Corsair Strafe Mechanical Keyboard mini-Review

It's time to dive back in on one of the biggest up-and-comers in the straight-to-consumers gaming peripherals game: Corsair. With the Corsair STRAFE, users work with the same high-quality mastery in mechanical keyboard clicking as the rest of the recent Corsair Gaming RGB light-up series, but here the options - and therefor the price - take a cut.

The company has just announced its SmartBar technology at Computex, which basically turns the top of the spacebar into a capacitive touch pad.
