Highlights: Wired/Detachable, Linear Travel Key switches, Magnetic-detachable palm rest, 8MB storage, RGB, 8k Hz Polling Rate

Key Switches: Cherry MX Red (Additional Switch options available)

The Corsair K70 RGB Pro is a full-sized mechanical gaming keyboard with Cherry Mx switches. Each key is individually lit and has a built-in RGB backlighting switch which is adjustable at the top left of the keyboard. If you want to get more into it, Corsair’s software offers more customization options for RGB lighting and macro settings. A nice feature that Corsair adds is an additional 8MB of onboard storage that can hold up to 50 different profile combinations. The latency is low and perfect for any type of gamer. If you are using this for competitions, the K70 has a tournament switch located at the top, which will disable the macros and set the RGB to a singular color to eliminate distractions. Corsair does not cheap out on the materials and brings a solid keyboard to the table so, if you're looking for something that's great all around, give the K70 a thought. If you think you like this keyboard but want something a little smaller, Corsair also offers the K70 model in a TKl edition.

Highlights: Dedicated media controls, integrated palm rest, adjustable feet, tactile mech-dome key switches, customizable LIGHTSYNC RGB lighting.

Key Switches: Tactile Membrane

If you're in the market for a membrane keyboard, you are generally going to be in for an entry-level, budget keyboard. The Logitech G213 Prodigy is one of the best membrane keyboards in its class compared to others like the Razer Cynosa Chroma or SteelSeries Apex 3. It offers an array of dedicated media keys, a Game Mode key, and an RGB on/off button. Inside, the membrane keys are designed to mimic mechanical switches. You'll find the style is slightly similar but the depth, action, and sound will give you the membrane feeling. The keyboard has a 5-zone RGB lighting setup that is fully customizable and boasts a 60ml spill resistance rating. Now, this keyboard is far from perfect but it gets the job done. One gripe we do have is that the wrist rest is nonremovable and the keyboard is rather large, taking up a good amount of desk space. The bottom line is if you are looking for an entry-level, everyday keyboard, we’d say the G213 Prodigy is a solid choice.


Best Wireless Gaming Keyboard: Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED: $249.99

Highlights: Low Profile, dedicated media controls, RGB LED, lag-free wireless, 30-hour battery, Bluetooth, per-key RGB lighting

Key Switches: Logitech GL: low-profile; tactile, linear or clicky

Wireless keyboards are one thing that isn't the first thing most go for. Generally, you’ll be looking for a wireless headset or wireless mouse. We understand if you're on the go or like to switch up a little, wireless gadgets stand above all. So, if your heart is set on a wireless keyboard, look no further. The Logitech G915 is a great addition to your wireless arsenal. With the Bluetooth and lightspeed connection, you can vary devices and switch locations to wherever you want. The battery life is quite good giving you around 30 hours of playtime. On the downside, you'll be required to spend a little bit more for this wireless tech at around $249.99. Logitech does offer a slightly cheaper version called the TKL version, which gets rid of the number pad and optimizes a smaller space. The Logitech G915 is sturdy and plated in brushed aluminum giving it a nice, fresh look. On the left side, you have 5 programmable macro keys and on the top right corner, you have an array of dedicated media controls. Located at the top, you have the LIGHTSPEED and Bluetooth connection as well as a few other cool features. The connectivity buttons allow you to switch between connected devices whether you want the high-performance LIGHTSPEED connection through the USB receiver, or through Bluetooth. Ultimately, if you are looking for wireless tech, the G915 Lightspeed is an amazing mechanical gaming keyboard that gives you the best wireless capabilities.

Key Switches: SteelSeries OmniPoint

SteelSeries brings customization to a whole new level with the Apex Pro TKL gaming keyboard. Each key can be individually adjusted to the sensitivity level you want. Adapt to each environment you're looking for, whether it's light or deep keypresses, the Apex Pro lets you choose and adjusts to your style. SteelSeries also claims their OmniPoint Switches are some of the fastest out there with a 0.7ms response time and only a 0.4mm actuation point. Sounds pretty nice right? It gets better. Not only can you choose your key style, but the Apex Pro also has an integrated command center with an OLED smart display for adjusting even more settings. Change your profiles, get keyboard status updates, save custom macros and control your prism effects all within the OLED display. Next to the display, you'll find a clickable roller. This function is integrated into the OLED display and allows users to navigate the settings within the keyboard. Adjust your brightness, rewind, skip, pause or even select your RGB lighting effects without having to use any additional software. Under the keyboard, a three-way cable routing system is built into the chassis to keep your setup looking fresh and cord-free. Inevitably, these features come with a price but it is definitely worth it. If you are a lover of customizable options and various features, give the SteelSeries Apex pro TKL a shot. It's sleek and sturdy and SteelSeries has some great features that stand out among other competitors.

Key Switches: Low-Profile Optical (Linear/Clicky available)

The Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro is one of the first low-profile gaming keyboards from Razer and it packs a serious punch. Its ultra-low profile and 1.2mm actuation distance make this keyboard a joy to use. With its lightning-fast connectivity, you can switch between Bluetooth 5.0 or the ultra-low latency Razer HyperSpeed wireless connection. This ability allows you to connect to multiple devices with the included dongle. For those of you worried about losing the dongle, fear not, Razer incorporated a dongle storage compartment directly underneath the keyboard. Keep it tucked away for easy storage if you happen to be traveling or switching up locations. At the top of the keyboard, we have a dedicated multi-function roller and media button. These buttons are configurable to allow pause, play, and skip functionality. You can even tweak your brightness and volume which is a nice little addition. As for quality, we see that Razer does not back down. Each keycap is Laser-Etched and coated with an ultra-durable coating that claims to be fade and scratch-resistant. The keyboard is cased in an ultra slim aluminum top plate and keeps a nice slim profile while still giving you great durability. At $249, this keyboard can be a tough decision. If you like Razer and are looking for something to fit the bill across the board, this keyboard makes a great first impression. The 40-hour battery life and multi-device capability are awesome. Price aside, the Deathstalker V2 Pro packs a lot of features, is well built, and fits any type of gamer.
