All logos are black to match the black anodized aluminium. The silver logo was only available on keyboards which had the silver aluminium (which is EOL now).

I'm under the impression that the logos on the keyboards are some weird, thick sticker thing. Is it possible to purchase a silver logo?

No, this will not be possible.

Why not? Seems many more could get the board they want; Gaming brand will be available in more varients than Vengeance, and people could just order those with a seperate "Corsails" logo adhesive plate to cover up the Gaming logo, which is considered ugly by so many. I never understood why Corsair would not adopt such a simple solution that would make so many of their customers happy. Seriously, wouldn't that be easier than developing new skews/model numbers for limited variants in low numbers for limited time?

Are there plans to make MX Blue with the old logo?

There are no plans to have RGB keyboards in Cherry MX Blue variant at all according to a rep from the webstore. I was told in an email yesterday that apparently the project manager has decided to discontinue the CH-9000061 and CH-9000064 models. They couldn't get a reason for this but the rep referred my inquiry to Corsair's "Product Specialists".

Anyone who wants to see the e-mail can PM me.

Really? You guys talked a lot about the unreleased RGBs on your own forums for months in advance of release.
AFAIK it wasn't mentioned before the technical announcement at CES. Perhaps it should say "unannounced" instead of "unreleased".

I honestly just don't get your answer and seems like total BS to me, sorry. Why is it so hard to get straight answeres from Corsair, and why so often do the Corsair reps on here seem so smug to their own customers? It was a fair question, and a more straight forward and friendly answer could have been something like, "we don't have plans for a product X at this time" or "It is possible that we may produce product X in the future, but I can not confirm a timeframe or whether it will ever be produced."
That phrase has been the standard used on the forum for years and isn't meant to be smug or imply anything.

IMHO saying (paraphrasing) "it's possible, but there's no timeline and it may not be made" is more wishy washy than saying "no comment". The more we say, the more people read into it.

I'll talk to our webstore to see if I can at least get accurate dates for you all who are watching the thread everyday.
That would be much appreciated. Along those lines, if I have an item on my wishlist, will I actually get an email when it goes back in stock? I'm checking the webstore pretty much daily anyway, but it would be nice to know if having it on my wishlist actually does any good towards me finding out when it's there.

Corsair.com keeps logging me out and my wishlist doesn't work. Everything I had in my wishlist is gone. It always disappears.

Default Too late

Clicking the Amazon link shows that it's unavailable. It's too late, I'm already going with another brand.

After much waiting, anticipation, and even negativity, I received the Vengeance K70 RGB for Christmas after sending back the Gaming version. Very happy with the way it came out, and despite my skepticism with this coming out by Christmas, I got it just in time. Personally, it was definitely worth it to get the sails version; it's beautifully done, subtle (which is all I wanted), and great quality. Software could use improvement, but it's usable.

Looking forward to more software updates and more profile creators. It has a lot of potential and I'm glad to finally be done with waiting. Thanks Corsair!
