Cor­sair has a great num­ber of key­board of­fer­ings, from the mid-range all the way up to the mighty K95 Plat­inum. The Strafe sits some­where in the mid­dle and this re­vamped ver­sion adds a few fea­tures which im­prove on the orig­i­nal de­sign. The most ap­par­ent of these up­dates are the smooth vol­ume roller, the back­lit logo and the raised me­dia keys.

This key­board is avail­able with Cherry MX Red or Silent key switches. The ver­sion we tested fea­tured the Silent switches, these feel very sim­i­lar to the Red switches which is a good thing, they have the same ac­tu­a­tion force (45g), but are qui­eter and will serve you well for both gam­ing and gen­eral of­fice sit­u­a­tions.

The build qual­ity feels up to scratch, it is housed in a plas­tic body but there is no ap­par­ent ‘flex’ and the alu­minium top plate gives it a bit of a pre­mium look and feel. Cor­sair has once again made a very good key­board that is priced ac­cord­ingly and is a joy to use.
