Corsair K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard Review
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
It’s no secret that Corsair has a huge range of award-winning peripherals. From the enthusiast PC gaming mechanical keyboards to their wide range of gaming mice. They’ve certainly got a bit of something for everyone. However, Corsair has long tried to dominate the living room too.
Living Room Gaming
About three years ago, we reviewed the fantastic, albeit rather chunky Corsair Lapdog. Still not their strongest product name, but it gave us a setup for PC peripherals on the couch. Of course, that was amazing to use. Then we went wireless, and considerably more compact with our review of the K63 Wireless Gaming Lapboard… no “dogs” on that product name either.
For 2019, Corsair is going all out on something really unique though, the K83 Wireless. Or for the cool kids, it’s better know as the “LOUNGE WIZARD”
