5 out of 5 eggsVery nice keyboard

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000074-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Red - Limited Edition

Pros: Cherry MX Red switches means a quiet, light-touch mechanical keyboard. These are non-tactile switches, so you get a smooth, silent depress all the way down, with the contact making a little more than halfway down. If you don't bottom out the switches as you type, this is a very quiet keyboard. Not having to bottom out the switches is a major advantage of mechanical keyboards verses rubber dome keyboards, which do not "make" until they hit the bottom. Over time, large amounts of typing on a mechanical keyboard is much less physically punishing to your fingers because of this.

Extremely well-constructed keyboard with a baseplate that isn't recessed, meaning that it's very easy to clean between the keys and anything that falls into the keys is much easier to remove than on a conventional keyboard with a recessed baseplate.

This keyboard has both anti-ghosting and "full key rollover"--which for a USB keyboard is limited to 6-key rollover. The limitation is in the interface, not the keyboard, and it would be a very unusual circumstance that would require you to press a seventh key while holding down six other keys. While only PS/2 keyboards have true n-key rollover, I can't imagine a circumstance in which you would actually notice the difference in real-world use.

The backlighting features are very nice with adjustable light levels and a couple of different modes, including one very cool mode where the backlighting "follows" the keys that you press as you type.

The media control keys are well-placed and the volume control roller is handy and works well.

Cons: There really aren't any "cons" that I have found on this keyboard.

I do wish it had PS/2 connectivity as well as that is my preferred interface for technical reasons including true n-key rollover.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is not cheap but it is also a high-quality, fully featured gaming keyboard, and you do get a lot of "bang for the buck" with this one. Strongly recommended.

If you are new to mechanical keyboards, once you try one, you'll never go back to rubber-dome keyboards again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood build, dead LEDs

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000074-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Red - Limited Edition

Pros: Cherry Red switches are incredible. Smooth and precise action.
Aluminum frame is above and beyond the standard plastic.
Media buttons work surprisingly well
Textured WASD buttons are a nice touch for most MMO and FPS gamers

Cons: LEDs have been going dead one by one since after the first month I owned it. Now a total of 14 LEDs have died and it just doesn't look as good without the backlighting.
Needs two USB ports and not for a pass through, just for power. Not enough to take an egg off for it but if you have a budget board, this isn't for you.

Other Thoughts: Really the LEDs are a bit of a disappointment to die so quickly.The new RGB keyboards don't have this problem as much I assume because their are built inside the switch itself. The performance of the board itself is unhindered though.
It really has a quality and heavy feel about it, even with the LEDs. The aluminum frame and housing is miles above the exhausted plastic look and feel I've come too familiar with in peripherals. It's a welcomed change and look in my opinion and Corsair's warranty department is unmatched so it won't be a problem for long.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Keyboard

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000074-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Red - Limited Edition

Pros: This keyboard lasted 11 months before being culled due to its stuck keys and broken leds.

Cons: most of the leds went out . the first led went in less than a week and the remainder failed withing 11 months. The keys that control the led brightness and on/off settings became stuck causing n-key lag on my system. Not really what i expect from corsair or a 130 dollar keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I have corsair RAM, corsair watercooling, corsair PSU corsair case. All of these components are high end and function well. The keyboard i bought is certainly a piece of junk tho.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000074-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Red - Limited Edition

Pros: Does everything it is supposed to do. First mechanical keyboard and I think it was an excellent choice.
On off switch for leds is nice as well as programmable modes. Looks great. Nice key feel and extra red gaming keys provided are ergonomic
Analog volume is a nice touch, plugged it in, windows dled drivers and it worked like a charm.
. Great build feel. Nice and solid and feels comfy as heck!
Wish it came with a sticker so I could represent! xD

Cons: Only red, not really a con, but could be for someone looking for a matching system.

Other Thoughts: Really like it. Like I said first mechanical keyboard. I'm am csgo and league of legends player so I really enjoy the crisp response. Definitely recommend this to anyone especially since it is on sale.

5 out of 5 eggsI bought 3 - They are the BOMB!

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000074-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Red - Limited Edition

Pros: Beautiful 4 levels of lighting from off to 3 other levels. Beautiful cloth covered cords, Ft & rear lighting from each and every key with the light spilling nicely behind the keys. The SILVER one looks best, with the red lighted keys. I love the travel and response. We can SEE it so well in the studio. THE HIDDEN FEATURE is holding the CTL + Game key and then the keyboard goes dark, but when you type the keys they will then light us as you press them, individually! There are PROPS in the rear and underneath to get the right angle. The knurled volume control top right is very nice feeling and looking. There is an extra USB that is plugged in via a dedicated plug to itself in the rear of the keyboard too (2 USB's thus plug into your computer if you want to use an accessory...)

Cons: None - it was also ON SALE! - The "Game Keys" are not elegant and do not match, but I'm not much of a gamer; but gamers are sure impressed when they see it. (just toss them if you don't need them)

Other Thoughts: Fancier models also sport macro keys...

5 out of 5 eggsThis keyboard is the best!

This review is from: Corsair CH-9000074-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Red - Limited Edition

Pros: This keyboard is perfect for everything you need. From typing a paper to playing videos games. This keyboard is the best. With the different type of Cherry MX switches you can have the key presses be as loud as you like(Different colors depends on the loudness of the clicks).

Cons: The wrist rest is too smooth for my hand.

Other Thoughts: I am glad this keyboard comes in other colors then just black. I was upset when they discontinued the gunmetal color because it had blue backlit LEDs but, silver does it as much justice. Sadly, with red LEDs.
