Community Article Keyboard Buying Guide: Mechanical Or Membrane? - Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Keyboard Buying Guide: Mechanical Or Membrane? - Micro Center Virtually everybody uses a keyboard on a daily basis, be it the built-in set of keys on a laptop or a separate one that’s connected to a desktop PC. Many of us don’t pay that much thought to these ubiquitous peripherals, but if you’re finding that your cheap keyboard isn’t cutting it any longer and it’s time for an upgrade, we’re here to help. In this guide, we lay out the differences between membrane and mechanical keyboards, compare the most common mechanical switch types, and bring you up to speed with everything else you need to know before you buy. The Redragon K556-RK (Brown Switches) What is the difference between membrane and mechanical keyboards? Keyboards are generally broken down into two broad categories: Membrane keyboards and mechanical keyboards. These terms refer to the way in which the keys interface with the keyboard’s circuit board, which reads your key presses and sends the inputs to your computer. Membrane keyboards are more common today due to their simplicity and low cost of manufacturing. On a membrane keyboard, the keys sit on a rubber overlay – the namesake membrane – which then sits on the circuit board. When you press a key, it pushes on the membrane and registers a keystroke. The advantages of membrane keyboards are that they’re simple, quiet, and cheap to make. The drawbacks of membrane keyboards are that they are considerably less precise than mechanical keyboards (that is, keystrokes may not always register quickly or accurately) and typically do not provide the pleasant tactile feedback that many typists and gamers prefer. Some membrane keyboards may even start to feel “mushy” after a while. Inland iC100 Keyboard & Mouse Combo (Membrane) Enter mechanical keyboards: Instead of a one-piece rubber membrane that registers keystrokes when keys are pressed, mechanical keyboards assign individual switches to every single key. This keyboard design is naturally more complex (and therefore more expensive to produce), but in decades past, mechanical switches were the norm. If you used computers in the ‘80s or ‘90s, for instance, then you’ve almost certainly typed on a mechanical keyboard before, maybe without even realizing it. Perhaps you actually remember how good those old keyboards felt (or how clicky, heavy, and noisy they could be) and wonder why keyboards today don’t feel quite the same. Now you know. Mechanical keyboards are greatly preferred by people who do a lot of typing, such as writers, as well as gamers who demand more comfort and precision from their PC accessories than most users (I include myself among both groups). Thankfully, mechanical keyboard switches never completely disappeared, and the internet has allowed for something of a renaissance in mechanical keyboard design in recent years. In fact, you’ve now got more choices than ever when shopping around for a mechanical keyboard – wired, wireless, full-size, compact, you name it – and that’s before you even start looking at the sprawling number of different keyboard makers, switch types, and switch manufacturers out there. Now that you’ve got the basics down, though, we can dive deeper down the rabbit hole of switch types and their characteristics. Logitech G G513 (GX Red, Linear) What is the difference between mechanical keyboard switches? Although most mechanical keyboards from decades past (such as the iconic IBM Model M) utilized a switch design known as a “buckling spring,” modern mechanical keyboards are a bit different. The vast majority of today’s mechanical keyboards feature Cherry MX switches, which remain the gold standard, or their off-brand derivatives. These non-Cherry MX keyboard switches are generally referred to as “Cherry clones,” which is not necessarily a term of derision as several of today’s off-brand switch makers are well regarded by mechanical keyboard users. Gateron, Kailh, and Outemu are three popular “Cherry clone” brands and you’ll often see these switches on competitively priced keyboards. Of these, Gateron is arguably the most highly rated, with many users claiming that these keyboard switches are even slightly smoother than Cherry MX in some cases. Switches of this style, whether Cherry MX or clones, are categorized by colors which are typically equivalent between makers (e.g. a Gateron brown keyboard switch is roughly the same as a Cherry MX brown switch). There are quite a few to choose from today but the most common are red, brown, blue, and green, and those are the ones we recommend you stick with unless you are already familiar with mechanical keyboards and have more specific needs. These colors designate the typing characteristics of a particular keyboard switch. These include actuation weight, or the amount of force needed to depress the switch enough to register a keystroke; tactile feedback, or whether the keypress is tactile or linear; and noise level, or whether the keys are relatively quiet or “clicky” and loud when pressed. SteelSeries Apex 7 (Blue Switch) “Tactile” and “linear” are terms you’ll see a lot when looking at mechanical keyboard switches, and refer to the physical sensation of each keypress. A tactile switch has a soft “bump” which you will feel when you press the key down to the actuation point (hence the switch’s “tactile” namesake). A linear keyboard switch is non-tactile, meaning that the keystroke will be totally smooth with no tactile bump. The choice between tactile and linear keyboard switches boils down to preference. Both have their advantages: Gamers, for instance, might prefer a linear switch, as the smooth keystroke makes quick, successive key presses (such as double-taps) slightly faster. On the other hand, many typists enjoy the physical feedback of tactile switches. You may want to test out both if you get a chance to see which style you prefer before buying. As far as the most common types go, Cherry MX red keyboard switches, such as those found on the Corsair K70, are linear, quiet switches with a medium actuation force of 45 centinewtons (cN). Cherry MX brown switch keyboards are similar, but these keys are tactile with an actuation force of 55cN. These are two are very popular and well-rounded switches for common typing tasks like writing and gaming, and they’re a good place to start if you’re new to mechanical keyboards. Corsair K70 RBG MK.2 (Cherry MX Red) Cherry MX blue switch keyboards are both tactile and clicky, meaning that you will not only feel but also hear the tactile bump during each keystroke. These switches feature a heavier actuation force of 60cN as well. Cherry MX green switch keyboards (and clones from brands like Razer) are tactile, clicky, and even heavier still, with an 80cN actuation force – if you’ve never used green switches before or you have a light touch while typing, you might find your fingers actually feeling slightly sore after using these for awhile. What are the noise levels of various switches? Mechanical keyboard switches are generally noisier than their non-mechanical counterparts, but there are audible differences between switch types. Aside from terms like “tactile” and “linear,” you’ll see switches described as “clicky” and “non-clicky.” These admittedly aren’t the most technical terms, but they’re fairly straightforward in that they refer to the noise output of each keystroke. Red and brown switch keyboards are non-clicky, and so are a bit quieter than blue and green switch keyboards (red being the quietest mechanical keyboard switches of these four popular switch types due to their linear, non-tactile operation). People immediately around you will hear you typing, and you will hear yourself typing, but not to the point of being disruptive. Clicky blue and green switch keyboards, on the other hand, are somewhat notorious for the amount of noise they create. This makes them less than ideal for office environments, which might be a problem for some as these switches are often favored by those who do a lot of writing, data entry, and other precise typing-heavy tasks. This is something to bear in mind if you’re going to be using your mechanical keyboard in a shared environment.

