CORSAIR Gaming K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard — CHERRY® MX Brown (UK)
The CORSAIR Gaming K70 is a fully mechanical gaming keyboard with CHERRY® MX Brown key switches, contoured FPS control keys, key-by-key customizable backlighting, and full key matrix anti-ghosting with full key rollover on USB.
Designed for performance gaming
The Corsair Gaming K70 is a fully mechanical gaming keyboard with an anodized, brushed aluminum chassis for a professional-grade look and feel. Contoured, textured FPS keys keep you in control if shooters are your game. It’s built with 100% Cherry MX switches, and key by key customizable backlighting lets you illuminate your key bindings. 100% anti-ghosting with 104 key rollover on USB helps ensure accuracy, so every keystroke translates directly into accurate gameplay.
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 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 Brown Mechanical Key Switches
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.
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. It's saved directly to the K70 onboard memory, so you can take your light maps with you.
Black anodized, 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 104 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 Corsair Gaming mouse or headset.

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!

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!
