All games have their own best gaming keyboards. However, there are a few excellent candidates out there that can enhance anyone’s gaming experience without costing them too much.
And here’s the list of the best gaming keyboards under Rs 14,500.
Razer Huntsman Elite (Rs 13,700)
If you’re going to spend Rs 15,000 or less on a gaming keyboard, this would be the best choice for the money. Its great experience as largely attributed to its lighting effects. The Huntsman Elite has a solid design as well as a great performance with the Purple opto-mechanism switches from Razer that delivers good typing and fast performance unless you don’t like tactile, clicky feedback. The keyboard also comes with discrete media controls which are programmable like all the others.
In addition, with the Synapse software, gamers will have extensive controls over the device’s setup. The Huntsman Elite has not only the lighting for each key but also a band of light going around its outside, along with a padded wrist rest attached to it.
However, you’ll have to connect it to your PC through a USB port in order to use it.
Logitech G Pro (Rs 10,671)
This is currently the best tenkeyless backlit keyboard for gaming within the budget. Its selling points lie in its size, its speed, and its sturdy design. With the Romer G Tactile switches, you get the feedback that is not clicky.
The G Pro is meant for esports, meaning it’s quite bare-bones, lacking wrist rest and media keys. However, it comes with a removable USB cable and you get three height levels for adjustment.
The G Hub software from Logitech offers you easy settings and control options.
HyperX Alloy FPS RGB (Rs 7,826)
This keyboard, with a solid design, is good for typing and responsive gaming. It comes with linear Kailh Speed Silver switchers that are quiet and smooth, featuring short actuation point and low actuation force for easy double, triple taps.
Also, it’s easy to custom setups and preset games on the Ngenuity software, letting you store three profiles to the device’s memory. But this keyboard doesn’t have discrete media controls or wrist rest.
Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile (Rs 10,136)
This keyboard makes a great choice if you often play games among other people as its linear Cherry MX Red RGB low-profile switches are quiet. That means this one has the look and feel of a modern keyboard used in the office.
It comes with RGB lighting for every key and textured keycaps for gaming that include one for the spacebar. Additionally, the media controls have LED backlight too and there is a USB pass-through. And the keyboard comes with a plastic wrist rest.
The iCue software is good for programming keystrokes and controlling lighting on the keyboard.
Roccat Vulcan 120 AIMO (Rs 13,517)
This keyboard comes with a switch called Titan, which offers quiet tactile feedback, while it's responsive and firm for gaming. You can use the Vulcan for typing as well.
Though it's not really easy to use the Swarm software, it offers all the design tools for you to create custom lighting effects as well as macros with various profiles. Additionally, you can match the light between the keyboard and other devices from AIMO.
Apart from that, it offers several extras such as a knob for adjusting the brightness for RGB lighting for each key as well as a wrist rest made from hard plastic.
SteelSeries Apex M750 (Rs 9,888)
The Engine software from this company allows you to customize the keyboard lighting as well as get light notifications for chats if you're on Discord. The software also lets you display effects got music or convert a GIF for playback.
Using the linear QX2 switches, the keyboard is quick for typing and fast for gaming due to the low force and short actuation point. But it may be a bit noisy as its key bottom out though the switches are quiet.
The downside is that the Apex M750 lacks adjustable feet, discrete media controls, USB pass-through, and a braided cable.
Mad Catz Strike 4 (Rs 9,249)
This one meets all basic requirements for a decent gaming keyboard, including a metal body, RGB LED lighting for every key, and Cherry MX Red switches. Its performance is overall solid thanks to the switches and it's quiet. It has a non-removable USB cable but you can route it to the right, left, or center to make your desktop tidier.
One downside of this keyboard is its front edge, which isn't an ergonomic design or straight, it's not a wrist rest either but it sits right across the keyboard's front.
Another one is its software, which does the job, but quite basic.
