Probably my favorite keyboard.

Dustin N., Newegg
5 February 2015
  • Summary: Loud clacking is great when TYPING ANGRY!
  • Pros: Nice touch, very responsive. Great for a fast typist. Feels solid, heavy and sturdy. Takes up minimal desk space but still has correct key spacing. This mini keyboard has a beautiful understated old industrial hacker look that markets right to my heart.
  • Cons: It's a little too sensitive to the touch. Very loud if you hit the keys with average force.

Great Keyboard!

Dave J, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I do a lot of typing at work and this really helps when I have to crank out material. The build quality is superb, the aluminum top plate feels very sturdy, unlike most 'flexy' keyboards that come with your computer. I bought this keyboard because it doesn't have a number pad, allowing me to put my mouse in a more comfortable position. The mechanical Cherry MX Red keys are very fast and would be great for gamers looking to get in as many key presses as possible.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Good build quality, Mechanical Key Switches

Nice Little Mechanical Keyboard

Jenny L., Newegg
31 January 2015
  • Summary: Great keyboard, easy on my hands.
  • Pros: Much, much better than membrane switches, and is perfect for someone with weak piano hands like me. I love the look of brushed aluminum and the keyboard's overall very clean, professional look. The textured spacebar is also nice
  • Cons: Padded printed legends on each keycap, multimedia keys don't light up, except for the windows lock key, and there is no number pad, but that is just a small price to pay for such a great keyboard at this price.

Close to perfect

Stephen C., Newegg
30 January 2015
  • Summary: I wish it came with the alternate gaming key covers like the K60. Coming from gaming with a g13, I'm sometimes getting lost on the keyboard, and could really use the tactile guidance.
  • Pros: This keyboard is as close to perfect as I could find, and for that, I give it 5 eggs. It's solid construction, with the smart necessary features like windows key lock, cord management, and rubber feet. The design is beautiful, and I LOVE the condensed form factor, which allows me to more easily use keyboard and mouse in compact spaces. It's mechanical, so there's noise, but it's not unbearably loud. I really hope this one lasts forever.
  • Cons: The only con for me is that the keys are a bit mushy, but that's not the fault of the keyboard--I simply need to adjust to these mechanical switches (it's been a long time since I used a mechanical keyboard).

  • Pros: Orange keys for AWSD
  • Cons: Those said keys (AWSD) have all just about failed causing a lot of problem in gaming . These are suppose to be red cherry switches and they started failing 3 months after getting the board .I was going to return it but they started working again. Don't buy this board if your a gamer

  • Summary: The keycaps, while they do feel fairly sturdy, are pad printed, which generally means the printing will wear out more quickly than with other methods. Only time will tell how long it'll last. While not a problem for most people, the nonstandard botom row keycap sizes used by Corsair will be a problem for people who might want to purchase custom keycap sets to replace the stock caps.
  • Pros: -Cherry MX Red switches -Well constructed body, aluminum faceplate -Tenkeyless design is space-efficient and looks great -Detachable braided cable makes for easy and tangle free storage on the go. -Overall very aesthetically pleasing, looks and feels good to use
  • Cons: -Pad printed keycaps -Nonstandard bottom row keycap sizes -Rear feet do not have rubber bottoms -Front rubber pads are uneven with feet folded out

  • Summary: this is a very nice keyboard if you like compact keyboards. mouse pads keep on getting bigger and bigger the old 17 inch bulky keyboards just get in the way of everything. also the w,s,a,d keys are grey which is a plus because it highlights these keys also the four directional keys are highlighted also very nice keyboard.
  • Pros: very nice keyboard i like the compact design not big and bulky fits nicely on my keyboard tray.
  • Cons: none

Some say it's hard to type with but it's pretty solid the metal backing on it makes it feel ...

Liam McDonald, Amazon

  • Summary: Solid gaming keyboard. Some say it's hard to type with but it's pretty solid the metal backing on it makes it feel like it has tactile feed back to help you type unlike other keyboards with red switches. I would of preferred blues on it to give it a 5 star rating, but sadly it doesn't. If you want a solid mechanical keyboard at a affordable price this is the keyboard for you but if you want a gem of perfectness go with a Ducky or DAS keyboard instead.

Great Quality, Great Price, Great Keyboard

Ryan C., Newegg
25 December 2014
  • Summary: Cherry MX Red mechanical keyboards are my favorite and Corsair does a great job of incorporating them into a solid and refined tenkeyless model. Perfect for a gamer or writer on the go. The softness of the keys and the light actuation point make for a nice model, and the price is very competitive as well. All in all, an excellent keyboard that is certainly worth the money. I’ve been using it for a while and hasn't given me a single problem yet.
  • Pros: Very solid feel. I love Corsair's vengeance series keyboards. They just feel great and last basically forever. The audio control is nice to have on the keyboard and, of course, the windows key lock is always a great feature. I like how nice and compact the keyboard is. The anti-ghosting is also very nice. Never run into problems with ghosting keys.
  • Cons: Perhaps not the best keyboard for every game. No macro keys obviously, but it's a tenkeyless/compact so that's expected. Volume control buttons sometimes stick. Nothing that can't be easily corrected though. No backlighting, just so everybody knows.
