The Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless is a really compact gadget, as its name indicates. It is not easy to think of a desk where this gadget doesn’t fit, since it’s less than 5 inches wide and fewer than 12 inches across. You can place the keyboard nearly anywhere as it’s wireless thanks to a USB dongle and Bluetooth; it does not must be near your computer. The device is an acceptable alternative to PlayStation and Xbox consoles because of its USB wireless connectivity.
At least the K70 Pro Mini Wireless is in fair condition. Stunning RGB lighting shines through high-profile keycaps and ample space between white switches and the black chassis. The keyboard can be propped up on two extended legs or left flat. The back has a power button and a USB-C charging port. Corsair usually creates fantastic keyboards, and the K70 Pro Mini Wireless is no exception.
The Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless: Keys
The indisputable fact that most Corsair keyboards have genuine Cherry MX switches rather than cheap imitations separates them from the competition. For example, the Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless is available with either Cherry MX Red or Cherry MX Speed switches, and both are appropriate. MX Speed switches were used in our review model, with shorter actuation lengths and key travel. However, the Red and Speed switches are linear, pleasant and silent.
The only significant drawback is that a 60% design eliminates keys that gamers and typists can take for granted. At first glance, having access to the letter and number keys may seem enough for gaming and productivity. However, function keys are significant in massively multiplayer online (MMO) games, but arrow keys are still needed for document navigation. The Delete key can be used to browse the web and type messages for in-game chat. Ultimately you can learn to use the shortcuts, but it won’t ever seem natural.
Performance of the Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless
While the Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless is not ideal for most productivity activities, its compact size is optimal for specific genres of gaming. While the Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless is not ideal for most productivity activities, its compact size is optimal for specific genres of gaming.
Whether the K70 Pro Mini Wireless is better or worse than a full-size keyboard is determined by whether you focus on a few keys during gaming or spread functions across the 104-key range. I lost most function, arrow, and separate media keys, even though no genre was playable.
The Corsair K70 Pro Compact Wireless, like other high-end mini mechanical keyboards, has a conflict. The device excels at what it does, with high-level key switches and diverse customization options. However, it is also a hard sell for most gamers and typists. The 60% design may seem limiting by nature, and the high price of the keyboard doesn’t make it more approachable.
If you aren’t sold on the 60% layout, I suggest the Corsair K65 RGB Mini wires, which lets you experiment with the format at a significantly lower cost.
