Wireless, Bluetooth and corded keyboards

Find great deals on keyboards from Logitech, Microsoft, HP and Samsung.

We use keyboards day-in, day-out, so it makes sense to get hold of models that combine reliability, durability and comfort. Our range of computer keyboards for business, consumer and gaming usage come in four main types:

Wireless computer keyboards

Wireless keyboards use a USB receiver plugged into the host device, often being frequently bundled with a wireless mouse – both peripherals will usually transmit at 2.4GHz. When part of a bundle, usually both the keyboard and mouse will use the same USB dongle, and each unit will use two AA-sized batteries. We advise using re-chargeable batteries to offset the cost of replacing normal alkaline batteries.

Some variations of wireless keyboard also have built in track pads, and are known as All-in-One Media Keyboards. Usually spill resistant, standard keyboards have 105 keys and may include additional features such as programmable buttons and backlit keys. Some units forego the traditional QWERTY keyboard form factor, instead offering a split layout that keeps wrists and forearms in a relaxed position.

Bluetooth computer keyboards

Bluetooth keyboards now offer the ability to switch between multiple devices - for example PC, tablet or smartphone (providing each have Bluetooth enabled). One of the best examples is the Logitech K480e which, as well as being stylish in design, has an Easy-Switch dial to change between typing on three connected Bluetooth wireless devices.

Other Bluetooth keyboards such as Logitech's K810 are not only Windows-compatible, but are designed to work with Android and iOS. Again, most devices of this type use two AA batteries for power.

Corded USB computer keyboards

Unlike wireless or Bluetooth keyboards, wired models draw their power from a USB connection. Not only does this eliminate the need to recharge or replace batteries, but for gaming use they offer the advantage of being completely free from any potential lag or wireless interference issues.

Lower in price than their wireless counterparts, if you opt for a corded keyboard we recommend units with mechanical key switches (which offer better durability and feel than other types - see below).

Corded PS/2 keyboards

Using the familiar colour-code 6-pin mini-DIN connectors common to older desktop machines (purple for keyboards, green for mice) corded keyboards of this type have largely been superseded by USB variants.

Some enthusiasts do argue that PS/2 keyboards still carry several advantages over their USB equivalents such as slightly decreased lag versus USB, despite conforming to a standard from 1987. Aside from this, however, the only other obvious advantage is in buying a cheap PS/2 unit with mechanical switching (as opposed to USB with inferior rubber dome, or scissor switches).

Keyboard type feel and durability - Mechanical, rubber dome or scissor switches

Personal preference aside, key depression feel and the lifespan of a keyboard is also partly dependent upon the mechanism and material used to record keystrokes. There are lots of different types available, including membrane, dome-switch, scissor-switch, mechanical, capacitive, buckling spring, laser and magnetic keyboards.

In general, dome, membrane and scissor switches are cheaper but perhaps less durable, and capacitive, spring and magnetic keyboards can afford faster typing speeds and durability. Laser keyboards are a relatively new invention, and can be tricky to use, given the keys are formed entirely out of light and movement of the laser can result in unwanted keystrokes.

Although the technical specifications for most products do not state the mechanism type, many online forums (especially those related to gaming) do discuss the issue.
