Corsair K95 RGB Platinum Keyboard Review

Rating: 9.0.

Corsair has a history of impressing us with its gaming keyboards. The new flagship, the K95 RGB Platinum, features per-key RGB backlighting, a new LightEdge LED bar at the top of the keyboard, as well as an aluminium body and dedicated media keys. There are actually so many features I could not possibly list them all in this introductory paragraph – so let's dive right into the review!

On paper, the Corsair K95 RGB Platinum is a very impressive keyboard and you can bet I was looking forward to get my hands on it for this review. Read on for a complete look at all the new features, the software and the day-to-day experience of using the new flagship from Corsair.
