity wont last too long before the good manufacts can get their hands on them.

And if we can't pick and choose each individual key color that lights up, then I don't want it.

Stay excited, lol.

 

Looks like they come in blue red brown and black switches?

On topic--anyone know where the best place to get a full set of coloured thick PBT caps is?

I wouldn't be getting any until after Christmas, but I'm curious.

Just lurk on GH? Or other sites?

Something like this?http://stores.ebay.com/GeekKeys/Keycaps-/_i.html?rt=nc&_fsub=3477973017&_sid=987669357&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1581&_pgn=4
He has a few selection of pbt set in his store but not much

Cheers, thanks!

Feng again then eh?

It always come back to GH tongue.gif

Guess I should make an account....after my wallet has a chance to recover from the holidays redface.gif

I think it was on GH, where a Corsair rep replied to my query regarding standardising the modifier keys (the only ones out of whack), and stated that our comments are taken into account and future designs may be more standard smile.gif

I hope to see RGB's from Ducky, Keycool, CM and Corsair, they all do keyboards that are accessible, and not in the insane price arena smile.gif

It sounds like Corsair has some kind of proprietary deal with Cherry on these switches for a while.

if its a filco, cooler master XT, etc style, just plain square case, then I'd be on it like a hobo on a ham sandwich.

The k95 had too much going on, to many material surfaces, odd angles, it was a desk eater.

I hope they pan more towards the professional market than the gamer scene.
I'm honestly surprised corsair has that much money/power to get an exclusive deal ( for now )
Seems like something razor would want to get their hands on first, as You can find razor mechs at any best buy, but i've only seen corsair gear at frys and those
are only in big metro areas.

I hope they can pull it off.

I wonder how it would compare to something like this, I have no idea why they thought diamond plate would be a good idea though. rolleyes.gif

Then again, it might give a Model F a run for it's money in terms of proficiency as a weapon. tongue.gif

saw that article a while back, it did make me wonder what the designers were thinking, however different markets do tend to love different styles, depending on the yoof culture where computing is concerned smile.gif

I know Roccat have done a fancy RGB rubber dome the Isku, as have Steelseries with the Apex, not forgetting our friends at Alienware have been doing it for a while. So RGB led's in keyboards are not really anything new, I doubt Corsair would have a massive dominance over RGB availability, Chinese and Korean manufacturers would very likely get their hands on them fairly quickly.
