If you’re a hardcore, serious gamer looking for a lighting fast, highly reliable gaming keyboard then the Corsair Gaming K95 RGB PLATINUM Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is definitely worth considering.
This compact mechanical keyboard comes with an aluminum chassis and mechanical keys, which make it, feel very solid and ideal for use on both a desk or on your lap. A few other great features you’ll get when you choose the Corsair K95 include a USB passthrough, the ability to tweak the volume, players or skip tracks mid-game via media controls on the top left of the keyboard, six programmable macro keys on the left edge and the 19 zone ‘LightEdge’, which is a programmable RGB light strip along the top of the keyboard.
Looking at performance, the K95 mechanical keyboard is built around responsiveness and it is, without argument, one of the most reactive keyboards around. For gaming, this makes it a great choice for FPS shooters and games where reaction speed is a key factor but for office environments or mixed living areas it can be a little noisy and will take some getting used too. On the plus side though the keys are nicely spaced out and aligned so those consistent typos should be a thing of the past, once you’re used to it.
It would be hard to argue against the Corsair Gaming K95 RGB PLATINUM Mechanical Gaming Keyboard not being one of the best gaming keyboards around but all this impressive functionality doesn’t come cheap at $329.
