    Nice keyboard with one annoying caveat, January 13, 2016

    This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit Red LED, Cherry MX Blue (Personal Computers)

    I have the 2016 version with the cherry blue switches. These are the clicky switches, which I wanted since I’m coming from an old IBM Model M with its clicky buckling springs. I’ve owned an NMB clicky keyswitch keyboard in the past as well as an old Tandy keyboard that had switches similar to the non-clicky cherry reds, so I’ve got some pretty high standards for keyboard feel and I’m comparing this one with some quality keyboards of different types.

    I’m both a typist and a gamer. For typing, clicky keyboards really can’t be beat. Compared to my Model M, the K70 has a much lighter feel to the keys – I can really fly on it. However, it’s disappointingly inconsistent, with some keys (mostly the larger keys like enter, backspace and shift) requiring a heavier keypress. These keys also feel a bit “mushy” compared to the others. This is actually pretty annoying in practice, and the problem is obviously the stabilizers used on these keys to keep them level when pressed, which increase resistance. (The space bar doesn’t suffer from this, probably because it has more mass than the other stabilized keys.)

    The Model M and other older keyswitch keyboards I’ve used have had no such issue – every key, whether a “big” key or one of the standard letter keys, requires the same amount of force. There’s probably some way to lessen the resistance of the stabilizers on the K70, maybe even with some grease or something, but I haven’t found a universally accepted solution online (though I have found others complaining about the same issue). There’s a “clip mod” that some people talk about, but it’s a little advanced and no doubt voids the warranty because it requires you to physically clip off parts of the stabilizers.

    This actually makes the keyboard overall feel kind of cheap, like a Chinese knockoff of a buckling spring or older keyswitch keyboard. This issue is apparently unique to keyboards using Cherry-made stabilizers (as opposed to Costar), but they’re pretty common, and it’s the one knock I really have on this keyboard.

    Otherwise, it’s a really nice, well-built keyboard. It has a metal base, a braided cord and a space-saving design – this last point is really something I was looking for coming from the Model M, which is huge. The K70 is about as small as a full-size 104 key keyboard can be, with the total width basically only as wide as the keys themselves, and extra “height” only for the media and backlight keys on on the top. The keys seem to float over the base; that’s how close to the edge they are. The media keys and volume control “just work” and don’t require any additional software (I’m using Windows 10). I game a lot late at night, so having a volume control on the keyboard was another thing I really wanted, and it’s really nice that it’s actually a roller/dial rather than buttons. Much quicker to adjust.

    It’s a little disappointing that Corsair only offers the blue switches with a basic red backlight anymore, but luckily that matches my overall color scheme so I wasn’t too broken up about it. The backlight itself is blindingly bright (and *really* red) on its top setting; I normally keep it on its lowest brightness, but YMMV if you’re not in a dark room like I usually am. Like a lot of other mechanical keyboards I’ve seen, the backlight on the number keys doesn’t quite line up right, but this doesn’t bother me – it’s bright enough to see.

    The K70 comes with removable key caps and a cap remover, as well as a subset of extra key caps for fps’s and other games. These are the red keys you see in the photos. I do have these installed and it’s still possible to type with them on despite the ridges that mark them off as the “gaming area”. They do make it a little easier to tell where you are on the keyboard when gaming without looking down, though I wouldn’t base my purchase on them. They’re just nice to have.

    As for gaming itself with the clicky blue switches, well, I mainly play fps’s, rpg’s and strategy games that don’t require a lot of double-taps. To be honest, in the games I play, I actually think a non-clicky keyboard would be a bad thing. The cherry red switches have no tactitle bump at all, meaning it’s not clear when you’ve actually pressed the key. I do often keep keys half-pressed to be ready, and you can really only do that with a tactile keyboard that gives you a little resistance just before the actuation point. So I think the blue switches are actually better for certain types of games.

    That said, the K70 isn’t a definitive overall upgrade from my Model M, although it does offer some clear advantages, such as size and integrated controls. For those reasons I’ll probably keep using it for now. In terms of typing feel, though, IBM’s good old buckling spring technology still has everyone beat. Keep in mind that a lot of mechanical keyboards these days use the exact same…

    This review is for the pre-2016 version, Model CH-9000076-NA with Cherry MX Blue switches and red LED backlighting. The newer version is CH-9000115-NA and as far as I can tell, the only differences are the logo (older “crab” logo vs the sailing ship) and the spacebar (older version is not backlit, newer version has a backlit horizonal bar).

    This keyboard is a pleasure to use. Typists will appreciate the tactile feedback. Plus, the keys are raised off the base so the keyboard is much easier to clean. It’s also not as loud as I had feared, however I wouldn’t use it in an office environment as it makes an easily noticeable clicky noise that may bother those nearby. Construction quality is solid with a good heft that keeps it from moving around on a desk. Unlike many gaming keyboards that have a gaudy appearance, the K70 appears nicely understated with a brushed aluminum body and elegant typeface on the keys. There is a USB pass-through port at the back which I use for my mouse. There are a set of convenient media controls at the top right corner. The braided cables and soft-touch wrist rest are additional pluses.

    There are a few things that keep the K70 from being an outstanding keyboard. First, the media keys are not well lit. The mute button has its own LED but the stop, skip back, play/pause, and skip forward keys share one LED so they are quite dim. Worse, the volume controller is not lit at all. Second, the LEDs appear to be placed near the top of each key so for those keys with stacked symbols (e.g. those in the row between the function keys and the QWERTY row) the symbols on top are well lit but the symbols on the bottom are dim. Third, I’d like to see either a headphone/mic jack or a second USB pass-through port both a mouse and a headset can be plugged in simultaneously. Fourth, the Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock indicator lights are located near the top-right edge, above the Pause/Break key. I’d prefer them to be located on the keys themselves, especially considering the indicator labels are not lit.

    Note that this keyboard doesn’t support macro programming. For that, I believe you need to get the RGB version.

    Omg I love this keyboard! Lighting is super bright, mechanical keys clickity clack lick no one’s business, and the extra audio keys are actually useful, such as the metal roller for volume. I’ve never powned such quality in a keyboard, arguably my most used input device. The double USB cord is braided nylon and super heavy duty, the body of the keyboard is aluminum. And its worth every penny.
