CORSAIR was recently happy to announce the immediate worldwide availability of the new LUX range of mechanical keyboards, which build upon the phenomenal success of the CORSAIR K70, K70 RGB, and K65. This new range adds in several new features and improvements, including enhanced lighting, USB pass-through, and a back-lit optimized key cap font while keeping the core-design, premium materials, and commitment to quality that has earned the K-series over 300 global media awards.
Alongside the aluminum construction and 100% German-made Chery MX keyswitches, the LUX range features an enhanced internal lighting controller, allowing for even finer color adjustment and more vibrant patterns and effects. This is maximized by the new larger, modern key cap font, which have the durability to last through years of presses while still looking their best.
The LUX range also adds the long requested USB pass-through feature to the CORSAIR family of RGB keyboards. This feature, standard on all LUX keyboards, allows users to connect a mouse, headset, or other device directly to the keyboard for convenient access and uninterrupted gameplay.
