Linear Feel, Understated Look

Outfitted with linear, 35-gram electro capacitive switches, the 87-key plum keyboard is excellent for gaming, writing, and working. The switches are easy to press and only make a subtle sound when typing. As for looks, the keyboard sports an understated, two-toned look comprising white and light gray—so it won’t look out of place in the office. The keycaps are made from PBT, which is resistant to the shine that occurs from oil on the hands. If you’re in the heat of competition or cranking out a lengthy email, not to worry. Thanks to anti-ghosting technology and six-key rollover, this Plum Keyboard will recognize each and every key press. It’s also fitted with adjustable feet on the bottom to give you an angled typing experience.

one of my best keyboards so far

Updated switches! I have the older style and the tactile difference is minor. The new ones are little more stable.

Electrostatic capacitive switches are a little faster than basic bitch Cherry and Cherry-esque switches, but it is a relatively close race. The OmniPoint switch in the Apex Pro TKL's are multiple times faster. That's the switch itself. All the other variables can easily make that not matter at all. For example- How your fingers rest above the key, how quickly you push the key, how much weight there is in the key press, how close the actuation point is, how fast the controller accepts and sends out the signal, how you are plugged into the computer. If I were after speed for gaming, the first component I would optimize, after the GPU (for the specific game) of course, would be the monitor. As LinusTechTips demonstrated a few years ago or so, the speed of your display matters a lot. We are talking up to several kills per game in your favor when playing an FPS game against someone of equal skill, if they are only gaming at 60hz and you're on the bleeding edge. So, there is a good excuse to use a high refresh rate display. If I had to put together a fast keyboard setup, though- I would probably just find the fastest gaming keyboard I could that supports plugging into a PS/2 port. PS/2 ports send a direct hardware interrupt to the CPU, so it is going to outdraw USB no matter what. The problem is that less motherboards support PS/2 these days, and companies selling keyboards have little to no incentive to mention support for it, given that keyboards have been using USB en masse since 1998. If the Apex Pro TKL supported PS/2, it would be a solid candidate. Me, myself, though? Right now? I wouldn't worry too much about the speed of the keyboard. I also wouldn't piss on Steelseries if they were on fire, though that is a discussion for another day.
