Like mice dedicated to gaming, the world of keyboards offers a very vast choice. It is therefore easy to get lost when it comes to choosing a keyboard suited to your uses.

Don't worry, this guide is intended to help you choose which will be your next keyboard among the best of 2024. Of course, this will evolve depending on the releases of the year.

When it comes to choosing a keyboard, there are many parameters to take into account. If of course your budget is a determining criterion, you should still not rush to the cheapest keyboard which will not necessarily correspond to your needs.

Thus, we have determined 4 other criteria other than budget that will help you choose the ideal keyboard.

What use for this keyboard ?

The use you will mainly have of your keyboard is a determining factor in choosing it. Are you mainly going to use it for word processing ? For general office automation ? Data entry into Excel tables ? For gaming& ;nbsp;?

These are questions that you will need to think about quickly in order to choose the ideal keyboard. Don't worry, the next lines of this guide will take into account the different scenarios.

Keyboard size

If you thought before joining this guide that all keyboards were the same in size, that's not the case! Indeed, we find formats ranging from the smallest to the largest, being compact keyboards, tenkeyless, and full size.

They each have their advantages and disadvantages, with compact and tenkeyless taking up less space on a desk and being more easily transportable, but they sacrifice the numeric keypad. In comparison, full-size keyboards have all the keys of a keyboard including the numeric keypad, but take up a lot of space on the desk which can interfere with mouse movements, for example.

Thus, a person working regularly on Excel will choose a full size with numeric keypad, while a gamer will tend to favor tenkeyless.

Mechanics or membrane?

Here is the last essential point in choosing a keyboard. There are generally two types of key technology, either membrane or mechanical.

Again, both types of technology impose compromises. Mechanical keyboards offer a particularly pleasant feeling and typing feedback: you know, that satisfying little clicking sound, but the noise of which will drive all your open space colleagues within a radius of at least 5 meters crazy.< /p>

In comparison, membrane keyboards are cheaper, much less noisy, but do not offer the characteristic and pleasant typing sensation of mechanical keyboards. In life, you have to make choices.

Wireless or wireless?

Overall, most of the cheaper keyboards will be wired, while the higher end ones will not. Often, gamers prefer wired keyboards to ensure a reliable, latency-free connection, while office enthusiasts will appreciate not having a cable that will clutter up their work area a little more.

It still sometimes happens that manufacturers offer wireless solutions suitable for gaming, as we will see in our section of the guide dedicated to the best keyboards for gamers.

When you are a competitive gamer, it is necessary to have a lot of space at the mouse level to make sometimes large gestures. Thus, the advantage of a keyboard without a numeric keypad is to save this precious space on the desk, which is the bias of the Logitech G Pro which does not sacrifice the multimedia keys however.

Of a very robust design, it nevertheless remains easily transportable using its rigid transport box provided. Offering pleasant typing, it is one of the rare keyboards dedicated to gamers to offer a wireless experience. With the USB dongle and Lightspeed technology, there is no latency. We will particularly appreciate its excellent autonomy, which uses a battery instead of a battery system as Logitech often tends to implement.
