Computer Keyboards


With so many computer keyboards on the market, deciding which one is best for you can be daunting. However, before you start thinking about brands, it can be worth considering your needs. The tasks you are trying to complete, and even the environment you’re working in, can have an enormous impact on the type of PC keyboard you buy.



The most obvious difference between wired and wireless computer keyboards is that the wired versions are connected directly to your PC, courtesy of a cable. As one is plugged into the other, there’s virtually no chance of communication between keyboard and PC being disrupted by signals from other sources. While this is a rarity for their wireless counterparts, it is a possibility. Similarly, that physical connection ensures minimal input lag between the keyboard and the graphics processing unit. In layman’s terms, this means that the PC will respond quicker, particularly where graphics are concerned, making wired computer keyboards the best choice for gamers and graphic designers.



By comparison, wireless PC keyboards offer convenience. Easy to tuck away, they can be stored at a moment’s notice, and they give the user freedom of movement. The connective signal between keyboard and PC is typically good for around 30 feet, allowing you to work from wherever is most comfortable. While they’re a superb choice for those who work from home, they’re also ideal for offices in which space is something of a premium. The only real drawback is that you need to keep an eye on the battery life unless you’re working close to the power socket and can keep it plugged in.



While there are models that are dishwasher-friendly, a washable computer keyboard tends to be able to stand up to brief immersion in water and the regular use of spray cleaners. For most of us, a little dirt or dust on or between the keys isn’t a problem. However, there are environments where absolute cleanliness is a must, such as medical facilities or offices in which virus control is a priority.
