At the top of the right side, we find three slits of white that will turn red indicating the Numbers, Caps, and Scroll locks are active. To the right, we see a light icon that allows you to set the LED brightness on four levels, and there is the Windows lockout button there as well.

The right side of the board is identical to what we saw on the left. Just this time the feet were extended to show off the much better angle of the caps, now leaning into the user.

Circling around to the back of the keyboard, we find a USB pass-through port for something like a mouse or a headset. We can also see the cable emanates off to the right of this port but is centered in the design.

That thick wire continues roughly four and a half feet of rubberized anti-drag goodness until you hit the first yellow section. This is where the cable splits into keyboard USB power and an additional one to power the pass-through port, both of which are clearly marked.

The bottom of the keyboard is mostly flat but does have a textured finish. The holes are all for screws and not weep holes, but at each of the corners is a small rubber foot to keep the Strafe from moving.

While we would have liked rubber at the ends of the flip out feet in the back, we like that Corsair opted for side flip out feet so that bumping the keyboard will not accidentally collapse them.
