Small-sized keyboards have become popular in recent years. Corsair previously launched the K65 RGB MINI to reach 60% of the size of the market. Recently, it has turned its attention to the K70 series, which is loved by many players, and launched the new K70 RGB Pro MINI. WIRELESS, the standard 60% configuration gives 3-mode transmission, in which Bluetooth can store 3 devices for pairing, and also gives the design of the shaft body with poor thermal pull.

In addition to the three-mode design, which is a major feature, the RGB lighting effect is also not less. In addition to the basic button lighting, there are additional ambient ambient lights below to meet players’ pursuit of light pollution.

Among them, PC platforms, whether Windows or Mac, fully support three-mode, iCUE and The highest cycle rate is 8000 Hz, while home devices such as Playstation and Xbox do not support Bluetooth and iCUE, and the highest cycle rate is only 1000 Hz, while mobile devices such as Android and iOS only support Bluetooth.
The K70 RGB Pro MINI WIRELESS is not too different from the K65 RGB MINI in terms of appearance because 60% of the keyboards are extremely compact. The same bare shaft and metal top cover design, if you look closely, you will find that the taste is still familiar, but the bare shaft and metal top cover are on such an extremely small keyboard, and it feels that there is no visual advantage.
As mentioned above, there is a ring-shaped atmosphere light at the bottom. The lighting part is not particularly high and not too dazzling. The main purpose is to achieve the function of embellishment. After the bare shaft is lit, the visual effect of the shaft is really good. But if you compare it with the K65 RGB MINI white light guide baseplate, it will feel a little inferior.
What is more special is that a removable color cover is designed at the rear. The factory is black. At present, there are white styles available on the official website. Of course, players can also remove it for spray painting, mold sticking, and water transfer. Printing and other DIY, it depends on how players get creative.

And maybe some players have questions at this time, don’t all the three-mode peripherals use switches to control the mode switching? This time, it is special on K70 RGB Pro MINI WIRELESS. Bluetooth can record the information of 3 different devices, which is a common design in commercial wireless products. Physical switch, and 2.4G is connected to 3 Bluetooth devices, it will be switched by using the Fn shortcut key, Fn+CAPS is SLIPSTREAM 2.4G mode, FN+T/Y/G can be used in three different Bluetooth devices switch between. The battery life is officially stated to be 32 hours when the light effect is turned on, and up to 200 hours when the light effect is turned off. Basically, it can be used for a few days on a single charge.
K70 RGB Pro MINI WIRELESS keycaps are two-color PBT keycaps in rows. Similar to K65 RGB MINI, side engraving is used to indicate the Fn combination function. This time, it also has the double-layer Fn combination key function. Many, the basic presets of Fn combination keys are full. Players can set the required functions in the second layer of Fn2 combinations in iCUE. In terms of keys, it will be Fn2 (Fn+Menu)+any key.
Only Cherry MX red and silver shafts are currently available in the shaft part. It is a pity that there is no CORSAIR optical shaft this time, but the reason is because this time the shaft is hot-swappable, allowing players to change the shaft according to their own preferences. The body of the keyboard can be regarded as some extra fun for DIY keyboard players, and the design of the satellite shaft under the long keys is not bad in terms of feel, and there will be no obvious skew or difference in strength on both sides of the long keys.
At the bottom of the keyboard, you can see the unique glyph of the front anti-skid strip, directly from the left to the right, and the rear is more special. In addition to the rubber pad, there is also a support foot, which is a relatively rare design on 60% size keyboards. It is found that the CORSAIR K70 RGB Pro MINI WIRELESS does not have a large preset slope, which is similar to the general keyboard, and the support feet of this section can give you an additional angle choice. For those who are accustomed to keyboards Players with a higher inclination angle will be better to get started.
iCUE software is the control software for Corsair peripheral products. In the software, you can control lighting effects, key function settings and other functions. CORSAIR K70 RGB Pro MINI WIRELESS has many Fn combination keys, and you can see all presets on the key setting page. The table of Fn key combination allows DIY players to find the key combination function in the software after changing the keycap.
For CORSAIR products that support SLIPSTREAM wireless technology, the SLIPSTREAM receiver can be paired with other wireless products in addition to its own product, allowing players to use only one SLIPSTREAM receiver to connect to multiple wireless products at the same time.
