In the technology market they are presented increasingly innovative and “comfortable” products which in some ways improve the actions we carry out every day. From smartphones, tablets, true wireless headphones, up to keyboards, a quality product can make the difference in the workplace or videogame and in this regard it seems that some peripherals, made specifically for gaming, are chosen by professionals to work.
In this historical period we are going through, the companies that produce products dedicated to world of videogames they have sometimes received requests from some offices that also deal with journalism.
As mentioned above, the quality of a product compared to a poorer one can make a difference in productivity of a single employee. This happens because, during design phases of certain products, aspects are taken into account that would otherwise take second place. A classic example can be done by comparing one of the best keyboards for office use and one among many high-end gaming keyboards.
Gaming keyboards spotted in several desks
In this regard, a study of analysts has examined the sales data recorded by two keyboards destined, however, to two completely different markets. The companies involved were Dell and Corsair, two brands that in the world of peripherals dominate the market thanks to their variety and quality of products. For the most experienced in the sector it is clear that when we talk about Dell keyboards we are referring to a product intended for office use only, while if we talk about Corsair we are dealing with the videogame world made of RGB LEDs and mechanical gaming keyboards.
Why the analysts have chosen these two brands is easy to understand, but the real question is “Why compare sales figures of a keyboard used in offices with one purchased by gamers? ”. The need in analyzing these products arises from the fact that in recent years gaming keyboards have also reached desks of employees and managers of various Italian and non-Italian companies, replacing the classic membrane keyboards quieter and more compact.
According to the data provided by several e-commerce, it seems that the purchases made with VAT gaming keyboards have increased and it seems that finding a Corsair, Logitech or Asus ROG gaming keyboard in an office is easier and easier.
Choosing a peripheral, whatever its use, is always difficult because each individual user has his own needs and “comfort”, therefore the fact of falling back on a mark of quality always generates a little more confidence when buying. The reason that seems to have prompted even employees to choose one of the gaming keyboards on the market, rather than a classic office keyboard, concerns reliability and feedback that certain switches (cherry) give to the keys.
Gaming performance also required by employees
In the world of gaming peripherals, users are always looking for the more responsive mouse, of the headphones with the best sound and of keyboard with less input lag possible, especially those who play ai FPS titles where precision and speed are required. The latter however is a peculiarity sought also in other sectors, in fact, journalists, editors, writers, programmers, typists and other figures who spend a lot of time with their hands on the keyboard have the habit and the need to write quickly and with confidence.
Not everyone is able to write without looking at the keyboard, but on average there are those who find themselves having to buy a keyboard every year due to their own pace of work that require a rather high writing speed. But writing fast also means do not control the strength that is used when pressing the and then keys several times membrane keyboards are damaged (even if after numerous “pressures”) depriving us of a vowel or a consonant.
Gaming keyboards are designed to respond instantly at the press of a button and also provide a feedback that goes far beyond that of membrane keyboards. It goes without saying that, in general, gaming keyboards (mechanical) are products that far exceed the best office keyboards (membrane) so, if later on you were to see more and more Corsair, Logitech, Steelseries branded keyboards on the desk of a journalist of the courier of the evening, know that that reporter probably works better than all the others.
