Cherry MX Red mechanical key switches
Cherry® MX Red key switches are the best of the best — they provide the sensitivity and low operating force that professional gamers love. Reaction times are ulra-fast and responsive for quicker double and triple taps. The action is predictable and linear unlike lesser gaming keyboards that have a tactile bump or the annoying click of a typist’s keyboard.
18 dedicated, customizable G-Keys
Easily access to your most frequently used macros, presets and key combinations even during the most intense action. You can record up to 54 programmable functions accessible from three separate banks, ideal for grouping macros by function, or access. Macros can be create d on-the-fly, customized, and activated with a single keystroke.
Full key matrix anti-ghosting
Our expertly designed anti-ghosting technology provides flawless control even when you're pressing multiple keys at once. The K90 has individual switches with dedicated diodes for each switch so every key press results in an input and is 100% ghost free without tradeoff or compromise.
20-key rollover (20KRO) on USB
Typical USB gaming keyboards are limited to the USB standard six-key rollover. The K90 features increased performance with a 20-key rollover implementation on USB at a blazing fast 1ms (1000 reports per second) reporting rate.
Professional grade brushed aluminum chassis with laser etched, backlit keys
The rugged aluminum chassis provides increased durability and stability compared those that are primarily plastic. The stiff suspension chassis and the laser etched keys are made for durability so they won't degrade over time. And the K90 has over 90 LEDs that provide outstanding illumination even in dim light.
The Vengeance K90 gaming keyboard allows you to select from four levels of backlight intensity.

You get the quality you expect from Corsair but the driver needs some improving (Still great considering it's one of their first ever keyboards). I would have preferred green or blue cherry mx switches but that's a personal preference. None-the-less, it's a great keyboard and I am happy with my purchase.
Overall the keyboard is great really all keys not being Mechncial is not a huge deal since the response time is still the same. The wrist rest is not bad considering its built for gaming and it does feel conftable.
I went from a logitech G15 to a Razer Black Widow Ultimate to this Corsair Vengeance K90, and I must say, I am so happy with the decision. The black widow is what got me hooked on mechanical keyboard, but i had a few gripes with it. first of all, the mx cherry blues feel great, but they are really noisy. this is just a preference thing, but i really love the feeling of typing on the reds on the corsair k90. i also love the look and construction of this keyboard. the black widow was glossy black plastic, which showed smudges and just looked cheaper than this keyboard.
Overall I'm very happy. My first mechanical keyboard so it took some getting used to, but now I'm very happy I made the switch. The esc key not being mechanical is my biggest peeve, but other than that very satisfied with the purchase. The macro's for mmo's made it a no brainer.
