When it comes to picking out a new gaming keyboard, it can be hard to decide between the Corsair k70 vs k95. Both keyboards are popular and there are many pros and cons to both. So lets take a look at these two and see which one is the better choice for you!
So the first decision you need to make when deciding on a new keyboard is whether to get a Cherry MX or a mechanical gaming keyboard. Cherry MXes is more responsive and light weight than mechanicals. They are also supposed to be easier to use, and provide a more professional and finished feel. Many people agree that the typing motion is smoother with a Cherry MX, however I personally prefer the smoother feel of a Mechanical.
The next decision you will have to make is whether to get a full set of keys, or just two regular keys and an extra key. A full set of keys gives you a better overall response and also helps prevent you from hitting the wrong key during game play. With a full set of keys you can hit all five keys simultaneously, which greatly helps when practicing. However having extra keys can open up your options to programing keys if you wish.
Then we have the weight of the keyboard. A larger keyboard makes it feel heavier and can put additional pressure on your wrists. Mechanical keyboards feel more substantial and are generally more comfortable. It is entirely personal preference as to which one you prefer, but my personal preference is for the weight.
Finally we have the cost of a Mechanical keyboard verses a cheaper plastic one. Obviously the more expensive mechanical will give you more keys to the program, and also better quality. The cheaper plastic ones tend to break easily and don’t provide as much benefit.
Overall I would say that the K70 is the best keyboard for gamers. There is not a lot of difference between the two, but definitely a big difference between them in price. If you are a serious gamer then you probably won’t care either way! But if you are only looking for a simple typing keyboard or gaming keyboard then the K70 is the one for you!
I would recommend the K70 over the K95 mainly because of its higher quality build. The K70 has a larger range of available key types (game modifiers included) which is very handy for gamers. If you are looking for a basic keyboard that is going to be used very little then the K70 is probably the best deal for you. But, if you are a very busy and serious gamer then I would strongly recommend the Corsair keyboard as it gives you everything you could ever want for the price.
So, there you have it. An analysis of the two most popular keyboard products currently on the market. Which one is best for you? Well, that all comes down to you! Make sure you do your own research and get the keyboard that suits your needs!
