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…

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…

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.

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…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018: Best gaming mouse and keyboard deals

There's not long to go now before this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals jamboree draws to a close, so if you've been holding out for a top notch gaming mouse and keyboard deal, now is the time to get one. In truth, there aren't that many new Cyber Monday mouse and keyboard deals going on today, as many are still the same price…

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…

Razer Cynosa Chroma review: A step up for membrane gaming keyboards

Who says the [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"] has to be a mechanical one? Razer's Cynosa Chroma has been stuck on my desk for a couple of weeks now and hoo boy have I given it a baptism of fire, as this ended up being the keyboard I used to put together my Monster Hunter: World graphics performance article. Yep, I've murdered hundreds of Great…

Razer Huntsman review: Opto-mechanical goodness

If you like your clacky keyboards, Razer's new Huntsman is going to be right up your street. This thing is LOUD. Much louder, I'd say, than any other keyboard I've tested so far, and I'd probably even go as far as saying it's clickier and clackier than the Cherry MX blue switches found in mechanical keyboards like the Fnatic Streak and HyperX Alloy Elite. This…

Corsair K68 RGB review: A spill resistant keyboard that only wants to get its toes wet

We've all done it. I've even ruined a rather expensive gaming laptop doing it. And yet, I still keep a long, tall glass of water on my desk every day (not to mention multiple mugs of tea) because I'm an idiot who can't learn from her own mistakes. Right next to my keyboard. One accidental swipe of my arm, or a mad dash across my…

Week in Tech: All Hail The Mighty Mechanical Keyboard

Mechanical keyboards. What, dear readers, is the schitnitz? Dare I say it, there is such a thing as the mechanical keyboard movement. Indeed, we're now at the point where there's significant debate within that community over various types of mechanical keyboard switches. Knowing your Cherry MX Red from your Blue and Brown absolutely matters. But what exactly is a mechanical keyboard, why is it rapidly…
