Depending on your preference, playing your games or multimedia on a gaming monitor is the way to go. However, for some us who would rather lounge on the couch will require something else entirely. Hooking up your gaming PC to your TV can enhance the experience. However, but you’re going to need a wireless input device to control the action. The Corsair K83 looks like our best bet.
Gamers will likely complain about the lack of mechanical switches, but its primarily a keyboard with multimedia in mind. Sure, it’s a serviceable alternative to play games with, but if you’re looking for exceptional response time, you’re not getting it here. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, everything else about it just works as in.
You can choose between Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz wireless via the USB receiver. The latter is a handy feature in case a lot of wireless devices are causing interference. Meanwhile, the aesthetics certainly look stylish with a sturdy aluminum body and island-style keys with ultra-low profile scissor switches.
You’re also going to need a pointing device to control the cursor. That’s why the Corsair K83 comes with a Precision touchpad. The fun doesn’t just end there because you’re also getting an analog joystick as well as a volume roller. You can even press each one for additional functions. The built-in rechargeable battery delivers up to 40 hours of continuous use with hassle-free charging through USB. Finally, all of the keys, buttons, and even the touchpad have LED backlighting with a white glow.Buy now for $99.99
