Corsair Vengeance K95

 

The Corsair Vengeance K95 gaming keyboard combines sophisticated design and extensive gaming features for one of the best keyboards we've seen for either gaming or professional use.

High-quality mechanical keyboard is great for gaming or typing. Individual key backlighting. Numerous programmable macros. Built-in media controls. Detachable palmrest. Solid aluminum construction

No color options for backlight. Pricey

Corsair is back with a Vengeance, and I couldn't be happier. The Corsair Vengeance K95 ($149.99) replaces the Corsair Vengeance K90 as the company's premier gaming keyboard, and the mechanical keyboard keeps nearly everything I loved about the original...

The Corsair Vengeance K95 is the ideal companion for PC gamers. Compare the best gaming keyboards at TopTenREVIEWS.

You can toggle the LED underneath every key individually, and the brushed aluminum housing outlasts most other keyboards

This keyboard lacks color LEDs

For a solid mechanical keyboard that can keep up with your gaming needs, there is no better option than the K95.

Corsair Vengeance K95 Review

 

The flagship mechanical keyboard from Corsair is here, featuring 18 macro keys, key-by-key illumination and Cherry MX Red switches.

Fully featured ; Mechanical Switches ; 18 Macro Keys (all mechanical) ; Per-key backlighting, including macro keys, for personalised configurations ; Easy-switch on board profiles ; Multiple lighting modes ; Brushed-Aluminium chassis

Sometimes we have to tie ourselves in knots to explain our findings and justify our awards, but for the first time in a while that’s not the case. The Vengeance K95 is just that good.

So many burnt out LEDs

 

The [U, S, D, F, K, Semicolon, open bracket, F6, F12, , L-ALT, L-Win, Num 7, and Num Enter] keys all have burnt out after 8 months of use. What bothers me is that the keys I barely used burnt out before the ones I use non stop. The keys them selves...

Excellent Keyboard ; Very nice volume and media keys ; Good quality Keycaps ; Sturdy ; Macros, so many macros ; Plenty of keyboard lighting options

LEDs tend to burn out quickly

Great Keyboard

 

I would wate a few months before upgrading your keyboard. THIS keyboard is comming out as a fully mechanical keyboard with 16.8 million RGB color Head to Corsair to see the video.

Back lit, mechanical cherry red mx, solid build quality. (plastic and aluminum). wrist wrest is comfortable

Only one LED color white

Switches failing after 6 months

 

Bought 2, 1 for me and my brother. His is working fine.

Brushed Aluminum finish, functionality and looks great. Software non-invasive and simple to use

Got it in October 2013, this board is now doubling, sometimes triple typing the letters I'm pushing down. Enter key barely recognizes my push and sometimes takes >4 times to register. A few other keys are sharing same pattern of failure. I'm not...

LED's burning out

 

Would have been a great keyboard but LED backlight on some keys have burned out. Considering the price and expected life of LED's this appears to be a design issue (over driving the lamps) or a quality issue with the assembly/soldering. I would expect...

Looks nice sturdy design mechanical switches have a nice feel. easy to program

LED's burn out

LEDS die and corsair doesn't answer tickets

 

I would expect more from an item that costs this much.

For the most part descent

LEDS burnt out within the year and more keep going. Have 2 open tickets with corsair and I never get a response. I have many corsair components in a very high end build but it seems this might change for all future builds if this is how their customer...

Great keyboard, but LEDs die quite quickly

 

The keyboard is great! It feels great and I love the wrist rest on it. The keys feel great and the G-keys are very useful, you can set them to many different commands ; I love the black brushed aluminum back plate on the keyboard, it gives it strength...

Now heres where the keyboard fell short, a lot. The LEDs die very quickly. I have had my K95 for about 8 months and 10 LEDs have died in the past 3 months. It took the LEDs a while to start dying, but once the first one went, one went about every...

An absolute disappointment

 

I purchased this keyboard approximately four months ago, but I only listed my ownership as 1 day to a week because that's how long I've actually had one. The first one I had was working great for a while. At one point, I unplugged it so I could move my...

Feels great, looks great, keys feel amazing, very customizeable

Unreliable, dies, terrible customer support, no FAQ, constant issues, owner has to pay for shipping for RMA, takes too long for RMA to be fullfilled
