Im VERY picky when it comes to keyboards, though mostly because I like the low travel of things like Laptop keyboards, ive never really liked mechanical keyboards because of there like 5-6mm total travel vs that of the standard laptop at 2mm travel, so when I tried this with its 3mm of total travel I gave it a shot, I can still tell the difference between this and a laptop keyboard but its close enough, its the first mechanical keyboard I have ever liked, and with the power of iCue when it comes to lighting and custom keysets PER GAME this it bar none the best keyboard for me.

Bought this keyboard on sale for $85 and I don't recommend buying this keyboard at full price. Overall build quality is good, the speed switches are smooth and responsive, and the RGB lighting is decent, however this keyboard has several glaring issues that makes it difficult to recommend. Corsair keyboards are known to have a non-standard bottom row that are unable to be swapped out with third party key caps, this might not seem like a problem if you have no intention of swapping them out, however the proprietary keys in particular are pretty terrible, and Corsair does not sell different key caps or stabilizers to fix this.
The space bar that comes with this keyboard has a textured feel to it that is unpleasant to use. The bottom keys are sloped inwards, with the edge facing towards you angled upwards in a way that causes your thumb to scrape against the edge. This sloped angle combined with the rough texture on the space bar makes it almost painful to use.
Corsair also uses proprietary stabilizers that can't be replaced and are of low quality. The stabilizers aren't a problem for general typing usage, but when gaming they cause the shift key to have a very mushy and unresponsive feel.
The keyboard also comes with an attachable wrist rest and extra textured WASD and QWER keys meant for gaming. The wrist rest has a mediocre plastic build and has a slightly sticky and rough feel. The extra gaming keys are raised upwards to a ridiculous degree (almost twice the height of the regular keys) and are just plain unusable. The raised keys get in the way and prevent you from comfortably using any of the surrounding keys and they stick out like a sore thumb, which defeats the point of having a low profile keyboard.