The Devarajas is as sturdy as it comes with responsive brown-switch keys and a sleek aesthetic that will blend in with any desk for work and gaming. What makes the Devarajas different from a standard keyboard? If you’re unfamiliar with mechanical keyboards, you might be wondering what makes them different from the everyday keyboard you’ve been using, and what are brown switches? Mechanical keyboards tend to be studier than membrane keyboards, both in build quality and in how long they will last. The mechanical switches that give mechanical keyboards their name are rated for approximately four-to-ten times as many keypresses as your standard membrane keyboard. Mechanical keyboards are designed to last longer and feel better, thanks to mechanical switches, than the standard membrane keyboard. When you type on a membrane keyboard, you’re pushing a rubber membrane dome onto a circuit board. Mechanical keyboards feature keys elevated from the circuit board that operates with a spring and a switch to tell the computer what key was pressed, allowing for quicker responses, higher accuracy, and a more satisfying press. There are a wide variety of switch types, but we’ll be focusing on the MX brown switches found in the Devarajas. MX brown switches are sort of a half-way point between gaming and work. They don’t have the “click” commonly associated with mechanical keyboards (that tends to be reserved for blue and green switches), but they do still have tactile feedback, letting you know when you’ve actually pressed a key and haven’t just tapped it. For mechanical keyboards with brown switches, that feedback comes in the form of a bump around halfway through a full keypress and is clearly felt in the Devarajas. How it Looks The first thing you’ll notice opening the Devaraja is its weight. The Devarajas is an incredibly solid keyboard, supported by a black steel aluminum frame with no give or bend. That steel aluminum frame gives it a sleek, minimal look that accentuates the matte-black keys over the frame, especially with the raised keys lifting away for easy cleaning. The Devarajas is a full-size mechanical keyboard, including a number pad, but, unlike a lot of gaming keyboards, it doesn’t extend past the size of your average keyboard. With the addition of the FN, or function key, the Devarajas puts the F-row on double duty, serving as both the F-keys and media keys, including volume, playback control, and app buttons. It wastes no space, keeping everything compact, with just enough breathing room to make sure it still feels good to use. Of course, no gaming keyboard is complete without customizable RGB backlighting and, thanks to the reflective steel alloy and raised keys, it looks great. Even at its brightest, the lighting never overpowers, instead of creating a cloud of reflected light for your keys to sit on. Or, if you’re a fan of rainbow effects, the Devarajas comes with a suite of pre-programmed color profiles to make lights dance across your mechanical keyboard or react with every keystroke. The FN key can even adjust your RGB backlighting on the fly, no need to open the app. How it feels Each key is lightly textured and concave, creating just enough of a grip that there’s no danger of finger slips while keeping movement fluid and easy for both gaming and work. There is definitely some height to the keys, but actuation time, the amount of time needed for a keypress to register, is still short and snappy thanks to its MX brown switches. The Devarajas’ MX brown switches are, as with all brown switches, quiet and tactile. There’s a small amount of feedback about a quarter of the way through a keypress, just enough to know you’re using brown-switch keys. While the switches themselves are quiet, the keyboard does have a bit of snap to it when fully pressing a key, giving it a satisfying “typing” sound. The switches are a bit heavy as well, so if have a habit of resting your fingers on your keyboard, you’re probably not going to accidentally type ‘dddddddddddddddddddddddd’ in the middle of an important email or walk yourself off a cliff in Warzone. After typing on the Devarajas for several days, I can safely say it's incredibly comfortable to use. The keyboard layout is tight, but there's still enough room between keys that I never found myself hitting multiple keys with a single stroke. It has a great response time, and I never saw a dropped input, both contributing to a great gaming experience. Like most mechanical keyboards, the keycaps are easily removed for deep cleaning both the keys themselves as well as the keyboard should you spill anything. Unlike most mechanical keyboards, the Devarajas comes with a switch puller as well as a test selection of MX red, blue, and black switches. To really customize this keyboard, you could swap out the "W" and "S" with blue switches, making it very clear where your hand is on the keyboard. This is usually an advanced modification, and a recommended one if you're a gamer, but Redragon makes it easy. Download the Devarajas App! The Devarajas app is minimal, clean, and easy to use. It offers multiple profiles, so if you're one to regularly switch your RGB backlighting, you can set up a few options ahead of time. It also offers macro options though, unlike other gaming keyboards, without designated macro keys. You may want to sacrifice some of your number pad keys to utilize this macro functionality. Final Verdict: There's not a lot bad to say about the Deverajas K556-RK. While it is a budget mechanical keyboard, there's nothing about it that feels budget. The MX brown switches are satisfying to use, the chassis is incredibly well built and won't bend, even under stress. The app is certainly simple, but it shines for it, opting away from vast confusing settings for simple, easy-to-use RGB backlighting and macros. And a gaming mechanical keyboard with a number pad that isn't oversized is always a nice find. If you’re looking for a budget brown-switch mechanical keyboard, you’d be hard-pressed to do better than Redragon’s Devarajas K5556-RK. A sleek, solidly-built chassis and wide utility make the $54.99 price tag an easy recommendation. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

