Introducing the Corsair K70 Cherry MX Red Performance Keyboard

The Corsair Vengeance K70 is a high quality, premium gaming keyboard with understated good looks.

The price is competitive for a mechanical keyboard using Cherry MX switches. The Cherry MX switches comes in Red, Brown or Blue variations. Put simply Red switches need only light pressure to register a keypress while Blue requires a definite press, with Brown some where in the middle.

Having the ability to assign a macro to any key and also adjust the lighting effects on the RGB version making this a highly customisable keyboard.

Going from a regular keyboard to a mechanical one takes a good bit of getting used to, but once you’re used to it you can never go back to gaming on a regular keyboard. The keyboard is very comfortable to use and comes with key specific customizable back-lighting, if you’re that way inclined.’

A highly regarded mechanical keyboard that impressed with its responsive switches there were some reports of unreliability with the LED lighting but hopefully this how now been addressed.

‘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.

Impressed by the keyboard when used for typing but was disappointed with the lack of any extra ‘G’ gaming keys. Indicated the Corsair K95 offers this for a little more money.
