About this deal

Please note that the APH Numeric Rating system is based off our proprietary guidelines in the Review Focus, and should not be compared to other sites. After a strong showing of AI advancements on their lifestyle products at the show, Samsung is now ready to introduce AI into their smartphone division with the newly announced Galaxy S24 series. So you’re either bottoming out or with practice, you learn where the actuation point is and get used to it. I’ve grown to really love these volume dial setups on keyboards, although I wish Corsair would find a way to add Windows 10 Dial functionality, similar to what’s found on the Roccat Horde AIMO.

has a host of attractive RGB effects on offer, and while Corsair's lighting here is maybe a couple of lumens dimmer than we've seen on some keyboards, it's still rather impressive. The per-key lighting is obviously fully customizable and the brightness is just about perfect (and it can be adjusted).

The lack of tactile feedback may put off some, but there’s a crispness to linear switches that is hard to match, and the low key travel coupled with a low actuation point/force leads to a very responsive feel both when typing and in games, although it certainly didn’t make me a better gamer - that's a lost cause.

The difference between US and UK pricing is a bit tough to swallow on this side of The Pond, but it isn't out of line with what competitors are charging for similar models, so the award stands.

The included—and detachable—wrist rest varies slightly from the original K70 with a rubberized grip that feels softer than the hard plastic of the previous model. Ocuk Limited trading as Overclockers UK is a credit broker, not a lender, and is Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. For maximal convenience, there are dedicated media keys including a volume scroller and an USB-passthrough to connect another device directly via the keyboard. It does come back to that key switch engineering, rather than its height –- squashy inputs, however accurate and quick they may be, can't quite pass that message back up your fingers to your brain--or at least to mine.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The replacement keycaps work extremely well and feel exactly the same as the included keycaps on the more expensive K95 Platinum.

We've also added new objective evaluations to the Typing Noise test, and we've simplified several tests and removed several others that were no longer relevant.
