Best alternatives to Wooting 60HE?

Wooting 60HE is a fantastic rapid trigger keyboard and rightly so. But if you’re looking into alternatives, be it lower price or different layout, here are my best picks that are on Wooting’s level or very close:

  • Drunkdeer A75 – 75% layout keyboard with hall effect, rapid trigger, DKS and cheaper than Wooting 60HE, priced $130
  • SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini – 60% keyboard with hall effect switches and rapid trigger, has a great feel to it and has really low input delay, priced at $179.99
  • Gamakay TK75HE – amazingly cheap at only $99, 75% layout, hall effect and rapid trigger, but maybe lacking in software ease of use
  • Meletrix BOOG75 – 75% keyboard, high quality build, more expensive at $229, new hall effect Gateron KS37B switches, rapid trigger and 1000Hz polling rate
New:   Nuphy Air 60 vs Keychron K7 (Best Low Profile 60% Keyboards)
