Best Gaming Keyboard 2011 - Steel Series 7g

In this article I'll be discussing the best gaming keyboard of 2011: the steel series 7g keyboard. There were many other gaming keyboards that came close (Razer Blackwidow Ultimate and Razer Lycosa) but nothing can compare to the durability, comfort, and overall functionality of the Steel Series 7g.

I gave the Steel Series 7g 5 out of 5 stars because its a mechanical keyboard with gold plating switches for extra durability. Not only does it have gold plating switches but they are also much quieter compared to the razer blackwidow keyboard. So if your not a fan of that annoying click-clank sound the steel series 7G is almost whisper quiet.

Extra usb and audio-out/mic-in ports also grace this keyboard just like the other contenders do, but what really sets the 7G apart from the others is the option to plug in the keyboard using the PS/2 connecter along with the traditional usb. Using the PS/2 connector will fully unlock the ability of the keyboard by allowing full anti-ghosting capabilities of the keyboard by bypassing the silly usb rendering system. This allows "true" 1000hz polling rate between the keyboard and the computer which eliminates any lag during keystrokes in intense situations in games.

Another factor that makes the 7G stand out is the weight of the keyboard itself. Steel series went beyond the traditional light-weight keyboards that are out right now by making the 7G heavy in weight. Increasing weight does mean that the keyboard will be harder to lug around. However, the increase in the keyboard weight also means extra durability for the keyboard. Steel Series made sure that if you accidentally drop it, bang it, or fall asleep on it, the keyboard will be able to live through all the punishment you give it.

The Steel Series 7g cost is around $150 with the Razer blackwidow costing $130 and the Lycosa $80. But like they say you get what you pay for and this deems true with the 7G.

Overall the Steel Series 7G keyboard is meant for the gaming enthusiasts but it will do well if your just an avid blogger and just need a comfortable keyboard to type on. With its 50+ million keyboard life expectancy, quiet mechanical keys, detachable wrist rest, anti-ghosting capabilities, and its 1000hz response rate; I highly recommend this keyboard to anyone looking to upgrade their current one. Yes its a bit pricey, but you probably wont have to buy another keyboard for the next 10+ years. Which is why the best gaming keyboard 2011 award goes to Steel Series 7G.

I remember reading about this in APC. Mechanical keyboards are almost impossible to kill. Mine's over 10 years old, and still going strong. I know what I'll be upgrading to when it fails, though :)
