Corsair Vengeance K90 Review

 

The keyboard might be one of the most ignored pieces of hardware for PCs, even though it's among those most interacted with. Everyday PC users tend to skimp on keyboards and mice, but it's the gamers who are particular about their peripherals. Mice...

The Corsair Vengeance V90 sells for a price of Rs. 7,280, which in our opinion is very expensive for a keyboard. Sure, it is a great performing keyboard, and is built really well, but this is something we’d recommend to someone who’s got a really...

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 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 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 releases a mechanical keyboard for RPGs and strategy games within the new Vengeance brand. Check out our test.

Elegant illumination with intensity control ; Great number of macro choices ; High precision mechanical keys ; Easy to clean ; USB port on the backside ; Blue connectors are easy to spot

Crowded macro key pad ; Macro keys could also be mechanical ; Mechanical typing can get tiresome

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...

Some keys feel very cheap ; Lack of mini-jack support
