Corsair Strafe Mechanical Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2015-08-23

We have reviewed quite a bit of Corsair gaming keyboards in the past and we can say that while they are a bit more expensive, the quality is top-notch and the experience is quite unique. With the Strafe, Corsair wants to introduce its premium products to more budget-conscious people, by eliminating some of the elements like the aluminum layer, the wrist rest or using a single-color LED for the Red/Brown Cherry-MX switches. The product is accompanied by the powerful CUE (Corsair Utility Engine), which offers the same levels of customization as on the more expensive variants and within it we can also update the keyboard firmware to its latest version. For added value, Corsair has also included two sets of keycaps, which are meant for MOBA and FPS players; these keycaps have a slightly different shape and special texture in order to add extra grip and comfort during longer gaming sessions.
