Product on Review: Corsair K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE
Manufacturer & Sponsor: Corsair
Street Price: UK: £149.99, US: $169.99
The Corsair K70 has been one of the most popular mechanical gaming keyboards around, understandable considering its beautiful brushed aluminium finish and quality construction. It could also be because of fluid lighting effects and powerful CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) software which allows for advanced customisation and full programmability, giving the user a real sense of control.
This is where the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE gets a twist. Remixing the formula for 2016, Corsair have a timed exclusive deal with CHERRY to outfit their keyboards with the latest MX Speed switches. Featuring a 45cN actuation force and a 1.2mm actuation distance, they are the fastest and most precise switches available from CHERRY. That isn't their only improvement, they are optimised for SMD LEDs with high output luminosities to give a brighter and more vivid experience.
