With extended battery life, the ability to quickly recharge, and a long list of benefits that include ease of use, padded palm rests, and ergonomic designs that will decrease hand fatigue, wireless keyboards have become the standard in both personal and professional computer use. Whether you use a laptop and are looking for a portable and ergonomic full-sized keyboard or need a keyboard for your computer that has added benefits not found in traditional wired keyboards often packaged with computers, we’ve got options for you. If you’re ready to break free from your wired keyboard, it’s time to make the switch to wireless.
Those who travel will love using a wireless keyboard, with the ability to set up their office on the go and still use a full-sized keyboard. Use your tablet or laptop as a monitor and give your hands a break from typing on a small and cramped keyboard by packing your wireless keyboard either in your suitcase or carry-on.
We also love wireless keyboards for the office, with the ability to easily take your wireless keyboard to different desks and conference rooms for presentations. Keyboards are germ magnets, so make sure you’re using one that only has your germs on it.
Which wireless keyboard is right for you? Check out our top picks below and find out.
1. Logitech MK270 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo
Keeping with a traditional design and feel, the Logitech MK270 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo runs on AA batteries with up to two years of power for the keyboard and one year for the mouse. The keyboard features whisper-quiet keys and eight programmable shortcut keys. The MK270 is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, but if you’re using Windows 10, we recommend the K800.
2. Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard
With illuminating keys that are both useful and visually appealing, the Logitech K800 is a sleek keyboard that features the quiet Logitech PerfectStroke Key System and a padded palm for an ergonomic fit. It’s got a powerful 2.4 GHz wireless connection that you can depend on thanks to its powerful pairing with the tiny receiver for your computer that stabilizes a consistent connection. Designed to work with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10, the K800’s standout feature is its rechargeable universal micro-USB cable, which means there’s no need for batteries. Three to six hours of charging can last up to 10 days depending on use. And even better, the keyboard can be used while charging.
3. Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard
Featuring a curved layout for a more natural hand position, the Logitech K350 comes with everything users will need to surf the web and get to work, including a padded palm rest and wireless mouse. Like the MK270, this option runs on batteries and is ideal for anyone who doesn’t want to remember to continually charge their keyboard. Logitech advertises the battery life of the K350 as being up to three years, but we’ve been using our K350 every day for more than three years and have yet to replace the batteries in either the keyboard or mouse. The K350 also has customizable F-keys that can open apps and browsers and like the MK270 and K800, it has a strong 2.4GHz signal connectivity that can easily reach a nearby laptop or tower.
