Corsair STRAFE RGB Mechanical Keyboard – Review

The Corsair Strafe RGB comes in a well-designed, thick cardboard box. The artwork is based on a picture of the keyboard itself and has a black/yellow color theme, which is the “signature” livery of the Corsair Gaming brand. The use of Cherry’s new MX Silent switches is very clearly noted on the front side of the box.

The Corsair Strafe RGB gaming keyboard uses Cherry MX Red mechanical keys, which are very comfortable and give a very smooth feedback while typing. Alongside with the keyboard, Corsair supplies a very basic manual, a wrist rest, a keycap removal tool and two sets of gaming keycaps. The first set is supposed to be for FPS gamers and the second for MOBA gamers. Both sets are contoured and textured. Two keycaps, the W and the D, exist in both sets but have different contours as a result.

Corsair Strafe RGB

Overall, the keyboard has matte finish with smooth texture on keys, while the space bar has a contoured consistency (so the thumb does not slip off). The body of the Corsair Strafe RGB gaming keyboard is made of metal and hardened plastic, and there is zero indentation of the keyboard base even when pressing down the keys with force. This gives the keyboard a rock solid build.

The Corsair Strafe RGB lighting :

When connected, that’s where the magic happens. The Strafe RGB is a keyboard that makes you feel like you’re on blue meth and typing on the clouds. Just load up the Beatles in their yellow submarine days and enjoy the light show. The RGB lighting is alive and it pulses and dances around your fingers waiting to get out. While the RGB lighting may seem like it’s there for entertainment value, it’s actually quite usable.

The RGB lighting is mostly fluff and fun in the day, but come night and that’s where the full power of it comes into the light. You can customise the lighting on individual keys from the software. It is powerful, like you can set various key lighting schemes for different games and programs, to automatically load in.

In Box:

In the box you also get a key tool and a set of coloured keys for WSAD. You also get a handy palm rest. The cable is not braided, and comes with two USB connectors, one for your Keyboard and one for the USB port in the keyboard. For plugging in your mouse or a drive. If you have a USB 3.0 port then you just need to plug in the keyboard wire. Thus saving on precious ports.

Conclusion:

The Strafe RGB is a fantastic keyboard with RGB lighting that not only looks great, but also is functional. The software is tough, but once you get used to it, it’s fine. The keyboard works like a dream, thanks to the quiet and responsive mechanical keys. If you are in the market for a RGB keyboard then the Strafe RGB should definitely be your choice.
