Which keyboard is the best for tetris. Explain why in a 30000 word essay.
Someone should explain steelseries 7G/6Gv2
I'll explain X4 once i get it.
microsoft Sidewinder X4 is a "budget" gaming keyboard. But it packs a punch. at $50, it is the cheapest gaming keyboard, yet is the cheapest with Backlighting, and has almost full anti-keylock (important for tetris because you press 7 random keys on the keyboard and locking = gay). It doesnt have perfect anti-locking (one sensor per key) but it has a complex matrix that is cheap to produce and hence has up to 17 alpha-keys which i think is plenty.
Is there a way to add polls. We should get people to vote on stuff like
Also props to the Unicomp buckling spring boards and Filco Cherry keyswitch boards.
I think you are using the term "ghosting" wrong, by the way. It shouldn't have anything to do with "locking" as you put it (not being able to press more keys), it is when key signals are sent for keys that weren't pressed. My Filco has full N-Key rollover, so I can press as many as I want
Edit: I'd really like to try a linear force keyboard though. That'd probably be nicer for Tetris, but I don't know if anybody would really need a keyboard full of those switches. I wonder what it would take to swap out just my arrow keys or something...
i use the keyboard attached to my laptop, but that first one looked cool
Yes you can make a poll, but it has to be on the first post and you can't edit your post later on to include it. In other words it's too late for this thread unless you want to remake.
I'm using the Steelseries 7G:
It's pricey (~$130 US) but it's the best keyboard I've ever used. It doesn't have all the lights, extra buttons, and special features that some gaming keyboards offer, but it's high quality and feels great. It's a bit loud though.
It has antighosting meaning you can press a ton of keys at once and it will all register. It uses mechanical switches, has gold plated connectors for faster response time, and shorter keypress length meaning even a light tap will register.
I haven't tried the 6Gv2 yet but it looks very close to the 7G. It's around $30 less, and from what I've read it has pretty much all the same features. They removed a few things like the handrest and stuff but I never even use that anyway, the thing is huge.
My keyboard (and member DraKKiE's keyboard) before this was a Dell SK-8110:
It was around $10 US and is also another keyboard I could recommend. It's quiet, lasts long and the letterings on the keys don't wear out.
I've also tried a so-called gaming keyboard called Z-Board and all I can say is stay away.
This keyboard is foldable and I think there's many different skins for it. It's horrible for Tetris, the keys sometimes don't register and you have to press them pretty hard. It's a very stiff keyboard and not worth the money.
I'm pretty interested in the Razer brand keyboards though, they look nice but I haven't had the chance to try them out yet.
pro keyboard: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/47/Space-cadet.jpg
i use the touchscreen on my ipad
its a 100$ keyboard that is now 65$ -25$ rebate = $40 + shipping.
im a huge fan of logitech (i have their mice, keyboard, headset, etc.)
saitek keyboard 30$ shipped; i dont know much about this one, i just posted it cause it was cheap
I use a standard dell one which came with my comp, works well enough for me- what are the benefits in tetris of having a nicer one anyway?
well relaly it depends on which keys you use.
but for my current keyboard, it locks on z + c, so i cnat hold + rotate left.
It also ghosts on x + c (sending space) so everytime i rotate right + hold it drops the next piece in the centre.
I like the ones that have wrist support, makes it easier to play with the arrows.
after reading tons of keyboard crap,
cherry-switch keyboards seem to be the win for cheapo gamers like me.
+Responsible for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfDPUAluwpo and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMBO-6aqnTU.
+Allows many simultaneous keypresses. Most importantly, it will allow things like 3 arrows + ZXC + Shift or 2 arrows + ZXC + Shift + Space.
+Fairly short travel, engage distance.
+Shape of up/down arrow keys good for flicking drop-locks in TGM-style games.
-Does not allow SDF + Space + JKL, but does allow up to 6 in that combo, weird layouts like Shift + ZX + Space + BNM, etc.. (Sorry music game players, you're going to have to make do with some awkward layouts if you want to get those BS 7 key holds. :P)
Overall, this keyboard has served me very well. I use it just about every time I'm playing games. My laptop keyboard is really bad for most games since it blocks important key combinations, but I do use it for music games since it accepts SDF + Space + JKL. For most everything else, though, my keyboard of choice is the trusty m7803.
I've gone through cheap and pricey keyboards, but this is the one I've stayed with.
my brother uses an arctosa. It seems pretty good. fairly light to press.
