    The most important thing about a keyboard is strength.

    As you can see in this example, this keyboard was not strong enough.

    In this next example, you can see an older keyboard exhibiting sufficient strength.

    So that's the most important thing.



    Oh important features in a GAMING keyboard.

    Comfort (for lengthy gaming sessions), Backlit keys (just helps when playing in the dark!), Multimedia keys (often lacking), USB port(s) and macro keys (use them from time to time!). Bonus points for small screen like my current old Logitech G15!

    Sensitivity and negative pressure ( feedback) are important. I like to know i have pressed a key when I press it, sometimes heavy, sometimes light but either way I want it to register.

    I like the click you get from a mech keyboard...that responsiveness is the most important thing the keyboard can do to help immerse you in the game.

    Backlit, responsive long lasting mechanical keys, firmware upgradeable. Quality cant be beat either.

    I look at comfort, durability/build quality and responsiveness.

    Back lighting is also a plus

    LEDs. My competitors need to know my 1337ness and the only way they will see it is if my 133tness blinds them.
