The keyboard is one of the most used parts of the PC and with the advancements of technology, we are constantly on the search for a device that is more convenient for us. Today, we will discuss the things to consider when choosing a wireless keyboard and we've also rounded up a list of the best ones you could buy online right now.
We think that most of the items that we included are suited for different types of situations like gaming or even the current work from home policy! Read on to find out!
Wireless keyboards are great for mobile productivity or if you want a clean and minimal set-up less all the wires. Before making a purchase, consider the things below in our buying guide so that your expectations meet the device performance.
Wireless keyboards can be connected in two ways – via Bluetooth or radio frequency (RF). Bluetooth connection is generally free from interference but when it comes to latency or delay time, there could sometimes be a slight delay. If you are going for a wireless keyboard that is connected via Bluetooth, make sure that your PC is Bluetooth-ready, else you will need to get a Bluetooth adapter.
RF keyboards come with a dongle that has to be plugged into your computer’s USB port and operates in 2.4GHz band. If there are a lot of devices that use rf around you, this might interfere connection, leading to connection issues.
What types of activity are using the keyboard for? Are you a student who need to type a lot of essays? Are you an office-worker who needs to input a lot of numbers? The keyboard you should choose also depends on the setting and tasks you will use it to.
Full-size keyboards are the most standard, and this is the type that usually comes when you buy a PC. All the keys are included - letters, numbers, function keys, arrow keys, modifiers, and the number pad. If your typing requires you to use the number pad often, then this is the keyboard layout recommended for you.
The difference between full-sized keyboards and compact keyboards is that the former lacks the presence of number key pad. If your work or task doesn't require you to input much numbers or if you are used to using the number keys above the letters, then this is a good choice for you.
