Corsair Gaming Strafe Mechanical Keyboard

Looking at the left edge of the Strafe, we find a two-piece frame that is broken up near the top with a slit that is filled with clear plastic to be illuminated later. You can see there is a top, and this is not an exposed plate design, but Corsair has kept the profile very low.

The main section of the keyboard offers convex caps, an easy to read font, and they red steel plate poking through the frame and in between the key caps is a nice look. And we don't even have the LEDs powered yet.

Multimedia functionality is built into the F-keys, and you need to use the Function key to operate them. F5 offers a mute button while F6 is unused. F7 can be used to lower the volume, and F8 is then used to raise the volume.

That also continues to the F9 for stop, F10 for last track, F11 used as the play/pause button, and the F12 offers a track forward button.

Another thing we want to point out before we move to the right side of the board is this highly textured space bar. Corsair has used a diamond plate pattern that is molded into the plastic before the caps are sprayed with the black coating.

The right side of the Strafe then offers the arrow keys, the nine command keys at the top, and the full number pad with optional arrows.
