From the Manufacturer

The Vengeance K60 Gaming Keyboard: designed for performance gaming.

Vengeance K60 Keyboard
The professional-grade brushed aluminum chassis is visually stunning, and 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.

Contoured, textured WASD and 1-6 Keycaps

The Vengeance K60 is designed to give you complete control even during the most intense action. The contoured, textured WASD and #1-6 keys are soft to the touch and without slip so you can focus on the game without needing to look down to find the right controls. An extra set of standard typing keycaps and a keycap replacement tool are provided for general typing.

Full key matrix anti-ghosting

Our expertly designed anti-ghosting technology provides flawless control even when you're pressing multiple keys at once.  The K60 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 K60 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

The stiff-suspension chassis employs a comfortable yet rugged design that's ideal for single player or LAN party gaming, and provides durability and stability that's better than keyboards made primarily from plastic.

After purchasing a Razer Blackwidow and finding that it was actually warped (wouldn't rest flat on my desk), I returned it and picked up a Corsair K60.

The K60 is an excellent keyboard. The only thing it doesn't have is a backlight.

Not all keys are mechanical but the important ones are. The included additional red and textured wasd123456 keys are nice. The single wrist pad is very nice which surprised me.

The keys press less noisy with a better tactile feel than the Razer Blackwidow. Not to dis Razer, I have the 2012 Mamba Elite wireless mouse and it's really nice.

The brushed aluminum of the K60 keyboard chassis is surpisingly much nicer than any picture you'll see. Drum roller and multi-media keys are good too.

USB Pass-through can make it handy to attach a peripheral on your desktop but I wouldn't consider this a strength.

Nice quality cord, laser etched keys, easy to clean, this is a great keyboard.

(I'm typing this review with the K60 right now and I love using it. I look forward to typing things or playing games because it feels that good.)

-Looks great. Feels great. Not your typical looking "ricer"/"gamer" keyboard. Stays classy like San Diego.
-Easy to clean because of its "open" design. No more getting pieces of chips or something stuck under the keys.
-Comes with grippy red keycaps for the commonly used FPS game buttons.
-Sturdy build quality. You won't have to worry about breaking this keyboard.
-Cherry Red switches make double taps quick and easy. Might even make you a faster typer.
-Volume roller is easy to use and does not feel cheap.
-Media control buttons are a nice touch.

Cons:
-Not all keys are mechanical, but it's really not that big of a deal. Like another reviewer said, it doesn't exactly detract from the typing experience.

-Claims to have laser etched keys but my keyboard came with keycaps that were printed on. Being a huge FPS player, my left shift, WASD, and other related keys have NOTICEABLY started to fade only after two days of use, and it's day 6 today with even more fading. (I'm only using all black keycaps--no reds.) I wonder how much longer before the rest of the keys start to fade.

I wouldn't mind if the keys started fading after a couple months of usage, but after two days[of heavy usage] some of my keys are already grey. Maybe I just got a bad keyboard so I'll be exchanging this one for another. If the problem still persists, even though it's a great keyboard, I like my keys to be of the non-fading type... I'll unfortunately have to return this one back to the store.

Verified Purchase
I got this keyboard for Christmas to replace my worn out Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard (Black). I loved my G15, but wanted to switch to a mechanical keyboard to have more consistent-feeling keys that would also last longer.

Pros:
Great-looking, minimalist design: This keyboard is nothing but a bunch of keys mounted on a single, solid piece of brushed aluminium at first glance, and that's a great thing. The solid metal also has the added bonus of adding weight to the keyboard, which helps it stay exactly where you want it on your desk, unlike my G15 that slid all over my desk. The white LEDs for NumLock, ScrollLock, and CapsLock look classy, serve their intended purpose, and nothing more. The people at Corsair seem to be the only ones who understand that the word "gaming" does not mean the product has to look like some futuristic death machine.

Mechanical keys: The Cherry MX Red switches feel awesome, as do the keycaps. The switches are VERY sensitive and easy to press; this takes some getting used to and may not be to everyone's liking, so I recommend reading up on the types of Cherry switches and figuring out which you like the best before buying a mechanical keyboard. The textured spacebar is a nice touch.

Media Keys/lock key: The volume wheel is AWESOME! If you've ever used any of Logitech's recent gaming keyboards that have volume wheels, it is exactly like that except the wheel is a solid piece of textured metal rather than a rubberized plastic wheel. I was worried about the wheel not being sensitive enough and requiring too much movement to be practical, but it is just right, and no novelty at all.