That said: Windows 10 lightweight support internet gaming - specifically, tabletop simulator on Steam; my current laptop has a lot of lag despite a good internet connection in the house. (HP Envy M6) I will probably also want to cast from this machine good camera and mic - the camera on my work machine is blurry (Dell Vostro) backlit keyboard, ports to support wireless keyboard and mouse. i probably wont use a headset, as I hate having things on my ears. Dell offered me an Inspiron 15 5000 at $600 based on these "specs" I am not a super user, I no longer need to use my personal machine for work, and I really just want the few things I do to work well. i would prefer to be frugal, but my last laptop lasted 7 years, so I'd like to get something that will keep me going for awhile again. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 16 edited February 16 Hello @kgfPatsfan I'd recommend a few different things, but your store's selection may vary. I'd recommend checking these out. Be sure to make sure that your store is selected at the top of the page. https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntk=all&sortby=pricelow&N=4294967288+4294817517+4294817438+4294819898+4294820736+4294820632+4294808474+4294808800&myStore=false As for my recommendations, I'd suggest a couple of different things, depending on your budget and your store's stock. ASUS Zenbook 14 Q407IQ-BR5N4 14" Laptop Computer - Grey; AMD Ryzen 5 4500U 2.3GHz Processor; NVIDIA GeForce MX350 Graphics; 8GB RAM; 256GB Solid State Drive HP Pavilion 15-ec0003ca 15.6" Gaming Laptop Computer Factory Refurbished - Black; AMD Ryzen 7 3750H 2.3GHz Processor; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB GDDR5; 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM; 512GB Solid State Drive Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-52QW 15.6" Gaming Laptop Computer - Black; Intel Core i5-9300H Processor 2.4GHz; NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6; 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM; 1TB Solid State Drive I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any questions. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook kgfPatsfan ✭ February 16 Thank you. I would say the ASUS is just a little more than i wanted to spend and is beautifully lightweight Doesn't seem to have a way to cable in to my modem to diagnose or overcome connection issues. The HP Pavilion seems to have almost everything I want - maybe a little on the heavy side, but I have better computer luggage than I used to and it might not be as important as I think it is. I could stretch to afford this too. The Acer Nitro is out; I'm just not willing to spend this much money on myself. My local store (Cambridge) appears to have all of these. Although you offered choices (thank you!) you did not enlarge on why these choices match my terribly vague specs. I'd like to hear why you chose these, but I'm happy enough with choice 2 that I probably don't need reinforcement. If I go with the HP, can you recommend a mouse and keyboard? Any reason I should not go with a simple and cheap option? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 16 I based my recommendation on the specifications you needed and the availability I could see. The HP is refurbished, however, it's a great option with a dedicated GPU. (GTX 1650) which will offer great performance for the games you're interested in. I wanted to give you options at multiple price points that would offer you good, better, best for the price you mentioned. I'd recommend a decent keyboard, but it would be mostly dependant on your budget and your needs. I spend my time working from a keyboard so I spend more than most. If I were looking for cheap yet quality, I'd buy something like the Redragon K530 Draconic 61 and the ASUS TUF 3 I'm a fan of Mechanical Brown Switches, and I like the wrist wrest on the Cooler Master CK530 and I like the shape and light weight performance from the Glorious Model D. I'd be happy to recommend others if you're unhappy with these. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook kgfPatsfan ✭ February 16 Thank you! Did you have any thoughts on the Inspiron Dell wants to sell me? I am not afraid of refurbished, and the specs of this machine address several of the things I know I want - thank you! My computer needs have atrophied extremely over the past few years, as I have moved more firmly to separate work and home. My home machine only needs to be able to game, and I am absolutely not a power gamer. I have extensive access to Office products and storage at work; I do not anticipate typing more than chat comments on this machine. Also, i will be typing and mousing from the depths of my comfy chair. I have been perfectly happy with a $14.99 logitech mouse/keyboard combo that ran off the same USB for a year, but like all cheap thinks, it eventually broke. Tempted by anything named redragon - I'm Welsh. The discussion I found on brown switch online takes me back - clicky keys! pressure resistance! I used to care so much about these things! I am definitely thinking hard about these options. Both of these mice seem subtly right-handed - I am left-handed. I do mouse with right hand buttons - I started my professional life in tech support and needed to be able to use other people's mice - but I use my left hand. Thank you for your time. I will definitely go with the HP. I will think about the redragon keyboard. I will keep looking at mice. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 17 Hmm, the Dell Inspiron that they have recommended for you doesn't have dedicated graphics. It does have Intel's new Xe integrated graphics which will perform better than the previous generations by a fair amount. It may still struggle to offer you decent framerates for tables with multiple assets or games that have a slightly higher graphics fidelity. That being said, it is a thin and light laptop which would be great for travel. It's an extremely portable laptop. Especially for a 15.6" inch. I prefer the brown switches for their tactile feedback! The blue switches are great too, however, they are quite a bit louder than reasonable. Especially since you mentioned you'll be using your laptop microphone. If you're planning on hosting meetings or other things, I might suggest a more quiet keyboard, like the Logitech you mentioned. Membrane keyboards are typically more quiet than mechanical. Red switches are very fast and typically a bit quieter, however, they are a bit too sensitive for my liking. (I have heavy hands that depress the key when I rest it on the keyboard.) Check out our recent article on Mechanical or Membrane. If noise is an issue for you, one can always purchase O-rings to dampen the noise that the key makes when bottoming out. Sorry, I didn't think to offer you an ambidextrous mouse. I'm a righty, so I recommend what I use/know. I don't have much experience with ambidextrous mice, however, the Logitech G G203 is great for an inexpensive yet high-quality option. Another mouse that I have experience with would be the Logitech G PRO It does have mouse buttons that can be switched for left-handed use. Always happy to help! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I got to spend a week or so with each and unpack what makes each of them unique and worthy additions to your desk. EVGA Z15 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard EVGA’s new Z15 mechanical gaming keyboard is the most instantly recognizable of the three. It's fairly unassuming, only slightly larger than your average membrane keyboard, clocking in at a sleek and simple 5.94”x17.52”x1.48”. But don’t let its modest appearance fool you, the EVGA Z15 comes prepared to work. Built on top of a solid chassis, the metal plating under the keys offers both an unbendable base for heavy gaming sessions and a great reflective surface for the Z15’s per-key RGB lighting. And since it is per-key RGB lighting, you can make the Z15 uniquely yours by customizing each and every key with EVGA’s RGB Unleash Software (we’ll get to that in a bit), even adding patterned color shifting and reactive lighting. The EVGA Z15 feels built with convenience in mind. The wrist rest that it comes with is magnetic, so it’s not sliding away from the keyboard with every keypress. It has onboard dedicated media keys and a volume scroll wheel. No more closing Warzone to change Spotify songs. And if you, like me, get killed from hitting the “Windows” key every other game, you can turn on gaming mode with a quick FN+G to disable it and save a life. I got to work with the clicky version of the Z15, which means that at its actuation point, or where the keypress registers for the computer, there’s an audible “click.” That actuation point sits at 1.1mm of the total 3.5mm travel distance and requires 50g of force, enough to not accidentally press a key, but not enough to fight back. These clicky-style mechanical switches tend to be the preferred style for gamers, as the tactile “click” helps increase response times. I spent most of my time with the keyboard typing at work, where the click is a bit less appreciated by my coworkers, but I still loved it - when you’re typing all day, that satisfying “click” is a nice, constant reminder of progress. The clicky Z15 comes with Kailh Mechanical Speed Bronze Switches, but EVGA also offers a silent linear version of the Z15 with Speed Silver switches. The Speed Silvers offer the same responsiveness and durability (70 million keypresses!), but without that click that’ll annoy your coworkers and housemates. And if your roommates do complain about the clicky Speed Bronze switches, the Z15’s switches are easily swappable for any of Kailh’s other 3pin mechanical switches thanks to the included switch puller and easy swap design. EVGA Z20 Gaming Mechanical Keyboard The EVGA Z20 Gaming Mechanical Keyboard takes everything great about the Z15 and just adds more. The metal plate and media keys are still there, but now so is a USB and headphone pass-through - no more reaching to plug in headphones or flash sticks. Much like the Z15, the Z20 comes in both a clicky and linear variety, but the Z20 ups the switches to LK Light Strike Optical Mechanical Switches. Where traditional mechanical switches use mechanical elements throughout the whole switch, optical-mechanical switches add a sensor to each switch.  While optical switches are still mechanical, and will still provide that same tactile feedback (or silence, depending on your switch type), the optical sensor reduces wear from daily use, increasing their lifespan to a whopping 100 million keypresses. Optical-mechanical switches also decrease reaction time from keypress to response, making every movement feel more instantaneous. Plus, the EVGA Z20’s switches are a bit shallower than the Z15, with a total travel distance of only 3.0mm, though the actuation distance is a bit further, 1.5mm. They’re also lighter, requiring only 40g of force, making it slightly snappier than the Z15. But let’s not bury the lede too much - the big thing the EVGA Z20 brings to the table is the Time-Of-Flight sensor, or ToF sensor. The Z20's ToF sensor is proximity-based and can pull off some pretty neat tricks, like locking your computer when you step away and waking it from sleep when you sit down at your desk. The EVGA Unleash RGB software offers an impressive range of options for the ToF sensor, allowing you to set time and distance requirements so that you don’t accidentally put your computer to sleep when you casually lean back at your desk. And if you really want to make a splash when you return to your desk, you can have it create a cascade of light across the Z20. But the ToF Sensor is far from the only thing the EVGA Z20 adds to the Z15 base. The left side of the keyboard has been extended to make room for five fully programmable dedicated macro keys and a game mode button - no need to hit FN+G, now a single keypress disables the Windows key. These extra buttons bring the Z20’s size up to 5.94”x18.58”x1.48”, adding a fairly noticeable (but worthwhile) inch to the length of the keyboard.  Also in that added inch are light bars on either side of the keyboard. They’re purely aesthetic, but if you’re looking to light up your whole room with your keyboard, the EVGA Z20 is the way to go. Like the rest of the keyboard, the side lightbars are fully RGB and aren’t constrained to a single color - multiple LEDs on each side allow the sides to be pink up top and deep blue on the bottom. The X17 Gaming Mechanical Mouse EVGA’s X17 Gaming Mouse is, arguably, the most unique of their new peripherals. While it might not have a ToF sensor or optical switches, The X17 stands out thanks to a deep slope to the right side of the mouse and a large hump at the back left. This shape creates a natural cradle for your hand, rising to meet your palm and angling your wrist in a way to rest more naturally. And while a claw grip is theoretically doable on the EVGA X17, it’s definitely more comfortable with a palm grip, fully resting your hand on the mouse. Despite the gaming mouse moniker, the EVGA X17 is fairly low-key. It does have by-zone RGB and a slew of programmable buttons, but it keeps a minimal look. It integrates and hides its plethora of macro buttons and tools across the mouse. On top of the conventional left, right, and scroll-wheel click, the X17 has the still-fairly-common dual side buttons, perfect for both gaming and casual use. But hidden in the scroll wheel is tilt scrolling - pushing the scroll wheel to the left or right - and both directions are completely programmable. Tucked above the two side buttons is the gamer-focused “sniper button,” which drops your DPI while it’s being pressed. But, like everything else, it’s rebind-able for daily use or more personalized gaming. If your EVGA X17 gaming mouse is moonlighting as a working mouse, directly under the scroll wheel is a profile selector, offering a hot-swap through up to five programmable profiles. Set up one for Warzone, one for World of Warcraft, and one for Excel spreadsheets, then swap between them with a single press. And don’t worry - there’s a DPI swap button underneath it as well. It’s still a gaming mouse first and foremost, though. The EVGA X17 comes with three discreet sensors, a main Pixart 3389, and two LOD, or lift-off-distance, sensors. The Pixart 3389 is the X17’s main sensor and delivers up to 16,000 DPI, while the LOD sensors disable the Pixart as soon as you lift it up (as little 0.279mm of elevation!) so you don’t miss your shot adjusting your mouse. And while the X17 weighs a fairly standard 103 grams out of the box, if you find yourself lifting it too easily, it comes with five 5 gram weights to add some heft. Of course, it’s not a gaming mouse without RGB and by-zone RGB lights up the scroll wheel, EVGA logo on the palm rest, and the front of the mouse. And, like the Z15 and Z20 keyboard, it’s adjustable with the EVGA Unleash RGB software. The Software: EVGA Unleash RGB If you’re decking your desk out in EVGA keyboards and mice, you won’t have to worry about cluttering your PC desktop as well; the Z15, Z20, and X17 all use the same EVGA Unleash RGB software.  Unleash RBG is minimal and easy to use. All attached peripherals are shown at the top of the program for easy swapping. The majority of the space is filled with easy-to-understand diagrams of your mouse or keyboard, so you know exactly what you’re changing when you make your sniper button open your email instead of DPI Shift. Macros carry over between peripherals, meaning you only need to program a macro once and you can use it on any EVGA keyboard or mouse. And it is easy to use - simply create an empty macro then hit the record button. It’ll pick up every action you make, including mouse clicks and how long you held a key. No more mistimed ult drops when you time every keypress to be perfect! The RGB editor is just as simple to use but also offers some depth. All three peripherals come with several color profiles pre-loaded, but if you want to make your own, you have a swath of options. Not only is it by-key RGB, but also by-key RGB effects, meaning you can set your WASD to flash rainbow colors while the rest of the keyboard maintains a static white hue. Final Word: The EVGA Z15 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is an easy recommendation, offering an incredibly solid and satisfying standard-issue keyboard. The EVGA Z20 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a bit more niche, but if you’re looking for a niche keyboard with neat tricks like a ToF sensor, you can’t go wrong with it. Lastly, the X17 Gaming Mouse is a great mouse for work and play, but I would recommend stopping by a Micro Center store to feel it before you pick it up, just to make sure it fits your grip. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

