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 ultra-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 typists 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 fast 1ms (1000 reports per second) reporting rate.
Professional-grade brushed aluminum chassis with laser etched keys The comfortable yet rugged design is ideal for single player or LAN party gaming and provides increased durability and stability when compared to those that are primarily plastic. The stiff suspension chassis and the laser etched keys are made for durability so they wont degrade over time.
The K60's Cherry MX Red key switches provide the sensitivity and low operating force that professional gamers love.
Ergonomic wrist rest The ergonomic soft-touch wrist rest helps you play for hours without fatigue. It even doubles as a safe and secure holder for the included spare set of WASD and #1-6 keycaps.
Easy access multimedia controls Control all of your music with the easy access media controls.
USB pass-through A USB port on the back of the Vengeance K60 gaming keyboard makes connecting your mouse or other USB devices a simple task.
