Corsair Gaming K70 LUX RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Cherry MX RGB Red (CH-9101010-NA)

5 out of 5 eggs Great Cherry MX mechanical keyboard with nice extra features 08/28/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 LUX RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Cherry MX RGB Red (CH-9101010-NA)

Pros: The Corsair K70 LUX RGB is a gaming keyboard that is designed towards gamers, though it can find use in every other situation in which one needs a solid, rugged, dependable keyboard without audible (click) tactile feedback. The Red Cherry MX mechanical switches are the “lighter” switches (they actuate at 45 centinewtons (cN) of force) ; resulting in faster actuation with rapid hand movements (common in gaming). An awesome feature that’s so simplistic and often overlooked on keyboards is the font size of the keys; with the K70 LUX RGB you get a pretty large printed font on each key that is very easy to see.

Every single key on the K70 LUX RGB can be assigned a unique backlighting color (16.8 million color choices) through the use of the included Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) software. You can also have keys stay a static color, cycle through a range of colors at your choosing, cycle through colors in patterns (i.e. waves or ripples of color across the keyboard), or change colors and ripple/wave effects as you type. All of this is controlled through the CUE software. The included presets are nice and you can build custom effects to however you can imagine it. You can also dedicate any key(s) to macros. All of these setting are not just controlled through the CUE software but also sent and stored on the keyboard itself – yes, there is some built in memory on the keyboard to keep all your settings so you can unplug the keyboard, ship it to the other side of the planet, plug it into another computer and all your settings will remain – very cool!

The K70 LUX RGB performs exactly how a high quality gaming keyboard should. You get 100% anti-ghosting with 104 key rollover (if you can manage to press all keys simultaneously then all 104 presses would register). The housing is anodized brushed aluminum and sturdy and the detachable wrist rest is well placed and very comfortable. There are also some dedicated media controls in the upper corner of the keyboard – standard fare on keyboards today. There’s a volume roller key too that is smooth and works perfectly. The top of the keyboard features a pass0through USB port that you can hook up a mouse or wireless headset adapter, or whatever you want really. The spacebar and the FPS keys (WASD) have some extra texture to them so there’s more tactile feedback there and they’re easy to find without taking your eyes off the screen. The cable coming out of this thing is high quality and in a braided sleeve; a nice touch.

Cons: Wish it had some dedicated side or top keys that could be programed for specifics actions/macros. Not a con that will deduct an egg.

Other Thoughts: Works under Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10. Due to all the extra features between the keyboard and the CUE software there are 2 USB connectors coming out of this thing. If you’re connecting this keyboard to your computer using USB 2.0 you will have to plug in both; if you are using USB 3.0 then you only need to plug in one of them.

If you’re looking for a solid gaming keyboard that will perform when you need it to and has virtually unlimited options for customization then the K70 RGB is the keyboard to get! You won’t be disappointed - Corsair makes quality stuff and I cannot think of a time over the past 2 decades that I've been disappointed by them.
