General Thoughts:

Testing the new Cherry MX Speed switches VS the Cherry MX Reds. I’m a big fan of Corsair keyboards and the K70 continues to deliver… but now we need a new K95 so I can have my extra 18 keys. I love quiet keyboards so I’m not a fan of the Rapidfire. I also can’t find an advantage to the Speed Switches. But the LUX with Cherry Red and O-Rings is great!

If I were choosing a board and couldn’t pick the K95, this would be my choice. Aluminum plate for strength and a great look, dedicated media keys, wrist rest, easy to clean open board design, nice RGB LEDs (smooth gradient cycle), and while I’ve used better feeling keys (something about the way Corsair puts the switches and caps on, maybe), this still has the main features I want. If it sounds like what you want too, I can recommend it. Links below are to the Cherry MX Red switch version.
