    (Disclaimer: I have the older K70RGB)

    Anyone who wants to use these on Linux or Mac might like to use "CKB" instead of CUE.

    CKB has a thread on Corsair's support forums, so while it may not be "official" software, it has Corsair's blessing.

    Still waiting for a mechanical keyboard in a more ergonomic form.

    Re: Corsair launches LUX mechanical keyboard range

    Alas, any mechanical switched ergonomic ones are either wildly different from the norm (instead of just being more ergonomic) or complex DIY builds.

    The truly ergonomic looks the closest thing, but the few people I've known to have one in the UK slate it and the company. What I really want, is a ten keyless MS Ergonomic 4000 with mechanical keys - I'd also accept some programmable buttons in the centre for commonly used coding keys {};.

    Re: Corsair launches LUX mechanical keyboard range

    Launches? These keyboards have been launched for months. I remember back in June (or perhaps even May) wondering about the "LUX" bit (soap came to mind there as well ) and then finding out that they have a new font, better lighting (apparently) and a USB2 pass-through.

    Re: Corsair launches LUX mechanical keyboard range

    A year and a half later (Jan 2018) I've just bought me a K65 LUX tenkeyless. Very exciting.
    It's replacing my trusty old Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000. I've put up with only being able to move my mouse millimetres due to lack of space. My KB/M is on a pull-out section of my desk: very limited.

    Thinking of getting a large gaming surface to fit into this space. Anyone else think these are worth getting?
