The keys are not mechanical though, which would’ve made this a better deal. Like other gaming keyboards, it has gaming mode which disables windows keys, It doesn’t have mechanical keys.
Even though this offers most important features in terms of gaming, it doesn’t come with back-lighting feature. And if that is a must feature for you, then you can checkout the Expert Gaming Keyboard, that has better set of features and is completely worth its higher price.

Karura K50s is a nicely built keyboard especially if you are tight on the budget. It has seven back-lit color settings to choose from, has rigid chiclet style keys swappable WASD & arrow keys and has big palm rest.

Cooler Master Devastator Keyboard
A gaming keyboards from one of the best in business – Cooler Master. Instantly you will fall in love with the build quality and attention to design details of Cooler Master Devastator. The perfectly colored back-lighting goes well with the create artwork on the keyboard.
This gaming keyboard offers a nice feedback and key presses have a nice clicking sound. It has dedicated media keys, which proves to be quite useful feature. This one does not have the anti-ghosting feature, but we faced no issues playing games for longer sessions.
Compared to all other keyboards here, Devastator doesn’t come with windows lock key, or fancy feature like palm rest, which might be a deal breaker for some, but the addition of gaming keyboard makes it a totally worth a buy for first time gaming keyboard users.
Having tried my hands on most of these devices, I liked Redragon Karura the most simply for its simple design and ease of use. Logitech 510s is no doubt the best but unless you find a good deal locally, its hefty price tag keeps it away from our ‘Under Rs. 5000 Gaming Keyboards in India‘ list.
