I got a new keyboard!

Postby kookie » Mon Jan 15, 2018 11:02 pm

Long story
Hey! Today I received my first mechanical keyboard. I'm pretty happy about it, so I thought I should post about it here and ask what you may think.

It's an RGB Corsair Gaming Strafe Mechanical Keyboard, with Cherry Mx Brown switches. (The ones that you can feel click but not hear excessively.) Here's the shortened link from which I ordered it : www.newegg.ca

It's refurbished : it's been sent back for repair and processed through various checks to make sure the product is usable again. I was worried about this, thinking there might be missing parts, some lighting features might be missing or some keys might be scratched or even broken. Thankfully, to my joy, the product was beyond pristine. All the accessories were included, and I still can't qualify the state of the product anything less than new!

The keyboard, shipping, and taxes added up to a total of 141$(CAD). That's 113$ USD. So I'm happy to have found such a bargain.
While typing that out, I can safely say that this feels a lot more natural and lovely to type on than the spaced, flat, membrane keyboard I used for 2 years.

Thoughts on price, product and same experience of joy and wonder would be nice to read!

Thank you!

I have the same keyboard in Cherry MX Silent. While I don't have much physical experience with mechanical keyboards, these switches are just a Cherry MX Red, but with a lower typing volume. I personally like the keyboard, but I plan on moving onto a TKL, most likely the Ducky One 2 Horizon TKL or the Corsair K65 Cherry MX Speed.

I do own the same one with the Silent switches also, neat keyboard actually.
Had to send back the Red switch version, it was a bit too loud for comfort in my experiance, no normal VOIP calls could be made without OP click sounds with the Red-switches one.
Salute !
