My silver K70 replacement with blue LEDs is now over two months old and all LEDs are still working fine. The lot number is 13178407 (German layout). So maybe there actually is a newer revision that doesn't have the LED problem.

Edit: Maybe I should have knocked on wood when posting the above. The first LED has just gone out (scroll lock).

I really love this keyboard. I use it especially for gaming. It is beautuiful, but I am very dissapointed in the LED failure!

Can anyone confirm that it's the blue LEDs which have been failing, and there are no issues with the red LEDs? And is it only the silver model (with MX Red), or are there issues with the gunmetal models with the MX Browns and MX Blues also?

I've had my beloved K70 since Christmas, its a UK layout Gunmetal, with blue LEDs, MX Brown. Had no idea about this issue until I spotted my left shift key's LED had gone out earlier today. Totally gutted, spent a long time picking the right mechanical keyboard for myself, and this is the one. Unfortunately I care about having the blue lighting, so I'll have to send it back.
It'll be interesting to see if the rest of the LEDs start dropping like flies now the first one has a gone, a lot of people seem to say its a chain reaction.
I'm just a bit concerned that the replacement I get will do the same.

RAM GUY :-) I'm in New Zealand and own K70 black with it.

I want to buy another K70, the Gunmetal with browns...but I'm concerned about these LED's dying out. Has there been a refresh yet to this line or should I wait a bit?

Cheers mate

Still no official word on this?

Have been looking to make the jump to a mechanical keyboard and absolutely love the design on these Corsair keyboards. The only thing that's stopped me from buying one already are the multiple threads like this one online and that I'd wager the RMA process will likely be a right pain from here in Australia if I luck out.

Would be curious to see if anyone has had the issue with red LEDs too?

So I just got my K70 about a month ago and two of my blue LEDs are already starting to dim. "Scroll Lock" and "End" keys. I am assuming we are to RMA them?

As this is my only keyboard it is going to really mess up my ability to use my PC if I have to do some multiple week RMA process.

I have the Corsair K70 MX Brown with a german layout. 8 LED's don't work anymore so far. Using it since 4 months.
How long did you guys have to wait for a new keyboard with working LED's?

My blue LED K70 is 7 months old and had 4 bad LEDs yesterday. Today there are 9 bad LEDs.

Default How is the led problem with the silver/blue led?

I was buying one, already with the bill but no paid yet. Googlin' for problems saw the led problem(saw this problem on every keyboard with blue lights, jez ¬¬).
Loved the k70, but very worried about the led problem. I live on Brazil, so i don't want to rma to another country(i don't wanna spend that time and money), since the problems seems to occur after the 30 days of local warranty.
Seems so hard to find this keyboard on my country, just on ONE website and sold so fast.
