Corsair K68 RGB Gaming Keyboard

The view of the left side of the K68 RGB looks like many of the Corsair keyboards, with the lower section encompassing the sides as well, and a top plate applied to it. Above the frame of the keyboard, we can see the exposed switches behind the membrane, and the keycaps are angled away from the user at the front.

This image differs from the original K68, as all of the space between the seventy-four keys was red in that one. The layout and offerings are straightforward, with no dual functionality of the F-keys, and we can see that the space bar is highly textured, which will reduce wear spots.

The thirty keys on the right end of the K68 RGB deliver all the functionality we expect to see. The commands are all present and entirely written out, and we have the arrow keys as well as optional arrows in the number pad for left-handed gamers.

Along the top edge, we start with the LED intensity button and the Windows Lock button. What follows them is the trio of LEDs to indicate when the number, caps, and scroll locks are active. Beyond that, there are three buttons to adjust and mute the volume, while below them are four more multimedia keys to address the track playing.

The view from the right end of the keyboard is very similar to that of the left, with the exposed switches under the membrane, and the simple two-piece frame design. Extending the feet under the keyboard has changed the angle of attack on the keycaps, and is more ergonomic this way.

Under the keyboard we find four thin rubber feet to keep the K68 RGB from moving around. Not only do we see all of the screw holes, but we also see nine slots which allow liquids to exit the frame. Along the front edge are a pair of notches so that the palm rest can attach, and at the back edge are the two flip-out feet.

Flipping out the feet is reasonably easy to do, but we did run into a pair of "issues." For starters, the feet are not rubberized at the end, which means you do lose grip. The second thing is that the feet flip-out to the back, which means they can collapse when the keyboard moves around.

Coming out of the center of the back edge of the K68 RGB is this 1.8-meter cable with a stylized connection to make it easier to find in the rear I/O panel. There is not a strap to make transit with this product easy, and Corsair also left out any form of covering to the rubberized cable.
