Great review Bryan. I really like the look of this keyboard, but the lighting does seem kind of uneven. Not a deal breaker though as overall it look's like another fantastic product from Corsair.

it looks damn easy to clean too - i hate having to turn my G19 upside down, and banging it, to get **** out of it. the k90 would just need can-o-air (or a make-up brush)

Yeah the G-keys are lit perfectly well, but they are light. The idea was to keep the G-keys separate from the rest of the to not confuse when typing, hence why there are also so much lower down.

Are all the keys on this 1 mechanical? I have the K60 and on that the Escape, F-keys, print scr, scroll lock, pause, insert, delete, home, end, page up and down are non mechanical which you really should mention if that is also the case with this 1 and do believe that is the case.

Yep it is the same with the K90, it's mentioned in the tech specs
