Corsair Vengeance K60 and M60 FPS Keyboard & Mouse ReviewTue, Jul 03, 2012 - 12:00 AM
Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The time I spent with the Corsair Vengeance M60 and K60 has been very
positive. They are both very comfortable and ergonomic. The wrist wrest on the K60
could stand to be longer, perhaps the full length of the keyboard. It’s hard to
adjust coming from a keyboard that has a wrist wrest and then going to the K60
which only provides a rest for the left arm on the WASD keys. I understand this
though, with it being an FPS motivated keyboard. The 20 key rollover is
extremely nice, but something that I personally will never fully utilize but
I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there who are more than capable of
taking advantage of that.
The Vengeance M60 is a claw-grip style mouse, which for some may be a
deal breaker but for me it was perfect. I’ve used many claw-grip mice to date
and the Corsair Vengeance M60 is definitely in the top three for most
comfortable mice I’ve ever held in my hand.
The customization factor of the M60 was really nice. Having the ability
to program 8 buttons any way I want and having a profile for any situation
means I’ll always be in control and know exactly what button to press to get
the desired effect. The sniper button has come in handy more than once already.
In one game of Battlefield 3 alone, I was able to use it effectively at least
four times while hiding out with my trusty sniper rifle.
Overall I have really enjoyed using the
combo of the Corsair Vengeance M60 and K60. They work extremely well together
and they both performed well under the testing I put them through. The
smoothness of Cherry MX Red switches in the Vengeance K60 make the keyboard
perfect for those who want a sensitive gameplay experience from their keyboard. With this being my first mechanical keyboard I was under the impression that all the of the keys were going to be loud and clicky, though the switches in the K60 proved to be the opposite. There was no click to them at all. The high DPI and full customization of the Vengeance M60 are perfect for
claw-grippers who prefer fast and rapid movements in game.
Legit Bottom Line: The Corsair Vengeance K60 and M60 are both extremely well
built, and perform exceptionally well in all circumstances, but shine even
brighter when thrown into a fast paced FPS game!
