    Default Corsair Vengeance K90

    The Corsair Vengeance K90 sports the vaunted Cherry MX switches, comes with fully backlit keys, sports a glut of dedicated macro keys for MMORPG fans, and comes with a rather competitive price tag.

    Grumpy, in response to your request and feedback after the last keyboard review, I expanded the section about switches and other types of keyboards. Hopefully it works better for our readers.

    It's a bit long, but more thorough. I wanted to include a few detailed diagrams about Cherry MX Switches, but I couldn't get permission from the creator in time for the review deadline. I'll see if I can add them later.

    Nice!! Great review.
    This is one of the keyboards I was looking at before buying a steel series...
    I really like the backlit on it.. and layout of the keys. Esp the raise keys diff from the conventional recessed keys.

    This is a little on the expensive side for not being FULL mechanical. However still a good choice IMO. The most important keys are mechanical for the most part.
    I think if I need to buy another keyboard this one would be my first pick at this time..

    Really great review I love everything about that keyboard layout color and looks!
    But to expensive, for my pocket anyway. But if I had the money I would buy it in a heart beat lol!
