"Unless you were absolutely tied to the idea of low-profile keys, we'd probably opt for the big boy K70 over this. It's a fine keyboard with some smart features, but there's a lot not to like – and much of that is the fault of its switches."

"Taking an already-successful design and continuing to use already-great software, Corsair would have had to try pretty hard to make this a poor product. Thankfully, the swap to the new exclusive switches is a success and simply adds another choice for gamers looking to get their hands on one of the best keyboards available."

"Corsair's K70 Low Profile recreates a scissor switch's ergonomics with a new, slimmer Cherry MX mechanical switch. The new switch will be great for laptops, but it's pretty damn nice on desktops as well."

"As an alternative K70 MK.2 the Low Profile is a great keyboard, but just doesn't feel as premium as its sibling."

"Obwohl die Corsair K70 MK.2 Low Profile Rapidfire ein rundum solides und größtenteils gut verarbeitetes Gesamtpaket bietet, rechtfertigen selbst die exklusiven Low-Profile-Taster nicht den hohen Preis von 190 Euro."
