IOGEAR Korona Kore II Compact Keyboard 2022 REVIEW — MacSources
Compact keyboard doesn’t quite measure up to user’s standards.
I have a pretty extensive collection of keyboards laying around my office. A few years back, I was really taken with a mechanical keyboard that was designed for gaming and it quickly became my primary work peripheral. The only issue I really had with that keyboard was that it was very large. I love that it had a numeric keypad and navigation keys along with the typing keyboard layout, but I wanted that package in a smaller format. That’s why the Korona Kore II from IOGEAR caught my eye.
The Korona Kore II is a compact keyboard designed for gaming. It features an 89-key layout (including 26 anti-ghosting keys) that is perfect for smaller desk setups. It has RGB multi-zone backlighting with multiple lighting modes. A unique 10-key layout is built into the compact design and a rotary control knob is included for easy audio and lighting adjustments.
A gaming mouse is part of this keyboard’s package. It features an updated 6,200 dpi gaming-grade sensor for high-performance when playing. The mouse also has RGB lighting built-in. The mouse buttons are programmable when using the Kaliber Gaming software (Windows only).
