Corsair Gaming K55 RGB review: The K55 will sate most of your gaming needs for an affordable price


A good price, solid build quality and decent features make the K55 a winner

Good build quality ; Better value than its rivals ; Keys are heavy and consistent

Eight-key rollover ; Poor RGB LED versatility ; Font on supplementary keys is too small

Otherwise, the lower price, good action and solid features make the K55 our favourite membrane keyboard available right now. If mechanical units are too expensive for you, the K55 will sate most of your needs for half the price.

Best non-mechanical for the money


Bought this after my old keyboard broke. I wanted a decent gaming keyboard that wouldn't break the bank. This, in my opinion, is the best non-mechanical keyboard in it's price range. Normally the RGB lighting would up it's value by a silly amount but...
