Corsair K100 Mechanical Keyboard: amzn.to/3s4oGc6
MSI Vigor GK20 Membrane Keyboard: amzn.to/3pyi5Fc
Elgato Stream Deck: amzn.to/37sJKB5
To find out which gaming keyboard is most worth your money, we put two of the hottest gaming peripherals up against one another: the $230 Corsair K100 and the $40 MSI Vigor GK20.
Looking for a new gaming keyboard? Want to know if their performance is worth the hefty price? Look no further, as we put the most high-end tech and peripherals up against the more budget-friendly options to see which device is most worth their price.
First we have the $230 Corsair K100, a optical mechanical gaming keyboard that utilizes Corsair's infrared optical switches, features an iCUE control wheel and full on-board RGB coverage with a 44 zone lighting edge, and delivers your inputs up to 4x faster than other gaming keyboards.
Secondly we have an entry-level Vigor GK20, a $40 membrane keyboard that's still trying hard to earn it's place at your battlestation with ergonomic keycaps, basic RGB effects, multimedia hotkeys, and a water repellent and an inbuilt drainage system to prevent any damage from spilt gamer fuel.
Two very different keyboards with very different prices, but which is most worth their asking price?

Corsair keyboard is good, my oldest one still alive up to now 6 years. My new one is K100 opx, it really fast, help me do alot more combo in Justic Online Rtx, everything is faster in game. For word processing, feel so much better, faster typing than blue/red/speed silver switch I been use. I never go back those old switch, Opx is king for now. Only recommendation this keyboard to fast fingers/mind ppl. if you so slow in typing and not in fast action game, opx isnt for you, go for other switch.

This video convinced me to buy the MSI keyboard off of Amazon instead of continuing to deal with a broken shift key. It is now down to $30.

While i never used Corsair keyboards (i have keyboard that i really enjoyed for many years), i always liked that clicking noise while typing. Whenever i use keyboards that don't give that sounds, I always feel something missing.

You can get a great mechanical keyboard well under 100 or build your own for great quality for a little bit more. This video was pointless.

You could probably build a pretty nice keyboard with the switches of your choice and nice key caps for less. I enjoy the extra mouse pad space after going TKL years ago.

Anyone buying the corsair is wasting their money. Their choice of course, but no one can claim its good value... and honestly isnt this rainbow lighting like your playing witn 'my little ponies' not just the lamest kiddie sh*t ever?

I have the MECH-KB RGB Mechanical Keyboard. It's only $50. The corsair is simply way overpriced.

I own the K100 biggest downside to it is you have to unplug and replug in the cable if your rgb gets rest witch is often but over all love it

Been using a logitech k300 for close to 11 years now and can't image why anyone would ever need a $230 "gaming" keyboard.

I felt exactly the same way until I tried one, purchased the k100 a week later. Typing on it is just so much more satisfying, the extra features and flexibility are a nice bonus.

Nah Corsair is a scam it is 99% flashy lights 1% hyper sensitive which is even more annoying and mostly placebo effect

What acutal features does a fucking keyboard need besides registering the given button presses?

I have the k100, it's worth it 100%. But I would never pay 230. I got it for 150 thanks to my friend at best buy

THERE WAS NO NEED IN THIS VIDEO, FOR 40 YOU CAN GET A CHERRY RED CLONE THAT WORKS JUST AS WELL AS A HIGH END CORSAIR, I JUST BINNED MY CORSAIR AFTER MULTIPLE SPILLS AND OTEHR THINGS, AND ITS LEGIT JUST AS GOOD ... *CAPS* cbf retyping

@Paul Mills well a k70 isnt a k100 with 4000hz polling and optical switches. So you can write 7.5 of those ms off and your 40 board probably fluctuates between 16 32 ms. I am not saying the K100 is good value. I am saying it has value... if you are an elite competitive gamer. For clarity I dont own a K100
Paul Mills

@Lee F my k70 hit a 8ms at the fastest i could press it which aas liek when you smash buttons on a controller as fast as you can , and my £40 clone was 16ms so far , so i mean, the price difference to performance , meh , you wouldnt even see it
Lee F

@Paul Mills Subjectively it works just as well as a high end in all areas... aside from latency. Almost everything in the 40 range will have a latency of 30+ ms whereas the K100 is under 1ms
