Corsair RGB Wireless Gaming Keyboard, model K57

The Corsair K57 RGB wireless gaming keyboard is a decent gaming keyboard that has features found on high-end keyboards, but with vaulted rubber switches. It has full RGB backlighting and individually lit keys, which you can customize from the software. Each key, except the Windows lock key, is a programmable macro and there are six additional dedicated macros on the left side. Unfortunately, the keys are heavy to press, feel soft, and you may be able to write exhaustively on this keyboard for a long time. However, this keyboard can be connected to up to three devices simultaneously via Bluetooth and the USB receiver and remains connected to Bluetooth devices even when connected.Corsair K57 RGB Wireless Gaming Keyboard

The Corsair K57 is a very good gaming keyboard. It has all the features you’d expect on a gaming keyboard, like FULL RGB lighting with individually lit keys. All keys, except the Windows lock key, are macro programmable, and there are six dedicated macros on the left side. Unfortunately, rubber dome switches are heavy to press and don’t offer the fastest gaming experience.

The Corsair K57 is a decent keyboard for most uses. With full RGB backlighting and programmable macro keys, it’s ideal for programmers or casual players. It can connect with up to three devices at the same time, so you can use it with your tablet and computer at the same time. Unfortunately, the rubber dome switches are heavy to press and offer a mediocre writing experience, but luckily, it comes with a good rest on the wrist.

The Corsair K57 is not unused for mobile devices. It can be connected with up to three devices via Bluetooth and its USB receiver. It’s fully compatible with Android and most alphanumeric keys work on iPadOS and iOS. However, it is large and not ideal to carry.Corsair K57 RGB Wireless Gaming Keyboard

Decent for use in the office. The Corsair K57 has good ergonomics and comes with a good break on the wrist, but the keys are heavy to press and can get tired after a long period of typing. Fortunately, the keys are quiet and don’t disturb others around you, and if you listen to music while you work, there are dedicated media keys.

The Corsair K57 is good for programming. Each key, except the Windows lock key, is a programmable macro and there are also six dedicated macro keys. It has full RGB lighting and good ergonomics, but unfortunately, the keys feel heavy and could cause fatigue after long programming sessions.

The Corsair iCUE software allows you to configure macros and customize the RGB backlight. You can also change the polling speed, turn on sleep mode, start associating with the receiver, and activate a battery indicator from the system taskbar on your computer system. Unfortunately, the K57 keyboard has no built-in memory and the software does not offer cloud synchronization. Photo: Corsair
