You don’t have to work with a computer long to realize that not all keyboards are created equal. Some keyboards offer horrible typing feel that makes using them tedious and adds time to your workday. Some keyboards also have strange key layouts that can make typing frustrating.

Gamers know that the cheap keyboard many computers ship with simply won't stand up to the needs of PC gamers. Junky keyboards suffer from ghosting, a phenomenon that rears its ugly head when you take your fingers off the WASD movement keys and your character keeps right on moving.

Today we are going to look at some of the best keyboards for gaming and general computer use. I'll specify when the keyboard is for gaming so no one gets confused. Even high-end keyboards that work well for general computer use often fail at gaming.

Logitech Illuminated Ultrathin Keyboard

I have been typing exclusively on the Logitech Ultrathin Illuminated keyboard since it debuted and it is hands down the best general use keyboard I have used. The backlighting is great and is a first for a non-gaming keyboard. The backlit keys are very easy to see in low light conditions and the keyboard has a very thin profile. The thin profile makes typing all day comfortable and the keys offer fantastic tactile feel and comfort. The only downside here for some will be that the keyboard is wired. This keyboard is well worth the money.

Logitech diNovo Edge Keyboard

If you abhor wires and are looking for a compact wireless keyboard that doesn't suffer from lag and is compact enough to use on a crowded desktop the Logitech diNovo Edge is the keyboard for you. The edge has full size keys placed into a compact design that is not only very attractive but just plain works. The typing feel is the best of any wireless keyboard I have used and the Edge features built-in track pad for controlling the mouse, making it an excellent keyboard for a media center PC. The Edge isn’t cheap and has been around for a while but it is still the best wireless keyboard around. However, if you really need a number pad the Edge lacks one.

Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000

If you have a repetitive stress injury from typing like carpal tunnel and are looking for an ergonomic keyboard, Microsoft makes some that are very good. The Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000 is a mouthful of a name, but the device features a split key arrangement that places the keys at an angle to put less strain on your wrists as you type. The split style keyboards have a bit of a learning curve before you can type on them as fast as a normal keyboard, but for those who are trying to prevent or work with carpal tunnel the learning curve may be worth it.

Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard

I mentioned before that gamers have different needs than the average computer user. The Logitech G15 is one of the best gaming keyboards on the market, the keyboard offers an LCD that shows information from compatible games and allows gamers to record macros on the fly without leaving their game. The keyboard offers good typing feel, though not on par with other general use keyboards. The G15 is a large keyboard with extra keys making it wider than normal so those with small desks may find it a tough fit. If you are a gamer looking for a keyboard that is great for gaming and can be used for general computer work as well the Logitech G15 fits the bill nicely.

Microsoft SideWinder X6 Gaming Keyboard

If you are the type of gamer that likes to bind lots of macros and commands to the number pad of your keyboard, but hates to have to take your hand off the mouse to execute the commands the SideWinder X6 is for you. The biggest feature of this keyboard is the number pad that can be placed on the right or left sides of the keyboard. The X6 can record lots of macros on the fly and supports automatic profile switching. The typing feel for the keyboard is decent and it can be used for general computer work. If the swappable number pad doesn’t float your boat, you can get better keyboards for gaming and general computer use.
