    CrustyOldFart got a reaction from omenz321 in An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...   
    This will be my first mech keyboard but from descriptions and YouTube guides to switch types, I'm going for brown. I think I'd like the tactile feel on my fingertips as keys register before bottoming out, but don't think I'll need the clicky sound of the blues. I may even put o rings under the keys available from a few suppliers for mech keyboards so I don't have to hear the key bottoming if I do press them all the way down.

    Yea I'm getting one as soon as brown switches come out regardless of the bad reviews. This KB is cutting edge and I must have it. I always take reviews with a grain of salt, many of the problems will be fixed with firmware and software updates and I love the challange of tinkering and figuring out new things. As for bad reviews regarding actual hardware issues, don't seem to be as many and Corsair genuinely seems to want to make things right. I also wonder how many bad reviews were out of impatience in learning the software from people expecting easy plug and play, without taking time to learn how it works. As for the lights being bright enough or color diluting between keys, I dont need it super bright, just to be able to read my keys in low-light/no-light situations (I like to game in a darkened room); and from reading reviews it appears for some that the color dilution may be result of having keys assigned to more than one profile or zone casing two different colors to be assigned to sames keys simultaneously. Ex a key assigned to red in one zone and white in another overlapping zone causing both red and white to be triggered for the key simultaneously and resulting in pink. I'm hoping I don't eat my words though after I actually get mine lol

    It looks like more recent reviews are turning out pretty good, though, going off of those Amazon and Newegg links.

    So apparently Amazon stopped selling these and a new version is coming out with an end of the month release. Concerned new owners of the K70 rgb have been assured their keyboards are fine and new one only has a minor cosmetic change. Per an earlier post, I'm pretty sure Corsair is retiring the Vengeance brand and the K## rgb keyboards coming later this month will branded as Corsair Gaming rather than Vengeance. The logo/emblem on the keyboard is reportedly different.

    I agree with renz62, any official date for browns/blues? Or is it just some random day late september/early october? If there were pre-orders for them I wouldn't worry about it but...

    Besides the gimmick of color waves, I'm really interested in assigning different colors to zones of keys for gaming, such as movement keys one color, equipment and weapons keys another, voice/comm keys another, function keys another, etc, with the thought that may actually assist in gameplay.
