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 7.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality, Exceptional Price! This review isn't so much a review of the keyboard rather a review of the expericence of buying a refurb, I'm sure if you're reading this you'll already have a degrees worth of knowledge on this keyboard and are looking for that final push as to justifiying a buy. onto the purchase..may I say wow! This was an absolute steal! Firstly it came inside a large box (scans' I presume) and inside you'll get an unmarked box with a corsair sticker on it saying refurb and the model name. The keyboard came properly wrapped with accessories (keycap puller and rubberized keycaps for frequented gaming keys) The quality of the board itself was literally in brand new condition (I have not unboxed a brand new premium Corsair Keyboard before so I could be wrong) It had NO discernable suspicousness; like it had been a poorly repackaged RMA and boxed off to another individual. The keyboard and all keys functioned perfectly and there wasnt a single blemish, chip or scratch on the board to be found. It was in literally brand new condition for something that RRP's at £180+ this was an absolute steal! To conclude, expect that you will recive this keyboard exactly as you would new, minus the orignial packaging and still be provided with a 1yr warranty but the build quality of the board will very likely outlast that anyway. TLDR: Came in condition that was pretty much brand new, no issues, bargain steal. Thanks to Scan and Corsair, great work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from K70 Rapid-fire is a great keyboard but there''s one problem... The keyboard itself is a great keboard. The key quality is amaxing and feels great and comfortable on your fingers; especially if you're like me and was using a membrane keyboard previously. But the Z key broke on me within a week of use. I have no idea how it happened as I rarely use the Z key and I don't know if this is a fault of mine, corsair's or scan's but it was very dissapointing. On a brighter note, scan's return service with the DPD is great and email responses are quite speedy for a busy company so, thanks for that scan. :)

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. http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/k70-rgb-rapidfire-mechanical-gaming-keyboard-cherry-mx-speed-rgb-uk
Asked by: davesaat
The version I received has the tall enter key, however as these are factory refurbished I cannot state that the next one sold will have the same layout. Looking at it though, they keyboard linked on the Corsair website is the US version of this keyboard. The one Scan are selling is the UK variant, so I would strongly state that you would get the tall enter, short shift key version.
