I`m a bit confused about the model number being CH-9101010-FR though? Will it be French as other sites show as model CH-9101010-UK and are selling for £150 on Ebay.

A bit confused about my own deal but for £40 it looks a bargain. Other retailers have Corsair K70`s for a lot higher price.

Wow.

Looks like you will get a French layout based on the model number and pictures. CH-9101010-FR

Well the buy box is via a 3rd party seller who will dispatch from France. Is it possible the Amazon one will be a different model as in UK which we want?

EDIT - Just found the CH-9101010-UK model on Amazon for £153 so is looking like a French layout for sure now

Picture showing QWERTY layout so I`m very confused... oO

Can you just pull the keys off, put them back on in the UK layout and set the keyboard to UK in the OS?

Oops, was looking at the CH-9101010-UK model..... X)

Not sure I want a French keyboard.

Ah, no £ sign. Entree instead of enter, etc. Bargain price, though.

Can it be re-programmed to work as QWERTY ?


Just found this online, appears it can be done:
You can swap the keys themselves around but that would just mislabel them.
However you can change them through windows, but you better hope you remember the layout of QWERTY
Step 1: Go to the Start button and open "Control Panel"
Step 2: Choose the option "Clock, Language and Region"
Step 3: Select "Regional and Language Options" and in the "Installed Services" section, click "Add"
Step 4: If your keyboard is set to "French" (AZERTY) change it to "English US/UK" and if your keyboard is set to an English language (QWERTY), change the language to "French" (AZERTY).
Step 5: In the "Keyboard" section, choose "QWERTY" or "AZERTY" and apply the changes by clicking "OK

What do we do people?

The other seller FreeShopping dispatches it from France so it's pretty much guaranteed to be the French version. I'll pass.

Not sure... it's very cheap!
Really pleased with my K70 Red, tempted to buy this and switch the keys over as mine lacks custom RGB lighting (not that I need it).

I said I'll pass but I don't know now. It's extremely cheap. It'll probably be cancelled. Ordered.

Well I ordered one. If it`s a French layout which is highly likely I will send it back. The first image does show a QWERTY layout after all! so shouldn't be a problem returning I imagine...

I've done the same, I currently have a K40. I hope a mechanical keyboard is worth the upgrade. :P

Frank nice find! Can you find me a cheap French HGST Ultrastar drive say 6tb?

No longer available... Sacré bleu!

I've had various language keyboards from all over the place and never had a problem changing the layout via windows.

Even if it were a problem then there are plenty of keymapping apps available to taylor it to your hearts content

If had have seen this an hour ago i'd have had one. Damn!

thanks bought one 15min ago if it French it's definitely going back

I`ll just put some sticky letters over the keys to make it UK layout and adjust settings in my Windows. bob's your uncle

So would this tool be sufficient for changing the letters around?

Gone now.

Pretty sure the K70 comes with a key cap removal tool. I'm sure mine came with one to change the WASD to optional 'gamer' keys.

You can lever them out with a ruler or teaspoon no problem.

K70 RGB Lux are so hard to find and expensive ffs

got an email confirmation from amazon cs that the keyboard will be a uk format one

I'll believe it when I'll get it though, should be ok for returning anyway

​so you recon they will actually deliver it? did you email CS yourself or is it just a generic email?

Knowing Amazon probably not. Price errors usually slip through when the item is in stock which this wasn't.

I think it's often not a price error. Amazon seems to automatically adjust prices. It looks like when things don't sell they keep reducing the price incrementally each day. This often happens on stuff that's poorly described or where the pictures are incongruent with the item.

I've even noticed some unscrupulous ebay sellers list these items with a bit of a markup and drop ship the directly from Amazon. You look at their feedback and people are confused their item came from Amazon as a gift, or that the seller decided the item was no longer available (presumably the price had gone back up after being sold on Amazon). If you want an example I paid £30.98 for this uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Ilf…0.2 I reckon I've saved about £1,000 on photo paper buying it this way compared with other sellers.
