Depending on your daily computer usage, the best mechanical keyboard can make all the difference. The needs of competitive gamers are different from someone focused on video or photo editing. Gaming keyboards may require less tactile keys that are easier to push. Meanwhile, video and photo editors may demand an additional dial or specific macro functionality.

Some users may just need something user friendly and affordable. Wired or wireless, even connectivity may be important outside of feature sets. There’s a little something for everyone’s efficiency needs. However, there are some underlying attributes that make a great keyboard regardless of purpose. This includes factors like build quality, durability and bang-for-buck.   

In an effort to help readers avoid spending hours online looking for the right set-up, TechRadar has provided our top five list of the best keyboards for any situation.
