Great keyboard. Love it!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Corsair CH-9000020-UK Vengeance K95 Performance MMO/RTS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Black (Accessory)
First things first: I've never used a mechanical keyboard before and I wanted to try it out so this is my first experience.
I wanted media keys and I wanted to be able to start up applications at the press of a key on the keyboard I purchased and so that narrowed down the selection of keyboards I could use by a hell of a lot. I saw this from CES 2013 and thought it looked absolutely amazing and so I was led strongly towards it when I got round to replacing my keyboard.
Am I glad I bought this! It's wonderful! The keys feel very nice (Cherry MX Red keys) and not too noisy though they are louder than my old keyboard. The software is relatively good and setting up the macro keys is quite simple.
By default, this keyboard won't work pre-OS on my machine and so thanks to its handy BIOS selection feature, I can switch the BIOS to one that does work when I need to.
As for build quality, I do really like it, however the macro keys are on a plastic extension which does feel a little cheap and makes the macro keys feel different (a bit mushy). Other than that, great keyboard!
