Default EU: RGB Gaming Keyboard Availability

Thank you for all of your interests in the Corsair Gaming RGB Keyboards! Our inventory has been selling out very quickly and we are excited to see such a large demand for these peripherals.

For those of you who have difficulties finding the keyboard in stock in your region, we are pleased to announce that additional allocation has started shipping already to our channel partners and should show up in about 1 week.

If you need additional information, we recommend you contact your local reseller.

There are still some variables to consider like how long it takes for the reseller to make it available after they receive the product, but chances are you'll get it much earlier than November 17th.

I contact today with Scan.co.uk and they told me:

'' None of the RGB keyboards have been included in their latest shipping reports and their backlog guide shows no ETA ''



So is certain that the keyboards have allready dispatched?

Thanks in adnvance.

Will there be an announcement if shipping of the K95 RGB Blue/Brown starts in Germany (with the german layout of course)? Can you estimate when it starts? Will I get an awesome Christmas present?

Hi, and thanks for the update. For clarification purposes, when you say EU-region, what layouts are you referring to? US English, German/French/Nordic-layout, or International English (usually with the suffix eu) as well?

I have been trying to purchase a non-RGB K95 eu-layout (international English, big enter key) for a looong time now, but it was never offered from the Corsair website, there was no official info whatsoever and only from international vendors (e.g. in the Netherlands) could I verify that this layout does exist, with a product number as well.

Corsair James,

With the utmost respect, I dont know what you guys are smoking because its been well over a week since this update and nothings arrived at ocuk or scan. Further more to that I hear on the grapevine the RBG with Cherry blues has been delayed even further?

I fear I will be an old man before my purchase turns up

It's ridiculous isn't it? Can we please have a further update? The availability in the UK is still virtually non-existent.

The reds have barely been available from the get go. The browns even more so (i genuinely think there were at best a total 20 k70 and k95s available across online retailers, and that's being generous). The blues have literally not been available from anywhere, at any time, AT ALL. Despite being advertised as available at launch like the other switches.
I've had a paid for pre-order of a blue switch K95 from Scan since they were first available - the day of the Corsair Gaming launch. Scan now list the ETA as 17th November, a whole 2 months after we were told this keyboard was released.

Meanwhile if you contact any of the major retailers like Amazon, Dabs, Overclockers etc they have no clue when they're getting any stock in despite having the keyboard listed for sale since early/mid September. So it seems Corsair's communication with retailers has been as bad as with consumers.

Check out discussions on this topic on Reddit, Overclockers forum etc etc and you'll find plenty of people have given up waiting and bought a different keyboard instead. Not just because of the wait, but the fact that we've essentially been lied to about the release of this product and little to no effort has been made to explain the situation.

It's the vagueness I find most upsetting, if I were the Corsair boss I'd be down on the manufacturing floor ensuring production was in full swing and keyboards are flying out the door.

Instead it's like "oh we don't really know when you'll get it, so we won't keep retailers or customers in the loop". Meanwhile as you say, plenty of people are cancelling their orders and going elsewhere.

There's a 10+ page thread on ocuk right now called "Corsair RGB release date" I fear will be 100 pages long before anything shows up.

Are there no other shops for you to buy it at? Oo
I mean there were some serious issues with supply in germany but after around 10 minutes of searching through shops I found one that was even cheaper than the normal offers in the big stores. Free shipping as well. Sometimes chosing small shops can pay off. Just make sure to check the reviews first.
Also - Razer Chroma... LOL
