If you are looking to improve your productivity level and put a stop to the pain and stress that you feel when typing, trade in your old keyboard for one of these QWERTY computer keyboards as these are considered some of the best available on the market today.
Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave Pro
This package actually includes both the keyboard and a laser mouse and is by far one of the best available on today’s market. The design has been made to promote comfort and ease of use for the semi-heavy typist. The keyboard is powered by two AA batteries that can be turned off at any time in order to save the battery life of the keyboard. The ergonomic design of the Wave Pro can really decrease the amount of pain and stress that you normally feel on your hands and wrist when typing for extended periods of time. The mouse is completely rechargeable. Both the mouse and the keyboard run off of the same USB drive.
I recommend this Logitech keyboard and mouse package for any home user as well as for office use.
Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard
This one is for the devoted gamer. If you are one of those fanatics that play WoW and other related games online all the time, then you need a Logitech G19 gaming keyboard. It’s one of the best for gaming entertainment. This keyboard comes equipped with a large color LCD display that can show images and it supports video playback. The keyboard comes with color backlight capable keys, USB ports built-in, and macro capabilities that allow for five different key presses.
The biggest problem with this keyboard is that it has a price tag of around $200; however, for the avid gamer, it’s well worth the price.
Logitech diNovo Keyboard Mac Edition Keyboard
This keyboard has been made specifically for those of you that use a Mac computer and don’t wish to use the keyboard made by Apple. The keyboard has specific keys that have been developed exclusively for Mac shortcuts. The entire keyboard has a very elegant and contemporary finish and has been designed to enhance the typing experience with comfort and relaxation. One-touch access keys for programs such as Mail, iTunes, Safari, and many more.
With a price tag of around $50 at the Amazon.com Marketplace, it’s great for a Mac user, but don’t expect to find illuminated keys with this one!
Microsoft Sidewinder X6 Keyboard
This Microsoft SideWinder X6 Keyboard is probably the best value for your money and is highly ideal for those avid gamers but can be suitable for others as well. The Sidewinder X6 has thirty customizable programmable keys allowing up to 90 macros to be customized and programmed and the keyboard comes equipped with a switchable keypad, which means you can place the keypad on the left side or the right side of your keyboard via magnetic contact.
The backlighting allows for two different colors: one for keyboard keys (red) and the second for the macro and keypad keys in game mode (amber). A lighting dial provides the ability to adjust the brightness of the keypad and keyboard. You can also manually switch between two game modes and the standard mode and you’ll have easy access to media keys such as Play, Pause, etc.
Symcod’s SKM Silicone Keyboard
Do you work in an industrial environment that requires the use of a keyboard but the area is dirty, dusty, or bacteria-prone? If so, this keyboard is ideal for those situations. Whether you work in a factory, in construction, or in a hospital, this silicone keyboard is the wisest choice as it is easy to clean and is completely washable.
The actual feeling of this keyboard is very similar to that of a standard QWERTY keyboard but this one is spill resistant! This keyboard does not require a special driver as it hooks directly up as any other keyboard would. It has 102-keys and the QWERTY layout design, or you can even opt for the AZERTY layout design if you wish when purchasing.
If reliability and cleanliness are a major concern in your area of work then this keyboard is the perfect choice for you. It may be a little pricy at around $160, but seeing as how it is washable and resistant to many things such as spills and dust, it’s worth it.
Best Keyboards by Brands
I’d say Logitech wins hands down with Microsoft coming in at a close second. Both develop great keyboards that work well and have some superior functions. Definitely get rid of your stock keyboard and upgrade to a newly designed keyboard that will enhance your comfort and produce maximum efficiency and productivity.
