Corsair Vengeance K60 Keyboard Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Introduction

Corsair is releasing a new brand of gaming-grade keyboards and mice called Vengeance, with models for FPS and MMORPG games bearing distinct characteristics. The first one we tested is the K60 mechanical model for shooter games, with no illumination or programmable keys. It’s just a highly accurate peripheral with a robust chassis, as we will see later. Let’s first describe its physical characteristics.

Since it doesn’t feature an extra cluster of programmable keys, the K60 is a conventional-sized keyboard, going against the market trend of massive gaming-grade keyboards that take up a lot of space on the table. It has a 2 mm-thick brushed aluminum chassis where the keys lie on the board. Since they’re not embedded into the board, it’s easy to clean the peripheral with a brush or a can of compressed air.

Almost all the keys are mechanical; that is, they are not part of a whole ensemble resting over a circuit board as on membrane keyboards. Here, they work independently from each other. Only the ESC, function and page navigation keys are regular membrane keys.

On the right upper corner, the user can find the Windows key lock button, multimedia controls and a volume control roller. There are three small white LEDs for the Caps, scroll and number locks.
