There's a wide spectrum of applications for keyboards out there. Whether you're looking for a new one for school or a remote job, you'll need something light you can take on the go, or you just want a replacement for your trusty older keyboard. There are also a number of smaller brands that are worth considering.
Both wired and wireless keyboards are designed for work rather than gaming. It's also available at a variety of prices, because you don't need to spend a lot on a better keyboard.
Note that unlike phones, televisions, notebooks, and other business products, keyboards aren't updated frequently. There's a good chance the best keyboard for you is a model that has existed for a while. However, the marketplace is vast, with a wide range of features, such as weighted keys or a wrist rest, and we'll continue to test new keyboards and update this list.
Logitech's is now available in two smaller versions, which exclude the number pad and other keys, but both are priced at $100, the same price as the standard MX Keys. Both versions come in different shades -- rose, pale gray, and graphite.
Our view is that the full-size MX Keys better for most individuals. It requires less space on your desk and is ergonomically better because it allows you to keep your mouse closer to your keyboard, which results in less reaching and improved shoulder alignment. The Mini also has three new keys, which provide you with shortcuts to dictation (available in select countries for Windows and MacOS users), emojis, and the all-important muting and unmuting of your microphone for video-conference calls.
The old-school Mac keyboard and its pleasing scissor-key mechanism are the keys to have for most Mac users. It's a Bluetooth keyboard that connects to MacOS instantly, and the charge of its built-in battery lasts for many months. This standard keyboard is slim, minimal and does not compromise Apple's hardware. And it's, too.
The Pro Type mechanical keyboard may require some adjustments if you're familiar with this mechanical keyboard. They are tactile but not tactile; when the keys drop out, you'll just hear a muted clack. (You can like them on Razer's site.) The 45 grams of actuation force means the mechanical keys do not require much force, so your fingers tire.
The keycaps have a soft-touch coating, making it easier to read and with the backlight off, however key legends can be confusing. Also, the number keys and media controls can be manipulated via Razer's Synapse software.
The keyboard is compatible with up to three devices via Bluetooth. It can also be used with a 2.4GHz USB receiver. It can not be used as a wired keyboard, although it can be used while it is charging and connected wirelessly. However, the battery life can be rated at up to 84 hours without the backlight, but at least 12 hours with it on. Basically, don't leave the backlight on or you'll be charging it daily.
The K3 Bluetooth keyboard, which is lightweight and robust, is a 75 percent size, meaning it doesn't have a 10-key number pad and still has function and directional keys. The body, which is made from aluminum on the bottom, is lightweight and sturdy.
Keychron's own low-profile optical switches, brown tactile, blue clicky or red linear, were tested on each switch, but all three options worked fantastic. Also, the switches are hot-swappable, allowing you to customize your typing experience by pulling out and replacing them without selling them. (A will be available soon.)
It is available for Mac use, but Windows-related keycaps are included in the box. A switch on the back left allows you to choose between MacOS/iOS or Windows/Android. Another switch allows you to switch between a Bluetooth connection (it can connect to up to three devices) and a USB-C-USB-A cable. Battery life is good, but keeping the backlight on all the time, especially at its higher settings, will drain it quickly.
This two-zone version of Satechi's wireless keyboard saves a desk by jettisoning some of its directional keys. It also has a Mac keyboard design, which allows you to keep all of the shortcut keys back to the screen. (It will also work with any Windows PCs, however it will cost you a lot of money, and it will refund expenses.) It also has a USB-C connector on the back and it can be used connected if you want to keep working while it cool
The Zergotech Freedom is a compact, one-piece split, round, and ergonomic keyboard. It is not unlike other versions like the, but it is not bulky, clunky, or unsightly, or in need of add-ons. It also gives Logitech a full desk setup of ergonomic devices when combined with its or MX Ergo trackball mouse.
Despite the low-profile design, there's plenty of key travel and a pleasing, responsive bounce. This compact keyboard isn't backlit, but the gray keys and white markings have enough contrast that they're visible in low-light situations, just not in total darkness. The K860 is available on Bluetooth or Logitech's USB-A Unifying receiver, which makes it a good choice if you need one keyboard that can quickly switch between computers, phones, and tablets.
