Conclusion: The Vengeance K60's Cherry Red switches offer a unique experience for gaming. It does not have a tactile "bump/click" feeling, which has extra resistance. The light resistance coupled with no "bump" allows quick successive key presses on the same key far easier than competing switches. The K60 is optimized for any keyboard mashing game or game with keyboard + mouse control configuration.
Pros: Cherry MX Red switches for light resistance and high spam-ability, 20 key rollover, Contoured and textured FPS keys which can be swapped with traditional keys, Key extraction tool included, USB port available, Slick design
Cons: Wrist rest may feel slightly odd, Cherry MX Red switches not for everyone, typing experience mixed., Very narrow feature set
Excerpt: CORSAIR IS 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.
Pros: Feels great; cool design; easy to keep clean.
Cons: Not all keys are mechanical; no software support.

Today, we evaluate the two products optimized for first person shooters: the Vengeance® K60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and the Vengeance® K60 Laser Gaming Mouse.
Summary: This is a swell mechanical keyboard that knows its target audience well, but could stand to use a firmware fix and ditch the membrane dome-switched function keys.

Corsair's Vengeance K60 and K90 mechanical keyboards
4 April 2012
Summary: Considering the Vengeance K60 and K90 are Corsair's first keyboards, I think the company deserves a lot of credit. These are fantastic products, and the K60 in particular feels a lot more polished than entry-level mechanical keyboards in the same price range. The only real tradeoff is those rubber-dome switches along the top row and paging block, but frankly, those don't bother me much. They're a minor inconvenience, if that.
Summary: The Vengeance K60 is a high-performance keyboard with sturdy keys. The left hand wrist rest makes it easy and comfortable to play for hours on end. Unfortunately, there’s no illumination, but the elevated keys make cleaning the board easy. Since the keyboard doesn’t feature programmable keys, we recommend getting a high-precision gaming-grade mouse. (Corsair itself has released a companion mouse for the keyboard, the M60 mouse, which we’ll test later.
Excerpt: Just the other day I wrote up what has been as truly pleasurable keyboard to use all the time, no matter that situation, the Vengeance K90 for MMO and RTS gamers , but today we have something a bit different.
