Sadly the price on the Corsair site is £139.99, I know that's with VAT but still, Way too much.




I'm guessing the RGB K95 will be in the region of £180, I hope it's not though, £160 should be the maximum, Any more and that's just greed in my opinion anyway.

I know a lot has gone into these but prices are starting to get a little crazy.

Last time i checked it was £170.
Good to see it's come down to £140 but still quite high.
It'd be nice if it was around £120.

As for the K95, £140 would be a nice price for it imo

You are right, it is £139.99 on our website. Sorry about the mistake.

No apology necessary bud, The price you quoted was correct without VAT, You add the 22% VAT and you get £139.99

I only hope the RGB K95 isn't a silly high price, £180 I can happily live with though, Worth it if the LED's are as reliable as advertized

Update:

A friend of mine in the Netherlands just bought an RGB K95 from his local store, Hopefully this means the rest of the world will get them soon.

Good to know Dice, they've also introduced the ten keyless K65 into the line up with an added wrist guard, I'm just still holding out for those brown switches and some reviews. Its between one of these baby's or a Ducky 3. Hopefully we get some solid confirmation soon.

Oooh!
Any chance you could ask your friend how much he/she bought it for?

He paid €220 which comes out to roughly £180'ish, I'm not sure if that was with delivery though.

That's interesting as those are not available yet. Do you know what store he got it from?

The K65 TKL keyboard is going to be exclusive from Best Buy (US retail). But that can always change in the future if there is enough demand in that region. The product will be made available if your local retailer wants it. Just make sure you let them know you are interested in buying the K65 RGB.

Ah, I thought the K65 was simply exclusive to Best Buy for a limited period of time, but that's fair enough. I'd like to see more of it in all fairness and whether it's been improved, I.e. The addition of the tapered 1-6 and WASD caps from the K70, whether the cable's still a removable microUSB or if it's been changed, etc.

I'll keep my ear to the ground but thanks for the extra info Grey beard
