Hello again readers, today we will take a look at the Corsair Vengeance K70 keyboard with Cherry Mx brown switches.
This is a mechanical keyboard what means that it uses mechanical switches instead of rubber dome switches like most keyboards. This particular version uses Cherry Mx brown switches, but it also exists with MX blue and MX Red switches, what is really cool so people can choose which one they prefer.
When I was still gaming on my laptop, I had no knowledge of mechanical keyboards I did not even know they existed. But when I was looking to build my first gaming machine I did some research to parts but because I used a laptop before I did not have any peripherals or screen, so I did some research about that too. And a lot of people recommended mechanical keyboards over regular rubber dome ones most people use. So I just decided to buy a Corsair Vengeance K60 with MX red switches. And I was really happy with it, now I am using the K70 to write this review and I do not think I ever want a rubber dome keyboard for my main pc again, I just love the clicky sounds and good responsiveness.
I want to thank Corsair for providing me with this sample of the Vengeance K70 with Cherry Mx Brown switches.
