Gaming keyboards are usually much better and expensive than regular ones. But they also offer superior performance, the sort needed when you are out to save the world.
The K70 is definitely better, but it is also stunning due to the red backlight that shines through the black buttons. These lights are fully customizable. There are dedicated multi-media keys too, and a rollover for volume adjustment. The black anodized brushed aluminum chassis also gives it a business-like look, though it also makes it a tad too heady to be used on the lap while resting back on a gaming chair.
The K70 uses cherry red mechanical key switches, so you don’t miss a stroke or hit while playing. There is 100 per cent transmission of signals. To ensure more accuracy your can replace the WASD and 1-6 keys with textured cherry red keys that are in the box. A similar texture is already there in the space key as well as the detachable wrist rest.
The keyboard needs two USB connectors for the pass through and that might be a bit of an issue if you are already rigged up with other accessories. Thankfully, there is an extra USB port behind the chassis which we recommend you use for the mouse. The two connectors also make the fabric-covered cables extra thick. But we can live with that for the sake of a few more kills.
