Refurbished Corsair keyboards are usually in great condition. Good price.

Right, I generally don't buy refurbished electronics, but I got this keyboard a few years ago for about $90 and it was in perfect shape, impossible to tell it's not new. And worked perfectly since.

My 2 cents on these. My brother's and I got the RGB lux model. At first they seemed fine, but then after a year of use the key caps started to break. The problem with this is that Corsair uses proprietary key caps. So you can't go to a third party supplier to replace them with.
The key caps are poorly made and will all have to be replaced at some point. So far I have gotten Corsair to send free replacements key caps, but who knows how much longer that will continue. You're better off paying a bit more and buying a quality keyboard.

Can you guys enlighten me a bit. I have been using mostly Logitech keyboards non mechanical for my entire life pretty much. My last one I owned was the G510. I bought this today and for some reason I don't feel comfortable using it. Does it take a while to get used to the mechanical aspect of the gaming keyboard ?
Im a light gamer nothing too crazy.

Thanks :)

I switched to a mechanical keyboard a while ago and I like it a lot better for typing. I like it for gaming too, but the difference isn't all that noticeable for gaming.

The one drawback is that most of these keyboards are really loud when you type. I got a cherry MX blue one and the clicking sound when you press each key really annoyed my wife. So I returned that one and got a Cherry MX Silent one which I'm using now. It's still a bit louder than a standard keyboard, but it's quiet enough that it doesn't really bother her. I actually liked that clicking sound myself... but I can understand how it could be annoying for anyone listening to you type.

I think the cherry mx blue is the loudest... and the cherry mx reds are supposed to be more quiet... but the cherry mx silent is supposed to be the quietest of the mechanical keyboards without putting the spacers in between every key to dampen the sound.

What do you not like about it? Membrane keyboards are hard to type on, whereas mechanical keyboards are more accurate and more fun to type on. Mechanical keyboards are good for both typing and gaming, i don't game much but typing with one is way more convenient than a membrane keyboard.
