Corsair Strafe RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The left side of the Strafe RGB MK.2 is of the black plastic lower half of the frame. Just above it is the opaque plastic strip which lights up white, and the top cover is screwed on over that. The bodies of the switches are transparent and are exposed to flood the keyboard with RGB lighting.
All seventy-four of the primary keys is what we expected. At the top is a trio of buttons, shifting the Corsair name to the center this time. The font is easy to read, and the size is large, and we do like that Corsair kept the textured space bar too.
The three buttons above the first set of F-keys are marked with icons. The first is the button to swap between the three profiles; the second is to turn off the lighting or have it on in three levels of intensity. The last button is to lock out the Windows key, but with software, can also lock out others.
On the right end are the typical thirty keys with commands, arrows, and the number pad. We also see the three lock indicating LEDs at the top, the five multimedia keys and volume scroll wheel, and we may as well comment on the highly contrasting white steel plate.
On other models we have tested, we either received red or "sped" silver switches. This is the first we have seen the pink "silent" option. The feel is linear, and tougher to use than silvers, maybe even more so than red switches as well. We do know they are smooth, and most of the noise heard is from the key resetting, not when it is used.
The keycaps are the industry standard. These are single shot keycaps where the mold takes in white plastic. Once completed and free from the spring, they are then painted black, leaving the legends unpainted for lighting purposes.
