Having good peripherals is equally as important as having a capable workstation. And when it comes to external keyboards, most people prefer mechanical ones for their tactile feel, durability, and overall versatility. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the best mechanical keyboards you can buy in Nepal. In this list, we have compiled the best ones ranging from Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 35,000.

Best mechanical keyboards in Nepal (Summary)

S. No.   Mechanical Keyboard Best Price in Nepal  
01 Redragon K568 Rs. 3,600
02 Redragon Demios K599 Rs. 5,200
03 Fantech Maxfit61 Rs. 6,000 / Rs. 6,500

08 Razer Huntsman Mini Rs. 24,000
09 Corsair K95 Platinum Rs. 35,000

Before jumping into our list of best mechanical keyboards in Nepal, let’s first understand what a mechanical keyboard is. Compared to your typical membrane keyboard with a single sheet of pressure-sensitive rubber/silicone, the mechanical ones have distinct spring-loaded physical switches. They are relatively louder, have a better typing feel, and are usually more expensive than membrane keyboards.

On the other hand, mechanical keyboards are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some have all of the keys, some don’t have the Numpad, and some have extra keys for utility. And their naming conventions can be quite perplexing, especially if you’re just getting into the world of mechanical keyboards. So before we continue, here is a table that summarizes some of the most common keyboard sizes.

Keyboard Size   No. of Keys   Number Pad Home Cluster  Function Row Arrow Keys  Top Number Keys    Alphabets
Full-Sized (100%) 104                 ✔
75% 80-84
65% 66-69
60% 58-65

Best On The Budget

Redragon K568

The Redragon K568 is undoubtedly the best mechanical keyboard you can get by spending the least money. It is quite a durable one as it features a metal top and ABS plastic bottom. But here’s the best part, it’s even waterproof. So no need to worry about spilling Mountain Dew on the board during those intense gaming hours!

On the other hand, its RGB lighting is not as versatile as only 9 modes are available. But for the price, it’s nothing to complain about. Unfortunately, the keyboard is only available with clicky blue switches. So, if you want something quieter, you’re gonna have to look elsewhere.

Moreover, its cable is not detachable either. Finally, let’s address the elephant in the room: latency. Budget keyboards usually tend to have mediocre input latency, and the K568 is no different. While it poses no obstruction for casual gaming, consider spending on a more expensive unit if you play competitive games requiring faster reaction time.

Redragon K568 Key Features:
  • TKL Form-factor
  • RGB Backlighting
  • Water-proof design
  • Blue Switches
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 3,600

Best Under Rs. 6,000

Redragon Demios K599

If you want a compact mechanical keyboard for gaming but don’t want to give up on arrow keys, the Redragon Demios K599 is the perfect option for you. It is a compact TKL keyboard, almost the size of a 60% keyboard.

It has a detachable USB-C cable and can be used wirelessly via a 2.4GHz connection as well. Redragon says its built-in battery lasts 60 hours without the LED backlighting off and around 20 hours with the LED on.

Redragon Demios K599

While we are on the topic of LED, the RGB backlighting on the Demios is one of the weakest on any Redragon keyboard. While it is fully customizable, it does not get quite as bright. On the contrary, the stabilizers on the board are one of the best Redragon offers.

There is not much to pick from as the Demios K599 is only available in black colorway and linear red switches. However, despite these drawbacks, it is the best keyboard available for under Rs. 6,000 in Nepal thanks to the fantastic typing experience and an uncompromised compact layout.

For the keyboard modders, it is hot-swappable but it only supports 3-pin switches.
If you want brighter RGB and color/switch options but can do with the lack of arrow keys, then the Redragon Draconic K530 is just around the corner.

Redragon Demios K599 Key Features:
  • Compact TKL Form-factor
  • RGB Backlighting
  • Wired Type-C + 2.4GHz Wireless Connection
  • 3-pin Hot Swappable Switches
  • Red Switches
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 5,200

Fantech Maxfit61

Fantech Maxfit61 is a compact 60% keyboard with excellent RGB and detachable Type-C connection. However, unlike the Redragon Demios K599 above, this one does not support a wireless connection.

