How are these compared to K70? I know they went for $59+taxes and shipping last week.
For $10 extra, am contemplating if this strafe is good or the K70 is better.
Meanwhile let me google the differences and report back if I find anything.

strafe is much worse than k70. typing feels terrible.

Both keyboard use same switches. The build of the keyboard and features (mute buttons, function buttons, volume scroll etc) could be different. How can same switches range from terrible to amazeballs? the only thing that could be inconvenient is different shape key caps. Please elaborate your statement.

Most of these keyboard fanatics have nothing to do but feel eroticism through their fingers. What a bunch of idiots. It feels the same. Its practically the same shit. I have 3 or 4 mechanical keyboards in the house. All of them have similar value. Even ranging from $70 name brand ones to $30 no name brand ones. Some just have more "click" to them and forceback on the fingers. Whoever tells you typing on a keyboard feels like amazeballs hasn't gone out of their basement.

The Strafe lacks the wrist rest and I believe the volume knob and keyboard controls of the K70

hahahahhahahhaha I have the Strafe RGB with Silent switches and this keyboard is the most amazing thing to type on. Incessantly smooth and the RGB lighting is fantastic on mine, I know this post is for refurbed RED LED, but I fail to see how the exact same keycaps and switches perform worse just because it's a Strafe. Get one, you won't be dissapointed.

In fact one of the most irritating things about keyboards in general is that the LED lights keep dying after a few months. Like WTF, what is the point of putting LED lights then or at least make it so that it can be replaced easily by the consumer and not having to know soldering skillz to replace a dead one. At this point I'd PREFER getting a keyboard without any LED backlight just so that I don't have to care about it dying on me after awhile.

This is one of the most irritating things about keyboards and mechanical keyboards in general. Having to worry about dying LED lights. There is literally nothing worse in ruining your experience of liking your keyboard, but to look down and find dead LED keys randomly on your keyboard.

I've been using my strafe RGB for nearly a year, and the LED lights are perfect.

Well I have a corsair K95 and this keyboard has just started to have dead LEDs after a couple of months. Lets just say I'm done with Corsair. Other less brands that I have in my house has LEDs still going pretty strong, with no dead LEDs. I think its an epidemic with just Corsair keyboards.

I don't need to elaborate, go to bestbuy and try it. The silent switch is really disappointing. and they are always on sell. I got new RGB model for $80 a year ago and return it the second day.
For those who can not tell difference between keyboard, you guys should go for the cheapest ones.

Then send it in for a return? The K95 has a two year warranty. I sent in my blue LED K70 with red switches after the LEDs started dying after a year, and they sent me a brand new red led with brown switches model (they only had red switches when it first released so i asked for brown). This one has been going strong for almost three years now.
