Corsair, a worldwide designer of high-performance PC gaming hardware, today announced the addition of four gaming keyboards and two gaming mice to the company's Vengeance and Raptor Gaming lines.

Vengeance K70 Gaming Keyboards - Now with Cherry MX Brown or Cherry MX Blue Key Switches. In March, Corsair released the Vengeance K70 fully mechanical gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Red key switches designed for gamers who prefer a hair trigger key response. To meet the demand of users who prefer a different key feel, Corsair has expanded the K70 line to include two new versions equipped with Cherry MX Blue and Cherry MX Brown key switches. Both switch types require slightly more finger pressure to trigger and provide a more distinct tactile feel, with the Cherry MX Brown switches providing a less audible click.
Both of the new Vengeance K70 keyboards versions are housed in a rugged, brushed, gun-metal anodized aluminum chassis and have individually programmable blue backlighting for each key. Like all Vengeance K70 keyboards, the new models feature dedicated media keys as well as a 100% anti-ghosted matrix, full key rollover and a 1000Hz reporting rate for fast, accurate input for gaming.



Vengeance K65 Compact Mechnical Gaming Keyboard
Designed for gamers on the go or with limited desk space, the Vengeance K65 is the most compact high-performance fully mechanical gaming keyboard in Corsair's arsenal. By omitting the numpad and maintaining full-size key spacing, Corsair minimized the Vengeance K65's footprint without compromising typing comfort. The keyboard features Cherry MX Red key switches for a smooth, linear key response and ultra fast reaction times. The Vengeance K65 has a 100% anti-ghosted matrix, full key rollover, a 1000Hz reporting rate for rapid input without dropping critical keystrokes. The keyboard comes with a detachable cable for easy packing.

Raptor K50 Gaming Keyboard with RGB Backlighting
The Corsair Raptor K50 gaming keyboard combines a comfortable membrane key feel, onboard macro storage, 100% anti-ghosting with full-key rollover on USB, and 16.8 million color customizable backlighting to create a precision gaming keyboard that can be customized for specific games, tactics, and playing styles. The keyboard features 18 programmable gaming keys and three banks for up to 54 macros that can be stored in the keyboard's built-in memory. The Raptor K50 also has six dedicated multimedia keys for convenient music and video playback and a Windows lock key for uninterrupted game play.

Raptor M40 Gaming Mouse
The Corsair Raptor M40 gaming mouse is designed for gaming performance. It features a powerful gaming-tuned Avago ADNS-3090 4000 DPI optical sensor, fast response time, large PTFE glide pads, high-mass scroll wheel all housed in comfortable right-handed design with a textured, soft-touch surface. The Raptor M40 also has an adjustable weight system and seven programmable buttons with macros and for critical gaming functions. In addition, instant DPI switching allows gamers to swiftly toggle between high sensor resolution for fast motion, and low resolution for super-accurate aiming.

Raptor M30 Gaming Mouse
Corsair Raptor M30 gaming mouse is designed for performance, and features a game-tuned Avago ADNS-3090 4000 DPI optical gaming sensor, extra-large PTFE glide pads, and fast response time for superior control and deadly accuracy. The mouse's six buttons enable one-click access to critical game functions, and on-the-fly DPI switching with a DPI LED indicator let gamers instantly switch to a lower sensor resolution for amazing long-range weapon accuracy. The right-handed design also has a soft-touch finish, a rubber thumb grip and a low-friction braided cable.

they really should release a mechanical keyboard with Brown key switches.

EDIT: Oh shit my ability to not read kicked in again, and just missed the statement saying the K70 will have MX Browns now.

I got my m60 for $25 on a newegg shell shocker sale, and have seen them on sale for $45 on sale a few times. Guess that wont happen anymore.

Why so little love for the tenkeyless users?
Nearly all tenkeyless keyboards are budget keyboards, but it's not like if we don't have space on our desktop or we don't want a full size keyboard, we don't want features like backlit keys and different switches.

They finally make a TKL board and they remove the features that made their boards interesting...How is Corsair's peripheral division this slow on the uptake? They are by far the most oblivious product developers I've ever witnessed.

Agreed. TKL without detachable rest pad and multimedia keys (that includes volume regulation) is a no go for me.
