K70 RGB MK.2
The Corsair keyboard range has been a staple of the PC gaming diet for many years now. PC gamers and enthusiasts around the world love the keyboards they produce, and every year, Corsair try to make them a little bit better too. The new K70 doesn’t offer much in the way of drastic improvement but does offer a few nice design tweaks to please newcomers to the range. I doubt original K70 owners will need an upgrade, but if your old one is wearing out, well, may as well get the MK.2
Equipped with a wide choice of Cherry MX switches, you’re certainly spoilt for choice. Many brands favour one, maybe two switches. However, the K70 RGB is available in five switches! Red, Brown, Blue, Speed, and Silent. All of those are Cherry switches of course. We’ve got the MX Red one to test today, it’s easily the most popular MX switch, and likely the one many of you are the most familiar with.
