The Vengeance K70 Gaming Keyboard: designed for performance gaming
Cherry MX Red mechanical key switches provide fast, linear response and low-noise operation. Since the K70 is fully mechanical, you’ll get that response with any key you press. There’s a full key matrix anti-ghosting mechanism for perfect signal quality, and the full key rollover on USB ensures accuracy no matter how fast you play. The aluminum frame is lightweight and durable for hours and hours of intense play.
Customizable to your style of play
The all-important WASD and 1-6 keys are contoured and textured, so you can find them fast, and enjoy fast gaming action with less chance of your fingers missing their mark. You can program backlighting for each key independently, so you can set up a custom-lit key binding and save it to onboard memory.
Looks great on your desktop
Not only is the K70 a remarkable gaming keyboard – it looks amazing, too. The brushed aluminum frame is black anodized for an impressive look, and the brilliant red backlighting gives it the unmistakable look of serious gaming machinery.

League of Legends require my fingers to be on the keys QWER and thumb to be on space bar. Space bar is used quite often since it is used to reposition the game camera. However, with my fingers on QWER, I can only comfortably hit the spacebar on the left edge.
However after a couple months of usage, I found that the right side of the space bar will pop up very often when pressing the left side of the space bar, rendering it impossible to press the space bar from the left edge until I push the right side back down again. My character in the game will be out of view and I will be trying to reposition the camera with no success until I realize that I need to pop back down the spacebar again, making it very frustrating to play the game.
The main reasons I got this keyboard are: genuine cherry MX brown switches, it's back-lit (complaints about the symbols on the number row being brighter than the numbers are true, but silly), keys are standard size and placement (none of this nonsense about the backslash key being in the wrong spot), and my personal favorite, the volume slider (love this). I also do use the included hand rest every day, it's perfectly fine by me. I do not use the contoured gaming keys since I primary use it for development, the standard keys are just fine for gaming. I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a mechanical keyboard.
When I drafted this review, I listed all the great things about this keyboard. I ended up listing all the product features!!!
So to avoid repetition, just give the product description a browse.
Optional textured number key caps included do not have corresponding symbols ie ! @ # $ % ^ etc.
Multimedia functions location could definitely be moved higher, as the top row of the numpad seems to catch your hand when using.
Braided cord was strong and sturdy, but it was difficult to straighten out initially.
After  months of use, it finally started acting up. Entire row [ASDF] stopped responding and LED started activating randomly, with random keystrokes. Luckily with a  month warranty, Corsair was able to answer the call for a replacement. [Granted it was out of stock, and the wait was estimated to be almost a month!]
When I packed up my keyboard for the RMA, I noticed something amazing... The keyboard physically looked and felt as if it was still new, which is a testament to the build quality of this unit. No keys faded, nothing broke off due to heavy use or even scratched from use, which is no small task for 8 hours of daily use for almost 2 years.
What I love:
* Cherry Brown is my new favorite thing. Just the right feedback while not being deafening.
* Satisfying 'clunk' if you bottom out the key
* VERY sturdy construction. This thing feels like you could drive over it and do more damage to your car than the keyboard.
* The red lighting is less annoying than this big push for eye-searing blue; if it needs to be backlit, this is probably my preferred color
* USB passthrough for a mouse receiver or flash drive
Complaints are few, but:
* the software (which isn't required for the keyboard to function perfectly well) doesn't detect that my keyboard is plugged in. Googling shows that I'm not alone but that nobody has found the definitive fix. So I lose out on being able to selective light specific keys.
* USB is a passthrough and not a hub, so you have to use up two USB ports. A common but annoying design decision
* If I'm reaching, the keyboard is maybe a *hair* taller than it needs to be. Doesn't quite fit my setup without adjusting
I was apprehensive about the cost (finally replacing an almost 10 year old Saitek Eclipse that was *maybe* $70 and has been a trooper), but I don''t think I'll be replacing this keyboard for many years.

The metal base makes it feel solid and keeps it in place. I love the backlight as I tend to sit and type in the dark.
I've taken off the palm rest as it was a dust and dirt magnet.
Speaking of dirt, the included tool for removing the keys helps while cleaning as well - if you don't mind taking the keys off one by one every now and then.
