For some reason they think that a £229.99 keyboard is cheap, that is considered high end, not cheap.

I've been using a BlackWidow for years now and I love it. I dont think the V3 Pro is the best choice though since it's too expensive because of all the extra features it has.

I’ll never understand why anyone likes RGB and can’t wait for it to die. Now if it was a set color or changeable that’s cool. But having every color on your Keyboard, PC, and Fans, is really dumb. It’s like the PC community is stuck in the 1990’s car scene.

Logitech G815 / G915 TKL is completely absent from this roster. It's so low profile, completely cured my wrist fatigue coming from Corsair K70 Low Profile Rapifire yet it's not even mentioned here. IMHO it's the best keyboard out there.

@iErick C. no they aren’t. Being the cheapest and being cheap aren’t the same thing. Just because the cheapest Ferrari is 150k doesn’t mean it’s a cheap car. With Christmas coming up and the world still being in a global pandemic anyone with half a brain would have put more affordable options on this list. But then again I can’t remember that last time ign put actual thought into something.
iErick C.
iErick C. - 11 dager siden
Those are all the cheap options. A custom Mechanical Keyboard can run you $250-300 on the low end.

Back when the original Roccat Vulcan came out, there weren't many (at least in the UK) keyboards that looked like it. There was one Logitech one which had no media keys, but brushed metal wasn't really 'in'. I'm glad that aesthetic is being more widely adopted.

I bought a Razer BlackWidow Chroma (LED) mechanical keyboard in 2015. It's still going strong, today. Razer is known for "cheap" products, but I can say without a doubt the RBWC mechanical keyboard is one of their best products ever made. The irony is it was $75, five years ago... Still cheaper than the cheapest keyboard featured in this video.

I'm currently using a GMMK 60% White Ice Edition - has hot swappable switches, before that I was using Steelseries Apex Pro TKL - which allows you to has these custom omnipoint switches that allows you to adjust the actuation distance. Then before that I was using Logitech G pro TKL which were using the Romer G switches. So far I like the form factor of the GMMK, but the stock switches that it comes with are Gateron Browns which, so if you want something different you have to get the black version and then you can choose. Or you can buy your own switches.