FKKKKKKKKK I WANT A MECHANICAL KEYBOARD
I use the wireless POS that came with my comp that cuts out ever 5 or so minutes...
My only issue is that its wireless, I like having a cable.
cables are yay. i'm a cable freak
I have a laptop, but i plug it into lan
I have a wired mouse.
i have wired headset because the speakers on my laptop are too lao'd
I don't really care what keyboard i play on at all.
The only time I was surprised was when I played on an apple keyboard. The keys are pretty thin so it seemed like i was able to respond a lot faster. I don't really see any other benefits to other keyboards.
Thinking about getting one of those Tron Keyboards that were announced:
The WiiMote looks kinda awesome, too.
i have the best keyboard in the woorrrlldd
Ge Ho97764 Power Keyboard
BAM! so great, they couldn't make the picture bigger for you
and it's great for a $10 keyboard -coughs
>_< i play tetris mostly on my laptop though
sony's have nice keyboards imo .. for laptops =P
Thermaltake just came out with this, ~$149 U.S.
Seems to have everything the Steelseries 7G has along with 1000 mhz polling rate.
Just get this one its the best
This is what I have. I like it.
razer came out with a gaming mechanical:
That is the keyboard I use, and yes, I use those microscopic arrow keys. I am considering moving to PL;' as a replacement for them, but that won't happen immediately. *Changes keys in NullpoMino.*
I need a keyboard that, obviously functions well, is quiet (no fxcking clacking keys).
50 bucks is my ceiling. (I'm an intern, fxck off)
Is it true that PS/2 keyboards perform better than USB ones? I found this off of steelseries 7G website:
I would never trust marketing propaganda.
Just curious, what keyboards do you guys use? My laptop keyboard isn't working out too well right now.
shizi and i use the das professional keyboards.
his is das professional clicky
mine is das professional tactile soft
. __ . when mine falls apart (if ever) i'm going to get the blank das ultimate keyboard - it doesnt have inscriptions on the keys.
I use a very standard and generic http://z0ltan77.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/tastatura-cu-fir1.jpg, but I WISH I had a Das Professional Keyboard. I would feel awesome everytime I typed.
Those look so expensive though. :/
Would any of you happen to know where I could get one cheap (around $60)?
Good keyboards cost money...
(Of course, if you don't know firsthand what makes a good keyboard for your purposes, it may not be worth springing for one)
Maybe he's not looking for a good keyboard... He only asked what we used and that he wanted to buy one.
If you're looking for just any ol keyboard cheapest I've seen is 10$ but it sucks
Hmm, yeah I guess I'm looking for a somewhat decent one? I only go about 2.5-2.7ish pps and there are still quite a bit of lost key inputs when I'm playing. Maybe my keyboard's just old and worn out, not sure.
Thanks everyone for the help though!
i have a steelseries 6gv2, but i subbed thirty with just a regular 20 dollar keybored
i subbed thirty more often with this one though
I don't think keyboard will have any performance impact, it just feels nicer
As long as ur keyboard doesn't drop inputs or anything stupid, a rubber dome is completely fine.
I just like finger-gasms everytime i press keys.
I'm using a http://www.amazon.com/Storm-QuickFire-Rapid-Mechanical-SGK-4000-GKCC1-US/dp/B007VDFSG0, although I think the red cherries are also worth looking into. Since it's tenkeyless, I also have a separate numpad on the side.
Mine's nice for typing and tetris - it's a Corsair K60 - and Polaris has got the K90. I'm sure everyone's nice keyboards are nice for tetris. The thing with membrane keyboards is that you don't know what you're gonna get when you buy it - it's more of a risk. My old membrane keyboard was good, but I have typed on so many worse ones!
Everyone's keyboards look so nice! So hard for me to decide which one to get. :/
I really appreciate everyone's help though!
Try going to a store and experimenting with switches.
I've always used my laptop keyboard, i've many times wondered what it's like to play on a mechanical one, but
i dont want too invest in it because i dont think it'll be much different.
I had a 6gv2 with black switches, and now I'm using a http://dark-disaster.blogspot.com/2011/09/my-first-mechanical-keyboard-plu-ml_16.html with red switches. IMO mech keyboards dont really matter much when playing tetris, I only have it because I was a hardcore rhythm gamer. If you really want one then I would recommend red switches, since it take very little force to push the key down. Blue is better in terms of finger endurance , and red is better for speed.
