As with this year’s best gaming mouse vote, we need to report not just which keyboard win, but which audience segment was responsible for that win. Let’s get into it.

Kinja Co-Op and the Kinja discussion platform as a whole are open to anyone. We want writers, readers, brands, experts, celebrities, and assholes participating in the conversation. We’re happy to see Razer’s social media team mobilizing its readers to vote, and we can’t ignore the fact that those Razer fans are passionate enough to click through to do so. We’re aware that Corsair did the same (first), but that wouldn’t have changed the results in this case.


At the same time, one of the reasons our product votes are so great is because our Kotaku, Gizmodo, and Lifehacker editorial staffs have built an amazing audience of product savvy and product passionate readers, and were the vote open only to our regular readers, the Corsair K/Strafe Series would win handily, a fact also backed up strongly by which deals our readers tend to take advantage of.

Therefore, the Corsair K/Strafe Line of keyboards is the Kotaku/Gizmodo/Lifehacker choice for 2015’s best gaming keyboard, and the Razer BlackWidow Chroma is the Internet’s choice for 2015’s best gaming keyboard. This is the same result as 2013, just with newer iterations of each product subbed in.

They are both great keyboards.

It’s also worth recognizing that the Logitech G710/G710+, which has had no update since 2013, still took third place.
