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:

Full Size

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.

TKL

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.

60%

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.

Razer Cynosa V2 Gaming Keyboard

Overview:
Budget option - membrane type gaming keyboard
Fully programmable keys and customizable RGB
Media and volume button

Our first candidate for the best gaming keyboard is the amazing Razer Cynosa V2. This is a membrane keyboard though, not mechanical, but is really great especially for those who prefer membrane. The heights of the keys are sufficiently high, making the keys easy and very comfortable to press. It’s in full size and is fully programmable, allowing you to set every single key for a custom keybinding. Design-wise, it looks really clean and nice and the RGB backlighting from Chroma Razer is customizable. Due to it being a membrane type, it is priced rather affordably if you consider the customizable features. Even if you don’t prefer membrane, this is one keyboard worthy of your attention!

HyperX Alloy Elite Gaming Keyboard

Overview:
Full size mechanical with 100% anti ghosting
Fully programmable keys and customizable dynamic per-key RGB
Media button and neat volume wheel

For those of you with a higher budget, there are not many candidates for best gaming keyboards that can rival the HyperX Alloy Elite, in features and price. With fully customizable keys, this mechanical keyboard also comes with anti-ghosting features that will allow you to press more than 6 buttons simultaneously. Plus, you can set your preferred RGB colour for each key with its dynamic per-key RGB feature. Comfort and durability are two things you don’t need to worry about with this model since it’s made of a solid steel frame and comes with a detachable wrist rest. There is also a media button and a volume wheel at the top. Price-wise, yes it’s a bit pricey but if you compare across other keyboards with similar features, you’ll notice that the brand is being quite generous!

Razer Huntsman Gaming Keyboard

Overview:
TKL mechanical with linear optical switch
Fully programmable keys and customizable RGB
Detachable USB Type C for optional wireless setup

One of the best gaming keyboards in TKL size is Razer Huntsman that offers great features of a mechanical RGB keyboard without taking too much space on your desk. Similar to the Razer Cynosa, Huntsman has fully customizable keys with customizable RGB backlighting from Razer Chroma. But unlike Cynosa, this Huntsman keyboard is mechanical with a linear switch type that’s absolutely pleasant to press. Each keystroke feels smooth and the input quite fast. Also equipped with onboard memory for you to set your own configuration for each key. The cable is a USB type C that’s detachable if you prefer a clutter-free desk. Price-wise, we consider this mid-range and is a great, smart choice for a TKL keyboard.

Steelseries Apex Pro RGB Gaming Keyboard

Overview:
Full size mechanical with 100% anti ghosting
Fully programmable keys and customizable dynamic per-key RGB
Adjustable hybrid switch for customized actuation point

Our fourth candidate for the best gaming keyboard is Steelseries Apex Pro, a keyboard with a unique feature: you can actually set the actuation point for each key. The actuation point is the point at which the keystroke will register the input. So when you’re typing an essay or working, you can set the actuation point to be lower, and higher when you’re gaming. This is a full size mechanical keyboard with fully programmable per key RGB, the same feature present in other high-end models, alongside 100% anti-ghosting and detachable arm rest. Needless to say, this is a monster of a keyboard!

Corsair K55 Gaming Keyboard

Overview:
Full size mechanical budget option
6 programmable keys with RGB b zone (10 preset)
Media and volume buttons

Another budget option in our list of best gaming keyboards is the Corsair K55. The main appeal of this keyboard is the decent features offered for gaming purposes but at a low cost. It’s a mechanical, full size keyboard with the design of a pricier one - we even thought on the first look, that it would cost more than it actually does. At this price though, it only offers 6 programmable keys for macro on the left side and the RGB setting is limited to per-zone, rather than per-key and only up to 10 colour presets. It does come with a media button and a volume button on the top right. Overall, if you don’t mind the (small) limitations, this is a great choice for an affordable gaming keyboard.

F.A.Q

Generally, mechanical keyboards are better for gaming due to their low latency and smoother keystrokes. However, there are membrane keyboards with low latency, suitable for gaming. Ultimately, it’s up to your preference.
If you have a lot of space on your desk, you might want to get a full size gaming keyboard as it offers more keys and thus, flexibility. Otherwise, you might want to get a TLK size keyboard. 60% size keyboards are not really recommended for gaming. Ultimately, it depends on your needs and budget.
Shoptrack’s choice for the best gaming keyboard brands in Malaysia are Razer, HyperX, Corsair and Steelseries.
