Earlier last year I reviewed the K95 RGB Platinum XT. Corsair have, however, outdone themselves once again and has released their brand new K100, which brings with it multiple new features.
The most prominent new feature is, of course, the “Wheel” you see in the top left side. Is this a gimmick though or is it actually useful? I’ll get to that shortly. First up though, are the keyboard’s tech specs:

The Corsair K100 quite literally screams premium at the top of its lungs, much as the K95 RGB Platinum XT did. The keyboard’s overall design follows a similar scheme to the existing K95 range. However, for the K100, Corsair held nothing back.
Every single thing that made the K95 Platinum XT a great keyboard is also featured or improved upon with the K100. There’s far more on offer here too, so even though you’re paying a slightly higher price for the K100, you’re definitely getting your money’s worth. Getting into the new features right off the bat, the K100’s iCUE Control Wheel is the star of the show.

Corsair have also opted to swap out the plastic clips on the bottom of the palm rest with an easy to use pair of magnetic attachments.
One minor gripe with the keyboard is that even with the adjustable feet fully extended out, the keyboard still sits rather low.
Gamer, writer, self-proclaimed chemistry hobo. Always looking to make use of a good pun in the name of fun.