It's somewhat manageable for games but my beats are starting peel on the ear pieces. Also I play on a y50 from 2013, so being limited to 60hz, I have to upgrade anything I can. My ideal wishlist is Logitech G903 mouse for accurate shooting, Logitech Pro X keyboard for fast responsive mechanics, and Logitech Pro X for that crispy wireless audio. A Logitech G x Herman Miller gaming chair would be nice to place my cheeks on but that's a bit out of budget. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AceB00gie ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 My Gaming Setup Monitors: 1) ASUS VG278 144hz 2) ASUS VP278 (70hz IIRC)  Keyboard: Ducky Mecha Mini with a mixture of custom keycaps (Baby blue Taihao Rubber & Ducky Black Pudding for the rest) Mouse: Glorious Model O Headset: Arctis Pro Wireless Mousepad: HyperX XXL PC: Lian-LI Liancool II case , Ryzen 9 3600x, RTX 2070 super, 64gb gksill trident ram, 1tb samsung 970 evo, NZXT kraken x62 cpu cooler, and 3 Nzxt Fans tied into the Hue 2 system that has light strips behind the monitor. Everything you see here was bought at the Micro center in Rockville, MD except for the keyboard, headset, xbox controller and Hue-2 system. To be quite honest the only thing I really need to upgrade is the mouse. Switched over to the Model O at the start of quarantine when I built this beast of a PC, and it doesn't feel as good as my old logitec g403. Love the Dr. Lupo swag, been a fan of his for about 3 years now, Love to see him take off like he has recently       1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook clout ✭ August 2020 I use my setup for streaming and competitive gaming. DrLupo has been an idol to me since the beginning of Fortnite. My mouse is a bit outdated and I feel like his signature mouse would go perfect with my setup and help me competitively. My favorite peripheral is my mouse pad because it covers my whole desk. Being that DrLupos mouse is wireless the amount of space is endless. My dream mouse is to have a logitech G Pro Wireless. What a coincidence my favorite streamer partnered with Logitech/Micro Center to do this amazing giveaway, good luck to everyone!! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Venaur ✭ August 2020 This is my hodgepodge setup for gaming. A little bit of everything. Mostly this is for League of Legends and the random steam game or two.  My favorite here is the Logitech G603 mouse. I love that it is wireless and has a super long battery life.  If i were to upgrade anything here i'd be looking to upgrade the keyboard. It works well but there are much better options. Maybe go for the Logitech G815.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook tefaholic ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 I have this gaming pc that cost $500 from amazon and it came with the keyboard and mouse.I really need a mouse because I’m starting to get into gaming.My parents bought the PC just for school work because i I had a cheap laptop.My parents bought it it kinda works good but i stick with it.The keyboard and mouse came with the PC and i am currently trying to be a professional Esports gamer.Please help me with my setup,it will mean the world to me.I also don’t have headphones so I use speakers to help with the sound.Thank you for this opportunity My favorite peripheral is my Monitor because it’s a 60HZ Monitor image.jpg 1.8M image.jpg 1.8M 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «123» Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Favourite is the new G502, its my fav because i have been having a nightmare. In the last 3 months i have had to return 4 DIFFERENT brand new mice to Corsair as the scroll wheels keep snapping internally and not working, one lasted as little as 2 weeks. Im very brand loyal and have slight OCD so love all my things to match but at the moment they dont. I cant replace the keyboard and mouse mat right now so this prize would be perfect for me. PLUS i have no friends and have to play Tarkov (Hence the paper note with the list of best ammo types lmao) so i need all the help i can get and Lupos gear might just make me able to finish my last 3 challenges for Kappa. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Kraftyboi ✭ August 2020 Here is my setup! it took me about 1.5 years to save up for everything. I am a huge sucker for any logitech products as you can see. I use this for both gaming and work. My mouse (G403) and keyboard(g pro) are my favorite parts of my setup. I’m looking to upgrade my mouse as the g403 cord is a huge issue for me. I love showing and explaining my setup to people because I am very proud of it.

It get's the job done and is very responsive. Helps me drop 20-30 bombs in Warzone all thanks to Logitech. If I could upgrade anything it would be my mouse to either a wireless G703 or the wireless G Pro and my keyboard to the G Pro. I recently got the wireless G Pro X headset and I absolutely love so I've been very interested in trying out more of Logitech's wireless gaming hardware and of course I want to switch my keyboard so I can have Logitech everything.

I would love to get a top of the line wireless mouse.  Was looking at HyperX or Razer based on the cost, but Logi G Pro mouse would be amazing.  Would get a sizeable mouse pad to compliment as well.  Mine is just one I had lying around.  I'll get another monitor down the road, just saving for other things at the moment. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook pinayprincessa ✭ August 2020 Hi i am pinayprincessa ,i am full time content creator, partner at twitch and this is my set up for streaming , i am a big fan of drlupo because of how genuine he is and passionate about helping people in need, been watching him for years,Also the little drlupo is in front of my pc on the left. my favorite is my new pc, some parts are from micro center near me. i can stream smoothly now without frame drops and higher fps in call of duty.

