Corsair New Keyboard Is So Thin I Almost Thought It Was Mechanical
If you’re looking for a new mechanical keyboard, you’ve probably already heard about Corsair’s new K70 RGB TKL Champion Series Optical-Mechanical gaming keyboard. It’s also the first Corsair keyboard to use Cherry Mechanical Switches, which are proven and trusted in the gaming industry. They’re also known for their high-quality performance.
Corsair K70 RGB TKL Champion Series Optical-Mechanical gaming keyboard
Developed with next-gen keyswitch engineering, the K70 RGB TKL is compact and tenkeyless, but retains the core functions of a traditional mechanical keyboard. This new model also offers a full range of customizable lighting and audio controls, plus an enhanced DPI scaling system.
The Corsair K70 RGB TKL Champions Series Optical-Mechanical gaming keyboad comes with CORSAIR’s iCUE software, which allows you to customize onboard profile settings and RGB lighting effects. This software is compatible with other Corsair hardware, such as mice and headsets. The K70 RGB TKL Champion Series features OPX switches, which actuate smoothly and with minimal force. However, it is important to note that the light actuation force of the K70 RGB TKL Champion Series is not ideal for heavy users.
Vengeance K60 Performance FPS mechanical gaming keyboard
The Corsair Vengeance K60 is a premium FPS gaming keyboard that offers premium responsiveness, exceptional customizability, and exceptional durability. Its contoured and non-slip keys provide maximum comfort while playing your game. The Vengeance K60 is designed with ergonomic comfort in mind so that players can focus on the game instead of on the keyboard.
The K60 features an all-black design with 102 keys. The keyboard also lacks a macro key, but retains the multi-media keys. The K60’s textured, contoured keys and aluminum top make it look very appealing.
Corsair M800 with Cherry MX switches
When I first saw the Corsair M800 keyboard, I thought it was a wireless model. But when I pressed the keys, they felt so solid that I almost thought it wasn’t mechanical at all. The keyboard uses MX Low Profile Red switches that are 3.2mm long, with 1.2mm of pretravel. They actuate at 45 g of force. I also didn’t like the way the keycaps were made – they felt squashed and slightly wider at the center.
The keycaps on the Corsair M800 keyboard are made of a thin, non-metallic material. The switches are made of Cherry MX Ultra Low Profile mechanical switches. They have a total travel distance of 1.8mm and require 65 grams of force to actuate. The MX Speed switch is a very thin switch compared to other mechanical keyboards, so you will have to get used to it over time.
Logitech’s LightSwitch offers a wide variety of illumination effects. In addition to pure white, users can choose from breathing, waves, or static contrast. They also have the option of a light sensor that detects ambient light to determine the proper brightness.
Logitech’s MX Mechanical keyboards are available in full-size and compact layouts. Both feature Kailh mechanical switches that provide smooth and accurate feedback. Both models are lightweight and feature a low-profile design. Both keyboards feature a matte aluminum plate underneath the keys.
Das Keyboard’s Code board
Das Keyboard has always been one of the most popular mechanical keyboard brands. They’re known for their simple and low-frills boards, and the Professional 4 is no different. But the company has recently branched out into the gaming keyboard market with the release of their new pro gaming line, the X40. This keyboard includes a few new features like backlighting, macro keys, replaceable and removable faceplates, and a Windows button lockout.
The X40 keyboard features 104 keys, and five macro keys on the right side. This keyboard also includes volume control via function keys instead of a bulky volume dial. The X40’s switches are designed by Das Keyboard, and are available in tactile and linear styles. The linear switches require the same amount of force to actuate as tactile switches and have the same amount of travel before they are actuated.
