Last Wednesday we showed our new Vengeance Gaming lineup to the North American press in San Francisco. The next day we did the same thing in the UK with the European press. The feedback and coverage we got on our new Vengeance gaming mice and keyboards, as well as our new Vengeance gaming headsets was so incredible we decided to share the highlights with you in this special coverage round-up:
AnandTech — Corsair Enters the Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Market with Vengeance, "I had some brief hands on time with all of the newly announced Vengeance peripherals, they all felt good but it'll take much longer than a short play session to really evaluate these things. I'm mostly curious to see how well these things do in the hands of hardcore gamers. Does Corsair have what it takes to pull customers away from the likes of Logitech, Microsoft and Razer?"
TweakTown — Corsair Pulls Off a One Shot, Double Kill , "There are a couple of meanings for the tag line of this news editorial. You might think since Corsair is launching both a gaming headphone and gaming keyboard / mouse line I'm talking about that. I'm not. Corsair has taken aim at both Logitech and Razor and in one quick shot taken both their heads off. The ultimate one shot double kill."
Hexus — Corsair branches out, again, "Corsair has today announced its arrival in the world of PC input devices by unveiling a range of Vengeance-branded keyboards and mice.
It is the latest in a long line of new product introductions for an American manufacturer who, while best known for its memory products and power supplies, has in recent years rapidly expanded its produce range to include a variety of high-performance products such as solid-state drives, computer chassis, CPU coolers and speakers."
Bright Side of News — Corsair Announces Full Line of Vengeance Gaming Peripherals, "Corsair has always been rooted in performance and their approach towards gaming has come purely as a result of the fact that most gamers demand the best performance. In the last year or two, Corsair has brought on people like Ruben Mookerjee to guide Corsair’s consumer component business in the right direction. Ruben was responsible for the worldwide product development of Logitech’s gaming peripherals division which was responsible for the well received G-series of keyboards, mice and headsets. These products were considered to be some of the best gaming products that the world had ever seen and up until now."
PC Gamer — Corsair gets into keyboards and mice, "The K90 MMO keyboard and K90 MMO mouse, along with the FPS friendly K60 and M60 keyboard and mouse have been developed under the auspices of Ruben Mookerjee, who in a previous incarnatiuon oversaw the launch of Logitech’s G-series of gear.
Mookerjee takes his new role at Corsair seriously. For some people, he says, getting the right peripherals “is a matter of life or death. At Corsair, we say it’s more important than that."
bit-tech — Corsair announces Vengeance gaming peripherals, "The most eye-catching products in the range are the pair of mechanical K90 and K60 keyboards. Both use Cherry red switches, which Corsair claims offer advantages over the more traditional Cherry black switches thanks to their reduced actuation force, which makes double tapping easier."
Tom's Hardware — Corsair Launches New Line of PC Gaming Peripherals, "Breaking away from its typical hardware lineup, Corsair is dipping into the peripheral business with the upcoming release of two Vengeance gaming keyboard ("K") and laser mouse ("M") groups. These address two types of gamers: the FPS player (Vengeance K60 and M60) and the RTS player (Vengeance K90 and M90). All four are expected to hit store shelves sometime in October 2011, ranging from $69 to $129."
Gizmodo — Corsair’s Vengeance K60 FPS Keyboard Is a Headshot-Making Monster, "Let's rush past the part where we acknowledge that grabbing a keyboard with easily-replaceable WASD and 1-6 keys and an ergonomic wrist rest is probably overkill and get right to the part where Corsair's K60 keyboard looks to be a pretty wonderful brand of nerdy."
Everything USB — Corsair Vengeance K60 "Cherry MX Red" Keyboard for FPS Fans, "While it seems that a new gaming keyboard is released every day, very few actually peak our interest like the all new Corsair Vengeance K60 has. This is the for the simple fact that unlike many so called gaming keyboards which rely on mushroom dome keys (we are looking right at you Logitech), the Vengeance K60 takes a different approach and uses high quality Cherry MX mechanical switches. What this means is not only is your keyboard going to be able to take real pounding it will be able to take that level of abuse for years and years."
Engadet — Corsair Vengeance gaming keyboards, mice, and headsets hands-on (video), "Hold on to your seats gaming enthusiasts, Corsair just unleashed an onslaught of Vengeance series peripherals aimed at helping you dominate that Call of Duty marathon... and we got our hands on all of 'em. There's a lot to cover, so we'll get right to it."
