A mechanical keyboard with per-key RGB, dedicated media controls, dedicated macro keys, double-shot keycaps, 10-key, no ridiculously over-the-top "gamer" styling, and MX blues. This is my unicorn. I can't adequately express my disappointment.
My first purchase has a USB passthrough that only intermittently works. On top of that, there is a very loud metallic ping. It's not a problem with the switches, nor the keycaps like Corsair's support suggests. I sent for a replacement. The volume wheel on the replacement sticks and the pinging is even worse. I was even okay with the LEDs being dimmer than my current K95, but these problems are unacceptable at this price point.
This is not the first time I've run into quality control failures with Corsair keyboards. When the RGB Strafe first became available with MX blues I jumped on it. I went through 3 or 4 boards, all with multiple keys that were completely unusable. Mushy spacebar that would not spring back up, other keys with the same behavior. I ended up simply going with MX browns instead and finally got a board that worked properly. Even my current K95 Platinum with MX browns, I'm not 100% happy with. The volume wheel has been off since day one. Rolls to a point and then 'pop' like it gets stuck on something. I baby my electronics so it's not like I broke it over time. At least the keys all work and there is no pinging when I type.
I think I'm just done with Corsair peripherals. When the time comes that I need to replace this board, I will just go with something else. Maybe a Razer. At a $200 price point for a keyboard, I expect perfection which this product does NOT deliver. Funny thing is, I would pay even more for that perfection if someone built it.
