Corsair Raptor K40 Review — Colorful Language


The Raptor K40 is a decent keyboard with a cool lighting gimmick. Beyond that, it's hard to think of a reason to spend $80 for it. If you absolutely must have a membrane gaming keyboard, the Raptor K40 is one of the better ones. Even so, you might be...

Feels like a much cheaper keyboard ; No wrist rest ; Expensive for what it does

Deep macro functionality, Key plungers set above closed keyboard surface, Side-splayed feet, Color-configurable backlighting

Not a mechanical board, Next to no macro instructions, No help system
