    Multi-coloured Mechanical Keyboard

    I have just seen on the Razer Site the "RAZER BLACKWIDOW ULTIMATE CHROMA", which is kind of odd as I thought Corsair currently has rights to the RGB/Muti-coloured keyboard for the Cherry MX.

    Do note that I have seen that Rosewill in the US has a Kailh RGB switch keyboard.

    So does this mean Corsair where silly for waiting till September 2014 to release a keyboard that its competition will be releasing at the same time.

    Razer's own-brand switches are rebranded Kailh. Not as good as Cherry.

    Despite their claims to the contrary. I can't load the page due to some stupid restriction on the company IT filter, but they were claiming 60 million keystrokes before failure at one point, when Kailh were typically 20 million. Cherry state 50 million.

    Re: Multi-coloured Mechanical Keyboard

    The hilarity of Krapilh switches and their non Gold plating aside, it still begs the question WTF is Corsiar waiting for if these RGB switches if these switches are already being rolled out by their competion. Also why does't these companies improve the mx keys and add rubber/silicone to the bottom to mask the bottoming out.
