CORSAIR K70 RGB TKL CHAMPION SERIES OPTICAL-MECHANICAL GAMING KEYBOARD

The Corsair K70 RGB TKL Champion Series Optical-Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a long name for a keyboard, so we'll call it the K70 OPX from now on to save my wrists from carpal tunnel.

This board isn't new; it's an updated version of one that was released in 2021, but with Corsair's new OPX Optical-Mechanical switches.

These are the same switches that we use on our favourite gaming keyboard, the Corsair K100.

The K70 OPX costs $10 more than other K70 variants with more pedestrian Cherry MX switches, retailing for $150.

The type of switches you prefer will determine whether or not that premium is worthwhile to you. The OPX switch is essentially a linear switch that is designed for speed and fluidity.

It has a one-millimeter actuation distance and no debounce. Cherry MX Reds, for example, actuate at around 1.8mm.

 This simply means that they are extremely fast, smooth, and clacky, but not in an offensive way.

 Corsair claims that the new switch is far more reliable, claiming that it will last 150 million keystrokes before failing or degrading. That's impressive in a figurative sense

What matters most, however, is that they are extremely enjoyable to use while gaming.
