> K95 Platinum

$190 on Amazon… hmmm…

Keeb.io Iris:

  • $20 for the PCBs (when they’re in stock)
  • $2 for the LED support kit (the Corsair has LEDs, so we’re adding them here)
  • $16 for two Pro Micros
  • $25 for PCB plates if you’re going cheap
  • $2.50 for a TRRS cable
  • $3 for a USB cable
  • $3-ish for resistors
  • $7 for 14 RGB underglow LEDs (optional)
  • $3 for diodes (currently out of stock)

That’s $81.50 and all that’s left is switches and keycaps.

Can get 60 Cherry MX Speed switches at Novelkeys for $33 (if you like those switches, and there are cheaper options for switches), and two Ortho Base DSA Blank sets at PMK for $52, which probably isn’t the cheapest way to go, but I didn’t bother really looking. So $85, and you can probably save a lot of money getting keycaps from mechmarket.

That’s $166.50 all-in, not counting shipping. And most builders probably have extra parts leftover from previous builds.

And you can’t run QMK on a Corsair.

I couldn’t find this when searching on Amazon for some reason and had to go to Corsair’s store page to find it.

Here’s a link if you’re having the same problem.

it’s $175 on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-PLATINUM-Mechanical-Keyboard-CH-9127014-NA/dp/B01N5IISXY/ and I don’t like Corsairs. I tried a HyperX alloy side by side and the HyperX felt way better, and it’s $100.

What is your budget? Personally I have this and I love it but it is not cheap.

Now believe it or not I’ve gotten my K70 SE for 130$ so in my position buying a K95 platinum for MSRP of 200$ is insane.

I just found one for 170$ tho https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-PLATINUM-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboard/dp/B01N5IISXY

You can get this on Newegg right now for the same price with free shipping. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16823816087 Edit: or Amazon… https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-PLATINUM-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboard/dp/B01N5IISXY Amazon or Newegg + tax would still probably be cheaper and faster than this + shipping fees, not to mention you then have a nice return policy.
