Corsair STRAFE mechanical gaming keyboard review

 

Feature-packed and comfortable to use, but the STRAFE is a little expensive compared to Corsair's RGB keyboards

While we were impressed with the STRAFE’s no-nonsense approach, squeezing in as many features as possible from Corsair’s more expensive models and not compromising on build quality, at launch there’s not a giant price gap between it and the more...

Corsair Strafe Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

Though it may lack a few of the high-end extras offered by more expensive models, the Corsair Strafe Mechnical Gaming Keyboard is well made, customizable, and affordable.

Reasonable price. Mechanical keyboard with per-key backlighting. Customizable visual effects. Full individual-key and macro programming. USB pass-through.

Red backlighting only. No wrist rest.

Conclusion The Strafe maintains the essential features of a mechanical gaming keyboard while keeping the cost moderate. Certain features in the Corsair K95 RGB and K70 RGB, such as backlighting color options and a wrist rest, aren't part of the...

Corsair STRAFE Mechanical Gaming Keyboard – A solid starter missing some features

 

Last fall, I had the chance to check out Corsair's K70 RGB mechanical keyboard. It was a sturdy, good looking mechanical keyboard with customization options that would make most keyboards slink away in shame by comparison. This year, Corsair is back...

The Corsair STRAFE currently retails for $109.99 with Cherry MX Red switches, with the brown switch keyboard set to release shortly.

Excellent Product!

 

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a great typing/gaming experience. If you are looking for a strictly "for work" board, I would recommend looking into other boards like the Logitech G710+ (less gaming / lighting features,...

- Not too loud - Very responsive - USB pass-through is in a very convenient location for a mouse or a flash drive - Included gaming key caps are rubber coated and feel very nice for gaming - Software enables amazing lighting capabilities, especially in...

- No volume wheel / dedicated media controls - The legs at the top are not rubber coated - The bottom row is not a standard layout - Software is confusing for new users

Amazing Keyboard!

 

I wish they had custom profiles like for the other Corsair Keyboards, I know the other ones have color but even with the solid red it would still look nice. Not really a con though!

Another great product from Corsair! This is my first Mechanical Keyboard and I must say I love it! The keys feel and sound great! The lighting in my opinion is great too with all the different effects, I really enjoy it!

CUE program is a little complicated for me.

Excellent keyboard

 

This is a nice keyboard. I use fro photoshop and CAD drafting and I'm impressed with the quick key responses. And I just like the fact that the keyboard lights up.
