What new keyboard should I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm thinking about getting a new keyboard, and I want a nice upgrade from my $2 keyboard from goodwill. I'm looking for a good mechanical keyboard, with the fancy customizable RGB. What's the best RGB mechanical keyboard for the price? Also what cherry MX keys should I get?

 

Is this a good one? It's the first thing that came up on amazon- https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Gaming-K55-Keyboard-Backlit/dp/B01M4LIKLI/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1508894222&sr=1-3&keywords=rgb+keyboard

Agreed.

[EDIT]

Although you never specified in the search "RGB keyboard" that it had to be mechanical...

it's not even mechanical.

Get Romer-Gs or Cherry MX Browns. But I'd try at least Blues, Browns, Reds, and Romer-Gs before buying.

I have romer-gs and browns (a g613 and g610, both good but no RGB.) The romer gs actuate faster and had a less pronounced tactile bump than the browns, and feel more like mush (to me.) Feels a bit like a cross between reds, browns and speeds.

Hi there! :)

 

A keyboard, mouse and a chair is somehting VERY personal. From hand shape to positioning...

 

My best tip? And what I personally did 6 months ago? Go to all the local stores that can have a good sort of keyboards (Mediamarkt and similars, I'm from sweden, so you you'll know your local vendors) and try them all.

Now if you want personal opinion my own keyboard is the Razer Blackwidow X Chroma.

And a keyboard that I like a lot is the Logitech G810 orion spectrum.

Good luck! :)
