Corsair Vengeance K90 Keyboard Review

Software

We're using the very latest software for our review today. Everything is very well laid out and extremely easy to use. You can adjust delay times, remove them entirely, have keys on repeat, a whole array of possibilities.

The most basic functions are prebuilt into the software so you can assign the more obvious ones if you desire. Although that would be hugely missing the point of 54 Macro key possibilities.

Recording is as simple as pressing the macro record button, selecting the memory bank and key to record to and getting on with it. Once you've finished press MR again and you can then tweak it still further if you wish to. It's one of the simplest systems we've seen.

There is something missing, but we'll cover than in the conclusion.

Lighting

There are three different brightnesses available with the lighting, because off doesn't count, and on the left we have it at its lowest setting and on the right at its brightest. It's worth noting that even on full brightness it's not dazzling and, thankfully, the lock indicators are a soft glow, rather than the lighthouse that you get on other keyboards (hello SteelSeries 7G).

Great review Bryan. I really like the look of this keyboard, but the lighting does seem kind of uneven. Not a deal breaker though as overall it look's like another fantastic product from Corsair.Quote

it looks damn easy to clean too - i hate having to turn my G19 upside down, and banging it, to get **** out of it. the k90 would just need can-o-air (or a make-up brush) Quote
