An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...

Recommended Posts

Corsair known for good quality? The reason they bought PC Power & Cooling is because their PSUs sucked ass and they had to find people who knew what they were doing. You still can't get many Corsair PSUs which will last more than 5 years. PC P&C are still going strong after 7 usually, and they fully refurbish for cheap.

:)

Maybe the delay was so they could fix the dead LED problem. Or factory test all the keyboards to make sure they didn't ship any with dead LED's

 Yeah Maybe. lol Either way it has nothing to do with waiting to see if these "Maybe's" happened or didn't happen.

Fellow Gamers, we know some of you are patiently waiting for the RGB keyboards we announced in June. Our launch date has changed, but fear not: we'll be shipping soon and will provide more details in a few weeks. We have only the highest expectations for this product, and want to deliver our community the very best. Thanks for your patience.

 

Pretty sure that Sept 8 date on Newegg is true now.

I didn't find it in the video Linus made, but I did see two dead LEDs on a video Tek Syndicate made (but I really didn't see them until someone in the comments pointed them out)

Look closely at around 5:38 and you can see the menu key and the ". del" key on the number pad aren't lit up.

Despite this though, I still pre-ordered it from Newegg  B)

YES!  TekSyndicate... not Linus.  Sorry.  Got my gear gurus confused for a min.  I saw the comments too... then rewatched the vid.

That was a Pre-production model. Someone probably soldiered that entire board at a workstation. I can imagine there would be an error with that many leads. Or that may have been a leftover from voltage stress testing that just happened to be available. I'm sure Corsair has a good explanation, if they were to give one.

Does anyone know if the M65 RGB is being delayed because of this? I can put up with waiting for the new keyboard because I have a normal k70 which still works fine (which I'll sell to buy the new one) but I'm using a M$ Mobile Mouse 3500 atm and can't justify buying the non rgb M65 only to buy another mouse in a month.

The Deathadder isn't a bad mouse if you want to get the Chroma mouse. Just a suggestion. This may come out quicker if you can't wait it out.

Razer's keyboards and audio are terrible, but they do make some good stuff, including mice.

I would wait it out for the m65 if you can.

That is exactly what I was thinking... 

I do trust that corsair will fix the LED problems that they had with the k70/k90/k95, or at least minimize the chances of it... as TONS of people know and complain about it all the time haha.

Plus if it was indeed a dead LED that was actually caused due to faulty design Logan probably would have pointed it out and talked about the LED reliability/ ESD problems with the spokesperson, which interestingly has been omitted from

a lot of videos that were showcasing this keyboard (with the exception of Linus, who actually asked questions about it :P).

Yeah that one is a mystery, they never even released a date for them in the first place... although they will probably release it around when the k70 rgb comes out imo

I bet they turned of those LEDs just to troll you.

The sensei wireless isn't a bad choice either I guess, if you are into ambidextrous mice like I am :P...

The problem is I had finally decided on the perfect mouse for me (m65) when they came out with the RGB version. I am just going to wait but I really hope they just release it on time and not delay it just to bring it in line with the k70 rgb.

Well seeing as though they aren't even ANNOUNCING anything to do with the m65 at all right now, I doubt they are ready with that either :/

I just hope the k95 rgb comes out sometime... I mean, it's already losing its lustre for me since school is starting and getting a keyboard for gaming is slowly becoming un-needed

since I won't be gaming as much.

Even so, I will most likely pick one up for the hell of it haha.

Not to get anyone hopes high but is this official or just a estimate?

Looks like the pricing is about right.

The Steelseries Rival is a good choice if you want a mouse with RGB and can't wait for an m65 RGB (if one ever comes out).

They may be discontinuing the normal K70 and K95. Newegg is dropping prices and on the board with blue switches they are advertising:

Special savings, while supplies last

So I can imagine they are trying to clear out inventory because they were discontinued, for the RGB ones, or Corsair has a new line of keyboards they are releasing.

They probably had to stop making the normal K70's so they could switch over their manufacturing to the RGB boards.

 

IDK just speculation. Half Life 3 Confirmed.

Not sure why they need to move out old stock,it seems like this product fits a different price point. I have seen some discounting but nothing like those you see when a product is being discontinued.

I was thinking the same thing, which leaves me to believe Corsair is waiting to resupply the K70's when they deliver the RGB boards, or they are coming out with a new product line. Like I said, I'm just speculating though.
