Esports News – There’s never been a better time to be a competitive gamer. You can join the club anytime you want. The gaming scene is vibrant, powerful and huge rewards await. It can truly inspire you in more ways than one. But newcomers have a lot to learn from the pros, especially when it comes to buying gaming equipment. You should know what matters and what doesn’t.
Considering that, this week’s episode of Tipify Gaming Equipment series shows two well-performing gaming keyboards perfect for beginners: Logitech G213 Prodigy and HyperX Alloy FPS RGB. Let’s compare both peripherals in terms of accuracy, durability, precision, and point each one’s notable features.
Logitech G213 Prodigy
The G213 Prodigy is focused on delivering the best features at a budget-friendly price tag: $85 USD. It carries the new Logitech G Mech-Dome keys, 4mm travel distance, 50g actuation force, and LIGHTSYNC technology. Apart from that, the Logitech G213 Prodigy runs with the Logitech Gaming Software which provides a lot of ways to customize your gaming experience. You can disable any button combination you want to activate “game mode” so you can perform well across different genres like first-person shooter Overwatch, real-time-strategy game Starcraft, and massive multiplayer online game Dota 2.
With all the aforementioned aspects available for you to use while gaming, it’s not surprising that the keyboard is quite bulky. Regardless, you can still find comfort in it, even if you’re gaming or just simply typing, because of the rubber-dome keys and the water-resistance technology (60 ml liquid rating) attached to it. It’s like tapping into a bubble wrap, each stroke is followed by a popping sensation as the dome compresses and the key strikes the backplate. It’s perfectly suitable for gamers who spent half of their day playing video games while eating.
HyperX Alloy FPS RGB
The new version of HyperX Alloy FPS RGB now supports NGenuity RGB lighting and Kailh Silver Speed, a modified and improved version of the well-known Cherry MX key switches. The 2016 version is already the bestselling keyboard in the market, but the updated version is even better as it bears other additional feature, including the 100% Anti-ghosting and N-Key rollover technology, “game mode” function, RGB LED software, and 40g actuation force. What’s astonishing is it’s only priced at $90 USD. You can now glide around the battlefield of first-person shooter titles like CSGO and MOBA games without exceeding your original budget for gaming peripherals.
Carrying the cutting-edge features of the keyboard is its compact design, solid steel frame, and high-quality metal body; the frame that lies beneath its keys uses a sturdy steel alloy that gives the entire device a sense of heft and value. As compared to the bulky body of Logitech G213 Prodigy, this keyboard has a huge emphasis on portability and reducing desktop space. But beyond that, it is evidently built for both speed and comfort.
