100% gaming keyboard(full size)

A 60% keyboard is a keyboard that lacks the number area, the F-key navigation area, the function keys, and the arrow directional pad area. Compared with ordinary 104, 108-key full-size keyboards, they only occupy 60% of their area. 60% keyboards usually have 60, 61, 64, 67 or 68 keys.
Gaming keyboards refer to keyboards specially created for gamers, and now refer to RGB mechanical keyboards. They are usually feature-rich and have a strong sense of button sequence, allowing players to have a better gaming experience when playing games.

Why does the 60% keyboard appear?
As the functions of the Windows system become more and more perfect, the use frequency of the keys in the functional area on the right side of the keyboard gradually decreases, and many users may not use them once for a few days. The numeric key area on the right is also fully contained in the key area on the left. Therefore, in order to reduce the desktop space occupied by the keyboard and facilitate carrying out, the 60% keyboard came into being.
The new 60% keyboard looks more compact, refined, and easy to carry. There is no doubt that the 60% keyboard is the perfect choice for minimalists who don’t like laptop keyboards.

Is a 60 keyboard good for gaming?

Maybe you want to ask, is 60% of keyboards suitable for gaming? Are 60% worth buying? There is no one-size-fits-all answer to these two questions. Because for different people, their needs and ideas are different. Below I’ll list the advantages and disadvantages of 60% keyboards to help you decide.
60 Keyboard Advantages
All the advantages of the 60 keyboard have to do with its smaller, more MINI body.
1. Take up less desktop space
Taking up less desk space means more things can fit on your desk, whether it’s a stereo, headphones, a water bottle or your phone. Or, it can make your desktop look cleaner instead of cluttered. In addition, you can better position your keyboard and mouse. Reasonable placement will help relieve your hand fatigue and make you feel more comfortable.
2. Easy to carry
The 60 keyboard is smaller in size and naturally lighter in weight. Your backpack may not be able to fit a full-sized keyboard, but for a 60 keyboard, this should be easy as it is usually less than 30cm long.

60 Keyboard Disadvantages
1. Some function keys are missing
Undoubtedly, because the function key area and number area on the right side are missing, if you need to use these function keys frequently, this is indeed a headache. Some players are accustomed to the layout of the number buttons on the right, because each number button is very close, which is more convenient to use. If you use the number keys above the keyboard, because they are far apart, you usually need to carefully look for the location of each key.
2. Not suitable for multi-person operation
If you often use your keyboard to play games with your friends, then a 60% layout keyboard isn’t for you either. First of all, the preset keys of the original system need to be modified in sequence. Second, due to the reduction in the number of keyboard keys, there are fewer optional keys, and you and your friend’s four hands are protected in an area less than 30CM wide. It is conceivable How crowded and inconvenient.

Conclusion: The 60% keyboard is indeed a very good keyboard, and it is worth buying experience, but it is not suitable for everyone. If you need to carry the keyboard out frequently, like to streamline the layout to save space, or want to experience the unique touch of a mechanical keyboard when using a laptop, then I highly recommend you to buy a 60% gaming keyboard.
If you need to use the ribbon keys on the right a lot, and often use the keyboard with friends, then I would recommend an 80% keyboard or a full-size keyboard.
