    Arrow Why do gamers buy expensive keyboards?

    I can tell you why I used to buy expensive keyboards. For me, it was macro keys- I typically had a keyboard with from 1218 macro keys on the left, which I had set up so I could trigger any ability on any of my WoW characters using just my left hand. Honestly, without that, I would not have been as good a player.

    Other than that, some of the higher-end mechanical keyboards have a nice feel. Once you get used to one, its hard to go back to a $10 Dell keyboard. They also tend to have very high durability, and other friendly to have features like RGB backlighting and even custom keys.

    I like the rgb, I reckon it justifies the $200 or whatever keyboard

    For the slick design and mecha caps. I love the clicky sound they make <3.<3
    There are some good brands and some awful brands in the gaming keyboard scene.
    Just stay away from razer as far as possible UwU

    I personally always skimp out on expensive gaming stuff but buying quality keyboards and mice genuinely does make a difference in not just performance but comfort. Also more expensive is usually more reliable so they'll break less often. Lots of people also like customizing their mechanical keyboards.

    Most people probably do it for the design and get the whole pro gamer feel

    I use a good quality microsoft set, but it's honestly not that good with combos. It's great for typing, but when playing a game where I have to quickly do a 7-click combo in less than 2 seconds, some of my clicks don't register. I imagine a gaming keyboard would not do that, as well as faster keystroke travelling times.
    I do not use any type of messenger outside of MPGH.
