The Best Mechanical Keyboard is the one that feels right when you’re playing. You have to choose carefully as there are many great keyboards out there, but also pretty bad ones with spongy keys. A good gaming keyboard uses mechanical switches and not silicone membrane switches, which feels mushy and obsolete. The scissor-switch also uses dome switches and silicone membrane, but are more stable. These switches are often used on laptops but can be found on a select number of dedicated keyboards too. For gaming purposes, however, you need a mechanical keyboard to get the best experience. The downside with mechanical keyboards is the price tag as they can get pretty expensive compared to other types of keyboards.
