available with Cherry MX Brown!!! Unfortunately, only in Germany?
 
I want to buy a K65 RGB keyboard, because it's TKL. I'm looking for a MX Brown switches and obviously on official Corsair's website there is only version with MX Red switches :(: (product code: CH-9000222-NA or EU etc.).

How big my surprise was, when I found out on german Amazon and many other german online shops, that they actually have this keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches:!: It has product code: CH-9000228-DE. So as you can see, the number 222 refers to Red switches, and 228 refers to Brown ones. I had been ready to buy it until I saw that it has different and weird buttons arrangement in comparison to NA version which I prefer.

Link to german Amazon with K65 RGB MX Brown: http://www.amazon.de/Corsair-CH-9000.../dp/B015C9Y658
If you want to find more offers, just google: "Corsair CH-9000228"


So there is my question to you Corsair, why the NA/international version of K65 RGB with Brown switches is not available ???
And if you're going to release it, when will it be?

Please Corsair, I really want NA version of K65 RGB with MX Brown.


EDIT:
There are also versions:
CH-9000228-ND Nordic
CH-9000228-CZ Czech
KE-CK65RGB-BR South Africa

Now, that's new. I wasn't aware they finally made the K65 with brown switches. I did try to look around too but I can't see the NA version anywhere either.

Actually I can't even find that SKU code on Corsair's own site, maybe it has been released only recently and they have yet to update their site.

Yea thats odd. I asked Henry for the SKU just this week and i dont have one for K65 Brown.

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO I've been waiting for this since I discovered the K65 even exists :'(



How is there possibly more demand in Czech Republic and *South Africa* than NA? Isn't that like 0.5% of NA market?

Noo!!!! please reconsider your decision!!

This is sad. I wanted to get the K65 but the only thing stopping me was the red switches. Any chance you guys would have K65's with brown or blue switches? :(

As already stated, mx brown switches are the most popular switch in North America. Therefore, mx brown should be the first available option on new keyboards. I made an account here specifically to request a version of the k65 with these switches, as I am apart of the ~50% of the population that prefers brown to blue or red.

Red is actually more popular than Brown but not by much (according to our own sales data).
