A keyboard is a keyboard, right? If you’re the average PC user, then for the most part, yes. However, if you are a hardcore PC gamer, the right keyboard can make all the difference. While fancy buttons and layouts are essential, it doesn’t hurt to have one that stands out just a bit. That’s why I’ve taken a liking to this new Saitek Cyborg.
I use a gaming keyboard from Ideazon which I love. My favorite feature is the ability to have backlit keys in my choice of three colors. The backlit keys are pretty much all-or-nothing, whereas the new Cyborg breaks up your keys into a few different zones like your WASD buttons and your number pad. What this does is allow you to assign different colors to each zone. They also put metal plating over the WASD, space bar and arrow keys to make them really stand out.
You also get a few programmable buttons for various commands and macros within your game of choice. In all, this seems like a pretty cool choice for gamers. You’ll be able to pick one up in March for around $80.
