Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire, Cherry MX Speed switches, RGB LED Backlit keys, USB 2.0, Black *Factory Refurbished* is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product, Amazing price. (Speed switches are EXTREMELY easy to mistype with) Before this keyboard I've never had/experienced mechanical switches, but i can safely say now that i'm never going back to membrane. The value of this keyboard is around £150 *New* off websites like corsair, and scan sells it for almost half the price. The factory refurbished item it came in a excellent condition, everything working, and with the wrist rest. The packaging was of good quality also. Its been a good couple of weeks since I've owned this keyboard and I've mostly gotten used to typing on it but i'm still not quite there yet. Compared to my previous keyboard, The Corsair k70 was tiny, so i had to get used to the different spacing of the keys. one thing i will say is that i'm still accidentally clicking keys i don't mean to click. Since Cherry MX sped switches are linear, so theirs no pump for feedback, and since their speed switches, you only need to press the key about half way in for it to activate, make it EXTREMELY easy to accidentally press keys. There's no " oh i accidentally touched a key, i just barely pushed it tho so it shouldn't have activated" no, even if you just slightly press the key down it will most likely register. Speed switches are fine for those that are accurate at typing, for me its an annoyance but i'm slowly picking up speed and getting better. Just a warning

Rated 5 out of 5 by from its beautiful! but beware i brought the k70 rgb rapid fire refurbished. the first one i received initially overall looked beautiful. not a scratch or blemish on the chassis which was my main concern. when i started to experiment with lighting profiles i noticed one single led did not have a very bright red output and honesty looked terrible if displaying a solid colour. scan let me return it using the dpd pick up service. and i had a replacement within a couple days, Saturday delivery too! thank you scan. The replacement keyboard was even better! again no scratches or blemishes and a nicer feeling volume wheel. overall i am really happy with the saving and the quality considering its a refurb. and flawless customer service as always. just make sure you check your board using a lighting profile that cycles through the colour spectrum to make sure all your leds work identically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speed switches are excellant You would not believe this is a refurb keyboard. Excellent in every way .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrived in exactly the condition you'd want. My first time buying a refurbished item but to be honest I was delighted with the efficient delivery and mint condition item I received. I genuinely can't complain about a thing right now - most expensive keyboard I ever bought, but absolutely fantastic, the responsiveness of it is simply amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Decided to upgrade from my old and decrepit keyboard. The difference in quality is noticed immediately. The keys are so fast and satisfying to press. RGB looks slick, complements any setup. The keyboard as a whole feels very robust and has a nice weight to it. You would have no idea it was refurbishment unless someone told you. Can't fault the product apart from one tiny issue. There is faint, high pitched buzzing noise that comes from the keyboard when the LED's when they are on max brightness. Overall. Feels great. Looks great. Absolute bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product for anyone Bought this keyboard as I wanted to improve they old keyboard that I had previous, Gigabyte Aivia Osmium. The delivery was on time as expected from Scan and DPD and the delivery was handled well and the packaging of the item was secure and well packed. The item itself came in a general cardboard box with a corsair sticker slapped on the front which is fine for me and an easy way to hide what's inside if you are wanting to buy this for a Christmas present. Onto the keyboard itself, I was hesitant about buying a factory refurbished product as it has had a fault/issue previously on the item, however after taking the plunge and going against my constant thoughts of getting a faulty item, I was pleasantly surprised that it was like brand new, no faults, no scratches, all stands intact and the wrist rest slots on perfectly and feels great. The RGB effects on this keyboard are amazing. After taking the time to download the Corsair software so that I can adjust the different settings available, I was happy to find that it is incredibly easy to setup different styles of RGB and have a live demonstration of the lights as they are being changed in the software. The brightest level of RGB is very bright and is easy to see whatever pattern is set even in direct sunlight, I would prefer a brightness scroll wheel like I had on my Gigabyte keyboard however the 3 settings are well spaced out and the lowest level is still quite easy to see in direct sunlight. Another function on this keyboard that can be edited with the software is the windows lock key, located at the top right of the keyboard next to the brightness button, this button can be pressed to lock the windows key from being used (default setting) or it can also be set to lock the combinations: Alt + Tab, Alt + F4 & Shift + Tab. This is incredibly useful for a lot of games currently being played, especially PUBG where if you are sprinting and want to open your inventory you don't accidentally open up the steam overlay. Amazing little feature. I was a little annoyed that the K70 Cherry MX Blue Switches have been discontinued by Corsair so I had to either pay out my backside for a second hand one or look into getting a new type of switch (I love the clicky sound of the blues [But who doesn't?]) I has never really thought about getting something that wasn't a coloured switch, I.E Red, Blue, Brown, Etc. I had never heard of the Cherry MX Speed switches before so I went to do the research, turns out they are a super low actuation switch with a 1.2mm actuation point whereas the other MX switches have a 2mm actuation point, making typing with light presses that much easier and actually, I've found, makes it easier to type and puts a lot less strain on my fingers over the course of the day. My ONLY *personal* issue with this keyboard is that the F keys are a little bit too close to the top end of the keyboard and I find myself hitting the F11 and F12 key a lot while pressing the backspace key, which when you're using Chrome is a disaster. This issue I have can easily be fixed by just learning overtime that I do not need to put my finger so far up the keyboard to press the backspace key but after coming away from a keyboard that had the backspace key higher than this one, it'll take some time. The feel of this keyboard is amazing, my friends say they don't like the roughish pattern on the space bar but I think it feels amazing and makes it easier to distinguish where my hand is on the keyboard. This patterned style is also available for the QWEASDF keys and I would definitely state to use them if you plan on gaming with this keyboard, they make hand placement and even gameplay better overtime as you know where they keys are and you know you're on them to save from pressing the wrong buttons during those intense moments in gaming, It's also beneficial for those with sweaty fingers as it grips your fingers incredibly well while pushing down on them. TL;DR: Get this keyboard if you are looking at it. It is amazing, a steal for the price and a perfect present for someone or yourself. Hit me up with a question about anything to do with the keyboard and I can definitely get back to you with my opinion or answer to anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Ordered and within days it arrived. For refurbished the quality was incredible, just as I'd expect from new. For the price you pay it is well worth the buy

Questions & Answers

Is this the model with a double height enter key?

Images seem to show this having a tall enter key and 3 keys between it and the L key. However the part no on corsairs site shows this keyboard having a single height enter key with backslash above it.
Asked by: davesaat
Erm, the enter key is the same height as the rest. as seen on the image, no keys are at a awkward height then the others...

What was wrong (if anything) that made this have to be factory refurbished?

Before I purchase this keyboard I would like to know what (if) there was wrong with the keyboard in order to make it factory refurbished.
Asked by: CraigBeverley
You can never know whats was wrong with the exact keyboard that you end up getting. It could have been faulty, broken, or the person just didn't like it and sent it back. Either way, the keyboard was fixed to working condition and sold as *factory refurbished* on scan. I have personally bought this keyboard and will recommend doing so. Factory refurbishment on keyboards isn't much to worry about, my looks brand new and has no issues. i just payed half the price for it :) the question you want to be asking is whether you want speed switches. if you're not comfortable with typing and miss click occasionally then speed switches will just make that worse. For gaming their fine and don't matter but for typing you have to be very good and confident for these to not cause an inconvenience. Personally im still getting used to them and miss click a lot.

Hello, There is no manual provided with these keyboards. Any support or guides to use the software should be available from Corsairs support pages or forums. Regards,
