Mechanical keyboards are generally more responsive and durable than conventional membrane keyboards because of their mechanical switches. Our range of mechanical keyboards include models that provide tactile and audible feedback for improved gaming, as well as 104-key and tenkeyless form-factor mechanical keyboards designed for professional use.

Why do I need a mechanical keyboard?

 

Mechanical keyboards are often considerably more expensive than membrane keyboards - especially keyboards that use a Cherry RGB switch. Mechanical keyboards work by utilising individual switches for each key giving them a robust and consistent feel.

 

Despite the benefits of mechanical keyboards, many people still prefer the feel of membrane keyboards. Instead of individual switches for each key, membrane keyboards utilise two circuit boards and a rubber ‘dome’ membrane to cushion the keys. As a result membrane keyboards can suffer from inconsistent key feel and typically do not last as long as mechanical switches.

 

What is the best mechanical keyboard?

 

The best mechanical keyboard is the one that has all the features you need. If you need a professional keyboard that will enable you to type fast, consider getting a mechanical keyboard with features similar to those found in the Ducky One 2 Skyline mechanical keyboard and its tenkeyless variant, the Ducky One 2 Skyline TKL mechanical keyboard. Wireless keyboards like the RGB-backlit Keyccron K6 RGB are also a good choice.

 

For gamers, there are a lot of mechanical gaming keyboards available, from high-end enthusiast keyboards like the Das Keyboard 5Q Smart Mechanical Keyboard to entry-level and budget-friendly gaming keyboards like the Cougar ULTIMUS RGB Mechanical gaming keyboard.

 

Can a mechanical keyboard really help me type faster?

 

If you are typing is hindered by a keyboard that breaks easily, registers multiple keypresses even if you pressed only one key, or have keys that wobble and are unevenly spaced, then yes, a mechanical keyboard will definitely help you type better. Plus, a mechanical keyboard is typically more robust than any conventional keyboard because of its mechanical switches. 

 

Which keyboard size do I need?

 

Keyboards are available in a variety of sizes ranging from compact (60%), tenkeyless - TKL (80%) and full-size (100%). Some keyboards can be even larger with several macro keys and media buttons.
