If you do anything on your PC, literally, anything you will need a keyboard and mouse, depending on what you are doing on your PC you might be better suited to wireless or wired, you might want RGB, you might not. There are so many different options and customisations to choose from you might sometimes find yourself scratching your head…not to mention the difference between mechanical keyboards and membrane…
1. Corsair K95 RGB Platinum with optical gaming mouse
- Great build quality
- Extra set of keycaps
- Takes up allot of valuable desk space
If you want to go the extra mile to improve your PC gaming then this is the best of the best, while it takes up allot of space it also has every feature imaginable, it has dedicated media controls and a USB pass-through, a metal volume wheel and RGB lighting. it even comes with an extra set of textured keycaps forn WASD keys, just in case you don’t like the already premium quality keycaps it comes with.
The mouse it comes with (included in the price, don’t worry) has 12 number buttons perfectly placed where your thumbs rest and a 16000 DPI optical sensor.
2. Hyper X Alloy Elite RGB with the RGB pulsefire gaming mouse
- Great feature set
- Relatively affordable
- Excellent range of cherry MX switches
- Software needs some work
For a board lit up in 16.9 million colours, the HyperX Alloy Elite sports a relatively simple aesthetic while still packing the features we expect out of a quality gaming keyboard. It comes with a choice of Cherry MX Brown, Blue, and Red switches.
The mouse is lightweight and has 2 customisable buttons on the left, it has a 16000 DPI optical sensor and is rated for 50,000 clicks.
3. Razer Cynosa Chroma
- Best feeling membrane keys available right now
- Per key RGB lighting
- Lacks extra features
If even mecha-membrane keys don’t suit you and you want a fully membrane typing/gaming experience, the Cynosa is the deck for you. It has some of the best feeling, low profile membrane keys ever, and at a retail price of ?49.92 is one of the most affordable gaming keyboards out there.
Razer Huntsman Elite
- Fastest key actuation ever
- perfect keyboard layout
- Requires 2 USB ports for power
- Very expensive
It is hard to go wrong with a Razer keyboard, they are a well-known gaming brand and that is for a reason.
Corsair K63 wireless keyboard
- Solid wireless connection
- Slightly expensive
- Wristwrest is flimsy
This is a great keyboard for if you are a couch gamer, but most people who play on PC aren’t. It is a solid keyboard, but its price is a bit high for what it does, drop it down by ?20 and it would be a solid gaming accessory.
Out of these keyboards, there is one for everyone, whether you like your room to look like an 80s club due to all the RGB or you just like the feel of a specific keyboard, there is a great selection here.
