Corsair detailed the new Harpoon RGB gaming mouse today, along with the Corsair K55 RGB gaming keyboard. Both options will offer a slightly lower price-point than some of Corsair’s other, more customizable options, while still offering Corsair’s popular design and performance.
Fitted with a 6,000dpi optical sensor, the Harpoon RGB offers up a contoured design and CUE support – while the K55 RGB features quieter keys and six programmable macro keys along the left-side of the device. The K55 Keyboard also offers the popular dedicated volume and media controls, which have been on Corsair keyboards in the past. The company also stated that both the Harpoon RGB and the K55 RGB will also offer customizable Corsair RGB lighting.
The LED lighting on both models will be fully programmable, the Harpoon offering a single RGB lighting zone, while the K55 RGB has a three-zone RGB backlight feature. The K55 will offer more than ten preconfigured lighting profiles, which are controlled using commands right from the keyboard. While you may have fewer customization options than something like the Corsair K70, you won’t need software to customize the K55.
Both the Harpoon RGB and the K55 RGB will allow gamers to take advantage of programmable macro keys and customizable controls. The Harpoon RGB’s six buttons are fully remappable to any key or command, or programmable with a wide range of easy-to-use macros using CUE software. From adjusting dpi levels on-the-fly to switching load-outs in game, HARPOON RGB makes it easy to adjust to any game that you are currently playing. The Harpoon RGB stores all of your custom dpi settings in on-board memory, while the K55 RGB can similarly store programmable custom macros. That will make it easy to take your customized-profile with you, regardless of what system you are playing on.
Availability and Pricing
The Harpoon RGB is available immediately from the Corsair website, as well as authorized retailers like Corsair’s storefront on Amazon.com. The K55 RGB will be available from November 22nd. Both options will include a two-year warranty and the Corsair worldwide customer support network.
