VicTsing Gaming USB Wired Review – The Cheapest

This keyboard delivers high value for the money. It might not be the most appealing design we have seen, however build quality is good and it has the performance feature of anti-ghosting that allows the keyboard to deal with as many keys you can press down at once without becoming “confused”. The keyboard is LED backlit and has 3 levels of brightness. We would have appreciated a software in order to be able to manually control the LED.

In the end it is however a great buy for those with a tight budget or simply don´t want to spend too much money on a keyboard.

Redragon K552 KUMARA Review – Gaming Cheapest Choice

It might not be the fanciest looking keyboard, but it does an excellent work that fulfils the basic needs for most gamers. This is a mechanical keyboard that also features multi-key-anti-ghosting. The mechanical keys combined with it’s anti-ghosting delivers excellent performance for responsive gaming. Since the keyboard is compact built, it does not feature the NUMPAD section however.

The bottom line is that this is a high performing keyboard that will satisfy most gamers. Taking it’s price tag into account this is the Gaming Cheapest choice.

Gigabyte Mechanical Cherry Red (GK-Force K83 RED) Review – A Cheap Fighter

Similar to the above mentioned, the Gigabyte Mechanical Cherry Keyboard is also a compact keyboard that performs very well in gaming context. This keyboard has a NUMPAD section and includes wear resistant keycaps. It does however suffer from backlit keys as well as wrist rest.

This is a good buy for gamers who prioritise responsiveness and performance over design and appeal.

Corsair K55 RGB Review – A Cheap Performer

Another excellent keyboard for it’s money. It comes with a detachable wrist rest and advanced lightning effects that can really make this keyboard glow. The RGB lightning is customisable. What is also good with this keyboard is that it has the anti-ghosting feature allowing the keyboard to deal many keys being pressed down at the same time. The plastic build quality might not be the best we have seen, however considering it’s price we conclude this to be a good deal.

Razer Cynoza Chroma Review – An Appealing Performer

The Razer Zynoza Chroma is a compact, yet powerful keyboard with an appealing design. Instead of mechanical switches, this keyboard has membrane switches that delivers slightly slower response time than the mechanic keyboards. For any entry level this is hardly noticeable though. With it’s spill resistance design and fully programmable keys with on the fly macro recording, the Razer Znoza Chroma makes a good deal for many gamers out there.

Backlit: Yes

Mechanical: No

Wrist rest: Yes

 

Razer Ornata Chroma Mecha-Membrane – Our Best Performer

The Razer Ornata Chroma works on a hybrid switch technology called Mecha-Membrane, which is both membrane and mechanical. It all turns out to deliver great, responsive performance. Even though switches are hybrid the keys feel mechanical.

Keys are also individually backlit with over 16 million customisable colour options. Design is durable and easy to clean. To summarise this is a great performing, appealing keyboard for a still reasonably cheap price.
