Corsair brings a compact keyboard to the K65 RGB Mini


In the mechanical keyboard enthusiast scene, it’s quite common to see 60% of keyboards. However, mainstream keyboard manufacturers have long stuck to full-size designs, or at most scaled them down to TKL, which takes away the number pad. However, a trend is emerging these days with Corsair being the latest to jump on board.

The company recently removed the packaging for the Corsair K65 RGB mini keyboard. This is a 60% keyboard that we’ve seen from Razer and ASUS (the ASUS ROG Falchion is closer to 65% but still pretty compact).

In 60% of the unknown keyboards, the function line, the dedicated arrow and the navigation keys as well as the numeric keypad have been removed. These functions can be accessed using an Fn key. The end result is a more compact keyboard for those who may not need to use these keys that often.

The Corsair K65 RGB Mini has Cherry MX speed linear switches. However, users can also choose other switch options such as the Cherry MX Silent Switches and Cherry MX Reds. The keyboard has RGB and PBT shine-through keycaps per key. For 60% of keyboards, this is a fairly standard keyboard. If you want to review this form factor, it costs $ 110.
