I "pre-purchased" a K95 RGB Cherry MX Brown (CH-9000062-NA) keyboard back on December 26th from Amazon. After discovering this thread and seeing a clear lack of mention of this keyboard in the original post, is this keyboard slated to exist again sometime in the near future or is my order going to go unresolved until there are no Humans on the planet left to use a keyboard? I purchased a H2100 headset and M65 RGB mouse and am satisfied so far with those products (except the double-clicking issue with the mouse, but Corsair James is handling that issue). I would really like this particular keyboard to unify my inputs and have, what I consider, one of the coolest looking keyboards with the appropriate key switches for my typing style. Thanks for any feedback.

Attention UK and Nordic layout users! The Corsair/en-gb site has Vengeance k70 RGB MX Reds in stock in both layouts for £103. Ordered mine a few hours ago and it's already being shipped. I spoke to a Corsair rep to confirm as well.

Hi! Thank you James for looking into things for us! Will you announce news in this thread or should we be watching a different page?

It's crazy how fast these things sell out! Who knew that so many people would be excited about spending so much money (for a keyboard) on a keyboard that lights up with pretty colors? It makes me feel more validated in being one of those people, haha. :)

A follow up: After noticing the stock and ordering yesterday (at about 2pm), my K70 RGB came at 10am this morning!

I've only unboxed it so far and ran the demo to make sure the LEDs work correctly (which they do), but I can already say that the keyboard is fantastic. It looks great, and would fit in to the look of any environment. The build quality feels excellent, with the aluminium base feeling solid. It was actually cold to the touch because of the temperatures here in England at the minute. The LEDs look vibrant, and the default colour state is all red, with white WASD and arrow keys; which admittedly is a little plain for the initial state for an RGB keyboard. If you plug just the single USB in (the power one, not the keyboard one), and wait for a short while, you'll get the rainbow shop demo mode.

As you can tell, I haven't used the software yet, since I'm at work; but the build quality of the keyboard will make up for the time it takes to fix the reported bugs.

TL;DR: K70 RGB - Well worth the wait.

Wow is it out of stock already? I'm not EU so it doesn't affect me but still.

James did you have any more updates on the NA restock? I'm personally most curious about the K70 RGB Brown if it matters.

I'm waiting for the same, K70 RGB Brown. I saw Amazon had the K95 RGB Brown on pre-order sale for almost $163, and I'm kicking myself for not just doing it. I don't want the bulk though, and I don't game. Live and learn, I guess. I figure if I'm going to spend this kind of money, I'm going to get exactly what I want though. I guess we'll see if patience pays off here.

First message, but I've been lurking for a while. Just wanted to say thanks to you, James, for keeping us as up to date as you can. It's nice to see this kind of customer interaction, and has kept me from going elsewhere while I wait for the keyboard to be in stock.

Yeah I totally don't have room for the K95 on my desk. The extra keys would only be nice if I still played WoW anyway. Really if the K65 came with browns I'd probably go for that, I barely use the numpad anyway.

Just curious but how long from when they were in stock did it take for the K70 RGB brown to go out of stock?

I'm the same, I was considering making room though. I considered finding ways to bind the G-Keys to the apps I use most, like Notepad++ and Chrome, and maybe making quick steps in Outlook that are bound to keys. In the end, I just decided to recognize I was reaching, and that I should wait. *sigh* We'll get them though!

I don't believe they have been in stock anywhere for a while. It's what we're waiting on!

I was waiting for Browns since I was looking for a new keyboard in November. When the UK site had Reds a couple of days ago, I jumped on one, just for something to replace the membrane I was using while I waited.

As soon as any Brown stock comes in, I'll be getting one of those too, but with the amount of people waiting for them, I don't imagine they'll be here available for longer than a few hours.

Just a heads-up, for NA people it appears that Best Buy has the K70 RGB Brown back in stock! Only online but oh well. I'm not sure which logo it will have, it's hard to tell from the posting. I'm guessing the swords one but this is clearly a new batch of stock so maybe it'll have the sails one? I'm not sure. If anyone knows let me know. I am personally not super hung up on the logo as I haven't really even seen the swords one in person. I can post in the thread about which one I got if anyone is curious.

I also got a notification from Newegg that they had them in stock again too, but it was at 1AM my time and it's out of stock again. :\ So either it was a mistake or they actually ran out THAT fast. Wouldn't surprise me!

I was just getting on to say the same! I think I'm actually going to pass on the BB batch, and wait to see if Amazon gets some.

The NewEgg alert was probably because a 3rd party that sells through NewEgg has some: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-025-_-Product

They (Action Packaged Inc., the 3rd party) are selling it for $250. I may wait for the Amazon shipment that is no doubt in route or processing to come in, as they may price it lower. They did with the K95 Browns, and at any rate, I like them better than BB anyway.

I looked more closely and the BB listing has the model number for the swords logo one so that's probably what it's going to be. I'll just have to see if I like it in person. If not I can return it and go back to stalking the sails logo one in this thread. Honestly I don't think either logo is very attractive, haha.

I think the new logo looks like a tramp stamp. Corsair did the right thing in offering some classic logos. It's cool when a company listens. Let us know how you like it when it comes in!
