Corsair K83 Wireless Review: Gaming Keyboard for Sofa Tried Out

Just a first glance at the image, which is emblazoned on the cardboard, makes it clear that the Corsair K83 Wireless is drastically different from most other peripherals from Corsair. The package it’s in is amazingly small and the picture shows a touchpad and a joystick.

A gaming keyboard for use on the couch is something new. In the past, Corsair has already proven that it is a good pioneer. When RGB lighting became fashionable for keyboards, the US manufacturer was at the forefront.

We have dedicated a few moments to the exceptional new keyboard and subjected it to an extensive test. How it performs in practice, how much it differs from conventional keyboards and what else seemed important to us is explained below.
