Corsair Vengeance K60 Performance FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Corsair Vengeance K60 Customized




Installing the wrist rest is as simple as clicking in the tabs. All you have to do is line them up and push gently until you hear them click into place. I like the touch of adding feet to the rest to help keep the keyboard from sliding around if all four of the feet are used on the keyboards underside.




This is the last image of the K60 in its natural state, as I mentioned this keyboard is customizable for comfort and usability.




Since I am swapping out the red keys onto the keyboard I thought it was a great time to go ahead and give the Cherry MX Red switches, this time without LEDs, their glamour shot in the review.




Looking at the numbers one through six keys, you can see a gentle curve from edge to edge. This cradles your fingers into them and makes sorting out the keys without looking much easier. Same is said for the curvature of the W, A, S and D keys that make fining them in the dark a cinch. All of these buttons are also textured so hours of game play and sweaty hands won't be an issue sliding off the keys.




As for the black keys that used to reside on the keyboard, you simply press them onto the pegs in the wrist rest for storage and they will be easy to find later if you want to change some or all of them back to these black keys.




When the K60 receives power via the USB 2.0 cables the only lighting to be had is when the Windows lock-out key and the "locks" have been activated on the keyboard.




This is our last look at the Vengeance K60 Performance FPS mechanical gaming keyboard in its fully customized glory. I will test with both the black arrangement and with the red keys installed to see if there are any actual benefits, aside from looking good and the K60 definitely does that in this configuration.
