About this deal

The feeling of the keys firing is like some sort of marriage between a membrane and a mechanical keyboard. If you find it helpful please let me know by giving it a like and hitting the subscribe and notification button for more keyboard and tech reviews. Its robust build quality and mechanical key switches make it a reliable option for avid gamers and frequent typists. Cherry's introduction of low-profile switches seems to have given every keyboard manufacturer ideas.

There’s a lot of making selections only to have them not apply because you failed to drag-drop them to some other confusing profile menu.It's mainly made out of plastic, and the top plate is aluminum, giving the keyboard a better build than the Corsair K68 RGB, but the keyboard flexes a bit.

Of course, they also have a surface-mounted RGB LED as well as a clear plastic housing to help disperse the light. What’s up guys, in today’s Tech Gear Talk we’re going to look at the new Corsair K70 RGB MK 2 mechanical keyboard. The included—and detachable—wrist rest varies slightly from the original K70 with a rubberized grip that feels softer than the hard plastic of the previous model.Even the top Corsair logo and fixed-function keys can have their RGB lighting customised, though the indicator lights are fixed in white. The legends on virtually all keys are extremely easy to read, except for the Caps Lock key, which has some visible obstructions and isn't quite as legible as the other keycap legends. Thankfully, the swap to the new exclusive switches is a success and simply adds another choice for gamers looking to get their hands on one of the best keyboards available. A lifetime gamer, she has written video game and hardware reviews since her freshman year of college. It helps a little, but I honestly think I would need to remove all the keys and clean this thing regularly.

They also look very similar, except that the K70's entire top plate is aluminum while the STRAFE has an aluminum strip only at the top. means Definitely a very good product with drawbacks that are not likely going to matter to the end user.

I like how much of the led light passes through this wide font and you really get to see the colors not just around the keys but through them. The replacements have a raised, textured finish and look great next to the rest of the ordinary, matte black keys on the K70 MK. We tested both keyboards with Cherry MX Brown, but typing feels better on the Ducky because it has higher-quality PBT keycaps.

Above the numpad, Corsair has slightly tweaked the look of the media controls but otherwise left things unchanged.Featuring a light grey colour, sharp contours, and a rougher texture, they’re designed to stand out, but I’ve never found them that useful in games and they’re hugely distracting when typing. You'll notice a selection of Cherry MX switches and of course full iCUE compatibility for all your profiles, macros, and RGB needs. The Lighting Effects tab is where you can play around with the lighting effects of each of the Corsair K70 RGB MK.
