60% keyboard compatible with xim?
« on: 05:07 PM - 12/13/19 »
Looking for a 60% keyboard that isnt as expensive as a ducky. I plan to eventually go to pc but for now still on console. Want a 60% keyboard compatible with xim but hopefully decent price??

Any switch preference like cherry reds, blues, browns or membranes?

Membrane keyboards are the mushy to press keyboards you'll find in an office or $10-$20 price range. But mechanical keyboards are non mushy and preferred by gamers.

Try the 60% board I'm using. I love it and the XIM recognizes it as a ducky lol.

I would def recommend the Ducky One 2 Mini RGB. One of the most popular (if not the most popular) 60% keyboard. I use it on XIM apex and it works great.

You're not tempted by an Orbweaver or Tartarus? I'd go with one in a second if I was right-handed.

Bluetooth mice & keyboards are not supported, so give those a miss. Wireless via USB dongle is ok.

Good to know i thought all these keyboard that were wireless came with chords that could directly plug them in
