An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Damnit! That would suck. I started out with one bad LED, I turned off almost all of them with the onboard customization. Turned all of them back on recently just to see that more have failed. I'm a sad panda...  As much as I want to keep giving Corsair my money, they need to step up their QC. I have had one Corsair Vengeance 2000 headset crack, one failed K90 keyboard with a failed LED light and messed up C key, and the only thing that kept me from jumping to another brand was their excellent customer service. They happily replaced them with the newer products since I was still in warranty. I hope they can get these LED's under control.

I still don't know why they choose red switch first.

I was wondering that as well so I asked and they said rhey've sold more of the reds than any other keyswitch so it only makes good business sense to bring out the one they sell more of first.

yeah... Don't see the big deal... I get you could want it as fast as possible but corsair is right. No point releasing a product you are not sure of it will work 100% as you promised. Just wait for fuck sakes :) or buy another cheap one if you really need a new one and are waiting for the rgb...

-snip-

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)

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

BINGO

 

Its called Marketing BS. They knew they had a problem with the blues but never admitted it, but now they say they have a better LED to fix the ones they didn't have a problem with to start with :-)

Its not because they are better though. Its because theyre marketed as the "gaming switch".

With such delays I don't understand why they don't just release all the switches at once.

MOQ meaning they need to order a certain amount. This is the first run of the clear RGB switches so they probably had to order a couple literal tons of them.

Yea I noticed those dead LED's before. There's another one or two in the top row I think.

Damn, so tempted to pre-order but I think I want the browns. Any idea when the blues/browns will be released.

Same thing here we want dates! I am building my PC september 12, I would so much love if it is released september 8!

Worst case scenario, blues and browns are released a month after reds. If I can rely on previous announcements from the July/August release. They may be released at the same time due to the delay though.

So I checked my e-mail after pre-ordering the RGB from Newegg and I found something interesting in the Google trusted store e-mail

probably that they haven't updated their shipping eta's from the original release date to be honest. i don't know what i want to do at the moment... im scared to buy this because i dont want to risk it and have a key light die out in a month like with my k70. but it looks so freakin cool.... i know it has a new pcb and what not... but new batches of brand new products dont really have the best record. i just dont know what other mechanical to buy... im currently on a steelseries apex (vomits) since my k70 died and this was my backup
