Default Do you recomend Corsair Keyboards?

So I am thinking of upgrading my keyboard and mouse, I have the mouse sorted but I am sceptical about my keyboard. I am thinking of getting a Corsair Raptor K40 keyboard (Raptor K40 Gaming Keyboard (EU)). It is everything I need but I have never used one. Can I have your inputs on this keyboard or on Corsair keyboards in general and any recommendations for keyboards in 60 range.

Many thanks,
Spicy

It all depends on what you want. Corsair make solid keyboards, if that's what you're asking. Do you want mechanical keys or rubber dome style? The Raptor K40 doesn't utilize mechanical switcher.

They're pretty great, expensive but generally you're getting what you pay for me. Not my cup of tea - I prefer simpler, more basic mechanicals.

Practically any keyboard is good for gaming, that's just subjective.
