Keyboards are a vital peripheral for PC users, and regardless of your budget it's important to pick the right one. The most important consideration is what sort of feel you want. For instance, most cheaper keyboards use dome switches mounted on top of a membrane, giving very little tactile feedback. Therefore, touch typists and gamers may want to consider choosing a keyboard with mechanical switches as these provide much greater tactile feedback. Mechanical switches are available in different grades, such as black, brown and blue to name just a few, each with its own set of characteristics. Once you’ve chosen the switch type, Scan offers a wide range of keyboards in a huge variety of colours, styles, including backlit and RGB-illuminated keyboards. Scan further offers specialist keyboards for professional workstations, which are optimised for specific applications.
Mechanical keyboards are renowned for the quality, consistency and longevity of their switches – they're rated for tens of millions of presses, so they'll never tire of gaming before you do. There's a wide range of excellent switches to choose from, and many keyboards come with extras such as backlights, media control and macro switches. Invest in a mechanical keyboard, feel the difference and never look back!
If you want to be the best, you must use the best! Keyboards play a key role in your gaming setup, be it for moving around your favourite map on Call Of Duty, or firing off your Ulti on LoL! Why settle for second best? Get yourself a mechanical keyboard and feel the difference for yourself!
