Choosing Your Gaming Peripherals Part 3

Gaming Keyboard

In the last part of our series, we’ve talked about choosing a perfect gaming mouse for yourself, and have had a couple of examples of gaming mice for every game out there. This time, however, we’ll talk about picking out a gaming keyboard for your setup. We’ve seen some of the most aesthetically attractive keyboards released over the last couple of years, but believe it or not, it’s not all about looks. So, let’s dive right into it.

Razer BlackWidow Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Honestly, you can’t go wrong with Razer’s products. Every single gaming peripheral they have released has proven itself on the gaming market. Same goes for their gaming keyboard BlackWidow. If you like that clicky sound of a mechanical keyboard, you will definitely like this one. It comes in 2 versions, the regular BlackWidow and BlackWidow Tournament (a smaller version without a numpad). It has 5 additional fully programmable keys for easier macroing ingame. This one, however, is not RGB, it’s a regular BlackWidow version, so if you’re not a fan of having a bunch of lights shining into your face, you’ll enjoy the BlackWidow.

Corsair’s gaming products have been insanely good so far, and with a decent price, which makes them one of the best gaming peripheral manufacturers in the world currently. It was no surprise when they released their K55 RGB gaming keyboard. Unlike many keyboards on today’s market, this one is not mechanical, but a regular one, with old-fashioned keycaps for maximum comfort and silence. It also features 6 additional programmable macro keys and a wrist rest for those long gaming sessions. In my opinion, it’s one of the more comfortable keyboards I have used, and I’m very satisfied with how it works and how it feels. And for those of you who prefer to have RGB keyboards, Corsair’s got you covered, this keyboard comes with its own software for setting up your RGB backlight.

Redragon K552 Kumara

Now, let’s go onto a bit more budget-friendly keyboards. Redragon’s Kumara RED LED gaming keyboard dominates the budget keyboard scene with it’s $34.99 price on Amazon. For that price, this masterpiece of gaming equipment sends other similarly priced keyboards down to the bottom of your budget build list. With Kumara’s ridiculously low price you’d probably expect low quality, right? Well, I did too, but it turns out that’s not the case with Redragon’s new gaming keyboard. It’s one of the smallest keyboards I have ever tried out, and it does the job if you’re looking for a budget mechanical backlit keyboard.
