Wireless Keyboards

Need a new wireless keyboard? Whether it be office administration, blogging, data entry or just day-to-day computer use; we have experienced discomfort when using a typical computer keyboard. This is because a normal keyboard is not designed to meet the natural position of our resting hands. Instead, we often have to twist our forearms and point our wrists down to type. We recommend using an ergonomic keyboard that's designed 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 you’re looking for a new wireless keyboard, you have two popular options: either a bluetooth-enabled keyboard or 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 imperceptible typing lag. No desktop or laptop computer has built-in support for these types of keyboards, which is why they always come with a USB dongle that acts as a signal receiver. Most USB dongles are locked to the specific keyboard that you own so losing the dongle often means that the keyboard is no good. In addition, you need to ensure that you bring the USB dongle with you if you ever need to swap computers.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Bluetooth-enabled Keyboards

Bluetooth keyboards do away with the USB dongle, which allows it to easily connect to phones, tablets, computers, and other devices without needing to use up a USB port. Bluetooth-enabled keyboards often have reliable connection, but are ever so slightly more prone to lag or momentary connection loss, particularly in environments that have many active Bluetooth connections (such as an office building or a coffee shop). The Bluetooth connection often resolves and reconnects on its own, or can be easily fixed simply by restarting the keyboard; however, it can still be an annoyance especially if it happens too often. Bluetooth also tends to drain a keyboard’s battery faster, which is a major consideration if you are looking at a keyboard that does not have an inbuilt rechargeable battery.

Wireless Keyboards FAQs

How do wireless keyboards work?

Wireless keyboards require radio frequencies such as WiFi, Bluetooth of infrared technology to communicate with devices such as computers, laptops or tablets. They also need two parts to send and receive the 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 as if it were connected 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 almost has universal compatibility with computers that have USB2.0 ports.

Are wireless keyboards worth it?

This 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 wires.

How long do wireless keyboards last?

Besides battery life and keeping it charged, most wireless keyboards do not have anything that would make them wear out quicker than a traditional wired keyboard. A common consideration when it comes to a wireless keyboard’s longevity is the battery drain and life. Keyboards that have a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes 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. Bear in mind that with these keyboards, you need to ensure that you have a steady stream of batteries available all the time.
