Corsair K65 RGB Rapid Fire Edition Gaming Keyboard Review


The K65 comes with a braided split end USB cable, by this we mean it has two USB plugs.

One powers the keyboard itself and the second works for the on-board USB pass-through on the back side of the boardDSC01366_Fotor_clipped_rev_1

Measuring in at 356mm X 166mm  (210mm w/wrist rest) x 37mm the keyboard is small but doesn’t feel crowed. The removal of the number pad is to thank for the compact feel of the K65. Right out the  gate if you’re not used to keyboards lacking the number pad this will take some getting used to.

Unique to the Rapid Fire edition compared to the original K65 is the larger block font as well as the tread-like feel to the space bar. Mentioned earlier there are inter-changeable keys for your game preference, MOBA or FPS. These keys are game-specific as they have grey tops, are treaded like the space bar and also have a restriction of movement. What we mean by that is say you’re using the MOBA keys, the “Q” and “R” are angled towards the center so you can stay centered without having to look at your keyboard. Corsair K65
