Corsair Vengeance K60 Gaming Keyboard Review

 

CORSAIR IS aiming at the very top of the gaming keyboard market with its Vengeance line—two boards with exquisite build quality and luxury price tags. The FPS-oriented K60 may be the cheaper of the two, but it still comes in at more than $100 MSRP, and...

Corsair Vengeance K60

 

The Corsair Vengeance K60 keyboard is a weapon built to a gamer's specs, with a left-handed wrist rest and 10 swappable sculpted keys.

Great typing experience with springy mechanical switches. Swappable keycaps. Built-in media controls and volume knob. USB pass-through. Detachable palm-rest

Palm rest is left-hand only. Silicone dome switches used for some keys

Corsair Vengeance K60 FPS Gaming Keyboard Review →

 

Corsair Vengeance K60 is a swell mechanical keyboard that knows its target audience well, but could stand to use a firmware fix and ditch the membrane dome-switched function keys.

Driverless ; Contoured WASD, 1-6 keycaps as swaps ; Cherry MX mechanical keyswitches ; Dedicated media controls ; Smooth volume roller ; Optional reverse tilt, gaming wrist rest ; Windows key lockout ; Standard 104-key layout ; Rear-mounted USB 2.0 port

Function keys are membrane dome-switched ; Current firmware results in occasional repeating key ; No backlighting ; USB port is single-port passthrough ; Replacement 1-6 keycaps lack special characters ; Only available with Cherry MX Red keyswitches

Corsair Vengeance K60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

The Vengeance K60 FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is one of Corsair's latest introductions. This keyboard is a rare cherry MX red keyboard (similar to cherry MX blacks), offering very light resistance to key presses, and no tactile "click" during...

Cherry MX Red switches for light resistance and high spam-ability ; 20 key rollover ; Contoured and textured FPS keys which can be swapped with traditional keys ; Key extraction tool included ; USB port available ; Slick design

Wrist rest may feel slightly odd ; Cherry MX Red switches not for everyone, typing experience mixed ; Very narrow feature set

The Vengeance K60's Cherry Red switches offer a unique experience for gaming. It does not have a tactile "bump/click" feeling, which has extra resistance. The light resistance coupled with no "bump" allows quick successive key presses on the same key...

Corsair Vengeance K60 Mechanical Keyboard Review

 

When Corsair releases a new product line, it's never for a "me too" reason. Instead, the company clearly strives to deliver interesting products that people, especially gamers, crave. The Vengeance line-up of keyboards and mice is no exception, and...

The vast majority of keyboards out in the wild use rubber dome keys. They're simple, cheap, mass produced and just 'work'. Keyboard breaks? Get a new one, without batting an eyelid. Rubber domes are one of the reasons we have $5 keyboards. They're also...

Does it's job.

 

If this one were to bust on me and poop out I would overall go and buy another one, but possibly upgrade to the K90 keyboard for the extra features. If you want simplicity, yet "elegance" in your keyboard, 9/10 i recommend this keyboard.

It has a very smooth feel to the keys, the keys are easy to remove and very easily cleaned ; The customizable keys are very useful. I do not use the WASD keys, but i do use the 1 - 6 red keys on my keyboard and they help me (not sure how, they just do)...

No lights. (Get what you pay for) ; The wrist rest isn't of the most comfortable quality and to me is only usable if you have the board up on the taller "stilts" that are on the bottom of the board ; Gets dirty quick. It's very open, which i like and...
