    Oh, Corsair. I love you. (Also, I'm on my mobile at work so I can't watch the video)

    But that is a lot of money for a keyboard...

    Re: EntaLive: Corsair's RGB keyboards are almost ready

    PCB has gotten a complete overhaul to accommodate the per key rgb lighting.
    Add 2 extra lines/key, plus a controller able to address each led separately.
    The stuff inside is way more expensive than the usual controllers.

    So, in the end, it seems not that expensive in comparison to the non rgb versions.

    If one looks at the whole picture, it surely is expensive, but if people only look at the price, we'd all be writing on rubber dome keyboards.

    I want one, but fear the price will be too high.

    Re: EntaLive: Corsair's RGB keyboards are almost ready

    Seems cool, wonder if the software allows for individual key colouring or have templates built in. Even better for an option to change colour with Windows background cycles and themes. Like what Razer has offered. Given that the K95 launched at around £140 and now goes for £118, I am guessing by or after Chrismass these boards would be retailing for £120-£130.

    Hmmmm

    £150 for my Christmas present I think!

    Hopefully it will have fallen in price a bit by then, I wonder if they will change colours in patterns to music...

    lol Christmas tunes should be interesting to watch

    Re: EntaLive: Corsair's RGB keyboards are almost ready

    Look nice,
    While the additional electronics are not trivial, they are not complex or expensive - large RGB panels for signs etc. come to less than 20p a pixel for LED and driver to make.

    Will be interesting to see how good a controller they have, limited number of pixels at only 102 or so, but video playback could be interesting !

    Looks awesome, but it's a shame that it costs that much because I was really wanting to buy one, but that is just too much. Great-looking keyboard though!

    As you can tell from my choice of peripheral, I'm very much into my gimicky crap with pritty pritty lights... but even I would expect a lot more for that kind of cash!!

    Thing is, you have to ask yourself, do you really need the dynamic selection of colour, or would you rather pick a single colour and save between £40-70 depending on your preferred brand and requirements?

    I suspect the people who say they would rather have the dynamic colour option are a significant minority. If the difference was like up to £30 MAX the story would be different.
