The MK.2 keyboards now comes with hardware playback like the K95 Platinum, so you can store 3 different profiles if you plan to use the keyboard on a different system without iCUE installed, and the X panel on the bottom for cable routing. There is also an SE model with a silver aluminum housing and white PBT keycaps.

Saw the SE model at Best Buy today. White with PBT keycaps. Corsair sure knows how to tempt users away from their money.

I'm using a Strafe and I like the silent switches tho... I did see the Strafe Mk.2 over there. Very tempting.

Shame the cap/num/scroll lock leds are still blinding white and not rgb so you can at least change their colour

Everywhere I've looked online for the K70 MK.2 Cherry MX Silent has none in inventory, even the Corsair store.

Is this typical for a Corsair keyboard? Any idea how long I takes for inventory to typically be replaced on Amazon???

It was launched about a week ago so you might have to give it some time for Stock to build up. Petty normal for any Corsair.

Oh, thank you. I did not know it was so recently launched. Guess I'll have to be patient.

Is it faster to order from Corsair, once they're available, or through Amazon?

Will there ever be a K65 mk.2? Maybe with Cherry MX Browns as an option as well?

If there is enough demand for a K65 Mk2 it might be possible. I've been asking for Cherry MX Browns in the K65 for a while now myself so hopefully if we do come out with a Mk2 version it'll offer more switch choices!

I've been wondering about that all afternoon. Since the Mk.2 is essentially a color plate upgrade (good) and onboard memory (good), there really isn't a downside. I guess it depends on how many M65s they sell each year.

I keep hoping that I’ll see the Cherry MX Silent become available soon. I stopped by my local retailer, a big blue store, and they had three K70 MK.2 Cherry MX keyboards on the shelves and the price was marked at $119. I was SOOOO tempted to pick one up- but I really need the quieter switches. IF ONLY they were the Cherry MX Silents...

Im about to buy a new Corsair keyboard and here's my question. Would you buy K95 Platinum or K70 Mk.2?. Here where I live with a discount on 95K Platinum they are available for the same price.

Advantages of K70 Mk.2
-PBT Double-shot keycaps
Advantages of K95 Platinum:
- Macros
- Light bar

I'm just a little bit worried that soon there will be k95 Platinum refresh and it will not be all that flagship. Don't get me wrong I'm not paranoid, it's just the difference between old K70 RGB Rapidfire and K95 Platinum was huge. With K70 Mk.2 available it's not that big. It's even more arguable if it comes to durability of PBT double-shot keycaps which K95 Platinum lacks. Guess I answered my question a little bit, but what's your opinion?

Only the white version has the double shot PBT key caps. While I like the feel, it does have an effect on the lighting. You probably want to see this before committing.

You can do macros on all the keyboards, but the K95P has the 6 "G-keys" on the left side. Their worth may depend on how many macros you need. Some people can get by with using F-keys. I thought I would like the G-keys with gaming, but the left hand movement while on WASD is not as comfortable as I thought.

It is basically the light bar and the G-keys. I loved the light bar at first, but in time it was a bit bright for most things and I end lighting only the 3 panels under the Corsair logo. Funny enough, that is what the MK.2 does. I would say this decision hinges on the value of the G-keys.

There are not going to tell us if a K95 Platinum II is on the way. One day it will be on the front page, but until them. Depending on where you are, I have seen K95P models at a meaningfully lower cost the retail sticker on the MK.2. So back to the G-keys again...

Don't know why I have missed out on that. Guess the choice is easier now because I like the black version more.

My mistake. I meant the "G-keys" of course.

Indeed it's not a lot of advantages right now, but it's still something extra.

The only thing I don't like about Corsair is the fact that suddenly one day there's a new product without any notification. But at least for now it seems they want K95 Platinum to be slightly more premium product even if it's just G-keys and light bar. Also I found time limited promotion and K95 Platinum is about 30$ cheaper than K70 Mk.2 here where I live. Guess I'll go with K95 Platinum then. Still it's nice to see further improvements of their products.
