This Corsair K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard uses Cherry MX Red mechanical switches with red LED backlighting that can be individually switched on or off. Lighting profiles can then be saved onto the keyboard's built-in memory. This wired USB keyboard includes a set of contoured, textured keycaps for the W, A, S, and D keys as well as the 1 to 6 keys so you can find them faster with less chance of your fingers missing their mark. Furthermore, this keyboard supports anti-ghosting with 104-key rollover on USB to ensure accuracy with each keystroke.
This keyboard connects to your Windows computer via USB cable and has an integrated USB port for connecting an optional mouse, headset, or USB device. Additionally, it has a durable black anodized brushed aluminum chassis with a redesigned sails logo and includes a soft-touch wrist rest that can be removed.
Cherry MX Red Mechanical Key Switches
Mechanical keyboards utilize a different type of key switch technology for a more durable and unique typing experience. The Cherry MX Red switch has an actuation force of 45g and features a linear travel with no audible or tactile click. This can be beneficial for users who don't need the tactility of other switches. Additionally, with a close actuation and release point, Cherry MX Red switches allow for easier double-tapping. Unlike Cherry MX Blue switches, these do not have an audible click mechanism, allowing for a quieter operation. Noise generated from this keyboard will be from either the key springing back into place or "bottoming out" – pressing the key all the way to the bottom so that it makes contact with the back plate.
Key-by-Key Customizable Backlighting
Deep red LEDs with adjustable brightness and key-by-key programmability light up just the keys you need. You can program select keys to light up based upon which game is running. The profiles are saved directly to the keyboard's onboard memory so you can take your lighting profiles with you.
Anti-Ghosting with 104 Full Key Rollover on USB
Full key rollover accurately logs every keystroke even when you press multiple keys at the same time, while anti-ghosting prevents incorrect keys from registering.
Dedicated multimedia controls allow you to play music and videos. The keyboard provides controls for play, stop, pause, skip, and volume adjustments.
Contoured, Textured WASD and 1-6 Keycaps
Keep your focus on your game with contoured, textured WASD and 1-6 keycaps. An extra set of standard typing keycaps and a keycap removal tool are included for general typing comfort.
The soft-touch wrist rest gives your wrists a break during long gaming sessions. The wrist rest is also detachable.
An extra USB connector is provided so you can attach an optional mouse, headset, or USB device.
The K70 lets you disable the Windows key on the keyboard, preventing gaming interruptions if the key is accidentally pressed.
