Corsair K55 RGB Pro XT Keyboard Review 2

Conclusion

The Corsair K55 Pro XT is a budget friendly gaming orientated full size keyboard, which is built with Corsair sturdiness, and just enough premium touches to make it acceptable for the slightly higher price over the standard K55. It’s a sizable keyboard, at around 19″ across, so consider your available space. I found the key switches to be fast for regular typing, acceptable for gaming and fairly quiet. I did not get any double registrations, and overall I felt like it was precise to type on. The feel of the keys was one of initial high resistance, rapidly decreasing, with a smooth follow-through and fast return with no click.

If mechanical key switches are a bit too noisy for your tastes, yet you still want a gaming keyboard with high quality programmable RGB, credible 12 key-rollover protection, audio transport controls, and some macro programmability, then at $70 you should consider this keyboard. This is an upper range entry level gaming keyboard in my opinion, which is also comfortable for regular “day-job” typing. Don’t forget the K55 Pro XT does include a soft-touch palm rest, and has real world dust and liquid resistance. Not a bad combination from Corsair, but you should explore up market alternatives and do consider a try-before-you-buy if possible to experience the rubber dome keys for yourself.
