Would skip this keyboard for a Corsair K70 model. The build quality is mediocre at best. Also they feel like Cherry MX Brown switches if anyone is wondering.

You are comparing a 140$ keyboard (Corsair K70) vs 80$. Not really fair playing field.

You're also comparing an Alienware gaming keyboard that's on sale (originally $140) so it's not far off.

For reference, you can get a refurbished K70 from Newegg for under $80.

Just giving people the options. I bought the Alienware keyboard before buying the G810 Orion before settling on a K70 Rapidfire. There's a reason why it's rated best gaming keyboard currently in the market.

Welcome to RFD where for every deal, someone recommends something double the price.

Not that Corsair has much to really do with this thread, but Corsair isn't known for being a top tier mechanical keyboard producer. More of a "good of the poor gaming producing". There's better options out there.

Of course there are better options, but we're talking mid $100 pricing (before sales) at a consumer level, it would be considered the best overall. To each their own though. Like many accessories, it's all based on personal opinion. I for one couldn't get use to the macro keys on the Alienware and accidently hitting them when pressing ESC.

It also didn't come with a palm rest. So if anyone's buying this keyboard, I'd recommend getting the palm rest add on that's on sale as well from Dell.

If you feel that a refurbished Corsair keyboard is a good deal, no one is stopping you from making a new hot deals thread on it.

But this thread is about a deal on an Alienware keyboard. If you make suggestions, at least keep it similar to the original deal - in price and quality.

No.... we're talking about a "deal" about a keyboard that is selling for $80. Not original price of mid 100s.

It's like a deal (reduced price) about a certain HP desktop. And you come in with a suggestion for a similar speccd desktop from Dell selling for full price.
