Question RGB MX Blue no longer being offered?

I notice that the RGB Cherry MX Blue keyboards have disappeared from corsair, amazon, and newegg. Are they no longer going to be available?

[EDIT BY ADMIN: Confirmed - see post 86 in this thread: http://forum.corsair.com/forums/show...&postcount=86]

I was just at CanadaComputers and was told that their system shows all K70 RGB versions as discontinued, I was all ready to buy a K70 RGB MX Red... They said it might be due to a hardware revision that hasn't been released yet, but that was speculation on their part.

I doubt that.
That would be one way to shaft consumers.

That's what I thought too, but someone in the "where to buy vengeance..." thread claimed a rep told them via email that the MX Blue models have been discontinued. I'm hoping that is because of the issues with mushy keys they were having and they're just getting new model numbers or something.

I'm hoping someone official can shed some light on this. I've been waiting months to buy a k70 w/ MX Blue and would like to know if I should give up.

Amazon removed it first, and then later that same day it got removed from the Corsair products page and Newegg as well. I had all three pages up refreshing them every so often so I wouldn't miss stock coming in and suddenly they started to disappear.

Yeah, a lot of people had been reporting issues with the blue switches. Maybe they found some fault in the assembly line... /shrug

I'd love to hear from some of the people who sent their MX Blues back. The last time I saw anything about it people were talking about having sent theirs back and being told they'd have to wait for more to get in stock or exchange for a different switch type.

I really hope they are not permanently discontinuing the blue switches. I have had a pre-order in with NewEgg since September, and I just got an email today saying it was canceled.

I registered with the forum just to say: there are several of us who are (were?) very excited about this keyboard! Please don't kill it! Between me and my friends, I know of 4 pre-orderes that got canceled this morning by NewEgg.

I'll just hang in there with my K95 (non-RGB) until I hear more. I really love my K95, and was all psyched up for having the Blue switches.

I find it interesting that it says you requested it. I'm disappointed to hear that the pre-orders are being discontinued and am even more eager to hear an official statement on this.

I already sold my old keyboard in order to buy a MX Blue as soon as they got in stock, and to see them disappearing is discouraging.

Just to chime in on the discussion: I also have a pre-order for an RGB Blue-Switch keyboard, but mine is through Amazon and thus far has not been cancelled.

Bit of speculation: Enough time passed (roughly 90 days?) without the retailer being able to fulfill the orders in question and so the orders were cancelled? Maybe there is some sort of filter for this sort of thing that caused this... rather than a discontinuation of the product. Though it is suspicious that I cant seem to find a product page for the blue switch keyboards anywhere* anymore... very suspicious indeed.

*Anywhere being Newegg and Amazon. I didn't look further afield than that.

The fact that it was removed from Corsairs product page on the same day as Amazon and Newegg would make me think there was more to it than just being removed for inactivity. The fact that they disappeared with no statement from corsair is what makes me mad. If I can't get RGB MX Blues indefinitely I'll get Browns the next time they're available, but I'd rather wait out Blues if I know they'll be here eventually.

I don't know if Corsair is discontinuing the blues to fix issues or not. They seem to ignore the blues by announcing the vengeance k70 in only browns or reds and the k95 in only reds. I don't understand why a company would completely remove a product from their pages considering all the keyboards are out of stock.
