From the Manufacturer

The Vengeance K90 Gaming Keyboard: designed for performance gaming

Vengeance K90 Keyboard
The K90's professional-grade brushed aluminum chassis is visually stunning but built for durability..

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 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.

I went from a logitech G15 to a Razer Black Widow Ultimate to this Corsair Vengeance K90, and I must say, I am so happy with the decision. The black widow is what got me hooked on mechanical keyboard, but i had a few gripes with it. first of all, the mx cherry blues feel great, but they are really noisy. this is just a preference thing, but i really love the feeling of typing on the reds on the corsair k90. i also love the look and construction of this keyboard. the black widow was glossy black plastic, which showed smudges and just looked cheaper than this keyboard.

as far as the whole hybrid mechanical/rubber dome debacle, it hasnt really given me the same problems everyone else has been having. there is obviously a noticeable difference between the two types of keys, with the mechanical keys being superior, but it really doesnt bother me. 99.9% of my keypresses are on mechanical keys, and the feeling of the rubber dome is still pretty high quality. there is one thing that is really bothering me though. the backlight on the rubber dome keys, both the F keys and the macro keys, is quite a bit dimmer than the backlighting on the mechanical keys. it would just improve the overall esthetics to have the backlights be the same brightness. its not that big of a deal, but it is noticeable.

this is the best keyboard i have ever owned, and that included some of the other top keyboards on the market. would highly recommend.

I'm one of the many people who ordered the K90 closer to its original launch window of late October to early November, and hung onto my preorder through all the delays into mid-December. I've heard all the complaints about this being a hybrid keyboard but marketed as fully mechanical, etc, etc, etc. In the end, however, it turns out to be a pretty decent keyboard with a couple quirks and one really bad launch flaw: horribly undocumented software.

I am pleased with the form factor, and the three levels of blue lighting are more than sufficient for my needs. The size is surprisingly compact, and it fits easily on a small keyboard tray without the wrist rest (which I choose not to use) and still plenty of room for a mouse.

As a pianist, I am used to striking keys hard, so was a little dubious whether a mechanical keyboard would do me any good, but I found the cherry red switches to be very comfortable, and, because of the standard spacing between keys, needed only a couple minutes to get used to the feel. The keyboard is probably just as loud as the Dell keyboard I have now relegated to backup status, just a higher frequency of clacking vs thudding. It's a very satisfying typing experience with one exception that I'll mention in a moment.

I am not an MMO player but am a big fan of the plentiful macro buttons mostly for work purposes. The buttons are set up in 3 groups of 6, and are seated much lower than the rest of the keyboard, making them easy to feel for without confusing them with the other keys. The macro keys are also backlit in white, so I definitely think the Corsair folks did a good job keeping the macros look and feel distinct from the main board but still conveniently in reach.

UPDATE 10/12 Corsair has a new version, the K95, available on their page which may interest you, MSRP $149.00. ALL keys are mechanical and it has advanced lighting capabilities and a few other options . The $300.00 price being asked here is an outrage on every level. We must deny and punish speculators and price bots. The original K90 is also still available -new- on Corsair's website for US $129.00

Original review:
This is a really really great keyboard, period. I won't go over what everyone else has said about it except to confirm the positive points and vote NAY on the meme that somehow the non-mechanical keys are an issue. I'll instead spend my review addressing a particular market which may especially benefit from this keyboard- computer programmers.

1.) Key pressure.

If you're a programmer, then between documentation and writing code you actually spend a lot of time pressing keys. The ease with which keys depress can be a real joint saver, especially if you do other things in life which require you to use your hands vigorously. These keys depress very easily. I myself play guitar and lift weights and do a lot of yardwork and some woodworking and all those activities can give your fingers and wrists quite a workout. I don't have carpal tunnel syndrome but just the nonstop pounding my fingers were taking was starting to add up. I would say by using this keyboard I can literally 1/5 the pressure I used to use to trigger the keystroke and it makes a difference.

The challenge is to retrain yourself to not pound the keys. My approach is to set out three minutes each hour (when I remember) to play a "game" whereby I try to type using very little pressure.

The Corsair K90 keyboard is an outstanding keyboard with a very useful feature set.

* Beautiful & fully backlit
* Dedicated media keys
* Easy macros
* Excellent feel
* USB port for peripherals
* Very nice wrist rest

I have tried at least 10 different high end keyboards in the last several months and this is the one that just feels right to me. I enjoy typing and gaming on the Cherry Red key switches. The keys that are silicon dome do not bother me in the slightest. This is pure personal preference, but for me, I really enjoy the feel of typing on this board.

Other reviews have complained about the hybrid key switches, but speaking as an actual owner and user I am very happy with the look, feel, and quality of the Corsair K90.