It does not come with a million different colour options for the lights or marcos for the keys but excels at what it's supposed to do.
1. The keys project from the aluminum base-plate (rather than being sunk down into the chassis as is common on many keyboards). This makes it very easy to clean, and is a wonderful design choice.
2. The multimedia keys to the top right are actually harder to press than might otherwise be the case because of (1); the keys around them are quite high in comparison, which makes reaching those relatively low keys somewhat awkward.
3. The backlight is not perfectly even on the keys. The actual light is fairly close to the top of the keycap (i.e., toward the back of the keyboard), meaning that keys whose characters span the entire keycap- the shift key, the number keys, and keys like the period, semicolon, etc- will all suffer uneven backlighting as the bottom of the key is backlit less than the top of it. For example, on the "9" key, the "(" is well lit, whereas the "9" is much more poorly lit.
4. The spacebar is textured exactly the same way as the special 'textured keys'- WASD and 1-6- but does not come with a smooth version. It's black and not red, but you're stuck with the texturing all the time. In my opinion, this is a terrible design decision for actual typing. I've spoken to Corsair about this but no solution is forthcoming.
5. The MX Blue keys in the K70 are actually not as "blue" as they are in other keyboards. This is likely something you'll only notice if you've had many other sets of MX Blue keys: they are 'softer' and 'duller', with less of a firm actuation and audible 'click' than on, say, the Thermaltake Poseidon (which I also own). This isn't awful, but it is definitely noticeable. That said, they still do have a relatively firm actuation and they are very audible compared to other kinds of keys.
6. The chassis is very narrow, but it's reasonably deep. It's a lot smaller than some other keyboards, especially without the wrist-wrest. Always a good thing to see. It's also fairly solid, but the solidity seems to come from the baseplate below the keys and not the actual frame underneath that, which only seems mediocre.
I remember that wireless, membrane keyboards were developed to get rid of the clatter. I don't remember the offices I worked in being overly noisy but I guess they were. But I have to say it is good to have the clatter back. There is a comfort in the sound. The sound is neither loud nor offensive. I find it soothing and reassuring. When I type it sounds like work. One thing I did discover is that if the key sound bothers you you can buy O-rings to place on the key stems which will reduce the depth of the stroke and also soften the sound. And they come in different diameters.
The build on this board is amazing. It is solid. Made of aluminum. No flex. The finish is matt black. No fingerprints and the palm rest (not a wrist rest) is very comfortable. The board can be height adjusted with legs at the head and foot.
There are few frills but there is a metal volume control which works very well and buttoned media controls. I am used to a volume indicator popping up on my screen but I can live with its absence.
On its website Corsair recommends the Cherry Brown and Blue for typing as there is a resistance point in each downstroke and an audible click. Thinking I might have purchased the right board in the wrong flavour I went to the Internet and did a little research on the differences and preferences. It was divided. There were the purists who like mid-press resistance and claimed they could type faster. Then there were the pragmatists who liked the absence of a mid-press resistance offered by the Cherry Red. And also they said that after a day of typing they were less fatigued because of the difference in resistance. Then there were those who used the Cherry Brown or Blue at work and the Cherry Red at home or vice versa. I was never a fan of the click and I never saw that having the click mid-press let me type faster or helped my accuracy. I was never a good enough typist to only go as far as the resistance. I always envied the people who had mastered this skill as their fingers seem to float over the keys. I am a key-pounder. I like the sound. I like the feel of bottoming out. So maybe that is why I am so impressed with the Cherry Red action.
I understand why the industry left this type of board behind. Thank goodness for gamers and programmers. They kept it alive and I am grateful that they did. Corsair has built a fine board with the Corsair K70. When I find a product that I like I often buy a spare. I just may with this keyboard too. It is that special.
This is a highly recommended purchase.
Regresando al teclado en si, compre el teclado que viene con switches MX Brown y luz roja. Como era de esperarse el cambio de un Microsoft Natural 4000 es bastante notorio, las teclas son bastante suaves al tacto y se siente ese tope que caracteriza a los MX Brown. Me gusta mucho el detalle de los controles multimedia.
