Great functionality with the controllable keys to the left, and great feel with the Cherry RED switches. Stylish, too.
Love this keyboard. But very pricey. If you have the money, go for it. But I wouldn't save up for it.
This is my first mechanical keyboard. It has Cherry Reds. The software it comes with is pretty powerful on its own, and there is an SDK that you can toy around with if you're looking to be a poweruser of your keyboard's LEDs. I downloaded it but haven't had the time to mess around with it.
The main issue is that sometimes the keyboard doesn't work when the computer boots up from an off state (not sleep mode). For me it's not enough for me to want to return it as I can easily access the on-screen keyboard to log in to get the keyboard to become recognized, but I do think I'll look elsewhere as it's a problem that I could just not be having.
A smaller issue is that only 'basic' types of LED functionality work from the hardware alone. Gradient types require the application to be open, and can lead to your keyboard looking kind of funny for instance when booting your computer up.
Come on. Its beautiful. No LEDs have failed me. One acts up (#4 key) rarely but i dont mind.
Loses a star for price. Otherwise a great RGB keyboard, which changes colors with the Corsair Link software.
