Seven of the Best Gaming Keyboards for 2019

If you have invested money into your computer and you spend a lot of time gaming, you don’t want your keyboard to let you down. Gaming keyboards not only heighten your playing experience, but they can also actually help you to play better.

Here are our recommendations for the best gaming keyboards:

Corsair K95 RGB Platinum: £184.99

GAMING KEYBOARDS

  • High quality
  • Full-size keyboard
  • Extra set of textured keycaps
  • Dedicated media controls
  • RGB Backlighting
  • Detachable wrist rest

This gaming keyboard is expensive but you certainly get what you pay for. The key responses are fast and have a nice feel to them when pressed and the wrist rest is perfect for long gaming sessions. This keyboard feels like it has been designed by a gamer.

Cooler Master MK850: £161.48

GAMING KEYBOARDS

  • Designed to replace a gamepad
  • Full-size keyboard
  • Dedicated macro keys
  • RGB Backlighting
  • Wrist rest

You might not have heard of Cooler Master before but if you use a gamepad on a regular basis then this could be the gaming keyboard for you. Lots of cool features integrated into this design, including something called ‘aimpad technology’ which allows a subgroup of the keys to be used the same way as the analogue inputs on the gamepad analogue stick are.

SteelSeries Apex Pro: £199.99

GAMING KEYBOARDS

  • Stylish and great quality
  • Quiet to use
  • Minimalist design
  • Custom actuation settings
  • RGB Backlighting
  • Wrist rest

If you want a gaming keyboard that you can adjust and tune to your own personal preferences, this is the one for you. Using magnets, the Apex Pro allows gamers to ‘adjust the distance it takes for each key to register a key press, helping them to play more accurately and quickly’. Yes, it is our most expensive recommendations but for serious gamers the performance value and the way you can customise it make the price worthwhile.

Corsair K63 Wireless: £110.00

gaming keyboards

  • Wireless
  • Programmable keys
  • RGB Backlighting
  • Media controls

Want to sit back and relax on the couch while you are gaming? Then look no further than this wireless offering from Corsair. It features Cherry MX Red switches, nice tactile responses and is quiet to use.

Logitech K840: £86.56

gaming keyboards

  • Full-size keyboard
  • Integrated function keys
  • Sturdy frame
  • Budget-friendly

As you can see, there aren’t many frills on this gaming keyboard, but, for those on a budget, it will do to start with. There’s no backlight, wrist rest or dedicated macros. What you do get, however, is the Romer-G switch which some gamers have compared the feel to the Cherry MX Brown.

Razer Huntsman Elite: £139.99

gaming keyboards

  • Fast speed key actuation
  • Bright and colourful
  • Nice tactile key switches

If you like speed you’ll love the Razer Huntsman. This is actuation at its best, thanks to the upgraded switches. It is fast, comfortable to use and you really get a good sense of the game you’re playing. You’ll need serious juice for the lights and power but we think you won’t mind.

Cooler Master MasterSet MS120: £54.99

Gaming Keyboards

  • Good budget option
  • Nice compact design
  • Keyboard backlighting
  • Tactile response

Looking for a cheap all-rounder? This is your best bet from Cooler Master. It marries a bright backlit keyboard with a good tactile feel from the keys and it is pretty quiet too.
