Corsair K70 RGB Pro keyboard review

The K70 RGB Pro is another variant of Corsair's K70 line-up of mechanical gaming keyboards with some added flair. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
That includes premium features like an 8,000Hz polling rate, standard bottom row layout, dedicated media keys, up to 20 layers of RGB lighting and more. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The lighting is certainly one selling point. With per-key RGB illumination and a nice glow too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
You can also layer 20 levels of RGB effects and create some seriously nice looking style. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
But if RGB gets on your nerves, then you can flick the switch into tournament mode and disable it all (as well as the macros and more). (image credit: Pocket-lint)
With 8MB onboard memory, you can also programme 50 different profiles with all sorts of settings include macros and more. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Naturally you get PBT doubleshot keycaps as standard, so they should look great for a long time. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
You can choose from a variety of key switch options, all Cherry MX variants. We tested with MX Red RGB. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
With 8,000Hz polling rate, this keyboard quickly registers your key presses. So latency isn't an issue. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
One downside is the stabilisers on the space bar and larger keys have an annoying ping when pressed too hard. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It comes with a detachable wrist rest that offers a surprising amount of comfort and is just held in place with magnets so is easy to remove on a whim. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The K70 RGB Pro is a great addition to the line-up, with all the classic things we've come to know and love from the series. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
