As soon as you lift the K70 LUX RGB, you realize how sturdy and solid it actually is. Corsair has created a keyboard that gives a sense of maximum quality to the user at any given time. The keyboard is made of different plastic materials and there is also an aluminum faceplate, which is typical for Corsair keyboards. Apart from that the palm rest features a soft-touch surface. A closer look at the keycaps reveals they come with a slightly rough surface, which makes the keys feel very smooth and not sticky even if you should have sweaty hands. The K70 LUX RGB is one of the smaller mechanical keyboards we've had for testing so far but as we already mentioned, it still features a comfortable, detachable palm rest. The new Cherry MX RGB Red switches come with 4mm of total key travel, while the release point is reached after pressing the key down by 2mm. The feel is identical with your usual Cherry MX Red switches, which makes this keyboard suitable for fast typing as well as games in which a very quick resonse is of advantage.
The flip side of the K70 LUX RGB is not really special. There is an even surface made from plastic and in each corner there is a stand-off, which in order to change the keyboard angle. Apart from that there are no rubber feet with this keyboard. We actually like it when the keyboard is not glued to the desktop, since we're the type of gamers/typists who like to move the keyboard around every now and then..
