Corsair Gaming K70 RGB

 

Is this the best keyboard you can buy? It's not far off

RGB backlighting is useful and fun ; Typing experience is excellent ; Premium build materials

Programming the lighting is laborious ; Features removed compared to previous K70

Rounding things out are the feet on the underside, which are notable because there are both front and rear feet, allowing for greater freedom for getting just the right angle, though they both only have one height setting.

Corsair Vengeance K70

 

One of the best mechanical-switch gaming keyboards on the market

Premium look and feel thanks to aluminium top ; Contoured keycaps actually work while gaming ; Mechanical switches offer great typing experience ; Can choose switch type and colour ; Keys have nice, grippy soft-touch finish

No dedicated gaming 'G' keys ; Contoured keys don't have secondary function labels ; Keys aren't noise dampened

The Corsair K70 is simply one of the best premium mechanical-switch keyboards on the market. Whether you’re after a keyboard mainly for typing or gaming purposes it performs superbly, just so long as you don’t want extra programmable G keys.

Corsair K70 gaming keyboard review

 

We'll just come out and say it: keyboards have been getting worse over the years, not better. Compared to processors, graphics cards and memory, the all-important keyboard has suffered at the relentless march of price drops and a lack of willingness to...

Looks amazing, backlight is ace, gaming keys are nice for FPS use, feels solid, nice to type on

Can be a bit loud, expensive

There's really nothing here not to like. It's a well-built keyboard that will last a lifetime of gaming, and typing. It looks amazing, feels great and oozes cool. Unlike some keyboards we've tested recently, it also works well for typing, and we got...

Corsair K70 RGB review

 

A gaming keyboard with color control at your fingertips

Great build quality ; Matte black finish ; Cherry MX Red switches ; Sturdy palm rest

Difficult software suite

Frankly, this is the color-customizable mechanical gaming keyboard to get. But unless you're ready to dig deep, prepare to wrestle with Corsair's software.

Corsair Gaming K70 RGB keyboard

 

The Corsair Gaming range gets off to a flying start with the world's first RGB-backlit mechanical keyboard

It's taken a lot of effort, but RGB lighting and mechanical keyboard switches are together at last. Thanks to Corsair's deal with Cherry, the Corsair Gaming keyboards are the only ones of their kind for the time being, so if you're looking for a...

Corsair K70 LUX RGB Keyboard Review

 

Corsair makes a wide variety of computer peripherals, but its range of mechanical keyboards, aimed chiefly at gamers, has gathered a fair amount of attention. The K70 LUX RGB is the successor to the popular K70 and a slightly different version of the...

The K70 LUX RGB is an iterative "up"-grade to earlier K70 RGB models, but it has below-par RGB backlighting.

Corsair K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard Review

 

Today I take a look at Corsair's latest keyboard, the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE featuring a brand new switch type exclusive to Corsair.

Premium design ; Feature rich ; Endless customisability options ; Comfortable ; Great performance

So we’ve seen 3 new switch types in as many years all courtesy of this exclusive partnership with Cherry, but the question is, is it worth it? In short, yes; innovative keyboard products are few and far between, so the fact a major PC hardware company...

Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire Review

 

Corsair's Strafe series was just a filler - the K70 returns in spectacular fashion

We honestly expected a higher price for the K70 RGB Rapidfire given that it sports a number of improvements and extra features compared to the standard RGB version. That's not to say this isn't still a hugely expensive keyboard, but considering the...
