Choosing a gaming keyboard is a matter of personal taste. To that point, there are a plethora of options, with a dizzying mix of features. One person could be into Cherry Browns and white backlighting. Another might favor Razer Greens and a rippling RGB glow. Gigantic wrist pads, compact shapes, numeric keypads, macro keys, volume controls.... You get the picture
To help you sort through the many options, weâ€™ve rounded up a large number of planks, putting them through their paces, to come up with our top recommendations. All of these are mechanical keyboards, and for good reasonâ€”theyâ€™re simply more comfortable to use over the long haul. But weâ€™re open-minded, so if we encounter an alternative that works well, you may see it appear on this list. Weâ€™ll keep updating it periodically as we test new keyboards.
