The best wireless keyboards

The best wireless keyboards

Looking for a new keyboard? Why not invest in a wireless keyboard? They can bring a clean uncluttered look to your desk. You can banish cables from your desk and feel more productive!

Wireless keyboards have come on leaps and bounds since their earlier counterparts which may not have been as responsive as you would like. However, Bluetooth and USB technology has improved dramatically since the early days and now wireless keyboards are just as good as wired ones in terms of responsiveness and reliability. Their battery life is much better too. They have improved their range (how far away can you have the keyboard) and their latency which is why they are so much more responsive.

Even the gaming keyboards have a better battery life. Many gaming keyboards have RGB lighting (stands for Red, Green and Blue LED lighting which can be combined to make any colour combination) and they still don’t drain the battery as much as in the past. And they look good!

Here’s a look at some of the best wireless keyboards on the market.

1. Cherry Stream Desktop

This isn’t the best-looking keyboard out of all the ones here but it certainly is one of the most affordable. It’s also the easiest to set up as you literally just plug in and it is ready to go! The keyboard is big so it’s not the most easily transportable but if you are looking for something to work with at home and are looking for a clutter free desk, then this will more than do the job.

The other downside is that it only connects to one device whereas some of the others that we will look at can connect to more than one device. Here’s a review from Tech Radar with all the details you need if this is the keyboard you are considering buying. It’s for the combined package of mouse and keyboard which both run off one USB stick so freeing up some of your computer/laptop ports. https://www.techradar.com/uk/reviews/cherry-stream-desktop-keyboard-and- mouse-combo

2. Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro

Here’s one of the most expensive keyboards in our review. Built for gaming, it has many premium features including RGB lighting. The keyboard is well built and feels premium too, with a plush wrist rest, and lots of impressive switches. It can be connected to up to 5 devices (3 via Bluetooth, one via USB cable and one via Razer HyperSpeed wireless) which is great if you like to multi-task between your PC and your phone!

The price of around £150 is one of the major disadvantages but if you like gaming, it’s well-built premium keyboard that could be worth the investment. https://www.thegamecollection.net/razer-blackwidow-v3-pro-wireless- mechanical-gaming-keyboard-green

3. Apple Magic Keyboard

Of course, the major disadvantage of this keyboard is that it only works with Apple products. However, we couldn’t not include it as it does work well with Apple Macs. It’s very sleek and compact. There are not many features on it but if you have an iPad or Mac, then this is the only keyboard you can use. We found some reconditioned magic keyboards on Amazon for £51.50 but here’s the link to a new “British English” keyboard: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Apple-Magic-Keyboard-British-English/dp/ B09BRFWN1T/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2VDNEEQ5GFGNU&dchild=1&keywords=apple %2Bmagic%2Bkeyboard&qid=1633600743&s=computers&sprefix=apple%2Bma %2Ccomputers%2C178&sr=1-4&th=1

4. Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard

This keyboard falls into the category of best budget buy. Retailing around £39.99 (cheaper on Amazon), this is great value for money as it allows you to connect up to 3 devices and allows you to toggle between them at the switch of a button on the keyboard.

It’s also super sleek and travel friendly so you can take it with you wherever you go. Handy for typing on the go if you want to travel with your phone. One of the drawbacks is that it isn’t rechargeable but it comes with 2 AAA batteries which have a 2-year lifespan so that may make up for the loss of that feature.

Take a look at the keyboard on Logitech’s website and see all the different colour combinations that it comes in. https://www.logitech.com/en-gb/products/keyboards/k380-multi-device.html? utm_campaign=dr&utm_source=google&utm_medium=pla&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI 2e7oj6228wIVKBoGAB0zUwl8EAQYBCABEgJv5fD_BwE#buy

5. Logitech G915 TKL Lightspeed

Did you know that TKL stands for TenKeyLess keyboard? It means that the numeric keypad has been removed to create a smaller keyboard. It’s perfect for those who want to create more space on their desk and perfect for gaming keyboards.

So, the Logitech keyboard here is much smaller than the rest that we have reviewed. It can be used for gaming or for productivity as there is a button that can switch between the two modes. It has responsive keys and a host of other features that just about justify its price tag of around £170!

6. Razer Pro Type

Here, Razer have taken all of their gaming expertise and put it into a keyboard exclusively for productivity. Although it has mechanical keys, it is incredibly quiet. You can pair up to 4 devices and it offers USB-C charging so it’s very versatile. It’s not the cheapest at around £139.99 but doesn’t it look great? https://www.razer.com/gb-en/gaming-keyboards/Razer-Pro-Type/RZ03- 03070100-R3M1
