Corsair K55 Pro: (Cheap but good gaming keyboards)
Another great keyboard, but this time it’s by Corsair. Corsair is an American computer company, specializing in hardware and is one of the biggest manufacturers of such products.

This is their K55 RGB PRO. One of these keyboards was used by one of the GameRadar+ hardware team members. It has everything a gaming keyboard needs. RGB which is well light, good built-quality. The RGB is a five-zone dynamic backlight and powers the gameplay through six dedicated macro keys.
A disadvantage it has compared to Ducky One 2 mini is that the one 2 mini has mechanical switches. While the K55 Pro has rubber, which makes it less like a type-writer. And if you are some like me then you love the clicky sound of a type-writer and want your keyboard to have the same.
