Best gaming keyboard under 5000


If you are a person who is searching for the best gaming keyboard under 5000, we consider you a hard-core gamer or someone who wants to be a full-time gamer. When it comes to gaming keyboards, there are many options in this price range. However, the critical issue is, ‘which one to choose and what will be right for your gaming style.’ All the players prefer top-of-the-line keyboards; and if you are one of them, you have come to the right place. In today’s blog, we will show you the top-rated keyboards of all kinds like mechanical, wireless and tenkeyless. After having done hectic research in our uptech21 laboratory by our dedicated tech team, we are here to present you with the selected best gaming keyboards under 5000.

Top 3 Considerations for Choosing a Gaming Keyboard.

1. Size of the Keyboard 

Keyboards often come in full-sized and Tenkeyless varieties. You’ll need a full-sized keyboard if you want a number pad on it. The Tenkeyless keyboard, on the other hand, is a compact-sized keyboard that fits a small desk because of the absence of its number pad. However, it enables you to keep your mouse closer at hand. After all, choosing a gaming keyboard entirely depends on your preference. 

2. Key Technology  

When it comes to gaming keyboards, you should always go with a mechanical rather than a membrane one because it is more durable and works better. 

3. Build Quality 

We all know that build quality is one of the most important factors when it comes to buying a gaming keyboard. It would be worth keeping in mind that gaming keyboards are mainly made of plastics.  However, most gaming keyboards at this price range are in the top-notch category in terms of their build quality regardless of which material they are made of.

Key Features

  • Comes with Mechanical 50 million lifespan keystroke
  • 5 programmable macro keys, full keys anti-ghosting

The gaming keyboard that has been selected by the uptech21 research team as the best gaming keyboard under 5000 rupees is the Redragon K580 VATA. Considering its overall quality and features, this mechanical gaming keyboard deserves to be ranked first amongst our top-selected gaming keyboards.

It is a mechanical keyboard that can withstand 50 million keystrokes of life (according to what the manufacturer claims).

It is a spill-resistant gaming keyboard, which means that you don’t have to get tense if some liquid gets spilled on it accidentally. It’s also a dust-proof keyboard that you can use in any environment.

It is a very well-built and sturdy keyboard, with 1.2 kg of body weight. It is also very attractive with its matte-finish look. The upper side of this keyboard is made of metal, while the lower side is made of good quality plastic. Retractable stands are provided for the height adjustment.

The USB connector is gold-plated for longevity. The USB cable is of good quality and comes with an EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) shield connector to protect it from unwanted electromagnetic wave interference.

The keycaps are made with double-shot injection moulding technology, and as a result of this, the characters on the keycaps are fade-free.

Only a small actuation force is required to register a keystroke. It means that the amount of distance that the keys need to go down to register keystrokes is very small. In layman’s language, it is easily understandable that even a slight push of a key registers a keystroke. It ultimately gives a sense that better gaming and typing activities can be executed due to the requirement of lower energy and time.

The G1 to G5 keys, which are located on the upper top portion of the keyboard are the 5 macro keys. These programmable macro keys can save lots of time for gamers by simply pre-recording programmes. Here, the good thing is that you don’t have to install any software for the execution of these pre-programmable functions. The Windows key lock function ensures that gamers have hassle-free and zero-distraction gaming sessions.

. Logitech G413 TKL SE

The next gaming keyboard that occupies the 4th rank in our selected list of uptech21 is the Logitech G413 TKL SE. This is yet again one of the most widely used and best gaming keyboard under 5000.

This Logitech G413 SE comes in two models: the G413 TKL SE and the G413 SE. Basically, the only difference between these two models is that the G413 SE is a full-sized keyboard (with numpad and 434 mm in length), while the G413 TKL SE is a compact-sized (without numpad and 355 mm in length) ten-keyless (TKL) keyboard. Both the keyboards have the same width of 363 mm. The G413 TKL SE is the one about which we are going to talk about now.

While testing, we noticed that the G413 TKL SE has an extremely good build quality, with a black-brushed aluminium top case. Because of this, flexing is limited while its durability is increased tremendously. It is sleek, sturdy, and compact with a wider amount of space occupancy.

It is a wired mechanical gaming keyboard with a lot of features. Its USB cable is provided with an EMI protector to avoid unwanted electromagnetic wave interference.

[expand title=”Read More ▼ “]

Performance and Features

This keyboard’s keycaps are made with one of the most durable plastic materials, which is called PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate). This PBT is known for its rigidity, chemical-resistance, and wear and tear resistance. Hence, it is the most outstanding feature of this gaming keyboard. Most of the keyboard manufacturers use ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadience Styrene) plastic material, which is softer and cheaper compared to PBT plastic. Therefore, it will not be wrong to say that this comes with an excellent quality build.

Looking further, the G413 TKL SE is ergonomically designed keeping in mind the nature of keyboarding friendliness. Its mechanical switches are quieter, highly tactile, and give perfect performance without any miss-striking of keys.

After having done a critical physical test on the N-key rollover of this keyboard by our dedicated team, it was actually found to have 10-key rollover performance rather than the 6-key rollover as the company claims. So, this is an excellent feature that allows simultaneous multiple-key presses for better gaming performance.

This keyboard is compatible with almost all versions of Windows and Mac OS.

This G413 TKL SE gaming keyboard is illuminated with white light. It is simply amazing and enhances the gamers’ focus on their games without any distractions from the multi-coloured flickering lights.

