We continue to analyze the Vengeance line of gaming-grade keyboards and mice from Corsair, after reviewing the FPS-oriented K60 keyboard and M60 mouse. Now we’re about to see the peripherals designed for strategy and role playing games, featuring more configuration capabilities. First we’ll take a look at the Vengeance K90, a mechanical keyboard with 18 macro keys and an illuminated aluminum chassis. Let’s describe its physical characteristics.
At first sight, the K90 is the bigger brother of the K60. Is has the same 2 mm-thick brushed aluminum chassis where the keys lie on the board instead of being embedded into it, so the peripheral is easier to clean. The main difference between the two models is the 18 key macro pad on the left of the K90. Above it and a little to the right, the user can find the on-the-fly macro recording button, plus three more buttons to select the current user profile.
