    Exclamation Best Gaming Keyboard for World of Warcraft

    Im sure you hear this ALL the time but I gotta get some more opinions. Ive searched everywhere looking for the best gaming keyboard for an mmo and I was going to buy the Razor Anansi for my bf for Christmas but cant find it anywhere for sale. Then was gonna get him the Saitek Cyborg but not sure if its as awesome as it seems. G15 is bleh. Screen would be useless anyways. I need something with backlighting and macro keys. I know that much. The Saitek has all of the above but the macro keys are a pretty good distance from WASD which makes them useless. Im already going to get him the Razor Naga Molten Core gaming mouse for his birthday. And I need a badass gaming keyboard to go with it.

    Also what do you guys think of the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110?

    well.... no idea but i've seen gaming keyboards and they are nothing like normal keyboards ~ 40 buttons, round-ish with a little slope so your hand/ palm fits comfy, utterly useless outside of gaming environment.... Do you mean those ?

    For WoW? Nonsense
    Best Keyboard though? Logitech G19

    Personally i think the "Gaming" Keyboards are giant waste of space, time, and money. I Also hear their not the most reliable. So i went with the Logitech G13 because it was thousand times cheaper then all other gaming keyboards. And you get MORE buttons. I use it and it works fantastic.

    I use an Ideazon MERC. Well, it's now Steelseries - But whatever. Depending on how you play, it might not be ideal to you, but for my setup it works great. Plus I play FPS games half the time and I love my keyboard for CoD.

    I need something more badass. Not too thrilled about the lcd screen. Where the keyboard will be going on the computer desk you wouldnt be able to see the lcd screen.

    Razor Lycosa is pretty nice. I like the rubber key's. I also like the G110 and G510. Anyone know anything about the Saitek Cyborg keyboard?

    Dont bother with the Saitek Cyborg. I bought one once, the keys are too far apart and the macro keys make the whole keyboard way too wide. Id go with the Razer Anansi as you said, or the Lycosa if the macro keys aren't that massive a deal. But NOT the Arctosa as I did. It's exactly the same as the Lycosa, but cheaper and it doesn't actually have letters on the keys. Well it does, but they're practically invisible.

    Also, if you cant find the Anansi just buy it off the Razer website

    EDIT: After some super careful research, the Arctosa, which I have is 47cm in length, and as a bit of a guesstimate the Cyborg would be like 55cm or something, which is pretty big.

    EDIT2: And oh yeh, the Cyborgs macro keys are like impossible to configure.

    Have you actually had one?
    Because I can say, without a doubt, that it was the worst keyboard I have ever owned, the ones they give away with computers are a better quality.

    I was looking at the sidewinder keyboard a while ago, since it has a detachable numpad, which would be good for me considered my desktop space.

    I use a Logitech G11, since it's one of the only relativly cheap ones that's good and has media keys. I don't use the macro keys (being my hand is either on the Nostromo, or engaged in other... "more productive tasks" [Obviously, this means moderating the forums ]), but it's got just the right setup for me.

    Every time i buy a new keyboard, i have to spend a few hours adapting to the various differences - Key height, key depression, response, spacing, etc. as well as how capable it is for touchtyping (without the usual 8-keys finger placement). I've gone through around 15 different keyboards in 4-5 years, and the ones that lasted the longest were Saitek Eclipse (which i bought another after the first broke, since they were so excellent) and this G11.

    Basically, we can't tell you what keyboard will be best. It's very much a decision that you need to come to on your own, purely because there's people out there that can't live with keys being too far apart (even 1mm is quite a lot when it comes to adapting), too close, too easy to press, too difficult to press, too high, not high enough, etc.

    For example, an old Microsoft Basic keyboard i had, had VERY thin keys. It was easy to adapt to, but even after 6 months of use, it was still difficult to touchtype on, simply because it's easier for me to touchtype by remembering the gaps between keys. Because the keys were thin profile, it was often difficult to find these gaps. Likewise, i've had keyboards that had trouble responding to my key presses, as though i hadn't hit it hard enough.

    This G11 is on par with the Saitek Eclipse i had, and it just works. Gaming on it would be adequate i'd imagine, but as i said, i use a Nostromo gamepad for WoW (and i don't find time to play other games with work these days).

    For Mice, Roccat Kone, without a doubt. Don't EVER get a Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse unless it's got a metal scroll wheel. The rubber they use, particularly on the X5, will start to break up after 3 months or so. It got to the point with mine where it was clogging underneath preventing me from scrolling properly. Replaced it with a Roccat Kone v2 (ensure you get v2, as the v1 scrollwheel will break within a week due to an engineering overlook), and a week later it's still looking perfect. I have no doubt that even in a year, it'll still look tops.

    I have owned a Razer Tarantula, Lycosa, and a Logitech G15. In my personal opinion, I much preferred the G15 over the others. I like the keys that stand out on the G15 and when compared to the Lycosa, I found it hard to know where the keys were located on the Lycosa. The Tarantula was great except it wasn't back lit so I couldn't see the keys in my dark room.
