4 out of 5 eggsCherry MX Keys OP

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: looks solid, feels solid, does everything i need it to do.
all a round good keyboard, does everything i expect from a keyboard except for macros.

Cons: the red LEDs reflect off my IPS panel, sort of annoying
louder than i originally thought, going to get O-rings
it feels like my eyes cant quite focus on the red LEDs, i wish they where white instead.

Other Thoughts: this is personal preferance, but since i usually smash the keys as i type, the brown keys are too light for me. next time, im picking up a cherry MX clear switch type keyboard.

also, it feels like my eyes cant focus on the red LEDs, i wish they where white instead.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Vengeance K70 With Cherry MX Brown Switches

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: -Amazing design and looks
-Functional and versatile back lighting
-Super sturdy construction
-Brown switches feel great

Cons: -USB pass through doesn't support high-power USB devices (Logitech unifying receivers, etc.)
-Aluminum finish is gorgeous, but shows fingerprints and dirt/dust/crumbs easily
-High adjusters don't have rubber feet

Other Thoughts: To preface, this is my first mechanical keyboard. I purchased this beauty after much consideration and searching. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with this amazing keyboard. At first the typing seemed a bit weird, as I have been using membrane keyboards all my life. After about a day, I was typing noticeably faster and more comfortably than before. I even went back to my membrane keyboard after a couple days to see if i missed it, and it felt so...."dead" on key press and hard to type on. Another thing that was hard to adjust to is the stair-like elevated keys. The rows of keys starting from the bottom get a bit higher every row they go up. I am used to a flat keyboard, so this was a bit hard to adjust for my typing stance and for gaming, but it was an easy, and more comfortable change in my opinion. For reference, I was coming from a Logitech Wireless K340

Although I listed that the pass through doesn't provide enough power, the Logitech wireless receiver worked for my mouse (most of the time). However, every 5 seconds I would get a notification from my task bar telling me that the USB device was drawing too much power. My recommendation, use this slot for a small usb mic or flash drive, nothing like a wifi dongle or anything power hungry.


If you want the TL:DR, If you are looking for a mechanical keyboard and have over 100$ to spend, I'd seriously consider this gorgeous peripheral.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this keyboard

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: Great back lighting, love the tactile feedback and relative silence of the brown switches, and the optional key-caps with the texture for 1-6 and WASD, they really help when trying to get back on track in an fps after typing in chat

Cons: I would have preferred the raised feet also had rubber grips on them.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid and Worthwhile

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: This is my first purchase of a mechanical-key keyboard. I chose the Brown Cherry-MX simply from reading the description -- Red is best for gaming, Blue is best for typing, Brown is good for both. I am pleased with the feel and sound of the Brown.

I bought this keyboard also for the lighting. I normally use all keys lit as I am in a darkened room. When I play a game, I want to selectively backlight the keys that I need to find quickly for in-game functions. One selective layout is stored in the keyboard. If you want multiple selective layouts, such as for different games, you will have to manually change the single selective backlighting layout. You can create/modify a selective layout starting from either all-on, all-off, or the current selective layout. You just touch the keys that you want to toggle the backlight on/off. There are three levels of brightness (including backlight off) that can be selected which applies to all backlighted keys.

The keyboard comes with red interchangeable keycaps for the W, A, S, D, and 1-6 keys. I do not intend to use these, as the selective backlighting serves the same purpose for me.

This is a USB 2.0 wired keyboard. The cable is fat because it actually contains two USB cables that plug into your computer. One plug is for the keyboard itself. The other plug is for the USB pass-through jack that is on the back of the keyboard. The two plugs are clearly labelled, and use of the pass-through plug is optional.

Cons: The keyboard comes with scant documentation. There is a little pamphlet that is smaller than you think because it contains six languages. It does not explain how to change the keycaps, what the "1 2 4 8 Bios" switch is on the back, how to turn on the "reactive typing" feature (it flashes each key as you type it), how to save multiple profiles (you can't), how to program macro keys (there aren't any), or what driver software you need (there isn't any).

Most of that information can be found on the Corsair forum.

Other Thoughts: There is no driver software for this keyboard. The computer sees it as a standard USB keyboard.

There are no programmable macro keys. The Newegg description says "6 Function Keys". This is incorrect. There are 12 function keys (F1-F12) as with any standard keyboard. If this is meant to refer to macro keys, this is also incorrect, as there are none.

5 out of 5 eggsVengeance K70

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: AMAZING keyboard. The brown switches sound perfect: Not too loud, but still sounding good to my ears. They feel great and the LED backlighting looks amazing. The lighting looks so much better in person then on the website. Even the multimedia keys work great. I don't think I will ever want to get a different keyboard now. My system specs are :
Motherboard- asus rog maximus vii hero.

