What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Corsair K70 Rapidfire RGB Backlit Mechanical Keyboard
  • The K70 is a full 104-key keyboard and it has the size and weight to show for it.
  • Also it’s full size with a number pad which is also a big plus.
  • It has a very premium feel as it's aluminum and has some weight to it.
  • Plenty of weight makes it feel secure. Rubber feet keep it in place well.
  • Because of its weight the keyboard doesn't slide around on my desk, there is no feeling of "cheapness" or of being flimsy.

What customers say about "Keys"
Corsair K70 Rapidfire RGB Backlit Mechanical Keyboard
  • Enlarged letter sizes to enhance lighting effects.
  • Since I do a lot of typing at night. It's nice to have backlighting. The lighting has 3 brightness levels.
  • I used to think backlighting on keyboards was pointless until I discovered this one. I just use the red one which is the cheapest because red lighting is the most gentle on the eyes, especially at night when you are most likely to actually need the backlighting.
  • The multimedia keys and pass-through USB are a big plus. The keys easily work with my iTunes and I have not had any problem using them.
  • The multimedia keys and volume scroll wheel are just the icing on the cake.
  • The keys stick out really far since there's no bezel around the edges of the keyboard or around the outside of the keys even. You can't pick the keyboard up to reposition it without pressing keys. The keys around the edges seem very susceptible to damage with no protective bezel.

What customers say about "Features"
Corsair K70 Rapidfire RGB Backlit Mechanical Keyboard
  • Comes with a removable wrist rest that tilts depending on the incline of the keyboard. It's very easy to snap on and off.
  • The keyboard has little pop-out tabs for supporting the keyboard to tilt it away from you if you're using the wrist rest, and towards you if you're not (though I highly recommend you do use it). They're strong, and they won't break off.
  • Software is available for Windows which allows you to animate they keyboard but on Linux you'll have to settle for the default red.
  • The palm rest was a must for me personnaly and it is very comfortable.
  • It also has a strong tilt forward that I do not like. setting the front feet up levels the keyboard, but makes it feel even taller.
  • The biggest issue is all the big keys such as space enter and shift are not balanced properly. Meaning if you press on one side of the key cap instead of on the center, the key tilt by a lot.
  • The only problem I got is when I used the software on windows 7, it became unusable, and since I got no free usb 3 on the PC in that moment, it was very horrible to use with compatibility for BIOS, it somewhat hanged (Well, also my PC was very old.).
