Your thoughts on the K95 RGB Platinum

Recommended Posts

It looks like a beautiful keyboard.  Everything seems great about it but the only cons I can think of are:

  • It is too expensive.
  • Very limited in regards to key switches.
  • Some people might find the design gimmicky (I'm alright with it).

Other than that the keyboards look solid.  I'd get one in Browns if the price wasn't as high.

That doesn't really contribute much.  How is "Beautiful" a Con?

Some people dont like RGB :P

Ahh, I get you now.  I suppose but I doubt Corsair, with their whole marketing ploy of RGB, are going to make a non-RGB version of it.  Inb4 no backlighting is the next big craze next week.

Yeah but overall its a very nice keyboard. Not sure if its worth the 200$ mark but still, good job Corsair.

Only get it over the K70 if you need all those extra macro buttons


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

pros:

its a well built keyboard

it looks pretty nice

cherry switches

keycaps

 

cons:

price

cherry switches

keycaps

the K70 and Masterkeys Medium exist

size

 

 

cherry switches are definatly some of the highest quality ones, but they are pretty booring if you ask me

the keycaps are the same as on the K70 i think, which are if you ask me really nice but i have heard some people really dislike them. also if its the LUX font just throw them in the bin and burn them, because that font is just the worst, id rather have god damn comic sans...

the K70 is a smaller size, if you ask me, a pretty perfect board with a good build, smaller price and just as nice in the other regards. its just dosent have macros but i have never found a use for them.

i mention the Masterkets M because its what i find to be the perfect compromise for gamers, its a navless board which is my second favorte layout after full size, because it has all the functionality of a full size with the nav intergrated really nicely into the numpad and you toggle between with the num lock key. i have the predecessor, the QuickfireTK and its a super nice board.

 


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.
