its a bit of a non starter, no dedicated macro keys, no dedicated media keys.

apart from that cherry red are noisier than romer g but that's a personal preference.

2nd function media keys are so lame and having to bind macro on normal keys sucks too, if you are playing games like rts sometimes f keys are control groups so you need them which is where they think you are going to bind macro realistically.

It doesn't even have dedicated profile buttons which are great when you play a game where you might switch between loadouts or characters and jump between macros and assignments.

the price is too high when you could get a far superior Logitech g910 for £83.

the lighting is even better on a g910 due to the romer switches and the extensive options for individual key and programmable effects.
I've had a STRAFE RGB and a G910 and one thing to point out is size wise the G910 is huge, I sold it and went with a G810 - which is nice and compact.
Had this with the silent switches, never really liked the keyboard to be honest and the corsair software was really difficult to work with. Went to razer and although I think the corsair had slightly better build quality the razer software was world's easier to work with.
I was looking at this last week, popped in Maplins (closing down sale) and got an x display Hyper X alloy. Told the manager that unspeakable things had happened to it and haggled it down to £50. It was in excellent condition, removed and disinfected every key.
I've a G910 and a older non RGB Corsair cherry red keyboard. From a typing perspective there is only one winner and it isnt the Logitech, I have no regrets buying it - for gaming its fine - but just to counter the spiel that the G910 is "far superior" - as ever it depends what you are looking for.
Great keyboard,but i'd highly recommend Scan's refurbished section. Factory refurbished by Corsair and in perfect condition.

You can get a K70 RGB Lux with all the media keys for about £85, and in my opinion its a much better deal.

Unfortunately the g910 wins and your argument is void because the name of the keyboard is Corsair Gaming not Corsair Typist.

Now I'm not claiming one is better than the other for typing, personally i prefer Romers for typing but that's a personal preference and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

You have to admit since its a gaming keyboard it really could use at least some dedicated keys for profile switching and macro.

Another point i would make is if we were discussing typing keyboards then really we wouldn't be looking at cherry reds as cherry brown or blue are better options dependant on how much noise you want to make blue is noisier but best from a tactile perspective.
If you're looking for corsair mechanical keyboards check out the refurbs on Scan.co.uk - grabbed a k65 RGB mx red for £60 last week. Perfect condition couldn't be happier.

They have the keyboard in this post refurbished for £74.98

Yeah - because *everybody* switches out their keyboards after their gaming session. In fact, I have separate keyboards for moon phases.
I do agree on the function keys but then I assume they shift a fair few of these otherwise they wouldn't make them? The point is if you can try before you buy because out of just about any purchase keyboards do come down to personal preference - and therefore personally I would never state that one keyboard wins over another unless it absolutely beasts it (which isnt the case her IMHO)

at no point do I say anything about switching keyboards. you made the point that the GAMING KEYBOARD wasn't the best for TYPING, i just pointed out if your main concern is typing a gaming keyboard isn't the best option.

since the romers and cherry reds both have same actuation distance and weight the typing difference should be minimal, the cherry reds just have lower stability as the base switch isn't as wide, the lettering isn't as clear when lit up either and they are a little noisier.
I have to assume that since you think the g910 is bad for typing you probably have a spark rather than a spectrum as that had terrible key caps.


There is a bit in the middle of your reply where you go off in a tangent about try before you buy... no idea what that's about, its written like you are countering something i wrote, like its a counter point but its not countering anything, its just ramble.


And its actually a fact the g910 spectrum beasts the Corsair. why? because i can turn the volume up and down while gaming without having to switch function, I can have macros on dedicated keys, its great even if you are just text blocking commonly said phrases in fps to save on typing. when I switch loadout, hero, class, i can hit a different profile memory.

Please do remember your original statement was
"I've a G910 and a older non RGB Corsair cherry red keyboard. From a typing perspective there is only one winner and it isnt the Logitech, I have no regrets buying it - for gaming its fine - but just to counter the spiel that the G910 is "far superior" - as ever it depends what you are looking for."

it seems your main concern is for typing.... on a gaming keyboard, that's like being most concerned with boot space in a supercar, looking for a committed relationship with a prostitute, or trying to reduce gun violence by encouraging more people to get guns.
I was merely pointing out that whilst people may buy a keyboard for gaming there are other use cases that it may need to meet and that has got to be part of the decision process. Unless you are lucky enough to be able to dedicate a rig to gaming and nothign else. Nice "mind reading" on what keyboards I have (you are wrong) - and for someone who accuses someone of rambling lord knows what you are talking about in your last sentence!

its ok, you obviously didn't reply so i wouldn't get notified of a reply, you knew you were wrong, you wanted the last word. if you don't get what I'm saying in the last sentence I'm very sorry for you.

it just seems you want a keyboard with no gaming specific features that's aimed at typing... that to most would be a typist keyboard.

anyway you aren't worth any more time, you iinability to understand basic logic means any argument i put forward that is intelligent you will not understand.
bye
