If you are looking for the best gaming keyboard, this is a good one. Gamers don't just buy gaming keyboards because they light up in pretty colors, although that's always a cool bonus. Gamers buy expensive peripherals because it helps them win gaming on their gaming laptops.\r\n\r\nThe Scorpion K10 from SmartGenius is no different. It may put on a nice light show, but this keyboard is all about upping your game.\r\nWhat Makes the K10 Special\r\nThis gaming keyboard has a very mechanical feel to the keys, offering quick response times. When you hit a key to perform an\u00a0action in the game, you know for sure that your command was given. There's no doubt or guessing. Another great feature is that it has a 19 anti-ghosting key design, that allows you to press any of them simultaneously for better gaming performance.\r\n\r\nIf you like to carry a plethora of weapons in-game, you'll love having up to 12 keys for your guns, because you can\u00a0customize the F1 to F12 keys for different gaming weapons.\r\n\r\nSwitch between your Ak-47 and your Uzi with one key. Or maybe you need to ditch your rifle for a\u00a0survival knife. Just hit the key. You can accomplish this through the SmartGenius App.\r\n\r\nThe keyboard includes a host of smart gaming settings as well. You can save your\u00a0key settings as profiles and these can be swapped out automatically. Using Genius cloud, you can get a bunch of optimized gaming settings.\r\nThe K10 Software\r\nThe K10 uses the same SmartGenius software as all other Genius products, so it won't provide a ton of extra options, but that's okay because you are getting a great gaming keyboard for a great price.\r\n\r\nLike I said, it's not about a pretty light show, but cool visuals\u00a0are always nice. This keyboard comes with multi-color options and brightness modes for a wide variety of RGB effects.\r\n\r\nThe Scorpion K10 Smart Gaming Keyboard is compatible with\u00a0Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or later.\u00a0 Naturally, you can use the K10 for non-gaming as well and it will serve as a perfectly adequate device for all of your work. I would consider this a great buy for any gamer who is just getting into buying accessories. It seems like a great first step toward more expensive options.
