What does a good keyboard have to have to play?

A keyboard is a tool . You have to look for comfort for long periods of use, usability and practicality; You have to be realistic and recognize that there is no such thing as a low-end product. Any stock generic performs better than an expensive gamer toy. With that said, here we go:

Basic requirements of the gaming keyboard

Any seasoned PC gamer has had to deal with good and bad keyboards. Before deciding on a specific model, there are a few preliminary considerations that we must take into account:

  1. Backlit keys. It's key for those late-night games where you're alone in front of the screen and headphones. One thing is a handful of colored LEDs like the control panel of the Enterprise and another is a soft and uniform light, preferably in cool tones, white or bluish.
  2. Numeric keyboard. Here it is easy to be torn between the comfort of a compact element that, in turn, dispenses with this extra section, and one that carries it. The reason is obvious: to have the mouse closer. That is why the main manufacturers design their long and short versions . It depends on taste, but a numeric keypad is also a great resource for programming shortcuts.
  3. Durability. For this the requirement is simple: we need a mechanical keyboard . Cheap plastic membranes get stuck, lose sensitivity and their flat angle requires a conscious effort to assimilate where each key is: it does not create such an organic overall image.
  4. Macros. Macro keys are a must have among gamers . These are actions that must be executed with key combinations. In an MMORPG, where you need commands to cast spells or give commands, they serve as a shortcut. They consist of one or more rows of keys.

Gamer keyboard plugins

Lenovo offers specific products for gamers in its portfolio as complements to video game keyboards. On the one hand, we have a precision mouse with nine programmable buttons and up to 8,200 customizable point-to-point protocol settings, a polling rate of up to 1,000 hertz, and weight tuning; on the other, a mat made of high-density fabric to optimize  gaming sessions , with a non-slip rubber base that is resistant to spills and other accidents..

In short, the unbeatable keyboard must meet as many requirements as our favorite game asks of us and, incidentally, do it comfortably. Because, first of all, if you don't feel comfortable with something, it's not worth it. Ergonomics is key to avoiding health problems .
