It's a good price, however I wasn't a fan of the key feel or the keystrokes repeating on certain letters.
Totally love mine and it cost a lot more
Hot. £100 for a keyboard is alright
Good price but I'm a red key person myself
Overclockers have the Cherry blue version for £99.95 (without delivery charge, 3 in stock - I received mine today):

What’s special about this keyboard? Seem pricey


Compared to what? Most backlit gaming keyboards with cherry mechanical keys are pricey. If you're comparing it to a membrane keyboard (same tech as used in remote controls) then it will seem very pricey.
I could have got this for £35 when i was working for Currys but i was a dumbass back then and never understood keyboards. Boss just asked everyone there is this keyboard lying around in the back and barcodes not working and not registered to stock who wants it £35 quid.

There really isn't that much to understand about keyboards its an input peripheral for the computer, i have a relatively basic Labtec keyboard which ive owned for about 3 years now and it does the job just fine.

Imagine a remote control with mechanical keys. Heavenly.

Am not a gamer so was wondering compared to a standard £5 keyboard.

There's a fair bit of difference. Main things being the key actuates before it hits the bottom the stroke unlike standard rubber dome keyboards that need to make full contact at the bottom which also stops unregistered key presses (ghosting). Other things include build quality life expectancy of the keys.
Beware Corsair - once something breaks you're abandoned. I've been trying to get the "keyboard leg kit" (it has a Corsair part number, etc.) for a while now and they just couldn't be bothered stocking it - no vendor has it anywhere in the world that I've tried and Corsair can't seem to bother to put some stock together and just don't care. $200 USD K70 is now hobbled by a piece of plastic the thickness of a paper clip snapping.

Took 3 weeks for them to finally get something sorted through their ticket system. Phone support is useless because it all goes by the ticket system. A nightmare.

sounds like a job for a 3D printer?

if only I had one! I'm not entirely sure how strong most 3D prints are these days either - the feet have to support weight, they're supporting a heavy keyboard with constant impact on a piece of plastic that's the width of a thick paperclip (and not as strong).
