Wireless Keyboard

Need a new wireless keyboard? Whether for office administration, blogging, data entry, or day-to-day computer use, we have experienced discomfort when using a typical computer keyboard because a "normal" keyboard is not designed to meet the natural position of our resting hands. To avoid twisting our forearms and pointing our wrists down to type, we recommend using an ergonomic keyboard to reduce muscle tension and provide long-lasting comfort by positioning your hands in the natural intended position.

About Wireless and Bluetooth Keyboards

USB Radio Frequency vs. Bluetooth: What’s the difference?

When looking for a new wireless keyboard, you have two popular options: a Bluetooth-enabled keyboard or a Radio Frequency (RF) --enabled keyboard through a USB dongle.

Advantages and Disadvantages of USB-RF Keyboards

In modern wireless keyboards, 2.4GHz RF offers a more stable connection and often an almost invisible typing lag. No desktop or laptop computer has built-in support for these keyboards, which is why they always come with a USB dongle that acts as a signal receiver. Most USB dongles are locked to your specific keyboard, so losing the dongle often means the keyboard is no longer fit for purpose. Moreover, when swapping computers, ensure the USB dongle always comes along.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Bluetooth-enabled Keyboards

Bluetooth keyboards do away with the USB dongle, allowing them to connect easily to phones, tablets, computers, and other devices without using a USB port. Bluetooth-enabled keyboards often have reliable connections but are slightly more prone to lag or momentary connection loss, particularly in environments with many active Bluetooth connections (such as an office building or a coffee shop). Bluetooth connection often resolves and reconnects on its own or can be easily fixed by restarting the keyboard; however, it can still be annoying, especially if it happens often. 

Wireless Keyboards FAQs

How do wireless keyboards work?

Wireless keyboards require radio frequencies such as WiFi, Bluetooth, or infrared technology to communicate with devices such as computers, laptops, or tablets. They also need two parts to send and receive signals: a transmitter and a receiver. Depending on the technology utilised by the keyboards, the receiver can be built-in (in the case of a Bluetooth-enabled device) or through an external part (in the case of USB-RF keyboards). Once the transmitter and receiver are paired and enabled, the computer recognises the keyboard just like it would via a cable.

Do wireless keyboards work with all computers?

Wireless keyboards connect in one of two ways: via Bluetooth or a USB receiver. With Bluetooth keyboards, support is often determined by the computer’s hardware (if it has an existing Bluetooth receiver) and operating system (some older Windows machines may not support Bluetooth drivers). If you need a keyboard to work across different platforms, a USB-RF keyboard tends to have universal compatibility with computers with USB 2.0 ports.

Are wireless keyboards worth it?

The answer to this question depends on whether you can live with cords or not. Most ergonomic wireless keyboards cost more when compared with wired counterparts on the market. With wireless models, you will be paying for the extra technology and convenience of having no cables around.

How long do wireless keyboards last?

Besides battery life and keeping it charged most wireless keyboards don't have anything to make them wear out quicker than a traditional wired keyboard. A common consideration for wireless keyboard longevity is the battery drain and life; keyboards with built-in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries make it easy to top up the charge, although they are often difficult to replace when the batteries are degraded. On the other hand, AA or AAA battery-powered keyboards often do not hold charge as long as built-in ones, but it is easy to pop the batteries out and replace them with new ones. When it comes to these keyboards, make sure you always have a steady stream of batteries available.
