Conclusion: Corsair’s Vengeance K70 delivers both a great gaming experience and features that are handy when you’re working at the desktop as well. Ideally, though, since we both write and game a fair bit, we’d probably prefer the version of the Vengeance K70 with Cherry MX Brown switches. We just wish it didn’t come only in silver with blue backlighting, as we quite like the menacing look of the black model with its red backlighting.
Excerpt: Corsair already has a well-established history of making high-quality PC components. Their foray into gaming keyboards is called the Vengeance K70. Powerful features and strong design highlight the K70's strengths, but the complete lack of customization options holds it back from being one of the top gaming keyboards.
Pros: Robust design and superior backlight control make this keyboard easy to recommend.
Cons: A complete lack of macro support means this keyboard won't appeal to a large portion of PC gamers.
Summary: I have to admit that when I got both the Corsair Vengeance K70 and K95 mechanical keyboards, I only put the K95 on the bench first because it is the biggest and the highest-end keyboard Corsair offers. But I really could not wait to get the smaller K60 on my desktop. The reason for this is that I am more of a FPS gamer than any other genre. I really love the fast pace shoot ‘em up style as there is no boring moments within a match or game.
Summary: When we tested the Vengeance K60 keyboard we where impressed, the same applied to the K90 and now the K70 again is a product that brings a smile to my face. Sure, the Corsair Vengeance K70 is not a completely new design keyboard though, its the evolution of the Vengeance Gaming Keyboard series and quite honestly, Corsair did a splendid job as this round they listened to end-user feedback. All keys now are mechanical, so no more dome based keys.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: About 18 months ago we first saw the fruits of the Corsair Vengeance line appear with the K60 and K90 mechanical keyboards, along with the M60 and M90 mice. All of which proved to be hugely popular. Partly because they were Corsair products and the value of a brand name can't be overstated, but equally because Corsair had got them right, straight out the box.
Conclusion: Over time we have come to expect great things from Corsair's product teams, whether it be their previous core memory business or the relatively new peripheral line. The strength of the brand breeds users who are both content with the products they have bought and eager to see the next big thing. It's through that lens we are sometimes forced to look, for good or ill. From a look and feel perspective everyone would be forced to concede that the Vengeance K70 is excellent.
Pros: + Excellent build quality, + Cherry MX Red switches, + Red LED backlighting, + Easily detachable wrist-rest runs the length of the keyboard, + Media keys and volume wheel, + Windows lock key through hardware, + Polling rate selection as part of hardware.
Excerpt: Det er et par år siden vi testet Corsairs første spilltastatur. Som forventet fra et selskap vi er vant med at leverer gjennomtenkte og solide produkter, hadde Corsair valgt å gå for mekaniske taster og litt annerledes design.
Pros: Tøff design. God byggekvalitet. Presist og raskt. Usb-utgang
