hi there i was contemplating to whether i should buy this keyboard, but i heard from a mate who works at a computer shop about the software of this keyboard. Apparently the software isnt really that great and it actually wrecks the whole keyboard?
can you shine some light on this please if you have any idea what im talking about.
thank you :)

I can vouch for the software not being great. It's entirely usable, but you need to stumble around in the dark for a little bit before you work it out.

On the upside, once the macro is programmed, it will run off the keyboard. That is, you can move the keyboard to a linux machine that doesn't have the driver/software installed and the macros keep working.

I can't say the software ruins the keyboard, but it is pretty sub standard >.<

Makes sense, thanks. As an owner, do you believe that the benefits justify the cost?

I have a SteelSeries 6G v2 and it's been great, only had it for 3 months, but it's great and my wrists don't hurt like they did on my old kb

From mow on I'll always invest in a mechanical kb for all of my computers

Just a heads up for everyone reading this review, if you don't need all the Macro keys, the Corsair K60 Mechanical keyboard is currently on sale on Amazon.com for $90 and free shipping.

It's a good looking kit, but not worth it for $160 retail, especially when the full keyboard isn't even mechanical, I'll never understand Corsair for doing this hahaha

But it does look pretty amazing, congrats on your purchase =)

Hello
Great review and presentation.
A couple of questions please:
I've got to replace a Logitech G510 because of software conflicts which are driving me nuts.
As the layout of the K90 is very very similar to the G510 (and for my needs it's perfect) I need to know whether the software is a derivation/modification of the Logitech software.
I really want the mechanical keys and I

This is one of the keyboards I am considering buying. Why do these KBs have to be so damn ugly?

I've heard from Corsair directly and thay have nothing to do with or contact with Logitech.
That's brilliant for me and I'm going ahead and buying a K90 today.

Great review. Thanks for sharing. I've seen a few reviews of this keyboard around the web, and your concerns match theirs. They all say it's a great keyboard let down by the non-mechanical keys.

K95 is out. It is completely mechanical. Adjustable/key-by-key lighting. and I think the colour is much better.
