    Considering the awful reliability of Corsair keyboards – D.O.A, dying LEDs etc, I can categorically say that the £194.99 price is almost certainly not worth it.

    “I think the feature-set justifies the price”

    Nothing, fuck all, justifies a price of £200 for a keyboard.

    £195!??? GTFO…
