This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: Ok, I was very sceptical paying this much for a keyboard. Worth every penny. The typing is unbelievable. The keys move so easily, no force required. Though it is still crisp and doesn't cause faulty key pressing. With all of the features, a GREAT purchase.
Cons: With all of the keys lit up, the flicker hurts my eyes because of my astigmatism. Don't know if it does that to anyone else though. I just have it low brightness w/ my wasd123456 keys and arrow keys lit up for reference. Works well.
Other Thoughts: So, I spilled a third of a liter of Dr Pepper on it the other day... used the nifty key puller, took off like 30 keys, and cleaned it off with a rag and some isopropyl. Not sticky, nothing damaged in the slightest. HUGE difference from my last generic keyboard. The whole frame is aluminum, and the keys are sealed and protected. You'd have to soak it in the sink to cause any kind of water damage. I could probably knock someone unconscious someone with his keyboard. Extremely durable!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stupidly powerful for price range
decent on power use
Works wonders w/ shadowplay and FXAA
Cons: ......................................? It's expensive, but definitely worth it. Does not fall short of price range expectations at all. Blows them out of the water.
Other Thoughts: Ok so I don't know if they assembled mine wrong or what, but when I got mine I started gaming on it. I have several programs monitoring temps and usage and whatnot... And my core clock was higher than it should be. Particularly, it was the exact same speeds as the Classified edition. though it was not labeled so, it did not have "classified" on the cooler, and I did not pay for it. But under heavy load, the boost kicks it up to 1202Mhz like the classified instead of the 1163. Not complaining at all. Max temp = 70c.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Extremely powerful card, especially for the price! I've had only the best from it, am now running Crysis 3 on max with 50 FPS.
Cons: Have always been worried about heat. Usually when core clock is maxed it runs about 71c. I have heard reviews of it running at 90c which is volitile for this card, and I have found an easy solution. The heatsink and fan are not very well made, so these should be replaced as soon as possible. Get new thermal compund in it, even if it is straight out of the box. #1 TIP------ REMOVE THE SHELL. I just did that last night, and the odd shape of the shell was reducing airflow. I instantly dropped from 71c max to around 64c. MUCH more comfortable at that temp.
Other Thoughts: Great card, runs hot.READ FULL REVIEW
