Corsair announces Vengeance gaming peripherals

Corsair announces Vengeance gaming peripherals

Corsair is targeting its new gaming peripherals at specific game genres.

Corsair has just unveiled its new range of Vengeance-branded gaming peripherals. The range is due to be made up of a number of keyboards, mice and headsets, all of which should be hitting the market soon.

The most eye-catching products in the range are the pair of mechanical K90 and K60 keyboards. Both use Cherry red switches, which Corsair claims offer advantages over the more traditional Cherry black switches thanks to their reduced actuation force, which makes double tapping easier.

The K90 will be targeted at MMO players and features a bank of 18 macro keys, along with an ergonomic full-sized wrist wrest. The K60, on the other hand, is aimed at FPS players and features a unique left-hand-only wrist wrest, as well as a set of optional contoured WASD keys. Both keyboards also boast a solid aluminium exposed chassis and up to 20-key rollover.

The FPS/MMO theme is continued with the two mice - the M90 and M60. The M60, which again is targeted at FPS players, features a special Sniper Mode button, which ratchets down sensitivity when pressed before returning it to normal levels when it’s released.

Meanwhile, the M90 is designed to team with the K90 for MMO players, and features nine macro buttons placed around the thumb area of the mouse. These, Corsair claims, have been placed to be intuitively easy to reach, but just far enough out of the way to avoid being pressed by accident when just browsing the Web. Like the keyboards, both mice feature an aluminium chassis, and they also have a 5,700dpi laser sensor.

In comparison to the mice and keyboards, the new headsets look fairly standard. There will initially be three SKUs in the range (the 1100, 1300 and 1500), each of which will be aimed at a different segment of the market.

The 1100 will be a behind-the-head-style headset, which is intended to be affordable while still offering good audio quality for those that don’t want to break the bank for a gaming headset. The 1300, on the other hand, offers a more premium design, with full circumaural ear cups and large 50mm drivers, which are powered through an analogue 3.5mm jack for those with a discrete sound card.

Finally, at the top of the new range is the 1500 which, like the 1300, is a full circumaural headset. It also brings Dolby Headphone 5.1 Surround Sound support to the party, though, along with a USB connection.

Are you on the lookout for a new gaming keyboard or mouse? Do any of the products Corsair has announced take your fancy? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.

I like the open design of the keyboard, it's cleaner ^^ But the FPS should have backlight too. Any review of those soon?

If these are as bad as the Corsair HS1 headphones then they loose me buying them straight away.

Worst headset I have ever bought and find my £20 Creative headset's far better for games, music and movies.

The keyboard for the FPS look's good with the wrist rest only for the left hand.

The only thing's I like from Corsair at the moment, is there ssd's, Ram and Case's (800D) but I do like that FPS Keyboard.

There cooler's are poor, well the ones I have used (H50 + H80).

Headphones lack bass and clarity given by a cheaper headset.

I'm eying the K90 just for those pretty pretty macro keys

They look great but 80 to 100 quid, no thanks.

What about gamers that play FPS and MMOs? Or even MMOFPS games? I would have liked to see the K100 that has everythign the K90 has plus the textured WASD keys.

u forgot PSU. :)

i personally want that mouse. but need to wait for more reviews..........

It'll be interesting to see what the picky mechanical keyboard community thinks of these keyboards. Contoured keys, backlighting, special wrist rests... does all of the attention to goodies come at the cost of reduced quality? Try to get your hands on some to review when they come out, Bit!

As for the mice... RAT and Naga anyone? :p
The_Beast 20th September 2011, 19:32 Quote
I wasn't really interested in the "sniper mouse" but now I kinda am. I used to snipe with no DPI adjustment and did ok, now that I have an MX518 I really like the lower DPI for more precision. However the placement it's all that great for switching between the two.


I'm still going to wait on the reviews before I even thing about the mouse or the keyboard.

I won't use Corsair PSU's in my pc after 5 blew up in the space of 1 month, taking out my full system luckily I had it on a surge protection socket that stopped it taking anything else out.

I now stick to Coolermaster PSU's as they have never failed me.

Don't know who Corsair asked to manufacture their new peripherals but the Vengeance 1100 kinda reminds me of the Logitech G330 headset but in blue instead of red...

cool story bro. my both 5 year old Hx620 and year old Ax850 had never missed a beat. you just have to buy Seasonic built units.

coming up next, Corsair monitor? that's the only peripheral they are missing.

Mine blew up a couple of days ago and killed my MB in the process :(

I would buy the FPS keyboard instantly if it had a red backlight. Seeing as it doesn't I'm just going to seriously consider it.

Well my Coolermaster 1kw psu that is in the pc I sold about 2 month's ago has been going strong since the day I bought 2x BFG GTX280's.

A OCZ PSU I had originally bought but was not powerful enough to run the card's together even though it was a 800w psu, worked in my dad's pc for about 2 years before that blew which was replaced with another OCZ and that went bang after 6 month's.

The only PSU's I have never had a problem with are Coolermaster.

My brother in law and grandad both use a Corsair PSU and they have been rock steady but I won't use them again, it's not nice trying to fight them to get £2k out of them to replace component's that were damaged when there psu went bang.

Well, that's no doubt a heap of money I'll be blowing then. Love the look of the 1100, M90 and K90. Have to see if my brother fancies buying my 'old' (read: not remotely old, or in need of replacement) gear.

Damn you Corsair and your sexilicous designs.

Those keyboards should be called the "Sex in aluminium and plastic" range.

Overclockers are listing the pre-orders now..

K60 keyboard: 99.99

K90 keyboard: 109.99

M60 mouse: 69.99

M90 mouse: 89.99

That is some serious money for a KB/mouse.. I imagine other places will be cheaper but the keyboard will still be 80-90 atleast.

Going to get the silver keyboard at some point though!
Ficky Pucker 22nd September 2011, 22:05 Quote
keyboard prices are pretty much normal and in line with other mech keyboards, but the M60 & M90 are overpriced imo.
Fizzban 22nd September 2011, 22:19 Quote
Well they were never going to be reasonably priced were they. Companies seem to think it is ok to throw together a few bits of plastic and charge the earth for them. You can get quality PSU's for less than some of those will cost. Go figure.

Go figure? If it is that easy to charge so much for so little then why aren't more companies doing it?

Lol they are. Look at how many companies are now in the gaming peripheral market. Look at the sponsors at the I-series.
longweight 15th December 2011, 10:25 Quote
Did anyone else pre-order the K60? I did and then cancelled it due to the delayed delivery. Since seeing the CPC review and reading a few online I am really glad I did, the fact that not all keys are mechanical has really put me off!

Going for a Filco Tenkeyless now I think....
