So, the leaders from the wired devices of luxury class are Corsair K100 RGB and SteelSeries Apex Pro. The last one was offered by the author as an alternative. The K100 RGB has a quick response, backlight, USB connector, and wrist rest.

The SteelSeries Apex Pro has almost all the same features as the more expensive version (except for the optical switches and dedicated macro keys). At the same time, you can switch to TenKeyLess with this keyboard.

Of the wireless expensive models, the top two are the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro and the Logitech G915 Lightspeed. The first model has no through USB transmission, no dedicated macro keys. Not happy about the runtime - only about 25 hours. Although otherwise all is good: there is a wrist rest, special multimedia controls, you can connect Razer Hyperspeed.

The Logitech G915 Lightspeed backlight is not as bright, so this keyboard can also be used for work. It also has macro keys, and the operating time is up to 30 hours. But there is no wrist rest.

Of the budget wired ones, the best to spend, according to the expert, on the Redragon K552 RGB KUMARA or on the HyperX Alloy Core RGB. The first one will please you with its compactness, RGB backlight, mechanical switches and moisture protection. But there is no special stand provided.

HyperX Alloy Core RGB for functionality is about the same as the previous model. There are also keys for multimedia control, brightness adjustment, etc. In addition, there is an option to purchase Alloy Core RGB version with a stand.

Among inexpensive wireless devices stand out Corsair K63 Wireless and Logitech G613 Wireless. The first one has quite quiet keys with blue backlight. There are special keys for additional functions. You can connect multiple devices to the keyboard via Bluetooth, and without backlight it can work up to 75 hours. With maximum brightness - up to 25 hours. Also included is a removable stand.

Logitech G613 Wireless has an affordable price and a lot of features. At the same time it has no backlight at all.

The highest quality full-size keyboard is the Roccat Vulcan 121 AIMO. This wired device is good by all means, except for the absence of full macro keys and USB-adapter. From another disadvantages the author names the limited functions of special keys, as well as uncomfortable wrist rest.

The smallest and most expensive product is the Razer Huntsman Mini. This keyboard uses the Synapse app to customize it. At the same time, you'll need to spend money on the stand as well. But otherwise, both appearance and functionality are great.
