Game Rant's Favorite Keyboards of 2021

When it comes to precision and speed in online gaming, keyboard and mouse is the way to go. One thing to consider, however, is that unlike one standard controller to the next, keyboards are not created equally. There are a lot of things to consider, depending on the player’s style and hand size, the form factor of the keyboard, the speed and life of the keys, and so on.

As such, it’s always best to keep an eye on the latest keyboard to hit the market. Some really refine what this generation has accomplished, while others really push the envelope. Here are Game Rant’s favorite keyboards from this year.

SteelSeries Apex 3 TKL Keyboard

The SteelSeries Apex 3 TKL takes the increasingly popular Tenkeyless form factor and makes it affordable, durable, functional, and stylish. Everything from the life of the keys to the overall shape of the keyboard makes it near-universal for use, while promoting awesome RGB software for that added flair. There’s no mistake though—when it comes to use, the Apex 3 TKL is one of the best gaming keyboards on the market, taking every aspect up to the pro level.

Corsair K70

The Corsair K70 delivers all the bang for its buck with strong extra features, a variety of cherry switches that impact input and approach (allowing players to find their preferred set-up), completely programmable keys, and far more. The bottom line here is pretty simple: it’s definitely an investment, as any strong gaming keyboard is, but it’s a smart one.

Mountain Everest Max

The Mountain Everest Max is a modular mechanical keyboard that stands apart due to its unique placement options. For example, the numpad can be attached on either the left or right side, the media dock sits up top but can be on the left or right side, and the rest is magnetic, really allowing a player to position themselves with their most comfortable options. The strong performance on top of that makes the Mountain Everest Max stand out.

Corsair K65

The Corsair K65 can do anything any other keyboard really can. It too features a tenkeyless design, making it more compact than other keyboards, but its aircraft-grade frame means nothing is going to happen to it in transit. This also means it's ideal for those who travel and game a lot; it has several advanced and lighting options for unlimited customization, for those who want to show off while they game. Overall, the Corsair K65 is a mid-to-high grade gaming keyboard that can really change the game.

Razer Huntsman V2

Iteration can often lead to strong, if not immediately obvious, innovation. For the Razer Huntsman V2, Razer continues to refine its formula to bring out the best of the best—customizable key actuation, tactile clicks, strong typing and gaming experiences, a solid wrist rest for longer play, intuitive feedback, and far more. Truly, just about any strong adjective related to gaming can be applied to the Razer Huntsman V2.
