K57 RGB Wireless Continued
Corsair also included a full set of multimedia keys. The top section deals with the volume, where you can mute, decrease, or increase the volume, respectively. The second row of multimedia keys allows you to stop a track, select the previous track, play or pause them, or advance to the next track. These buttons are slightly stiffer than the force for the rest of the keys, and it also lacks any tactile feel, just pressure, then the switch is fully collapsed.
The right side of the K57 is again, not that exciting. We have extended the feet under the keyboard to show the increase of the angle, which in turn has all but the first two rows of keys leaning towards the user, while the first two are nearly level at this time.
Dead center of the back edge of the K57, we find the connectivity point for the cable, but along with that is a switch. We have found that no matter which type of connectivity is required if this switch shows the red color, the keyboard is off. Only when it is moved to show green with the keyboard function.
About even with where the F2 key is on the top of the K57, at the back, we find the wireless dongle. It is kept in place in the slot in the back of the keyboard, so it is easy to locate if not currently used. The cover of the dongle is highly textured on the sides to make it easier to remove from a port due to its short stature, while at the same time, sporting a Corsair log and the SLIPSTREAM wireless logo as well.
Once the keyboard has been flipped to expose its underbelly, we see a few things worth a mention. First is the sticker in the middle, which has the model and serial number on it, while all around it, in the textured plastic, we see all but one of the screw holes are exposed, the last of which is under the sticker. A pair of rounded feet support the back while the front edge uses skinny but wide feet, and we even see drain holes present by them, but there are also another pair of rounded feet in the middle.
Before we tear this keyboard apart, we also wanted to make mention of the flip-out feet. They are sturdy and lock into place well enough, but we do wish they offered rubber ends on them.
