The Corsair Gaming K70 RGB mechanical keyboard - yes, it is finally here! But after numerous production delays and with a market that is soon to be filled with competition, can the new "Corsair Gaming" line keep our attention?

thanks Nick!


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.1 Corinthians 13:4

I feel like getting one instead of a KB-460, just because it has RGB lighting and a Cherry MX Brown switch variation. Though spending $30 more on just those two things is discouraging that thought.

The logo is disgusting.

It looks like something I could make with Photoshop. I hope they didn't pay anyone to do it ;-)

Wow, personally I'm surprised at the amount of negative reception of the sub division launch. Personally, yes the logo isn't amazing, especially considering their youtube videos' outro, but I don't think it's that bad. Then again, I wasn't a fan of the Corsair logo, I just think it doesn't fit well into a gaming product (not everyone likes pirates or a pirate ship on their "gamer bling"), though I can see the original logo fitting computer components. Some people was expressing how they think the new logo made the products look "cheap", and I can't say I completely disagree. Yes, there's a stigma with gaming products being "cheap", but here I don't think it's completely the logo design. Looking at the keyboard, the logo up top looks like someone just printed a 10 cents sticker and slapped it on top. THAT looks cheap. The old shiny embedded logo looks better in that aspect.

 

However think of it this way, perhaps if they refined the logo, and devoted a little bit more resource in their product branding (as in integrating their gaming logo into the design), then I think it would be a success. It's not like the product is any worse, just a logo design that's highly subjective. Consider the product for what it is, as the logo is only the minimal proportion of it.

 

Honestly, I think Corsair was just saying to themselves, as much as they want to be elegant, and "classy" looking, the reality is that they aren't capturing enough of the "Gaming" consumers of the market (at least I assume they aren't) to justify their investment in the gaming peripherals category (it ain't cheap for exclusive partnerships).

There's reasons why Razer (who still ship some expensive products) and the likes of Turtle Beach, Astro, etc, are still capturing a significant portion of the market even though their products are priced rather high in certain categories. The reality is that many consumers are still justifying their purchases partially on aesthetics. I think Razer is a good example. Razer have clean, yet aggressive "Gamer" design, they stick to what they believe it's the looks "Gamers" want, and it's working. My girlfriend loves their products, even though she barely used any of their products. If she wasn't a picky music listener, her headphone would probably be Razer. Her mouse is Razer because she said she liked the looks (Razer Naga 2014). If Razer made keyboards with MX Black (or their equivalent), her present in my closet would be a Razer keyboard (I've been hinting that I'm getting her a mechanical keyboard, and she's been commenting how it's too bad that Razer doesn't have keyboards with MX Black). So to conclude, I think Corsair is just trying to capture that part of the "Gamer" audience. It's not their forte in designing aggressive looking peripherals, and it's evident in their existing products (Personal opinion I suppose). They've made an attempt and it didn't succeed, but I think base on what quality Corsair have been delivering over the years, I hope people can give them a chance in improving this division of theirs. I'm sure they can pull it off.

Opps I suppose that was way off topic. In terms of the keyboard alone, I think it's fine. The software is probably a bit buggy, but what software launch isn't. (I actually don't know how buggy it is. I'm waiting for the K95). It's actually quite functional from what I've seen, but tricky to those who aren't very good at tinkering using software or a programming like environment. The reason I say that is actually because I saw the software walk through from Kyle (Newegg/AwesomesauceNetwork). After I saw that, it's very apparent that the software isn't general consumer friendly. However I don't think Corsair said the software was "consumer" friendly. Yes it's suppose to be, in a way, but the nature of highly programmable lighting is not very consumer friendly without insane amount of work, and probably community effort. So give it a chance. 

 

For those who want an extensive (to a certain degree) but not enough for those who knows no concept of programming, here's the video I saw from Kyle (Newegg/AwesomesauceNetwork):
