Gamer Looking for a Quiet Keyboard, Mouse and Accessories. Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, been a while since I came back on here asking for some help on things. So, as the title suggests I am looking for a quiet keyboard(as quiet as possible) but I am also a gamer so I would like it if there was RGB involved as well. Searching around is a nightmare because you have a huge amount of misinformation floating about so hopefully someone here can help me out. I am not very well informed on what switches or brands to look for so information is highly appreciated. Budget is $250 as I really don't mind spending a bit on one of the items I use the most considering I do computer work as well as gaming together. I need something that's going to last so I would assume Double Shot PBT keycaps would be preferred as well.

I am also looking for a good mouse. I play a huge wide range of gaming, pretty much everything except sports. I tend to use my mouse with a palm grip and have a pretty good sized hand so I really don't want a tiny mouse. RGB is welcomed I just want something that performs incredibly well and is built sturdy. Budget at $150 maximum

 

Additionally, a good comfortable padded wrist rest that looks good alongside a good mousepad as a gamer preferably in XXL size with a good looking aesthetic and good for a gamer who plays generally all kinds of gamers. I don't like the plastic pads or speed pads so I was looking more into the fabric kind of control pads of sorts. Insight, questions, and recommendations are appreciated.

I also play a wide range of games, which is why I actually have two mice.

 

Cooler Master MasterMouse MM710:

Great for FPS games, super light weight. the Glorious Model O and Model D are also good choices for this. They have different size and RGB options for those too I think.

 

Corsair Scimitar Elite:

A bit bulky and heavy, but generally great for everything else. Lot's of customizable buttons for macros. It's also useful for Windows and Browsers since you can map common keyboard shortcuts like ctrl+w and ctrl+shift+tab etc to buttons. I wouldn't get this unless you are going heavy on Corsair, though. ICUE is a lot to deal with for just one device.

Sorry moderator TVwazhere. Won't happen again. Thank you for fixing this.

I thought about the Glorious models but I was concerned about the holes in the back being uncomfortable or collecting dirt of sorts. Then again I would sooner go with the glorious mouse than I would that coolermaster as I like the way they look more.

Corsair Scimitar Elite:

It's a good recommendation but like you said its a lot to deal with also, I am not a big fan of all the side buttons less I can freely remove them of sorts which those appear to be firmly attached. Don't really need a huge amount of buttons as the main MMO I play with skill bars is just Final Fantasy 14, least for now until something else shows up.

My wife has a Glorious Model O- and she's pretty paranoid about this. I like bringing crumby food near her desk. She freaks out at me 🤣.

 

Valid concern, though. I haven't had it long enough to know if it will be a real problem.

Hopefully, I can get some good recommendations for this stuff I am looking for. The glorious mouse is a good idea, I am just unsure about it. Definitely could use some more help on this setup.

The most important thing about the mouse is the grip and shape for your hand.  If it's not comfortable and feels natural for you, even if it's a good mouse, you will have a hard time to perform well. 

 

Big hand and palm grip, razer balckwiddow comes in mind.  I have a rosewill m55 that about copy that shape and it's really not for me.  I prefer my logitech g305 which is smaller and really looks like an office mouse. 

 

you should watch some mouse roundup from rocket jump ninja, hardware cannuck, bad seed tech if I can suggest them. 

 

If you want some hole design mouse then glorious and cooler master have some good ones.  xtrfy m4 is quite nice too.  I haven't tried any of those personally but they were liked in the reviews I saw.
