Spoke to Scan.co.uk about my order, and they said Corsair rep has spoke to them about the firmware issues, and held it back until 17th November.... so I changed my order to get the old logo.

So it is definately 17/11 for my MX RED. 37 days counting !

Dammit! Yeah my preorder also got pushed back to november. The site says the 4th. Originally it was supposed to be the 14th of october. Makes me wonder if maybe they're doing some stuff with the logo again from the backlash. I personally don't really care. I just want my keyboard.

Somebody mentioned firmware issues and yes they do produce keyboards with old sail logo too. I wish this was the last time they delay it because its getting very annoying.

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.

I just only now saw it was delayed till 17 NOVEMBER, and then realized that we're only October... :(

That did't stop Scan.co.uk from already charging me for the preorder :/ at least amazon waits till they already got the thing in stock.

That's no moon, that's a death ball !

Amazon has been asking over £165 for k70 and calling it "multi colour" keyboard. Thats disgusting imo.

But what about the hype train then?

The surprise factor is lacking when it is announced. 

 

If they keep quiet about it you actually get excited when something gets released.

From what I've been told by different companies, Corsair has held back shipments globally, which means you'll be lucky to find any.

Similar story, couldn't deal with Corsair's incompetence so I just skipped RGB entirely and went with a CM Quickfire Rapid.
