The gears may be turning, but gears most often go round in a circle and end up where they are.
It's only been like 80 hours.

Yellowbeard and others have responded and told you, they are discussing it.

Things like this don't happen overnight, there's a lot of issues and variables at play here. + a LOT of money that has been spent.

Companies like Apple and Microsoft have boatloads of money sitting in offshore accounts hey can just toss at a problem,....IE the Bending iPhone 6.

Until then you can buy a keyboard from a source that can tell you which
logo is on the keyboard. IE. Ebay and Amazon. Click the "Contact seller" link.
or call a computer store and ask them which ones they are stocking.

Our customers spoke, we listened.


We hear You.

As many of you know we launched our new Corsair Gaming line of peripherals this week. We’ve received a ton of feedback on the products and new logo. We are amazed and humbled by the passion our customers have for the original Corsair sails logo. The ship + sails are here to stay and will continue to be used on all Corsair PC component products.

However, we know many of you prefer the classic logo on our keyboards, and you’ve made your voices heard. For those of you looking for the new K70 RGB with the original sails logo, it’s currently available in North America from Newegg – just look for the SKU CH-9000063-NA. What’s more, as a direct result of your feedback, we will continue to sell and manufacture the Vengeance K70 and Vengeance K70 RGB with Cherry MX Red switches, with the sails logo, via select retailers and Corsair.com.

Let’s keep talking!

That sounds like great news!

To be clear, it is only the K70 RGB and not K95 or any of the mice correct?

Proof that the "gamer" audience you're targeting does not care! http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com....php?t=4895701
I posted that thread to spread the word about the petition to change your logo, but no one on LOL cares. Would they buy your keyboard with the old logo, very likely. Why because it has good features, but unlike us they honestly don't care about the logo. We however are very passionate about Corsar because we've been with you for years. Every other place i've posted whether reddit or actual PC gaming forums everyone was displeased with the logo. So please corsair, go back to the logo as everyone is asking you.
Petition: https://www.change.org/p/corsair-com...d-corsair-logo
Furthermore, people care so much that they are registering brand new corsair forum accounts just to get their message across.

So more specifically, WILL the K95 RGB cherry MX brown switches be available with the regular non-gaming logo also be available? Sorry, but that wasn't clear enought for me so can you clarify please.

But now they have said they're going to continue to offer the K70 with the original logo, so it seems like people were not expecting something that is completely unrealistic.

Hopefully they clarify, but I'm pretty sure they're saying (at least for now) that only the K70 will be offered with both logos. That's probably because they were already selling the K70 with the original logo... so a lot of the work for that has already been done.

thats what im guessing. They want to get rid of the bad logo stock first. In that case i will continue to voice my opinion for for the K95 brown switch until they do an announcement for that.

Doubtful that actual sales were affected by more than one or two hundred units.

This is only for red switches. 9000063 has been available for a month already. The furor has been for those holding out for browns and blues. I think this doesn't fully address the issue.

As far as manufacturing is concerned, it's merely installing one color switch instead of the other.

Help us out!

Came across this thread randomly, just wanted to chime in, I actually ended up avoiding Corsair products because of the new gaming line logo. Was looking for a gaming mouse and mechanical keyboard setup to replace my old ones, and just decided on other brands because I really dislike childish tribal designs on gaming hardware.
I still like Corsair products, but if you're going to design a gaming logo, please don't assume we're all in our teens or enjoy over the top designs.
