Staff favorite

The Razer Turret is the first (and only) officially licensed Xbox keyboard and mouse, and is fully compatible with both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It features a lappable wireless design for comfortable couch gaming, is lined with mechanical keys, and has a dedicated Xbox button. It's weighty and feels outstanding in-hand. Premium features and fantastic design make this an excellent choice if you can overlook that expensive price tag.

Cut the cable: Logitech G613

Cut the tether with the Logitech G613 wireless keyboard, positioned as the ultimate cable-free solution for gamers. Wireless is increasingly appealing, especially with console gaming, and Logitech boasts a one-millisecond report rate with its in-house Romer-G mechanical switches. With up to one year of battery life, this is the best hassle-free keyboard for Xbox, including the Series X|S.

Best for budgets: Havit KB-395L

Havit's low-profile mechanical keyboard offers an incredible value with built-in RGB lighting, great build quality, a detachable cable, and a solid overall typing experience, making it a fantastic choice for both PC and Xbox Series X|S use. If you want the best bang for your buck, look no further than the Havit KB-395L

Try it cheap: Logitech MK270

If you want to dip your toes into gaming on the Xbox Series X|S with a keyboard and mouse without emptying your savings, Logitech makes a wonderful MK270 bundle that often comes in for $20 or less. This combo keyboard and mouse package offers little more than the bare essentials to get started, but you'll still be pleased with the quality on offer for the price.

All you need: Corsair K95

The Corsair K95 packs all you need from a gaming keyboard, although it's paired with an equally premium price. It's a sturdy RGB-draped peripheral built for daily gaming, with a choice of Cherry MX Speed or Brown mechanical switches for a great feel while typing. Moving custom profiles from PC to your Xbox Series X|S is also simple, via 8MB of onboard storage.

For couch gaming: Corsair K63 Lapboard

Corsair's K63 paired with this "lapboard" is ideal for living room gamers. It offers a couch-friendly, more versatile alternative to Razer's Turret. This setup centers around its removable K63 mechanical keyboard, which features Cherry MX Red switches. With its accompanying detachable lapboard, this creates a cohesive surface for mouse and keyboard use. Keep in mind, this doesn't come with a mouse like the Razer Turret does.

The best keyboards for console gaming

The Razer Turret isn't budget-friendly, but as the first officially licensed keyboard for Xbox, it firmly delivers on its premium price tag. Buyers will secure Razer's leading mechanical keyboard and mouse technology, compacted into a lap-friendly design for living room gaming. Topped with Chroma RGB lighting and a dedicated Xbox button, no other keyboard offers a comparable experience for the Xbox Series X and Series S.
