If you are one of the PC gaming elite then you need to make sure that your PCs peripherals are just as elite.
Thankfully, we have created this list to help you find that elite option, with a range of keyboards to choose from, we are going to let you know about what we consider to be the best keyboards for gamers in 2017.
Check them out below.
Logitech G413 Carbon
The Logitech G413 Carbon is one of the newer keyboards on this list. It’s a wireless mechanical keyboard that doesn’t come with customisable macro keys or RGB backlighting (although it does have red backlights), in favor of a lower price tag and smaller form-factor. Despite that, it’s a pretty nice keyboard with a magnesium-alloy body and Logitech Romer-G switches.
G.Skill Ripjaws KM570
The G.Skill Ripjaws KM570 is a mid-range gaming keyboard for the avid gamer that’s on a slight budget, but even with that budget it features Cherry MX switches with red backlighting on top.
SteelSeries Apex M500
If you have a slightly lower budget than you might be more interested in the SteelSeries Apex M500, which doesn’t attempt to draw you in with unnecessary features, opting for a compact and clean design.
Das Keyboard Division Zero X40
The Division Zero X40 from Das Keyboard is one of those keyboards that definitely attempts to draw you in with its design, but also with some great features, including linear Alpha-Zulu switches engineered by Das Keyboard themselves, along with n-key rollover, golden contacts, programmable macro keys, dimmable LED backlight and more.
Cougar Attack X3 RGB
If you need some more colour and lighting in your life then you should check out the Cougar Attack X3 RGB, which is a solid keyboard that has been built using aluminum and features Cherry MX Black, Brown, Red or Blue keyswitches and 16.8 million colour RGB lighting.
Cherry MX Board 6.0
Cherry build some of the best keyswitches in the market, which are used by many of the keyboard that we previously mentioned, but Cherry also makes their own keyboards, the flasgship of which is the Cherry MX Board 6.0, which has an aluminum housing, red LED backlighting and the claim to being the fastest keyboard in the world.
SteelSeries Apex M800
The SteelSeries Apex M800 also claims to be the world’s fastest keyboard, with SteelSeries’ QS1 keyswitch that has 1.5mm key travel to a low-profile typing experience. It also features LED backlighting and advanced anti-ghosting system capable of operating up to 256 buttons at the same time.
Razer Ornata is one of the cheapest keyboards from Razer but it is still incredibly interesting, combining the greatness of mechanical and membrane keys with their “mecha-membrane” design.
Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2
The BlackWidow Chroma V2 is another new keyboard on this list, it takes over from the original BlackWidow Chroma and builds upon it with Razer Green, Orange, or Yellow key switches, five macro keys, and 16.8 colours to choose from for backlighting.
