abunda_amazon_reviews Good keyboard if you need sensitivity. Bad keyboard if you are a touch typist who touches the keys. This keyboard is very responsive. TOO responsive. Are you a touch typist who rests fingers lightly on the keys? You WILL type unwanted characters. The switches are too sensitive by far, and this will be the most expensively frustrating keyboard you will ever own. It's probably fine for hunt and peck typists who never touch keys until they stab at them with a single finger. The rest of you, avoid this unless you want to be so frustrated you will hammer it with your fists periodically. I bought it for a gaming trivia room where speed and accuracy are key. BIG MISTAKE. Again, you WILL press keys you don't mean to. Avoid at all costs if you are a trained typist.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 7, 2018;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Do you rest your fingers on the keyboard (like you're supposed to)? Don't buy this.;;L. Williams;;;This is a great keyboard so far the low profile red keys feel great (they sound and feel very very similar to regular cherry mx reds), it seems corsair fixed their spacebar issues finally which is great, the other keys with stabilizers almost feel like they have dampeners on them though, which for the enter key its weird but i got used to it and its not game changing. The RGB is great, much better than the older k70 rgb keyboards, no more weird reflections. If i had to rate RGB per company it would be Logitech, Razer, Corsair in that order, but for me RGB isnt the selling point id rather have better keys and reliability. Few things for constructive criticism, i wish the keys were perfectly flat on this low profile and not concave at all, but its much less concave than regular cherry mx keys so its not terrible, the back legs should have another tier on them so i can raise the keyboard a tiny bit more, get rid of this horrible cable and give us a moddular one on the back, i personally dont use the pass through id rather have the usb slot open on computer but if this is the main reason why we have this gigantic cable on the k70 id get rid of it, and lastly the retail price is too high on release, i know the k70s avg out around 129-139 but the initial retail cost of 169.99 is a ball buster. edit - the a key is starting to stick pulling me to the left in games, and im getting double registers on the 'e' key, not sure if its my specific board or a issue with the switches either way its unfortunate, the keys do feel nice though, and are really really fast to type on, my wpm jumped up 20 comparing to a mx blue switch keyboard;;Reviewed in the United States on November 11, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;great, improvements could be made though - cherry mx red low profiles are amazing;;Dave Smith;;;Been using the Corsair K70 for about a month now and here are my thoughts: 1. The quality of the keyboard is absolutely top notch. The solid metal construction, the wrist rest, the packaging, the RGB lighting. All amazing. I could easily see this keyboard lasting me the rest of my life. 2. I am not an expert on mechanical keys and frankly it had been so long since I had used one I didn't really even care. I almost saved the money and just bought Corsair's regular keyboard (non mechanical). However, after a month of using this I am glad I didn't. It actually took me some time to get used to the mechanical switches but now that I am, I love them. They make everything more enjoyable (typing and gaming) and certainly allow me to type faster. There is no doubt about it, they are superior. 3. The roller in the upper right hand corner of this keyboard is main volume control, as you probably guessed. Let me tell you: its freakin awesome, just brilliant. I use it constantly. I don't think I can ever go back to having volume keys/ buttons. 4. This keyboard includes two additional sets of "gaming" keys. Basically the A,S,D,Q,W and E keys but they are shaped differently and have a different texture so you can locate them more easily during gaming. I am not using them but it is a nice touch by Corsair. Someday I might throw them on just to try them. 5. Now the RGB: I have to say it is growing on me. I did not buy this for the RGB and even now I still have it set on just a solid red glow, which is what its been on since I got it. But I have also played Far Cry 5 and now the new Far Cry (New Dawn) with it and the native support in those two games is pretty awesome. Particularly New Dawn. The profile for that game is very nice and actually does add a level of interaction that you wouldn't expect. I have only played New Dawn for a total of about an hour so far and have already seen this keyboard do a bunch of cool stuff in game. For example, when you beat a mission, you get something like fireworks on the keyboard. When it is night in the game, the keyboard RGB is more subdued. The list goes on, the RBG lighting changes depending on what is happening in game and it really is cool, even to me. I also have a Corsair Pro series water cooler and gaming mouse but the RBG lighting on those just isn't nearly as intricate as this keyboard. I am now considering downloading some more profiles , or perhaps making one myself. Don't hesitate to buy this keyboard, you won't be disappointed with any aspect of it. And certainly if you are an RGB fan, you are sure to love it.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;If you don't like RGB, this keyboard just might change your mind;;LD;;;It's loads better than my previous k/m setup (which was a wireless Logitech $30 k/m combo). I've never used a Cherry MX Red mechanical keyboard, or any mechanical keyboard for that matter, but this thing is a dream for gaming and quick typing. I initially wanted this keyboard for a few features: red backlit keys, USB passthrough and media controls. But I found that this thing is also nicer by leaps and bounds in terms of usability. A few notes below: -for those of you familiar with mechanical keyboards, this is probably not a shock, but the linear MX Red key switches require very little force to register a key press, which makes gaming so much better. I used to play almost exclusively with a gamepad, because I hated k/m, but it turns out I just didn't have the right keyboard or mouse. The ease to register a key press does mean that you have to be careful while typing, as it's easier to make typos, but with some practice you can easily type quickly. -the key replacements for FPS (WASD) and MOBA (I don't remember because I don't play MOBAs) are a nice touch. They have contoured and textured surfaces so it's easy to feel by touch and makes gaming a bit more intuitive. Also, the space bar is textured as well. -the adjustable wrist rest is great for comfort and usability. -media controls work. -the red backlight looks dope and is great for using the keyboard at night; plus, with my red lit case, mouse and red themed monitor, the whole setup looks badass.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 14, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;A fantastic keyboard for gaming, especially at $90 (K70 LUX, red, mk1);;Scoot

The ease to register a key press does mean that you have to be careful while typing, as it's easier to make typos, but with some practice you can easily type quickly. -the key replacements for FPS (WASD) and MOBA (I don't remember because I don't play MOBAs) are a nice touch. They have contoured and textured surfaces so it's easy to feel by touch and makes gaming a bit more intuitive. Also, the space bar is textured as well. -the adjustable wrist rest is great for comfort and usability. -media controls work. -the red backlight looks dope and is great for using the keyboard at night; plus, with my red lit case, mouse and red themed monitor, the whole setup looks badass.
