Legendary mechanical gaming keyboard with virtually unlimited customization
The K70 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard begins with the performance of the legendary K70, and adds multicolor per-key backlighting for virtually unlimited customization. Every key is backed with a Cherry MX RGB key switch for precise actuation and superior feel. 104 full key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting ensure accurate gameplay.
Multi color backlighting unlim
Every one of the keys can be assigned a unique backlighting color. This gives you opportunities for key binding that you’ve never seen before in a mechanical keyboard.
Cherry MX Red Key Switches
Cherry MX Red key switches deliver smooth, linear key response with a wide actuation zone. They have the responsiveness you need for perfectly executing double and triple taps, and there’s no audible click or tactile 'bump'.
Aircraft-grade anodized finish
You get impressive looks, light weight, and the rugged durability you need for a keyboard that’s going to see a lot of action.
Desktop control softwaftware
Design your own per-key lighting patterns, select unique lighting for each key independently for your favorite games, or use the sophisticated macro programming tool.
Assign macros to any key
Just one more reason why the K70 RGB is one of the most advanced gaming keyboards the world has ever seen – you can set up any key to trigger a macro. The all-new Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) makes it easy. FPS, MOBA, or even Minecraft. ..the K70 RGB has it covered.
Fast and fluid RGB animation
The K70 RGB uses a Panasonic display controller for an amazing multicolor light show in a pulsing, waving and cascading array.
Do you take your gaming to go? Built-in storage lets you set it up once, and take it anywhere.
Easy-access multimedia control
You don’t just play games – you play music and video, too. Play, stop, pause, skip tracks and adjust volume directly from the K70 RGB.

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 body is cut from a piece of extruded aluminum with a shallow fold in the center that houses the key switches. The brushed, black anodized finish is incredibly done and has a has a beautiful deep-brushed texture. The black anodized Corsair logo is milled into the top of the aluminum frame and oozes sleek looks and how well built the keyboard is. The included wrist rest has a hard rubber finish (great for sliding your wrists around during typing) and snaps on from the back and feels robust for being plastic.The cable for the K70 is very thick and has a beautiful, tight-weave, braided black fabric sleeve that runs the entire length and splits into two red USB plugs (one for the keyboard, the other optional for a USB pass-through from the back of the keyboard). The back has four feet than can be flipped out to raise the board in any tilted configuration you can come up with.
They MX Red switches on the black version that I own are utterly amazing to type with. They are linear and have a very well tuned actuation which feels smooth and precise. The actuation travel happens about 1/3 of the way down and there is no bump or click. The whole actuation feels very smooth and event-less and feels totally foreign to a typical bubble dome key. The MX Reds are no-nonsense, quality keys and typing on them for the first time is really impressive. These switches have many benefits for gaming; the rebound is very quick and quick presses of a key are easily achieved and doesn't tire your fingers. The keys are not too bouncy, which is excellent for typing, but they do return quickly enough for fast tapping or repeated presses.
The main key layout is fairly standard, but the keys themselves sit very high off the aluminum frame which looks great but also allows for easy removal and cleaning; this is probably my favorite aspect of the K70. The keys are all inwardly (concave) curved on one axis (curving side to side) and feel very comfortable on your fingers. The spacebar is outwardly curved (convex) and has a fine triangle texture on it that helps for fps gaming and for accurate, fast actuation in typing. The plastic keycaps feels like they are coated with either epoxy or some other tough resin and have a very subtle 'soft-touch' feel to the material. The font on the keys is easily legible, but is slightly informal for my tastes (just my opinion). There are also optional gaming keys for WASD and numbers 1-5 that have a red, textured finish and heavily exaggerated curving to help you space your hand for WASD control. I don't use these personally, but it's a great option to have. The media keys on the top right are one of my other favorite parts of the K70; they are made from a nice rubberized plastic and are simple in layout and function (in order: Stop, Skip back, Play/Pause, Skip forward). Above the media keys is a mute button a volume roller. The roller is wide and made from black-anodized aluminum with an engraved diamond pattern on it; it's lightly dampened and is incredibly precise and is loads of fun to play with! To the left of the volume rocker are three buttons to control the lighting mode (individual control vs. all keys), a brightness button (Modes: LEDs off, and three levels of brightness), and a windows lock key that lights up when you engage it. There are also three white LEDs just to the right before the volume roller that indicate numlock, capslock, and scroll-lock.
