Corsair K65 RGB Mini Review

Today we’re taking a look at Corsair’s first 60% keyboard, the K65 RGB Mini. Despite its diminutive size, this keyboard isn’t short on features – including a detachable USB-A to USB-C cable, full n-key rollover, 100% anti-ghosting, Cherry MX Red switches, 8,000Hz polling rate and more! Is it really worth the high asking price of £109.99?

Pros

  • Travel friendly.
  • Excellent amount of function keys including mouse control.
  • Detachable USB-C cable.
  • Offers some features you would expect from a full size keyboard.
  • Solid build quality without much flex.

Cons

  • High price point.
  • Installed spacebar is ABS not PBT, as is the spare Corsair ESC key.
  • No flip out feet (it’s fixed height).
  • No wireless control.
  • Switches are not hot-swappable.

KitGuru says: The K65 RGB Mini is a good example of a mini keyboard, it looks great and still sports many of the features you would expect from a full-size keyboard. However, having a wireless capability and hot-swappable switches would have made sense for the price point because there are currently a few 60/65% keyboards that have more or less the same feature-set for less.
