Designed for performance gaming.
Vengeance K90 is an enthusiast-grade gaming keyboard designed for MMO and RTS gameplay with premium responsiveness, superior customizability, and outstanding durability.
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 typist’s keyboard.
18 dedicated, customizable G-Keys
Easily access to your most frequently used macros, presets and key combinations even during the most intense action. You can record up to 54 programmable functions accessible from three separate banks, ideal for grouping macros by function, or access. Macros can be created on-the-fly, customized, and activated with a single keystroke.
Full key matrix anti-ghosting
Our expertly designed anti-ghosting technology provides flawless control even when you're pressing multiple keys at once. The K90 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.
Full key rollover on USB
Typical USB gaming keyboards are limited to the USB standard six-key rollover. The K90 features increased performance with a 20-key rollover implementation on USB at a blazing fast 1ms (1000 reports per second) reporting rate.
Professional grade brushed aluminum chassis with laser etched, backlit keys
The rugged aluminum chassis provides increased durability and stability compared those that are primarily plastic. The stiff suspension chassis and the laser etched keys are made for durability so they won't degrade over time. And the K90 has over 90 LEDs that provide outstanding illumination even in dim light.
Vengeance gaming keyboard software
Create up to 50 profiles and share, import and export macros with the Vengeance keyboard gaming software. It's a free download at corsair.com.
On-board memory lets you take it with you
36Kb of memory built into the K90 lets you take your customizations and profiles with you and use them on any system.
Easy access multimedia controls
Control all of your music with the easy access media controls.
A USB port on the back of the Vengeance K90 gaming keyboard makes connecting your mouse or other USB devices a simple task.
Soft-touch wrist rest
The soft-touch wrist rest helps you play for hours without fatigue.

KitGuru gives the K90 keyboard their "Must Have" award
"The extensive use of aluminum and soft-touch plastic gives the K90 a sleek and professional look which is far more stylish than what SteelSeries have to offer." "The Corsair Vengeance K90 keyboard can be yours for a price of £98.95 from Amazon.co.uk, which is almost exactly the same price you would have to pay for the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate. Even though Razer is a much more established player in the gaming peripheral market than Corsair, I actually think that the Vengeance K90 is a better buy. The Corsair model feels better built and I prefer the smooth action of the Cherry MX Red mechanical switches."Full Review!

"The feature set is quite robust as well, such as the inclusion of 18 macro keys for a maximum of 54 macros using the three banks, the fantastic adjustable blue backlighting, the useful media keys, the Windows key lock and the pass-through USB port. The design is also stunning, using solid brushed aluminium in conjunction with perfectly textured black keys and the comfortable black palm rest to deliver said great looks."Full Review!

Vengeance HID products gets the "Editor's Choice" award at Bright Side of News
"The build quality, design, and performance of the Corsair Vengeance Gaming line of keyboards and mice is quite literally unparalleled by anyone in the industry. When you take into account the fact that Corsair has built these beautiful keyboards and mice with all of the newest technologies and design, there is no doubt that they have hit the nail on the head. We did have some recommendations for future versions, but the majority of them are personal preferences or very slight nitpicks here and there. When you combine the infallible design of the software and hardware with a strong 2 year warranty, Corsair's Vengeance Gaming keyboards and mice are quite simply the best in the world, ever. We officially (and happily) retire our G15 keyboards and G500 mouse for them and slap the entire Corsair Vengeance Gaming line of keyboards and mice with our Editor's Choice award for simply being awesome in every way possible."Full Review!

Vengeance K90 gets the Silver Award at GamersDailyNews.com
"The Vengeance K90 is a solid keyboard that will do well for most gamers. The sleek design and blue backlit keys are real attention grabbers. Even though the K90 is a great keyboard, after using the K60, I found myself a little disappointed. I know that there are different strokes for different folks, but if you put the K90 and K60 side by side, I believe most people would prefer the feel of the K60 and the look of the K90. I suppose that in the end it all comes down to price. The Vengeance K90 retails for $129.99 MSRP which is $20 more than the K60. If you think that the macro keys and backlighting is worth the extra money, then the K90 is for you. But if not, I think most gamers would be happier with the feel of the K60 keys."Full Review!

Vengeance Keyboard and Mice, all receives the "Gold" award at HardwareHeaven
"In fact we are struggling to find anything negative to say about any of the products, this is as good an entry into gaming gear as we have seen." "One of the key aspects which most jumped out at is when using the mice for the first time was that the M60 feels good in the hand, it is shaped well and comfortable to use but the M90 feels truly fantastic. Corsair has found a great shape for the main body and it is one of those mice which feels like an extension of our hand rather than an addition to it."Full Review!
