FAQs

Top Pick BannerArtboard 1 3

1. Logitech MX Keys

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • Super satisfying spherical keys that match the tips of your fingers
  • Support for multiple devices across both Windows and Mac
  • A full charge can last up to 5 months

Reasons to Avoid:

  • Back-lighting must be disabled to experience maximum battery perks

The MX Keys focuses on its most notable strength in its name as the typing experience on this keyboard is second to none! Logitech claims that this keyboard has been crafted with ‘efficiency, stability and precision’ in mind, and we simply have to agree with them. 

The feel of the keys under your fingers is fantastic and this allows for a truly satisfying experience. The feedback from each and every key is just what you would expect and this is immensely gratifying. 

If there was to be one downside to the MX Keys it would be that its excellent battery life is drastically cut short by having the back-lighting technology enabled. 5 months quickly turns into 10 hours, which is a sizable drop. That said, the back-light technology boasts hand proximity detection which is pretty neat.

2. Logitech G613

4.6 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • Blazing fast 1 millisecond response time
  • Additional programmable macro keys offer functionality boost

Reasons to Avoid:

  • No illuminated keys, back-lighting missing on this model

It should not go without notice that Logitech’s G613 achieves what many wireless keyboards cannot – being both Bluetooth-enabled and boasting a seriously fast 1 millisecond response time. This equates to almost no input lag whatsoever and makes a massive difference to those of us working from home whose job role requires this level of typing accuracy and efficiency.

The G613’s mechanical keys and additional suite of programmable keys to the left hand side will be a welcome boost for many, though not necessarily all that useful for the conventional office worker now working from home. 

A battery life of 18-months is absolutely unrivalled! However, this is clearly down to the keyboard’s major flaw – its lack of back-lighting. If you’re going to be using it in a dark room, then this one is a no-no! 

3. Logitech K380

4.3 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • You simply cannot beat the price
  • Stylish design with round, spherical keys
  • Outstanding 2-year battery life

Reasons to Avoid:

  • Intense typing sees keyboard drop key presses
  • Occasionally glitchy software

Logitech’s third entry in our rundown is our best budget pick – and for good reason too. This keyboard packs a whole load of premium features at a fraction of the price. 

We really like the style of the K380, it looks great and the typing experience isn’t hindered by its dazzling looks. The keys are relatively responsive – but can miss the odd key press if you’re typing too fast – and spherical, ergonomically moulding to your fingertips.

The outstanding battery life makes this keyboard a real winner – particularly for those of you who want something you can rely on while on the go. Universal support for not only Windows and Mac, but also a host of devices including Apple’s iPad, make this even more of a bargain buy. That said, the automatic key mapping when switching devices can be a little glitchy from time to time.

4. Keychron K2

4.2 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • 84-key design makes for a compact, clutter-free experience
  • Connects to up to three Bluetooth devices and switches seamlessly
  • Can also connect wirelessly over USB-C

Reasons to Avoid:

  • Rather noisy mechanical keys
  • Back-lighting could prove a bit colorful and distracting for some

Keychon’s K2 is a decent little keyboard that boasts a compact design that will prove attractive to many of you looking to declutter your desk set-up somewhat. Handy additional features also include the ability to connect to up to three Bluetooth devices simultaneously, as well as the option to connect wirelessly over USB-C if you’re worried about input lag.

That said, be wary of the K2’s noisy mechanical keys. If you’re prone to thumping your keyboard when furiously typing away whilst working from home, then you may want to consider those around you – particularly if you share a home office space! Another distraction comes in the form of the K2’s rather obnoxious back-lighting which could prove a bit colorful for some of you.

5. Corsair K63

4.1 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • Ultra-fast 1 millisecond response time
  • Excellent blue LED back-lighting
  • Compact and portable design with comfortable wrist rest

Reasons to Avoid:

  • Short battery life of only 15 hours
  • Connection can be a little temperamental

Corsair is a very well respected brand within the gaming community. However, how does it stand up to our home working tests? Well, the ultra-fast 1 millisecond response time means you can bash away at this keyboard for hours and feel confident that every keystroke is going to be met. Plus, the K63’s compact and portable design make it ideal for remote workers who are often found on the go. A comfortable wrist rest is also a nice bonus to have.

That said, due to the excellent LED back-lighting (seriously, it looks awesome), Corsair’s keyboard can only last for up to 15 hours, which is seriously short compared to the other wireless competitors we’ve reviewed. Think about it, that’s just two full working days. Think carefully about this one! It’s still an excellent keyboard, though.

6. Microsoft QSZ-00001

4.0 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • Slim, sleek and modern design that looks great on your desk
  • An excellent and affordable price tag
  • Awesome 2-year long battery life

Reasons to Avoid:

  • Designed solely with Windows in mind
  • No print screen button

Microsoft’s only entry on our list is a good all-rounder. However, the lack of a print screen button on the QSZ-00001 left us truly befuddled!

Nevertheless, this keyboard boasts a sleek and elegant design that we really loved – it looks perfect on almost every desk we tried it out with. That, coupled with an excellent 2-year long battery life and an attractive, affordable price tag had us swooning. However, if you’re a Mac user, you’re almost certainly out of luck and should look elsewhere, as this wireless keyboard has been designed primarily for Windows users.

7. Dell KM636

3.9 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • Elegant, contemporary design
  • Super satisfying chiclet keys
  • Compact design – and includes a mouse

Reasons to Avoid:

  • Lacks Bluetooth capabilities
  • Battery life relatively poor

Dell is known more for its PCs than its peripherals, but this contemporary design caught our eye and earned it a spot on this list. The big bonus of the KM636 is that it comes bundled with a mouse, meaning you’ve one less wireless device to worry about purchasing.

The two work well together and we particularly enjoyed the keyboard super satisfying chiclet keys. However, we do wish that Dell had added Bluetooth to its design as it is frustrating having to give up USBs ports for a wireless receiver. Battery life is okay but not the best on this one.

8. Lenovo 510

3.8 out of 5.0 stars

*Based On Our Reviewing Criteria

Reasons to Buy:

  • Keyboard and mouse combo for affordable price
  • No installation required – just plug and play
  • Easy to use, ergonomic design

Reasons to Avoid:

  • Requires a wireless receiver, albeit nano in size
  • Build quality feels a little cheap

Lenovo’s 510 is a good keyboard and mouse combination at an attractive and affordable price tag. The products do feel a little on the cheap side in terms of build quality but, aesthetically, they will look nice spread across most desktops.

The ergonomic design and great usability offered by this package really stood out to us. Plus, there is no installation or set-up required, simply plug in and play – result!

Hopefully our comprehensive overview of some of the best wireless keyboards on the market in 2021 will help you make the right selection for your specific needs. Remember to consider size, keys, adjustability, battery life, and price in your decision making process and you won’t go wrong!
