Is Corsair Cherry picking the switches on their keyboard in the name of Vengeance?

Corsair's Vengeance K90 has a refreshingly minimilistic and industrial design to it for a current high end keyboard.  A plain aluminium facing with a mix of mechanical and rubber dome switches, though they did include LEDs which can be activated for those who desire such things or perhaps prefer typing in utter darkness.  The lesser used keys like the function keys and ALT key are the lesser rubber dome switches while the common keys and the 18 macro keys all have mechanical switches.  Check out the full review at XSReviews.

"This keyboard, the Vengeance K90, is being marketed as being ideal for RTS and MMO gamers. With a heavy complement of macro keys and Cherry MX Red switches they’ve already made a good start, but will Corsair’s debut keyboard stand up to the competition? With Razer’s BlackWidow and numerous other mechanical keyboards beginning to flow from Western peripheral makers it’ll be a hard fight."

I've looked for a long time at all the gaming keyboards, and this is the best out there! At $100, a great value. Razer's are too loud, glossy, overpriced. The K90 is like an Audi...beautifully designed. The cherry red keys are pleasantly muted sounding. The classy aluminum is genius. Corsair did their homework and it shows! Very comfy to type with the long wrist support bar. Materials are premium. The most impressive mechanical keyboard I've ever used...and probably my last!
