Corsair K68 RGB Gaming Keyboard Review

TweakTown Rating: 98%Manufacturer: Corsair



We have been using the K68 RGB for quite some time, and overall we are pleased. Others on the VOIP channels are pleased not to hear my keys clacking away, and the softer nature of the Cherry MX Red switches does seem to make movements more fluent in feel. Not once did we run into issues of actions not being recognized, even when mashing multiple keys. Macros come in handy for specific game titles, and once the profile is set and the Macro applied to a key which is easy to reach, we enjoyed using them when applicable. The Windows lock is handy, and being able to disable other keys or combination of keys that can potentially break the immersion of the gameplay is a solid plus too.



Windows and Productivity


Since we are used to stronger springs in our keys, we do still find ourselves making the odd typo here and there, as our fatter fingers do tend to cross onto multiple keys at once. The more we use it, the better we are getting with it for the daily grind, but we are used to this since we switch keyboards so often. Thank all that is holy for auto-correct. Using the K68 RGB as long as we have, we also like the fact that when it comes to writing reviews like this open, with Pandora playing in the background, we get to hear the music rather than the clack of the keystrokes.



There is still some noise when you bottom out the keys, and there is no way of getting around the click of the caps as they return to resting positions, but the noise level is much lower than our go-to keyboard choices. Also, a considerable advantage for those who always have a drink close by when working or gaming, is the rubber membrane. While we chose not to test this feature ourselves, we believe what we see in all of the YouTube videos of people spilling liquids into the keyboard, while everything is still lit up and the keystrokes are still showing up on screen.
