Okay, we're going to have a closer look at the product guided with the help of lots of photos. As always packaging and bundle first. The core features of the K60 and K70 are the same, and include Cherry MX Red keys (you can choose RED, Blue Black), 1000Hz polling, full-key rollover though, over USB and 100% anti-ghosting. Obviously the packaging has changed to suit the professional Corsair Gaming line of products.


Unpacking shows a simple bundle, the keyboard, the soft touch wrist rest and a manual/warranty guide. The K70 RGB does not come with extra red replaceable WASD and 1 to 6 rubberized keys as the previous model had, we'll explain later as to why that is. The K70 is marketed as a FPS keyboard. Across the keyboard you will notice RGB back-lights on the K70, these can be dimmed, colored and configured. We'll show you the keyboard powered on over the next few pages of course. And to demonstrate the coolness factor, we'll have a video as well.


Once we have a better and closer look at the keyboard the word sturdy comes to mind. If you didn't know it, you'd figure to have the regular K70 in front of you. The keyboard once again is heavy, made out of a plastic base with brushed aluminum on top of it. The anodized brushed black aluminum looks just kicks freaking ass as far as my taste goes (ok that was a lot of ass). You will notice that we received the the model with Cherry RED keys. The aluminum top base gives the product a rather unique look and feel. It will also help with dampening vibrations.



The media function keys on the keyboard itself are basic yet functional. The metal volume knob is really handy. There is also a windows lock mode key, which allows you to disable the Windows key and get dropped back to the desktop by accident in a hefty gaming session. These functions are all supported at default, there's no need to install any software whatsoever. The keys themselves are exposed though, simple cleaning works out well with say a can of compressed air. However, being exposed like that has another effect as well, the base will collect dirt more quickly. It's not massively different with normal keyboards, but sure the base is exposed and a little more susceptible to dirt.