Overall, this is a great mechanical gaming keyboard, which you can use hand-on without any doubt. You can still go down further to look for the best options from our list.

However, if you want to stick with this G413 TKL SE, you don’t have to look any further because it is one of the most highly demanded gaming keyboards. [/expand]

It is a very well-established company that has been in the market for years. One very good thing about this gaming keyboard is its easy and ready availability both in the local markets as well as through online platforms. It has a big share in the Indian market. If not the best, it is one of the best gaming keyboards under 5000 rupees.

The company provides high-quality keyboards that gamers love, and the K55 appears to follow in Corsair’s footsteps.

The K55 is a membrane keyboard equipped with rubber dome switches and all the features of a gaming keyboard. This keyboard gives a feeling similar to that of the majority of membrane keyboards currently available in the market when typing. This being a membrane keyboard, you should not expect the key strokes to have tactile feedback, but it is rather mushy.

Despite being primarily manufactured with plastic materials, this keyboard has excellent build quality. However, it has a glossy-finish at the top that forms fingerprint smudges, which is a little annoying (they should have given a matte-finish touch).

It is spill-resistant with IP42-rated protection guards; therefore, you don’t have to worry about some amount of liquid being spilled.

Before I take you deeper, let me interrupt to tell you that this keyboard will never let you down since it is one of the most widely used gaming keyboards and is trusted by many gamers.

The positive thing about this Corsair K55 Pro keyboard is that it handles media rather simply. Thanks to the dedicated media keys in the upper right corner.

In addition to that, there are six macro keys on the left side of the keyboard that enable you to set your preferences. This makes it easier to play games.

[expand title=”Read More ▼ “]

Performance and Features

The keycaps are made of very good plastic materials and strategically placed to give a feeling of sturdiness when pressed.

Additionally, it has a removable rubberized wrist rest that does a nice job of providing perfect support to your wrists.

Moving on to the RGB lighting, this keyboard also boasts a three-zone illumination system.

You can quickly customise this RGB lighting using the keyboard itself or compatible software. This software, which is also known as iCUE (IBM Certified Used Equipment), allows a lot of adjustments, including the creation of macro keys.

In conclusion, the Corsair K55 is an ideal gaming keyboard for people looking for a membrane gaming keyboard with appealing features like additional programmable function buttons, zonal RGB illumination, and specific media controls.

You may not get along well with this keyboard if you are already addicted to using mechanical keyboards, but if you’re looking to start playing video games; this one might be an excellent option.

You can definitely go for this best gaming keyboard without any hesitation because it will never disappoint you.

However, you can still sail on to the next one to have a look as to which will be the right choice for you. [/expand]

The following keyboard that comes next in our ranking list is a mechanical gaming keyboard, which is called the Gamdias Hermes E3. This could be considered as one of the most reliable gaming keyboards out there.

The Gamdias Hermes E3 follows the 60 percent form factor (size of the keyboard and key layout), which essentially implies that it lacks distinct media controls and numeric buttons.

However, you do gain some additional work space as well as a pure tactile experience with every key’s click.

The Gamdias Hermes E3 was intentionally created with mobility in mind, and this can be seen both in its design and construction.

Gamdias did an excellent job by adding a USB Type-C connector, which makes it simpler for you to unplug the keyboard in case you need to clean it or move it.

Additionally, it is useful in case the cable malfunctions, as you can just buy a new one and continue with your workflow.

This keyboard by Gamdias is entirely made of superior quality plastic materials with an incredibly strong look.

In search of the best gaming keyboard under 5000, you may look elsewhere other than uptech21, but we assure you that the list of gaming keyboards that we have compiled is highly trustworthy in nature pertaining to the kind of test that we did upon these keyboards. The keycaps are properly positioned on the switches and are well-built as well.

[expand title=”Read More ▼ “]

Performance and Features

Let’s briefly discuss the key switches while we let you know more elaborately about the keys.

The 50 million click-rated Ortemo Blue Switches (as per the claim by the manufacturer, real testing videos are coming soon from the uptech21 lab) are used in the Hermes E3. These switches are regarded as good and affordable alternatives to the Cherry MX Blue since they are renowned for providing a satisfying typing experience with tactile feedback.

The Gamdias Hermes E3 comes with the Windows key lock facility that enables gamers to go on with their hectic games without any distractions. Anti-ghosting keys enhance a flawless gaming environment.

Choosing a suitable gaming keyboard within a given price tag is not an easy task since all keyboards have pros and cons, but the uptech21 research team has made this uphill task easier for you. Furthermore, when it comes to the RGB effects, the Gamdias Hermes E3 has 19 RGB presets that you can select in this keyboard.

In all honesty, finding this many RGB presets at this price is really uncommon. We understand that you want to know if the programme allows for customization of these RGB lights. Unfortunately, the Hermes E3 does not have any software support at all, so your only option is to pick from the presets.

All things considered, the Gamdias Hermes E3 is a decent option for individuals looking for a small, stylish, and, most importantly, mechanical keyboard for their regular gaming demands. Therefore, it will not be wrong to recommend this gaming keyboard.

Yes, using numerous function keys and adhering to preset lighting is a little annoying, but if you can manage with that, this could be one of your top selections. If you intend to continue to look for other options, you may move on to our next pick from the compiled list. [/expand]
