With so many keyboards available, how do you go about choosing the right one? Start by deciding whether you’d prefer a wired or wireless keyboard. By eliminating cables, wireless keyboards help keep your desk tidier and since you’re not physically tied to your computer you have the flexibility to work further away (most wireless keyboards have a working range of up to 10 metres). On the downside, you’ll have to keep investing in batteries to power your keyboard.
Other types of keyboards include ergonomic keyboards, multimedia keyboards and gaming keyboards. Ergonomic keyboards are specially designed to reduce the strain on hands and wrists caused by prolonged typing and are ideal for heavy duty users. Multimedia keyboards include additional ‘hot keys’ that can be programmed to launch regularly used applications as well as volume controls and keys to control music and video applications. Gaming keyboards are much more customisable to allow complex gaming commands to be programmed. They often include backlight keys for use in low light conditions and typically include a number of audio and other connectivity options.
