i know there is no keyboard that is designed for gaming for $10 .. am looking for the best keyboard thet i can get it to use it for long time hardcore gaming for $10 or less :p from newegg

i don't know what keyboard keys type should i get (high keys or slim keys or medium)

just post a link .. thanx
 
The problem with not getting something that has Free Shipping is that they will jack the price up.Something that would normally be $5 will add another $7 for shipping and now you've just paid $12 for a $5 keyboard.Also it puts you over your budget of $10.

That keyboard looks nice.

My $10 keyboard I've owned for about 3 months and while it's very cheap feeling it plays fine.My only dislike about it is the way it feels when I type fast.If your paying $10 for a keyboard you can't really be picky about the features and what not although the hotkey's are a nice bonus.

keyboards are really a thing of person preference, pick one that you find comfortable, if its not its going to be killing you after a longer session. What type of key you get really depends on you, im not fond of the short keys on laptop keyboards nor the silly scissor mechanism they have to use so i always stick with more conventional style keyboards but i do know people who actually like the short keys for regular typing.

Go to best buy or staples or walmart, they usually have keyboards layed out that you can try. I certainly wouldnt get a $10 keyboard online it will probably have $9.95 shipping on it(quick check, newegg has 2 keyboard products under 10 with freeshipping and only 14 total under 25 with free shipping out of 214 products). For something that cheap try it out and pick it up in a real store.

Keyboards an Mice are really subjective items. What may be good for one person is trash to another. I never could use an Intel ergonomic, curvy keyboard. Some people have the desire to use a $150.00 mouse. I like my Logitech $30.00 wireless.
BTW, I'm using an AST standard keyboard, no WIN symbol or anything like that. This sucker is more than 20 yrs old and works just fine.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I bought the cheap keyboard at walmart. I drink while playing video games and spills are a huge problem. When I get home I'll tell you what brand I have. It's an amazing keyboard. It has survived around 5 soda/beer spills so far. I've had previous keyboards die after just one.

I do like those curved keyboards for typing. I had one in college and it was great. For gaming however they suck horribly. The keys are in the wrong spots and in a hurry you'll press the wrong one.

Whats wrong with Chocolate keys? The Chocolate keyboard is the one that's $13.
The Rosewill one I linked is for $10 and it's the only one offered by newegg that's for $10.Every other keyboard doesn't have free shipping and add's another $6.

The story had a point. If you are rough on your keyboards, don't get an expensive one. What I also should have said is that at $10, you can't really get a good one either. If you were asking for the best keyboard for $75 thats different. But at $10 they are really more or less all the same.

you can get one on craglist for free, take on from the library or school, electronics recycling firm. Many places to get keyboards for less than 1 dollar
