Corsair’s K63 Mechanical Keyboard Is Compact And Affordable

Posted by Nazmi Norhisam on

Kicking the number pad to the curb.

Corsair has added yet another mechanical keyboard to its robust lineup, this one a "tenkeyless" plank (meaning it doesn't have a number pad) that trades data entry convenience for a compact design. Called the K63, it's also comparatively affordable at $80, versus sometimes well north of $100 for some other name brand options out there.

The K63 keeps it mostly simple. It doesn't have any dedicated macro keys, with Corsair choosing instead to plop a few media keys at both top corners of the keyboard. In lieu of dedicated macro keys, users can bind macros to any of the keys using Corsair's CUE utility, such as the F1 through F12 keys.

There is a Windows lock key, along with 100 percent anti-ghosting with full key rollover for rapid fire button presses. It also has per-key red LED illumination, and this too can be customized through software.

Underneath the keycaps are Cherry MX Red key switches with gold contacts. Cherry MX Red switches are lightweight and linear without any tactile feedback or loud clicks (check out our guide on mechanical key switches to see how it compares to other options).

The K63 is available now direct from Corsair.

Titanfall 2 free DLC details will be forthcoming, Respawn pledges

In my fairly-insignificant-in-the-wide-scheme-of-things opinion, Titanfall 2 was the best multiplayer shooter of 2016. While the player base can hardly rival the likes of Overwatch, studio Respawn claims in a new community update that it's growing. Oh, and more free DLC is coming.

"Right now we’re focused on the long term future of Titanfall and we’re excited about it," the post reads. "The core Titanfall team is working away on lots of cool stuff, whether that be DLC for Titanfall 2, action blocks and prototypes for future Titanfall projects, or other crazy science experiments. We’re just getting started, and we can’t wait to take you, our Community, along for this ride."

Seems like... exactly what you'd expect a studio to say about their game and community. Except the blogpost also pledges that the studio will improve its communication regarding future DLC updates. "...We could have done a better job at communicating the breadth of stuff we planned to release. This is something that we will get better at and the studio remains committed to supporting Titanfall 2 with free content as well as new Prime Titans, store items, and more."

A full update regarding the March DLC update will be published on March 23. As far as that communication improvement is concerned, the studio plans to start a Q&A video series, developer blogs "and more".
