Default Cherry MX BLUE

Hello everyone,

So my k70 RGB LUX keyboard came in, and it looks absolutely gorgeous.
Now, what isn't gorgeous is that the chery mx blue keys are inconsistent, some keys don't even have the clicky, they feel mushy, stiff, and it feels totally off compared to my other cherry mx blue keyboard (quickfire rapid).
It feels like the spring/switch itself is hella dry, as if the switches don't have any lube applied to them (I don't know if that's standard procedure).

I thought this problem was fixed :(

Hey man, I'm in the same boat. I just received it about two hours ago and you're completely right. Some keys click nicely, others just sound like an MX Brown. The bigger keys are the most off putting on my keyboard, I kind of wish Corsair would use Costar stabilizers on their keyboards as my spacebar is rattling a lot. This is the first Corsair keyboard I've owned and I must say the keyboard itself is beautiful to look at. I don't know what to do as I doubt a replacement would solve the problem.

Because of this problem that some are having, should i cancel my K70 LUX w/ Blues order? or not?

Do the keys feel stiff or are they smooth?

Honestly, you might get lucky and receive a good keyboard. If I were you I would place the order and wait until I receive it, and if there are any problems, simply ask corsair for a replacement board with different switches, or ask for a refund.

Stiff. Nothing like my other blue keyboards. What the heaven's Corsair? I'm sad because I paid $160 and expected a splendid experience :(

Deep down I knew the blues would still have problems. I had a K70 Non rgb cherry mx blue keyboard and I had the same experience as you right now with mushiness and stiffness. I later bought a ducky shine zero with blues (currently own) and it feels amazing in comparison to the K70. The keys were consistent throughout the board and they were not stiff at all.

After having a not so good experience with a K70 RGB, I was considering giving Corsair another go with a K70 RGB LUX with blue switches, especially after reading this......

I can't update my original post. I'm hopeful that after a week, some of the mushy keys will "break-in" after I use them more and hopefully they'll act like normal. I'll update my original post in a week if I still can. For some reason I can't edit it now.
