Best 5 Keyboards for Coding

REALFORCE 87U

The RealForce 87U is high quality and sturdy black or grayish keyboard. Except for its ABS made spacebar, all the other keycaps of this keyboard are PBT made. PBT or Polybutylene terephthalate is a durable high-quality material that will last longer (3X) than ABS. You can expect this keyboard to last for a very long time.

This keyboard uses torpe switches that give a satisfying and smooth sensation when you press a key but it gives a clicky sound. The USB is located at the keyboard’s top left corner and not removable. When the light is not bright enough, you will have a bit of difficulty with the dark gray printed key labels with the exception of the light red esc key and Windows keys with their Windows logo.

DUCKY SHINE 5 RGB

True to its name, the Ducky Shine 5 RGB really does shine. Each of its individual keys has a backlight so it shines especially in the dark. Unlike most backlit keyboards, the Ducky Shine does not need a software that changes the lighting effects and colors of the keyboard lights. You just need to use some key combination to change its lighting profile. You can adjust each color’s (green, red, blue) lighting level as well.
This keyboard has a mini-USB removable cable that is 4.9 feet or 1.5 meters long. Ducky Shine has a rough body but it has smooth double-shot ABS keycaps. Meaning, they are thicker and durable. It also uses DIPswitches so it is Mac compatible.
This keyboard has 24 media keys. You need to check the manual instructions to bring the combinations up as they come disabled by default. Ducky Shine has a very fast key press response due to its ARM M3 MCU. It is only available in full size though, so you can forget about getting a Tenkeyless version of Ducky Shine.

WASD KEYBOARDS CODE

The WASD Keyboards CODE is an all-black programming keyboard that you use to code. Its typical style does not have a logo or special engraving in the front.
It has smooth keycaps with good quality labels. It does not have labels on its Windows Keys though. This keyboard features a MICRO USB unbraided, 1.8m or 70.8 inches cable with its own cable tie. It allows you to route your cable in different directions (back, left, right, etc.).
The CODE keyboard comes on with 7 levels LED backlighting. You can also choose from different options such as Blue or Brown switches, Cherry MX, Tenkeyless or Full size.
One of our well-liked features is its compatibility with Mac machines where you just need to use the DIPswitches to disable to enable its OS keys. You can also change the function of the keyboard from QWERTY to Mac mode.
