This is the first keyboard I've used with Cherry stabilizers on the keys instead of Costar so that may be why the spacebar sounds and feels very off for me.

Try using the keyboard for a couple of days and see if the switches become any more consistent? I'm gonna give it a week. If it doesn't... then I might have to replace it for an MX brown... hopefully that doesn't end up being the case.

A consideration to make is that while only a small percentage of people experience problems, the people who experience problems are the most likely to post about the product (rightly so). You don't see many posts saying "Everything is perfectly fine!" even though most users don't have problems.

If you buy a Corsair product and end up having an issue like mushy Blues, they will surely take good care of you

Don't really see how your post is at all relevant to this thread's discussion.

The thing is, this keyboard is not even released yet on the market. There are numerous complaints regarding Corsair's implementation of RGB MX blue keys on amazon, newegg for their strafe and older k70 model.

The fact that multiple amount of people who were able to get this keyboard early are reporting the same issues is very concerning.

It would be much better for Corsair and their customers if they sold keyboards that work properly in the first place. I got a refund on my K70 RGB after waiting ages for the promised 16.8m colours, only to get flickering 16.8m colours (and a couple of faulty LEDs). Now there's 16.8m colours without flicker, but if you want blue keys there could well be a problem with them. Quality control seems to be lacking.

If I encounter any of these issues, I think I'm just going to ask for a refund a go with a ducky shine 5 with blues.

Personally, if you encounter issues, give it about a week to "warm up" to see if the issue will go away.

Yeah, I guess that won't hurt...

Spacebar, Enter, Shift, backspace, etc. will all feel different because we're using Cherry stabilizers for those long keycaps. If you're coming from a keyboard that never used a Cherry stabililzer, that is indeed the difference you're feeling.

As for the noise of the key switches, I do hear a difference but Cherry has told us there is a "break in period" for the keys. You should feel a difference after using it for a while. The slight stiffness is more pronounced on MX Blue type of switches but is actually there for all switches.

Finally, all MX RGB Blue switches are all sourced from Cherry. We don't add or remove anything to the switch as they're shipped directly to our keyboard manufacturer from Cherry themselves to be added to the keyboard. Even if you get a keyboard from a different vendor that has Cherry MX Blue RGB switches, you will get the same result minus the different stabilizers they will use for elongated key caps.

What about the mushy keys people are feeling? And the fact that the click isnt always there? Is that normal? Or a defect?

So UPS decided to deliver my K70 LUX 1 day early! However, there is some bad news. Just like everyone else who received their boards, I am experiencing the same issues, especially the mushy keys which is driving me crazy!!! Corsair Henry said there is a "break in period" so I guess I'll give it a couple of weeks and see if the mushy keys go away. Now as for the stiffness of the keys, I must say that the keys on my board are not too stiff but they are definitely heavier than my ducky with blues.

That is great news that you received it early!

Yes, there is a break in period for the switches. Please use it for a week or so and let me know how it is.

I sure will. The keyboard itself is amazing. I just hope the switches start behaving normal over the next couple of weeks.

I'm having this exact same problem. Most all of the letter keys feel stiff and only a few of the switches actually feel clickey at all. Not to mention, the spacebar is easily the worst I've felt in any keyboard I've ever had. I am really disappointed in this product. What should I do to get this resolved?

I can't remember if my spacebar was originally so stiff, but right now it's fine. The right side of the main section of my keyboard is stiff, while the left side is starting to fill "normal" compared to my other MX Blue (non-rgb) keyboard. If this isn't because of a placebo, then I think it's because I've used the leeft side relatively more than the right side due to gaming reasons. Hopefully the right side will lighten up.