I've been using the same SteelSeries 7G for about 4 years now, and it works just like new. Along with the feel, responsiveness and sound it makes, I like how easy mechanical keyboards are to clean. It's hands down the most reliable keyboard I've used, and I don't regret the $140 I paid for it back then. I think it's $110ish now.
I have my eyes set on the Steelseries 6GV2 Cherry Red Edition though, supposed to be similar to the 7g but requires even less pressure for keypresses.
Also they can take a beating, and last a long time.... compared to my prevous keyboards anyway. Another thing I like is that the lettering on the keys haven't faded much after 4 years. Keys and switches aside, the weight and feel of the keyboard itself is nice, it's pretty heavy for a keyboard and just feels high quality overall.
how much of a difference does keyboard even make? i have some crappy laptop keyboard on a vaio...
Keyboard you say hmmmm .. maybe thats why I still didnt sub 40 ahah
this has been the first time ever that i quoted the wrong person, just noticed that, meant to quote salander
Apparently Amazon has the SteelSeries 6Gv2 with Red Cherry Switches for only $100 (no shipping).
Such a good deal!
I got this keyboard today as a present:
seems very comfortable so far as I dont have to press the keys so hard, good for tetoris
The biggest thing I've found with a mechanical keyboard is that das is quicker with it, because the time it takes for the key to go from halfway down to bottoming out is included in the mech keyboard in the das but not in the old keyboard. That in itself enabled me to go 3 secs faster in tf.
Yay! My parents let me buy the Steelseries 6Gv2!
now we'll have the same keyboard! wooo
I think it also depends on what game you're playing.
I have a Levetron and for me it works awesomely on Cultris. It's like my brain is connected to the machine, it responds to every little tap flawlessly.
It works quite well with Heboris, not that great with Nullpomino, and TF is just complete doodoo.
It can DAS really well in Nullpo but it seems to hate tap spam in that game so I have to be careful to not double tap too quickly.
I've been stuck at 34.95 for a while now (I guess not THAT long, but I get frustrated easily), and I was wondering if people thought that getting a better keyboard would make a significant difference in my playing speed. Right now i just use my mac laptop keyboard, which I could conceive of being suboptimal (though the action on it is fairly low, and i definitely am quite used to it). Does anyone have any input on whether or not keyboard changing would help?
When I was trying to sub 40, I bought a blue switch mechanical keyboard and I beat my record that night (around 3 hours play time). I feel the main reason I prefer mechanical keyboards is that they are easier to use. I could happily tap away for hours without the slightest discomfort, whereas on a normal or my current (brown switch) keyboard feel discomfort after 5 minutes.
I use a Macbook Pro keyboard when I play away from home. And I can still get decent times. 27.49 seconds is my best on it, which is only one second behind my real record.
I think it all comes down to comfort, if you have to take breaks constantly using your current keyboard, then I would change it.
I agree with Polaris, it's really up to your comfort level.
I switched from a really gummy keyboard to a das mechanical keyboard.. and now I loveeeee the mechanical keyboard. I wouldn't be able to play on a mac keyboard.. their keys are so small. I have fat fingers.
I dont think the keyboard will make a big difference. As long it rekognizes your finger fast enough and with a minimum of a delay, it should be fine. I also have to agree with polaris and steff, its more about you being comfortable with it. I prefer big keyboards with big keys. I also like the press the keys all the way down, i dont really feel comfortable with in-built laptop keyboards, they seem to be smooth but i miss the buttons way to often and get hasty since there is no clear difference when you start and when you stop. I never tried mechanical ones, but i think id love them.
Especially the fast players.
I'm using the same keyboard Caffeine uses (Cooler Master QuickFire Rapid), it's the best for me
(It helped me to get 35 seconds at 40 lines).
Though I'm also interested in keyboards with Cherry MX Red mechanical switches, because they're easier to press (however, there are none of these in my stores, so I would hit Internet shops someday).
I use a shitty laptop keyboard
I like the red switches too...
I like my MacBook's keyboard a lot for gaming (though not the machine itself). Similarly, if I have to use a USB keyboard, it'll always be http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB110LL bad boy. You can find it for way less than $50.
Please note for future - there is a search option on the top right corner of the forums page. Use that before posting a new thread, so we don't have duplicates.
I use a soft das keyboard.
shizi uses the blue
I've got that same keyboard, brown switches too! It's a dream to type on (\._./)
I use a $10 Logitech K120.
