Summary: replaced my g15 with this. It is a total different feel when typing on it as this is a mechanical keyboard. It is very nice, matt finish with alumninum chassis. The reds are provides fast response, low actuation force at 45 cN , which is perfect for gaming. One of the best mechanical keyboards out there with lots of features on it.
Summary: The K95 is the first mechanical keyboard I have used since the days of the original IBM PC - which in my book still had one of the best keyboards ever in terms of feel. The cherry red is a soft mechanical key, so it is a soft keyboard to type on with no click. There is a click but that's more the plastic key hitting the bottom of the travel more than anything else.
Summary: First mechanical keyboard, and I'm never going back. You can feel the quality with every key press. The optional textured WASD -12346 keys on the corsair website are also fantastic, as they're the only ones I could find that still let the backlight shine through the letters. Fantastic keyboard. The cherry red switches are so light, sometimes when I rest my hand on the keyboard, I'll press keys without even realizing that I'm pressing them.
Pros: ALL mechanical, unlike the K90. Easily customized back lighting. 18 G-keys! Easily recorded with macros to boot! CherryMX Red's are fantastic after just switching from Blue's after killing my Blackwidow Ultimate. Rolling volume control is a huge bonus for me. Almost the primary reason for purchasing this model!
Cons: White back lights. White? Why white? It it's white, shouldn't any/all colors be possible theoretically? I wish!
Corsair Vengeance K95 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry MX RED

Summary: I was looking forward to getting this well reviewed Cherry MX RED mechanical gaming keyboard, since I require quiet keys and this was identified as very quiet. Unfortunately, I don't consider this a quiet keyboard and neither did my wife. I understand that Brown mechanical keys are supposed to be more quiet. Sadly, this keyboard doesn't come with them. I like the layout of this keyboard and it feels solid and very well made. I liked it's looks, too.
Summary: I've have had many keyboards over the years, my latest a Logitech G110 and it was the best I had up until I decided to buy the Corsair Vengeance K95, this mechanical keyboard is simply amazing for gaming, all the keys are super sensitive so it means when you type or when you game online the keyboard responds to the milisecond, it won't give you the problem where you have to double tap a key cause as you were typing so fast or gaming too hard you press your keys so fast...
The best mechanical keyboard in the world. Period.

Summary: This is currently the 2nd most expensive mechanical keyboard in the world and is the first mechanical switch keyboard I've ever used. I questioned myself about going with a cherry mx brown switch instead but I honestly prefer less noise and hated the rubber dome bump my old keyboard had so I went with this one. Initially my feelings toward it was the keys grip was too much, but after a months use it's almost not noticeable.
Summary: 3.5 stars The hardware is impeccable. Possibly the best keyboard I have ever used. I am typing on it right now and it feels great. A little nosier than my old membrane keyboard but so worth it. The Corsair software is fine as long as you've never used the Logitech software. Corsair is playing catch up to Logitech in software. You see I used to have the Logitech G11 and already I am missing some of the functionality.
