Keyboard Recommendations
« on: November 17, 2020, 04:26:57 PM »
I am in need of a new keyboard shortly here and looking for recommendations.

Couple I have been looking at are the Razer Huntsman Elite or Tournament Edition or the SteelSeries APEX Pro (haven't decided on going full keyboard or minus the number pad yet).

Hyper X has a fantactic line of peripherals (keyboards/mice/headphones/etc). THIS is my keyboard and I am super happy with it.

K100 by Corsair is also a good choice. Second the steel series. LOTS of RGB in the corsair line though if you're not into that

This is what I use. Brown switches are awesome, don't think I would ever go to a different switch type. Tactile without a loud click. Feels great for typing. I run aftermarket stealth keycaps with o-rings installed for less travel.

I love this keyboard. Being able to customize it the way I want is amazing. Worth checking into at the very least

Corsair K70, has some damn good features, and has modularity for custom orders on key switches and comfort pads

Haha I am kinda weird so I mixed my mouse and keyboard brands but what I have is a Logitech g502 mouse which I highly highly recommend. Ive had this mouse for maybe two years and it still functions as if it were brand new. As for my keyboard I would recommend the Corsair K95 as its pretty reliable at a decent price. In my opinion I don't like cheaping out on the mouse but when it comes to keyboards you can get away with something a little cheaper and it not affect you at all.

I have the logitech G910 Orion Spectrum, the romer g keys are very nice to use and you have plenty of macro keys available for binding.

I have a Logitech G915 and a couple of the older G905s around here. The G915 is nice because of the macro keys and it can run both wired and wireless but unless you find a sale on it the price is steep. I stumbled on Red Dragon a while back and there is one of their keyboards in the house and its really nice especially for price. https://redragonshop.com/collections/redragon-mechanical-keyboard/products/brahma-k586. One interesting thing about the Red Dragon board is that the configuration of the keys is stored in the board so it will work without drivers and supports Linux. Feel wise it is very nice. 

All the boards I see folks recommending are great options. One note about the Logitech G series and maybe this hasn't happened to others that have them but occasionally the software destroys my setup when it "updates" the drivers. I say updates but I watched it the last time it ran and it uninstalled and then installed the new version so it wasn't a patch and they don't seem to care it wipes out peoples configs. This can set you back for a couple of hours because there is no known way to back them up.
