Corsair Vengeance K90 Gaming Keyboard

 

The Vengeance K90 is made of a combination of brushed silver aluminum and black plastic, creating a two-toned design. The included palm rest is detachable. The keyboard is full-sized with traditional keys—as opposed to chiclet, which has become so...

Corsair Vengeance K90 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard Review

 

Conclusion: Let's face facts here. The K90 is basically the K60 . The construction of the keyboard matches. The key layout matches. Hell, even the USB “pass-though” and cable match.  The big question is where does “basically” end and the K90 begin?...

Corsair Vengeance K90 MMO Keyboard Review

 

Over the years, Corsair has made us realize just how seriously it takes its products. With the launch of its first Vengeance gaming peripherals, we expected to see a continuation of this top-rate quality, but so far, things have been a little hit or...

The software is still the same as what we dealt with for the M60 review, the 2.12 beta release, which means it still has the same limitations, though fortunately no partial bricking this time.

Corsair Vengeance K90 MMO Gaming Keyboard Review →

 

Corsair Vengeance K90 raises the bar to new heights for gaming and mechanical keyboards alike, but could stand to lose its dome-switched function keys that greatly diminish the backlighting and feel. A driver and firmware update couldn't hurt either.

Individually-backlit typewriter keys ; Cherry MX mechanical keyswitches ; 18 macro keys with 3 shift states ; Dedicated media controls ; Smooth volume roller ; Full wrist rest included ; Windows key lockout ; Standard 104-key layout ; Rear-mounted USB...

Membrane dome-switched function keys ; Current firmware results in occasional repeating key ; Backlight for function keys is very dim ; USB port is single-port passthrough ; Lacks the reverse tilt of the K60 ; Only available with Cherry MX Red...

Corsair Vengeance K90 Mechanical Keyboard

 

Having reviewed many keyboards it suprised me how excited I was to review the Corsair Vengeance K90. With its unique design, Cherry MX Red switches, and as Corsairs first foray into the keyboard market I found the K90 to be a interesting prospect in a...

Mechanical Design ; Linear force profile ; Quiet design ; Beautiful brushed aluminum exterior ; Easy to use software ; 20KRO instead of typical 6KRO for USB keyboards

The function keys and G-keys use rubber dome switches ; Very expensive keyboard

Performance in a keyboard is about being able to type and game without the peripheral holding the enthusiast back. Thankfully, the Corsair K90 performs admirably in both gaming and typing because the Cherry MX Red mechanical switches are great to type...

Corsair Vengeance K90 Keyboard

 

After heavy usage over a period of two weeks on the Corsair K90, the performance and feel of the keys were definitely outclassing preferred keyboards using even more expensive non-linear Cherry switches. It appears that a natural adaptation is to not...
