Corsair Vengeance K90 & M90 MMO/RTS Keyboard and Mouse Review


Corsair Vengeance K90 & M90 MMO/RTS Keyboard and Mouse

Corsair, long known for some of the best memory on the market, continues to expand their line up with cases, power supplies, water cooling, and now keyboards and mouses aimed squarely at gamers.

Corsair Vengeance K90 & M90
The Corsair Vengeance K90 MMO/RTS Mechanical keyboard and the M90 MMO/RTS laser mouse are sold separately but Corsair was kind enough to send us both so we could get the full experience. The keyboard is a sexy aluminum plate with blue LED back lit cherry MX red mechanical keys and the mouse is a 5700 DPI laser mouse with matching blue LED’s and and aluminum base plate. The K90 MMO/RTS keyboard and M90 MMO/RTS mouse are the second in the Vengeance lineup for Corsair following the K60 and M60 keyboard and mouse.
The K90 and M90 are targeted at MMO / RTS gamers while the Corsair K60 and M60 keyboard / mouse combination was targeted at the FPS crowd. The key difference is the addition of a plethora of programmable keys to handle all the spell combos and attack moves you can imagine. The K90 adds 18 macro keys with three memory profiles over the K60 and the M90 goes to 15 programmable keys over the M60’s 8. Both the K90 and K60 series have aluminum bases for the keyboard and an aluminum uni-body for the mouse.
Corsair is offering a 2 year warranty on both the Vengeance K90 keyboard and the Vengeance M90 mouse with a street price of $124.99 shipped for the K90 and $59.99 shipped for the M90.
