Product Expert keyboards

With the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Cherry MX Red, you have all the advantages of a K70 mechanical keyboard in combination with an updated design. In contrast to its predecessors, the K70 Mk.2 (Mark 2) has a larger and softer wrist rest, and the multimedia and control keys have been improved. This means you can play more comfortably and you can easily feel which multimedia key you're touching. The casing of the mechanical switches has also been improved so that it allows more light to pass through for your self-designed light pattern. This model has red mechanical switches, for a quick response time without a tactile bump or clear click.