Dell UltraSharp U2719D- Awesome 27" monitor for 60Hz 1440p gaming. Sebrant 3.0 USB Hub- I love the idea of having switches to turn my peripherals on & off. My favorite peripheral is the mouse! It fits my hand so perfect and I love the features of it. My upgrade wishlist is a new gaming monitor with a higher refresh rate and HDR. Something like 144 Hz 1440p gaming monitor would make my setup so much better. I also like the Logitech G915 Keyboard because of the RGB but it is too expensive for me. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Coltonj13 ✭ August 2020 I pretty recently got my setup but could not be happier, I absolutely love it. I purchased it to play games like Valorant, EFT, Warzone, and many others. But mostly, I watch Lupo at any and all times of the day. It consists of a Logitech G512 Carbon, Logitech Pro Wireless mouse, 24” acer monitor, and Logitech G432 headset. My favorite new addition is my Nanoleaf Light Panels behind my setup.

My mic is the Shure SM7B as I was talked into investing into some quality audio equipment, I kinda regret it because it was a big part of my budget at the time and couldn't buy a camera for a while after this. (I got the Sony A5100 now though) I also used to own a G Pro Wireless myself but the mouse wheel started rubbing against the mouse buttons, so I decided to test the Razer Viper and then I got myself a mouse bungee from Glorious. Already missing that wireless feeling btw! For my monitor and mouse pad I've always used BENQ's XL2546 and Zowie GSR, I like them and never decided to change, especially the mousepad because I can just put it in the washing machine like once a month, no problems, and it gives you that clean fresh mousepad feel! And then lastly my keyboard is the Steelseries Apex Pro with the customisable actuation switches, a nice touch but not necessary in my opinion. My favourite peripherals are probably my headset and the Logitech GPW I owned in the past, I've never had problems with it and it fits my hand perfectly! The main reason I'd love to win this is because it's all from one brand meaning I don't need to install 3 different softwares like Steelseries Engine, Synapse 3, Logitech G Hub, etc. I've also been thinking of buying a new GPW so that could save me some money. And ofcourse it looks really clean and professional. It's just one nice package and the colours will fit perfectly with my background! #WaitingForCyberpunk2077 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ENZAK ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Brispy ✭ August 2020 My headset is the Logitech g pro x wireless, my keyboard is the glorious gmmk tkl and my mouse is the viper ultimate!

My favorite peripheral is my keyboard. It's not overly complicated and it works with no problems. If I could upgrade it would my headset. It doesn't fit very well and the volume buttons on it are in a very inconvenient spot so I'm accidentally hitting the mute button all of the time. If I could, I would upgrade my mouse. It's just all right; it was a hand me down from my husband.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JDoucet ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 I use my setup for ultra-competitive gaming sessions. It composes of the following: A WD easy store external harddrive, a cutting-edge Logitech M510, the best mouse-pad I could find (for 4 dollars at OfficeDepot) and a pair of Beats noise-cancelling headphones. I also use a ultra-sleek gaming chair I saved off the street and cleaned up/"refurbished". For real now, I use it for work and for playing anything from GW2 to Destiny 2 and am saving up for a monitor and computer that I can dedicate to gaming. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dagbar ✭ August 2020 My setup is used for streaming on twitch (Dag_bar) and kicking some zoomer butt on some COD:warzone or some RP in GTA.

