Razer BlackWidow Chroma Clicky Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Editor’s pick)

Product prices and availability are accurate as of the 2017-03-26 at 12:48 and are subject to change. Any price and availability information displayed on Amazon at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product.

This is a model in the same family as the Blackwidow ultimate, but with a few added features.This model features only Razer brand switches specifically designed with gaming in mind and built to withstand the test of time and regular use.

It offers all the same customization abilities as its cheaper cousin, but also offers various colorings including an Overwatch themed color with the game logo in lights along the top right corner making this model great for an Overwatch fan.

This model also expands greatly on the already fantastic macro support on the Blackwidow model family. It also sports a USB pass through option meaning you can plug a mouse directly into the keyboard to send all signals at once and better manage cords.

This model fantastically sets the stage for higher end mechanical keyboards and what to expect from them.

Pros
  • Expansive customization options
  • Durability and ergonomic design with gaming in mind
  • Relatively low price considering features list
Cons
  • Similar to other Blackwidow listed, there are differing options for each model, and this model may be missing an earlier feature that was useful
  • Razer custom switches are different and may take getting used to or may just be unsatisfactory to personal tastes

 

Corsair STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Product prices and availability are accurate as of the 2017-03-26 at 11:08 and are subject to change. Any price and availability information displayed on Amazon at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product.

As with the previous listed Corsair Strafe type model this keyboard sets a standard for its price range entirely. Customizable colors, the popular Cherry brand switches, and the included wrist rest are just to name a few more popular features included.

You are able to choose from several different switch colors with varying resistance and other small but important differences in the keys. It also sports a more modest design, but isn’t so plain it looks like a completely average keyboard at a glance.

The modest keyboard is one of the highest quality on the list and is difficult to really have negatives for considering the amount of options available for getting a model to suit your exact needs. Mainly the keyboard is a bit harder to find for purchase which is its biggest drawback so far.

Pros
  • Expansive customization options to fit every person’s individual needs
  • Included detachable wrist rest adds a layer of comfort to the already ergonomic design
  • Modest design leaves developmental focus to the features, and this is very apparent
Cons
  • Currently a bit difficult to find one for sale
  • Each model is not extremely customizable once purchased, all these decisions have to be made before ordering

 

Logitech RGB G810 Orion Spectrum Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Product prices and availability are accurate as of the 2017-03-26 at 12:48 and are subject to change. Any price and availability information displayed on Amazon at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product.

This particular model is very similar in descriptions to the Blackwidow Razer in the same price range. This model also utilizes custom switches that may be a little unfamiliar to anyone who is accustomed to the standard Cherry brand or the various clones of the brand.

The switches are however designed to be optimized for a gaming experience, and the board features the macro customization and LED customization similar to most of the models on this list.

With that said the Logitech doesn’t have any particular stand out features, it is fairly priced for its level of quality and feature list.

Logitech is a decently well known brand, and if they are typically your first choice then the keyboard would most likely suit your needs, but it would be best to try this model out before investing the price into something you may not be completely sure about.

Pros
  • Customizable LEDs, and Macros
  • Fair price considering the quality
  • Features most capabilities of other keyboards in the same class without sacrificing in any category
Cons
  • No stand out features to make it truly unique
  • Even falling into our highest price category it does not include a wrist rest when most other models at a similar price do

This model features the Cherry MX Red switches, which are considered by many to be the pinnacle of gaming optimization.

This means the keyboard is extremely responsive, allows for multiple key presses at once without input confusion, and has some of the fastest transmission to your PC of any keyboard available and it does all of this almost silently.

This model also boasts aircraft grade materials and design and sports a wrist rest with an ergonomic design to deliver one of the most comfortable typing and keyboarding experiences possible.

The board also doesn’t skip in the customization category providing a software program to customize the LED backlight of each key individually or by programming a light show into your keyboard for some absolutely beautiful effects.

This is one of the best keyboards available and does hit a little heavy on the price tag, so if you’re not looking for the highest end model this may be more than you need.

Pros
  • Extremely durable build extends longevity of the board greatly
  • Lots of customization options, specifically an entire program for controlling the board’s LEDS
  • Long list of top notch features such as the USB pass through option
