Corsair K68 RGB

The Corsair K68 RGB is a dust and spill resistant mechanical keyboard, just like its predecessor K68 Red. The new model was introduced from Corsair in January 2018.

Corsair K68 RGB Features

The keyboard is very similar to the predecessor model K68 Red. It features Cherry MX Red switches, dedicated media controls and a detachable wrist rest. For gamers there is 100% anti-ghosting via n-key-rollover and a gaming mode to lock the windows key. The only real difference between the two keyboards is in regards of the background illumination: The K68 only features red backlighting, while the K68 RGB supports full RGB lighting. Individual per-key customization, multiple pre-installed lighting effects and macro programming are available via the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE).

Water resistant but not completely waterproof

Corsair advertises the K68 RGB as spill and dust resistant mechanical keyboard (just like the K68 Red), tested up to IP32 (referring to the International Protection Rating: http://www.dsmt.com/resources/ip-rating-chart/). This rating basically means, that the keyboard is protected against dripping water, but not necessary against spraying or splashing water. Therefore, the K68 RGB might be more robust than most other keyboards, but it is by no means waterproof.
