Keyboard Buyer's Guide

If you are a PC gamer that is playing on the old stock keyboard that came with your computer, you might want to consider adding a new keyboard to your wish list. The new gaming keyboards can make your game better by allowing you to input more simultaneous commands. For instance, I used to have a keyboard that worked ok most of the time for gaming. However, in FPS games when I would try to move diagonally (requiring the W and A keys) while jumping things wouldn’t work right because the keyboard couldn’t handle that many inputs at once. Another problem you might encounter on keyboards not up to gaming is when you hold down the W key or other movement key, the keyboard keeps repeating the keystroke even after you release it.

I have never used a gaming keyboard that had any problem like those, so if you are having issue it’s time to go shopping. You can get gaming keyboards from basic models to those decked out with LCD screens and backlit keys. This shopping guide will cover some of the best gaming keyboards I have used and many of them on the list will work well for most gamers. If you aren’t a gamer and simply want a new keyboard to make your daily computer work more comfortable and efficient the keyboards here will work for you too. Dedicated gaming keyboards will be marked with gaming and general use keyboards will be marked general.

The new G15 is smaller than the original G15 and has less macro capability. For many gamers the smaller size more than makes up for the reduced macro availability. For those who don’t care about the size of their keyboard and want as many macros as possible can still find the original G15 online until supplies run out.

Razer Tarantula Gaming Keyboard (Gaming)

One f the best gaming keyboards on the market is called the Tarantula from Razer. The Tarantula has great typing feel making it great for gaming and general computer work. The Tarantula lacks completely backlit keys, which might be a big issue for some gamers. The tarantula does have macro programming capabilities and profiles can be saved to onboard memory for use on computers without software.

Logitech diNovo Edge (General)

The Logitech diNovo Edge keyboard is one of the best keyboards for typing feel that I have used. The super thin profile of only 11mm makes it very comfortable in use. The Edge is also a great keyboard for your media center computer thanks to the long wireless range and the built in touch pad to control the mouse. The only possible downside to the Edge is for those who use the num pad a lot, which the Edge lacks

Apple Wireless Keyboard (general)

If you are a Mac head, the Apple Wireless Keyboard may be the keyboard of your dreams. Like the Edge, the Apple keyboard doesn’t have a num pad. Like most thing Mac, the keyboard is a minimalist design with only what you need. Tiny is a good word for the Apple Wireless keyboard with a super thin profile that makes the Edge look portly. If your Mac doesn’t have Bluetooth you are out of luck, no dongle ships with this keyboard.
