Perhaps being able to type at the speed of thought is of importance to your creative or professional life, or maybe, if you're a gamer, it enhances your leisure time. Whatever your reason, you'll have to choose between mechanical and membrane models, and you'll also need to decide how much you're willing to spend.

Editor's Notes

February 10, 2019:

Non-gamers should not be scared off by the inclinations of some of our top picks. Though some of them seem to be designed for gamers—a few even being explicitly marketed towards them—this doesn't mean that they're not incredible in other contexts, too. An example of this is the Roccat Vulcan 100 Aimo, which could just as easily serve someone working in audio transcription. It should come as no surprise that our top picks are mech models, because these tend to have a spring action most conducive to quick typing. We have included a few membrane models, both because of their portability and practicality (i.e., quiet in work environments), and because of their affordability, but anyone with a true need for speed will likely be better served by skipping to our top 5 choices.

Daniel is a writer, musician, and frequent traveler with a bachelor’s in creative writing from the State University of New York. In recent years, his writing chops have developed alongside his musical skills, thanks to a rich double life. During the day, he apprenticed with “Rolling Stone” journalist and critic Will Hermes, and when the sun set, he and his NYC-based, four-piece band gigged at high-end venues across the northeastern United States. His affinity for sharing things he's passionate about has culminated in nine years of experience as a music teacher at elementary schools, where he honed his ability to simplify and elucidate concepts to the uninitiated. All considered, he feels most at home writing about instruments, audio electronics and backpacking gear.
