Corsair K100 Air Wireless Keyboard $334.99

Deal Link:
Price:
334.99
Retailer:
Corsair
ATL,

Normal price was 439.99

I landed on this after trying so many options, such as Logitech g915 and Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro. All returned.

Price is a lot, but this is a specialty device, only keyboard with the CHERRY MX Ultra Low Profile key caps, 8000 polling rate, 50+ onboard profiles etc. State of the art tech.

First keyboard with almost laptop style keys yet mechanical and very low latency for competitive gaming. Very thin, premium quality device.

Note: Please be kind, thank you.

Update: For those interested, the rtings review is out, this looks to be the lowest latency wireless keyboard in production (.7ms):

Just buy a custom mechanical keyboard from a groupbuy at this price point. In no world is this worth close to $400.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

You can build a killer mechanical keyboard for that price.

Why would you pay that much money for sh** build quality and buggy software?

I wouldn't buy it but to be 'fair' to the price....it's at least a bit unique due to the slim size etc.

Sincere ask:

How can I order a custom keyboard with these exact specs? I don't have the time, so they should ship it with no waiting time, and I want it assembled. (looked at Keychron, no good for gaming, their low profile keys still too high for me).

I want the volume wheel, media control keys, all keys reprogrammable, macros, 8000hz polling rate, <1ms response time with receiver, same slim mechanical switches (anything higher is torture to me - can't type, couldn't even handle deathstalker v2 pro keys). I also want onboard memory with many profiles, also 3 Bluetooth (using for work) and receiver for gaming (lower latency). I also want at least 1 week battery life.

Can't also stand rattle wobbly keys (main reason why returned g915). So keys must be stable.

If this is possible, I can consider returning k100 air and order the custom one.

Thank you for your comment. The built quality is flawless I must say, better than logi and Razer. Only would expect the back to be aluminum as well, but never looked or touched there since I got it :) All keys feel well but the spacebar could be better, feels a little weird, but not a manufacturing issue. Also lighting could be better, Razer is best in that, but not a big deal for me.

I actually like the software better than logi, especially much better than razer one. UX can be improved, and there is a weird lighting notification comes up often. Otherwise haven't seen any bugs. The best is onboard memory is so strong that stores everything. Then I never use the software once setup.

Corsair quality has gone to shit since they hit it big. Its one of the few manufacturers thats on my no-go list.

Logitch G Hub is widely regarded as some of the worst software in circulation. Very low bar.

Razer is for plebs. People who buy razer are the same people who buy fake hood vents for their cars and buy skullcandy headphones.

There are countless better keyboards that come in half the price. Brand bashing aside, this should be sold at walmart for 89.99

For someone who’s in the market for a new keyboard and doesn’t possess in-depth knowledge, any recommendations?

Razer still make decent mice, and the skullcandies were solid CHEAP earbuds back in my day. K70 RGB still seems to be the same build quality as the original

Keychron Q1 is a prebuilt custom keyboard with a volume knob. Amazing heavy metal keyboard with mods. If you want to build your own and have lots of money, a gmmk pro is a good board with a knob, and maybe holy panda switches from amazon. For keycaps, just choose any double-shot pbt design that you like

don't know who gave this deal an upvote
with that price you can get a good Chromebook. Or a decent office chair. Even buy yourself a XBOX or Switch.
If you're seeing this message, it means I cared enough to downvote or felt the need to upvote. Either way you get a👎/ 👍 so be grateful that your thread is being bumped

When i bought some new peripherals I had to update ghub to get it working. only thing is my software hadn't been updated in like 3 years. why is that a problem you ask? well instead of just updating me to the latest software version, ghub made me iteratively install updates until I was on the current one. think it was like 6-7 updates and took like 15 minutes.

This is a very niche product, and I can see why OP bought it. Show me another low-profile, low-latency wireless mechanical keyboard at ANY price point.

If an open-back, wireless low-latency gaming headset came out tomorrow for $800, I'd spend that money for it.
