Corsair's Backlit Raptor K40 Keyboard Has 16.8 Million Colors

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 2 comments

Just one of the company's colorful keyboards on show at CES.

In addition to its new Raptor M45 gaming mouse, Corsair also announced a brand new Raptor gaming keyboard at CES Las Vegas. The Raptor K40 boasts onboard macro storage, six programmable gaming keys, 18 programmable functions, dedicated multimedia keys, 100 percent anti-ghosting, with full-key rollover on USB, and 16.8 million color customizable backlighting.

     

This isn't the first of Corsair's 16.8 million color backlit keyboards we've seen this week. The company already announced a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX RGB mechanical switches. However, that won't be available until later this year.

In the meantime, the K40 is available this month and will come with an attached price tag that reads $79.99.

    Don't trust their keyboards' LEDs, too many failures.Don't believe me, believe this:http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=121181&page=3Read the entire thread for some good feedback.I also bought their K70 and got "burned" with it, will never get another Corsair KB again (and still in doubt whether to get any of their hardware anymore, too).
