Corsair K95 RGB

 

The Corsair K95 RGB improves upon one of the best mechanical gaming keyboards out there, with greater customization and a rainbow of colors.

Mechanical keyboard with customizable per-key backlighting. Stylish aluminum design. Detachable wrist rest. Dozens of programmable options. Customizable lighting modes.

High price. No USB pass-through connection.

Conclusion With the switch to individual-key backlighting and an expanded selection of macro controls, the Corsair K95 RGB offers a significant improvement on what was already one of the best keyboards available. The attractive design is enhanced by...

Corsair K95 RGB Platinum Review and Ratings

 

The Platinum version of the iconic K95 mechanical gaming keyboard makes a great thing better and adds snazzy edge lighting, though some gamers will bemoan its reduced array of macro keys.

Handsome, sturdy design ; Excellent configuration utility ; Per-key RGB lighting, and new edge lighting ; Great macro creation ; Volume roller ; Choice of Cherry MX Speed or Brown switches

Pricey ; Only six dedicated macro keys ; A few counterintuitive layout choices

We would reiterate that this—the reduction in the number of actual macro keys—is the only area (albeit an important one) in which we feel let down by the Corsair K95 RGB Platinum. Otherwise, this beauty would be bordering on being our first-in-memory...

CORSAIR K95 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

Excellent build quality and good looking keyboard. Great clickety-clack sound when typing (although I may be the only that appreciates this). Huge range of functions. Backlit keys

Maybe I just need to get used to the keyboard - but at the moment I'm miss-hitting keys a lot when typing

CORSAIR K95 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

Solid and well built - mostly. Looks uber-cool. So far works precisely as it should. Very versatile hot-key programming. The G keys can be programmed to do whatever you want - apart from make tea - they even change function automatically depending on...

I cant remember what I have assigned the keys to do - nor will you - believe me - 18 keys with different functions per programme? - nah - it's not a bad point per-se just an observation. Oh - and I wish it came with Cherry Blues instead of only reds -...

CORSAIR K95 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

If you like mechanical keyboards you will love this. The white keyboard lighting has adjustable settings and you can have all lit or program the ones you want. It's very well made and the keys are very responsive. It's also less noisy than my previous...

Took a while for my eyes to get used to the lighting
