Top gaming keyboard?

Recommended Posts

Depends on what kind of keyboard you like, micro, full, with macro keys or not, if RGB is a thing and so on...

 

there simply isn't an all around 'best' keyboard, just different tastes.

 

I personally use a Corsair K70 LUX RGB with MX Browns and really appreciate it.

I have this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01ER4B7YM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and im guessing same thing as yours? Worst purchase ever. the rgb keeps freezing and gives me 1 solid color. and the whole keyboard is freezing as well. I have to keep switching the bios button and sometimes that doesnt work either. i have to unplug and plug the usb cables. I tried a  lot of troubleshooting steps including reinstalling windows. I tried plugging in 3.1 usb didn't work either.

I personally would recommend the razer Blackwidow v2, solid keyboard

Basically anything from Logitech  I have had my G710 for over 5 years now and it looks the same as the day I got it minus a little dust. 

Also I believe @LinusTech still uses the same G710 that he has been using for years as well . Logitech makes long lasting durable products. I have had 3 keyboards in the past 13 years all were Logitech. My first was the G15, 510, 710.

Gaming keyboards arent that good, they usually have bad build quality. Get something like a ducky. But if youre dead set on getting a gaming keyboard then get something from cooler master

Was about to say that. First of all, ignore Corsair, Razer and Logitech suggestions. Then if you have to go gaming, look at CM. There is a good reason why CM is the only gaming manufacturer deemed worth looking at by the enthusiast community. If you really really really have to go all out on gaming, go something like CM MK 750. 


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

I had 1 Roccat, 2 Razers and 4 different Ducky mechanical keyboards. I'd take either of the ducky keyboards over all others any time of the day.

 

I can not recommend Ducky enough. They have all Chery MX switches there are and you can get full size with Speed Silvers, which are currently my favourite switches, for around 100€ and TKL Versions with awesome RGB for about 120€. If you REALLY need the best RGB I recommend the Shine series from them, best RGB ever! But they are quite expensive at about 200€.

 

Also do not bother with Razer, the Green switches are ok, like the Chery Blues, but the rest is not good at all. My GF bought a Black Widow Chroma and the whole middle part of the RGB lighting broke after half a year.


My Setup:
Asus Strix RTX 2080
i7 8700k @4.9GHz - NZXT x72
G.SKILL Trident Z 3466
Asus Maximus X Hero
Samsung 840 PRO (Windows)
Samsung 860 EVO 1TB (Games)
Samsung 860 EVO 500GB (Stuff)
Seagate Expension Desk 4TB (Shadowplay and Backups)
Corsair RM-850X
ROG SWIFT PG258Q  240hz
G Pro Wireless / Divina S1 Pink
Ducky One 2 TKL RGB Speed Silver / Ducky One Pink & White
