K65 Red Switch Keyboard


Cherry MX Red Switches ; Great for gaming/typing ; Cord is braided

Corsair CH-9000040-NA


remember as along as your buying this form gaming and not writing books, then you should really enjoy using, the red switches are situational and the other features are really nice and it was on a good sale. i however would not buy this if i could only...

Excellent Keyboard


This is my second Corsair mechanical keyboard (the first being a K90), and I really enjoy them. They are much more comfortable while typing and gaming than the typical membrane keyboards, once you get used to them.

Feels great when typing and gaming. Very quick response and nice sound and feedback. Perfect compact size for my needs and very portable if necessary

None so far. The MSRP is a bit high, but with the recent sale and promotions, it was a great deal

snappy keys, easy cleaning, compact size with good weight


snappy keys, easy cleaning, compact size with good weight. since the board area beneath the keys isnt indented like many keyboards, it doesnt trap all the dust and other debris that is frustratingly hard to blow out normally (my favorite feature). the...

would be nice if it had some illumination colors, i miss the glowing blue leds of my razr black widow. that is my ONLY complaint. I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!! (this is my 9th keyboard, ive tried many)

I love it!


It's my first mechanical keyboard and my first tenkeyless and i love it!

Doesnt move at all, it's heavy ; Elevated keys, easy to clean by blowing air underneath ; Tenkeyless, compact, perfect for hours of gaming with your hands closer together ; It looks good, it feels good and durable

No cons

Mechanical bliss


I love this keyboard. My wife loves this keyboard. Everyone who has touched this keyboard has loved this keyboard.

Small footprint allows for use on keyboard trays while leaving enough room for a realistically sized mouse mat ; Sturdy construction from high quality materials ; Cherry Red switches (if you know, you care. If you don't, try it, then you will care) ;...

No backlight is about the only thing I can say this should've had ; Some people complain that the function keys are not mechanical, but honestly, I am a nerd by profession, and it is not bothersome in the slightest. You use function keys less than 1%...

Mixed feelings


I wouldn't buy another, but for the looks its pretty nice with my new Corsair exclusive system I built. Though I could have enjoyed the K30 just as much. Mechanical is overrated, and meant for those who enjoy the sound it makes?

The material is super clean, sturdy, and is attractive. The short form without a useless numpad is perfect for gaming

Well I think this is more of a preference con, but the keys don't feel quite as good as other mechanical keyboards ive had. Also the lack of any back lighting is kind of a bummer as the other corsair ones look really nice with it. The USB cable should...

Amazing mech.


This is by far the best keyboard I have owned. First mechanical keyboard I have owned and it's the perfect choice.

Cherry MX red switches are wonderful. Good for gaming ; Aluminum chasis feels great! also looks sleek and doesn't look out of place ; Raised keycaps makes for easy cleaning. and easy to replace keycaps ; The braided cable is a definite plus. Miles...
