Amazon has a pretty good deal going on a nice mechanical gaming keyboard:

I've used the 8 4 2 6 style before, but that was on a game where diagonal movement was possible and so 7 9 1 and 3 were also used...

I would not waste 90 bucks on that keyboard. I would be much better off with a 10 dollar one instead of that thing. No arrow keys? WTF?!?

Why the **** would you want a keyboard without dedicated arrow keys?


because it's 2013 and if you are using the arrow keys you're doing it wrong.

It has arrow keys. Take a closer look at the numpad.

Every keyboard is a gaming keyboard unless it sucks ass... Also it's got backlit keys which means that your Cheetos encrusted fingers can find the WASD cluster in a dark room (if you needed the help).


This made me LOL.

You mustn't go to CE often, then. This is pretty much their main joke now, and it's gotten pretty old to me.

What exactly makes that a "gaming keyboard"?


Generally speaking, gaming keyboards allow more keys to be pressed at the same time. Cheap keyboards will allow 3 or 4 at once maximum, while gaming keyboards allow more than that for complex games that need it. Some of them also have macro buttons, but I find those pretty useless.

This is my mechanical keyboard...basic, but I love the feel and sound. Had it for a couple of years now.

I know a numpad has arrow keys on it but I meant dedicated ones that are to the left of the numpad,

It's not wasted, because I appreciate the difference between mechanical and cheap keyboards. It feels very different under your fingertips. Thanks for the attitude, though.
