IOGear IKON Gaming Keyboard Conslusion

All in all, the IKON Gaming keyboard is a good bang for the buck if you do not want to put a lot of money toward a gaming keyboard. For the price, it offers some solid features, including that mechanical keyboard feel, anti-ghosting keys, and LED back-lighting. While not the same as the top-of-the-line $150+ gaming keyboards on the market, the IKON Gaming Keyboard is a very good step up from any stock keyboards without breaking the bank.

There were a few issues that I think if addressed would make this keyboard stand out much more in the gaming market. The inclusion of a USB hub would be a tremendous plus that a lot of gamers, including myself, look for. Having those ports available and closer makes jumping into a game or using a peripheral so much easier. Also having some sort of raised key to make the WASD stand out during gaming without having to look at the keyboard will make or break your in-game score. Personally I would also like to have seen the backlash key in the normal position for easier memory use, but that's very minor.

If you are in the market for a new gaming keyboard and don't want to break the bank, or if you want a higher end keyboard for every day and work use, them the IKON Gaming Keyboard from IOGear is a recommended solution. You cannot go wrong with the price and the features.

 

Pros:

  • Anti-Ghosting keys
  • Windows Lockout
  • LED Back-lighting
  • Water resistant design
  • Mechanical-like membrane keys

 

Cons:

  • No USB Hub integrated
  • WASD keys do not have any raised portion of the key
