    I got a k95 for Christmas and haven’t opened it yet luckily. Maybe return/exchange it for one of these. Any news on when we could buy one of the k95 rgb?

    …I’m pissed. I bought a K95 not that long ago where my one of my only complaints was it wasn’t customizable colors and NO mechanical keyboard on the market had customizable colors, to my knowledge. Well damn. Now they come out with this. Wonder if Corsair would let me sidegrade/upgrade to this when I end up having to RMA my keyboard for failing backlights.

      failing backlights

      I wonder if there is a single person out there that doesn’t have this problem. G9, Num+, NumLock, right CTRL and some other keys are done for only few months after the purchase. And keyboard WAS expensive.
