5 out of 5 eggsSuperb Quality Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: This keyboard has served me well for almost a year. I'm writing this review with it right now. It retains its comfort since the day I bought it. The wrist rest has a soft rubber smooth texture with small nodes imprinted for friction. Overall it's a very nice touch and clicks in securely but easily too.
Typing on the Cherry MX Red switches was a whole new experience that has spoiled me from membrane mushers forever. I've tried Blue, Brown, Black, and Red switches and can say that the reds are my favorite. Browns are great for typing, Blues are a little gimmicky and get annoying fast (for me, some people live by them), and blacks were a very close match to the reds except were not quite as sensitive. That made it better for typing than the Reds but I preferred the quicker response.
Moving on to the LED's and lighting, the lighting is some of the brightest and most reliable that I've experienced. It has four options ranging from off to VERY bright. I tone it down sometimes because of the intense luminosity. Some say that the F keys are dimmer, but they are slightly so, only because the LED light isn't centered underneath the laser etching for F keys. The lights are fine. I have never had a problem with one of the LED's going out. Strong clean blue was a personal favorite and are going strong to this day.
The keys themselves have a great smooth texture, and a simple font that looks a lot better than certain other brands that try and have a greenish gamer pseudo-futuristic style that I find juvenile. The laser etching ensures that nothing will erase the imprints. The spacebar has a great texturing on it, that's actually pretty insignificant but is a nice touch. The anodized aluminum backing is awesome, keeping the keyboard feeling solid. The K70 is easy to clean because of the space between the keys and the backing, and they come off easily with the included keycap popper. The cable is a thick braided cable that is VERY thick and strong. No fraying for over a year and it's been bent around quite a lot. The USB Passthrough works great and the back ends of the K70 cable shows you which USB is for the board and which is for the passthrough. I believe they are gold plated. There are four feet on the bottom for adjustment, and if you take the wrist rest off there is even a spot for the old one from the K60.
Finally, there is even a BIOS switch along with the polling rate switch which let me use this in BIOS when building my brother's computer without needing to get an old PS2 keyboard. Great addition.

Cons: The lighting options are cool— they have individual key backlighting and good lighting level adjustment but for the same pricing other brands offer insane lighting modes like snaking, etc. I think there could be more profiles since there is only one right now besides the default, and perhaps more modes in the future. The spacebar is a bit wobbly for me, more so than other keyboards but not by much. Just a small thing I thought was worth mentioning. The overall biggest con besides those small features is the lack of rubber feet. Even the $10 membrane board I used before this one had rubber feet. There are four of them and they can really help with raising the level to the right comfort level but they can't be used because otherwise it will slide around too much. Almost all other keyboards in this price range offer that. It's a shame that slipped by Corsair.

Other Thoughts: In conclusion, I was extremely pleased with this keyboard. Despite some minor issues I found the quality to be incredible. The keys are fantastic, the lighting is great, the design is top notch, and the wrist rest and cables are also sturdy. Would strongly recommend over almost any other keyboard in this price range for somebody looking for a cleanly designed quality mechanical keyboard. Also, there is a reactive backlighting mode that they do not advertise, but I think' it's cool. You can activate it by pressing Ctrl and the keyboard's record key for setting the profile at the same time. Pretty cool feature.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Simple, Sturdy Design.
This keyboard doesn't try to do anything too fancy. It's just well built. No overabundance of macro keys (You may not find this as a pro)
It's a mechanical Keyboard
Individual Backlit LEDs
Keycaps are raised - makes it very easy to clean and prevents it from getting very dirty

Cons: I've had issues with LEDs burning out. About 6 months into owning the keyboard I started to notice that my "g" key was burnt out. Not long after, my 6, 8, tab, q, and f8 keys were all out. I contacted corsair and sent the keyboard for an RMA. Corsair Customer support was very efficient. However, my new k90 6 months or so in currenlty has a dead "E" key LED. I can't justify the shipping cost to get it replaced again.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for your first mechanical keyboard, make sure you know what kind of keycaps you want. I play a wide array of games, and the red keys are very suited to twitch gameplay as they don't take much force at all to click. Personally I'd likely buy a keybaord with blue or brown keys in the future (I love the clickiness), although I still love this keyboard.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsGoing downhill

Pros: Mechanical keys
Adjustable lighting
USB port
Basic media controls (very handy and not over done)
Keyboard is heavy enough to keep it from sliding around
Metal construction
Braided cable cover and reinforced at the ends
Lettering is still visible when keys are dark

Cons: I bought this keyboard last summer, and still have another year on the warranty. Initially I was annoyed that some of the keys were touchy and prone to insert letters when typing. The K key is my nemesis as a touch typist used to the home row. I'm particularly aggravated that three keys have gone dark within the last week; 6, 8 and then Z just an hour ago. You can imagine how annoying it would be to have a high use key like Z go dark (that would be sarcasm).

Other Thoughts: This is a moderately expensive gaming keyboard, and the expectation is a more robust build that should certainly hold up to someone who only wanted mechanical keys, and pretty blue lights. I"m disappointed. Having to deal with a warranty repair, and paying for shipping is almost enough to make me chuck this keyboard, and not waste further money on additional Corsair products. It was certainly enough to finally make me write this review. Now, what could go wrong with a computer case after a year?

1 out of 5 eggsLED failure

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: LED failure

Other Thoughts: One LED failed after about 2 weeks. After about 6 months 3 more have gone. I wouldn't recommend spending $100+ on a keyboard unless all of its functions work properly. If I could get a refund I would get something more reliable, but of course it can only be replaced by another K70 that will probably be just as low quality. I ignored the bad reviews for this keyboard because it had so many good reviews as well and now I'm stuck with 4 dead LEDs and probably more to come.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Fully Mechanical
Somewhat quite while typing, unlike most mechanical, with about the same tactile like feedback.
Nice brushed aluminum finish, easy to keep clean.

Cons: Only issue I've had with the keyboard is after about 6 months I have about 20+ dead LED lights on different keys.

Other Thoughts: All in all, great keyboard for gaming. The fully mechanical and anti-ghosting give a great feeling while playing games, and that you're actually getting the response you need. The extra keys that go on the WASD and 1-6 keys are a good addition, and allow you to stay in alignment even if your hands move a alot.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Keyboard

Pros: I love the feel and features of this keyboard.
Responsive key strokes.
Cool looking lights
Nice utilities features

Cons: Price is kind of high, but worth it for such a solid keyboard. The only thing that would cause me to regret spending so much is if it breaks in the next year. But after a few months it shows no signs of wear.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware of the cheap LEDs

Pros: Sturdy keyboard

Cons: After having this keyboard for over 2 months now, the LEDs started to burn out. I was very weary of buying this keyboard because of other reviews saying their LEDs started to burn out around 2 months time. It's a shame for the price of this keyboard the quality is so poor, I had a cheap $30 blue LED keyboard for 6 years before this one and never had one burn out. Such a disappointment.

Other Thoughts: Not looking forward to RMA process as it takes days or even weeks to get items replaced.

Manufacturer Response:
