Great review, Hilbert. My G510 needs a replacement in the coming months and the K95 looks just fine. It has about the same functionality, but the K95 is obviously much better than the Logitech one.

BTW: On page two (I think) the K70 is mentioned twice. Typo or copy/paste error?

Thanks. Cool review.

Great keyboard. I ADORE my K70. Same thing, just without the macro keys (which I have a G602 for).

I am typing this with the K95 and its possibly the best Keyboard i have ever used.
The space bar is a bit crap like most keyboards but its better then most.

Looks good. Could do with a board like that, minus the macro keys, which I have 0 use for.

Considering upgrading my K90 for this.
Mainly for the black finish and white led vs. blue of the K90.

I am getting a new desk this week which is black so it will go well with that.
I can't stop upgrading stuff these past few months.

Great keyboards though.

Oh and for anyone that wants the rubberized keys, you can purchase a set from the Corsair web store. I think they are $10-15USD.

No thanks. I went from a Corsair K90 to a Genius membrane keyboard with low-profile keys. It's great for gaming and easy to type on. The keycap surface area on the K90 is smaller than on a normal keyboard which caused me to make many typing errors. The keys on the K95 look to be the same design.
