The Vengeance K60 from Corsair is a hardcore FPS keyboard. Not only is it built to last, but perform. It retails for $109, so you’ll need to be, well, a hardcore gamer to justify its cost and features.
Built to last might actually be an understatement. This keyboard’s chassis is made from brushed aluminum and sports laser etched keys, which means neither should ever wear out. The WASD and #1-6 keys are textured, contoured and slightly soft to give you a one up on your opponent since you’ll always know where your fingers are thanks to their tactile response, and that they won’t slip during even the most intense of gameplay. If you find those special keys bothersome you can switch them out for a set of standard, hard plastic set, which can be stored inside the wrist pad. Good if you’re knocking out an email to your (virtual) girlfriend explaining why you can’t hang with her this weekend.
We’re not PC gamers, but whatever “anti-ghosting” is, it sounds freaking cool. According to Corsair it all but guarantees that when you mash down on multiple keys, each one will input 100% of the time. Furthermore, it can register up to 20-keys at the same time all at an ultra fast 1ms response time.
Lastly, there are the requisite media keys and a USB pass through slot, the latter allowing you to connect a mouse or other USB device, though it probably won’t charge your iPhone.
The Corsair Vengeance K60 is available now, but note that it is not Mac compatible.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
