Corsair Vengeance K90 Performance MMO Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2012-02-17

The K90 Performance MMO Gaming Keyboard from Corsair is a solid product and comes with a combination of MX Red switches and silicone domes (the domes are only used for the less frequent used keys). On the left we have no less than 18 programmable keys and thanks to the extra 3 memory banks, we can assign a total of 54 macros on a single profile. The product integrates very well with the previously reviewed M90 mouse and the software is unified so we can access both mouse and keyboard interfaces from the same menu.

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:

Cherry MX Red mechanical key switches

Cherry® MX Red key switches are the best of the best — they provide the sensitivity and low operating force that professional gamers love. Reaction times are ulra-fast and responsive for quicker double and triple taps. The action is predictable and linear unlike lesser gaming keyboards that have a tactile bump or the annoying click of a typist’s keyboard.


18 dedicated, customizable G-Keys

Easily access to your most frequently used macros, presets and key combinations even during the most intense action. You can record up to 54 programmable functions accessible from three separate banks, ideal for grouping macros by function, or access. Macros can be created on-the-fly, customized, and activated with a single keystroke.


Full key matrix anti-ghosting

Our expertly designed anti-ghosting technology provides flawless control even when you're pressing multiple keys at once. The K90 has individual switches with dedicated diodes for each switch so every key press results in an input and is 100% ghost free without tradeoff or compromise.


20-key rollover (20KRO) on USB

Typical USB gaming keyboards are limited to the USB standard six-key rollover. The K90 features increased performance with a 20-key rollover implementation on USB at a blazing fast 1ms (1000 reports per second) reporting rate.


Professional grade brushed aluminum chassis with laser etched, backlit keys

The rugged aluminum chassis provides increased durability and stability compared those that are primarily plastic. The stiff suspension chassis and the laser etched keys are made for durability so they won't degrade over time. And the K90 has over 90 LEDs that provide outstanding illumination even in dim light.
