Corsair K70 Cherry MX Blue

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone here who owns this keyboard with the cherry mx blue switches can tell me if the keys are stiff or smooth? Do they loosen up overtime as you use it? I am asking this because lately I have been hearing many complaints regarding the blue switches on the K70.

From what I've read and heard, Cherry were (maybe are still) having some problem with their machinery that produces the Cherry MX Blue RGB switches, that's why it caused a huge scarcity of RGB Blue switches in the market.

Anyway, regarding the blue switches, yes, they do break in after a certain period of time. However, Cherry MX blue switches are known for their inconsistencies. I don't have a k70 with blues but I had 3 boards with Cherry Blues and they all have a different feeling. I used to have to have a Ducky Shine 3, Filco Convertible 2 and Razer BW. Ducky Shine felt the stiffest wheareas the Razer BW has the loosest Blues I have ever used. I prefer the blues on the Filco, it felt smooth and requires the perfect force to actuate them. This could be due to the different keycaps being used as well as different backplate of the keyboard.
