    Hmm...I'm using that myself..But it got a bit dusty and few buttons are jammed..Using this for a long time now...Should I buy the same keyboard again?It's pretty good for the price indeed.But the highier priced so called ''gaming'' keyboards are any better?Or do they feel the same as this?

    Simple, look for membrane keys. I know the one obvious choice that might come to your mind is Bloody series. However I've seen good MSI, Gigabyte or Asus MB keyboards at that price range here in Dhaka. You can do some research and see what you'll like the most

    Feeling is same. Rubber dome above a plastic circuit.

    Some have backlighting if you need it.

    And the keycaps a little taller than generic A4tech ones. A4tech use low profile one I believe or at least the one I bought did. Whereas "gaming" ones use standard ones.
    ex:







    Some give ypu software to set up macro chain.

    Yeah, I need some cheap gaming keyboard that doesn't have two button limitations.

    I also need clicky buttons. Spongy buttons are pain in the ¤¤¤. And I need big buttons (keys). The the thin laptop buttons because they're too thin and I dont like it.

    And I dont need backlight and rgb.
