    Re: News - Corsair and Cherry show off MX RGB Project keyboard at CES

    I wish Corsair would make a membrane version of the K70 - it's a lovely design. I've tried 4 mechanical keyboards from different manufacturers and found all Cherry switches to be as unreliable as hell. I gave up on them after getting my 4th Cherry keyboard that would often output 2-3 keypresses on a single stroke or just randomly not output anything sometimes. Say what you like about rubber dome keys but usually they work 100% for a good long time, I greatly prefer them.

    Thats unusual? Are you sure you're not just hovering around the actuation point a bit much?

    OT: I'm interested in the technology here but I'm pretty sure Corsair won't be releasing a product with it in a price range that I'll be willing to pay, I mean the K70 is already £120 and really knocking on the upper limit of what I am willing to pay.

    I'll stick with my CMStorm Quickfire TK for now though as it serves me well.

    How about something like this?

    K70 prices have been as low as £89.99 on Scan's Today Only offers, keep your eye out for a deal if you're after one of those keyboards.

    Just noticed that the numbers in the top row aren't lit up, only the symbols above them (just like my K70). I hope they can sort that out as the numbers are, most of the time, more important then the symbols... Sounds small but it's weird seeing the symbols with no numbers....

    The silver and grey version of the K70 are unnecessarily expensive given that the black and red version (the one I wan't but with blue/brown switches) is normally 20 pounds cheaper.

    Without VAT, also due noting I dislike red switches and blues would end with me being thrown out of my house

    I keep my eye on those offers but the slightly cheaper CM Storm line meets my needs just fine and matches the rest of my stuff more nicely that corsairs keyboards do.

    I am about 95% certain that the price I saw was including VAT, usually on Scan's site they show the ex-VAT price in black and inc-VAT price in a larger blue font, you can usually tell immediately which one you're looking at. But it was the black model with Cherry reds so it probably wouldn't suit you anyway.

    Yeah I've definately seen the red version drop that low but the Brown switch version holds around £110 pretty consistently it seems.

    I'm honestly disappointed the CM Storm Quickfire Ultimate is only available in the UK with the red lighting ¬_¬ I'd love that for my desk and then assign my TK to LAN and such.

    Corsair does, it's called the Raptor K50!
