Corsair STRAFE MK.2 Mechanical Keyboard Overview

The Corsair STRAFE MK.2 RGB is the newest iteration in the STRAFE family, selling for $139.99 (Amazon | Newegg). The previous generation is a crowd favorite, but the MK.2 has new upgrades in the LED department. Brighter, longer lasting LEDs and a more advanced controller, and dedicated multimedia controls.


When you first pull this keyboard out of the box, you’re greeted with a regular looking keyboard that features an over-sized wrist-rest.

Don’t use or prefer a wrist-rest? No problem, it is easily removed. Removing the wrist-rest also reduces the depth footprint of this keyboard, and gives it a more minimalistic look. Corsair-Strafe-MK2-Gaming-Mechanical-Keyboard-Front-angled

From this angle, you can see that the key switches do sit up off the PCB, making them a bit tall in comparison to a traditional, membrane keyboard. Adjusting to this profile will come easily and you’ll being typing at full speed in no time thanks to Corsair’s use of OEM profile keycaps.


From this angle, removing the wrist rest gives you a more traditional typing experience that some (including me) prefer. For me, this feels more natural, although I can see the value of the wrist rest when gaming.
