CORSAIR and Cherry have enjoyed a long collaboration, and it continues with the new Cherry VIOLA switches used in new CORSAIR K60 PRO keyboards. We take a look at the K60 RGB PRO today, which is also a name update to CORSAIR's first-ever keyboard from nearly a decade ago!

That grease in the contacts, looks like it is there to prevent oxidation in the long term - if it was conductive, you would have shorts there, since the grease literally covers both contacts at the same time.

Hey VSG, great review, as always. I have a general question that I've been curious about... how do you go about taking the pictures for these reviews? Love the infinite white background. Are you using a white box, macro lens setup? Would love to hear more about how you do what you do.

Ah of course, thanks for reminding me I was dumb there. I have updated that sentence accordingly!

Back when things were much cleaner and emptier in that room, aka just under an year ago:

Hope that helps clarify things, but essentially it is four stands in total with two for lights and two to hold the white paper backdrop suspended over a metal rod. The camera setup itself involves a mix of the Canon EF 24-105 mm f/4L IS (gen 1) and Canon EF 100 mm f/2.8L IS Macro lenses on an ancient Canon 7D SLR body. Processing is 99% on Adobe Lightroom Classic.
