About this deal

This is particularly apparent on the rear shelf and low lip along the front of the K70, which catch the light brilliantly and, we suspect, have as much an aesthetic purpose as they do a practical one. However, if you’re gonna shell out money for this keyboard, consider getting the version that has the PBT keycaps as it’s only slightly more expensive and the keycaps will last a lot longer before becoming worn and gross. The two non-rubber lined flip-out risers at the front tilts the keyboard up for those who prefer it. s design is an X-shaped channel that runs underneath the body of the keyboard, allowing you to route cables underneath without cluttering up your desk. is a standard full-sized board, and not a Tenkeyless board, which is sometimes a consideration if you’re tight on space.

Stand out with a special silver anodized brushed aluminum frame and stunning white precision-molded, double-shot keycaps. Our Corsair unit has Cherry MX Brown switches that feel slightly heavier than the HyperX Reds; however, they provide tactile feedback, which some might prefer for typing. It has enough texture and the material has a slightly rubbery feel making it feel not too hard and not too "sticky" especially when sweaty. I’ve been using this keyboard for an embarrassingly long time before reviewing it, and the keycaps don’t really look worn. There’s still no dedicated macro keys like on the K95, but as I’ll discuss in a moment, you can use any key on the K70 MK.

Every key, except for the 'Profile Switching' and the 'RGB Brightness' keys are macro programmable through the iCUE software, and the Windows Lock Key can be reprogrammed to a few different functions.

The keyboard still works and you can type on it, but you can’t edit any of the settings or use profiles not saved to the onboard memory. And that lack of crispiness, combined with short travel, leads to a highly comfortable and un-strenuous typing experience, which is something not every mechanical keyboard can match. Low Profile came in an elongated brown corrugated cardboard box from Ryder Integrated Logistics in Ontario, California, USA.

Even if you have never heard of Ryder Integrated Logistics, you have probably seen their rental trucks roaming the streets of our continent. But if your keyboard is positioned at the appropriate height, and your arms are resting comfortably, there shouldn’t be a lot of pressure on your palms to begin with.

Other design missteps include the unnecessarily widened cyber-font used on the keys, which does little but take down the class a notch, and the rather small feet which make next to no difference to the keyboard's angle, but do make it slide around a little more than when the full footprint of the silicon pads underneath are in contact with your desk. It's a wired-only keyboard, so you need to run a cable running from the couch to the computer, which isn't ideal if you have kids or pets.But when you get the hang of things, iCue works fairly well and you can sync lighting up between all of your various Corsair peripherals and even internal computer hardware components.
