Corsair K63 Compact Mechanical Keyboard (TKL) Now Shipping

Posted on March 21, 2017

Corsair has freshly launched their new K63 Compact Mechanical Keyboard and is available on Corsair’s website as well as Amazon. The K63 keyboard is a tenkey-less design and features Cherry MX Red switches (linear), per-key red LED backlighting, full key rollover, and dedicated media keys. The K63 appears to be based off the Corsair Vengeance K65; however, the K63 is built on a plastic body instead of the aluminium chassis on the K65. Both feature dedicated media keys, although the K63 does add a bit of functionality not found on the K65 with Stop/Start, Fast Forward, and Rewind keys on the top-left side.

The K63 keyboard is an interesting product for Corsair to put out, given its $80 retail price, whereas the aluminium bodied Vengeance K65 retails for $70. As previously stated, the K63 does add more media keys over the Vengeance K65, but that’s about it. The more expensive Corsair K65 RGB is an option at $120, if RGB LEDs, an aluminum frame, and USB passthrough are absolute musts.

Let us know what you think of the new K63!
