HELP High Quality Keyboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I finally managed to save up enough for a great keyboard. Budget 110 dollars 120 (preferably not). If its extremely worth it 130.

Braided Cable

Mechanical BLUE or BROWN

All gamer features like low latency and full n key rollover 

Software Control

Wrist rest

RGB

Full Size

Not too many bezels around the top right and left so it has a smaller footprint.

Build Quality

This one looks nice but I cant find it anywhere.

Someone will probably jump in and say I am wrong, although imo anything from Corsair or Logitech should be good.

I dont really like the corsair switches. Never tried logitech but they dont have much in the rgb mechanical department. Their mice are great tho

Corsair uses cherry switches which like every other mechanical keyboard company uses as well.

 

Also be mad at me all you want but I honestly don't get all this RGB business.

This is a negative. On board programmable is superior, and fully programmable is gold.  

I dont like onboard programmable and fully programable keyboards use software comtrol most of the time.

No they don't. Fully programmable keyboards are driver-less. You program them by building and loading a new firmware.

Well I cant edit macros and stuff without a software based keyboard and the software is usually just somuch simpler. Anyway, can you reccomend any keyboard?

Macros and stuff is kind of the whole point of of a fully programmable (that and not having to have run janky software in the background) and you can to so pretty crazy stuff beyond simple macros.

Not with the feature set you want or at the price. The keyboards I tent to use are 60% and are in the 200 to 300 dollar range.

 

I guess look into Cooler Master and Ducky.

yea, no. "Gaming Keyboards" from filthy greedy manufacturers that use low quality parts and sell it for high prices with minimal costs are that much...

those will break in a year or two if you dont use it "rarely" or with extra "caution".

 

A real quality mechanical Keyboard is 200$+ and lasts 10years+ no matter how hard you abuse it.. within "normal use" (xD)

Based on your description, Corsair K70 or Strafe are good options, but depending on where you buy the price may be out of your budget by a bit.

Hope you find the one you're looking for!
