Corsair's new K55 RGB keyboard and Harpoon RGB mouse offer prospective buyers the bling factor of 16.7 million colors without the swollen sticker prices and key noise that often accompany "RGB gaming" peripherals.
The K55 RGB keyboard is Corsair's lowest-priced keyboard. Mechanical switches give way to rubber domes to reach its price point, but Corsair makes lemonade from lemons by touting the key switches as "quiet," while possessing a "satisfying feel." Onlookers will hopefully be impressed by the three-zone backlighting with selectable colors, and the five dynamic lighting modes including color pulse, color shift, and rainbow wave.
The six macro keys can be programmed without installing any software, too. Gaming-oriented features include 8-key rollover, a 1000-Hz polling rate, and and a Windows-key lockout. Dedicated multimedia keys and a detachable wrist rest complement the package.
The Harpoon RGB mouse is Corsair's most affordable pointing device. The mouse is built around a 6000-DPI optical sensor and offers a 1000-Hz polling rate. The RGB LED illumination and all six mouse buttons are fully programmable with Corsair's CUE software. The mouse measures 4.4" x 2.7" x 1.6" (11.5 cm x 6.8 cm x 4.0cm) and has a six-foot (1.8m) cable in a rubber sheath.