The backlighting on the keys on the black K70 looks fantastic and ominous in its saturated and striking red hue. The three brightness levels are well spaced and on the brightest setting I can easily see them under a bright light (at night this setting is blinding!) The high keys allow for much of the LED light to spill out onto the aluminum frame and glow back at you. Really cool stuff and it helps you see which keys are lit up on the program modes. If you press the lighting mode key you can light individual keys by holding down the button; it will blink allowing you to press buttons and light them individually, then holding the button again allows you to set the keys you have chosen for that mode. Pressing the lighting mode button again will turn on all of the lights. A hidden function of the lighting mode button is to put the keyboard into individual lighting mode and then hold the mode button and the control key for a few seconds: the keys will now light up for about 1/2 second after you press them and then turn off. It's not useful, but it looks really cool! (holding down the same two buttons will disengage this mode).
Overall the key accuracy and feel of typing on the K70 is purely enjoyable on every level. Smooth and precise, comfortable and engaging. Here are my overall thoughts on the Black K70 with MX Reds:
- Outstanding build quality, materials, and design
- Very durable and beautiful frame/finish
- Smooth, accurate keystrokes for effortless typing and pressing(even better for gaming!)
- Tall key switches/caps for easy cleaning and a flexible typing space
- Optional contoured gaming keycaps
- Included keycap puller
- Useful and great-looking backlighting
- Lots of lighting modes and interesting possibilities
- Well thought out media keys are the best volume control I've ever used
- Thick, robust cabling with impeccable sleeving
- USB pass-through on the back of the keyboard (single)
- Overall, clean and amazing aesthetics to match the performance
- Blacklighting on the number keys isn't quite even (the alternate functions light up brighter than the numbers on the bottom)
- Wrist rest could be slightly larger/taller
- Tall key position might put some people off (this is preference, personally I enjoy this)
- Only backlighting color is red, again this comes down to preference
This is a fantastic keyboard, and one I hope to use for a very long time. Corsair nailed this design and it pulls out all the stops in terms of build quality, typing/usability, and aesthetics. I highly recommend getting this keyboard not only for gaming, but for a fantastic typing experience.
2-Very attractive keyboard(the black aluminum is beautiful and the wrist wrest is amazing)
3-I love that the entire top surface is aluminum
4-Great key feel
5-Heavy duty cord
6-Swappable WASD keys are great
7-Very solid construction
8-Key removal tool is genius
9-Controls (volume lughting etc) are very well done and not an afterthought like many keyboards)
1- HUGE.. the keyboard is not recognized in BIOS by my computer. Yes it is healthy computer that 3 other keyboards work fine in bios on) When my computer restarts for some reason (game blue screen mainly) and i have to hit enter to get it to launch windows normally the keoyboard is not recognized. I need to have a cheap keyboard hooked up in order to click past the bios menu.
2-The 1-6 numbers keys do not have the punctuation symbols on them or lit... now i know i know they are for gaming.... but i also type in games for chat and its not cool i had to replace the 1-6 swappable gaming keys for the regular because i could not tell what symbol it was.. and no i should not have to remember which symbol is which.
3- MINOR issue with the wrist rest... when i am gaming for a long time my arm sticks to the pad and lifts the keyboard off the desk a little... not a big deal but hey it can be minorly annoying.
I am comparing this keyboard to my other keyboards which are :3x razer black widows various editions, Cyborg Strike 7 (HORRID waste of 300.00), Razer ananasi, razer deathstalker, Logitech G15 and G19 and G105.
