Corsair Gaming Lapdog Review – Conclusion

Lapdog_Empty_02

Huge, huge, huge, huge, HHHHUUUUGGGGGEEEEEEEE. This thing is huge. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. When we reviewed the Razer Turret one of the things which was apparent were that there had to be some compromises to create that product and some of those impacted the user experience. With the Lapdog, Corsair through the massive size, have gone with the no compromises approach and that is often a wise move.

So, here we get no compromises on the keyboard.  We can use some of Corsairs best mechanical models that have won awards here and across the net. Cherry MX switches, RGB lighting, whatever you need, you get. The gaming surface is more than big enough due to the product footprint and Corsair would appear to have spared no expense on the foam padding. It is covered in a decent fabric and is plenty thick.

There are a couple of quirks on the marketing site that we noted, for example no mention of size in the spec list… like Corsair are trying to hide the size? And they talk of a 4-port USB hub. Sure, it has four ports but two are internal and used by our keyboard/mouse. So really it should be noted that two are external.

In terms of pricing we have a tough time placing the value, over £100/$100 does seem a bit steep. We do note that the construction is solid and that there is a decent amount of brushed aluminium on show here. Keep in mind that this price is without a keyboard and mouse… so all in, a £200/$200+ purchase at least.

Where we have no complaints is in the installation process. That was super simple. Take out 7 screws, slot in our keyboard, wire it and the mouse in, screw the panels back in, connect USB/power and done! A 10 minute process at most.  Once up and running the keyboard experience obviously depends on the model installed and the keys it uses but it is of course top notch as K70/65 reviews note. The surface tracks well on the mice we tested and had minimal friction as expected. Our only note is that there should be a decent lip on the edge of the surface to keep our mouse on it should we tilt the Lapdog.

Summary: Massive. Sturdy. Heavy. Comfy. Cool. Expensive. Epic.
