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...

Although this picture is wrong in a number of ways, it depicts a simple truth: the number that a human can differentiate from one side of the visible wavelength to the other is between five and twenty colors. Females can usually differentiate more...

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.

Corsair Raptor K40 review

 

Admittedly we like the entire Vengeance Keyboard series very much. This is the first Raptor we have tested and admittedly I am impressed. The Raptor series is aimed to be more mainstream, and while it certainly has a somewhat "cheaper" feel opposed to...

CORSAIR Raptor K40 Gaming Keyboard

 

The keys feel really nice and if you don't like mechanical keyboards this is probably the best you're going to get

Software is quite bad. You can get everything working as you want eventually but you'll have to fiddle with it much longer than you'd expect

The keys feel really nice and if you don't like mechanical keyboards this is probably the best you're going to get ; There are some shades (such as cyan or green) that make it look stunning ; The layout allows you to clean the keyboard by simply...

Software is quite bad. You can get everything working as you want eventually but you'll have to fiddle with it much longer than you'd expect ; The F keys are closer to the digits row than you'd expect and you'll sometimes press F11 / F12 instead of...
