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.

Conclusion All told, the Corsair Vengeance K95 is a solid improvement on one of the best keyboards we've seen. Like the Corsair Vengeance K90 before it, the combination of attractive, yet functional, design and wealth of programmable features makes...

Rigid aluminum-frame design, Backlighting is customizable per key (and classy-looking), 18 macro keys enable up to 54 shortcuts, Easy-to-use macro software, with hardware-execution option

Aluminum baseplate tends to show off dust, No choice of switch types (MX Red only)

It’s an investment, as keyboards go. But the way we see it, it’s tough to get into a mechanical keyboard for much under $100, so, if you can,  it’s worth shelling out for the one you really want, because you won’t likely be replacing it for many years....

Corsair Vengeance K95 keyboard review

 

When we tested the Vengeance series keyboards initially, we were impressed. The same sentiment applied to the K90 and the K70 again is a product that brings a smile to my face. The Corsair Vengeance K95 however is not a completely new design keyboard...

Corsair Vengeance K95 Fully Mechanical Keyboard Review

While the keyboard itself may not be perfect, it is currently our favorite keyboard on the market and an improvement on a keyboard that we have already deemed one of the best keyboards ever.

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.

Horrible LED life & firmware.

 

Warranty is garbage, they want you to send it to them, pay for the shipping, hope they fix it but from what I read they sometimes don't. Not worth it, wish they would of taken the time to make sure the LED's would not fail so easily.

I do like the feel of the keys and the layout.

The LED's fail so fast Its ridiculous, I'm on my 2nd one. The first one failed after updating the firmware but before that about 25% of the LED's failed after one 3 months. My 2nd (I'm using now) has the same problem with the LED's failing they started...

A decent set of speakers to hold you over

 

I do not want a surround sound system, I rather use the money to invest in a top-tier headset. My next speakers will be of higher quality.

I am not an audiophile, that is why I have this set. The speakers and subwoofer were easy to set up and place. The sound was crisp with no crackling. They look a bit cheesy but they WORK. The price worked for me so I bought them. I would recommend...

It has been over a year and the left speaker has died. I have unplugged and re-plugged to make sure, and it did indeed, died on me. They are cheap speakers so I was not expecting a lifetime out of them.
