ProClockers is your source for keyboard reviews of many types and styles. Our gaming keyboard reviews are unbiased and give you the information you need to know before buying your next gaming keyboard. Is it back-lit, is it mechanical, what type of switches does it use? Those are the questions we will answer for you in our gaming keyboard reviews. Check back here often for an honest gaming keyboard review on the newest brands and models.
When looking for a mechanical keyboard, you are often overwhelmed with a wide range of choices in features and switch type. There’s a lot of people who are just looking for a quality mechanical keyboard that is RGB backlit and really don’t know the differences between all the switches. It’s these people that Cooler Master hopes to help with its newest keyboard additions: the CK550 and CK552. Both of these keyboards feature a minimalistic design, a curved aluminum top, floating keys, Gateron switches and on-the-fly RGB controls.
Peripherals are something every gamer drools over but rarely changes. Once you are used to something you use daily, it's hard to break away from that familiarity and muscle memory you’ve earned. Keyboards have been around longer than computers, and not much has really changed, so what does it take to motivate someone to take a leap of faith on new input devices? A few years ago, you might have been able to say ‘mechanical switches’ or ‘backlighting’ but it seems even the budget devices have that too. Unless yours has died and you just plain need a new one, it’s most likely going to be a combination of things you are looking for. Does ASUS have the right combination to win you over?
Whether you are an avid gamer or just the casual computer user a good keyboard makes a huge difference in performance. Either way, the Sandberg Hailstorm Mechanical Keyboard is one to put on your list. With its 104 key UK layout, custom lighting functions, and its personalized key settings you may just ignore the rest of your list.
Vigor. What is vigor? Vigor is being mentally and physically strong. Vigor is having the intensity and energy to win. And to win again. And again. That is the intention of MSI’s Vigor GK80 keyboard featuring Cherry MX RGB switches, dedicated hotkeys, and USB pass-through. MSI is no stranger to the world of PCs and accessories. Their product lines are wide and varied. Your whole set up could be entirely based off of MSI’s product lines. That is an awesome thing. No set up, whether completely kitted by MSI or a mixture of brands, would be complete without an outstanding top-tier keyboard that has the vigor to win….just like you.
MSI in the gaming and eSports world is a highly regarded supplier of notebook PCs, desktop PCs, graphics cards, motherboards, and peripherals. They are recognized by their dragon logo by PC enthusiast around the world. We at Proclockers are excited to be reviewing their Vigor GK40 Gaming Keyboard. A mid-priced keyboard for the cost-conscious or beginner PC gamer.
Thermaltake is jumping feet first into the peripherals arena with its Tt eSPORTS line of equipment. It sure seems like Thermaltake is going out of its way to brand and advertise this line of peripherals completely separate from their components business, so much so that the eSPORTS line has its own website. They were kind enough to send us a nice sampling of the eSports line which we will be taking a look at over the next week or two. The first one which will be having a look at today is the MEKA PRO mechanical gaming keyboard. Thanks for sending it over Thermaltake!
As you know Aorus is the gaming side of Gigabytes hardware manufacturing. And despite being a relatively new name in the gaming hardware arena they sure are producing some nice products. A perfect example of that is the Aorus K7 gaming keyboard and the Aorus M3 gaming mouse that we will be taking a look at today, huge thanks to Gigabyte for sending these our way!
