Corsair vengeance K60 review -
Alright, talk is cheap. We're going to have a closer look at the product guided with the help of lotsa photo's. As always packaging and bundle first.
Unpackaging shows a simple bundle, the keyboard, extra red WASD rubberized keys, the soft touch wrist rest and a manual/warranty guide. There is no software installation needed or required.
Once we have a better and closer look at the keyboard the word sturdy comes to mind. The keyboard is heavy, made out of a plastic base with brushed aluminum on top of it. The keys are placed onto (not into) the keyboard. The heavy weight combined with rubber feet will ensure you from the keyboard sliding away. It has a very firm grip on my desktop.
The overall look and feel of the aluminum gives the keyboard again ... a sturdy, stylish finish.
The K60 model lacks extra programmable gaming keys which it's bigger brother the K90 does have, we don't mind. The keys itself are mechanical (except the function row which are are rubber dome based), making use of Cherry Red MX switches.

There is also a windows lock mode key, which allows you to disable the Windows key and get dropped back to the desktop by accident in a hefty gaming session. These functions are all supported at default, there's no need to install any software.
The keys themselves are very exposed though, simple cleaning works out well with say a can of compressed air. However, being exposed like that has another effect as well, the base will collect dirt more quickly. It's not massively different with normal keyboards, but sure ... the base is simply very exposed and thus more susceptible to dirt.
We review the Corsair Vengeance K95 mechanical keyboard with cherry red switches. The K95 is the flagship successor in the popular Vengeance keyboard series and while it uses the same basis and conc...
