Scoring System - Keyboards

The Keyboard Scoring system we use follows seven different aspects of the keyboard rated on a score of X/10.

These seven aspects are...

Build and Design

How well the keyboard is built and how it looks.


What keyboard layout does it have? Are the keys in logical places, or do they cause more annoyance?


Does the keyboard have RGB? Does it not have any backlighting?


How well are the keycaps? Are they good quality, or are the poorly designed? Are the switches of good quality as well? Are they optical or standard switches?

Typing Experience

How does the keyboard feel for a typist? Is it loud, smooth, heavy, rough, etc?

Gaming Experience

How well is the keyboard for gaming? Does it cause issues with specific shortcuts? Does key wobble affect finger positioning? etc.


Is the software easy to use? Does it make sense? Does it require learning, or can you jump right into it?


At the end of each post will be a verdict section that will include the total points from all aspects listed above.

  • Scores of 0-30 out of 70 would fall under the Not Recommended category.
  • Scores of 31-50 out of 70 would fall under the It's Okay category.
  • Scores of 51-60 out of 70 would fall under the Recommended category.
  • Scores of 61-70 out of 70 would fall under the Highly Recommended category.

Remember that all of our reviews are the personal opinions of the reviewer. What may work out for them may not work out for you.
