Corsair Raptor K40 Keyboard Review

 

A few years ago, we witnessed the return of mechanical keyboards and ever since then companies have been fighting a marketing war about whose keyboard is better. The truth however is that mechanical keyboards, even in their least expensive...

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...

Gorgeous lighting ; Intuitive, attractive design ; Good macro functionality

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

The Raptor K40 is a decent keyboard with a cool lighting gimmick, but it's hard to think of any reason to spend $80 for it.

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

Given all else you get, the K40 is an excellent investment at about half the price of top-shelf gaming models like the Ryos. If you’re not wedded to a mechanical keyfeel, you can get plenty of mileage out of this board and spend the difference on games.

Very nice keyboard

 

Been using it for a week or so. Very responsive keys, good sound, good lighting. One minor downfall is that there is no per-key lighting, its all or none. You can set it to cycle through but you cant, for example, set certain keys to one colour and the...

Fantastico!

 

Great keyboard with very responsive keys, lovely led effect that will match any rig, pretty neat options for macros, i love that most of the keys can be pulled off for ease of cleaning the those hard to reach places.

CORSAIR Raptor K40 Gaming Keyboard

 

Well made, love the windows key lock button. Colour options are great. Easy to clean to. Nice feel to the keys can sound a little loud if gaming at night.

The brightness from the num lock key... easy fix was to stick something over it.
