Today we’re gonna be taking a look at a new keyboard from Corsair DK 70 mark 2 low profile and I am gonna be doing a giveaway for one of these as well but of all the details on that at the end of the video for now let’s go ahead and just check this thing out so as the name would suggest the Corsair k70 mark – low profile is essentially just the version of the k70 mark – with a little bit smaller form factor but all of the other features and everything are pretty much the same now. Let’s discuss the NEW Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile Review in details.
NEW Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile Review
To be exact this keyboard is about 25% slimmer than the regular k70 mark tube but aside from that it still has all the great features we know and love from the mark – like the soft touch wrist rest it’s got the USB pass-through you’ve got those dedicated media keys with the textured volume scroll wheel it also has that nice beautiful brushed aluminum back plate from the K 70 line but the main differences are going to be that it uses a new corsair exclusive cherry MX speed low profile switch we’ll get into the details on that here in just a little bit as well as these nice low profile key caps there are of course a couple of differences in the features as well one of the big differences is that the regular K 70 mark 2 does have that cable routing management system underneath the board the low profile version of the keyboard doesn’t have that and I think the main reason is probably just due to the slim design of the actual casing of the keyboard itself there just wasn’t enough room to have the cutouts there or at least that’s my theory so as you guys can tell there’s pretty much identical keyboards up until this point but the main thing that makes it the low profile is the new cherry MX speed low profile switches now these switches have a 45 grams actuation force a one millimeter total travel which is a little bit faster than the regular cherry MX speed and a 3.2 millimeter total travel as well as that 50 million keystroke guarantee that you get from Cherry but the way that these switches perform is actually much better than the regular cherry MX speed switch the main reason I say that is because if I type on this cherry MX speed board that I have in front of me and push down and wiggle on the keys there’s just a little bit of key wobble now Cherry MX is actually pretty good about not having a lot of key wobble in there switches but then when you move over to the low profile switch and just press that key down and move it there’s virtually zero key wobble these are ultra ultra solid switches another big improvement over the regular k7e mark – when it comes to using these switches is they finally eliminated that horrible space bar rattle that has been kind of plugging the k95 platinum and the K 70 line for a while and when you push down on that it’s not nearly as bad there’s still a little bit but compared to this much much better so really really happy to have that especially with just how great and fluid and solid feeling the typing experience on this keyboard is and I would almost liken it to typing on a Topor keyboard which is kind of known for having a really nice typing experience and when coming over onto these keys it’s the closest feeling to a topor board that I felt just you guys can kind of get a better idea of how this keyboard sounds I am gonna do a quick back to back sound test of the regular K 70 mark 2 with the Cherry MX speeds and the K 70 mark to low profile with the Cherry MX speed low profile switches in terms of the lighting it’s pretty much going to be a very comparable experience to any other of Corsairs keyboards you’ve got that same big bold font on the keys that you do on any other Corsair keyboard and much like all of the other k70 mark 2’s you do have that 2 zone illuminated logo as well one thing though is that these low-profile switches I feel like actually have a little bit better light permeability than the regular Cherry MX which bodies do the main reason is just with them being a little bit slimmer and that LED is a little bit higher the light tends to kind of go around the switch and just kind of gives it a little bit more full luminescence than the regular ones do and I think paired with that low-profile key caps as well just gives it a really cool ambience and kind of helps the board pop just a little bit more so overall as you guys can tell both of these keyboards are pretty much identical with those couple of changes that I mentioned main ones being again the lack of the cable routing management system on the low profile and the addition of those low profile keys with the reduction of the spacebar rattle now of course it is kind of just another option on the k70 line which is not a bad thing because the k70 line of keyboards has been one of my most recommended keyboard lines out there pretty much since the original k70 RGB came out and I’m glad that the low-profile version is going to keep that tradition going with being another solid keyboard from Corsair now both of these keyboards so really it does just come up to personal preference but like the original k70 mark 2 giving you five switch types and also having the addition of having the special edition with the pbt key caps like this one here you see and now having a low-profile version it’s just good to see that Corsair is not just sticking with one design and just kind of riding that out they’re still trying to push in different directions and give us something new so really nice to see but if you guys want to see a little bit more in-depth review on this keyboard I’m gonna link down below to my full length review of the k70 mark 2 because I don’t want to make this video too long and drawn-out when I’ve already pretty much covered everything that goes into these keyboards – those two features we talked about that makes it low-profile well that’s it for this review.
In this NEW Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile Review ( Updated ), I will explain the advantages and disadvantages of this keyboard to help you make a better decision.
