    So, have the Apple-like Corsair hold on Cherry RGB switches been lifted, with this product being the first in a series of several soon to be released? If so, it's long overdue. As nice as Corsair peripherals might be, the fact that they don't do additional key layouts was something that stopped me from ever truly wanting their keyboards as I've used non-native layouts and while they certainly work, they're not as pleasant as native layouts.

    I'd love a full height enter key; we can't have everything

    However £150+ for a keyboard is something I struggle to understand so I appreciate why they might not tailor it to my requirements.

    I think it all depends on your usage as to whether you can justify it, much like the idea that if you spend a lot of time driving, you can justify spending more on a car. Ignoring pro-gamers and rich kid gamer wannabes, if you spend all day every day typing or similar, the amount you spend extra over the life of the keyboard is nothing if it makes things even the tiniest bit easier/better. Personally, I too couldn't justify that much (and I 'm a writer!) - for the difference I'd take a mid-range keyboard and put the money difference into a better screen.

    I've always said that you should focus on getting the best devices with which you directly interface - namely the keyboard, mouse and monitor. The latter is less important now (in terms of reading the majority of TFT screens aren't too dissimilar when sat square on), but I maintain that the keyboard and mouse should be the foremost upgrades you should make. Obviously that's not necessarily the most expensive, but one which works best for you.

    Sadly for many they are a mere afterthought, with the cheapest option being tacked on to a build at the last minute.
