Best gaming keyboard 2019: Top mechanical and membrane picks

Trying to find the best gaming keyboard is an exercise often fraught with questions. Not only have you got to decide whether you want to get a membrane gaming keyboard or a mechanical gaming keyboard, but if you end up going down the mechanical route, you've then got to pick what kind of mechanical switch you want, too, which can affect everything from the speed…

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.

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…

HP Omen Sequencer review: The king of keyboard volume rollers

HP Omen seem to be going all in on optical mechanical peripherals this year, as they've not only gone and stuck a bunch of light beams in their Omen Reactor gaming mouse, but their new Omen Sequencer keyboard is absolutely chock full of them. The idea is to give both of them lightning fast response times, as the lack of moving parts means that each…

HyperX Alloy FPS RGB review: Move over Cherry, it’s Kailh time

Cast your eye over our [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"] list and you'll find most, if not all, of my top mechanical picks are based around Cherry's excellent MX switches. That's probably not surprising given that Cherry are one of the biggest and most reliable names in keyboard circles, but HyperX's new Alloy FPS RGB makes a strong case for trying something a little bit…

MSI Vigor GK40 review: Membranical meets RGB

Let's face it, we all fear change and spending lots of money, which is probably why many of us still play games on cheap, squidgy membrane keyboards instead of sharp, expensive clicky-clacky mechanical ones. There's nothing wrong with membrane keyboards, of course, but they're not always best-suited to faster-paced games that require nice, quick and responsive finger-tapping. As a result, a good way of dipping…
