Here are the best gaming keyboards in 2021, including Corsair K100 RGB Optical vs Mountain Everest Max vs Razer Cynosa Chroma.

Gaming Keyboards in 2021

Keyboards have been evolving from their earlier iterations of a clunky PC accessory as manufacturers realized that gamers and even people in the office interact most with it other than the mouse, as per PC Gamer.

That said, gamers have been very keen on the keyboards that their PC setup is sporting. As such, gaming accessories companies like Razer and Corsair tried packing their keyboards with the best features out there.

However, given the increasing focus on keyboards, PC owners are having a hard time choosing from the plethora of options available.

That is why this guide is here to help you narrow down your choices to the best offerings in the market.

It is worth noting that the best gaming keyboard still depends on the user's preferences, which means that there is no fits-all option in this category. That said, we've included options that could likely fill up different needs of PC owners.

Corsair K100 RGB Optical

Although this gaming mechanical keyboard flaunts almost all of the features that gamers nowadays are looking for, its size could eat up a massive space from your desk. Thus, restricting the provision to move your mouse--unless you have a humongous table.

The Corsair K100 RGB Option sports tons of functions, such as the metal volume wheel, USB passthrough, Numpad, and, as the name suggests, RGB lighting, according to its website.

On top of its multiple additional features, it still hits the basics fine with its responsive keys for the price tag of $189.99.

Razer Cynosa Chroma

On the other hand, this membrane gaming keyboard still does an impressive job despite its low price tag, which costs $39.99. Not to mention that it does not feature the sought-after mechanical keys.

Yes, some people shut down any membrane keyboards as they prefer the experience of mechanical keys. However, it is worth noting that the Razer Cynosa Chroma is one of the best-feeling low-profile keys, which makes it perfect for the membrane key lovers out there, but is also worth trying for mechanical fans.

Not just that, the RGB lighting of this gaming keyboard is one of its highlights with a per-key option.
