Pros: Haven't gotten it yet, but for $70 I'll try it out. I just wanted to write a post that might help some people with the storage issues
Cons: None yet, will update when it arrives
Other Thoughts: For people having issues with the storage, go into the disk cleanup and hit the "Cleanup System Files" button in the lower left (it's got the admin rights shield on it)
Tick the box marked "Previous Windows Installations" which will remove the leftover data from Win 8/8.1 and should free up a considerable amount of storage.
I know this isn't a review of the actual product but with it on sale, I'm just hoping to maybe help some new owners out when it arrives.
This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: I personally really prefer the MX Black switches for the extra weight in the keys, but Red is a close second (not a fan of the clicking on a partial press of the blue/browns). The design having the keys and switches completely above the aluminum backing rather than recessed makes cleaning a breeze. The included gaming keys are nice to keep your finger in place on WASD.
The lighting is plenty bright but can be dimmed to not be a nuisance. I like the option to program which specific keys you wish to have illuminated as well.
Cons: There's not as much customization as with other keyboards. I wouldn't mind having the option to have some lights brighter than others rather than just a select few on. I also wouldn't mind having a couple of USB ports rather than just a single pass-through.
Other Thoughts: I'm really liking this keyboard. I've got a pair of Thermaltake Meka G1s with Cherry Blacks and like the heavier weight, but I've ordered some .4mm O-ring bumpers and am looking forward to trying them.
Typing is great on this keyboard and I've actually brought it in to work to replace my standard old Dell keyboard. It's far more comfortable to use. Red switches are quiet compared to blues or brown, but they're much easier to bottom out generating a fair amount of noise that has not gone unnoticed by my coworkers. I'm fairly isolated in my office and I think part of the issue is that I'm accustomed to stiffer Black switches.
I really like this keyboard and if the budget doesn't allow for the RGB model with more lighting customization, this model will give you all the operation and still some customization with the backlighting to play with.
Pros: Work perfectly, no complaints, ferrite cores eliminated visible noise
Other Thoughts: Not a lot of use for VGA cables any more, but my setup has 2 machines hooked to an array of monitors that only have DVI and VGA inputs. Previous VGA cables were a bit too short to run nicely and introduced a lot of noise visible as minor jitters and lines of different brightness. These new cables are longer and have eliminated the noise.READ FULL REVIEW
