Corsair Vengeance K90 Detailed Features
When an enthusiast spends $130 on a keyboard they expect to get as many features as possible out of it. The Corsair K90 does not fail to impress with its list of extras, providing users with a nice set of features that can make day-to-day life a little better.
The K90 bathes users with a blue light that can be adjusted using the built in keyboard shortcut. The truly unique feature of this keyboard is that due to the raised nature of the keys, light seeps out from under providing a nice glow and some added ambience to a user's workspace.
Corsair included a padded wrist rest that covers the entirety of the K90. For users who would like a more permanent solution than the typical plastic clips used for wrist rests provide Corsair has included an option to screw the rest directly into the metal frame of K90.
Corsair uses two USB 2.0 connectors for the K90. This serves two purposes, one is that it allows USB pass-through to the back of the K90 and second is allowing users to have a 20KRO capability.
Corsair's software is relatively easy to use. To record macros users activate the macro record button and then only need to select the G-key they would like apply the macro to. This can be done both from the interface and directly from the keyboard. This allows enthusiast to build macros in game without minimizing to activate the recording software. The software package also allows enthusiast to build three separate profiles that can be selected with one of the three memory buttons.
The second page of the K90's software allows users to build multiple profiles that allow users are able to quickly switch between to fit their needs. The hardware playback switch allows enthusiast to run their macros directly from the K90 but with the limitation of only one profile is able to be used. This also means that users can take the K90 to a LAN party or a machine that is not theirs and still be able to use their macros.
