Corsair Vengeance K95 CH-9000020-NA Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard (NA)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Great all around, except the LEDs 10/02/2014

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K95 CH-9000020-NA Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard (NA)

Pros: - Excellent build quality
- Very responsive
- Highly customizable
- Amazing feel

Cons: - The LEDs die quick.

- While the extra G keys are great and all, they don't serve much of a purpose while gaming. However, they serve a great purpose for general things inside miscellaneous programs, such as Photoshop. (Great for macro-ing shortcuts to them.)

- Attachment with the G keys is not metal. At first glance you won't really notice this; Not entirely a con in my eyes, but something to point out.

Other Thoughts: As I'm writing this review, I've owned this keyboard for almost exactly 6 months.
Two weeks ago, the G5's LED went out. Last week the G8's LED went out as well.
Today, I turn on the backlighting to notice the G1, G13, G15, and the 0 LEDs have all died.

While the customizable lighting is great and all, it just doesn't last long...

Don't get me wrong, this keyboard is amazing, but the LEDs die out really, really quickly.
If you can get over the fact that half of the LEDs will be dead within a year, then definitely get this keyboard.
Otherwise, maybe look into something else.

All in all, it's an excellent keyboard. After having read so many reviews stating how quickly the LEDs die, I thought if I kept the backlighting off I'd be helping the longevity of the backlighting... Nope. I barely turn on the backlighting anyways, and it just gets more and more depressing each time I do. More and more LEDs die.

COUGAR CF-V14S Vortex Hyper-Spin 150,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: High quality case fan.
Rubber screws for installation.
Not loud enough to be noticeable.

Cons: Price, if anything. Although, you are paying for quality.
If you're buying more than 2 of these cougar fans, the total price will add up quick.

Other Thoughts: I mounted this fan horizontally, and with the other three Cougar fans (CF-V12HPB) that I bought I mounted them vertically.
No weird noises from any of them.

COUGAR CF-V14HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: High quality case fans.
Not loud at all.
Rubber screws for installation.

Cons: Price? You're really paying for quality, here.

Other Thoughts: On a different Cougar fan, the CF-V14S, I was able to mount it horizontally; Some reviews here say that mounting horizontally(?) will cause them to create a loud noise... I have yet to experience this.
I have three of these fans in my case right now, all vertical. (And the one that is horizontal) No noise problems.
