Strafe RGB MK.2 Continued

The right edge of the Strafe RGB MK.2 is a near reverse image of the other edge, but we have increased the angle of attack by extending the feet. Rather than flat keys, the higher levels of keycaps are now angled towards the user.

The cable to connect the keyboard to the PC is centrally located. To the left of it is the USB 2.0 pass-through port, and sends a signal through the main cable.

The 1.8 meters of cable starts thick and braided. It reaches a gray cover where the thicker cable is split into two leads, which terminate in USB 2.0 connectors, one for the keyboard, and another for the port, both marked.

Corsair did not waste time and energy making the bottom of the Strafe RGB MK.2 special. As it sits, there are four tiny rubber pads, but they do grip well, and the product sticker is found in the middle.

The flip out feet is angled towards the sides of the keyboard so they will not collapse when it comes time to move the keyboard. However, while covering one aspect, the feet are solid plastic, and with no rubber for grip, we found the Strafe RGB MK.2 will move around more with the feet out.

Once power is sent to the keyboard, it comes to life in a brilliant display of RGB lighting. Both sides of the keyboard are glowing white while the rainbow effect flows across the keys, and the profile and LED keys also illuminate and can be changed, but not the trio of white lock LEDs to the right of the nameplate.
