Corsair K70 RGB Pro Mini Wireless Keyboard Packaging

Our keyboard arrived in a cardboard box with an image of the product, its name, and company branding in front. In this area, you will also find some key features, while the back has additional information related to the board. 

We also looked inside the box for this Corsair K70 RGB Pro Mini Wireless Keyboard Review. Aside from the K70 RGB Pro Mini, you will also find other inclusions like the SLIPSTREAM wireless adapter. There is a braided USB-C cable, spacebar keycap, the ESC keycap with the Corsair logo, and a keycap puller.

Corsair K70 RGB Pro Mini Wireless Keyboard Review – Design and Functionality

The design and functions of the keyboard are essential to know. So, we are including these details in our Corsair K70 RGB Pro Mini Wireless Keyboard Review. 

As its name suggests, the K70 RGB Pro Mini is a small and compact product. Measuring less than 12-inches across and 5-inches wide, the keyboard will provide more space on your desk for other things. 

You may place the keyboard almost anywhere since it is wireless and uses a USB dongle/Bluetooth. That means you do not need to position it close to your computer.

Its USB wireless connectivity also makes it an option for the Xbox and Playstation.  

Since the keyboard is a 60% type, you will not have a few keys. So if you have not used one yet, you need to keep these in mind. 

These keyboards are one of the smallest, so they do not have a keypad. Aside from the keypad, it does not have arrow, function, or navigation keys. Additionally, it does not even have a discrete “delete” key.

So if you want or need any of these features, you will need to utilise two-key shortcuts instead.  

Double-shot PBT Keycaps 

We like its double-shot matte-black PBT keycaps since it gives the keyboard a premium look while preventing wear and tear. It is also essential to consider the different functions assigned to each key. 

Beyond that, the keyboard looks great.

Its stunning RGBs shine through since there is a lot of space between its switches and chassis, plus its high-profile keycaps.

USB Port and Adjustable Feet

The accented section at the top of the keyboard features the USB-C port. Aside from this, you will see a power button and a wireless dongle that you can detach from the keyboard. 

Switching to its grey belly, you will see two adjustable feet and three rubber grips that hold the keyboard in place.

The keyboard will stay put even during intense gaming sessions.

If you want some elevation, you can prop the K70 RGB Pro Mini up with its two expandable feet.

Hands-on with the Corsair K70 RGB Pro Mini Wireless Keyboard 

We will share our hands-on experience with the product in our Corsair K70 RGB Pro Mini Wireless Keyboard Review.

First, we will discuss the settings you can expect when using iCUE.

iCUE is where you can access all customisation options for the K70 RGB Pro Mini. It lets you customise keys across 50 profiles and the Performance mode to lock specific shortcuts when gaming. Aside from that, you can personalise the RGB lighting of the keyboard with different colours and effects.

iCUE has a user-friendly interface that makes navigating through it easy. Here, you can manage other iCUE-compatible products connected to your system. Plus, you can monitor your motherboard, CPU, and GPU temperatures.

For the K70 RGB Pro Mini, iCUE has a special mode dedicated to Sony PS4 and PS5. It enables a shortcut that reduces key rollover for reduced accidental key presses.

We tested the K70 RGB Pro Mini for gaming and office tasks to find out how it works. 

Because of its design, the keyboard was not suitable for productivity tasks and regular typing. It was slightly inconvenient for typing since it had no arrow keys and various functions were not in separate keys. The keyboard was excellent for games, even with its size.

We used the keyboard to play various game titles and genres, and some games were more enjoyable with this keyboard. It worked perfectly with FPS. It allowed us to swap weapons swiftly, and the compact size helped us focus on navigating the game.

When we played MMO, it also worked well for playing. However, we would prefer more buttons for added convenience since chatting is essential in these games.

Overall, we had an impressive user experience with the K70 RGB Pro. It has fewer keys than an average keyboard, but we appreciate that all the commands are still available.
