Design & Workmanship
At first glance, the keyboard looks very high-quality. Nothing rattles or wobbles and the K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile also has a pleasant weight. It is very similar to its big brother, the K70 RGB MK.2, because both keyboards come in full-size format with NumPad and are very similar in size. What is immediately noticeable, of course, is that the keyboard is much flatter than its big brother K70 RGB MK.2, to be exact exactly one centimeter.
The surface is made of brushed aluminium, which not only looks very chic, but also provides long durability and stability. The keycaps have been laser-printed with a rather large font, which is good for the readability and permeability of the RGB lighting. For users who want a bit more grip, there are alternative keycaps for FPS and MOBA games that can be easily replaced with the help of a keycap remover.
Compared to the normal K70 RGB MK.2, the low-profile version does not have separate cable ducts where the USB cable could be hidden. Instead, the 1.8 metre long, fabric-sheathed cable must be laid normally. In addition, the keyboard is equipped with USB pass-through.