Do you recall the very first time you heard the phrase “mechanical keyboard”?   I sure do!  When I built my very first computer in 2015, my coworker at Panera Bread asked if I was gonna get a mechanical keyboard. Now I have been PC gaming since I was a wee lad, but I was completely oblivious to the term mechanical keyboard.  I’ve only used keyboards with membrane switches at this point. So, I ended up doing my research and figured out quickly that this was the next purchase on my list for my gaming setup. I went straight to the top of popular mechanical keyboards at the time which was Razer’s Blackwidow Chroma. I was ecstatic about this keyboard. Absolutely loved it.  But in the last 5 years of buying different brands of keyboards and styles, I’ve noticed that you don’t have to purchase the most popular or expensive keyboard. I’ve had Corsair, Logitech, and HyperX keyboards and the one thing I noticed about all of them, is that they are all pretty dang expensive.  So what about the affordable gaming keyboards? Is there a more affordable option to where one can attain a more affordable, quality mechanical keyboard?  The answer is… yes.  Absolutely.  We’re going to go over Inland’s Mechanical Gaming Keyboard lineup for 2020.  The three Inland models in this review will be the MK-S, MK-F, and OMK-X.  Please use the links below to jump ahead. Inland MK-F/MK-S Inland OMK-X Inland Keyboard Software Final Thoughts Inland MK-S  TKL (Tenkeyless) Lower profile KT Red Switches Aluminum Cover Braided USB Cable Inland MK-F  Full Size Keyboard KT Red Switches Aluminum Cover Braided USB Cable Removable Wrist Rest Inland OMK-X  Full Size Keyboard KT Optical Blue Switches ABS Chassis Dedicated Macro Keys Volume Bar Removable Magnetic Wrist Rest 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Comments AlexS admin June 2020 Inland MK-F & MK-S Mechanical Gaming Keyboards I’m going to review these two keyboards simultaneously. The reason being is that the only real differences between the MK-F and MK-S keyboards is that the MK-F has a numpad and wrist rest and the MK-S does not.  The keyboards come with a keycap removal tool, software disc, and manual. Design Inland opted to go with a brushed aluminum cover for these keyboards with the remainder of the chassis being hard plastic.  It’s sturdy, looks super clean, and can compliment any sort of computer station, even one in an office environment. The key switches and caps sit atop the chassis like you would see on more recent keyboard designs, which makes it easier to clean.  The key layouts are fairly standard and do not include any dedicated macro or multimedia keys.  The caps are all clearly labeled and also have any shortcuts etched into them.  They also provide very ample lighting with the RGB effects.   Inland also decided to go with a braided cable with gold plated USB connector. This is always a nice touch when looking for a new keyboard. It's very durable and much more flexible than a plastic cable. Both the MK-F and MK-S also come with rubber legs if you wish to elevate the keyboard. Keyswitches As of now, the only mechanical key switches available for the MK-S and MK-F series boards are the Kailh/Kaihua KT Reds. They are linear SMT switches (Surface Mount Technology) and offer an operating life of 50,000,000 cycles.  They’re essentially what many would call a “Cherry MX clone” and they can definitely hold up during heavy gaming sessions.   I would like to say that the break in period for the MK-F was about a week to get these switches feeling consistent, but I experienced zero issues out of the box with any mishaps or accidental keypunches during this easy Jett Ace in Valorant on Split. The LEDs on the switches themselves are nice and bright and can be adjusted with the function (FN) key shortcuts. Functionality While I’ve come quite accustomed with having dedicated macro keys/multimedia keys on some of the more expensive keyboards, Inland has done a pretty darn good job with trying to keep it all in one.  Combining a multitude of keys with multiple functions, profiles, or multimedia use allows the MK-F and MK-S keyboards to maintain a much lower profile than bulkier mechanical keyboards.  You get 12 Feature Keys, 14 LED modes, keyboard LED brightness control and even a Game mode to lock your Windows Button.  These keyboards function admirably. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin June 2020 Inland OMK-X Optical Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Inland’s OMK-X is one of the most affordable full size opto-mechanical gaming keyboards on the market. There is a miniscule amount of full size opto-mechanical keyboards that are under the $100 price mark and the OMK-X is in that category.  This keyboard comes with a keycap removal tool, software disc, and manual. Design   Inland’s opto-mechanical offering is a little bulkier and weighs in at around 3 lbs. The keyboard’s chassis is primarily made of hard plastic, and has a steel top cover instead of the aluminum cover.  You also get a magnetic wrist rest that connects to the bottom of the keyboard.   There are multiple programmable macro keys towards the upper left hand side of the keyboard, with LED mode keys for gaming on the upper right hand side of the keyboard. Inland was generous enough to also include a volume bar which is a nice touch. Both sides of the keyboard have some nifty RGB LED lightning as well.   The keyboard uses a plastic cable versus the more common braided style USB cable.  Since the model has USB passthrough, you’ll have two gold-plated USB-A connectors at the end of the cable which are clearly marked in case you do not wish to use the pass through. The key cap design has that gamer-like font with etched symbols for function shortcuts and allows RGB lightning to shine through very clearly.   Keyswitches The OMK-X uses Kailh/Kaihua KT Blue Optical Mechanical Switches and they feel amazing.  Personally, I’ve never been a blue switch kind of guy but I might be now.  Sure they’re a little on the louder side but the tactile feedback feels great and I was zooming against the opposition on typeracer.com (115+ WPM average though, no big deal).  The optical switches offer a 0.2ms response time which is insanely fast and offer 100% anti-ghosting.  For those who don’t know what anti-ghosting is, it’s technology that allows your keyboard to send simultaneous signals from multiple keypresses without any signals being lost.   The RGB lighting in the switches are comparable to KT Reds so it’s very clean and bright.  As of now, for the opto-mechanical OMX-K, the KT Blues are the only switch variant available at this time.   Functionality The OMK-X has plenty of function, macro, and media control keys.  You have 5 Macro Keys, 4 LED Game Mode keys, 12 Feature Keys, dedicated media keys, LED Mode and Control keys, a volume bar and even a USB pass through.  That’s a lot right?   The Macro and LED Game Mode buttons are pretty solid.  I didn’t expect them to stand as tall as they do but they seem quite sturdy.  The media function keys have a nice click and sit closer to the surface of the chassis.  The volume bar also has nice feedback to it when adjusting the volume.  The OMK-X offers 22 LED modes total with 3 different modes for each of the 6 LED themes plus the 4 LED Game Mode keys.  I’d say this keyboard offers plenty of RGB options for the budget mechanical keyboard shopper. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin June 2020 Inland Keyboard Software Oh and just for your information, each of these keyboards come with their own separate software on a mini disc.  This does help with setting up Macros or profiles.  You can also select your keyboard lighting effects instead of going through the function key combinations. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin June 2020 edited June 2020 Final Thoughts While there are plenty of expensive and higher quality choices for a mechanical gaming keyboard, Inland puts their foot down with the MK-S, MK-F, and OMK-X keyboards for the budget gamer.  These keyboards are well made, function great, and look very clean.  I’d recommend getting an Inland Gaming Keyboard whether you’re on budget or not! I thank you for taking the time to read my review of these great mechanical keyboards and ask that you answer the question I asked at the very beginning of the review. Do you recall the very first time you heard the phrase “mechanical keyboard”? And what is your favorite mechanical keyboard? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 2020 The Corsair K70 Vengeance has treated me well for many years, if something were to happen I think I'd try one of these for the price.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Abraham_r ✭ June 2020 I have been working with my logitech keyboard for a while and have learned that I really appreciate the ability to have a customization option of keycaps with the mx switches. So being able to have an inland keyboard I can take my setup to the next level with color coordination and creativeness. My eye is set on the omk-x 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook javiperez64 ✭ June 2020 The one that called my attention the most would be the Inland OMK-X. I absolutely love the palm-rest design and the macro keys. I can already see my self making so much use of those in daily use (gaming and work). I'll have to get my hands on one when I get a chance. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sato_maki ✭ June 2020 At the moment I game/work on my Anne Pro2. It’s not bad, it took a while with the software to get it configured with Bluetooth but overall not bad. Switches feel great. It is a little too small compact because I have bigger hands than average. I rather have a bigger keyboards like this one or Logitech/Corsair ones.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook GeorgeF ✭ June 2020 I quite like the OMK-X. Mainly for the wrist rest and volume rocker that most keyboards don’t offer. The design is aesthetically appealing. Also I’m not a huge fan of low profile keys so this one wins in my book! It looks pretty awesome as well! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook malla ✭ June 2020 I like the classic design and functionality of the omk-x. Not thing beats classic design, the others look good but will get outdated quick, similar to headset designs in 2015 vs now. The simple clean look will always be my favorite, screams professional with a gaming side. OMK-X  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Annnna ✭ June 2020 I like the Inland OMK-X it is nice to use and design is quite brilliant. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook kbeinlnleydy ✭ June 2020 I like the design of the Inland’s OMK-X. It's resembles the Corsair k70 slightly with some great looking rgb and extra keys. My first mechanical keyboard was the Corsair k70 rapidfire, and recently I moved to the glorious gaming gmmk tenkeyless and I absolutely love that keyboard. However they are both a bit more expensive then $100. It's be great to be able to try out the OMK-X!! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LookitsBirdi ✭ June 2020 Don't really dig the Gamer-y Look of the F or the S, but props for going for Box switches. Definitely preferring the OMK-X. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook kakudiego ✭ June 2020 For most of the people a $35 mechanical keyboard is more than enough. I'm using a VictSing 96 keys with doble O-rings.  It's nice to see more affordable options! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Goblin ✭ June 2020 I like the MK-F but brown switches would be rad 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Zenno ✭ June 2020 Glad to hear they are rocking red switches. Not sure about the 'cut corners' look on the S and F but I do miss arrow keys on my keyboard. I like the TKL but would it be weird to have a wrist rest on that one? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_StephenW admin June 2020 I have been using a Ducky keyboard with Cherry MX red switches since I did my first build 8 years ago. It hasn't let me down yet and I love it for gaming! I have a HyperX Alloy at work with brown switches that is great for typing and is much more affordable than the Ducky keyboards that are out today. Tested out some of the Inland boards and was satisfied with the feel of the keys during my brief time typing with it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook KingXF ✭ June 2020 That OMK-X really interests me. It has optical switches, multimedia and macro keys, and so many more features. As a YouTube product reviewer myself I'd love to get my hands on this and post a video review of it. If it had more switch options and had a tkl version it'd be even better! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook lymanamyl ✭ June 2020 The MK-S looks interesting since I've been looking to get a TKL keyboard.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bigjimboextreme ✭ June 2020 The Inland OMK-X RGB is the most appealing to me.

Of the ones here I find the MK-F the most appealing. I prefer full-sized keyboards and the review indicates that its red style keys would be less noisy than the OMK-X, which I think is a sharp looking keyboard, but the review indicates that its blue switches are noisier than I would want my daily driver keyboard to be. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Adrian_K ✭ June 2020 I think I'd prefer the Inland OMK-X - full sized with blue switches! Never can go wrong with clickyness  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MaxBunny ✭ June 2020 I first heard of "mechanical keyboard" from a friend, though I've used them before in the old days and just never knew that they were. While the switches last mostly forever, the laser sensors on some models will definitely not.  But the Inland MK-F looks like it's the overall value/design winner. $5 mechanical numpad can't be passed up over its TKL version.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook jhaluska ✭ June 2020 I like the MK-F the most.  I do enough of numeric data entry and find a number pad indispensable.  My second favorite is the MK-S which would be great for a gaming only setup.  I'd love to see if the wrist pads are at the proper height for my hands. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Cristina_TM ✭ June 2020 I've recently completed my first PC build and have a keyboard that I got from a friend as a placeholder until I get a better one. We were actually looking at building our own together but these look dope as hell!

