Corsair Vengeance K90

Corsair Vengeance K90

Corsair Vengeance K90 is a top of the line gaming keyboard. While the 60-series from Corsair is made for FPS games, the 90-series is all about MMO and RTS games. The core of the keyboard is the Cherry MC Red mechanical key switches, that is supposedly the best switches money can buy. They are made for precise and silent execution to not disturb you while gaming. The mechanical specifications of the Corsair Vengeance K90 also allows for anti-ghosting, meaning that you can execute huge button combinations without the risk of some keys not getting pushed. This is a key feature when playing action intensive games such as StarCraft 2. For the MMO-players Corsair has provided 18 dedicated macro key or G-Keys as they like to call them. Theses buttons may be customized using the provided software to use for all of your macros in games such as World of Warcraft.

Reviewers Summary

Reviewers are happy with the build quality of the Corsair Vengeance K90. Nothing bad are really being said about the overall construction. Where some of the reviewers point out that not all the keys are mechanical. Others are saying that mechanical switches on all buttons would be overkill to begin with. The software is where Corsair might have to do some extra work. While it’s easy to prepare a new version of the software, by the time of our research the software could use some enhancements. Reviewers are saying that the macro setting in the software are a bit hard to work with, further Corsair has chosen to include support for both Corsair Vengeance K90 and M90 in the software, but they have left out support for their line of headsets which is quite odd.
