Types of Keyboard For Gaming
While all keyboards can be used for gaming, not all are suitable since some, especially the regular affordable keyboards, are designed for office use.
You can still use the keys for input but you will quickly realize how much it disturbs your experience and enjoyment. For the best gaming experience, you must get familiarized with the kinds of keyboards that are often marketed as gaming keyboards.
Membrane Vs Mechanical
Most of the best gaming keyboards on the market are either membrane and mechanical keyboards.
Membrane keyboards rely on a big rubber layer under all those buttons. It determines the key input based on the location on the rubber layer where pressure is applied. As such, they are not very sensitive but are silent (no clicking sound).
Mechanical keyboards, on the other hand, contain a switch on each key that registers the input when pressed. Hence, they are much more sensitive, feel nice to press and often produce clicking sounds.
While ultimately subjective, most people prefer mechanical keyboards for gaming purposes as they often are more durable, register input faster and easier, and operate at lower latency than the membrane type. Although, they are membrane keyboards that operate at low latency and have higher keys, marketed for those who still prefer membrane for gaming.
For a selection of mechanical keyboards for common use, here’s our list of best mechanical keyboards.
Keyboards, whether membrane or mechanical, also come in 3 main sizes:
This is the type with around 107 or more buttons and a number pad on the right – hence the name ‘full’. This is the best size for gaming as you may need extra keys to create macros or set shortcuts via keybindings.
This is short for tenkeyless or sometimes called 80% keyboards. It does not contain the number pad on the right side and is great for those without much space on their desk.
These keyboards do not have number pads, function keys and the arrow keys. It’s not very great for gaming but it does give you that minimalist look and save a lot of space.
