Many of us spend most of our day in front of our computer, so the right keyboard is important. This makes it especially important to choose a keyboard with features that tailor to your needs, whether that’s for productivity or ergonomics. There’s a huge market for keyboards designed to suit a variety of uses, whether you’re after a new one for work, school, gaming, or a replacement for that trusty, long-serving companion. We’ve included both wired and wireless keyboards designed to help improve your workflow and comfort and accuracy. If you wanted something lighter and more compact don’t worry we have those too. Check out our thoughts below.
The Logitech MK720r is our most popular keyboard here at PB Tech, it’s responsive, wireless, has dedicated media keys and even three fully programmable keys! It even comes with a mouse, all connected to one USB Dongle so no precious USB slots are wasted.
While there might not be a wrist rest included in this keyboard, it does come with a pair of retractable feet that you can use to set the angle of the keyboard to what feels best for you.
The Logitech K380 is a lightweight, compact keyboard that you can also use with your mobile devices. It’s wireless and has Bluetooth connectivity. This allows you to pair up to three devices. With just the press of a button, you’re able to switch to a different device with ease.
There’s no wrist rest or incline adjustment on this keyboard but it is low-profile. The scissor switches take a bit to get used to because they require a tiny bit more force, this aids in reducing typos.
Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard
The Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard is a large, wired keyboard designed for Windows users, It’s a full-sized keyboard with lots of shortcuts.
Due to the shape, much like most ergonomic keyboards, it will take some time to adjust. The split in the keyboard is very different from your everyday keyboard.
Featuring a built-in fabric-like wrist rest for maximum comfort, as well as three programmable buttons on the top left, this truly is an amazing keyboard once you get accustomed to it.
Logitech MX Keys
The Logitech MX Keys has a compact and premium feel, it’s low-profile design keeps your wrist in a natural posture.
The keycaps have a nice feel to them and the circular indent in the middle of the keys helps naturally guide your fingers for better typing accuracy. They are also illuminated which gives a nice touch when you’re in a darker environment.
It’s sleek, comfortable to use and wireless, but sadly, it doesn’t support macro-programming. So if your looking for a keyboard with macro features this may not be the one for you.
Corsair K95 Platinum
The Corsair K95 Platinum is a full-sized mechanical keyboard that comes with a lot of features such as dedicated media keys, 6 programmable macro keys and a detachable wrist rest.
It uses doubleshot PBT keycaps which gives it a premium feel and makes it less prone to collecting finger oil, so you don’t get that shine over your keycaps. It has fully customisable RGBs for aesthetics or, if that’s too distracting, you can simply turn the RGB off to help you focus on productivity.
The K95 Platinum comes with your choice of Cherry MX switches, giving you the ability to select how tactile it feels or how it sounds. Due to this, it can be quite loud to type on, so if you’re in a shared workspace environment this may not be the keyboard for you.
