Featuring a fully mechanical construction, backlit keys and a patented Cherry MX Red key formation; the Corsair Vengeance K70 keyboard has redefined the art of precision gaming for gamers of all skill levels. The Corsair Vengeance K70 isn’t just a keyboard however; it’s a masterpiece of engineering.
The Features of the Corsair Vengeance K70
Boasting a full key matrix that utilises anti-ghosting technology, there is now a 0.00% chance of anything less than a perfect signal quality. This technology goes hand in hand with the full key rollover potential that ensures complete accuracy whether you prefer to tap or hammer your keys.
Rather than opting for a heavier construction, the Corsair Vengeance K70 has been made using a lightweight aluminium alloy, and the frame is more than capable of withstanding all but the most intense of pressure. Its lightweight design isn’t just great for hours of game play – it’s easy to transport and can be stored with minimal fuss when it’s not in use.
The Aesthetics of the Corsair Vengeance K70 Keyboard
– Contoured WSAD 1-6 keys in the patented Cherry MX Red colour scheme
– Individual key back-lighting options (in a range of colors and shades)
– Lightly brushed aluminium chassis
– Gentle touch wrist-rest as standard
As if the sheer beauty of this keyboard wasn’t enough; Corsair have gone the extra mile to manufacture a keyboard that is as effective when in use as it is beautiful. The keyboard comes complete with a spare USB slot that is fully compatible with all USB devices, but excels when used with a Corsair mouse or headset. The K70 also features a 0% delay between key presses (via the key rollover USB technology). This means that simultaneous key presses will be registered so that even the fastest gamers won’t suffer with delays.
The keyboard is also fully functional when it comes to activities outside of gaming. It has built-in multimedia control buttons that make playing videos, music and everything in between as simple as blinking. These buttons can also be customized to suit the user’s specific preference, and spare buttons can be assigned for internet browsing and other application processes.
In order for the keyboard to be used to its maximum potential, 35mb of storage is required on the hard drive. The keyboard is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 and relevant drivers are included within the packaging (via CD). At least one 2.0 USB port is required for use, although two USB ports are required for USB pass-through features.
As far as gaming keyboards go, the Corsair Vengeance K70 goes above and beyond the call of duty. It’s lightweight enough to stay out of the way, but sturdy enough to take a bit of punishment. The aesthetics are easily on par with several high-end keyboards, and the customization potential is almost limitless. The K70 isn’t just a fantastic gaming keyboard; it’s a fully functional powerhouse of technology that can tackle tasks such as word processing, music playing and internet browsing with ease – with plenty more power to dedicate to high-powered gaming in the most extreme of environments.
Considering all of the above and then comparing it with other similar models with the same price tag; the K70 surpasses its rivals with ease and stands a head and shoulders above the competition.
