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 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 use the software to program back-lighting for each key independently, so you can set up custom-lit key bindings for each game you play. And, once you've tweaked it to your tastes, the on-board memory lets you take your settings with you.
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.
100% Cherry MX Red Mechanical Key Switches You get smooth, linear key response for ultra fast double and triple taps without the audible click.
Key-by-Key Customizable Backlighting Deep red LEDs with adjustable brightness and key-by-key programmability to light up just the keys you need. It’s great for illuminating your key bindings for each game, and you can store multiple presets. They’re saved directly to the K70 onboard memory, so you can take your light maps with you.
Brushed Aluminum Chassis The K70 frame has a professional-grade look and feel, plus the rugged durability you need for hours of gaming.
Full key Matrix Anti-Ghosting with full-Key Rollover Every keystroke translates into accurate gameplay—even when multiple keys are pressed. There’s no signal degradation, and it keeps up with you, no matter how fast you play.
Contoured, Textured WASD and 1-6 Keycaps Keep your eyes on the action with easy to locate FPS keys. An extra set of standard typing keycaps and a keycap replacement tool are provided for general typing.
Easy-Access Multimedia Controls You don’t just play games – you play music and video, too. Play, stop, pause, skip tracks and adjust volume directly from the K70.
USB Pass-Through An extra USB connector is provided. It’s great for attaching a Vengeance gaming mouse or headset.
Soft-Touch Wrist Rest Give your wrists a break, or take it off if it gets in the way.
