The editors didn't like

  • So far
  • Price (For Some)
  • 6 Macro Keys Instead Of 18 (Unlike The Previous K95 Models)
  • CUE Software Design
  • Pricey
  • Only six dedicated macro keys
  • A few counterintuitive layout choices
  • Extremely expensive
  • Still an enormous keyboard
  • Blocky typeface used on each key
  • Expensive
  • No audio jack
  • No onthefly macro recording
  • Not a lot of bells and whistles
  • Premium price tag
  • CUE user experience has improved tremendously
  • But can still be challenging to new users
  • Rare macro-execution errors prevent a flawless launch
  • Keycaps need to be better for a $200 product
  • Cherry “Speed” switches bottom out easily
  • Hard to adjust
  • CUE software a little overly complicated
  • Lack of switch options (need it in Cherry Blues)
  • Braided
  • Attached cord is very thick and not very flexible
  • High price
  • Not available in all Cherry MX flavors
  • $199 is a lot to spend on a keyboard
  • Font is a bit ugly
  • CUE software is still not great
  • No Audio Passthrough
  • Price
  • Expensive at $200
  • But not unreasonably so for its features. Relatively short twoyear warranty when offbrand boards offer three to five years
  • USB 2.0 passthrough
  • Slightly overkill

  • I've used the K95 RGB Platinum since early January. In that time, I've reviewed half a dozen other RGB keyboards but always return to this one. Why? Even without the PBT set, it's one of the best looking, fully featured gaming keyboards on the market toda...

  • Slimmed down from the old K90, Cherry MX Speed switches are as fast as Corsair claims, Top-tier RGB lighting
  • Extremely expensive, Still an enormous keyboard, Blocky typeface used on each key
  • Regardless, the K95 RGB Platinum is a beautiful keyboard with excellent switches, top-tier lighting, and what I still consider the industry standard for media keys. Seriously: A volume roller is indispensable now that I've used one. So much more convenien...
