5 Best Gaming Keyboards of 2022



Escape to Tarkov folks may not get along with Minecraft fanatics. But they will agree upon one thing – a gaming keyboard should have that perfect, satisfying click. A keyboard is one of the most vital, and yet, often the underrated component in your gaming arsenal.

Over the last few years, Razer has rolled out some of the best gaming keyboards in the market. To begin with, they have multiple ranges to suit every kind of gamer and budget. For those hardcore PC builders, the brand offers extensive customizations and programming. And not to mention, the attractive RGB lighting. 

But what makes a Razer gaming keyboard unique?

Unlike other brands that have standard designs, Razer does its own thing. They offer very flexible and extensive customizations. For instance, you can program every key on the board and even its RGB lighting. Their build is quite durable as it’s made from hard plastic topped with metal. For keys, Razer offers a wide variety of switches. You can pick your favorite keyboard with mechanical, analog, optical, and even hybrid switches.

What to look for in a gaming keyboard

Of course, the click-click and RGB lights aren't enough 

Full size vs TKL

A full size gaming keyboard is the one that has all the arrow keys, macro keys, dedicated media keys, number pad, and more. These are the most convenient keyboards if you have space on your desk.

TKL or Ten Keys Less boards are compact but the compactness is achieved by chopping off a few keys. Percentages like ‘TKL 60%’ denote the size of your shortened keyboard. For instance, an 80% will have the number pad cut off. Meanwhile, a 60% will have no num pad and arrow keys. The TKL keyboards are easier to carry around than full-sized ones.

Wired vs Wireless

A lot of gamers might prefer wired keyboards as they respond quickly. However, there are wireless options available. Some keyboards come with multiple connectivity options like low latency dongle and Bluetooth. 

Mechanical vs Membrane:

Gamers will tell you that mechanical switches are the best. They’re loud, clicky, and most people love them. Mechanical keys are responsive, tactile, and accurate which makes them a favorite with gamers. You can also replace the keycaps of a mechanical board for exciting themes.

Meanwhile, the membrane switches feel soft and spongy. Unlike mechanical switches, membranes don’t make clacky noises. If you’ll be using your keyboard for other purposes, then you might consider getting a quieter set of switches.


After you get the basics decided, you might opt for some extra features like RGB backlights, macro keys, media keys, multiple connectivity options, and more.
