At the Computex 2017 exhibition, Corsair has introduced its new K68 mechanical keyboard for gamers. At first glance, we can mistakenly think that it’s a previously launched Corsair K63, which adds a digital keyboard, but the Corsair K68 does even more with dust and water. However, the most shocking thing is the price is only $99.99, and it can be purchased through Amazon store in USA.
Following the success of the K63, the US gaming brand Corsair continues to unveil its new K68 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Unlike the K63, which is just cheap, the K68 features a “water and dust” feature that even high-end models does not have.
First of all, the K68’s design almost identical to the K63, but the big difference being the addition of a numeric keypad. The K63 num-pad shortage will now be satisfied. The K68 also have a hard plastic case, but like many other Corsair products, the finish is kept very high.
The K68 is still limited in choice, as we only have Cherry MX red switches and red LED. If it does not suit your personality, then please condolence. Signals for the K68 (and K63) are 2 millimeters, which means that just by touch, your operation is recorded immediately. This time attached with the wrist rest will be very useful if you use the keyboard for a long time.
However, the most valuable point of the Corsair K68 is that the dust and water resistance to the IP32 standard. Of course, it only controls a certain amount of water, the IP32 standard will basically allow you to dust resist from tools and wires greater than 2.5 millimeters and water spills less than 15 degrees from vertical.
