  1. Corsair has unveiled several second generation Vengeance gaming peripherals including the Vengeance K95 Mechanical Keyboard, an update to the original K90 announced at last year's CES. The revised board is said to make up for some of the shortcoming found...

    HA HA captainawesome was complaining in the Roccat Ryos MK Pro keyboard article that there were no good backlit mechanical keyboards with decent standalone media keys. So seeing this keyboard is somewhat hilarious and alluring at the same time. Though, maybe they are not big enough?

    Kind of liked the silver aluminium finish on the original K90 better, the all-black styling just makes it look like all the other mechanical keyboards out there.
     
  4. As a hardcore gamer I can say that cherry mx reds and blacks are garbage. Stick with blues or browns. My favorites are browns. The tactical sound from the blues is totally unnecessary and only aggravates the people around you. And in my opinion, the O-Rings on the keys are a must. Cherry MX brown, with O-Rings FTW!

    Maybe you like them but then again not everybody is you. It's a strange twist of nature that people tend to use what they're most comfortable with.

    Yep & it has dedicated multimedia keys. It's sure to tickle him pink.
    I'm somewhat disappointed that Corsair still persist with their "sandpaper" side grips on the M65 instead of a rubberized finish. I switched to the M60 after My Kone finally cashed it in after 3 yrs of abuse but I went through 2 M60's in 3 months due to the side grips wearing smooth but apart from that (and the tiny back & forward browser buttons) it was a fairly decent mouse. To Corsair's credit they did RMA it very quickly but I'll stick with my Kone Pure. I love it.

    Ah yes, a white mouse. After a month or two it will be stained brown and orange from hand grime and Cheeto dust. There's a reason most things your hand go on aren't white or gray anymore.

    On the flipside, that keyboard is really tempting and I'll probably pick it up. I'm at CES right now and I'll keep an eye out for the booth. Hopefully you can get a hands on.
