An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...

Recommended Posts

This is starting to remind me of the OPO. I'm quickly losing interest in them.

todays consumers are quite fickle. Tell them too soon and their angry, tell them late or not at all beforehand and their angry. People arnt happy if you push it out of the door unfinished but theyre also not happy if you have to delay it because it need more work.

Corsair gets more time than OPO does. They (OPO) keep trying to make it look great, but never actually feel like selling it at the price that they advertise.

This would also be my first mechanical keyboard but I don't know which to choose.

Razer or Corsair? I like both but I've been waiting for the Corsair RGB since CES.

Please help lol :)

Having tried both products I woud always always always go with corsair. Razer seems to win when it comes to design and sales but when you compare build quality, technology and durability, anything else is better. It is like Apple with their amazing design vs HTC / Samsung.

I would say Corsair because I think the Panasonic chip that controls the LEDs are way more powerful then the chroma.

Corsair. unless you like something in particular about the Razer case design. If you do any typing whatsoever than STAY AWAY FROM RAZER KEYBOARDS. The new gaming switch they use has a raised actuation point and bump that makes bottoming out almost unavoidable. The Switches are Kahil, which are cheap, poor quality knockoff Cherry's. Don't let the 60 million preses get you either, something else in that keyboard will break far before that switch dies; assuming the switch will last that long (It won't). Also Synapse is full of bugs and uses a lot of RAM. Also Corsairs software will be open source, so you will have the modding community behind the K70. I cant wait for my board to (Modders, take notes) sync with midi files (lightshow anyone?), or flash red when wounded, play the worm game, share profiles, display my printers ink levels,  have a timer that turns off LED's as the time runs out, displays the time, looks like 8 bit mario, or really anything

Is there any news at all about this? I'm starting to think the K70 Browns will be delayed and the M65.

That was easy. But thanks guys, I was aiming towards Corsair anyways.

I personally don't mind waiting longer for the keyboard for what ever reason as long as it works when its actually released. However, the lack of communication from corsair of the delay after giving a time frame for the keyboards release is quite annoying.

I have a feeling since the first announcement was a "target" release date now that they're into final production and seeing problems that they're working on they don't want to make an announcement and miss their release date again. So until they're pretty much all ready to go and the product is flawless then we won't hear an announcement. The other thing could be that they're being quiet because they're hoping to release these keyboards as soon as possible, lie by the end of the month so as not miss their release date by much. At the last minute they'll say that they are ready for production and we won't have to wait.

 

I'm crossing my fingers for the latter.

My only question to corsair about this keyboard is:

Will the software be supported on Linux (Ubuntu, Arch Linux) and MacOS?


One day I will be able to play Monster Hunter Frontier in French/Italian/English on my PC, it's just a matter of time... 4 5 6 7 8 9 years later: It's finally coming!!!

It's less about when they started the hype train and more about them being silent. I'm fine with a delay but, they have to communicate that. You don't set a release date and then just be mute about it when that time has come, you have open lines of communication with your community and customers.

 

If they need to delay til Sept/Oct. etc. then fine but, they should be telling us that.

With how open the architecture is than you Linux fans should get a modded version fairly soon from the community.

All the majors modders of this board will probably be over at Geekhack. Although I do intend to start a Topic as a database here.

Still waiting for these to come into stock. No rush but it would be nice to replace my K95...which just blew a few LED's a couple weeks back. If I recall correctly, these new RGB LED's are suppose to be better quality?

They're suppose to be implemented differently so the problems with electrostatic discharge or something doesn't affect them the way it currently does. They might also be better quality, but the overall design is better quality.

There was a dead LED on the one examined by Linus in his vid.  I bet you 20 bux that they are still having dead LED issues they are trying to sort out... since they told us it would be fixed.  Too bad for Corsair.  I just ordered the rest of my parts for my new PC and their keyboard wasn't on the list.  Bummer for them.

I was just about to post something like this... 

 

Corsair is losing out on potential customers. Not only for their bad design but also for people who are tired of waiting and ready to shell out money to their competitors, i.e. http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-blackwidow-ultimate-chroma

Unfortunately there are no statistics, data, or even technical information to back up the claim of a better design or better quality product.

I agree. That's why I believed that they may be trying to release this relatively soon as to not have to make a delay announcement. I can see them being afraid that if they do make an announcement that their concern is that many people will give up waiting and purchase another keyboard but to keep quiet in order to avoid that is a cheap move. The ONLY reason I see them staying quiet is because they are going to release it very soon and they don't see justification in needing to make an announcement. If there is indeed an issue that is pending or work that needs to be done and they're just choosing to neglect and alienate their fans then shame on them.

Yea I probably should have said "overall design is likely better quality" but I didn't. Just basing that off the things they've said, but that's all marketing speak too.

It's much better to delay a release than tp rush an unfinished product to market.
