Corsair announces the LUX Series mechanical keyboards


Posted: Aug 30, 2016 10:39 am | Peripherals Press Releases

CORSAIR, a leader in high-performance gaming hardware, today announced the immediate and worldwide availability of its new LUX range of mechanical keyboards. Building on the phenomenal success of the CORSAIR K70, K70 RGB and K65, the new LUX range adds a host of new features and improvements. With enhanced lighting, USB pass-through and a back-lit optimized key cap font, CORSAIR LUX keyboards retain the core-design, premium materials and commitment to quality that has earned the CORSAIR K-series over 300 global media awards, making them the benchmark for high-performance keyboards.

Alongside the signature CORSAIR aluminum construction and 100% German-made Cherry MX keyswitches, the LUX range adds an enhanced internal lighting controller, allowing for finer color adjustment and even more vibrant patterns and effects. Paired with CUE (CORSAIR Utility Engine) software, stunning lighting effects are just a few clicks away.

 

Adding to the light show is the LUX family's new larger, modern key cap font. Designed to maximize the keyboard's ultra-bright LED backlighting, the new precision laser-etched key caps have the durability to last through years of key presses while looking their best.

 

The full LUX range also adds a long requested feature to the CORSAIR family of RGB keyboards - USB pass-through. Now standard on all CORSAIR LUX keyboards, USB pass-through allows users to conveniently connect a mouse, headset or other USB device directly to the keyboard for uninterrupted gameplay and easy access.

The sleek aircraft grade aluminum frame grants both a premium feel and superior durability. Every CORSAIR LUX keyboard also boasts a range of essential extras for gamers, including built-in volume controls, dedicated media keys, a detachable soft-touch wrist rest and 100% anti-ghosting / full key rollover circuitry offering the complete package of quality, features and performance.

 

With a choice of six different Cherry MX keyswitch types, two different sizes and three different backlighting options, whichever way you play, there's a CORSAIR LUX keyboard to suite your style and gameplay.
