VENGEANCE® K70 Special Edition Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Silver — CHERRY® MX Red
CORSAIR VENGEANCE K70 offers a full set of CHERRY® MX Blue key switches, key-by-key adjustable brilliant red backlighting, and 100% anti-ghosting, all in a rugged, professional-grade brushed aluminum chassis.
The Vengeance K70 Gaming Keyboard: designed for performance gaming
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 on USB 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 program backlighting for each key independently, so you can set up a custom-lit key binding and save it to onboard memory.
Looks great on your desktop
Not only is the K70 a remarkable gaming keyboard – it looks amazing, too. The frame is brushed aluminum, and the brilliant red backlighting gives it the unmistakable look of serious gaming machinery.

Key-by-Key customizable backlighting

Brushed aluminum chassis
The K70 frame has a professional-grade look and feel, plus the rugged durability you need for hours of gaming.
100% Anti-Ghosting with full key rollover on USB
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.
Easy-access dedicated 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.
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.
Soft-touch wrist rest
Give your wrists a break, or take it off if it gets in the way.
An extra USB connector is provided. It’s great for attaching a Vengeance gaming mouse or headset.
Red, Blue, or Brown: Your choice, for your style.
Corsair Vengeance K70 is available in three choices of CHERRY® MX key switches:
CHERRY® MX Red
Choose this model and you’ll get smooth, linear key response for ultra fast double and triple taps without a distracting audible click. There’s no tactile “bump” that’s traditionally built in to general-purpose keyboards.
CHERRY® MX Brown
Want superior gaming performance on a keyboard that’s also good for typing? CHERRY® MX Brown switches provide fast and precise actuation for fast, competitive play. There’s light tactile feedback for comfortable typing, but no audible click that might be a distraction.
CHERRY® MX Blue
If you do a lot of gaming when you’re not writing long forum posts or working on your novel, CHERRY® MX Blue switches provide a combination of great gaming performance along with tactile feedback and an audible click that can be helpful when you’re typing.

Vengeance K70 wins Editor's Choice Award from PC Gamer!
When it comes to gaming keyboards, it’s all about the mechanical switch keys. Corsair have used them to make some seriously good boards but the new Vengeance K70 is my current favourite. I’ve been using its keenly admired predecessor, the Vengeance K60, as my main workhorse since the range launched in spring 2012. That wasn’t without its problems, but Corsair have listened, and polished up almost all of those faults in this pricey but excellent addition to the series.Full Review!

Vengeance K70 gets Recommended Award from Guru3D!
“We like the rubberized swappable WASD & 1~6 keys and that back-lighting system is just downright hot stuff. So with all factors and features combined we again recommend the K70 to the masses of FPS players out there.”Full Review!

K70 wins Silver award from Hardware-Info UK!
“The Corsair K70 is a comprehensive yet modestly-sized gaming keyboard with mechanical keys. It doesn't feature any extra gaming keys, but you do get key-by-key customizable backlighting, a wrist support, media keys and special keys for the WASD and 1-6 keys. The Cherry MX Red keys are great for typing and gaming, and the build quality is solid with the aluminium top. The same keyboard will soon also be available with Cherry MX Brown or Blue keys. The average price of £123 or € 134 for a mechanical keyboard of this level of quality is very reasonable, especially considering the material. The Corsair K70 therefore walks away with the Hardware.Info Silver Award.”Full Review!
