Save $60 and type away on the Corsair K70 Mk.2 RGB mechanical keyboard

The Corsair K70 MK.2 RGB mechanical keyboard (opens in new tab) is down to $99.99 with code JANSALE32 at Newegg. The code takes $60 off the keyboard's regular price. You can still find it going for its street price at other retailers like Amazon (opens in new tab). Although it has dropped this low in the past, we haven't seen a really good deal on the K70 for several months. Newegg's price drop comes with free shipping, but the sale ends in less than a day. Get on it while you can.

Like other K70 keyboards, this one is made with aircraft-grade anodized brushed aluminum. It's a very durable construction designed to last you forever. The design also includes a USB pass-through port that you can use to hook up additional USB devices like a mouse or a headset. That's super helpful, especially if you use a standing desk like I do. Most mice don't have very long cables, so it's nice to just plug it into the keyboard.

The backlighting features per-key dynamic multi-color RGB settings. You have nearly unlimited color options, and you can control the lights and brightness for each key individually. There are also macros you can customize, which allows you to execute complex commands with the press of a button. The keyboard has 8MB of onboard profile storage you can use to store multiple profiles for the lighting and macros. That's helpful if you play many different games and need to save different macros based on what you're playing at the time. Use Corsair's iCue software to program everything as much as you want.

The mechanical switches are Cherry MX Blue. They are super reliable, super accurate, and give you all the clicky tactile feedback you want. They are also super accurate and require very little actuation force for each keystroke.
