The Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless, like many 60% gaming keyboards, presents something of a conundrum. It’s a perfectly good device, delivering excellent key switches and refined in-game performance. It’s also an extremely niche device, presenting touch typists with deal-breaking inconveniences, and charging a premium price for the privilege.
Taken on its own merits, there is admittedly a lot to like about the K70 Pro Mini Wireless. Corsair’s use of best-in-class Cherry MX key switches is still a big selling point, and a wireless mechanical gaming keyboard from a major manufacturer is always worth celebrating. You can customize the machine to your heart’s content, via both hardware and software.
On the other hand, the 60% design is simply a tough sell for many game genres, and it’s a bad fit for most productivity programs and everyday online tasks. At $180, it also costs more than most full-size wired gaming keyboards, to say nothing of its wired mini counterparts.
The K70 Pro Mini Wireless isn’t right for everyone, but if you’re already sold on the 60% design, it may be right for you. Read on for our full Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless review.
As the Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless’ name suggests, it’s a pretty small device. At less than 12 inches across and less than 5 inches wide, it’s hard to imagine a desk that wouldn’t have room for this device. Because it’s wireless via both USB dongle and Bluetooth, you can also put it just about anywhere; the keyboard doesn’t have to be especially close to your computer. The device’s USB wireless connectivity also makes it a good choice for PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
