Mechanical keyboards are all the buzz recently with nearly every major manufacture releasing their own take on this very old technology. Many of these keyboards are aimed at the gaming community, promising better feedback and usually something along the lines of better performance in games. But the thing is, most are just a standard run-of-the-mill keyboard with mechanical switches. Or if they do offer something a little extra, it may not be enough for what you are looking to do.
Today we are taking a look at Corsair’s top of the line entry into the mechanical keyboard market, the Vengeance K90. This keyboard is the MMO-oriented version of their new keyboard line (the other being the FPS-oriented K60). With this board we get the great mechanical keys we love with Cherry MX Red switches, but also get a massive bank of fully programmable “G-keys” as well as multimedia controls and laser etched backlit keys. The idea here is no compromises. This keyboard offers pretty much every feature you could want in a high end keyboard. Read on the find out if the feature list will translate into a quality keyboard.
