Best Gaming Keyboard in 2020 (April Reviews)

To help you find the best gaming keyboard, we ran dozens of models through their paces, testing for a range of functions that increase gaming efficacy, including the ability to easily program a full range of key commands, backlighted keys for gaming in the dark, spill-resistant designs and wide compatibility with various gaming ecosystems. We also tended to favor products manufactured with durable components and boasting long-lasting warranties (minimum of two years.)

The best product we tried was the Razer Cynosa Chroma Gaming Keyboard, which features a full range of gaming-centric features, including the ability to execute ten hot key commands at once, for intense gaming applications, a fully adjustable keybed, which allows each and every key to be programmed as a hot key command, a spill-resistant design and a gorgeous backlight, which allows for the combination of 16.8 million colors to create a unique aesthetic. The company also throws in a two year warranty, which is nice, and free use of a cloud save, allowing users to save individually designed keybeds.
