A Closer Look and Performance


Straight away, this is a fantastic looking keyboard, and there’s just no denying that fact. It’s not hard to judge the looks either, since we’ve seen this design from Corsair in the past, and mostly the tech upgrade is on the internal side anyway.

It’s got a sleek low profile design but still feels robust and rigid, as you would expect from a keyboard with a premium price tag.

Control Your Music

Dedicated multimedia keys allow you to take control of your music, without tabbing out of your game.

The volume and mute controls are pretty handy too. However, it’s the F9 and F10 key that standout here, allowing you to toggle Bluetooth or 2.4GHz connectivity. Keep in mind that you’ll need the USB dongle for 2.4GHz mode, Bluetooth will pair with your motherboard, laptop, or similar device.

The keys themselves are super slick, featuring the huge font that makes them clear to read. Of course, the massive lettering also allows a lot more LED lighting to shine through. RGB enthusiasts look elsewhere though, as this is just a blue LED keyboard, which is fine, I think it suits it just nicely.

Little details add up too, such as this pressed metal design on the space bar, rather than it just being flat.

Cherry MX Switches

Again, full Cherry MX switches on the primary keys of the keyboard, so you know you’re going to get excellent performance. If you’ve used MX Red before, it’s the same as they always are. However, keep in mind that the multimedia controls are the top use a membrane switch, but that’s hardly an issue.

Some lovely blue trim lies under the keys too, which looks great with the lighting off. However, you’ll see it glow up even better when we power up the keyboard.

Save That Power

Speaking of power, you’ll find the master power switch at the back, as well as the USB port for wired mode and charging.

On the underside, some flip up feet for increasing the angle, as well as two clips for the detachable wrist rest.

My main issue here is, I bloody hate these clips. Corsair, invest in a new thing called magnets please, as these things are hilariously bad and prone to breaking.

Wrist Rest

Crappy clips aside, the wrist rest does look pretty fantastic once installed. However, compared to the palm rests we see on rivals like Razer and Cooler Master, it feels a bit hard, hollow and cheap. It’s entirely fine in general, but other brands have already upped their game in this department.

LED TIME!

The LED lighting is beautiful and bright, although it does come at a price in wireless mode. With the lights on, you’re looking at a good 14-15 hours of constant usage, which is pretty fantastic actually. However, with the lights on you can quickly go triple and above on that timeframe. How often you’ll be using the keyboard fully wireless is subjective though, as desktop users are likely to keep it on cable most of the time.

The lighting does look fantastic though, and with CUE software you can apply a wide range of cool effects, it that’s your thing at least.

Overall, I can’t fault this keyboards performance. It’s as slick and accurate to use as any other Corsair keyboard in recent years. The wireless thing is flawless, and with 2.4GHz and Bluetooth on offer, you’ll have no problems getting connected quickly and get on with your gaming.
