Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire Mechanical Gaming Keyboard review

 

Customizable and snappy, Corsair's K70 RGB Rapidfire keyboard gives gamers what they want.

Lightning-quick key presses ; Per-key RGB illumination ; USB pass-through port ; Profile customization ; Added keycap sets

Weirdly-textured palm rest ; No keycaps for lefties

Corsair’s K70 RGB Rapidfire mechanical keyboard lives up to its name. It’s highly responsive due to the use of Cherry MX RGB Speed switches, and is ideal for not only PC gamers who demand super-fast input, but typists who need a “sensitive” keyboard...

Corsair Vengeance K70 Keyboard Review

 

Mechanical keyboards are far from a new technology; they are decades old and some of the first mass produced personal computers came with mechanical keyboards back in the 1980's. However, due to their high production cost, they were soon replaced by...

Where the Vengeance K70 does not fare well at all is on versatility and software—there is none. There are no macro keys and no programming capabilities at all, leaving the Vengeance K70 without any advanced keyboard capabilities. With a price tag of...

Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review and Ratings

 

"Cherry MX Speed" mechanical switches are the difference here—to us, a minor one—but the Corsair formula of a sturdy, handsome gaming keyboard with excellent software remains a potent draw in this K70 variant.

Excellent mechanical key switches ; Sturdy, handsome design ; Software stores unlimited profiles ; Great macro editor ; Dedicated media controls ; Volume dial

Quite pricey ; New key switch barely differs in feel from Cherry MX Red ; A few counterintuitive layout choices

It's the Cherry MX Speed mechanical switches that are meant to sell Corsair's K70 RGB Rapidfire, with their 1.2mm actuation point. We can't speak to how professional tournament players will find them, but we didn't notice any difference while playing...

Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire Review — Silver Blaze

 

The K70 Rapidfire is not so much a brand-new keyboard as simply another option for the already-excellent Gaming K70 . All of the strengths of the existing keyboard are there: the gorgeous illumination, the authentic Cherry keys and the sensible design....

Authentic Cherry MX Speed switches ; Discrete media keys ; Colorful, vibrant lighting ; Ideal for e-sports

Expensive ; Complex software

The Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire may be the most full-featured e-sports keyboard on the market, with responsive switches and amazing lighting.
