Corsair’s K57 Keyboard; No Wires, No Clicky Switches

Could Corsair’s new RGB wireless K57 keyboard with rubber dome switches actually satisfy a self confessed keyboard snob such as the person who reviewed this keyboard at Techgage?  It can connect via USB 3/3.1 Type A and has a fancy SLIPSTREAM USB receiver which connects the keyboard via Low Power 2.4GHz connection, or plain old Bluetooth 4.2 and there is even a slot on the bottom of the ‘board to clip it into when not in use. 

You can expect battery life of up to 35 hours with standard lighting, 175 hours without lighting on normal Bluetooth or up to 40 hours with lighting, 200 without on SLIPSTREAM.  Pop on over to see if the various features of the K57 were enough to tempt the mechanical maniac to consider a little rubber.

Keyboard snobs didn’t become snobs for no good reason. There are a lot of crappy keyboards out there. Many feel that a keyboard that doesn’t have mechanical switches in it are not worthy of their attention, and in the past this has been a good argument. With advancements in rubber dome-switches and the like, do they deserve another chance?
