Looking for the best gaming keyboard

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Thinking about buying the Cherry G80-3930 MX 6.0 Keyboard but not sure yet. What would be the best gaming keyboard ?

That's a pretty expensive board for the price. It looks like Cherry MX Reds, I would recommend reds if you game for long sessions. IMO blacks were too heavy for long gaming sessions. Blue to clickity clackity, and brown is okay but I prefer brown over blues. Clears are still pretty stiff, feels like black and brown together. Have you considered other boards? Say like Ducky Shine? That Cherry Corp keyboard is pretty expensive at $200. But if you're willing to spend that I'm not going to stop you. biggrin.gif

I got the CM Trigger with red switches 3 years ago, I have to say I'm amazed with this keyboard. I love the mx red keys, I find them the best for gaming, so easy to press keys for long sessions and the keyboard itself is pretty much indestructible.
After 3 years the only place that I can see wear is on the wrist rest.
If your looking for a full sized gaming keyboard, it's definitely worth looking at.

I think it's personal preference. I have a G910 and I love it. That said, there are quite a few good keyboards.