Y'know, I've noticed whenever I'm looking at keyboards at a store, whether it be mechanical or a laptop, I'm testing it out thinking, "Will this be good for Tetris?" And then I thought how strange it was that a few years ago when I bought my K120, my keyboard importance list was:
1. good price
2. good for typing
Now after I started playing Tetris, the list that goes through my head when I'm testing these out is:
1. play Tetris faster?
2. less Tetris misdrops?
3. fingers still comfortable after many tspins?
4. good for typing
5. good price
My friends know me as a pretty rationale guy, so now that I'm almost willing to pay an extra $100 for a mechanical keyboard or a better keyboard layout on a laptop just because of Tetris is a bit crazy for me. lol
What snapped me out of it was when I read that Hebo uses a $10 generic keyboard, too. And it got me thinking . . say, if I wore $200 Lebron James shoes and played basketball against Lebron James wearing $2 Old Navy Flip Flops, Lebron's still going to destroy me. At the end of the day, spending time on skill is way more important than spending money on the tool. (Although, gotta wonder if Hebo DID have a mechanical keyboard . . .)
Ducky Shine III Cherry MX Red:
nah i use mx browns too
das keyboard is the best keyboard iv ever used
I got a WASD browns
A few of mine:
Filco Majestouch (1) Tenkeyless with browns
ABS M1 (with leafless simplified Alps) -- my favorite to type on, but keyboard isn't NKRO.
Poker on IBM Model M (also Model M2 peaking in the corner lol)
A half year, my E key stopped working on my notebook. Thank god there are programs like Sharpkeys or AutoHotKey. Nonetheless, I bought an external keyboard. Since this is a Tetris forum, I will just describe its effect on Tetris.
Cherry MX Board 3.0 (mechanical keyboard, red switches)
<br>A big disappointment! Firstly, the stroke distance is too long for me. I prefer flat keys. Moreover, it forces me too use slower autorepeat delay settings than usual (I use DAS = 5 in NullpoMino). I will even encounter unintended autorepeats on the highest tuning of Tetris Friends and Tetris Battle. I think it is because the keypress is registered/unregistered when the key is pressed halfway down. Stiffer springs (black or blue switches) might reduce that effect.
I also tried out O-rings because the keyboard was too loud for me. The sound will become more low-pitched but it has no influence on the stroke distance. I also think the keys won't rebound as much as they usually do when hitting the bottom.
Rapoo E9070 (ultraflat wireless keyboard)
<br>The keys behave like how I would imagine a keyboard designed for Tetris. The only problem - and that is a very big problem - is that it is wireless! Your keypresses aren't registered immediately (it feels like your screen is some time behind your real input; it has no real influence on DAS though). The more busy your computer, the more severe the input lag. I was able to reduce the lag to a acceptable level in NullpoMino (turned Java process to 1st processor only, turned all other processes to avoid 1st processor; still I feel like it costs me 0.5 to 1 seconds in sprint). On the other hand, the lag is immense in Cultris 2. So my conclusion: Wireless keyboards are a no go for multiplayer Tetris.
tl;dr: I cannot recommend mechanical keyboards for the purpose of Tetris. Instead I can recommend corded flat keyboards.
Problem is: corded flat keyboards are very rare. Can somebody recommend me one? Or do you know where you can order hebo-MAI's keyboard outside of Japan?
Hebo's keyboard is Buffalo's BSKBU03 (you might know that already; I don't know how to order it)
Kero's keyboard is TK-FCP004, it's wired and very flat. You can buy it for around 50$. I hadn't tried either one.
To be fair Blink and MicroBlizz use mechanical keyboards and they are not that far away from hebo and kero. I just think mechanical keyboards are not that well suited for us mediocre players who cannot press 3 keys at the same time with lightning speed.
Well the red switches are extremely sensitive, they take quite a while to get used too. Especially on cultris which seems to register the shortest of keypresses it was pure torment. After about half a year practising and a good wrist support (I just use a rolled up sock, but it helps a lot!) I'm finally used to it. I can play faster das settings then before (like 5/5 on tf which used to be all over the place on my old keyboards), and learned to type very quietly But in the end I dont really think it was worth the effort and frustration. Maybe other switches are better...
One keyboard I really don't recommend is the cherry stream xt. It has flat laptop style keys and a cord, but registers very slowly (almost felt like a wireless keyboard to me). I have one up for sale if anyones interested though <.<
I'm not very up to date on the currents of keyboards, but when I was, people claimed that the fastest typers used chiclet style scissor switch keyboards. It's important though that you don't just get a keyboard with flat keys, but one with scissor switches (like a laptop would have).
