Corsair Gaming K70 RGB

Recommended Posts

I am somewhat hoping that as time goes on Corsair will release other types of Key-switches for their K RGB line-up.  They'd have me immediately if they had an MX Green or MX Clear option.  Preferably clear's as they're my favorite as of late, but - I  do hope they diversify their line-up of switch's or maybe even just have limited editions.

 

I really don't think that'll be worth it for either corsair or cherry. They had to develop these new switch housings with rgb leds and stuff, and I can't imagine that being cheap. So presumably they just picked the best selling switches, and clears and greens are unfortunately not part of that. Maybe if they turn out to be very succesfull they'll do a run with less popular switches, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

FYI if you buy a RGB K70 from Newegg, it has the old logo                   Old Logo Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823816022&cm_re=CH-9000063-NA-_-23-816-022-_-Product

lol @ modding guide.  Although the logo on keyboard is easy to remove, the mouse on the other hand......

 

On an unrelated note, Linus seems to be suffering from sun burns...

After watching the corsair legit mod video, I thought someone would have made a gif of linus cursing at us by now. :D

*sigh* guess its time to learn how to gif >_<

Bought mine day one from NCIX, old logo is much better and I'm happy mine has it :D

 

I am however underwhelmed at the keyboard due to the myriad of bugs.

I don't know what everyone is on about with the logo. It looks.. worse than the other one but good on them for trying something new, and like Linus said, how much was the old Vengence logo hated at first? People are just allergic to Change, that's all.

Personally I have preordered the K70 RGB with Browns in Australia for yes, a steep price, however it will be a huge improvement over my Razer BlackWidow.

Am I the only one here that doesn't care about looks? I honestly couldn't care less about a small logo but then again, people are entitled to their own views and I respect that.

Why are all keyboards $100+?

Is it just because cherrymx takes a lot of royalties?

 

edit: Is it just because I still have my keyboard from my old Compaq computer?

Cherry MX switches cost about $1 each at retail. Call them 25¢ each versus .01¢ each for rubber dome in bulk.

Also, your old Compaq keyboard might have very good switches itself. Go ask around on geekhack.org; you might be pleasantly surprised.
