Best Buy Review by JTPanda
Corsair already makes good stuff. The PC I built already uses a few corsair parts to begin with. I got this keyboard because for 1, its cheap (for a gaming keyboard, it was around 50$ when i purchased it.). 2, It's back lit. With all kinds of color options, your choices are near limit-less. You can have up to 3 different colored "zones" on the keyboard, or have just one color all over. And i believe you can make it fade in/out as well. 3, It's NON-MECHANICAL. Don't get it twisted, i know mechanical keyboards are great and the response time on them is insane, but they come with a hefty price tag, and the click-clak of the keys gets highly annoying for me. (So annoying, it gives me Forest Whitaker eye). But, the K55 still sounds great for when you are trying to type out those quick messages in-game! Overall, a great peripheral for your gaming setup (even if you are not on a budget!) To major MMO players, it may not be your first choice, due to limited 6 macro key selection. But that is why they make MMO keyboards/mice. just for that reason. It has a Windows lock key, so if you accidentally press that windows key by the space bar, it will not knock you out of your game if you have that key enabled. So, in closing, this keyboard is great, I recommend it to any PC gamer, be it casual, or hardcore. it may not have all the bells and whistles as its bigger cousins that best buy offers, but the K55 is well worth the money. maybe even worth more than 50$ IMO. I even sold my Logitech G510 gaming keyboard afterward because i like the K55 a lot more.
TL:DR, It’s a great keyboard for the money. I highly recommend it to any PC gamer. It has a minimalist setup, but yet, enough features to satisfy my needs.
