Corsair K100 Air Wireless | Review

With all these innovations in the PC component field it is very likely that some of you are deciding to redo the whole computer, perhaps investing money also in peripherals and certainly not in something random, but products of qualities that can somehow meet our expectations.

If you are a gamer, a mechanical gaming keyboard is probably the first thing you might consider changing. In this regard, just recently I had the opportunity to try the new Corsair K100 Air Wireless, a very interesting low profile mechanical keyboard, but with a high cost, although certainly perfectly consistent given its qualities.

Com 'it's done

The Corsair K100 Air Wireless is a low profile mechanical keyboard with a thickness of just 11mm and a weight of 780 grams; entirely covered with an aluminum cover. The peripheral is adjustable in two different heights and is extremely elegant and minimal, perfect for being on any desk.| ); }

My experience

I used the Corsair K100 Air Wireless for about a week, having the opportunity to try it both with video games and with daily work, the latter mainly focused on drafting of articles (which I want to underline to give you more context on what you will read in the next lines).

The merit goes above all to the choice of using the CHERRY MX low profile mechanical switches with tactile feeling and with an actuation force of 52 cN and a tactile force of 65 cN. Each single key has a hinted concavity that makes use satisfactory (also thanks to the very short actuation stroke of 0.8mm) also with regard to writing and not just for video games. Each key is composed of an RGB LED with 16.8 million colors, entirely manageable through the iCUE software.

The keyboard has four macro keys on the left side, just above the numeric keypad, one a choice that could be uncomfortable in some video games (just think of Starcraft or strategic in general), but which becomes very useful in other contexts. From this point of view it always depends on the user and on how the peripheral is used.

Regarding longevity, Corsair has declared an autonomy of about 50 hours with active RGB LEDs and a 0% recharge. to 100% in 2-3 hours. In fact, the duration I found was around 49 hours, so I can confirm that we are in line with what Corsair suggests. It is also important to consider that this peripheral is compatible both with PCs, but also with consoles (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S).

In addition to the classic connection via USB-C and Wireless Slipstream (Corsair's WiFi technology), the K100 also has Bluetooth connection support, so it is also compatible with smartphones and tablets.


The Corsair K100 Air Wireless is a keyboard from excellent gaming, built with excellent materials and with a really good general feeling, so much so that it is perfect for both playing and writing. As far as I have tried, the only real flaw of this device lies in the price: 299.99 euros are an imported investment and to date there are no keyboards (apart from custom ones) with prices of this kind. Let's be clear, Corsair's work is commendable, but if it had cost 50 euros less it would have been a real must buy.
