    Why can't people just accept PERSONAL PREFERENCE?
    I have a Corsair Strafe with Cherry Silent MX switches which was given to me by a Corsair rep through another forum. I tried it out for a few weeks and while I love the look and the features I just could not get on with the keys. I hate them... I don't like ANY mech swicthes. So after a few weeks I packed it back up and it's been in it's box on a shelf ever since (mint condition, just never got around to listing it on Ebay) and I've gone back to a trusty Logitech K740 Illuminated keyboard that I've had for years. If I could get an RGB version I would, the only thing I don't like about it is that while it does have designated media keys, they are used in conjunction with the FN key. I type and play a variety of games with it(RPG, First Person Shooters, RTS...). Oh... as for key wear... my logitech K740 still looks spotless and brand new if I clean it properly.

    I will have a look at this Corsair for sure but I would like the option of removing the G keys and blanking them off...

    I had almost forgotten about that song; didn't know there was a video online (watching it now).

    I have removed the G6 key and blanked it off to stop me hitting it instead of the control key when I am Gaming.

    Bought this a week ago, feels good.
    Coming from an old G15, this feels much more comfortable.
    One minus though, the G15 had lots of G keys.

    I'm pretty sure you'll be able to replace the key caps for better ones.

    I've not searched yet because my KB is still brand new but most boards will get newer better caps.
