    I had one until one day I switched keyboards because my partner preferred to use a non-mechanical keyboard, and then tried to switch back to the K70 - this messed up the firmware on the keyboard and despite trying to re-flash it and spending hours troubleshooting it, it wouldn't register with the computer.

    I had to get a refund from PC Case Gear and swapped to a Ducky One - the keys are much better quality and sturdier than the K70, not all Cherry keys are made equal, apparently.

    The K70 comes with two cables, one for keystrokes and the other I think for lighting - a mate somehow managed to fry a graphics card when he plugged them in in the wrong order, and for that reason has avoided Corsair like the plague.

    TL;DR: Don't get the K70 because they've over-engineered the firmware, and done a bad job of it.

      I have owned a k70 for 2 years now, very solid and no issues whatsoever.
      Alot better than my old ducky/razer/g910

      I think maybe your issue was with your pc

      I'm pretty sure the second cable is for the USB pass through on the keyboard.

      I've had the k70 for over 2 years or so now and feel like it's a great keyboard, i am sure ducky is amazing too but for this price is too good to pass on.
      I have a similar issue when sometimes my computer will stop detecting the KB for whatever reason (or even when you switch usb ports) but it comes back once you re-plug.

      This is a pretty amazing story, how the hell do you fry a graphics card with a keyboard? More than likely your issues are with USB ports and have nothing to do with the keyboard. Also Cherry make the switches only, not the key-caps.

      all said, if you google "corsair k70 problems" or "corsair k70 issues", a whole bunch of stuff comes up, but mostly for earlier iterations of the k70. have corsair fixed the issues?

        there are many dumb people in the world that should not be allowed to own PCs or mobile phones ….AI hasn't caught up enough to help some.

    This or the K70?

      They're pretty much the same, just buy which one appeals to you better. At this price range there isn't too much difference.

      K70 for sure, it has media controls, back-lighting, USB pass-through and a palm rest. I'm personally not a fan of red back-lighting but it's a nice option to have.

    I can vouch for this keyboard (and the Cherry MX Brown switches), though I think the current iteration's font for the keys is uglier than that on the older model.

    how much can you dim the back lighting, I want to use it at work but not look light a disco with bright red. Wish they just illuminated the key cap character instead of also underneath the keys.

    •  

      There's a dedicated key for changing the brightness with 3 different levels. You can customize them in the software to set the opacity however you want, and with opacity at the lowest the red is almost invisible. Just make sure you click the button to "Save Static Lighting and Performance to Device".

      You can also turn the LEDs off.
