Zowie Celeritas II

The first version of Celeritas was equipped with steady Cherry MX Brown keys. Version 2.0 uses a form of optical key switches, a relatively new type of mechanical switches that claim to be faster and more durable than older models. Working together with the keys are Celeritas’ impressive specs: high-quality iron spring, Red LED backlit keys, 100% N-Key Rollover, and Real-Time Response System—all of which represents the features a professional gamer always look for.
Fnatic Gear Rush Blue (UK)
The keyboard is under the product line of Fnatic Gear, a company established by esports organization Fnatic. They’ve released an entire gaming equipment for fans with mice, headsets, and mousepads. But the more popular product in the market today is their Fnatic Gear Rush Blue gaming keyboard, a 104-key mechanical typing equipment that hits all the basic notes accurately using Cherry MX Red switches and onboard memory. It is, of course, perfect for game genres played by Fnatic players such as League of Legends, Dota 2, and CSGO.
The sound, or lack thereof, is the greatest feature of Fnatic Gear Rush Blue. If you always play games, day and night, then the idea of a mechanical gaming keyboard that doesn’t make any noise is the perfect option for you—more specifically, the Rush Silent typing experience. Many professionals claim that it’s like “tapping against a soft, soundless void”. Partnered silent gaming with a little glow from the LED lighting technology of the keyboard and you’re good to go!
