Corsair K63 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Review

Rating: 8.0.

We’re slowly starting to see wireless mechanical keyboards hit the mainstream, and to tap into this new trend Corsair has released its first wireless keyboard, aptly named the K63 Wireless. If you have ever used the original K63, the K63 Wireless is essentially the same thing but with the option for a wireless connection via a 2.4GHz dongle or over Bluetooth. At £119.99, does that make the K63 Wireless good value for money?

Despite the original K63 keyboard being one of Corsair’s lower-tier options, it still boasts genuine Cherry MX switches, dedicated multimedia keys and an included wrist-rest. These features all carry over to the K63 Wireless as well, but now you have the option to connect the keyboard to your PC without using a cable. It’s definitely convenient, but is it worth the extra outlay? Let’s find out.
