How many K100s do I need to return?

So I returned my first K100 because the keys were just way too wobbly and the tech support seems to struggle understanding the most basic issues with these products (the final straw was when I was being told to update the drivers of the mouse to fix its uneven feet), and while the replacement keyboard has a little less wobble, it now literally sings.
It sounds like I am smacking a lamp post with a wrench. *klang klang klang*

I'm sorry Corsair, I love your products, but your QC is abominable, always had issues with this.

Might be time to wait for a newer version to drop at this point and time. Or pick another brand perhaps. I wished we had a big store here to test things before you get them. If I want to do that it is a 2 or 4 hour ride each way to do that.

I do hope your next purchase makes you happy. Good luck on your decision and let us know what you get and if you are happy with it.

There is no use in waiting, it's been like that for years, it's time to complain and wake up Corsair.


The only alternative in terms of specs would be the Huntsman V2 from Razer. They got glorious switches and sound, so stable, such an awesome typing experience and really quiet too.
Am still testing both side by side and neither of them is perfect, as the Huntsman V2's RGB is terrible, and while I don't care about the bling side of RGB, I discovered that if you tone down the lighting in your room a lot, good RGB makes a world of difference both in visibility of your keys and the mood you can set, and trust me, the Huntsman V2 RGB is terrible. The lights barely make it through the keys and it is so spotty that it ends up looking dirty in some places.

 

When I compare the 2 keyboards it is nicer lights and a snappier gaming experience vs nicer sounds and typing experience, so for me the K100 wins out by a sliver.

I figured I might keep the feature set and push-lube the switches. I could also replace the Huntsman's caps instead, but there would still be that longer key travel and I would be replacing expensive PBT caps with additional expensive PBT caps.

I honestly don't think anything will wake them up now. Because someone will always pay the higher price they are asking. It is just the way it has always worked. The RMA time is always very bad and has been like that for years. They aren't going to change. If they were going to change they would have already done it. If you want to make a difference do it with your wallet.

 

I could nit pick them to death or all the issues I have had with them over the years. I rather just get something else and move on now. Easier and less oh a headache. All companies have their ups and downs but Corsair never wants to listen to a paying customer as it is never nothing on their end. I come in here to read and see what is going on. Maybe do a post here and there and keep on moving.
