What advantages does this keyboard have?
Good things do come in small packages. This compact K65 has everything you could want, with fully customisable keys and light effects.

How can I customise my colours?
With almost limitless choices you can customise what colour each key is and how they change using the software. Highlight the keys you’ll need in any situation or have a wave effect across the whole keyboard. You can have keys that light up or change colour as you type with them. Set speeds with the software or use the Panasonic display control for amazing colour displays.

What can program with my keys?
Using the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) you can assign Macros to any key, giving you more options than ever before. Record your settings with the on-board memory so you can get your keyboard customised perfectly and take it with you. With dedicated multimedia keys you can play, pause, stop, skip forwards, skip backwards and control the volume of your music and video from your keyboard.

What’s the K65 compatible with?
The K65 RGB is compatible with Windows Vista, 7 or 8 and needs two USB 2.0 ports. Compatible with the Corsair gaming software which helps you program your keys and build profiles and colour settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First gaming keyboard, haven't looked back So I've owned this for half a year now, and I'm still feeling like it's the first day with it. It's still great tor type on, super responsive and the effects from Corsair are outstanding. CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) allows for crazy customisation, as every key can be programmed, lit or rebound to naything you could want. I don't like having my caps lock on in game, so I can get it so that the CAPS LOCK button pulses red only when caps lock in on! All in all, it's a great keyboard with great features (Chery MX Red, aluminium front, etc) and I would definably recommend getting it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Mechanical Keyboard I bought this keyboard a couple of days ago, and I have to say I'm loving it so far. The lights are pretty, not too bright, and the keys are responsive and easy to type on. And a big bonus is no longer getting owned in The Witcher 3! This keyboard is streets ahead of my old MS Sidewinder - I will never go back now. I recommend this keyboard if you want something compact, pretty and functional. Just a word of warning - the Corsair software is not terribly intuitive, but once you've played around with it for a while, it gets easier. My only problem is that my son also loves it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the feel of the keys and the RGB is a bonus Great keyboard, replaced my microsoft sidewinder 7. Wont be looking back as the feel of the mechanical switches is great, typing took a little bit to get used to but now it feels great! Cherry red switches are a tad loud but that its a characteristic of the switch not the keyboard its self. All in all the keyboard feels great to use, and the RGB looks amazing in low lighting. Very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice keyboard but unreliable On my third one now and this is starting to display the same issues of unresponsive or chattering keys and i have had both the non and RGB versions, seems to be about 6 months before the problems set in but makes entering passwords a very hit and miss affair and long documents are a pain. The extra weight of the metal frame makes it nice and stable and the compact format is a great space saver but i would trade features for reliability. Cannot fault Maplins as they have happily replaced the previous faulty items but for a very expensive keyboard it has been very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from do not buy! do not buy! this model of keyboard is very flawed , after about 2-3 weeks of use it gets very bad key chatter in about 5-7 keys (not only me but 100's of other users , google it), i'm on my 4th replacement and yet again the same fault has developed , i'm mad at corsair for still trying to sell this model without doing a product recall all they seem to want to do is send faulty keyboards back and forth ! , rated poor.
