Mechanical keys make for a nice gaming keyboard

Not all keyboards are up to the rigors of gaming. If you have ever tried to play a FPS or other game with a junk keyboard that shipped with a cheap PC you have seen more ghosting than most haunted houses and know exactly what I mean. When it comes to gaming keyboards, not all of them are created equal either. Many gamers lust after a gaming keyboard with mechanical keys more than one packed with macros and other features many won't use.


A company called Zowie Gear has unveiled a new gaming keyboard with mechanical keys called the Celeritas. The company says that the keyboard is the perfect weapon for competition where response time and the ability to move freely are essential. The Celeritas is designed specifically for competitive gamers. The keyboard has 18K gold plated brown mechanical switched for increased durability and better feel.

The key caps are nylon, the keyboard has a simple black design, and the keys are not backlit like many gaming keyboards. The keyboard also has a Zowie RTR technology built-in that lets the user define a repeat response of a key press for 1x to 8x when connected via a PS/2 connector. The response time of the keyboard is 0.2 seconds, which is the fastest of any mechanical keyboard on the market and it has anti-ghosting tech. The keyboard will ship in Europe this December for 119,90 euros.
