I would like to know what type of gaming keyboards you are using. I want to buy a new one for my gaming PC. Wireless would be nice, but cable is also ok.
Any experience with super dedicated gaming devices like Cyborg V7 keyboard?
All hail the Axelords
haha keyboads! gotta love 'em! I recommend a wired keyboard personally, because you can have more extra functions, extra buttons, etc and you don't need to change the battery.
I am going to assume around €70-€120 more or less as a budget since that more or less the range of a decent quality gaming keyboard.
Logitech G510 Link:
the pricing varies a lot on this one, the logitch site says 125 € but i have seen it in stores for 99€,
so if you find a good deal on it it's worth it.
-it has a multi function backlit screen with a bunch of game-specific apps for around 200+ games
-18 programable G-Keys that you can set as a specific function in any game or program, as well as multimedia keys and your choice of color for the keyboard back lighting.
also the G110 is basically the same keyboard as the G510, but with 12 G-Keys and no screen, listed at 82€ but im sure you can get it cheaper if you look around online.
as you said the Cyborg V7 is a pretty good keyboard which you can get anywhere from 50-90€, cyborg makes really nice gear, i have a cyborg rat7 mouse and it really kicks ass.
i'd recommend any of those 3 keyboards i mentioned, though really any logitech gear is high quality, and from my experience cyborg stuff is great too. so basically go for best price, then best looks (its gotta look slick to go along with dat badass gaming rig! ;) )
I use a Filco with MX Cherry Brown switches. I am never going back to basic rubber dome keyboards ever again. Mechanical switches feel so much better, so I'd at least recommend you try one. There are loads of switch types too, black, red, brown, blue, clear, so odds are you will find one you like. They are on the expensive side though, but the build quality is good and they will last forever. My Filco is just a tad under 1 kg and built like a tank.
I use the Microsoft Sidewinder X4. I do not use the programmable hot keys at all, but the lit keys are invaluable. And I like the haptics when typing. It also was "only" 40 Euro.
I have the Logitech G105 MW3 edition. I'm pretty pleased with it, but I had to scratch the dumb MW3 logo off :D
lol i had one of those for 5 years haha great keyboard
I read that Logitech is leaving the gaming peripheral business. So maybe another brand is the right thing. Who knows who buys that business from Logitech.
i got the brand new logitech g710+ mechanical gamming keyboard and the best i've ever owned and used. I had borrowed my friends razor black widow and I think the logitech is much better has white led back lit and you can set the intensity or just have wasd lit up plus it has a usb for a joystick or thumb drive built in aswell as media buttons (pause, play etc) and a roller for the volume control with a mute button plus programmible buttons also for being mechanical its actually quit if you dont like the clicky sounds of them but its rated for 50million button presses and if you need to clean it you can run it in the dish washer let dry for a week and its good as new (yes i have done it myself and with many other keyboards and mouses). it was also maximum pc's keyboard pic.
I personaly dont see the need for a gaming keyboard unless you plan to game profecionaly...if you whanna play games for fun this is like throwing money to the wind... all you need is a generic keyboard/mouse wired(wireless can be a real pain especialy if you play multiplayer games),friction ducktape and a marker with thin point and the opposite color of the friction ducktape :D
