The Ducky One 2 isn’t perfect, but it’s still one of the best keyboards I’ve ever used

I'm just going to come out and say it. The Ducky One 2 is probably one of the [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"]s I've ever used. It's available in a range of sizes and numerous different key cap colours, including a tenkeyless version, a 65% model and the even dinkier Ducky One 2 Mini, but it's the full-sized RGB model I've had on my desk…

Razer resurrect their classic RGB mouse mat (along with some spoooky deals)

Razer have brought their original FireFly RGB mouse mat back from the dead today, making it brighter and thinner than ever before. Indeed, Razer say the FireFly V2 is now the brightest RGB mouse mat in their entire line-up of rainbow-trimmed surfaces, thanks in no small part to its 19 lighting zones. The £50 / $50 hard mat also has a built-in cable catch to…

Feature: I do love a good wrist rest

XPG’s first Cherry MX keyboard is a comfy beaut

Adata's XPG line may be better known for its RAM and SSDs, but their first Cherry MX gaming keyboard sure knows how to make a good first impression. Not only does it have a wonderfully tactile volume wheel in the top right corner, but it also comes with a plush, detachable wrist rest that snaps onto the lower edge of the keyboard thanks to some…

Best gaming keyboard 2019: Top mechanical and membrane picks

With so many great keyboards to pick from these days, finding the best gaming keyboard for you and your budget can be tricky. First, you've got to figure out whether you'd rather save some money and get a cheap membrane-based one, or maybe splash out a bit and get a mechanical one instead. However, even if you do decide to go down the mechanical keyboard…

Logitech G915 Lightspeed review: Wireless keyboard perfection

Spending over a hundred quid on a keyboard is a big ask at the best of times, which is partly why half the entries currently populating my [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"] list all come in well below that. Over two hundred quid, though? That's positively extortionate. But man alive does the £210 / $250 Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless make an incredibly strong case for…

Feature: Or is it a beech to use?

Will you pine for this wooden mechanical keyboard?

Most gaming keyboards that clack their way onto my desk usually fall into one of two categories. They're either great big hulking plastic things, or they're equally large slabs of hard-edged metal. They do not make my fingers smell like a forest, nor do they double up as handy, alpine air fresheners. In these respects, Unick Invent's new, ultra-compact Woo-dy keyboard is entirely unique.

HP Omen’s ear-cooling gaming headset returns as the even more brilliantly named Mindframe Prime

By far one of the best hardware announcements to come out of last year's Gamescom was HP's ear-cooling Omen Mindframe headset. The name was just pure, unbridled brilliance, and its chilly, sweat-blasting thermoelectric ear cups were novel and worked surprisingly well in practice, even if its suspension-style headband didn't quite hold up comfort-wise once I got one in for review. Now, the Mindframe is back…

HyperX Alloy Core RGB review: A great entry-level membrane gaming keyboard

When it comes to finding the world's [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"], the age-old wisdom of the internet hivemind will often say, 'Mechanical or bust, mate.' Heeding such advice, however, would be to ignore the many great (and not to mention considerably cheaper) membrane gaming keyboards out there at the moment, such as our current best membrane champ, the Razer Cynosa Chroma, and today's test…

We need to talk about Rage 2’s keyboard controls

Rage 2 is very almost here on PC, but for a game half-developed by Doom maestros id Software, there is something really quite rotten about the state of Rage 2's default keyboard controls. For as well as having an arsenal of mildly ridiculous guns at your disposal, you also have various special abilities to help you in the heat of battle, such as the sonic…

Asus TUF Gaming K5 review: All hail the mech-brane

You've heard of membrane keyboards. You've heard of mechanical keyboards. You've probably even heard some keyboards described as 'membranical', which (aside from being a crime against the English language) are the kind of hybrid gaming keyboards you might consider buying if you're unsure whether to go full CLACK with a proper mechanical one. The Asus TUF Gaming K5 falls into this latter category, although Asus…

Fujitsu Realforce R2 review: Capacitive gaming keys have arrived (sort of)

Fujitsu probably isn't the first name you think of when it comes to gaming peripherals. Heck, you've probably only heard of them if you're a srs bsns type working at a very corporate tech company, and even then that might be stretching it a bit. But the reason I'm nattering on about Fujitsu today is because they recently helped keyboard switch maker Topre bring their…

Roccat Sova review: The ultimate lapboard

There are many things I like about working from home, but having to play games in my office at the weekend because that's where my gaming PC lives isn't one of them. Instead, I want to be downstairs playing games in our living room, where I've got easy access to the kettle / biscuit tin and can actually spend some time with my husband and…

Razer’s new budget Essential series are all still kinda expensive

Razer have announced a new budget-conscious series of 'Essential' peripherals today in the hope of bringing their popular Basilisk, Kraken and Blackwidow ranges of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets to even more people enamoured with mythological creature names than ever before - although judging by their actual prices, you'd be forgiven for thinking they're just as expensive as everything else.

Feature: Bloody awful

Bloody Gaming B390 review: Oh dear…

A third tenkeyless gaming keyboard in a week? Well, I never. This time, it's Bloody Gaming's B930, which uses optical RGB switches not unlike the Razer Huntsman for even nippier keystrokes and reduced latency. Unfortunately, Razer's Huntsman could probably scoff the B930 down in a single gulp, for this is definitely not [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"] material.

Corsair K83 Wireless review: Your new lapboard replacement?

Wireless gaming keyboards can be great for decluttering your desk, and to a certain extent even a passable tool for playing games in the living room - provided you don't mind balancing a hard mouse mat on your knee, that is. There are, of course, also full-blown lapboards for those of us who'd rather kick back on the sofa than sit up at our desks…

Tecware Phantom RGB review: A good first mechanical keyboard for under £50 / $50

Tecware might not be the first name you think of when it comes the bestest [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"]s money can buy, but their mid-range Phantom RGB sure is a heck of a lot cheaper than a lot of its competition - just £46 / $46 for the 87-key tenkeyless version I've got on test here today (it's also available as a full-size model…

Roccat Vulcan review: A stunning mechanical keyboard that’s fast and tactile for gaming

After testing dozens upon dozens of mechanical gaming keyboards based around Cherry's admittedly excellent MX switches, the new and very non-Cherry MX-based Roccat Vulcan is a breath of fresh air. Employing the company's brand-new Titan switches (or Titan Switch Tactile to give them their full and proper name), the Vulcan offers fast and precise, tactile feedback for typing and gaming alike, and looks pretty damn…

Steelseries Apex M750 review: Two left feet

As you may have noticed over the last year or so, I've tended to quite like Steelseries' PC peripherals. Two of their mice currently occupy top spots in my [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"] list, and their Arctis 7 headset is my favourite bestest [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] of all time. Their top-end Apex M750 keyboard, however, won't be making any kind of [block…
