With the new K100 AIR Wireless, Corsair launches an ultra-thin (17mm) wireless mechanical keyboard that is stunning in many ways. On the one hand, there is the technical masterpiece that was set up there, and on the other hand, the price of a hefty 300(!) Euros. Read our review to find out whether the flat showpiece is technically convincing.
No, there was no typo in the introduction. The CORSAIR K100 AIR actually costs a whopping 299.99€. When I saw the price tag, I also briefly got gasps and already saw in my mind’s eye the comments that this article will undoubtedly cause. However, it would be unfair to reduce the product solely to its price, which is why I approached the test as unbiased and neutral as I always do. Let’s first check what the keyboard has to offer technically and then judge.
Unboxing and Hands-On
Corsair relies on the established design for the packaging. A black cardboard box with yellow applications and an image of the product provide an elegant appearance.On the back, we find all sorts of technical information.The keys are protected with a transparent plastic cover.
The keyboard looks much more elegant without the plastic waste.
The brushed aluminum and the flat keys undoubtedly give the keyboard a very classy appearance
The K100 AIR is as flat as a flounder, making a wrist-rest obsolete.
The typical Corsair scroller for controlling the volume is also included, here surrounded by the four G-keys and additional media keys.
At the other end we find three more buttons, the profile, light and win-lock buttons to be exact.
The Slipstream receiver, the on/off switch and the USB-C charging port are located on the back.
Besides the rubberized front, however, there are also two-stage fold-out feet on board.