The K780, which is longer lasting than its predecessor, has a number pad and, more importantly, a slot at the back of the keyboard to hold your tablet or phone while you type.
The keyboard includes Logitech's Flow software feature. When this wireless keyboard is paired with one of the company's Flow-enabled mice, you may move your cursor between paired devices on the same network and the keyboard will follow. It's like having a virtual.
For vacation, the K380 would be the perfect choice, but the K780 is the better choice if you're going between a phone, tablet, and a computer at home or the office.
The BK10 is a Bluetooth keyboard that can be connected to up to three devices and allows you to quickly switch between keys above the numeric keypad. What's better is the keyboard is designed to work with Windows, MacOS, iOS, iOS, and Android devices.
It's a slim, lightweight body, with matte-finished stainless steel on the bottom and sides, and ABS plastic on the bottom. It's also, and the keyboard's scissor keys give it a responsive key feel, which it will last for up to three months on a single charge.
Unlike Apple's smaller Magic Keyboard, it's a full keyboard with a number pad. One significant difference is that the left-hand Control and Function keys are flipped in position. Otherwise, this is a great choice if you want to have a budget-friendly operating system or a combination of them all.
I've tested dozens of gaming and office keyboards mechanical and membrane in the past few years, and Varmilo's Moonlight MA108M (using the company's own EC Switch V2 switches) is easily one of the finest mechanical keyboards available. From its excellent build quality to its unassuming eased feel and pleasing sound, it provides an incredible typing experience.
The Moonlight is a nice-looking keyboard, which I tested on an 110%, 108-key version as well as. The other themes that are currently available with Cherry MX switches are: panda- and ocean-inspired keyboards.
The Freedom, like most ergonomic keyboards, is designed to alleviate headaches encountered by using a traditional office keyboard. Instead of a costly redesign, Zergotech developed a split ergonomic keyboard and improved it with unique gliding palm rests that allow your hands to slide around while you type. The keys also have an ergonomic curve that allows you to observe the same movements.
One half of the keyboard tents upward in a 5-degree angle, but there are four folding feet underneath to strengthen the top, top, left, and right of each side to ensure that the wrist rest is symmetrical. This allows for me to extend my time in the long run, despite having to modify this keyboard and a standard keyboard.
A lot of thanks to the fact that no software was required to program the keyboard for your needs, such as writing shortcut keys, copying or swapping keys, and transforming from a Windows to a MacOS key layout. It's all done with simple key combos, and a text editor like Notepad for the interface. (Check out the checklist to get an idea of how it works.) There's also a mouse layer you can activate if you prefer keeping your hands on the keyboard the most frequently.
The keyboard's overall appeal is exceptional thanks to custom-made Kailh Box mechanical switches that eliminate any unwanted off-putting noise and no wobble due to the boxed stem design. The Kailh white switches I tested have a pleasing click but may be too loud if you're sharing space. The company also has a quieter tactile switch that also helps prevent clacking.
The new approach to the ergonomic keyboard is true. While the keyboard layout isn't much different from what you're likely to, the adjustment period is relatively short and being able to get the proper positioning for me is much better than others. It's the sliding wrist rests that really help you get you in the right position to relieve your wrist and shoulder pain. This keyboard is also a worthwhile investment covered by a 60-day money-back guarantee and a two-year warranty.
This ergonomic keyboard is vast, wired and designed primarily for Windows users. Although it is a full-size keyboard, it requires a decent amount of desk space. You're probably better off keeping this on an and your mouse on your desktop.
This one takes a bit time to adapt to, partly because of the split keyboard design, but also because of its high actuation force. However, it is comfortable, and an attachable lift at the front puts your hands at a negative angle for better positioning.
Three programmable hotkeys are left at the top left, followed by a row of media controls and quick-launch buttons for the calculator, screen snips, TaskView to see your open windows, system lock, and search. It even has a shortcut button for symbols and emoji.
The HB030B is a functional and well-designed speaker for your phone, tablet, or computer. Despite its appearance being relatively small, the layout does not require much time to adjust to, and while I expected it to feel like I was typing on a tabletop, the keys are comfortable with traveling and making adjustments. Arteck even gave it a backlight that can be altered to one of seven colors, which is something far more costly keyboards don't have.
