Product on Review: Corsair K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE MK.2
Street Price: £149.99 / $149.99
The Corsair K70 has been around for a number of years now, with several different variations and improvements in that time, however they were all just small, incremental adjustments not worthy of a new version number. Today, that changes, with the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2.
Though at first glance, it’s difficult to set one apart from the other, the small improvements throughout should make the already-much-loved K70 even more loveable. Corsair have put the K70 through stringent tests and even asked elite-level pro gamers such as Annemunition and Bajheera for feedback and suggestions, as well as relying on the community at large for ideas. Many manufacturers often use the “If it isn’t broken, fix it until it is” mentality when it comes to designing the next revision of popular hardware, while Corsair have strictly kept things as familiar as possible.
Still featuring the Cherry MX key switches, we see the option of Silent, Red, Blue and Brown, which is pretty standard for the K70 series, however with the RAPIDFIRE model, which we have to review today, we get the Cherry MX Speed switch, requiring only 45cN of force and 1.2mm of travel to actuate.
We won’t reveal any further new features here, you’ll have to read on for more.
