Which keyboard to choose?

Decide for what purpose the device is needed – for work, for games or for combining two kinds of activity:

  • standard – designed for typing. It is divided into two parts: under the right and left hand. Designed for those who work with typing and prints blindly;
  • multimedia – in addition to the standard set of 104 keys, it is equipped with additional keys (of a different size or shape), which are intended for simplified use of the basic functions of the computer:
  • sound control;
  • CD tray control
  • audio player control;
  • to launch the network capabilities of the computer (open the search engine, mail, browser, etc.);
  • to work with popular programs (for example, open / close the calculator);
  • monitors the state of the windows of the operating system (minimize, close, go to the next or previous window);
  • computer control: put into standby (sleep) mode, turn off the PC.
  • flexible – convenient for transportation. It can be washed, it will not break from contact with the liquid. Some models are backlit;
  • gaming – stands out for its design, the presence of additional buttons that are placed in a separate block. Some of them have an additional display, analog joystick, backlight and more.

Gaming keyboards are distinguished by their ergonomics and additional features:

  • additional programmable keys – their number is different depending on the specific device model. Programmed at the discretion of the gamer for a specific action in the game or the sequence of several actions – macros;
  • built-in memory – so as not to reconfigure the keyboard for each individual game, it has its own memory for saving game profiles. Convenient for quick switching of the key operation modes at the time of changing the game;
  • game mode function – Windows blocks and inadvertently minimizes the game;
  • rubberized keys with the possibility of replacing them are provided by manufacturers for comfortable use and prevention of force majeure situations;
  • additional screen and / or analog joystick – equipped with advanced game models. The screen displays information about the status of PC resources (RAM, CPU load), etc., as well as the processes of game parameters. With a joystick, you can control the cursor without looking up from the keyboard, if this is relevant in the game;
  • additional connectors provided for headphones, a microphone and a USB port for quick connection;

Key illumination can be of different colors (blue, red, green, orange), with adjustable brightness and calm tone (eyes do not get tired in the dark).
