Default Are the UK keyboards actually UK layout?

Simple question: are the Corsair "UK layout" keyboards (particularly the RGB ones) actually UK layout? The problem I have is the image shown on the product/store pages appear to be US layout. If I look at the keyboards on other UK retailers, they seem to use the same stock images too. Basically, is it what you would find on a proper UK layout keyboard, like the double-row enter button, and the backslash left of Z? Does anyone have a photo of one of the RGB keyboards with UK layout on it?

History: My new computer woes keep coming. I got another brand backlit gaming keyboard previously and only started using it with the new build. My rate of typos shot up. I only figured out tonight certain combinations of two letters, if pressed with little gap between them, will result in the output being reversed. e.g. if I type "th" I get "ht". Swapped back to a cheap standard keyboard, and problem disappears.

once you get use to typing with a cherry keyboard the mistakes should go down. Also the UK layout should be the standard UK layout. Most of the pics stores use are the US one because thats what Corsair provides them with.

I'd still like to see a UK one to be confident.

On Cherry keys, I've read and re-read the description of red vs. brown but still don't get what the actual difference is in practice. Any help there?

It's a UK layout: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HZ...ZD1KVgnwLpCQFQ

(Sorry, would have embedded image but the button crashes both Safari and Chrome on IOS )

Thanks. Looking good. Guess one of those will be on my shopping list now, as soon as I figure out exactly what to go for.
