    Depends on the audience. There is a market for decent keyboards, but they are trying to make it mass market. If you spend all day at a PC, decent interface kit makes a lot of sense. And it should last very well.

    I do not think there are any non professional gamers who will benefit from optical keys with reduced latency. Is it worth spending some time looking at the different types of key switches? Oh yes - if you give me Cherry Red, I try and break my fingers as I learnt to touch type on keys with a distinct tactile feedback. Therefore my muscle memory was developed with blue/brown.

    There is definitely a market for expensive keyboards which (for example) store macros within the keyboard itself so they work on any machine without drivers and are designed to be portable. If you are a professional nerd and go between sites or machines a lot, plugging in a keyboard you know and is set up for your workflow is really worthwhile. They are expensive for so many reasons.

    I think I spent £130 on my keyboard back in 2013. It'll probably last until the USB standard dies.

    I bought a Logitech MX Revolution mouse in 2006 which cost around £70. Still going and still an excellent mouse. I expect I'd have had a few cheapo mice in that time.

    There are definitely reasons to spend such money on interface devices, but you mustn't see them as being disposable products. What these companies do is take the decent "buy once, cry once" products and then try and convince you that you need to upgrade it a year down the line with their next "killer feature". Therein lies the problem.

    I paid £125 for a Filco Majestouch 2, an excellent, solidly built keyboard that, at only 2 years old, is probably just nicely run in. Should go on and on and on...

    I have 3 Ducky keyboards and they were all over £100 so there are people who will pay for what they deem to be quality products. They will in all likelihood last me years and years and I use them a lot so I will get my monies worth over time. Yes they aren't for everyone but that doesn't mean they aren't worth the money.

    Re: Corsair K60 RGB Pro

    I’d quite like a wireless version with G1-5 macro keys on the left side please

    And if you’re listening, Corsair, a wireless version of the M65 Elite pretty please.

    I’m trying to cut down on wires while I’m working from home on a small desk... can you tell?

    Re: Corsair K60 RGB Pro

    Far too expensive for a "budget" mechanical keyboard - which this absolutely is with those switches & lack of features.....the budget big brand mechanical keyboards start at about £70-£80 - heck even Corsair had a model in this price range until recently.

    I don't think this is worth it - especially when you can get a Huntsman for around the same price. I am using the Huntsman TE (10key less version) which cost me £100, but has Razers newer silent optical switches, which are a joy to game on. All for less than this one.

    I wonder if they are examining the second hand market and going "yeh we can push prices up"? These kinds of keyboards are great second hand buys as they are so rugged.

    Re: Corsair K60 RGB Pro

    People, you have to think about what they include for the price!

    Corsair are the only keyboard manufacturer I know of that includes free key chatter within a month of your warranty expiring! That's real value for money, right there.
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!
