• Static lighting: Change any key on the keyboard to a colour and brightness setting of your choice. You can create, save, and load custom patterns for your favourite games.
• Colour cycling: Cycle through multiple colours with your choice of speed and colour palettes. You can set either the whole keyboard to scroll, or just the keys you want.
• Waves and ripples: Customize the colour palette, direction, duration, and velocity, and have the wave flow across the entire keyboard, or just the keys you want.
• Reactive typing: Set up single-key reactive typing, or create a multi-key ripple effect. You can choose single-layer lighting, where keys light up as you type, or multi-layer, and have the keys change colour.

Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Silent Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Backlit Multicolor LED, Cherry MX SILENT, with Media Keys is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiptoptap Great keyboard, bought to replace aging budget model for gaming pc. Difference in quality and precision is stark. Silent keys are definitely quieter than standard and aren't intrusive. No faults with buying refurbished item, at the price these offer fantastic value. RGB is great fun, but not necessary if you don't want it, just adds a little extra wow factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I am really happy with this product it works perfectly well and is easy to clean and i really like the wrist attatchment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard...unbelievable price although this was refurbished it was indistinguishable from a new one. It works brilliantly and I saved a fortune over buying brand new. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money This refurbished keyboard is as good as new with no scratches or faults on the keys or lighting, at a fraction of the cost of a new Strafe. An excellent introduction to Mechanical Keyboards for my daughter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb keyboard with some impressive software features. Review for refurbished version. A quality well illuminated keyboard with easy to use software that allows for a host of various colour profiles and customisation (it's also possible to download RGB profiles). Profiles can be set to start with applications/games which is also a nice feature. I bought a refurbished board which initially turned up with a faulty wrist rest. It took a few emails with Scan and an RMA to replace the wrist rest however this was relatively easy to do, it took about 2 weeks in total. The refurbished keyboard itself is faultless and arrived in as new condition. Switch preference is a personal choice, I found the Cherry mx silent red switches to be quiet and provide enough feedback with a good actuation force. This keyboard has two USB leads, from memory it requires both to be plugged into USB 2 or just one if using USB 3, it also features a USB passthrough. All in all it's a pleasure to both game and work on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Keyboard ever except... Love the absolute heck out of the keyboard except came with faulty right arrow key, had to spend a few days fixing it making sure it works, sometimes it will act up but overall everything works well other than the faulty key.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Keyboard, Don't like the Keyswitch This was my first mechanical keyboard and to anyone wondering whether or not making the leap from membranes is worth it, it absolutely is. Nothing compares to the typing/gaming experience you get on a mechanical keyboard. The switches are a delight to type on and feel satisfying to actuate and in my opinion, the MX Red switches were too easy to press and I found myself sometimes accidentally pressing a key I did not want to. This made typing on it uncomfortable. No descriptions/reviews/videos on the internet can effectively communicate this idea. If you are thinking about buying a mechanical keyboard, the only way to know if you want one is to go out and try one. That being said, I can't say 100% that the money you need to pay for a mechanical keyboard is worth it. £110 is pretty steep unless you're an enthusiast. If you're casually typing or doing work or gaming - CS:GO for example, your keyboard won't change much. It's all about your personal preferences and what makes you comfortable. I've had my Steelseries APEX for around 4 years and even given all the perks of a mechanical keyboard, I still prefer my APEX - a membrane keyboard - because that's what I've been typing on for years. I'm sure that given enough time I'd have gotten used to the Strafe as well, but I only had 30 days to try out the keyboard before I couldn't get a refund so :P TL:DR Mechanical keyboards are 100% worth it, only if you have the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I needed to game quietly and in the dark so... this keyboard is great for that, takes just a few hours to get used to the lower pressure threshold keys, space bar is still quite 'clicky' in my opinion so typing silently is a bit of a stretch. I have never had an issue w Corsair products and was recommended to them by a friend. I have a Corsair PSU which i have never had any issues with. personally speaking i would recommend the lower warranty variant of this keyboard as I believe Corsair take the manufacture and build of their products very seriously, it certainly comes through on the quality of the build and the quality of the recommendations I've had for their products. the £140 version of this keyboard comes w a 2 year warranty for a keyboard it is heavy and for that i would like some metal casing or metal trim. The USB cable that comes prefixed is quite chunky/bulky, not an issue for me but might be for some. apart from that solid build 4/5 I was lucky to get mine factory refurbished for under £100 inc vat with a years warranty which i think is a fair price value 3/5

Questions & Answers

What accessories go with this? and what does new\refurbished mean

Hi does the keyboard come with the extra textured keys and wrist support? Also what does new/refurbished mean? is it new or refurbished? Cheers
Asked by: wilf
Yes to the extra keys and wrist support. New = new Refurbished = refurbished. I bought a refurbished item and it is faultless. Not sure what constitutes refurbished, assume they are either demo models, returns or faulty items which have been repaired, checked and repacked (brown box). I tend to buy refurbished if possible (provided they maintain the warranty) as it means they have invariably have received higher levels of QC checks and are offered at much lower prices, with no detriment (provided warranty is still offered).

I need it to be as silent as dead mouse :)
Asked by: ceska02
It's not silent as a dead mouse, no keyboard will be. It is noticeably quieter than standard keyboard.
