This keyboard is the type of thing that will last you hundereds if not thousands of hours over the coming years. All while in comfortRecently upgrading from a Typical cheap membrane gaming keyboard its obvious to think that anything else would be better.Before I purchased this I originally bought a refurbished k70 RGB. During that time I was extremely conflicted between buying the Logitech G910 Spark but I was so impressed by the quality of the K70 RGB I immediatley sold it on and paid the full £200 for the k95, and let me say, this keyboard is incredible and you likley wont find something better for the price.Pros:+ Absolutley outstanding build quality but not too hefty in weight.+ Cherry MX speed switches are a dream to type on, my hands arent large but you will find yourself constantly double pressing keys at first, but once you get used to them your fingers glide across the keyboard like a piano+ RGB is incredible and the added lightbar over the K70 is an awesome touch, as of this purchase (Sep 2017) the Corsair CUE software seems to be working very well for me.+Super strong and thick braided cable+Macro keys, great for quick functions for programmers.+Soft dual textured wrist wrest (couldn't believe how much this helped, DO NOT buy a high end keyboard if it at least doesn't come with a wrist wrest)+Media controls, saves me from having to reachn over my desk to adjust my DAC.+comes with awesome grey rubber gripped Wasd keys and keycap puller.Cons:These are more nitpicks than glaring technical issues.-USB passthrough is only 2.0 Standard, it would be nice if it was at least 3.0 but 2.0 polling rates are still sufficient for avoiding mouse latency and compatability.-My amazon purchase did not come wrapped in extra protective packaging, only the retail box, as a result via transit or storage some minor visual blemishes and marks on the keyboard were apparent. Most notable a somewhat deep chip into the corsair LED logo, it's not visible in the dark so it isn't too much of an issue.Neutral:/ The keyboard font is a bit too gamerish and bold, it would be nice if the original font stayed from previous gens. It does however help to see it in the dark/ I have no expericence with Longevity of Corsair keyboards or Cherry MX switches, I will update this review if this keyboard ever becomes worthy of an RMA.TLDR: An avid programmer, gamer and typing companion that will serve you for years to come, with excellent resale value.If you really don't want to drop the £200 then buy something like a refurb K70 RGB for half the price, it will have 90% of the existing features.
Overall you can read all good things about is on the internet. I will focus only on bad experience and reason why I am returning this product. The software provided by Corsair is very gimmicky and after 4 hours (!) of reading forums, watching videos and checking the manual I failed to do 2 basic things. 1. Custom assign colours to the keys, no advanced option appears to be available. Customer support horrible, online chat located in US unavailable, waited 2 hours in the cue, it kept kicking me to the last place. Also Corsair Customer Support has really bad reviews. 2. Before I bought the product I read it was possible to custom-disable certain keys i.e. NumLock or CAPS. In up-to-date version of the software it was not possible, only preset 4 options available. None of them included aforementioned keys.Hours of frustration led me to sending it back and now the new Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum keyboard is on the way. I hardly ever give rather bad reviews but this time I am sorry, Corsair did not leave me much choice.23.01.2019, UPDATE: I have just received e-mail from Corsair Customer Support after 2 days of waiting. The replied that ADVANCED mode which allows to customise button colour assignment and other useful functionalities for which I bought the keyboard WERE REMOVED IN THE LATEST VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE. I am sorry, It is not a standard of very expensive keyboard I expected from otherwise high quality piece of hardware. Returning the item.
The K95 is my third Corsair Mechanical keyboard and also the best yet.It must be added that I do not use it for gaming, but for writing and it serves my purposes admirably, being quick and precise in its acceptance of typed inputs. The Cherry MX RGB Brown keys are ideal for this purpose, making it clear, on the basis of touch, that a key-press has taken, without the resounding "clack" evident in traditional keyboards.Personally, I prefer a static lighting display rather than the ripple effects that are accessible (and which I find distracting). It is also my preference to light keys in accordance with their purpose, which makes keyboard navigation much more fluid on one that offers such a wide array of possibilities. Although I cannot offer any claim to an understanding of the keyboard's attributes in relation to gaming, I would imagine that it represents the best available on the basis of responsiveness and visual effectiveness.I would therefore not hesitate in recommending it to those, such as myself, who require one of the best keyboards available for writing, especially when speed and accuracy are essential.
