The keys feel nice. Good to type on; they're membrane keys, which is totally fine for me and probably 90% of people.
The RGB LEDs shine through the keys and behind the keys perfectly! I thought it would be a irritating gimmick but I actually like it a lot! iCue is easy to use and you can set macro functions from there.
There must have been an update, because I'm able to use the "Type" RGB function wirelessly, (I left a video in this review) many people say they couldn't, so that's not an issue anymore.
The K57 has many issues, which apparently is something shared by all of Corsair's wireless peripherals. The main issue is how to set up your devices. Don't bother with the instructions because they're all wrong. Here's how to properly get up and running:
1) Fully charge your device before anything else. It's actually a thing with Corsair for some reason.
2) Download and install Corsair's iCue program.
3) Plug in the included USB dongle, then update its firmware thru iCue.
4) Plug in your wireless device directly to your PC via USB cable, then update its firmware thru iCue.
5) Unplug your device, turn it on, and pair thru iCue.
After trying to get 3 separate devices set up, that's what I concluded.
Anyhow, once I had it up and running, I found it drops connection constantly, even with the dongle not 12 inches away. Let me be clear: this was the first device I conne ted and installed; there were no other devices connected to interfere with the signal.
It goes to sleep at however minutes you set it to, but it takes a while to wake up and reconnect. And even with the sleep timer, the battery lasts less than an hour - and that's with no gaming and the lighting down to the 2nd lowest setting!
As for cosmetic issues: it's made entirely of cheap plastic; the LED bed is annoyingly exposed; the chassis is too tall to use comfortably with the wrist rest; and the cheap rubberized wrist rest connects like a hinge and swings freely. I know a few other manufacturers do this too, but I'd prefer it snap on rigidly. The only thing I somewhat liked about this was the typing feel, although it was a bit on the squishy side.
I've used a lot of Corsair PC components over the years, but this is my first time using their peripherals. I can honestly say they suck. The whole ecosystem is trash. Even their much advertised "Slipstream" is still in beta testing!! Oh, and even if you can get the program (because it's so buggy Corsair took it down themselves) you can brick all your dongles! Honestly Corsair, WTF??
I pretty much cut and pasted this review for all 3 products I purchased. I could understand one out of the three having issues or being subpar - but all of them?!? After this whole ordeal, aside from their PSUs and RAM modules, I would not recommend any Corsair products.
This is a membrane keyboard, but I don't understand the to-do about blue/red switches. This keyboard works great, its perfectly responsive, and feels good to type on.
Although, yes, for a membrane keyboard it is a bit pricey. But you have the option of wireless dongle connection, or bluetooth, and the battery has a substantial life, going at least a week+ with ~8hrs daily use before needing to recharge.
I have no problem with the iCUE app, RGB cutomization is easy. Reprogramming buttons or creating macros is fairly straight forward. Although I'm not entirely fond of the macro-record button placement, it isn't horrible.
And I do prefer my volume controls on the left hand side, but this can be worked around with the G1-6 buttons.
For per-key RGB customization you will need to remain plugged in.
The wrist support can be a little difficult to get use to because its hard plastic but with a little getting use to, its a non issue.
Battery life, with it on 24/7 is roughly 2 days. It says something like 40 hours but im sure as the battery degrades it will get there. Turning off the flashing lights gets it to 4 days surprisingly so they must really suck that battery dry but it does what it says it should!
The hotkeys are in a little weird position on the left if you are not use to it, i didnt hotkey the bottom button yet because i keep clicking it thinking its the ctrl button but im sure with a little more practice it will be fine
Overall, great keyboard! Immediately installs on a myriad of different devices, even a phone it took 15 seconds and was ready to use
