Razer Arctosa Gaming Keyboard

You could be easily fooled into thinking that the Arctosa is just a regular keyboard, and not the gaming titan it claims to be.

SteelSeries Merc Stealth Gaming Keyboard

The SteelSeries Merc Stealth gaming keyboard updates an already innovative design by adding lights and a USB hub. Though the design may not be for everyone, the Stealth Merc should satisfy gamers who want more than just a unique key layout.

Ideazon Merc Gaming Keyboard

The Ideazon Merc Gaming Keyboard brings some innovation to the typical game keyboard by creating a separate cluster of game keys in a supposedly easier-to-use layout. We didn't take a shine to the game pad, though, and in general, the Merc's response wasn't as tight as we hoped for. It's cheap though, and its software is powerful. Those features add value, just don't expect the Merc to help you win any Quake tournaments.

Logitech G11 Gaming Keyboard

Logitech's G11 Gaming Keyboard has neither the high-tech flash nor the built-in LCD screen of Logitech's G15 model, but otherwise the two keyboards are exactly the same. Nongamers might not be too interested, but thanks a vast array of customizable keys and sharp blue LED backlighting, we imagine all kinds of PC gamers could benefit from it.

Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard

Logitech's G15 Gaming Keyboard is an ambitious attempt at the ultimate frag aid. The LCD screen is an inventive addition, but other features such as customizable keys, blue LED backlighting, and built-in USB ports have more practical applications. If you're serious about gaming and like to tinker with mini apps, the G15 is the keyboard for you.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

At $125, the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is a competitively priced mechanical gaming keyboard in its range. We just wish Razer had done more to set this "Ultimate" edition apart from Razer's more affordable standard BlackWidow.

Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard (Black)

Logitech's revised version of its already distinctive G15 gaming keyboard adds polish and trims some of the fat. Throw in the now-mature user community that churns out lots of homebrew apps for the built-in LCD screen, and we'd recommend this keyboard to any PC gamer as a unique, useful, and customizable input device.

Logitech G19 Programmable Gaming Keyboard with Color Display

Logitech's $200 G19 Gaming Keyboard boasts a built-in color LCD with exciting capabilities, as well as lots of little improvements over previous models. But with few apps--thus far--that take advantage of the screen in a meaningful way, the G19's potential remains largely untapped. Until the community software effort gets rolling, we can't recommend spending this much on a keyboard that, while flashy, has yet to realize its full potential.
