Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Silent Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Ultra-Quiet, Backlit Multicolor LED, Cherry MX SILENT is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quiet mechanical keyboard Quite simply a superb mechanical keyboard if you want to be as quiet and as soft as possible. The keys aren't particularly louder than membrane keys when typing, but the sound still has that mechanical signature to it. Certainly office compatible. The feel of this keyboard is perhaps not for everyone though, as there's no tactile feedback for the keystroke being recognised. The depression is constant and smooth to the base of the key, with no clunk or click. A lot of my colleagues and friends prefer the feedback typical to mechanical keyboards, but I don't. Thank you Corsair, for making this type of key! Oh and it lights up RGB style which is certainly fabulous, but wasn't a main selling point for me. The software to configure it is very flexible though so you can no doubt come up with some amazing patterns and responsive light programs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best... It has been a while since I have owned or used a keyboard like this. I have been used to laptop or low profile keyboards for a number of years. Getting back into playing games, it was necessary to get a keyboard that would be appropriate. Like most, I didn't want a keyboard that would fill the room with "click click click" but instead wanted a mechanical keyboard that would have the feel but still allow me to hear other things around. This keyboard accomplishes this nicely. Sure, it has some noise to it but it is more the key hitting the bottom of its travel than any switch being activated. When it comes to typing on this keyboard, it takes a bit of getting used to but feels good and is just as easy to type as with other keyboards. The extra gaming keys that come with it are nice and as simple as they may be, do help when it comes to playing FPS or other games that would use them. Typing with these keys in place is not a problem either. The back-lighting that this keyboard has is smooth and clear and pretty much any configuration you can think of is possible. The CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) software is something else though. It takes a bit of getting used to and learning how the configurations fit together but once you are used to it, it works and is a reasonably OK utility to use. I have it working so different lighting configurations are active depending on what application is open or running. The CUE software works across all Corsair products well and makes them appear connected. Overall, really good keyboard, comfortable to use, good quality and best of all, quieter than most/all other mechanical keyboards. Lighting is excellant when using in dim or bright conditions. Software takes a bit of playing with. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Keyboard Quite frankly the best keyboard I've owned. Cherry MX Silent keys are great, not totally silent at all, but not as clicky as reds. More like the keyboard "tap" you would expect from any key, minus the switch clicking of the reds. I don't go in for fancy lighting effects, but great to be able to configure the lighting to the intensity and exact colour I prefer. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Mech Keyboard, Bit Pricey and Bulky but Brilliant Even So I'm new to this "Mechanical Keyboard" trend but have always wanted one since they started rolling out. My choice was between this product and a Razor equivalent, I chose this one in the end. The only real drawback; can be a bit bulky if you are new to the mechanical scene like I and I wasn't expecting the keys to be Software: Brilliant, customisable to the millisecond and atom Hardware: Sturdy, strong & tough keys held onto keyboard by reinforced clips, simple tool to remove keys from keyboard, millions of colours for customisation too, can be a bit bulky All in all, brilliant product, while a bit pricey (but is totally worth it if you like the spectrum rainbow like I now do). Would highly recommend, but newcomers should be warned that it is bigger and bulkier than it looks in the images and make sure you have a fairly large desk space to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but awesome man I love this thing. I know it's expensive. and the lighting can be a bit of a wow feature till you get bored of it.....but I love it...... the only thing it needs is some sort of feedback in games for example you could have the keyboard (or certain keys) say go from green to red for health or something like that....pipe dream I know.... apart from that it's just a nice piece of kit. if you are like me and get a keyboard and keep it for years......despite it being rubbish just treat yourself to one of these beasts.....keep it for 5 or 10 years and then it's expense is not so's just a nice thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor instruction on site and PDF The keyboard is definitely quieter. I like the fact that the most used keys for gaming can be replaced by more rugged ones but they are opaque, i.e. light doesn't shine through. The lighting effects are impressive for display. I personally find them irritating if I am playing a game. The software seems to be straight forward, but it is not. You can really really really do more than you think with the keyboard lighting. I wish the manual or instruction is organized in such a way that gives user a very clear choices of what to do with the lighting. I have to read in between the lines in order to find that I can configure different keys to have different lighting. But as to how exactly to do it, good luck. By this time, I gave up. I just configure the entire keyboard in one colour and get on with my games.... Overall, it is a good keyboard but really just a bit pricey for what it is. They really are charging us for the wowing effect instead of being a quiet, sturdy, solid, good feel keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cool keyboard this keyboard is my first mechanical EVER. its pretty cool looking with al these lightining effects. the keys feel soft, sometimes i accidentally press keys because i am used to scissor keys and i tend to leave my fingers hang on the keys, but this keyboard is sensitive. i still have to get used to these big keys, i most of the time misstype or missclick a gun ingame... but other than that i love it. should last me for 5 years.HOPEFULLY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality keybaord, if a little bit pricey. Firstly, I'm no PC gamer...I bought this keyboard because I need backlighting and I prefer mechanical keyboards over the rubber dome type. I mentioned it's pricey but I have to say, you do get what you pay for I guess. Very well built keyboard; albeit all plastic it's very robust and has a good weighty feel to it. The backlighting is excellent; ALL keys are well and evenly lit with 3 levels of intensity as well as OFF. In regards to the 'silent' aspect, which is what will be attracting a lot of people I would imagine, it's not silent in the true sense of the word but then I think anyone knowing mechanical keyboards wouldn't expect it to be is only marginally louder than a rubber domed keyboard and certainly a lot quieter than the previous mechanical keyboard I owned. The be honest, just blown away by how configurable the lighting actually is; for me, I have profiles set up for various programs to colour code individual keys and as I switch between these programs so the keyboard alters the colour scheme accordingly. If you want to be amazed just go to your favourite video channel and take look at the demos. The software for configuring lighting and macros etc also covers Corsair RGB mice which was a bonus. I really can't fault this keyboard...well, maybe a couple of things but they are personal preference I suppose: For the price I would have liked a braided cable and not a thick rubber/plastic thing and possibly the addition of a scroll wheel for volume. I realise though that this is predominantly a gaming keyboard so I doubt that the latter is a big deal in the middle of a game, especially when using headphones. If you're in any doubt about laying at this sort of money for a keyboard like I was but you have the it, you'll be happy with the result.

Questions & Answers

USB Pass Through Port

Is the USB pass through port, USB 2 or USB 3?
Asked by: Stomper42
It is USB 2.0 - I tried it with a USB 3.0 device but would only run at USB 2.0 speeds even though it was plugged into USB 3.0 port. Hope that helps.

Are normal WASD keys included?

Does the keyboard come with normal WASD keys which can be replaced or are the different type of keys the only ones you get?
Asked by: Borg
Hello, This will come with the textured keycaps as additional extras. The standard keys would also be included. Regards,
