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.
Contoured, textured WASD and 1-6 Keycaps
The Vengeance K60 is designed to give you complete control even during the most intense action. The contoured, textured WASD and #1-6 keys are soft to the touch and without slip so you can focus on the game without needing to look down to find the right controls. An extra set of standard typing keycaps and a keycap replacement tool are provided for general typing.
Full key matrix anti-ghosting
Our expertly designed anti-ghosting technology provides flawless control even when you're pressing multiple keys at once. The K60 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 K60 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
The stiff-suspension chassis employs a comfortable yet rugged design that's ideal for single player or LAN part gaming, and provides durability and stability that's better than keyboards made primarily from plastic.
The K60's Cherry MX Red key switches provide the sensitivity and low operating force that professional gamers love.
Ergonomic wrist rest
The ergonomic soft-touch wrist rest helps you play for hours without fatigue. It even doubles as a safe and secure holder for the included spare set of WASD and #1-6 keycaps.
Easy access multimedia controls
Control all of your music with the easy access media controls.
A USB port on the back of the Vengeance K60 gaming keyboard makes connecting your mouse or other USB devices a simple task.

Not only did they up the ante for gaming keyboards by using mechanical keys that easily outclass any Microsoft or Logitech keyboard I've ever used, but they raised the bar over every other mechanical keyboard through dedicated media controls, full 20KRO, a comfortable gaming rest, and some very

I've wanted a mechanical keyboard for a while, but I kept going back and forth on which switches to purchase for gaming. Eventually, I took a chance on the Cherry Reds because I'd heard how responsive they were. Honestly, I couldn't be happier. I was worried by talk of having to "rest" my fingers on the keys or otherwise press them down by accident on account of their light, super linear nature. If you're concerned about that, don't be. They have enough resistance to comfortably rest your fingers... unless, perhaps, you were born with bear paws. Another thing I'd heard about Cherry Reds was that you'll make mistakes typing because how how easily they're pressed. That may hold true with some other brands' older models, but on the K60, this is far from the truth. I type a certified 100wpm with 0 errors. If anything, this sucker has probably increased my typing speed by a minimum of 10WPM. Trust me, it feels so good, I actually enjoy typing... which seems like a rather strange thing to say.
I thought the grooved WASD, 123456 keys were going to be a bit gimmicky, but I was surprised again. They are comfortable, and I'll definitely be leaving them on for this keyboard's duration. On the other hand, the wrist pad felt like it was slightly too raised for me to comfortably hit CTRL. I know I could easily get used to it, but why bother? My hands aren't falling off anyway.
This product is worth the price. I honestly don't think I'll ever need to buy another keyboard again. It's resilient to any button wear and tear, operates after 6 months like it does on day one.
Brushed metal casing makes it not only look good, but stay clean and look clean all the time. The interchangeable keys for wasd 123456 I have on red all the time because it does make it easy to feel when I am reaching around, and make them easy to see if I glance for a quick second.
This keyboard is really aesthetically pleasing. The keyswitches feel great (MX RED) although I'm disappointed to see Corsair use membrane with them too (Yuck). Brushed aluminum looks sick with my computer beside it and M60 utilizing the built in USB hub, braided black wire makes it even better. One thing for sure is the angled textured 1-6 WASD keys do make a difference. Not a loud keyboard.
Would recommend but would only give 4 stars since it uses membrane too, ruined the 5 for me.
This keyboard is a treat for touch typists. I didn't buy this for gaming, though that is what it is intended for. Mechanical keyboards are unnecessarily overpriced since they've become a fad more than a tool, and so to find a good, well priced mechanical keyboard is more chore than choice.
Just switched to this keyboard from a second-gen G15, and the difference in feel is amazing. I haven't had the opportunity to game-test it properly, but the difference in feeling in day-to-day use is phenomenal. It is difficult to express the difference without actually using the keys, but you can tell that you would never go back each time you use the function keys or home/insert group, which are the traditional rubber dome type.
