In addition to new headsets, Corsair launched a new Raptor K30 gaming keyboard and two new mouse pads: the MM200 and MM400. The new peripherals will be available in September.
The Raptor K30 is a RED LED backlit gaming keyboard with rubber dome keys and anti-ghosting circuitry. The keyboard has six programmable macro keys, multimedia playback controls, and a full QWERTY with separate number pad layout. The K30 further has a Windows lock key to prevent accidental key presses which would take you out of a full screen game.

It reportedly has a microtexture surface optimized to allow mice to easily glide across the mat. It has a non-slip rubber base to keep the mat in place.
The MM200 mouse mat has an MSRP of $34.99 and will be available in September.
The Corsair MM400 is a 310mm x 235mm (~12" x 9") mouse mat with a low friction polymer surface and rubber base. Corsair stated in a press release that the reflective surface has been tweaked to work well with gaming mice.
User will be able to purchase the MM400 in September for around $19.99 (MSRP).