OS - Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Processor- intel core i5-4690k (3.5 ghz, turbo boost 3.9ghz)

Ram- g. Skill F3 model 2x2gb (DDR3 240pin)

psu- firepower fatal1ty (550w 80 plus semi-modular)

Hard drive- WD black series 1003FZXE (1TB 7200 RPM 6MB cache, 6gb sata)

Monitor- asus 22'' (5ms response time, IPS panel, LED back lit,)

Keyboard - corsair vengeance k70 (cherry mx brown mechanical red LED)

Mouse- corsair raptor M45

Asus front base gaming panel (for fan controll, temp, and rpm speed redings, as well as auto ocer clocking by button press)

Case- NZXT source 210-s210-001(atx mid tower, ABS plastic and Black SECC steal)

Fans(4x)- corsair Air seriew CO-90 ( red led 120 mm 1500 RPM)

Cons: Maybe a wireless option? Or an extra USB port that can handle higher voltages would be nice. But honestly this keyboard is already perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this keyboard, 2nd mechanical buy

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: The awesome tactile response you come to expect from mechanical keyboards. Well built, great feel.

Cons: There are none. This keyboard comes as described. When I read about this keyboard and hear people complaining about the cord width, I have to double facepalm. CORSAIR IS GIVING YOU A PRODUCT THAT WON'T BREAK. lol but seriously what world do you live on where you would take an egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: This is my second mechanical keyboard, from Corsair. My first was the k95, and I bought this as a keyboard for my place of work thinking it would be quieter. Because of the way I type this MX brown switch model seems to be a bit louder(turns out my office mates don't even notice lol), which was totally fine so I this is now my home, gaming, keyboard. I get great use of the macro-key functionality at work(some people think it's so "next-level-computing", haha)!


If you want well built keyboard, step right up, I honestly don't think ill ever type on another brand of mech keyboards because of how much I love Corsair's.

also worth noting, I thought the red LED's might be annoying for at night use, but I was pleasantly surprised, they are easier on the eyes than I imagined, keeping in mind I originally thought I was going to use this KB during the day with no back lighting.

5 out of 5 eggsInitial Impressions

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: Amazing build quality. First mechanical keyboard after 5+ hours researching what type of keyboard to get. You will not be disappointed by this! Worth every penny.

Cons: Only con I have is the wrist support that this keyboard comes with got squeaky on me because my desk table is a little lop-sided.

Other Thoughts: A few drops of oil on the two hinges supporting it can be added to remove this, but I just removed the wrist support because it didn't seem all that necessary.

I originally believed that a few of my keys were already squeaking due to the wrist support squeaky sometimes I pressed my keys, but luckily I found the problem!

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: - Excellent feel. The keys are a dream to type on.

- Sturdy construction. All parts have a quality feel to them.

- Media controls. They have everything you need! I love them!

- Very quiet for a mechanical keyboard. 1st time mechanical keyboard owner here and I was expecting much a louder experience.

- White LEDs for caps, number and scroll lock.

- Windows key lock.

- LEDs are bright.

Cons: - Red LEDs. I really don't like red and for the price I should have the option to change the LEDs to any color I want. I would give this a 5 star rating if it weren't for the red LEDs. My previous keyboard was a Logitech Illuminated Keyboard K740. It has white LEDs and it was a pleasure to look at especially during the evening. I don't understand why the keys are red and the caps, number and scroll lock keys are white.

- Very thick USB cord. For the thickness, I would have expected more than one extra USB slot on the keyboard.

- USB slot in back of keyboard (a con if you have limited desk space).

- Brushed aluminum shows finger oils easily.

- Media keys and controller buttons could have been raised higher. It makes it more difficult than it should be to reach the media controls.

- Not in love with the font on the keys. I was expecting a larger, less bolded font.

- Hand rest feels slick and doesn't provide a lot of friction. You get used to it but I'm going to be picky for the cost of this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: This is my first mechanical keyboard. I ordered the cherry mx brown for work because it was supposed to be quiet and it is for a mechanical keyboard. I also liked the idea of a middle bump when pressing down. However, when I type fast, I don't even notice the bump, which is surprising. Overall this is a fantastic keyboard. I like it more than I thought I would. My biggest complaint is the red LEDs. I might actually return this and get a Das Keyboard 4 Professional because the red LEDs bug me so much.

5 out of 5 eggsThis keyboard is sinfull!

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: They should arrest you for using this board - the key presses are just sensual! Much, much better than a membrane board like my previous Logitech.

Cons: The only problem I had was that the keys seemed closer together than my previous board. However, that feeling went away within a day (so it is not really a problem).

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Keyboard

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: Incredible keyboard, love the feel and look of the keys and how they sound. It's comfortable to type on and the function keys area great. The Windows Key disable button is perfect for gaming. Like the LED underlighting along with the ability to customize your keys.

Cons: Thick cable, and I'm talking thick, not so bad when you get it in place but if you travel with a keyboard this might be a bit of a problem for you.
