A year ago, Corsair entered the gaming peripherals market with the release of the K60 mechanical keyboard and M60 gaming mouse, which we reviewed some 13 months ago. The K60 was one of the first mechanical keyboards with Cherry MX mechanical switches to enter the consumer market and designed with FPS gaming in mind, thus Corsair also released the M60, a mouse with FPS-specific features, to match the K60. Today we are having a look at the upgraded versions of both peripherals; the K70 all-mechanical keyboard and the K65 gaming mouse. Let us see what Corsair actually improved and what remains unchanged.
