Thumbs down gaming K95 lights (not happy)

So my nice K95 which is only 4 months old and already 2 leds no longer work.
call to the shop and whilst they will RMA leaving me without a keyboard for about 28 days they are not willing to do a refund on it which would enable me to buy the newer rgb version which so far as I can tell does not have the faulty led issue.

We had this on RMA since December got email from OK advising it will be replaced and an order number then just now another saying unable to get as end of life and to call them re options.
Was really hoping to get it back tbh as this crappy thing I am using is plain awful.
So I will ring them tomorrow to see what they mean by options and let you know

I would of thought if it's not replaced with the same thing you would have the option to refuse and get a refund

I would have gone direct to Corsair (well we don't have a choice down here) because you should get like for like. Despite what you paid for it, you bought it new and should expect it to work for longer than four months. Even if they sent you a refurb it would be a better outcome than downgrading.

well it has arrived and tbh it looks way better than the K95 did although not having a number pad feels weird I just hope the LEDs on this last
