Fast & responsive gaming keyboard, Corsair K70 RAPIDFIRE review
Overall, the Corsair K70 is a very good gaming keyboard. It is well built, has solid ergonomics and provides a great writing experience that feels light and responsive. It has backlighting if you like to work or play games in the dark, dedicated media controls, and you can reassign or set a macro on any key. Unfortunately, some people may find the spacing between the keys a little exhausting and the Cherry MX Speed switches may be too sensitive to write because of their extremely low pre-travel distance. In addition, they do not provide any tactile feedback.
The Corsair K70 RAPIDFIRE is an excellent mechanical gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Speed switches. These switches have a very short pre-travel distance and a low driving force, which allows you to react to the speed of light when playing games. Its reinforced aluminum board feels sturdy, has dedicated multimedia controls, and although the backlight is limited to a single red color, the keys are individually lit, so you can create great lighting effects. It comes with a wrist rest and is comfortable enough to write for long periods; However, some may find the key spacing too wide and switches too sensitive for general typing. Each key is programmable, but unfortunately there is no dedicated macro key.
The Corsair K70 is an high quality gaming keyboard. Its Cherry MX Speed switches have a short pre-travel distance and low drive force, making the keys incredibly responsive and easy to press. There is very little flex on the board, the ergonomics is good, and there is backlighting, although it is limited to a single color. All keys are macro-programmable, but there is no dedicated macro key for MMO games.
The Corsair K70 is a good keyboard for office use. The build quality is good and has great compatibility with most desktop operating systems. It’s a convenient keyboard to type because of the included wrist rest and multiple tilt settings, but the wide key spacing can be tedious and can also cause more typos. The Cherry MX Speed switches may be too sensitive to write and not provide any tactile feedback, which some may not like. On the plus side, they don’t generate a lot of writing noise, so it shouldn’t be annoying for those around you.

The Corsair K70 uses iCUE software for customization. Allows you to program macros, reassign keys, and customize backlighting with different lighting effects. You can create and save as many profiles as you want within the software. This keyboard is advertised to have built-in memory; However, we were not able to save any profile on it. There have been reports of users experiencing this issue, as well as a problem with the backlight turned off completely when you close the iCUE software.
