Pros: Seems to be of solid build. Secondary backlighting option allows for each key to be turned on or off. While it would be nice if it was USB3, USB2 extension through keyboard allows for convenient splitter location taped under desk for close mouse sensor and flash drives.
Cons: An hour or so after first plugging it in at home the keyboard stopped communicating with the PC. The lights would turn on and off, but nothing registered with the device. After rebooting, keyboard works (for the most part). On main desktop CAPS lock light is stuck on, and others are stuck off. On...
Summary: Overall this is a nice solid keyboard. This is my first gaming mechanical keyboard and am fairly pleased. Before I get too far into the review however I will say I get the impression Corsair's quality control is lacking and before you get too comfortable with yours be sure to check all the keys and...
Summary: This keyboard feels and looks of high quality but ingame compared to the rather cheap and now discontinued Microsoft keyboard I had used before this one... it felt as though as I was far more in control where this one simply does not tell my finger it has pressed a key.
Pros: General High Quality Backlit
Cons: Keys are too easily influenced. I'd often mistakenly press the Space key for instance and less so over time but yet persistently to this day, among other keys occasionally.
Summary: I would love a functional keyboard, and I hope to receive one when I pay $100+ for a keyboard. But it's not worth RMA-ing repeatedly to be entered into the lottery for a fully functional model.
Summary: Keyboard works great. It's aluminum base is heavy. which would be good in a tray. My use is in my lap while gaming. Keyboard is unforgivable if you are not an excellent typists, keys are very sensitive. I found I am not as good a typists as previously believed.
Solid board, but needs some ironing out on the firmware/software side.

Summary: This keyboard, when functional is pretty amazing. The things you can personally do with the provided software, or the things other have done are nothing short of amazing. Mechanically the board is as sound as they come.
Summary: I have really enjoyed the responsiveness of this keyboard, however, here it is 6 months later and I have several keys failing to work properly and others that seem to work overtime in a manner of speaking.
Pros: Great when and while it functions as it should!
Cons: I have really enjoyed the responsiveness of this keyboard, however, here it is 6 months later and I have several keys failing to work properly and others that seem to work overtime in a manner of speaking. My laft shift key has a mind of its own and works when it feels like it, the right shift ke...
Summary: The K70 itself is a fantastic keyboard; strong and lightweight, media keys and volume knob, attractive to anyone - however, the RGB is not a direct upgrade to the original model in terms of functionality. Corsair's RGB backlighting is noticeably more dim, bleeds color everywhere, and costs $40 more.
Summary: I preordered this keyboard thinking I would love it. Never having owned a mechanical keyboard, I was not sure which cherry MX keys that I would want so I figured I would try the reds. I hate typing on Cherry MX red keys. I really want the tactile feedback that it doesn't provide.
