Things to consider when buying gaming keypad:

The number of keys. There are many models to choose from so it is advisable to count the keys you would most likely use in games before purchasing a gaming pad. There are pads which feature fewer keys but there are also some that accommodate 46 keys. If you are not sure how many you would use we would recommend to pick a gaming pad around 32 keys that in most cases would be plenty but still not too many to confuse you.

Design. It would be great if you could buy a gaming keypad that would blend well with the rest of your setup. Some of them offer LED illumination and maybe you could even pick complimentary colors for your ideal setup.

Quality. Try to pick a gaming keypad that is of high-quality materials and well constructed. It is advisable to spend a little more for a gaming keypad of better quality that would last you longer and moreover, it would feel more comfortable to your hand. Preferable pick one backed with a long warranty in order to be on the safe side for the next year or two.
