Corsair Vengeance K70 Gaming Keyboard review

A very solid mechanical gaming keyboard



Mechanical keyboards are becoming increasingly popular and more widely available. Years ago you even had to import these types of keyboards, but now that manufacturers like Corsair have their own selection of mechanical keyboards, they're much easier to find. Corsair recently introduced a successor to the K60 mechanical keyboard, called the K70. It has a wrist support that spans the entire width, and features Cherry MX Red keys. In the future the keyboard will also be available with Cherry MX Brown and MX Blue keys. 

The K70 comes in silver or black, and with the red backlighting on the black version gives the keyboard a very deluxe appearance. The silver version has black keys and blue backlighting. The foundation of the keyboard is a brushed aluminium top plate with beneath it a plastic basin. The keys protrude above the keyboard, and there aren't any special gaming keys. If you need that, a better option is the larger K95, which is the replacement for the Corsair K90.

The main difference with the K60 are the backlit keys and the wrist support that now spans the entire width of the keyboard. The K60 only had a wrist support for the left side of the keyboard. The function keys are also mechanical on the K70, and no longer dome switches like on the K60.
