Roccat or Corsair - wrist rest opinion

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Dear all

I am new to this forum and I'm posting because I've tried my best to use the search function to answer my question but have yet to find an answer.

I am thinking about getting a new mechanical keyboard. It will either be a Roccat Ryos or a Corsair Strafe RGB.

I'd like to know people's views as to the respective wrist rests of each keyboard, in particular, whether it is comfortable from long periods of gaming.

Thanks for any help and advice.

If you ever want to get a roccat, do not get one with LED backlight.
I have gone through a painful RMA process and gave up on RMAing the keyboard after the LED of my two mk pros failed miserably.
Just get the basic one without the fancy LEDs, the keyboard is great to use, but the LEDs not so.

Thanks for your response. Aside from the LEDs, do you think the wrist rest is any good though? I'm thinking 3-4 hour gaming sessions by way of example.

I think the wrist rest is ok for me.
Just steer away from the LED version then it should be ok.

Roccat and Corsair both manufacture their keyboards in the same factory, heard of more led issues with Corsair, so it doesn't matter, heard more appraisals of the roccat wristrest.
