Corsair Strafe RGB MK.2

The Corsair Strafe RGB MK.2 is the successor of the Corsair Gaming Strafe RGB. The keyboard is available since June 2018.

Silent Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

The keyboard looks very similar to the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2. This similarity has a reason, both keyboards come with the same functionality. They both feature RGB illumination, N-Key rollover, dedicated media keys, a volume scroller, macro support and an USB passthrough. Also, both keyboards come with a detachable wrist rest and extra textured keycaps for shooters and MOBA games.

The specialty of the Corsair Strafe RGB MK.2 is that it is considered to be a silent mechanical gaming keyboard. The construction is therefore out of plastic and not aluminum like the K70 RGB MK.2. Furthermore, the keyboard is only available with Cherry MX Red and Cherry MX Red Silent switches.

"The Corsair Strafe MK.2 is a good choice for gamers who want a keyboard with Cherry MX Silent switches. However, we feel the improvements made aren’t dramatic enough for existing Strafe owners to run out and buy the MK.2. "

"Mit der Strafe RGB MK.2 hat Corsair eine vergleichsweise leise mechanische Gaming-Tastatur im Programm. Das Gesamtpaket rundet der Hersteller mit guter Verarbeitung, hoher Präzision und sinnvollen Extras ab. Lediglich der hohe Preis, die nur gute Helligkeit und der fehlende Klinkenanschluss fallen negativ auf."
