Did you just build your own PC and are looking for no compromises on your design? Or do you spend a considerable time of your day using a keyboard and want to upgrade to another keyboard? Well, look no further! A best mechanical keyboard is what you need. Why do you ask? Well, it’s common knowledge that it is more comfortable, customizable, and durable. Don’t be tempted by cheap membrane keyboards! And yes, all keyboards are generally mechanical, but there are huge differences between the mechanical-feel keyboards and actual mechanical keyboards. We will explain that in a short while.
Today, we will be telling you which is our pick for the best mechanical keyboard that is not only ideal for gamers but also does a splendid job at your office table.
RAZER BLACKWIDOW CHROMA V2 KEYBOARD
Razer has built its reputation for giving some of the best products. So, it is not a surprise that it has given us the best mechanical keyboard. One of the bestselling Razer keyboards of all time is the Razer Blackwidow Chroma V2 Keyboard.
THE NEW FEATURES
The key-fonts are kept simple, not too aggressive for people who dislike gamer font. This one also comes with a detachable wrist rest and we must say that it is by far one of the best, if not the best, wrist rests in the market. Why? It is very soft from the top so your wrist won’t be spending a lot of time on the conventional wrist rests.
COMPARISON TO ITS PREDECESSOR
Other than that, it is pretty much like its predecessor. There are five macro keys on the left and a USB pass-through and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the right. A lot of people prefer connecting the mouse to the keyboard so that’s nice to have.
SO MANY SWITCHES TO CHOOSE FROM!
Now you have three switches to choose from: Razer green, orange or yellow. Razer Green is very clicky, much like Cherry Blue. The actuation force is 50g and keystroke lifespan of 80 million- which is pretty much near impossible to get to. Razer Orange switches are tactile and silent while the new Razer Yellow is linear and silent. You can choose to your liking while buying the keyboard and getting this option is amazing, to say the least!
CORSAIR OR RAZER?
One of the most liked features about Razer keyboards is the option to control the brightness of the LEDs. The brightness of Razor keyboards can’t be competed even by Corsair keyboards. There are multiple profiles to choose from. The software is very easy to use and the keys can be individually programmed. There are many pre-made effects available online such as for gaming and typing wherein the keys light up, countdown or pulse which gives a whole new meaning to user-PC interaction.
The only bummer would be that although the keyboard doesn’t look like it, it is made of plastic. Not to be too worried about it, but it makes the keyboard prone to scratches. At the end of the day, it is one hell of a keyboard for anyone. It is great for typing and gaming.
