The Corsair Vengeance K90 is a sturdy, mechanical-switch keyboard, with an unmatched set of gamer-specific features, including 18 macro keys that can be programmed directly from the keyboard without installing any software. Anti-ghosting and 20-key rollover help make the keyboard more responsive to the right keystrokes and while ignoring the wrong ones. And, of course, there's an adjustable backlight, a USB port (especially useful, since the Vengeance requires two ports for itself), and a removable palm rest. show more

The K90 is definitely an excellent piece of kit, and it feels like it was designed by people who used other gaming keyboards and felt like those products just weren't cutting the mustard.

Benchmark Reviews Apr 16, 2012

The enthusiast gets a great product out of the K90 with its linear force switches, brushed aluminum exterior, and software that is easy to use. Overall though the Corsair K90 is a extremely expensive keyboard but it does provide many great features for users.

Are these devices expensive? Yes, though not extravagantly so, compared to the competition. Are they worth it to gamers looking for a great experience from their peripherals? Indeed.

Everything USB Apr 30, 2012

It 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.

With high quality switches, heavily braided cable, tank-like construction and very easy customisation the Vengeance K90 keyboard is excellent and a worthy winner of our OC3D Gold Award. Just a shame the software somewhat lets it down.

The K90 is a competent gaming keyboard with the Cherry switch variety that makes most sense to me on such an article - reds. These have no click / resistance like blues, no (irrelevant IMO) actuation detent like the browns, and a lighter touch then the blacks - which makes it most suitable for...

I've had it almost two years now and still love it. I do type more accurately on a Cherry Blue switched keyboard with wider key tops, but I really don't like the double click noise and it's awful for even casual gaming, the Cherry Red on this are ideal. My very first one was returned within a...

Wristrest, roller volume key. MX Cherry Red keys is all nice features of this keyboard. But.. you have to be wary with first versions of Corsair products. They usually release something better a year later.. Case in point: K95 looks really nice and hopefully dont have the drawbacks of K90: *...
