General Thoughts:

My favourite keyboard is the Corsair K95 RGB because it has an extra 18 keys (I use them all the time with my work in multimedia), but obviously not everyone has the same needs that I have, so you can ignore my rankings in that regard. That said, they’re still top boards and you can always get the smaller ones (K70 / K65) if you want a more compact design. This new K95 has reduced the amount of extra keys, unfortunately, so despite the improvements on the LEDs and some other elements, I don’t think it’s as good. Not for me anyway. It’s definitely a lot prettier! Actually it’s possibly the best looking keyboard around at the time of the review.

It comes with a pretty big price tag too.

My main issue with Corsair keyboards at the moment, despite the overall quality, is that the typing experience isn’t as good and they’re very loud. So the older keyboards by them are actually better in some ways.

They’re still great though and Corsair keyboards are still my favourite. As always, it’s personal preference, so hopefully you can find what’s right for you.