Mi plan para este teclado es para tenerlo en la oficina, me agrada que tenga la opcion de poder apagar los LEDs completamente. Es un poco mas ruidoso que mi otro teclado, pero principalmente porque aun no me acostumbro y presiono demasiado fuerte que las teclas pegan con la base. Con un poco de practica, parece que sera mucho mas silencioso o al menos igual.
Definitivamente el enfoque de este teclado es el mercado Gamer, y no decepciona. Viene con teclas AWSD1234 de remplazo para los que son fanáticos de los shooters. Tiene un puerto USB que se puede usar para conectar un Headset y ademas de un modo para deshabilitar la tecla de Windows. Ademas de un modo de iluminación especial.
El teclado viene con un switch BIOS que permite ajustar la velocidad con la que se registran las teclas. Siendo 1 el modo mas rápido y 8 el mas lento. Algunas computadoras no tan recientes pueden tener problemas con este teclado, si es asi, es posible que sea necesario usar un modo mas lento.
Amazon se sigue luciendo con los tiempos de entrega llego mucho antes de lo esperado, pidio firma para la entrega y el paquete estaba intacto.
Recuerden que este teclado utiliza la modalidad internacional, así que nada de letra ñ dedicada, sin embargo a travez de windows se puede elegir tipo de teclado usando teclado estados unidos internacional español México, dejando la ñ para altgr + n, algunos reajustes menores en comparación de teclados con configuraciones latinoamericanas y españolas sin embargo se acostumbra uno rápido.
Definitivamente si tienes curiosidad y el dinero prueba un teclado mecánico, no querras volver atrás , te enamoraras, y este teclado sencillo, sin tanto lujo es el ideal para iniciar en este mundo, mas si eres tu idea es buscar un teclado gaming aunque no cuente con macros especializados.
When I received it and tried it, OMG!!! It felt so great that it convinced me of the superiority of mechanical keyboards. I'm never going back to regular membrane keyboards. The wrist rest is quite confrotable and the keyboard has a perfect size for my setup and fit perfectly with my Corsair M65 RGB. I use the USB port for my mouse so my setup is not messy with cables all over the place. I like how you can adjust the luminosity of the LEDs and choose which ones to light up. The audio controls are very practical if your gaming and talking on Skype or Teamspeak at the same time and want to lower the game volume to hear your friends without leaving your game. Other keyboards might offer the same options but I bought Corsair because I have some Corsair Vengeance RAM sticks and a CPU watercooler H60 (Highly recommend) and they are amazing products. I bought it at the same time of my Corsair M65 RGB mouse. Corsair products are a must if you plan to game or simply because you want great quality.
The lighted keys are great and programming just the keys for whatever game I am playing works nicely also. The media keys are OK but I never use them and would rather have had a few dedicated keys that could be used to launch my browser or email app etc. The volume wheel is good but it's operation is slightly marred by the raised bit of metal above it. Why is it raised up like that? It's not like it needs protecting in case I hit the wheel by accident.
The above criticisms are minor and I still love this keyboard. The aesthetics and build quality are phenomenal.
The best feature is the Start key lock. When it's on, the Start key stops working, this has been useful for gaming and for programming in Emacs where I'm pressing Alt and Ctrl but I expect Start to do nothing.
Overall this is the best keyboard I've ever purchased and I wish I had gotten it a long time ago!
Soy programador y he notado que estoy empezando a teclear más rápido, cometo menos errores y bueno el sonido de los switches blue es simplemente hermoso al oído.
El envío fue entregado antes de lo esperado y el costo del mismo fue bajo para la distancia cubierta y el tiempo de entrega. Un 10 para Amazon definitivamente.
the backlight adjustable intensity is a great option, programmable features are fairly well balance.
took getting use to to learn the setup but once done this made thing easier to switch config between games.
It is very satisfying to type, it is cherry red so key activation is much easier. I'm still trying to get used to typing since I'm a fast type and I end up pressing other keys on accident.
My complaints are that the media keys are much lower than the normal keys. The WASD and Numbers 1-6 can be changed for textured keys. I find that the WASD key's contours make it more difficult to type. Perhaps during gaming situations it wouldn't matter. The textured number keys are missing the shift key prints. What I mean by this is on the actual key itself, only the number is printed. So on the 1 key, it only shows 1 instead of 1 and !. My complaints are quite small and this keyboard was completely worth it.
