Is my keyboard good for gaming?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently own a Logitech Media (azerty) keyboard. Now the question is, is this a good keyboard or is there an even better one?

I've seen a keyboard with a led screen on it but I wouldn't know what the use would be since I'd hardly look at it when gaming.

Yes it more than suitable for pc gaming. Most dedicated pc gaming keyboards are gimicky and have no real advantage over a $12 oem keyboard unless its ergonomical.

I'd go from $12 to $15 and get the "Gaming Optimized" KRO Newegg RK800G myself but whatever.

Good as a $170 Logitech G19 but without the screen.

Sorry OP, I know you said thread closed...but i cant help it.

I dissagree with the above post. I use the Logitec G510 keyboard. At first I thought the LCD screen was a gimik..after using it I realy like it, Its handy in games! I also use it to display CoreTemp. You can also get programs that allow you to make your own little LCD display's for it, but thats not the point lol.

Point is:If you game, programable macro keys are the way to go! for years I never used them. My G510 Has like 57 diff programable buttons...I use them all! It took a month or two to get used to messing with it..but I love having the ability to make a button do pretty much anything I like in a game!

Not to mention the media controll's on the keyboard are great! Well that's my rant, I give you a clicky!. I'm not saying you have to try the G510, or an LCD keyboard, its great, but macro keys are even better
