Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - LEVELUP -

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.
