Default You asked for it - you got it - Vengeance K70!

Official product teaser page:

http://www.corsair.com/k70

Our dreams have come true - the article I read hinted around at a possible April release at around $129.99 suggested list. Here's the article:

http://www.techpowerup.com/181737/Co...-Keyboard.html

All mechanical, in murdered-out black or traditional K-series colors, with a K90-style wristrest, K60-style extra keycaps, all Cherry MX keys, and adjustable backlighting.

As Al Pacino would say, "Hoo-Hah"!

The Vengeance K70 gaming keyboards are available in two color schemes: silver aluminum with blue backlighting, and anodized black with deep red backlighting.

I'm strongly considering switch over from my Logitech membrane to this keyboard. Only thing that I was kind of hoping for was an OD green option to match the C70 and M65. C'mon Corsair, the rest of your Vengeance line has a military green option, why not the keyboard?

I guess if it comes down to it, I can always disassemble it and powder coat, assuming the aluminum frame can actually be disassembled.

Only Cherry MX Red.

Why not? A lot of people would like to have brown switches with this keyboard (you will see it if you google). Or you can start a poll in this forum. So you can respond better to customer wishes

Agree. Red highlight is too agressive. Blue and green would be nice.

I'm happy with the Cherry MX reds on my K60 - the black on black w/red backlighting K70 will be perfect, when I can budget for it.

Thanks again, Corsair!

I'm not opposed to more switch types available for those that want them in the future - or more backlighting colors - but red backlighting is a very popular choice with other brands so it's an obvious choice for Corsair to make as their alternate from blue.

Red MX switches are considered pure gaming switches, and the Vengeance line is for gaming - so again I see why Corsair stuck with them for the K70.


"You can please some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time..."


More props for Corsair heading in the right direction!

Still only Reds? I'd love to know what market research Corsair followed that told them they were the most-wanted switch types in a mechanical keyboard.

Blues, please.
