Is the silver finish one going to be an actual thing you can or something that only exists in pictures and you hear of people owning?

P.S Fyi, before anyone gets uppity and fishes out a link from somewhere that was the case when I bought mine awhile ago ...in black, so I no longer care how things have come along since I'm not shopping for a new kb.

man, is it just me or has corsair's design language sort of gone down the tubes? Just my taste but I have an older Obsidian 550d case and first gen K70 keyboard, bought them because the design was simple and classy, pretty understated but "nice" looking, business casual almost haha. Idk i just feel like they don't have as unique as a position now in the market in regards to their new design choices, looks so much more gamery. The font on the keyboards for example smh.

Meh... Give me some Cherry MX Low Profile boards instead. Tired of tall keys.
Low profile is so much more comfortable and natural to use.

Corsair Keyboards are a piece of junk. People, please read all the comments in Amazon of the people that had been using it for several months. Leds fail, usb fail, keys are fragile, the software is a crap... not recommended at all.

i've got four corsair keyboards in the house, the only one with issues is some dead LED's because my toddler smashed it with one of his toys.
Softwares massively improved over time, and none of them have had any physical issues whatsoever.

Had more issues with razer keyboards than any other brand (dead keys, dead LEDs, utterly terrible software... flaws like when you enable the new chroma lighting and it forces it for ALL hardware not the one device, making it so you cant keep things independant)

K70 user here, working great for a long time now. Bought the double shot key caps too, but they let less light through. Obviously, because you can read this, the keyboard still works, but originally purchased the K95, and the audio scroll wheel was very rough and it had to be returned, exchanged it for the K70 and been smooth sailing ever since. Other than complexity, the CUE software does work.

There are probably people who do use the USB port on the keyboard, but having a keyboard with a thinner cable would be nice, or at least one with the option of no USB ports, don't really want 2 plugs for my keyboard with one dangling behind the back of the comp.

Other than the choice of keys, and colors, whats new about the Mk.2?
