Our friends over at Corsair more or less have their bread and butter memory products to rely on to bring in the dough, and these are no ordinary memory products but rather, ones that are on the high end side of things. The thing is, they have also learned not to place all of their eggs in a single basket, which is why it made sense for them to take the plunge into the world of gaming peripherals. It is also nice to know that Corsair has also brought along with them their sense of achievement, which means you would not end up with slipshod work on their side – and their latest product would be the all new STRAFE Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.
Corsair Gaming’s red-backlit STRAFE mechanical gaming keyboard would bring along with it dynamic backlighting for that added visual punch (and hopefully, one that helps you cast a mean aura to your opponents at BYOC events or LAN parties) as well as Cherry MX key switches, all for an asking price of $109.99 a pop. Being different from other gaming keyboard offerings in the past like the Corsair Gaming RGB Keyboard, the STRAFE mechanical gaming keyboard’s brilliant red backlighting is fully customizable, allowing you to have a virtually unlimited number of lighting configurations as well as effects. Not only that, hardcore gamers will also appreciate the fact that each of these keys can be programmed with automated macros via CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) software. Users are able to select from half a dozen unique lighting effects or to craft their own custom profiles as well as share them online later on.
Apart from that, the German-made Cherry MX red switches with gold contacts would pave the way for fast, precise key presses, while the fully programmable brilliant red LED backlighting delivers unrivaled personalization. In addition, there is also an USB pass-through port for easy connections, while textured and contoured FPS/MOBA keycaps accompanied by 100% anti-ghosting technology with 104-key rollover makes your gaming experience a smooth and seamless one. There’s now one less thing to blame when you lose your next match, I guess.
