Available on Massdrop before anywhere else, the Creative Labs Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 Keyboard is designed with equal respect to ergonomics, precision, and looks—a devastating combo for any competitive gamer. Since its founding, Creative Labs has been dedicated to providing its customers with products based on community feedback—so the Massdrop community was the perfect place to launch. Made with responsive, custom-made OMRON mechanical switches, the 109-key Vanguard K08 is faster than standard keyboards. And because Creative Labs is letting us debut the keyboard, they will be hosting a contest in the Tech Community to see who has the best gaming setup, with some sweet prizes involved. Scroll down for more details.
Note: At checkout, you can purchase the Creative Sound BlasterX Siege Gaming Mouse for an additional (+ $29.99).
Thanks to the shorter actuation distance of 1.5 mm (most keyboards are 2 mm), the board allows you to move on to the next key 25-percent faster—which can be crucial in the heat of battle. The keycaps allow the backlighting to shine through—not to mention the switches will last up to 70 million lifetime keystrokes.
With a sleek, matte-black colorway, the Vanguard K08 appears to be all business out of the box. But once plugged in, it offers a wide array of color customizations to match your setup or change it up with something new. Set it to a soothing glow or go full rainbow cycle. The choice is yours. Plus, each key on the board is fully programmable, so you can program it according to your favorite games. You won’t have to worry about pressing multiple keys at once, either. With 26-key rollover, the Vanguard can keep up with even the fastest typists and gamers. It also comes with a removable attachment to support your wrists and can be height-adjusted to your liking.
With seven programmable buttons, a PixArt PMW 3360 optical sensor, and customizable RGB lighting, the Creative Labs Siege Gaming Mouse is fit for gamers of all kinds. It’s made with an ergonomic shape with fingerprint-resistant rubber for a secure grip when the going gets rough. Pair it with the Vanguard K08 keyboard to complete your setup.
