Corsair Strafe RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

DOOM & PUBG

 

We have played many a game, for many hours on this keyboard before getting to this review as we wanted to give the new switches a fair shakedown. What we liked initially is that we prefer stiffer switches in our keyboards, and the pink silent switches do just that. When moving around, we were not strafing by accident as our heavy hands lie on the keyboard.

 

Every key we press, no matter how frantic we are, is recorded and sent to the PC, and no matter the combination of keys or fast-paced jiggling to keep from being shot in the head, it all works as intended. While the titles of this section of the review do not bode well for Macros and remapping as much as others do, so we took some time with MOBA and MMORPG titles to test out spamming commands and other types of Macros.

 

We found that no matter what we wanted of the Strafe RGB MK.2 when it came to customizing it to make the game experience more immersive, it handled every request we threw at it.

 

 

Windows and Productivity

 

In the time we have had the Strafe RGB MK.2, we have also written a few reviews to get the feel of it as a typist's solution. Here, the only issue we have is our fat fingers. Our WPM did not go down, and aside from the tactile bump and loud click of our preferred blue switches, it took no time at all to get right into the mix with the pink silent switches from Corsair. Typically when looking at the Cherry MX Red or Speed switches, when it comes to writing long term, they just aren't suited well for that.

 

 

However, the Cherry MX Silent switches we have now have added another option to those who aren't only gamers. Just as the iCUE software ups the level of possibilities for gaming, the same can be said for using Macros and such to make your day at work go by faster, and with less effort. While the Strafe RGB MK.2 is geared to the gamer, this is a product you could take to the office just as easily, and not annoy anyone near you either.
