Not a huge fan of MX Red switches, but that seems like a nice keyboard. Fair price too.Quote

I like the design of the keyboard and it's Corsair IMO you can't go wrong.Quote

Personally, I love the design, but it would have been good if it was offered with a variety of Cherry MX switches, to cater for everyone's preferencesQuote

Not impressed. Mainly because of the design (a bit too shouty/GAMER for me) and you can get a decent keyboard from someone like ducky, who will give you more customization options if thats your thing. Heck, even CMstorm who make basic looking keyboards but will take a right beating and won't fall apart a few months later. Thats something I've yet to really experience with Corsair peripherals myself.Quote
