Corsair K55 RGB Review

 

The Corsair K55 RGB gaming keyboard is one of the more affordable big-brand, dedicated gaming keyboards that you can buy right now – this device will only set you back $50 in the US and £40 in the UK .

Loads of features Very affordable High-quality membrane keys

Not as fast as mechanical switches Middling built quality Eight-key rollover

Our Corsair K55 RGB review illustrates that this is a deeply impressive bit of kit. When it comes to its typing action, it’s one of the best membrane options around: fast, consistent and comfortable, with a robust and reliable action.

Corsair Gaming K55 RGB review: The K55 will sate most of your gaming needs for an affordable price

 

A good price, solid build quality and decent features make the K55 a winner

Good build quality ; Better value than its rivals ; Keys are heavy and consistent

Eight-key rollover ; Poor RGB LED versatility ; Font on supplementary keys is too small

Otherwise, the lower price, good action and solid features make the K55 our favourite membrane keyboard available right now. If mechanical units are too expensive for you, the K55 will sate most of your needs for half the price.

CORSAIR K55 RGB PRO XT Gaming Keyboard

 

CORSAIR's K55-series gets an update for 2021 expanding lighting functionality, but can we fall in love with a membrane keyboard?

+ Vibrant per-key RGB lighting (XT model only) + Dedicated macro keys + Easy on-the-fly macro recording. + Solid Construction + iCUE software that meaningfully expands functionality + 12-key rollover around the important WASD zone + No clearly...

- Membrane keyboard/rubber-dome switches - Media keys not illuminated - No onboard-profiles - Premium price for a membrane keyboard, particularly in the UK/EU

We spent about a week with the K55 RGB PRO XT as a primary keyboard for work and gaming, and after every session came back to one central question: “Do you like rubber dome switches?”. Any assessment of the design is dominated by that point, to the...

CORSAIR K55 RGB Gaming Keyboard

 

One of the best at this price point if you’re looking for an RGB Keyboard, that functionally works like a mechanical. Not everyone is looking to get a mechanical so it’s great for that.

Some keys could be a little more responsive. The shift key sometimes isn’t as snappy as I’d hope.

Media keys are great and necessary after having the k30 previously.

The rgb needs software or else you'll be stuck with 'breathing' rgb

CORSAIR K55 RGB Gaming Keyboard

 

I use the keyboard for gaming and selected it for the extra macro keys. It works excellently while looking great with my set up. Great quality for the price.

While it advertises you can programme the macro keys without downloading software, it is incredibly glitchy (eg, opening extra windows when you only wanted it to press cntrl+g). However the software is free and the macro keys work really well when...
