K60 RGB PRO

Corsair K60 RGB Pro

The Corsair K60 RGB Pro was introduced in October 2020. The naming seems a bit odd, since there has been a Corsair Vengeance K60 (Performance FPS) back in 2012 and the two keyboards don’t have much in common.

Corsair’s first keyboard with Cherry Viola Switches

The Corsair K60 RGB Pro is a mid-range gaming keyboard packed with versatile RGB lightning, gaming mode and full n-key rollover. It is the first time, that Corsair features Cherry’s new Viola switches. Those are more budget-friendly than traditional Cherry MX switches and were designed to offer a lower entry price into the world of mechanical keyboards. They have transparent housing and cross-linear switch characteristics, which means that their actuation consists of two stages requiring different levels of force. The most similar MX switch is the Cherry MX Red.

Variety of K60 Pro versions

There are several variants of the keyboard available:

  • K60 Pro: a cheaper version with only single-colored backlighting (red color)
  • K60 Pro RGB: the standard version with RGB illumination
  • K60 Pro RGB SE: features not only RGB illumination but also PBT double-shot keycaps; furthermore, a magnetic detachable wrist rest is included
  • K60 Pro Low Profile: is built with Cherry MX Low Profile switches (instead of Cherry Viola)

Versions: Corsair K60 RGB Pro | Corsair K60 RGB Pro SE | Corsair K60 Pro

"The design of the K60 RGB Pro is clean and professional, the per key RGB LEDs really do look the part with the low-profile key caps. The build quality is exactly what we’d expect for an upper-mid-range keyboard. If it supported Cherry’s Viola hot-swappable feature, PBT keycaps and a removable USB cable, it would almost be perfect."

"The overall keyboard looks and feels suitably premium, as it should do for its £110 asking fee. It's very aesthetically pleasing ..."
