All right, it's time to eliminate the clutter of cables that plague your desk. Where should one start? By replacing this dirty old wired keyboard with a brand new wireless keyboard.
Wireless keyboards have been around for a while, but if your last experience (ten years ago) was bad, you should opt for a modern keyboard wireless keyboard for a twist. More reliable and affordable than ever, they are available in a variety of styles, just like old wired keyboards. Some wireless keyboards are designed specifically for tablets and phones, but we focus on wireless keyboards for your desktop computer.
Wireless keyboards are usually wireless and come with a USB dongle. But some are Bluetooth enabled. This is handy if your computer is Bluetooth enabled. If you've ever used a wireless mouse, the experience is pretty much the same. Like wireless mice, wireless keyboards are battery-powered and need to be recharged every few months (or a new AA battery).
You would think it would be easy to find a good wireless keyboard case. There are a lot of wireless keyboards on the market, all geared towards different computer users. If you're looking for a reliable wireless budget keyboard, it's hard to bother with the clutter of gaming keyboards and premium mesh keyboards. If you are a player, finding a balance between affordability and ease of use can be difficult.
Fortunately, we took the time to find and describe the best wireless keyboards for all needs.
CORSAIR K63 Mechanical Keyboard ($ 90)
Players and writers love the clicking sound of a good mechanical keyboard, but it's not just about the sound. A good, modern mechanical keyboard needs to set many benchmarks before it can be universally recognized. And since we're looking for wireless keyboards, hunting is even more difficult.
But the CORSAIR K63 wireless mechanical keyboard somehow manages to reach all these benchmarks in style. It's a backlit programmable keyboard with authentic Cherry MX Red switches and an RF USB dongle. Unlike many wireless mechanical keyboards, the key caps on the K63 can be interchanged so you can bury the black design at any time. You can also connect a wired mouse or a gaming headset through the K63, so you do not have to replace your other devices with wireless devices.
The customization features of the K63 are robust and you can save multiple keyboard layouts and color schemes to quickly save them circuits. The K63 also provides synchronization of lighting with other CORSAIR products, so you can customize your keyboard to match your desk lighting. But do not be crazy with these lights, because the rechargeable battery of the K63 lasts only 15 hours.
Of course, this keyboard is not for everyone. Most people are unfamiliar with mechanical keyboards, and the clicks they create could anger your family or roommates. Not to mention, mechanical keyboards like the K63 are pretty big and their backlighting is not for everyone.
Logitech K780 Wireless Keyboard ($ 60)
If you're looking for a premium-formatted wireless keyboard with slim form factor, you do not have to look much further than that the Logitech K780. The K780 is a wireless mesh keyboard that connects to multiple devices at the touch of a button. Pair it with a Logitech Flow mouse and you can use multiple tablets or computers in your workspace.
The K780 comes with an RF USB dongle, but it can also be used with Bluetooth. It is a full size keyboard with a number pad, volume control and a crumbly case. It also has two-year AAA battery life and durable keys, so you do not have to spend a lot of time on maintenance. The white spot at the end of the K780 is a small stand for your phone or tablet, so you can quickly look down from your desktop monitor to send e-mails or play Dorky games.
This is a great little keyboard for multi-device workspaces, but it's not for everyone. Players may want a keyboard that offers more robust customization features, and users who work with one-device setup could get a cheaper wireless keyboard without losing operability.
UtechSmart Mechanical Keyboard ($ 50)
If you want to use a wireless mechanical keyboard without damaging the bank, you should check the UtechSmart wireless mechanical keyboard , It's not as tough as the CORSAIR K63, but it's a solid keyboard that's worth it. It's equipped with MX Blue switches that provide a classic (and rather loud) mechanical click on the keyboard. The built-in red backlight provides adjustable brightness, but no further adjustments.
The UtechSmart wireless keyboard has a battery life of 40 hours, but its batteries can be charged via a USB cable. It works via an RF USB dongle, but it lacks a Bluetooth connection.
This is a great wireless mechanical keyboard for someone who wants to save some money, or for someone just plunging their toes into the world of mechanical keyboards. While it may not have the customizable features of a world-class wireless mechanical keyboard, it's a solid device you'll love.
Logitech K400 Touchpad Keyboard ($ 25)
Now we come into the budget. You do not have to break the bank to get a good wireless keyboard. If you want proof, have a look at the Logitech K400. It's a good-looking touch-sensitive keyboard with volume controls, a clear layout, an 18-month AA battery and an integrated touchpad (at the expense of a numeric keypad). It works via a RF USB dongle and is not Bluetooth compatible. This is a great keyboard for a very simple desktop setup or for a laptop connected to your TV throughout the room. If you have the idea of pairing a combination keyboard / touchpad / media control system with your TV and want advanced controls and Bluetooth, check out the K400's newer and more expensive K400 (K600).
Of course, this keyboard is better for laptop users than for desktop users. The integrated touchpad is a great way to spend money on a mouse, but most of the desktop users like a mouse on their setup

Sometimes less is more. A bare-bones keyboard can definitely get you through a workday or a game session. The Arteck 2.4G is a neat, slim, wireless keyboard with a familiar layout and 6-month battery. The Arteck 2.4G does not have Bluetooth capabilities and works via an RF USB dongle.
