I think it's a terrible design. Just the the msi dragon. I didn't like it at all. I much prefer the ship logo. It's classy. Not a freaking douchebag tattoo thing. But I suppose I could always out a sticker over it

Agreed! The Corsair sails are synonymous with quality hardware, this tramp stamp is just plain wrong... it's like replacing the Aston Martin or Bentley logos with a cute manga characters, it's just not right. This design must have gone through a design stage and focus group surely.

Yeah but they will have all been American, they know not of such subtleties. I still maintain they just added tribal to avoid it becoming a Sikh symbol.

The ship (sails of a three masted clipper) looks like Old Spice Deodorant.

PMSL! Just read a passage on facebook about it, "It's to appeal to the gaming generation" pi55 right off! Which gaming generation? Eh? 13 year old dota gamers I think.. I'm just off to look at investing in shares of Plasti-dip.

this will soun dumb but if the 900d had that logo i wouldnt have bought now its far from perfect but it ticks enough boxes to suit me. but if that logo had have been on i it would have cheapened i imo. and wraith about the aston and bentley it would be like having hod rod flames on the side of a caselabs super tower or those terrible machined aluminium fan covers on the front of a parvum.

thinking about it more the car analogy is great.

when i was a teen, when playing need for speed underground i would spend hours picking the colour then laying the decals and the manufacturer sticers so they were symmetrical. now when i play a car game i pick the silvia. add hp. then flipping drive the thing. i think maybe us older gamers are no longer the target market buddy.

I'll just leave this here. Most of the people here are modders after all

the people who buy high end stuff really do care about the asthetics.
i know people who wont buy a GPU because the colour of the pcb is wrong, so it is kind of a big thing to some..
And if you do decide to get one then modify it because you dont want your keyboard to look like a "truck stop hooker" what hapens to the waranty?

Personally id tape over it with some black tape and call it a day, because i dont like the thing but im not that fussed about asthetics its more about what performance i can get out of it. so im not one to buy a led filled keyboard any way.

right now on this pc im using a old dell media center keyboard that has prety much the same media key functions as the corsair one. and has a twisty knob for the volume controll. so to me it works near enough the same. obviously it feels horrible to type with though because its not mechanicall.. but for the £3 i paid for it its fine..

but as i was saying. other people wouldnt even have this keyboard in the same house as their pc. so if they are that stead fast on having everything looking just so. a tramp stamp on an otherwise perfect keyboard for their needs is a bit of a kick in the face.

here is the keyboard i use.. for functionality it is about the same..
for feel its 100x worse.
asthetically other people would prefer no key board at all to this.. so if you can get one of these for £3 or pay tripple didgits for one that looks and feels nice. then you better hope that it looks how you want it when you buy it. its not like its a £15 keyboard.
