In a world once again dominated by clicky keyboards a new marketing gimmick has emerged, silent keyboards. The Corsair’s Strafe RGB MX Silent keyboard still uses Cherry switches but these particular switches are linear and so do not make noise when depressed. If you like Cherry Red switches this keyboard will still feel comfortable as the keys still require 45g of actuation pressure, though they will feel different at the end of the stroke. The keyboard still retains the LED backlighting of other Corsair Strafe keyboards and you can control your display with the Corsair Utility Engine. Check out Benchmark Reviews for more on this hybrid mechanical keyboard.
"The glut of mechanical keyboards with per-key RGB lighting continues with the release of Corsair’s Strafe RGB Cherry MX Silent series. In addition to features such as extremely versatile programmable lighting, a pass-through USB port, optional textured key caps, and a detachable wrist rest, Corsair adds a unique to them (for now) “silent” version of the Cherry MX Red key switch."
