Our favourite gaming keyboard is real cheap again

This time last month, my champion, the Fnatic Streak had its price chopped in half. It sold out almost instantly, but the good news is that it's now back in stock at the lovely reduced price of £75 for the Cherry MX Brown version and £85 for the Cherry MX Red model, saving you around a third off its usual price of £120.

Corsair’s new K95 XT keyboard has built-in Elgato Stream Deck controls

Ever since the streaming bods over at Elgato were subsumed into Corsair's giant PC peripherals basket back in 2018, I've been waiting for the inevitable mash-up moment where both companies collide in a single bit of hardware. Finally, that time has arrived, as Corsair unveiled a new version of their top-end K95 Platinum keyboard at CES earlier this week that has built-in support for Elgato's…

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 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 for the last month…

XPG’s first Cherry MX keyboard is a comfy beaut

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…

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 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 itself.

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 , the age-old wisdom of the internet hivemind will often say, 'Mechanical or bust, mate.'

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…
