Corsair CH-9000040-NA


Orange keys for AWSD

Those said keys (AWSD) have all just about failed causing a lot of problem in gaming . These are suppose to be red cherry switches and they started failing 3 months after getting the board .I was going to return it but they started working again. Don't...

Corsair CH-9000040-NA


The keycaps, while they do feel fairly sturdy, are pad printed, which generally means the printing will wear out more quickly than with other methods. Only time will tell how long it'll last. While not a problem for most people, the nonstandard botom...

Cherry MX Red switches ; Well constructed body, aluminum faceplate ; Tenkeyless design is space-efficient and looks great ; Detachable braided cable makes for easy and tangle free storage on the go ; Overall very aesthetically pleasing, looks and feels...

Pad printed keycaps ; Nonstandard bottom row keycap sizes ; Rear feet do not have rubber bottoms ; Front rubber pads are uneven with feet folded out

very nice keyboard


this is a very nice keyboard if you like compact keyboards. mouse pads keep on getting bigger and bigger the old 17 inch bulky keyboards just get in the way of everything. also the w,s,a,d keys are grey which is a plus because it highlights these keys...

very nice keyboard i like the compact design not big and bulky fits nicely on my keyboard tray

Mechanical keyboard


Quiet keys, deep keys(no strain on fingers), excellent feeling spacebar. Honestly also love that its made of of solid metal material. Seems very sturdy and will hopefully last for awhile. Also great size doesnt take up too much space

No num. pad...Though it is a compact

Great Quality, Great Price, Great Keyboard


Cherry MX Red mechanical keyboards are my favorite and Corsair does a great job of incorporating them into a solid and refined tenkeyless model. Perfect for a gamer or writer on the go. The softness of the keys and the light actuation point make for a...

Very solid feel. I love Corsair's vengeance series keyboards. They just feel great and last basically forever ; The audio control is nice to have on the keyboard and, of course, the windows key lock is always a great feature. I like how nice and...

Perhaps not the best keyboard for every game. No macro keys obviously, but it's a tenkeyless/compact so that's expected ; Volume control buttons sometimes stick. Nothing that can't be easily corrected though ; No backlighting, just so everybody knows

shocking experience


Going to contact Corsair for an RMA, but might resell what I get back for a Cooler Master unit with browns or blues. Switched from a Razer Black Widow Ultimate to this due to severely limited desk space and rarely using the 10-key. Also really like the...

Compact, sexy aluminum finish

Keyboard started shocking me after owning it awhile. Also seems like I have issues w/ key rollover. I'll type fast and shift actions get applied to the next key I hit, or letters get rearranged. Expect this with a membrane cheapy, but not a nice...

Still getting used to it


Maybe cherry reds aren't for me. What I didn't realize was how SENSITIVE the keys are (an aspect of the cherry mx red switches). My hand rests on the keyboard too heavily sometimes and I find myself jumping accidentally in FPS games. It still takes...

Great look ; Sturdy ; Typing feels great ; Shipping was amazingly fast

small nick on the board, not sure how that happened, could've been through shipping

Could have been better.


Aside from the ability to disable the windows key, this product has a notable lack of features not only from the keyboard itself but from the lack of accessories such as a key cap puller. The brushed aluminum looks great out of the box but gets dirty...

Durable brushed steel frame ; Cherry reds are very nice ; Windows lock key is very good for games, especially fps ; Full key rollover through usb ; Compact design and removable braided cable gives it portability

Ctrl and shift key registers twice on one key press on my keyboard ; Does not work in bios even when switched to bios mode ; No included key cap puller or other such accessories

Corsair K65


This was my first mechanical keyboard. Now that I have been using this for a little over a month, I don't think that I will be able to go back to the traditional keyboards. I love the cherry mx red switches. Thinking about getting the corsair m65 mouse!

Cherry MX Red Keyswitches. Removable braided cable. The windows lock key is great for gaming. Nice metal looking frame

USB hub would have been nice but it is understandable at this price point. I would have liked to have seen a key puller in the box

Great keyboard, compact size! First experience with red switches, which are a little bit too sensitive for me, so YMMV. The etched letters may deteriorate over time. I bought this keyboard while on sale (about $50) and would be a no-brainer at that...

Aluminum build ; Braided cable ; Attractive design

Reds may be a bit too sensitive for my tastes (not a fault of Corsair) ; A couple letters are disappearing from the keycaps (after about 6 months) ; No backlighting
