Corsair’s K60 RGB Pro mechanical keyboard is an interesting proposition for those looking to experience the joys of using a mechanical keyboard, without incurring a massive cost. For several years now – ever since the CHERRY switch patent expired – lesser-known OEM manufacturers and short-lived start-ups have sold budget mechanical keyboards, offering variable build quality and a range of clone switches. With the budget K60 RGB Pro, Corsair now have a product that can compete in the same price range, while offering premium original CHERRY switches and comprehensive RGB lighting configurations thanks to iCUE integration with their other products.
Straight out the box, the K60 RGB Pro is an unassuming keyboard. It’s a full-sized keyboard with a Numpad and traditional layout (104-key), but you’ll find no dedicated, rebindable macro or media keys. The K60 RGB Pro has a brushed aluminium frame with a black anodized finish, while the keycaps are matt-black, double-shot plastic. The K60 RGB Pro uses CHERRY’s new budget mechanical switches, the CHERRY “VIOLA”, that offer two-stage actuation and are optimised for RGB LEDs.