Not like I can afford anything like this but Its a wish list so I can wish to own something close to this one day. This Build has a Ryzen 7 5800x Paired with 32gb of 3200mhz CL 16 ram with a RTX 3070 housed in the Beautiful Corsair iCue 4000X RGB case. The whole build is being powered by a Solid 850 watt PowerSpec powersupply and the Main Storage Drive is an Inland 2TB SSD. This is a very capable machine and I'm sure it can destroy games at 1440p and even at 2160p. This is a wishlist and I would probably never be able to afford something like this, But I'm very thankful for this and I really wish I can win the 500 dollar card so I can build my first ever Custom Built Pc.

The $500 gift card would really help me to buy a monitor, decent keyboard since I am using a $20 RII keyboard with membrane switches, and an upgraded headset as mine is 4 years old and the mic is not working. I will use the pc for gaming on titles such as minecraft, apex, valorant, gta, hunter call of the wild, and basically games that will need a decent pc for a high framerate.

It is a MASSIVE upgrade over the dual-core i5-7200U in my laptop. Also equipped with 32 gigs of DDR4-3200 megahertz memory, it's far from the fastest memory money can buy, but it's still a huge upgrade from my 12 gigs of DDR4-2133 megahertz memory. Perhaps the biggest upgrade, I included a RTX 3060 ti, and despite being on the low end of the 3000-series cards, it is FAR better than the Intel UHD Graphics 620 that I currently use. Alas, even if I could afford this build, the only way to obtain a graphics card is through a scalper, as they are out-of-stock, and impossible to find at MSRP. *sad gamer noises* 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ashton ✭ August 8 I'd like to just have an all-around pc, good for gaming, streaming, capture, and any other things I may want to do, but also be upgradable down the line. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=c50fe85c-716e-4cf4-b385-a3c9e6c76d17 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Otni ✭ August 8 edited August 8 Using this pc for gaming streaming and school.

Head over to Micro Center’s website and search “mechanical keyboard.” We have more than a few keyboards available. And with all those differing keyboards, it can be hard to decide what keyboard is right for you (though we do have a handy guide!). Whether you have a very particular taste or just can’t find the exact keyboard you want, we have a solution: You build your own. Micro Center is now carrying all the parts you need to build your own Glorious PC Gaming Race keyboards, from barebones keyboard bodies to switches and keycaps. But if building your own keyboard sounds intimidating, I’m here to assure you it’s not. So, let’s explore why you should build your own keyboard and how easy it actually is to do. Why Build Your Own Keyboard? You know exactly what you like, and exactly what you want. Maybe you’re looking for a 60% Tenkeyless keyboard with Gateron Blues switches and black keycaps. Or, maybe you want a compact keyboard with Kailh Copper switches and white keycaps. That customizability and freedom of choice is exactly why you build your own keyboard. And that’s just the start. Building your own keyboard means you’re not limited to a single switch or keycap. Mix it up, put Kailh box-brown on your WASD and Gateron reds everywhere else. Make a checkerboard pattern with your keycaps. And if you realize you’ve made a terrible mistake randomly placing Gateron Blues on your keyboard like clicky landmines, you can overhaul the whole thing whenever you want without having to buy a whole new keyboard. Is it hard to build your own keyboard? With the Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard, or GMMK, it’s not hard at all. It took me, a complete never-built-a-keyboard-before novice under an hour to go from this: To this: All while watching TV. How do I choose my parts? There’s no one answer to this question, as it’s entirely based on your personal preference. But we can offer a quick break down on which each of the parts are: Bases: GMMK Full-Size Base: Your standard keyboard size, including a number pad, F keys, and navigation keys. GMMK Tenkeyless: Almost a full-size keyboard, just without the number pad. It’s a bit smaller as a result, but still offers direction keys and F keys GMMK Compact: The bare minimum for a keyboard. No number pad, no navigation keys, no F keys, just enough to give you the full alphabet and punctuation. Switches: There are two different types of keyboard switches to choose from, each with their own subset of styles. Gateron looks to match the reigning mechanical champion Cherry as much as possible while prioritizing smoothness. Kailh switches, on the other hand, get a bit more experimental and try to improve on Cherry’s design. Gateron Blue: Clicky and tactile, Gateron Blues respond with an audible click as well as a small bump at their actuation point Gateron Brown: Tactile and quiet, Gateron Browns have a small bump at their actuation point, but no click Gateron Red: Linear and quiet, Gateron Reds don’t have the tactile bump or the noise of Blues and Browns Kailh Silver: Speedy and Linear, Kailh Silver switches are silent and linear with no tactile bump and have a high actuation point so keypresses register quicker. Kailh Copper: Speedy and Tactile, Kailh Copper switches have the actuation bump as well as a high actuation point for faster keypresses. Kailh Box-Brown: The same as Gateron Browns (tactile and quiet), but with a reinforced stem to lower key wobble as well as increase dust and water resistance. Kailh Box-Red: The same as Gateron Reds (linear and quiet), but with a reinforced stem to lower key wobble as well as increase dust and water resistance. Keycaps: Mechanical Keycaps: These are your standard keycaps, a solid color (available in Black and White) with translucence on the lettering to let the RGB of your base shine through. Aura Mechanical Keycaps: Functionally the same keycaps, but with a translucent base for brighter and more apparent RGB.  For my build, I decided to use parts I knew I would like, rather than try something new: GMMK Full-Size Base - I’m a sucker for a number pad, even if I rarely use it. Gateron Brown Switches - As a writer and a gamer, I want that spot between clicky blue switches and linear reds. That happy medium is brown switches, offering tactile feedback, but without the loud click of Blues. Aura Mechanical Keycaps White - I won’t lie, I meant to choose black keycaps. I accidentally grabbed the wrong box. But I’m really happy I did, as the white keys on a black bed look really nice. Hopefully, this has given you some idea of what you might want in your own build as we move on to the big part: How do I build a Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard? It breaks down into three steps: Attach the switches Attach the keycaps Test and personalize We’ll take a bit to break down each step, though none are particularly difficult. How do I put switches in my Glorious Mechanical Keyboard? Just push em in!  Okay, so it’s not quite that simple, but it very nearly is. If you take a look at your switches, you’ll notice two prongs poking out of the bottom. Make sure the prongs are sticking straight out and not angled. If they’re leaning, use the included tweezer tool to straighten them out, and you’re good to go. Line those prongs up with the holes in the slot you’re putting your switch, then push it in. It’ll snap in with a satisfying click, and you should be good to move onto the next. Unlike keycaps, there’s not a required location for each switch. But, if you’re worried that you’re going to mess something up, I can safely say it takes a LOT to actually break something. Once I put my keyboard together and had it plugged in, I realized that I had two keys not working (we’ll talk about how to test in step 3). So I pulled those switches out and found that I really did a number on them: But don’t worry: not only did this mistake do no lasting damage to my computer or keyboard, I un-bent the prongs, plugged the switch back in, and it was good to go. And if you do manage to do enough damage that they’re unfixable, the switch packs come with several extra. I had around 20 leftover after building with the largest keyboard we had. Just don’t be too rough, and you’ll be fine. How do I put keycaps on my Glorious Mechanical Keyboard? Just push em on! This time, I’m not oversimplifying things. Putting keycaps on is even easier than switches. Just make sure your keycap is in the right place and facing the correct direction. In other words, don’t put your ‘A’ key upside-down in the ‘X’ key slot (though if you do, there’s a keycap puller with the keycaps and the base, and pulling keycaps off is as simple as lifting up with the puller). And to make things even easier, Glorious packed the keys in the order they appear on your keyboard. So unless you’re putting your keys in DVORAK order, it’ll be a breeze.  Final Steps and the Glorious PC App Once you’ve got your keyboard put together, the only thing left to do is final tests and a bit more customization. Once you’ve got your Glorious keyboard hooked up to your PC, head over to the Glorious website and download the GMMK software. While that’s downloading and installing, I’d recommend testing to make sure all your keys are fully working. I used keyboardtester.com as a quick way to test each of my keys and learn that I definitely did not install two correctly. Once you’ve tested all your keys, it’s time to dig into your backlighting. There are a few pre-loaded customizations on GMMK keyboards that can be hot-swapped with the Function Key + Navigation Keys (this does vary based on which base you used). The pre-loaded customizations are fairly standard, however, and don’t offer much customization.  The GMMK software is where you’ll do all of your in-depth color customizations. With per-key lighting and 16.8 million colors available, you can sink a lot of time into perfecting your aesthetic, and that’s before you dig into the lighting modes.  If you’re looking to add macros to your keyboard, the GMMK app is where you’ll do that as well. Macro programming is designed to be as simple as possible, responding to keypresses and fully adjustable.  The Review: In total, my build took around 50 minutes from start to finish. 5 minutes to unpack everything, 20 minutes to snap in the switches, 15 to place the keycaps, and another 10 to test everything and set up the Glorious software. That’s under an hour to build one of the nicest keyboards I’ve ever had the chance to work with. And if you’re concerned the only reason I like it so much is because I chose all the parts: that’s exactly the point. Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboards are designed to be fully customizable by you. You choose the parts, the colors, the style. At the end of your build, you’ll be left with a keyboard that you built from the ground up. And that build is part of the fun. It’s just difficult enough to require some attention, but if you’re comfortable, you can fall into a really pleasing rhythm while building.  Final Notes: Assembly is quick, easy, and fully customizable Mistakes can happen but are easy to fix and usually harmless The glorious PC app is simple and understandable If you’re looking for a completely customizable, changeable, and personalizable keyboard for around the price of a standard mechanical keyboard, you can’t do better than Glorious. Want to win your own custom keyboard? [Contest Ended!] By now, you’re probably hankering to put together your own keyboard. And we want to send you the parts to do so! We’ve got two complete builds waiting to be assembled, you just need to tell us the parts you would use from this list: Barebones Base: Glorious Barebones Compact Base Glorious Barebones Tenkeyless Base Switches: Kailh Copper Kailh Silver Kailh Box-Brown Kailh Box-Red Gateron Blue Gateron Red Keycaps: 104 Black Keycaps 104 White Keycaps 104 Aura Black Keycaps Post your build of choice in the comments and we’ll randomly select two users to get their full parts list for FREE.

