An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...

I think it's only the reds you can get like that. Personally I don't care about the logo I just want it in Browns

its just a bummer that this keyboard is clearly for people who care about looks (paying a premium for RGB leds) and the logo takes a step backwards.

 Logo? I dont give a damm about it. We will accustomed it. I want to change the colors and hear the click click click of my Blues :)

anyone know if Corsair will sell the old logo with brown switches?

That's what I really want :/

That's what I've been waiting for but no official response about it from Corsair :(

The old logo blues and reds switches are on stock at amazon atm for the original K70, but no browns. I've just noticed that Corsair is starting to ship new revisions of the K70 Red and blue LEDS with the Gaming branding and the textured keycaps, that means, as everyone says, the logo is staying at least for a while.

Eh it still doesn't bother me too much. I don't like the logo on the mouse, I thought the back was good before. I think too much light shows through on the mouse (at least in the picture I remember seeing) and it looks a bit cheap that way. Kinda glad I didn't wait until the mice came out cause I thought about it. But I needed a real mouse (after my old one died, and my old Logitech G5 backup died... then I was stuck with an old generic Dell mouse) and I went with another Saitek...er Madcatz R.A.T.7 (I got my original when it was still Saitek) and i'm satisfied once again.

But the logo on the Corsair RGB keyboards doesn't really bother me so much. I like the way the older logo looked more like it was punched out of the rest of the whole frame it's attatched to, where the new logo looks kinda hastily slapped on. But meh, it doesn't have any lights on it, and my focus won't be on it. Most of the time it'll be pretty dark in the room anyway, so i'll only be able to see it from whatever light the keyboard reflects onto it, and most of the time it'll probably be under the lip of my desk (cause I have this annoying keyboard tray on this old desk I got... hate keyboard trays, but there's no room on the desk due to DJ controller) or when I finally get to put it on the desk, whatever light reflects off the monitor. I don't really see it as that big a deal for me at least. My main focus will be on my pretty lights that I hope i'll get customized well to my liking.

 

My keyswitch tester came in today, little MAX Keyboard demoboard of red, black, blue, and brown switches. And for those curious here's my analysis of the keys (cause I don't think Linus or anyone else really do a good job of explaining it anymore)

 

The four switches I have actually feel about the same, as far as having a finger on each and just pressing away goes. There are still some differences and i'm sure it's all more noticeable when it comes down to a full keyboard of each switch, but I don't have the ability to test that sooooo...

 

There is a slight difference to me between the reds and blacks, the blacks do take more force to press down but people make it sound like it's more drastic than it really is. After prolonged use it might make a difference but, i'm not sure. They go down really smoothly though, in a really satisfying way actually.

 

Blues are nice, I love the way they feel. I can pretty much always feel the click inside when I press it down. I tried as hard as I could to press the key as lightly as I could to try and muffle the click sound a bit, but it doesn't really change in volume too much. If you get blues, you're going to be making a lot of noise. All the time. Period.

 

Browns, honestly I was expecting a bit more from them. There's much less of a noticeable bump in the pressing of the key (like it's much much less than the membrane keyboard i'm using right now) and it felt pretty much just like the red. That being said, the bump is there and dancing my fingers on each key (trying to sorta simulate typing a little bit on a particular switch) I could feel it, but not by much. But I do think I prefer it being there rather than the smooth feel of the red switches.

I can't test actuation points because it can't be plugged in to anything, but i'm assuming i'm going to like being able to lightly press the browns and feeling where they actuate rather than bottoming it out or guessing with each press how much i'm going to have to press it down. It's almost as if the Browns have a "soft bottom" to them as if the actuation point is bottoming it out when it's not. Overall I think it'll be a less fatiguing way to type when a certain someone in the room is trying to sleep, as i do try to be more quiet.

 

Speaking of quiet, the noise these switches have when using them on this demoboard. It's probably much different with a full keyboard, noticing videos about both a full keyboard just sounds louder overall. And i'm sure the acoustics are a bit different as well. But with what i'm given, browns actually seem to be quieter than reds are but just slightly. It seems the bump in the browns slows down the switch just slightly, or at least stifles the sound somehow. The red switch just has the key slam against the housing.

 

So yea... that's my thoughts. Just posting them if anyone else was curious. This keyboard is going to be my first mechanical so yea. I wanted to make sure I was getting the right switch for my money.

Question. On k70 RGB, you can set different color to key letter and different color at ground? Just wonder.

I'm afraid I don't understand your question.

No. The light comes from one source so u get same background colour and same key colour (what u want doesnt exist but good idea, hard to do because then LEDs would die a lot)

Just the luminocity (the strenght of colour) is different for background and key. Go watch Tek Syndicate review on youtube.

@Tygron u want them to fully explain cherry mx switches everytime they review a mechanical keyboard ?! They made videos about it, so did Logan and million other youtubers and they did their best.

This is something everybody has to experience first person to make the perfect decision. No need for repeating the same exact stuff again. :)

No I understand that. But in all the videos i've seen on Cherry MX switches, they still didn't really go into some of the detail i'd have like to have heard. I realize it'd be a bit ridiculous to expect a rundown of each switch and why and what it feels like and blah blah blah, and Linus has lately been doing a "I've already talked about this so just click here to go watch that" and I don't have a problem with that.

Was just stating my personal observations on some standalone switches and wanted to maybe add a little to what people might already think about how the switches differ from each other. I mean what Linus and Logan are saying isn't wrong no, and what i'm saying doesn't cover all the area they don't say. And I agree that it's something people need to try out for themselves before making a purchase, if they even care really. That's why the demoboards are made ^_^

 

I just wish there was a better way of describing it or something so that wasn't exactly necessary. There were a couple more options availible a year or so ago when I started looking for these demoboards, and now it seems like the only real products here are the two MAX Keyboard boards, and the one that Cooler Master has. And then availability on these boards is surprisingly low. Almost every time i'd look at CM's site for theirs it was sold out, and searching for it elsewhere didn't help really. And the MAX one would be sold out as well. I lucked out and saw these were in stock when I went looking for something else I needed at the time.

Anyone found somewhere that is actually shipping the K95 RGB blue switches? My preorder was supposed to ship 2 weeks ago and newegg says they still havent gotten them from Corsair yet. Amazon's page says ships in 1 to 2 months.

:(

 Lol epic rage foto! I dont wanna dissapoint you but i am afraid they will delay k95 as well. I want to contact to Corsair to see what really happends. In newegg they availability is for 31 December... I hope Scan.co.uk not trolling us. If at 17th november Scan says for further delay for 31 december, then i will be crazy for sure.
