- SIZE - This is a full-size keyboard. You can get the dimensions in the item description but just know before you purchase, this keyboard is long.
- WEIGHT - Very light as it's a fully plastic build. Very little keyboard flex, almost 0 while typing.
- TYPING - This is a membrane keyboard, meaning each key is not individual like a mechanical. There is an obvious difference, don't believe people who claim that it feels like a mechanical keyboard. It doesn't Imagine a slightly mushier MX Brown switch. That all being said, it's a joy to type on, requiring very little effort to press the key. The key travel is not as linear (linear = bad) as other membrane keyboards, there is a definite tactile bump when you press a key.
- RGB - One of the best parts of this keyboard. There are a bunch of pre-set configurations for the 3 sections. That means 1/3 of the keyboard will always be the same color, you do not have individual key colors. You can read all about the modes on Corsair's website, but the ease of use while changing colors is pretty solid. It can be all one color, 2 different colors, 3, or you can have it cycle through the colors in 3 different speeds.
- FEATURE SET - Obviously this is not going to have the same features as something like a K70. What you do get is RGB coloring, very solid membrane keys, volume and playback controls, as well as 6 different macro keys to bind to one, or multiple keys in a row. (Meaning you could bind the first Macro to type out a word)
- BONUS - This can be seen as a pro or a con. There is no external software you need to download to use this keyboard. It has built in memory for your LED modes and macro functions. I would really have liked a software option if only to control the features the board already comes with, but without the slight hassle of changing settings through keystrokes.
Overall absolutely amazing keyboard for $50. If you don't mind losing mechanical switches, there's very little to complain about with this keyboard.
I will respond to any questions I get on this review for the next few months.
Competitive price at $50 USD
Quiet high profile keys
Included wrist rest
No software needed for RBG lighting
Included media buttons
It’s quiet, it’s beautiful, the keys do feel a bit slick and like a potential grease magnet but that just means it’s up to me to keep my area clean.
The included wrist rest does feel cheap, it’s like a mostly hollow piece of attachable plastic with a little rubber grip texture on top, but it was freely included unlike other keyboards. However as a negative I do see myself replacing the wrist rest with something more comfortable in the future.
I haven't been able to test out the programmable keys yet so no comment there.
I hate loud keyboards! I know the signature cherry key click is a must for many in the mechanic keyboard fandom (the k55 is NOT a mechanical keyboard for the record). But I love the tactical feedback when typing without the loud clacking. The keys feel great to press and naturally are obviously louder than low profile keyboards. But this keyboard doesn't have that drag and heavy typing experience that comes with low profile keys.
I bought this on black Friday for $40.47 (that's with free shipping and US tax). Even at full price after all the research I've done this is the most competitive expensive but budget friendly high end keyboard. It looks so professional, but it's decorative enough that even with the lights off it's a subtle flair of design to add to any office space without that in your face "gamer" aesthetic.
