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.

LED's burn out

 

If you aren't buying the keyboard for the LED's, then this is a great keyboard for you. If you don't want to RMA something often, then I suggest you look elsewhere. I think I may have overrated this item with three eggs. If I am going to pay $140 for a...

The keyboard itself is great, the keys feel nice and brushed metal finish makes this board look great! When working, the LED's look great and the multiple G keys are great for gaming

After reading some of the reviews before I purchased this, I noticed a lot of people having issues with the LED's dying. I didn't think much of this and went ahead and bought this $140 keyboard anyway. Well. You should probably listen to the reviews. I...

Good for Gaming NOT typing

 

This is my #1 choice of Keyboard for gaming and my last choice for typing. The keys are so sensitive that if you are not an expert in typing (I am not) you will make so many mistakes it will drive you nuts!

Looks great, Awesome features

Too sensitive for typing

Limited Use

 

For $150 dollars I would expect at least several years of flawless usage. I will never be purchasing a Corsair keyboard again.

Looks beautiful when unboxed ; Feels / sounds great when in mint condition ; Was great for ~6 months

Well, the first one was DOA, so there's that ; The one I've since had has deteriorated rapidly over time ; My "M" key has broken three times, where it fits on top of the switch, the key simply breaks. I first swapped M with the right windows key --...

Burned out L.E.Ds

 

Easy to type on ; Mechanical switches are a dream ; Good customization

Both mine and two of my friends have all experienced burned out keys ; It should be noted that I turn the back lighting off every time I'm not using the keyboard ; Unless you really want the G-keys I would recommend that you buy from a different...

Not good

 

Very nice clicky sound and that's about it

Volume stopped working back in January, I requested a ram they approved it but they wanted me o pay for shipping which I thought it was unfair, so I decided to just live with it, but now the led does not work on 6 keys, for some reason my #9 key is...

Skip This One

 

If you want a solid keyboard and do NOT care about the lighting, it's incredible. The build quality in regards to the lighting leaves a lot to be desired, especially for a keyboard in this price range. I have heard about and seen so many complaints...

Keyboard feels solid, no flexing of the base ; Perfect feedback with keystrokes ; Excellent features and programmability ; Gorgeous to look at ; Immediate response time

LEDs started dying within a few months and I am now up to 40+ failed LEDs

ATI Radeon 7500 64mb PCI card

 

I purchased this board from Newegg.com in August 2013. I am presently working on my third (that's 3rd) replacement (that's 4th K95 keyboard). The problem is the individual key LED's burn out prematurely. I received my present K95 on 5/6/2014. To date I...

Individualized key lights; 18x3 function keys; easy to use software; USB port; Mechanical keys - Cherry Reds

Individual Key LEDs burn out within a couple months
