Hi folks, I am not a gamer but I've been looking into gaming keyboards and wondered if you have feedback. I'm an IT support person but hardware is not my forte. One of the managers I support is a super fast paced, multitasking person who works on another plane or something, and she has advanced keyboard needs, haha. She's worn out several keyboards in the time I've been supporting her (9 years) and now she's dealing with keyboard lag. She's currently using whatever generic wireless keyboard I was buying a year ago, probably some $25 Logitech model. I did confirm with her that when she uses her laptop's keyboard it works fine, so between that and my long experience supporting her and her keyboards, I ruled out any issue with the computer itself and am focusing on the keyboard.
So- I've learned a lot just by reading online and what I've come down to is I need to get her back on a wired keyboard, and the mechanical keyboards that gamers use would probably be better for her since she types extremely fast and goes back and forth from a lot of different tasks (you frequently see her with 8-10 windows open at once). (There are mechanical keyboards that are not marketed as gaming keyboards, but most of them are marketed as gaming keyboards).
So I wonder if anyone can chime in on their favorite keyboard for gaming, or if the concept of gaming keyboards or the superiority of mechanical keyboards is just hype. I've gotten approval before to buy her different/more advanced hardware than others so I am not super worried about the budget although it's probably better if it's under a couple hundred bucks? I'm open to learning about whatever though.