One of the problems that rubber dome style keyboards, that mechanical keyboards fix, is the actuation point. With mechanical keyboards after you pass the actuation point (usually after the tactile bump or click) the switch is on. This means that from then on, all the way to the bottom out, it's being pressed. If you're holding it down, and lift up a tiny bit, it's still being pressed until you lift it back up past that actuation point.
Rubber domes on the other hand (and a few other types of switches) don't do this. The actuation point is ONLY when you bottom out. If you're not pressing the key completely down, it will not be pressed. This means when you have the key pressed past the tactile bump, the switch can still be off (usually the case in crap keyboards, and old keyboards). This is what lead me to hate them.
Idea: I've had this idea for a while, after seeing a post on someone making http://mykeyboard.co.uk/microswitch/ (similar to the buttons in a mouse). It would be very interesting to see a keyboard/gamepad/thing made from microswitches to play tetris. These would easily be the fastest switches if the device is built right.
I MD'd alot when I first tried playing but I wanted to try a mech for awhile. Perhaps I could try O-rings to lessen the distance. Regardless I just got my 3rd sub-30 with it.
Hey, I've been looking to buy a mechanical keyboard and did quite some research and thought it might be a good place to ask this here.
After some research I conclude I either want blue,brown or red mx switches.
I honestly think Blue's seem very good for tetris due their clicky feel, yet they seem to have a high reset point so for say tapping 3-4 times a second not that good.
Browns are said to be a safe middle road and you can't go wrong, but I honestly am not looking for not going wrong too bad but for going right, and brown's seem to be responsive aswell but not as responsive.
Reds are really twisting my mind, since they seem to be the fastest types of switches to tap with but have no responive feel which I think is quite important.
I currently have a keyboard with rubber dome and this is going to be my first mechanical keyboard.
You might want to check out this thread:
I've used blacks and reds, and while reds feel more sensitive/quicker to press I find myself misdropping less with black switches while pretty much keeping the same TPM speed.
I use reds right now, but I'll probably switch with my next keyboard. Reds work great in theory, but for tetris, browns might be the best, imo. You know for sure when you actuated the key so you can properly blame it on the lag or not pressing well enough.
I would not recommend blues to a tetris player because they are loud as heck.
I've tried blacks and reds. I prefer red. They have a great feel to them when playing fast.
http://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=leopold,compact&pid=fc660mcnb. Shes is a beauty. With brown switches, I think.
Has anyone tried Razer green and orange switches for Tetris? They look interesting...
i've been using the one on my laptop for 4 years. it's been with me from when i have 50+s 40L record to 27.75s.
and the right arrow key is never popping up since yesterday.
Just move to a different spot on the keyboard.
My arrow keys met a similar fate, so I moved to the o k l ; buttons.
I'm considering going for brown switches for trying to improve my typing and Tetris speeds. Would it be a good choice? Thinking of getting a CM-Storm Quick Fire Ultimate (my local retailer sells them in white backlight) and I'll probably be keeping my settings for Nullpomino
For those interested: Key configuration as it is now:
up: Hard Drop
down: Soft Drop
Left/Right: Left/Right movement
Z/X: CCW/CW Rotation
Left Shift: Hold
D : 180 flip (for those Tetris games which support)
If I don't use my keyboard, I switch to my Logitech F710.
Hat switches are for movement. I can't use Axis movement at all.
Buttons 0,1 are rotation
Shoulders are hold
and Button 2 is 180 flip for those Tetris games which support 180 rotation
I keep to a common configuration all round due to the fact that I use the same keys for Tetris as I do for PuyoVS.
Im using a combination of brown and blue switches at the moment. I found browns to be much better than blues for directional movements, but I am going to change to reds for directional movements soon and see how they compare
beside the keyboard, i think frame rate makes more sense...
"for fast gameplay, 60 is far too few, neither is 120... the das is too inaccurate"
(from some monsters using ~50ms das)
before reaching dat speed, keyboard's doesn't seem to be so important imo.
(3000fps game engine wip (i've played xael's 40l, nice but lack of multi-rotation-system support))
Red/black is usually preferred because they are linear, but I've heard some raving reviews over brown/blue. Remember to follow your dreams.
Reds are just crazy for tetris (if you're fast). The first time I used reds I went from 39-36 seconds sprint. If you like typing though, do NOT get these as you will typo every other word because the key actuation point is so low, I cannot remember if these are loud or not.
