ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWhether you are building a new gaming PC or just looking to upgrade, you will eventually face the same roadblock as I did- 'what keyboard should I buy?' Gaming keyboards are profusely different from keyboards you use in your office, school or college. You will first want to get yourself a mechanical keyboard because membrane decks are a thing of the past. Mechanical switches are the go-to preference for gamers and we're even seeing some awesome new technologies being incorporated. Some have textures right on top for a better grip that some reduce actuation delay. The design of a keyboard is also another essential factor when it comes to buying a top class gaming keyboard. Whether you want a keyboard that offers super quiet switches with no tactile feedback or a mechanical switch that is heavy and has that accentuated clicks sound. You also want some sort of RGB elements with backlit switches. Keep in mind this list has the top-of-the-line gaming keyboards and doesn't feature budget-friendly keyboards. We'll be doing another feature on that real soon. So here's our full list of the top gaming keyboards you can buy in India right now: 1. HyperX Alloy Elite RGB (Rs 10,800) © GumTree It's by far the cleanest looking keyboard out there that packs everything you want from a gaming keyboard. It comes in your choice of Cherry MX Brown, Blue, and Red. It has USB passthrough if you want to power other gadgets from your setup. It's a premium keyboard that comes with an affordable price tag. It has dedicated media control buttons, detachable wrist rest and red backlighting. We prefer the RGB variant as you can customise it to your liking. However, if you are on a budget, you can get the non-RGB version for Rs 6,999. 2. Corsair K95 RGB Platinum (Rs 15,499) © YouTube The Corsair K95 RGB Platinum is the best of the best at the moment, and is probably the Ferrari of keyboards for us right now. It's a big keyboard that will require some good amount of space on your desk. It has a metal volume wheel, dedicated media controls, USB pass-through, RGB lighting. It even has an extra set of textured WASD keys if you want a better grip while gaming. It's also one the more expensive options you can get, however, you can always look at a cheaper alternative by Corsair i.e. the K70 RGB Mk.2 which costs Rs 11,400. 3. Razer Blackwidow Elite (Rs 12,081) © YouTube The Blackwidow Elite is Razer's top of the line model of gaming keyboards and has all the bells and whistles a gamer would need. It has a standalone 3.5 mm audio passthrough and is probably the best feature for people who like to use premium headphones. You can even use Razer Hypershift in order to add a secondary function for each key or better explained, any key can function as a macro key. 4. Logitech G413 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Rs 4,999) © RAZER This is one of the more affordable and simple looking gaming keyboards on our list.

Function (FN) keys let you control volume, play and pause, skip track, mute, toggle lighting, enter game mode.

HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Cherry MX Brown) [Rs 9,300] © Logitech This mechanical keyboard was made with keeping FPS players in mind. It is compact in size and a minimalistic tenkeyless design. Since it does not have a number, the smaller footprint is ideal for FPS players who require that extra space. The compact space and supplied mesh travel pouch also makes it transportable which means you can take it anywhere with you, especially LAN parties.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsGamers spend nearly lakhs on making their near-perfect gaming rigs but often tend to cut corners as far as peripherals are concerned. A smooth and comfortable mouse, ergonomic and responsive keyboard and a headset with amazing output and mic are a must-have. While the processor, RAM, GPU, and the display are the primary points of consideration, what's the use of having a world-class setup that just doesn't deliver an equivalent experience. In extreme situations, the responsiveness of a keyboard is very important, and let's agree, we all want some flashy backlights. We've already covered our recommended top peripherals, and here we'll be taking a deeper look at the many good options available when looking for a gaming keyboard. 1.
