Corsair K70 vs Fnatic STREAK

Barnack
 Share

Hi,

i finally shrinked my keyboards options to the two on the title.

Both have the "all reprogrammable keys" feature i was looking for way more than fancy lights and loud clicks.

Both lack additional macro keys i could get with a way too costy K90

Both seem to have quality materials (metal top plate in both)

Both come available with ISO layout.

Both have a fancy volume wheel i'll likely never use xD

None comes with cherry silent switches :(

Both come with brown switches (not silent but can do, i'll spam o-rings eventually)

 

Spoiler

yeah i'm a huge fan of membrane sound&feel but membrane keyboards with fully programmable keys don't seem to exist (except razer cynosa, but people seems to not suggest razer)

 

The K70 has the dedicated media keys the STREAK lacks of

The STREAK has the usb passthrough the K70 lacks of

 

Both cost 120-130€

so… based on what should i decide? Any information to make any of the two my choice?

Where are you located at and which model of K70 are you looking at?

 

K70 RGB LUX and MK.2 do have Cherry MX Silent switches available in most regions.  We implemented the USB passthrough on the K70 LUX, and carried in on to the newer MK.2 keyboards as well.  Sounds like the K70 is a winner in all categories based on what you're looking for.  Let me know if you have additional questions.

i'm from italy, looking for iso italian layout.

Unfortunately i just noticed the RGB and MK2 cost 160+€ on amazon, the one i saw for 120-130€ was the static colors one.
And it doesn't come with (or at least isn't available with) cherry silent switches. (K70 LUX (non rgb)).

 

So between the 120-130€ models they're on par except for full rgb for the fnatic vs full r for the corsair

 

the 160€ price range would give me everything on par with silent switches over the other keyboard, which would be cool, but it's out of my range

Correct, the Cherry MX Silent switches will only be available on the RGB version of the K70.  Single color K70 LUX I believe only comes in speed, red, and brown switches.  If you're still on the fence and still have more questions about the K70 LUX, let me know and I'll be happy to answer them for you.
