The keyboard is the item we used the most to input any type of information into our tablets and computers, next to the mouse. Selecting a proper computer keyboard will depend on your style, your budget, and your needs.
Getting the absolute perfect keyboard isn’t hard if you keep these points in mind.
The first thing you need to decide is whether you want a wired keyboard or a wireless keyboard. The best part about a wired keyboard is that you’ll never need to put any batteries. Wired keyboards get their energy directly from the computer.
However wired keyboards aren’t the best for everything. They’re great for a PC… and pretty much nothing else. Most tablets don’t even have a USB port where you can stick a keyboard. You can’t use it for your smart TV and using it on the go is cumbersome. Wired keyboards limit your space.
Wireless keyboards, however, are the answer to a wireless future. Ever wondered why the new iPhone and many other new phones don’t have a headphone jack? That’s because everyone hates wires. Fewer wires mean more freedom for the user.
If you decide to go with a wireless keyboard you’ll need to decide if you want a USB wireless keyboard or one that’s connected via Bluetooth. You also need to take a look at the battery in it. Is it included and rechargeable or do you have to replace it all the time? Older wireless keyboards used USB sticks and replaceable batteries. That brought the problem of losing the USB stick or getting stranded without a battery.
Now, however, with everything being equipped with Bluetooth and batteries getting smaller and more reliable, it’s easy to get a rechargeable keyboard that already has everything you need.
If you’re very much into gaming you may look into gaming keyboards. These keyboards are like regular keyboards on steroids. Besides being equipped with everything a regular keyboard has, they are usually equipped with illuminated lights for nighttime playing, palm rests, multimedia keys and more. They also have mechanical keys which allow for a better feel and faster response.
Most gaming keyboards tend to be wired, which doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Gamers usually have their space set up to stay in one place so getting a wireless keyboard wouldn’t make much sense for a static space.
However, all of these features don’t come cheap. In fact, these keyboards tend to be the most expensive option, often surpassing prices of a hundred dollars, with high-end versions costing hundreds of dollars.
Working at the office isn’t what it used to be. Before office workers got to their office computers and once they were done for the day they simply turned them off and went home.
Nowadays we don’t like to do that as much. We’re more and more connected to a lot of people often use their own personal computers to work. It just makes more sense since for them since they can take it wherever they go.
Before, office users seemed to prefer ergonomic keyboards. These weird-looking things claimed to be better for the user and more comfortable for prolonged use.
Today, offices are changing. People take their computers all over the office and outside of it. Shared workspaces are becoming more and more popular. Even coffee shops are doubling as personal offices for lots of people!
It’s no surprise then that more and more people are deciding to go with slimmer and portable keyboard options that fit the new office life. Which is similar to the next point.
With the age of the internet, we’re becoming more active. People can work anywhere and we’re seeing more and more people combining traveling and work. Tablets are also becoming more powerful and it’s not uncommon to find some tablets with the same specs as some laptops.
If you’re on the move all the time you can’t carry a big, wired keyboard around that’s bigger than your tablet. Even if you can find one, imagine a Bluetooth keyboard connected to your tablet at Starbucks. It’s just not what the time needs.
