Today, you can pick up the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile mechanical gaming keyboard from Best Buy for $60 off. It seems like no modern gaming rig is complete without some eye-catching RGB peripherals, but simple LEDs aren't enough. Gamers need performance to back up their experience, and this keyboard aims to offer a lot, including dedicated media keys and low profile MX Speed Silver keycaps for great typing and gaming.

That said, we thought it was a little too expensive on release, and not the most comfortable keyboard, either. Still, this price cut makes the K70 RGB MK.2 Low profile a worthy contender, based on our review. The $89 (opens in new tab) price meets the specs somewhere in the middle to make what we consider a pretty enticing deal.

This is a wired keyboard, using a USB Type-A interface to connect. The built-in cable reaches 5.91-feet in length.

Low profile keys aren't for everyone, but our review noted that they made for unquestionably comfortable typing here, plus silent travel . For actuation, they use Cherry MX Speed Silver mechanical switches, so they're also good for gamers who want keys that match their speedy reflexes and don't mind short throw buttons. The K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile has 104 keys total including both a keypad and dedicated macro keys for programming custom functions.

Each key is individually backlit with an RGB LED. You can fully customize these LEDs  using Corsair's iCue application.

    I highly recommend this keyboard. The MX Speed Silver switches on this keyboard are amazing, perfect amount of force/tension for typing and it sounds great. The low profile is truly don't have to arch your hands up so high off of the wrist rest so it feels better for prolonged use. The wrist rest is adequate. I loved this keyboard so much I bought a 2nd one. I've tried about 100 different mech keyboards and have owned and seriously used about 20. Since I found this one I haven't purchased another keyboard. Have had it going on 2 years.
