For the past several years, I have been looking for a rule to follow regarding which keyboard is best for me. Some time ago, I realized that the only person who knows what’s good for me is myself, so now I must search for something even more difficult: what will be best in 2022?
The truth about mechanical switches is that they are not that different from each other. As a result of this, I have amassed a collection of keyboards and am always on the lookout for new products with potential. This article is a summary of some models which may be popular in 2022, together with my observations on the pros and cons of each one.
The following products are recommended by Jeremy Azevedo, who has been developing wireless keyboard systems since 2015:
Here are Top 5 Best Keyboard for Laptop Gaming in 2022
1. Logitech G910 Orion Spark ($150)
This keyboard is part of Logitech’s Romer-G line and uses Cherry MX switches. The backlight can be adjusted to emit any color desired; however, it only has nine colors available instead of 16 million like most other RGB keyboards. The software suite is very simple and easy to use, as merely pressing a button will allow the user to switch profiles as well as create new ones. This keyboard has been discontinued, though it can still be purchased from some retailers for around $150.
2. Corsair Vengeance K95 RGB ($160)
This mechanical keyboard uses Cherry MX switches and includes a set of 18 G keys which make programming macros much easier than on other keyboards. The software suite is very powerful, allowing the user to adjust three different zones’ colors independently while also providing access to predefined effects such as “breathing,” color cycling, and waves. In addition, this keyboard has media controls, volume wheel, and USB passthrough connectivity. However, its price places it out of the range of budget users.
3. Corsair K65 RGB ($89)
This keyboard’s biggest selling point is its size. Due to its removable wrist rest, it can weigh as little as 340g or as much as 598g, depending on whether the wrist rest is attached or not. It also uses Cherry MX switches and has media controls, but lacks some of the features of other Corsair products such as G keys, color cycling, and waves. Even though this keyboard is among the lightest in weight for a mechanical model measuring only 298mm by 210mm by 41mm (width by height by depth), it costs only $150 and makes a great choice for laptop gamers who prefer portability without sacrificing performance too much.
4. Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum ($99)
This keyboard can be considered a budget option as it has been on the market for about 2 years now. It uses Logitech’s Romer-G line of switches with 10 available colors for its backlight and supports four profiles, each with its own custom lighting effects. Unfortunately, the media controls are not physical buttons but instead require a function key to be pressed in order to activate them, which makes them much less convenient than those found on other Logitech keyboards. This model is highly praised by most users and is a great choice except for those who need removable media keys.
5. Corsair Strafe RGB (Red switch version: $89; Blue switch version: $120)
This one is a bit of a wildcard since Corsair has two different models for this keyboard which have different switches. As a result, the price difference between them changes frequently due to discounts and rebates offered by various retailers. Both versions use Cherry MX switches and support 16 million colors for their backlights. Unfortunately, they lack G keys or any other macro keys so programming macros can be difficult. They also do not include USB pass-throughs or media controls but are very affordable at $110-120 depending on the version.
These are just some of the best keyboards that will probably be around in 2022 if you want to go with mechanical switches. Fortunately, all five boast great performance despite using different switch types, sizes, layouts, backlight features, etc. Fortunately, all five boast great performance despite using different switch types, sizes, layouts, backlight features, etc. If you want to know more about each keyboard and its switches, go ahead and Google them; there’s plenty of info available online.
