In all honesty, the keyboard is less important to typing than switch configurations and keyboard ergonomics.

It DOES NOT contain a tonne of gaming features or a “gaming design,” but rather concentrates on providing users with a relaxing, accurate, and enjoyable typing experience.

⦁ No hot-swappable? Wireless?
⦁ Lack of Customization Options:
I don’t believe there is a simple “this is THE keyboard for devs” because I only work as a developer part-time.

Having said that, developers often find that many game characteristics remain!

⦁ customizable keys
⦁ Hyper-processing technique developed by AXON (simply quicker)
⦁ convenient ergonomics (the Corsair K95 and K100 comes with a detachable wrist rest)
⦁ Volume control, RGB, media buttons, etc. Multi-function knob
Cherry MX switches OR optical switches are available with the K100 (which are slightly faster, though the difference is tiny).

Mechanical keyboards The scroll wheel, too! With Corsair’s software, iCue, you can modify this to manage RGB, media jogging, and even more.

The K95 is also produced by Corsair, however it is more expensive and missing some of the finer features.

⦁ Price: $50 Wireless?
⦁ No Hot-swappable?
⦁ Yes Customization Options:
⦁ Many switch and colour choices
Speaking of optical switches, the inexpensive, 60%-sized Epomaker SK61 keyboard has a wide variety of Gateron optical switch alternatives.

15 .The Wooting Two HE – Next Level Analog

Wooting
Wooting

$200 Price Wireless?
⦁ No Hot-swappable?
⦁ Absolutely, there are several switch possibilities and colour options.
What if you could regulate the degree of resistance you encounter on each key? Switches should be lighter for gaming and heavier for business or typing. With the Wooting Two analogue keyboard, you can accomplish that.

Really, this keyboard is awesome (though very expensive).

It isn’t a mechanical keyboard, technically. While they APPEAR like mechanical switches, the switches have a distinct purpose. Instead of using a mechanical switch with a “on-off” scale of 0 to 1, the keyboard can really detect how deeply the switch has been depressed (like a 0-100 scale).

You may therefore regulate the working force, which ranges from 0.1 to 4.0mm.
