Which gaming keyboard to buy? | Sector.sk

Since you spend hours or even days at the keyboard, it pays to choose the best. Finally, the choice of keyboard and mouse is one of the most important decisions of the PC player. In addition to being a convenience, these devices often influence his fate in games. Sometimes players don’t even know that a slow-response keyboard can mean a difference in reaction time and therefore death.

Features:

For keyboards, you need to look at several factors that affect its use.

  • Switch technology
  • Key response
  • Wired or wireless keyboard
  • Full keyboard, no numpad version, or mini
  • Media keys
  • Wrist pad

Switch technologies are now very diverse, where mechanical ones are practically the basis, but membrane technologies are also returning due to their silence and added hybrid technologies. The latest hiends are fast optical or analog, where the keys can behave like levers on a gamepad and according to the force of pressing. However, it is important to divide the switches themselves according to the response, where you have to choose according to whether you like switches with sound or tactile response, smooth or quiet.

In short:

  • Blue switches are zigzagging
  • Reds are linear and quieter
  • Brown are a compromise between Blue and Red with little response and resistance
  • Yellow linearly silent
  • Speed ​​is fast, quiet without much resistance

At the same time, with higher keyboards, look at the possibility of replaceable switches, where the switches last a long time, but it can happen that one of them breaks down and often you can just throw away the entire keyboard. Therefore, some higher models have the option to easily replace them.

It is good to look at the keyboard with a pad under the wrist, it is best soft to keep your hands resting in comfort. Some may also be comfortable with wifi, anyone with cable so that they do not have to deal with batteries, someone also wants a USB hub, or even a quick volume adjustment via a roller or a wheel above the numpad.

The basic versions of the keyboards are also full with the numpad on the right, but if you don’t use it and want a smaller keyboard, you can take the TKL versions, which are quite popular among players. Although often these smaller keyboards lose media keys and volume settings. Finally, there are mini versions, which usually lose the arrows and page up, down, insert keys.

What is the problem with gaming keyboards is the absence of localization. Most gamers don’t need it, but if you’d like it they have some cheap keyboards, or then logitech has hi-ends localized, but there’s about a 50 euro price increase.

Prices

As for prices, the cheapest are even under 70 euros basically have only a few zones of backlight, which can either not be changed or can be changed only to a limited extent, but if they have mechanical switches they are already quite good quality. You just have to be careful about the noise. Sometimes they are too loud.
