LAN OC have been busily working their way through Corsair's Vengeance series of gaming peripherals, both the line of keyboards and mice. They start off with the K60 and K90, both mechanical keyboards using Cherry MX Red switches and sporting customizable red rubber WASD buttons with a slant on them to make your fingers more comfortable for long nights of FPS action. Only the K90 sports a three rows of six programmable buttons on the left hand side for use in MMOs, the K60 is more regularly sized.
From there they move to the gaming mice, specifically the Vengeance M60 and M90 which bear many similarities. The software suite which accompanies both mice gives you impressive control over the button programming and sensitivity of the mice and goes further with tools such as one that lets you rate the performance of the surface you are mousing on. Read on to see the physical differences between these two mice.
"Every once in a while you find a company that is able to take a normal product that everyone has and change it in a way that makes everyone wonder why it was never done before. As much as it pains me to say this, Apple was one of those companies. In the pc components business there are a few as well, but the company that stands out the most to me would be Corsair. Every time corsair enters a new market, I find myself impressed with what they have to offer. Even though it seems like they are always jumping into random markets, they take their time and research what everyone has to offer and what people would really want to see. This week we are going to take a look at their new Vengeance lineup of mice and keyboards to see if they have done the same in these new markets. Today we are going to start with their new keyboards, let’s dig in and see what they are all about."

Corsair = problematic
Corsair = problematic customer service. I think a lot of their designs aren’t original and they don’t stand behind their products. I’m still waiting on replacement parts for a case fan controller that magic smoked back in April. Eta is always pushed back and pushed back. I find some of their designs nice when they function but I just have a hard time finding their products attractive when razer already makes these mice almost identically and has been pulling it off quite nicely for years. End rant.
