Mini gaming keyboard?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I need a keyboard no longer then 12", I have big hands so they keys should be regular size. I game quit a bit. I do not want one with allot of click clack, some noise is ok. $40 is my top spending limit. Any recommendations? mechanical preferred but soft touch is ok.

I have look at multiple keyboards on newegg and read a couple of the reviews the ones that I saw are not cutting it.

Take a look at the one in my signature.

Logitech k340

I will eventually upgrade to a bigger keyboard but for now it works very well.

The TG3 BL82 is 12" by 6" and has MX Black mechanical switches. It would be a challenge to find one for $40 though unless you get one with a touch pad but then it will be bigger.

splurge on a poker. i hear they are awesome, or just flavor of the year in the keyboard community.

mine is 79.99.
that's about as cheap as your gonna get for a TKL mechanical.
other then that "good" gaming keyboards at 40 are almost unheard of.