Fantech MaxFit61

The main selling point of this keyboard is the pre-lubed stabilizers and full hot-swappable compatibility with 3-pin and 5-pin switches. It also has pre-installed case foam that dampens the sound for a more pleasing typing experience.

Pick this keyboard over the Redragon Demios if you prefer better RGB and better typing experience over the ease of wireless connectivity.

Fantech MaxFit61 Key Features:
  • 60% Form-factor (61 Keys)
  • RGB Backlighting
  • Detachable Type-C Cable
  • Hot Swappable Switches
  • Blue or Red Switch (Outemu)
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 6,000 (Black), Rs. 6,500 (White)

Best Under Rs. 15,000

Going over the 6k budget constraint opens you to a wider variety of mechanical keyboards. There are no more tacky fonts on the keycaps screaming “GAMER”, no more compromises, more colors, more everything.

Picking up a Keychron keyboard at this price bracket is the safest bet for most people. They look minimal and feature Gateron switches which are preferable for casual users. Brands like Logitech and Corsair also have quite a few offerings for gamers.

Remember, we’re only talking about keyboards that are currently available in Nepal. On a global scale, the selection of good keyboards in this price range is enormous. With that out of the way, let’s look at our three picks.

Fantech Maxfit67

It might come as a surprise, but the Fantech Maxfit67 is the best mechanical keyboard for the price in Nepal right now. The board punches above its weight class and its 65% layout with the knob on the top-right looks stunning. More so, the keycaps are made of PBT, meaning they are thicker and more durable. Fantech also provides extra accent keycaps and some Mac keys.

Fantech MaxFit67

Altogether, there are three connection modes available here: wired (Type-C), wireless (Bluetooth and 2.4GHz)

Despite the body being all plastic, it feels incredibly sturdy. The custom POM+PA12 stabilizers do not rattle. And the pre-installed plate and tray foam eliminate loud resonance and pings. All in all, the typing experience on the MaxFit67 outshines any other keyboard on this list.

Moving on, it has two switch options: Kailh Box White (Clicky) and Pre-Lubed Gateron Milky Yellow Switches (Linear). Likewise, the built-in 4,000mAh battery is rated for 70 hours of usage with RGB on and 240 hours with the RGB turned off.

Other distinguishing features of this keyboard include South Facing PCB, which allows you to use any keycaps without interference. Thus, the Fantech MaxFit67 leaves no room for complaints. Although, their companion app could be better.

Fantech MaxFit67 Key Features:
  • 65% Form Factor
  • South Facing PCB
  • Rotary Encoder Knob
  • Wireless (Bluetooth + 2.4GHz) & Wired
  • Gateron Hotswap Sockets (5 pin switches compatible)
  • Kailh Box White / Pre-Lubed Gateron Milky Yellow Switches
  • DYE-SUB PBT Keycaps
  • Includes plate foam & tray foam
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 13,000 (Black), Rs. 13,500 (White)

Logitech G413

The Logitech G413 is a full-sized mechanical keyboard built for gamers. It comes with tactile Romer-G switches, which are light and responsive.

Furthermore, its sub 2ms latency makes it an excellent choice for competitive gamers. So if gaming is your top priority, look no further. Despite being a gaming keyboard, the well-rounded typing experience suits it even for office usage too.

Similarly, its frame is made up of brushed aluminum, while its full-sized form factor means it takes up a lot of desk space. This keyboard even features a USB passthrough which can be used to plug USB devices into. But there’s bad news for the RGB fanatics out there since the board only lights up red.

Furthermore, it does not have a detachable cable or wireless connectivity. Another drawback is that the macros are only available on the function keys.

Logitech G413 Key Features:
  • 100% Form Factor
  • Aluminum alloy case
  • Wired Connection
  • USB Passthrough
  • Romer-G tactile mechanical switches
  • Red Backlight
  • Extra gaming keycaps
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 12,000

Keychron K8

For our third pick, we have the Keychron K8, which is a wireless TKL keyboard with an aluminum frame. It comes with Gateron switches, and you have the option to pick from red, blue or brown variants.

The two connection modes (wired and Bluetooth) make the keyboard quite versatile, but it doesn’t support a 2.4GHz connection. Nonetheless, the K8 will fair well in gaming as well as office usage and programming.

