Editor's Notes

December 30, 2018:

We like to think we know a thing or two about both gaming and typing here at the EZVid Wiki. One of the things that makes high-quality mechanical boards stand out is their ability to accept replacement keycaps. So, we avoided some of the overpriced big-name brands that use a non-standard bottom row, opting for models that offer the most in terms of keycap customization. Redragon makes a couple really cost-effective options, including one of the few we found with metal keycaps. Royal Kludge and iKBC both get high marks from self-professed keyboard enthusiasts, though the latter's models can be pricey. The MonoPrice sports some of the latest technology, and the Mistel is a good choice if you spend many hours perched in front of pages and pages of code. The Glorious GMMK was created for people who want the most control possible over their keyboard, as it's compatible with nearly every popular, third-party switch on the market. HyperX extends their headphone mastery into this category, as well, with one of the best options for gaming around. We like this E-Element version because it's both flashy and straightforward, and is available in black and white retro finishes to suit your decor.
