Corsair K70 RGB keyboard debuts with per-key backlighting for $170

Wes Fenlon at

Corsair has been making gaming gear for years: mice and keyboards, headsets and mousepads. Now they’re uniting their various gaming lines under one Corsair Gaming banner, and to mark the occasion they’re updating one of our favorite gaming keyboards, the Corsair Vengance K70. The new Corsair Gaming K70 RGB is still a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches, but it replaces the old red LEDs with full-color RGB backlighting under every key. We tested out the K70 RGB with Corsair’s new customization software to see how flashy the lighting can get.

Look below for a video of the RGB backlighting in action.

Corsair Vengeance K70 review

Dave James at

When it comes to gaming keyboards, it’s all about the mechanical switch keys. Corsair have used them to make some seriously good boards but the new Vengeance K70 is my current favourite. I've been using its keenly admired predecessor, the Vengeance K60, as my main workhorse since the range launched in spring 2012. That wasn't without its problems, but Corsair have listened, and polished up almost all of those faults in this pricey but excellent addition to the series.


Choose your own switch keyboards from QPAD

It's a dilemma we've all faced and I'm sure is familiar to all: 'Which Cherry MX switches should I get in my next keyboard, red or blue?'* Swedish peripheral designer QPAD understands the agony of being forced into the wrong decision for your fingertips, and is giving you the freedom to choose your own key types next time you buy a 'board.
