The new "gaming" logo is absolutely disgusting. From a design perspective (and its what i do) its terribly too big, wont fit on anything well, and its just fugly. Seriously kotaku called it... "tramp stamp".

I want a K70 RGB but not with this logo. I dont even think the sail logo fits well on the k70 either but this looks terrible.

Thanks for expressing your opinion. We are of course paying very close attention to what our customers are saying.

After I got off of work yesterday, I immediately ordered the keyboard when I got home. I've been waiting for this keyboard since it was announced at CES last year. I didn't realize until today about the logo... glad I caught it soon... canceling my order tomorrow since the offices are closed at this time. I'll wait until they release one with the original logo...

At the very least they could've provided an optional template of the original logo to swap out with the new one... preferably not adhesive... magnetized would be better or just something as a solution... Much like Computer Case badges. I don't get how it was a good idea in the first place to put especially a color that you HAVE to deal with that wouldn't match your color scheme when the whole idea behind RGB was to be optional and customizable. The yellow "gaming" should've been neutral if anything... like the logo... I despise it overall...

Good thing I caught myself before purchasing a K70 wtih RGBs. At least you could offer an option to have either the Classic Corsair logo or the trampstamp "gaming" logo.

perhaps one area is being over looked,a company generates ideas on their products from the wants/needs of the majority but views here are of the one or the few .
rather than bad mouth a great product simply because of a ''logo'',why not organize things to get Corsair to offer individual logos apart from the product.

now,even tho Ive offered a better resolution,,,issue a bad rating simply because my opinion differs

I've been looking at close-ups of the new logo on the K70 RGB and it almost appears to be a snap-in piece. If that's the case, maybe Corsair could make another plate to take its place and mail out replacements to customers. If the logo is permanently attached to the keyboard then maybe Corsair could produce a rubberized/plastic badge like I have attached to the front of my case. The sail design is timeless and I love it, and the letter styling is classic. Corsair could make a similar rectangle badge with the classic Corsair logo and mail those out to customers who request one.

a very sensible alternative allowing users to have best of both worlds...

Some customers have asked what this means for the Corsair “Sails” logo. Never fear! The original Corsair logo is alive and well and will continue to be used on all Corsair PC component products, nothing changed.
Actually I kind of like the new gaming LOGO, Get with it peps, quit being Obamanots. Looks Cool...

Why are so many people mad over this? If you truly are a "diehard" fan and waited SO long for it, and suddenly a small logo you really shouldn't be looking at during anything really, changes, you're going to threaten them that you're no longer a customer? I like the logo, honestly. I'll take either or, cause they're both cool and made by Corsair, so that makes it all the better. If you're going to hate it, don't use the I'm not a customer threat, it honestly makes you look like a dick, and don't forget, Corsair is full of humans too, not emotionless working robots to plead to every word you say.

What if you kept the "Corsair Gaming" which makes marketing sense and dropped the "graphic" on new, future products released?
