aiming at the very top of the gaming keyboard market with its Vengeance line—two boards with exquisite build quality and luxury price tags. The FPS-oriented K60 may be the cheaper of the two, but it still comes in at more than $100 MSRP, and will never be accused of feeling cheap. In fact, the primary draw of the K60 is its elegant, simple design. The keyboard's thin, heavy foundation has a brushed-aluminum face, and houses the mechanical Cherry MX Red switches in a unique non-recessed configuration that leaves no place for dust and crumbs to collect. The nicely spaced keycaps are rugged-feeling with a very light texture. We prefer the clicky Cherry MX Blue switches for typing, but the smooth Reds only require a light touch and provide an excellent, highly responsive gaming experience. Interestingly, Corsair seems to have opted to save money by using membrane switches for the function and navigation keys, giving the keys a non-uniform feel. Aside from the build quality, the K60 is light on features. It includes a small selection of important media keys, including a nice metal volume wheel, and a much-appreciated Windows key lock switch that prevents you from accidentally minimizing your game.
When you hop onto the gaming grid to engage in combat, the keyboard you type on for work just won't do. You don't want a keyboard, you want a weapon, crafted for reliability and fitted to your specific needs. Corsair has delivered just that with the Vengeance K60 gaming keyboard ($109.99 direct). It's a solid gaming keyboard that offers a little something extra by way of a specially shaped and positioned wrist rest and 10 swappable keys sculpted and textured to make navigating through a digital combat zone as easy as walking in real life. The K60 has a two-toned color scheme with a bare brushed aluminum deck studded with black plastic keycaps, similar to its Editors'-Choice-winning sibling, the Corsair Vengeance K90 ($129.99 direct, 4.5 stars). The plastic caps are made of black plastic, and use Cherry MX Red mechanical switches - the same used on top keyboards like the Vengeance K90 and the Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate ($129.99 direct, 4.5 stars) - for all of the typing keys and the numeric pad, but uses cheaper silicone dome switches under the lesser-used function keys. There's also no backlight, so gaming in low light may leave you in the dark, so to speak.
Corsair has been adding a wide range of products to its portfolio over the last couple of years with a clear intention to introduce something new, rather than just release simple OEM re-brands. Moving on from audio, the company has introduced gaming peripherals, keyboards and mice, with the first models joining select memory products under the Vengeance branding. Let's get to some of the cool facts and specifications with the K60. It's a mechanical keyboard utilizing Cherry MX Red switches, has a 1ms response time, 20-key rollover, includes a set of replaceable textured keys and also a palm rest. There is also a small set of media keys, too. It's the little details though, that separate it from the rather large collection of existing keyboards on the market. The K60 features a standard layout for the most part. It's not a huge lumbering beast with 400 different media keys that you'll never use for opening e-mail, a browser, word documents, media players and all that junk. We have a taskbar for that. It does include playback and volume controls, things that are used. The lack of media keys also means there are no drivers to install; it's pure plug'n'play.
Corsair: They make memory, right? Wrong! They make everything. Well, everything is regards to the computer part/peripheral realm. The big question is; how well do they make these “everything” products? Today I’m looking at the Corsair Vengeance K60 Keyboard and I hope to shed some light on that subject. In the past I’ve looked at Corsairs line of speakers and they faired quite well in the ThinkComputers gauntlet. Previous experience aside, I can’t pump Phil Colin’s through a “NumLock “key so I have to throw out all my pre-conceived notions about Corsair and wipe the slate clean. Will the K60 hold up to the establish Corsair quality? Let’s take a look. Corsair is very good at packaging. The box it comes in showcases the keyboard on the left side and gives you all the information about the product you’d ever need. The box also weights a ton, not due to the weight of the keyboard but the composition of the packing materials. To give you a good idea of how the K60 comes check out our unboxing and overview video below.
Say hello to the Corsair Vengeance K60 keyboard.To some, a keyboard is just a place to collect all your biscuit crumbs and errant Golden Virginia while you look at the latest funny cat video, but for the serious gamer it's a vital piece of kit. These people are prepared to spend a bit extra cash for a keyboard that's comfortable, responsive and maybe even boasts a few extra controls – and Corsair wants in on that action. Like the Vengeance M60 mouse, this K60 is designed with the FPS gamer in mind. Corsair's keyboard is built on a brushed metal chassis and features fantastically clicky Cherry MX red switches for (steady now) fast, smooth action. The WSAD and 1-5 keys are also rubberized and contoured to maximise your gaming comfort and performance, but you can swap these out for normal black keys with a handy tool stowed away, with the spare keys, in the wrist rest if you like. What an impression the K60 makes when you first clickety-clack its keys. It's as if every key input you make is part of some crucially important bomb-decoding procedure or something. Satisfying doesn't even cover it – this is the keyboard equivalent of popping bubble-wrap.
The Corsair Vengeance K60 is one of two gaming keyboards from Corsair, priced at Rs. 5,900 (MRP). It has Cherry MX ‘red' mechanical keys, a solid aluminium chassis, and user replaceable rubberized keys meant especially for FPS gaming. Its sibling, the Vengeance K90, is priced at Rs. 6,500 (MRP), and features pretty much all that the K60 does not, for a marginal price difference. Thus, the Vengeance K60 is hard to recommend over its sibling, unless you are on a tight budget. Its two-year warranty is also notable. The 104-key Corsair Vengeance K60 looks great, with its brushed aluminium chassis making it stand out on your desk, and FPS gaming keys highlighting the keyboard's true purpose – fragging. The weighted volume metal roller and wrist rest further stand out, making the keyboard seem unique amongst conventional ones. The Corsair Vengeance K60 has a solid feel to it, with its warp-free aluminium chassis. It provides great tactile response to its Cherry MX ‘red' mechanical keys, which get actuated at just 2mm and 45 grams of force, and get fully depressed at 4mm. The keys are rated for 50 million operations, and come with gold contacts for faster response times.
