Best Gaming Mechanical Keyboards for 2016

There are various types of gaming keyboards, however, when it comes down to performance there is one type of keyboard that hands down always wins over the competition: Mechanical Keyboards.

gaming keyboard

Mechanical keyboards go perfectly with gaming; they were basically designed for it. The mechanical switches give tactile, consistent feedback that makes keystrokes register more reliably and predictably than other, regular keyboards. The keyboards also have anti-ghosting technology, which means you won’t be pressing too many buttons, too quickly for the hardware to recognize.

Many of these gaming keyboards are flashy and loud, so you’re going to want to look elsewhere for quiet mechanical keyboards that are good to bring into your office.