You can get the Steel Series Apex 3 for around $40. I don't currently see the Apex 5 in our inventory, but it's usually in the $80-100 area.

Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin April 19 Hello @John_MAC508 and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. You may want to look at some of the Logitech keyboards and mice. Unless you get an Apple keyboard and mouse, some of the logitech keyboards won't allow you to customize the keys for Apple but will still work with Yosemite (10.10.5). Here below are two (2) keyboards that will work with your mac and they already have the Apple CMD keys, etc. Also what type of mac do you have (ex., Imac, Macbook Pro, etc.)? Link# 1: https://www.microcenter.com/product/456924/logitech-k380-bluetooth-slim-multi-device-keyboard Link# 2: https://www.microcenter.com/product/477248/logitech-mk850-performance-wireless-keyboard---mouse-combo 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook John_MAC508 ✭ April 19 Great, I'll check them out. Thank you. My oldie but goodie is MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010). I use it for work: photography and design. I've been only using a wired keyboard for many years and was leaning toward that, as wireless/bluetooth seem to either not always last or only until battery dies or something goes wrong—per customer reviews on Amazon, etc. Any thoughts? What do you think of this one? Macally Ultra Slim Wired Computer Keyboard and Silent Wired Mouse, Match with Your MacBook https://www.amazon.com/Macally-Computer-Keyboard-Silent-MacBook/dp/B08Z9RZZ6Q/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=Macally+104+Key+USB+Wired+Keyboard+and+Mouse+Combo+with+Apple+Shortcut+Key%E2%80%A6 It seems that Logitech is much better than Macally generally? I am also trying to find a computer that I can use my legacy Adobe CS4 apps and Lightroom 6, both of which I have on CD but also registered for digital download if needed. I no longer subscribe to Adobe CC as of this year. I've had trouble finding a solution computer, and have really regressed to using my ancient G4 for Adobe CS4 projects, which is a pain and the G4 is slooooowww. Any thoughts appreciated! Guess I should post this question elsewhere here, too? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 19 @John_MAC508 yes the Macally will work, but yes we'd recommend the Logitech products. For the computer you are looking for to use your Adobe software, are you wanting our suggestion on what type a system to go with? And are you looking for a laptop or desktop computer? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook John_MAC508 ✭ April 19 Thanks. Is there a Logitech wired full keyboard + mouse compatible with my Mac? I couldn't seem to find one, even chatting with Logitech online, and I assume they are no longer made? I would rather go with Logitech as it seems to be a better brand. I need a Mac (older version, obviously, or at least a pretty powerful Mac that will accommodate both versions of my CS4 and Lightroom 6. I'm open to either laptop or desktop, but leaning toward laptop if possible. Doing the math with versions/OS made it seem not too possible to get an all-in-one computer. So yes I am looking for your suggestions. I just assume you won't have anything of that vintage in your inventory. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 19 @John_MAC508 go with this logitech keyboard/mouse combo below. We really don't carry the older version of Mac. Have you thought about upgrading your software? With the CS Link: https://www.microcenter.com/product/477248/logitech-mk850-performance-wireless-keyboard---mouse-combo 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook John_MAC508 ✭ April 19 Yes, but that Logitech is wireless. What wired versions do you sell that are compatible and also under $50 (only if possible)? I no longer subscribe to Adobe CC software and only want to use my legacy Adobe versions that I own outright and don't have a monthly subscription fee. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 19 @John_MAC508 The MK850 has a usb interface so it can be used as wired or wireless. Your macbook pro mid 2010 should have 2 usb ports that the MK850 keyboard can connect to. The mouse that comes with it may be wireless only. This is all we have that will work with your mac. As far as your software and another Mac, unfortunately with the need to run the older versions of that software, its probably best to stay with your current Macbook pro mid 2010 system. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook John_MAC508 ✭ April 20 edited April 20 Oh, great! I've ordered it. Is there any chance of giving me a discount on the price, as it's actually out of my budget.

The whole keyboard that is not working. The mouse pad and cursor do work. I have tried to find a setting that may be causing the issue but have had no luck. Any thoughts on any settings to look through? I'm hoping this will not be a replacement issue. I am able to connect a wireless keyboard and everything functions correctly. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin July 2020 edited July 2020 The first thing I would try is reinstalling the keyboard drivers. Right click on your Start Button then go to Device Manager.  In Device Manager find the keyboard section and open the drop-down menu. Right-click any keyboards listed and select "uninstall device." When they're all gone, restart the computer and see if your keyboard is working again.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

This thing is great, but it did not come with the manual. I have had some issues with the keyboard back-lighting; I cannot figure out how to turn it on and off. I have tried just about every key on the keyboard with no luck. I have also gone through the control panel but cannot seem to find the option to control back-lighting. Does anybody know how I can figure this out? Thanks in advance.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin April 2020 Greetings.
