With the all-in-one features of the Corsair K83 wireless keyboard, you don’t need a mouse to clutter your desktop PC.

The design is quite sleek and elegant. The brushed aluminum keyboard takes on a more modern look. The LED backlighting is adjustable so you can customize it to complement your build.

The keyboard itself already comes with its own modern joystick, along with some click buttons. You can play your games anywhere without having to bring a mouse and a mousepad. The touchpad is already equipped with tunable and configurable settings to fit your own preference. For good measure, it comes with gesture support for Windows 10 users.

The keyboard is split into two functions. On the left side, you will see the traditional keyboard keys. But it’s on the right side where the magic really happens. That side is dominated by a circular touchpad that takes up most of the space. There are two click buttons below the touchpad, with one key more prominent than the other.

The joystick lies on the right top side of the keyboard with a volume roller that you can easily click to mute. While they all look cutting-edge, most reviews, however, were anemic at best. For instance, the touchpad takes a lot of getting used to. If you are using the thumb, you won’t have a problem navigating it. It’s when you use the other fingers is when you encounter some problems.

You need to move your wrist in unnatural ways to make the touchpad perform the action that you want.

Tom’s Hardware claimed that they don’t quite reach their potential. Certainly, they don’t justify the price tag of the keyboard. The website also noticed a lag when connecting via Bluetooth while playing games. However, there are three connections to choose from, and you can quickly switch from one to the other.

And what a huge drawback it is. The Corsair K83 sells for $99.99, which is quite steep when you consider other products in the market today.

Here’s a quick review of the Corsair K83 wireless keyboard before you decide to purchase the product.

If you think that’s too pricey, there’s another alternative from another tech brand. The Logitech K600 is also an all-in-one keyboard that’s completely wire-free on a range of 15 meters.

Within that range, you can expect an uninterrupted functionality of your PC or even your TV. Now the price for the Logitech K600 has been slashed from the original $69.99 to $49.88.
