    Guys I have a question, What makes a gaming keyboard a keyboard.

    I know that a Gaming Mouse have those side buttons,That give you more hotkeys.
    Also its quicker access for gaming.

    But i never figure out what make a gaming mouse a gaming mouse.
    Maybe your like its easier to type/faster for typing,so you can hotkey faster.

    But if you buy a good quality keyboard it will do the same thing...

    Or maybe i bought bad keyboard (not from razer so no offense.) So it doesnt include what a gaming keyboard should include.

    Hey. Just a rule of thumb. You seem to be posting a lot of different threads about the same topic. This could count as spamming for Insider Rewards and may get you banned. In your case (for next time) I would recommend you create one thread on what make's a gaming mouse/keyboard classify under "gaming" and then ask if you need one all under one thread. Just a friendly reminder. :wink_:

    For your Answer:
    You have your gaming mouse definition a bit off as well. Since Razer makes some of the best gaming peripherals, I will tell you what makes their mice special and classify under gaming.

    A gaming mouse isn't always about the extra buttons although the Naga did start that trend, it's not the primary reason a gaming mouse costs more. A gaming mouse is more expensive and under "gaming" because the sensor on the bottom of the mouse is much better than that of a regular mouse and tracks without acceleration and is very precise along with handling much higher movement speeds without failure in readings.

    A gaming keyboard has many different reasons to be classified as "gaming" but here are some important ones. The keys in the keyboard can be re-programmable and you can set keys to do functions in order to make playing games more efficient. The actual switches used in the keyboard may be designed to respond quicker or give an audible "click" to know when the key has been activated to perform "double-clicks" and fast actuation without fail. Another thing Razer (and a few other) keyboards offer are anti-ghosting, which means you can press a lot of keys at once without the keyboard failing to read every keystroke.

    Although the reasons I gave you are valid, they are quite rudimentary and there are many more reasons to why a things may be classified as gaming. But the ones I gave you are there for a general rule of thumb and should help you differentiate between "gaming" and "regular" peripherals.

    From knowledge, you do tend to challenge answers from your questions.

    For me personally. gaming keyboard had programmable keys, the switches.
    the switches makes it different from other keyboard. such as mechanical switch is different thing from rubber dome keyboard. even its non-mechanical keybaord. its just feel different from an office keyboard

    and the last is, its durability. gaming keyboard tend to have more durability than a common keyboard.

    A good gaming keyboard will be mechanical switches, which actuate faster, easier, and more tactile. Gaming keyboards will also include macros to do more actions or combinations of keys, and many will feature a better logic board that processes keys faster, reducing lag, and will allow more keys to be pressed at the same time and still register. Many gaming keyboards, like the blackwidow and blackwidow chroma, include backlighting for when you have to type or game in the dark.

    First, that wasn't even the question he was answering. Your question was "What makes a Gaming KeyBoard a Gaming KeyBoard?" and not "What keyboard should I get?".
    Second, the thread doesn't have to be closed, just edit your title and put {Solved} after it to make it clear its been solved. Also, you can click the squares that say "Watch this thread"
    "and receive email notifications" so that the check mark is no longer there, which means (as it states), you won't get notifications from this thread?
