Corsair has a formidable name in the world of gaming peripherals and is endorsed by some of the top players in the world.
They also house the best FPS gaming mouse and mechanical keyboard because Razer is known to be overpriced besides being unreliable. Logitech is just not cool enough which makes them the best of both worlds. The company has come up with two different products, both of them affordable yet packed to the brim with features. If you are a newbie PC gamer or a Pro looking forward to have some additional accessories for another system, we can highly recommend this pair.
Strafe RGB Silent Keyboard
The Corsair Strafe RGB Silent keyboard uses Cherry MX switches on all keys and has RGB colored individual key lighting. That’s more than enough for a gaming enthusiast. Additional features include a USB port, wrist pad, programmable functionalities and silent operation. Not everyone is fond of those clicks and clangs but achieving it using Cherry MX keys is a feat that Corsair has achieved with this product.
More technical details can be found in their official website.
Katar is an ambidextrous mouse from Corsair. For right handed gamers, this is probably not the best news because those curves found in models like the Logitech G502 and Razer Deathadder is just too convenient to let go off. But, this mouse is extremely cheap at $40 but has all the pro features of a gaming mouse making it the best value for money and usability.
The Corsair Katar gaming mouse has 8,000 DPI optical sensor (not laser!) which is good news and weighs just 85 grams. The customization interface is reliable and it has a dedicated Pro mode. The product is an ideal accessory for FPS gamers and Moba players. It also supports on the fly DPI adjustment.
The last in the line-up is the Katar gaming mouse mat made of a textile weave surface. If you have another mouse sitting on your desk, just opt for the small, medium or large sized variants of this pad if you find it good enough. It’s just another offering to go for.
Corsair has been doing good in this segment but the Logitech refreshed line-up is due in 2016 and Razer may have their own big guns to unleash. Once the next gen sets in, we expect to see some interesting PC gaming peripherals get launched in the market in the first quarter of the year.
