If you are an IT Professional, a Gamer, an avid blogger, or one who spends lots of your time with your computer, then you definitely need a good Keyboard. There are mainly two types of Keyboards available in the market, Membrane keyboards and Mechanical keyboards. In this article, we will check out the latest mechanical keyboard from Amkette i.e. EvoFox Katana Pro.
Types of Keyboards
There are mainly two types of keyboards in the market based on switch type.
- Membrane Keyboard
- Mechanical Keyboard
A membrane keyboard uses a membrane to register the key press, i.e. Membrane keyboard switches are actuated by the user physically pushing a small contact at the bottom of the switch onto a receiver mounted along the floor of the keyboard when pressing the key cap.
Mechanical keyboards use a spring-loaded mechanism to press a physical switch. Pressing a mechanical keyboard switch moves a plastic panel out of the way so that two electrical contacts can meet. The switch then registers the key press, and the spring at the bottom allows the switch to return to its original position quickly.
Both of these types have their own advantages and disadvantages like membrane keyboards are lightweight, very silent on key press, etc. Whereas a mechanical keyboard is a breeze to type on, sturdy, customizable, etc. In this article we are mainly checking out new mechanical keyboard from Amkette i.e. EvoFox Katana Pro.
