If you’re serious about gaming, you’ve likely already thrown a lot of cash at your gaming PC build which may make buying the cheapest keyboard you can find rather tempting.

However, you would be doing yourself and your hard-earned cash a disservice if you didn’t invest in one of the best gaming keyboards available.

As 2018 is ending, we’ve rounded up the best gaming keyboards released this year and you should absolutely add one of them to your Christmas wish list.

Razer Huntsman Elite
Thanks to the Huntsman’s optomechanical switches, Razer has taken actuation and speed to whole new level. Optomechanical may sound like a mouthful, but Razer has effectively taken mechanical switches and integrated optical sensors making it one of the fastest gaming keyboards ever.

Not only is it superfast, but it’s also very comfortable to type on and looks slick and cool thanks to the RGB lighting. The interface is wired which requires 2 USB cables for power and the Huntsman also has keyboard backlighting and programmable keys.

Roccat Vulcan 120 Aimo
Gaming keyboards are holding steady at abandoning Cherry MX switches in favour for custom ones and the Roccat Vulcan 120 Aimo is no exception. Not only does this spectacular gaming keyboard offer switches with the tactile feedback that gamers demand, but it’s also incredibly comfortable to type on and won’t wake up your whole household.

With a wired interface, keyboard backlighting perfect for the best online pokies Australia and programmable keys, add in the awe-inspiring aesthetics and it becomes clear that the Roccat Vulcan 120 Aimo is one of the best gaming keyboards released in 2018.

Logitech G513
When considering a gaming keyboard, it’s important to remember that while Cherry MX Red keys are amazing and entertaining, they are less than ideal for every day typing. With this in mind, it becomes apparent why Logitech has stolen the show with their G513 and its Romer-G Linear switches. The best way to describe the G513 is ‘gaming in silence’ and thanks to its brushed metal finish it is virtually resistant to fingerprints.

With a wire interface, keyboard backlighting, programmable keys, and gorgeous RGB lighting, the G513 should be added to every gamer’s Christmas wish list immediately.

Cooler Master MasterSet MS120
Marketed as a keyboard and mouse set, the Cooler Master MasterSet MS120 may fall short on the mouse, but the keyboard completely dominates the spotlight.

The switches provide plenty of tactile feedback and the deep travel of more traditionally mechanical keyboards but won’t wake up your entire neighbourhood while you furiously pound away at it.

With a compact design, affordable price point, wired interface and keyboard backlighting, the MasterSet MS120 is by far the best gaming keyboard in its price category.

Decisions, Decisions
So, there you have it! A round up of the 4 best gaming keyboards released this year. Hopefully our reviews have made your decision-making process a lot easier and you already know which keyboard you want to add to your gaming build.
