Okay, it's time to clean up the pipes that plague your desk. Where to start? By replacing the smart old wireless keyboard for a brand new wireless keyboard.
Wireless keyboards have been around for a long time, but if your recent experience was bad (ten years ago), we encourage you to take a modern wireless keyboard for a spin. They are more reliable and affordable than they used to be, and they come in different styles, just like old-fashioned cable keyboards. Some wireless keyboards are made especially for tablets and phones, but we focus on wireless keyboards for your desktop computer.
Usually, wireless keyboards use a radio frequency and come packed with a USB dongle. But some are Bluetooth enabled, which is nice if your computer is Bluetooth ready. If you've ever used a wireless mouse, the experience is pretty much the same. Like wireless mice, wireless keyboards are battery powered and require a charge (or new AA battery) a few months.
You'd think it was easy to find a good wireless keyboard, but that's not exactly the case. There are lots of wireless keyboards on the market, and they are all aimed at different computer users. If you try to find a reliable wireless keyboard for wireless networking, it can be difficult to shop through the rats of the gaming keys and premium keyboards. If you are a player, it can be difficult to find a balance between affordability and usability.
Happy to you, we have taken the time to find and describe the best wireless keyboards for every need.
CORSAIR K63 Mechanical Keyboard ($ 90)
Players and writers love a slim keyboard, but it's not just about sound. A good modern mechanical keyboard must hit many benchmarks before it can be universally appreciated. And because we are looking for wireless keyboards, hunting is even more difficult.
But the CORSAIR K63 wireless mechanical keyboard can somehow meet all these benchmarks in style. It is a programmable backlit keyboard with authentic Cherry MX Red switches and an RF USB dongle. Unlike many wireless mechanical keyboards, the K63's key card can be replaced, so you can dig the black design as you please. You can also plug in a wired mouse or game head via the K63, so you do not need to replace your other wireless device.
K63's customization features are robust and you can store multiple key maps and color scheme for quick switch-outs. The K63 s also offers lighting synchronization with other CORSAIR products, allowing you to match your keyboard with the lights on the desktop. But don't go crazy with these lights, because the K63's rechargeable battery only lasts 15 hours.
Of course, this keyboard is not for everyone. Most people are not familiar with mechanical keyboards, and the click sound they produce can confuse your family or roommate. Logitech K780 Wireless Keyboard ($ 60)
If you do not want to call, you can use keyboards like K63. Looking for a wireless wireless keyboard with a narrow form factor, you don't have to look beyond the Logitech K780. The K780 is a wireless networking keyboard that can connect and switch to multiple devices at the touch of a button. Connect it with a Logitech Flow mouse and you're ready to 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-sized keyboard with a license plate, volume control buttons and a dirt-free building. It also has a two-year AAA battery life and durable keys, so you don't have to spend much time on maintenance. The white piece at the end of the K780 is a small kickstand for your phone or tablet, so you can quickly look down from your desktop screen to send emails or play tricky games on the fly.
This is an excellent small keyboard for multi-unit work surfaces, but it's not for everyone. Players may want a keyboard that offers more robust customization features, and people working with a device installation can get a cheaper wireless keyboard without losing their usability.
UtechSmart Mechanical Keyboard ($ 50)
If you want to take a wireless mechanical keyboard without breaking the bank, you should check out the wireless mechanical keyboard UtechSmart. It's not as robust as the CORSAIR K63, but it's a solid keyboard that is worth your time. It is equipped with MX Blue switches, which offer a classic (and quite high) mechanical keyboard click. It has built-in red backlight, which has adjustable brightness but no other adjustments available.
The UtechSmart wireless keyboard has a 40-hour battery life, but its batteries can be charged via USB cable. It works over an RF USB dongle, but lacks Bluetooth connectivity.
This is an excellent wireless mechanical keyboard for anyone who wants to save some money, or for someone who just baptizes their toes in the world of mechanical keyboards.
Logitech K400 Touchpad Keyboard ($ 25)
Now you can't have the customizable features of a wireless mechanical keyboard, but it's a solid device that you will love. we enter the budget area. You do not have to break the bank to get a good wireless keyboard. If you want a proof, take a look at the Logitech K400. It is a neat membrane keyboard with volume control, a simple layout, an 18-month battery life and an integrated touchpad (at the expense of a dial pad). It works over an RF USB dongle and is not Bluetooth compatible. This is a great keyboard for a very basic desktop installation, or for a laptop connected across the room to your TV. If you are fascinated by the idea of combining a combination keyboard / touchpad / media control system with your TV and want more advanced controls and Bluetooth, you may want to check out the K400's newer and more precious ($ 60) cousin K600.  Of course, this keyboard is better for portable users than for desktop users. While the integrated touchpad is a great way to save money on a mouse, most desktop users prefer to have a mouse in their settings.

Sometimes less is more. A keyboard with scarce legs can definitely take you through a working day or a gaming experience. Arteck 2.4G is a neat, slim wireless keyboard with a familiar layout and a 6 month rechargeable battery. The Arteck 2.4G does not have Bluetooth capabilities, and it works over an RF USB dongle.
