Game in comfort and game in style
Play at the top of your abilities during longer gaming sessions with the Corsair K55 RGB Gaming Keyboard. Designed with the gamer in mind, the Corsair K55 is packed with great features like three-zone dynamic RGB backlighting, which offers you more than 10 lighting modes – from static backlighting to a range of dynamic lighting effects. An ergonomic detachable soft rubber wrist aids any fatigue issues you may experience during gaming.

Great gaming features
You can assign anything from single keystrokes to complicated multi-key combinations to any of the six dedicated programmable macros keys on the left of the keyboard. Using these doesn’t require any additional software installing. The keys offer a quiet and responsive feel during use, ensuring you can game into the night without disturbing anyone in your vicinity, and without sacrificing any performance.

Little differences
The Corsair K55 includes plenty of little differences that help it stand out, such as the Window Key Lock mode. This helps eliminate the Windows Key that can sometimes be inevitably pressed during gameplay. Well-designed collapsible feet at the bottom of the keyboard mean you can position the keyboard however you want, enhancing your gameplay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Keyboard! Bought this 2 weeks ago as my first gaming keyboard. It hasn't ran into any errors yet. The lighting is vibrate and has a good selection of colours. Has quite a bit of customisation which I really like. However, the keys are quite loud. However, very decent for the price I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RELIABLE KEYBOARD I have had corsair keyboards in the past but this was by far the best out of all of them coming in with a cheap overall price and being able to adjust the RGB lighting is amazing. If you are just getting into pc gaming then this is the right keybord for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Corsair K55 gaming Keyboard I recently built a gaming computer for the first time and opted to go for this keyboard. Having never used a keyboard in earnest before I'm very pleased with the feel of this one. It is perfect for longer hours of use and has a great feedback.

Is the ENTER key, small as it is in the picture, or is it the big enter key?

Asked by: Jumpyy
I bought this keyboard from in store in the UK. The enter key is actually exactly like a standard keyboard. It isn't as small as the image intends.

Is this the UK version or the one pictured? The one pictured seems to have the EU key layout, I'm guessing you just used a generic picture but not a UK one? I ask because I am looking for an EU version exactly like the pic. With the larger SHIFT key.

Asked by: CuriousJay
This keyboard will be supplied with a UK layout.