Keychron K8

The RGB on the board is decent as well. But the lack of programmable macro keys and companion software holds the Keychron K8 back. Moreover, it is also available in a hot-swappable version which retails for Rs. 15,500.

Keychron K8 Key Features:
  • TKL Form Factor
  • Aluminum alloy case
  • Wired Type-C + Wireless Bluetooth Connection
  • Gateron switches
  • RGB Backlight
  • Extra Mac keycaps
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 13,000

Best Premium Mechanical Keyboards in Nepal

High-end mechanical keyboards are usually directed toward gamers who want to excel in their craft. Besides that, a niche hobby that revolves around building custom keyboards also exists. However, these keyboards are not readily available in Nepal. Thus, we are limited to top-of-the-line options.

Corsair K95 Platinum

The Corsair K95 Platinum is one of the best premium mechanical gaming keyboards available in the Nepali market. The 1.1mm pre-travel on the Cherry MX Speed switches makes the keyboard extremely responsive.

As expected, this full-sized keyboard covers a big footprint. And it comes with 6 dedicated macro keys, a USB passthrough, media buttons, and a scroll wheel. Also, the included plush wrist rest further improves the ergonomics.

Decked in RGB, it boasts fully customizable per-key RGB lighting and under-glow light strips. Likewise, their iCUE companion software is one of the best in the industry for customization.

Like many gaming keyboards, the K95 Platinum lacks wireless connectivity. But the super-low 1.8ms latency is all you require for hardcore competitive gaming action.

Gaming aside, the keyboard will perform just as well if you have to crunch numbers in your line of work. However, some people might find the Cherry MX Speed too sensitive. There is no need to fret though as the keyboard is also available with Cherry MX Brown switches.

The only downside of the Corsair K95 Platinum is the ABS keycaps which feel a little cheap.

Corsair K95 Platinum Key Features:
  • 100% Form Factor
  • Aluminum alloy case
  • Included Wrist rest
  • Wired Connection
  • USB Passthrough + 3.5mm jack
  • Razer Switches
  • RGB Backlight
  • Dedicated macro keys, media keys, and volume wheel
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 35,000

Razer BlackWidow Elite

Razer is a brand synonymous with gaming. And its BlackWidow Elite is quite similar to the K95 Platinum from Corsair. It is a full-sized wired mechanical keyboard with dedicated media controls and a volume wheel. Razer has also included a magnetic wrist rest with the keyboard.

But unlike the K95 Platinum, this keyboard lacks dedicated macro keys. Besides the USB passthrough, it also has a 3.5mm audio jack on the side.

Razer BlackWidow Elite best mechanical keyboards in Nepal

Something else Razer is synonymous with is RGB. The RGB on this board is fully customizable and can be controlled through Razer’s Synapse 3 software. Sadly, the software is available only on Windows.

Moving on, this keyboard uses Razer’s custom switches. The available options are Razer Orange (tactile), Razer Yellow (linear), and Razer Green (clicky). The input latency here is a bit higher than the K95 Platinum at 2.4ms. However, it is nothing to worry about as you will never notice the difference in real-life scenarios.

Razer BlackWidow Elite Key Features:
  • 100% Form Factor
  • Metal top construction
  • Included Wrist rest
  • Wired Connection
  • USB Passthrough
  • Cherry MX Speed Switches
  • RGB Backlight
  • Dedicated macro keys, media keys, and volume roller
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 19,000

Razer Huntsman Mini

If full-sized keyboards are not your thing, then you can consider the Razer Huntsman Mini instead. This 60% keyboard features optical switches and PBT keycaps which are a step up from ABS ones present on most gaming keyboards. Like the BlackWidow Elite, it also has per-key RGB and customization options through the Synapse 3 software.

Razer Huntsman Mini best mechanical keyboards in Nepal

Being a 60% keyboard, it lacks a lot of dedicated keys but offers a minimal look and massive space for mouse movement. However, MMO gamers might find the lack of dedicated macro keys a hassle. While it has a detachable USB-C connection, it lacks a USB passthrough. It also lacks a wrist rest.

Razer Huntsman Mini Key Features:
  • 60% Form Factor
  • Doubleshot PBT Keycaps
  • Wired Connection
  • Razer Switches
  • RGB Backlight
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 24,000
