Corsair Vengeance K90 Continued

Now I flipped the K90 on its face to show what goes on under the keyboard. On the back corners you get flip out feet to add an additional half an inch of height to the back of the K90 to allow you to get a more ergonomically angled keyboard for pain free usage.

Near the front on both the left and right sides you see this. There is a skinny, but longer rubber pad to keep the K90 from sliding around, but also notice the place at the right of the image that allows you to clip in the wrist rest.

Along with the mounting points I just pointed out in the last image, there is a brass insert on the side to allow for a thumbscrew to be used to securely mount the rest, something not offered on the Logitech G110 I had with a rest. This will keep the rest secure and hopefully it won't flop around like my G110 did.

This is a look at the back of the wrist rest. As you can see there is in fact a thumbscrew that will screw into the keyboard. Keep in mind there is a pair of these. Along with the clips that go into the front of the keyboard, this mounting system is top notch.

Taking a step back to look at the entire rest, you can see how the clips and screws match the bottom of the keyboard for a simple and quick installation process. I do like that the rest also has additional anti-skid pads so that the textured coating on the rest isn't worn off as it wraps the edges of the rest.

As I mentioned, the K90 offers a pass through USB port on the back of the keyboard and here it is. This allows you to add say a mouse here like the M90 or M60, or as I do, plug in my Vengeance 1100s. This port is native USB 2.0 and is backwards compatible.

Now that we have almost everything covered, I thought an image of the K90 with the textured wrist rest was in order!

Powering up the K90 and setting the light switch to its 100% setting, you can see the LEDs under each key are super bright and will do a great job of getting you through any late night gaming sessions in complete darkness.

Again taking a step back to soak it all in, you can now see what I meant about what keys are lit and which are not. From the tilde key to the backspace on down is illuminated on the left, the arrows in the middle and the number pad all get the blue LED treatment.
