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: 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.
Conclusion: Corsair have a solid reputation for solid quality products and that is something they’ve clearly adhered to today, this keyboard features faultless build quality and the choice of materials goes a long way to justifying the price tag. I’ve seen gaming keyboard with similar switches that come with a plastic covered chassis, giving them a much cheaper feel, but the full metal chassis and body work on the K70 just screams high quality all over.
Pros: High build quality, Customisable key caps, Excellent design
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.
