Best Gaming Keyboard 2016

Updated on November 8, 2015

Gaming keyboards are a little more expensive than high-end general purpose keyboards. In my experience they do enhance your gaming performance and gaming enjoyment enough to justify the extra cost, especially for the more serious gamer.

For best gaming keyboard 2016 we have selected some of the best selling products from different producers and with differing features and price-tags. These are all very good keyboards, but matching the features to your specific needs will give you the best results.

Logitech G19 Programmable Gaming Keyboard with Color Display

The Logitech G19 is the perfect fit for the hard-core gamer. The 320x240 pixel LCD monitor is centrally located on the keyboard. You can view video playback, check your stats and important in-game information. The display also allows you to view VOIP communication data, and pretty much everything you want at a glance.

The the keys have backlight and their brightness can be adjusted. The backlights definitely  helps you to play games, in the dark. The twelve G-Keys can be programmed for up to thirty-six key presses or complex macros. Volume control is done with ease with help of a really cool spin wheel. As an added bonus the comfortable attachable wrist rest let's you play for longer without wrist fatigue.

Conveniently the Logitech G19 Keyboard allows you to connect dual devices with two powered high-speed USB ports. For that ultimate gaming experience, power-up your cutting edge gamer mouse or your high-definition gaming headset.

Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard

With a much lower price-tag than the G19 the G15 is great value for money.

As you can see in the picture the hand rest on the keyboard is adjustable.

The Longitech G15 has an elevated LCD display which offers gamers high in line gaming visibility. The Display keeps the gamer informed of ammunition stats and other system information during gameplay. The illuminated keyboard also gives you visibility while gaming in the dark. You have the option to choose from three levels of brightness.

The G15 also allows you to store headset or mouse cable in the routing groves beneath the keyboard. Though some of the larger cables may not fit, this is definitely a useful design feature. For added flexibility the stands are collapsible to adjust it to a more desired angle.

The six programmable G-Keys are useful to create complex macros for single touch playback. There are less G-Keys than you will find with the competition. However this comes with a reduction in keyboard size.

One touch control buttons for media access and volume control are conveniently located to the right of the LCD screen.

If a friend was looking to buy a gaming keyboard this is the one I would recommend.

Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110

The Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110 has a LED back-light feature. You have the ability to customize the keyboard’s backlight colors which makes it easier to use in the dark. The twelve G-Keys allows you to easily program up to thirty-six macros, giving you edge over your opponent. The ability to disable the Windows/Context to avoid unwanted interrupted is also a definite plus.

The G110 is a hi-speed USB HUB which gives you the ability to connect additional hardware like your gaming mouse. It also maximizes your gaming experience by allowing you to connect your analog gaming headset and microphone into separate jacks. Multimedia access and volume control are always at your fingertips.

You can create and save your keyboard setup with the G110. This is useful if you use different macros for FPS and MMORPGs. Unlike others in its category the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110 does not have a LCD display, it is however cheaper.

Microsoft SideWinder X6 Keyboard

The Microsoft SideWinder X6 Keyboard takes your gaming experience to a whole different level. The type-feel of this keyboard is solid and firm and may not be appealing to users who prefer a softer touch. The keys are adequately spaced and sized which encourages accurate keystroke. Like most of the keyboards in its category the X6it has a backlight to see the keys in the dark, but unlike some of the others its adjustable backlights are not that bright.

The cruise control is a definite plus for the avid gamer. When held with a second key it repeats the functions of that second key. Having the ability to program up to ninety macros is nice for serious gamers. The X6 also gives keyboard access to Windows Media Player, ITunes and other multimedia players.

The beauty of the interchangeable number pad is pretty clever. Removing the num-pad allows you to place your keyboard and mouse in a more accessible position.

Saitek Eclipse Backlit Keyboard

Like it fellow counterparts the Saitek Eclipse is an adjustable illuminated keyboard. Not only is the eclipse a pleasure to see in the dark, but the laser etched keys are also soft and gentle to the touch.

The Eclipse removable wrist rest and slope design provides added comfort and support. The adjustable stands give you a chance to change the angle of the keyboard to fit your needs. The Eclipse gives you easy and immediate access to volume and media control. If you prefer to play your games in a dark the Saitek Eclipse is ideal.
