Corsair K100 Air Wireless vs Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro

Both the Corsair K100 Air Wireless and the Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro are at the top of the pile when in comes to low-profile wireless gaming keyboards.In this guide, we aim to help you choose between the two. Available at a steep price of $279 (£279, AU$479), the Corsair K100 Wireless is an ultra-thin keyboard featuring tactile switches. Razer’s DeathStalker V2 Pro is as ultra-thin as the Corsair K100, sports linear switches, and costs $219 (£249, AU$359). 

The potential of a wireless gaming keyboard to simplify your gaming setup and, hence, take productivity up a notch, cannot be underestimated. Some may argue, though, that the kind of stutter-free connection a wired gaming keyboard is capable of providing is not found on wireless keyboards. While both types of keyboards certainly do have their fair share of pros and cons, performance can also be determined by the brand you’re going for. Big names in the industry, such as Corsair and Razer, are bound to impress you with their lag-free performance.

Corsair K100 Air Wireless VS Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro: design

  • K100 Air features an ultrathin body and tactile switches
  • DeathStalker V2 Pro also features a low-profile body, sports bright RGB lighting, and linear switches

Corsair’s keyboard measures 17mm at its thickest and 11mm at its thinnest. You don’t realize how incredibly thin that is. The Corsair K100 Air features multiple design elements that we immediately became fans of. To start off, its brushed-aluminum frame is too good to not be separately appreciated. It gives the keyboard its lightweight profile along with making sure that it looks good. Being considerably expensive, the Corsair K100 Air doesn’t skimp on any of its features. It boasts Cherry’s ultra-low-profile tactile switches, which are one of the best in the game.

The K100 Air’s low-profile keycaps are rather decently sized and suit those with relatively large hands. The keycaps are subtly rounded inward to reduce instances of finger slippage and to make sure that your fingers comfortably sit on them.

Corsair’s keyboard also sports a light indicator section in its middle that makes it so much more user-friendly than it already is. It provides users with valuable information such as its battery and connectivity status. It has some cool RGB going on as well. The lighting is programmable via a companion app and makes the keyboard vibrant and customizable.

Razer’s DeathStalker V2 measures 26.5mm at its thickest and weighs 776.5g (27.4z). We see a 5052 aluminum alloy top panel and a plastic bottom panel on this one. The plastic used is of premium quality, and, therefore, looks and feels good. The linear switches on the DeathStalker V2 are covered with ultra-durable ABS keycaps. Razer’s keyboard comes with a detachable braided fiber Type-C cable.
