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.