Browns are my favourite. Quite a bit harder to play tetris (literally) after using reds but you can type and after a few sessions you get back into the swing of things, these are also quite and you probably won't wake a neighbor or sleeping parent.
Blues are a tiny bit harder (5 grams I believe) than the browns so you tend not to notice, but they are MUCH louder (I woke my dad up many times in the night whilst training back in the day).
All in all I recommend the reds for Tetris, purely because my 26 sprint record is with them and I can remember just how amazingly fast they are to use.
These are the only colors I've used so far, I hope this gives people a general idea.
Okay, so my keyboard arrived today. I set the polling rate to 1ms and put the rollover rate to nkro. I found a significant difference playing with the QuickFire Ultimate. Score may not be at the best, but this is the fastest marathon time I've done with Nullpomino. I also felt a significant difference since shifting over to this keyboard.
Man, it also feels brilliant to type on this keyboard. The blue switch still makes it feel satisfying as ever. I guess once you go mechanical you never go back?
So I have a choice of 2 keyboards. A laptop keyboard and a really cheap rubber dome. Which should I use for Tetris?
The keyboard on my bigger laptop isn't actually that bad, in fact ive sub27d once with it. However, the keyboard on my chromebook is the worst I've ever used! Depends on the quality of your rubber dome and your laptop. When I first started playing, I had a terrible wireless rubber dome, and Id take my laptop keyboard over that any day.
Anyone have experience with Topre switches? How would you describe their feel?
I'm looking at:
I talked a bunch on the shoutbox, but I'll summarize here:
Comfortable, accurate tactile feedback. Confident typing.
Topre switches actually have a (good quality) rubber dome with a spring beneath it, so the "buckling" feeling of a regular rubber dome keyboard is similar to how the tactile feedback feels -- but Topre uses capacative keyswitches so that the point of activation is at the point where the rubber buckles, not where the bottom of the dome touches the bottom of the surface below it. The spring itself is also not part of actuation, as in the model m ("clicky") keyboard -- it's just there to soften the landing. I find it makes the keypress feel heavier than, say, Cherry browns, but it's actually equal or lighter on the pinky and ring finger columns.
Topre is my absolute favorite for typing, but I still tend to pull out my Filco for Tetris. I still could heartily recommend Topre as a brand to just about anybody, and I guess you'd just have to try it to see if you like it better or worse than Cherry for games.
Okay it's done it's done:
Novatouch TKL with Topre switches.

Vortex Doubleshot PBT Keycaps
Overall about $250 and 4 hours of labor - so let me show it off!
I love how it feels, my new favorite keyboard. I've been using Cherry MX for the past 5 years and I really enjoy typing and gaming on these, especially with how quiet they are.
Toshiba Satellite L50.
Upgraded from my old corsair k60 with red switches to this ducky shine 3 with black switches. Really liking it so far! The keycaps seem to have some kind of coating on them which feels a lot nicer than the glossy plastic they used on my old corsair. Also digging the black switches. After 3 years of using red switches they still felt a little too light for my taste: they're good for gaming, but require a lot of restraint while typing, especially if you don't like bottoming out. The black switches feel more solid and are more comfortable to type on. The keyboard also has adjustable DAS and repeat rate on the F keys which works really well in cultris since you can set your DAS somewhere between 4.5 and 5, but it does make the pieces stutter a little in TF when you softdrop. Would definitely recommend: it's relatively cheap for a mechanical keyboard but feels very high quality (it also comes with an extra, more understated spacebar.)
$9.99 amazonbasics keyboard
i plan to get this for a nice fit on the right hand
Probably an Arcacade Joystick will do too.
Something like this?: http://shop.xgaming.com/collections/arcade-joysticks
I use the Microsoft wired keyboard 600.
Pros: 1. Durability of the keys as they last longer than 3 years
2. Nice feel and not too straining on the hands.
Cons: 1. Sometimes it's hard to find the correct hand position because of the slight downward slant in the keys.
2. It isn't mechanical and can sometimes be quite loud when playing tetris or typing swiftly.
Leopold FC 660M, Cherry Brown
I would recommend you CORSAIR, I like every part of it. I have this keyboard only cherry MX red form, it's a https://www.cuou.net/best-budget-gaming-keyboard.html suitable for typing and gaming.
This is my first mechanical keyboard, and I think it will be a bright future between me and the pirates. The keys are bright because the red LEDs are accompanied by a red background, the keys are fast, and the sound is great. They are not as loud as I thought, and this is also an advantage. I can't say the life of the key, but according to the cherry, they have 80 million buttons.
