Glitz and glamour are the Meta for the gamers of 2019. Consumers are more focused on how things look and tend to lose focus on how the products perform. Corsair has given us the opportunity to take a look at their new K70 Mk.2 Low Profile gaming keyboard.We have covered the earlier version of this keyboard so we decided to omit some of the features we felt were redundant for you viewers. Take a look at our previous review here. Were excited to see if Corsair is able to send great performance our way with all the beauty of RGB
Packaging and Contents
Yellow is one of those things that catches your eyes almost instantly. If we were to see this on the shelf we might just impulse buy on color alone. As you can see there are a few features which we will touch on later to explain where this keyboard made the distinct differences from its close relative. After opening the suitcase like packaging we see a classic proven way to keep this keyboard from getting damaged. Everything here has its own little area to be in and really feels organized to say the least.
We removed the packaging and found ourselves left with an almost identical keyboard to the Mk.2 minus the height of the new keys. We really love the way this keyboard looks and can see it without RGB enabled in a professional work environment if needed.
As you can see there is a data USB 2.0 port included here. This means you can charge your phone while gaming or even connect a Corsair mouse to avoid cable clutter. Corsair has also added thick braided cabling which makes cables look great (even if exposed to the naked eye).Next we moved on to the flip side of the MK.2 Low Profile. Underneath is a pleasantly symmetrical sight. Four rubber pads are located on each corner with plastic tabs to lift the front of the board for better ergonomics. A standard gaming wrist rest is also include with the additional parts.
Manuals and extra custom keys are one of those things that make gamers and consumers feel great about their purchase. We love that Corsair has added in extra keys for either MOBA or FPS games. Thumbs up!We just took a gander and gave our impressions of the out of the box feel. Were going to move into the design and specifications next to see if Corsair can fire on both cylinders with the K70 Mk.2 Low Profile.
