Best wireless keyboards: Hand-tested reviews of Bluetooth and USB models

The best wireless keyboards do more than free you from a cable. They let you toss the crummy keyboard you got for free with your PC—does anyone like that one?—and they also give you options. The models we’ve reviewed range from full-size desktop slabs to portable models that skip easily from laptop to tablet to phone. Whatever you need to type with, there’s a keyboard for it.

Keyboard choice can be very subjective. That said, we’ve based our reviews on hours spent with each model, banging away on work projects or surfing the web and keeping up on social media. 

This is one category where it really pays to head to a store and try out a model you’re interested in. When we had our stack of keyboards in for review, people couldn’t help but touch and play with them. They all came with different needs and biases. There’s truly no one size to fit all, but our reviews aim to give you enough specifics to make a sound decision. Check out our buying advice at the end to help you choose from other models you find. 

This wireless keyboard roundup was updated May 18, 2018 to add our review of the Logitech MK540 Advanced Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo. We’ve seen a lot of keyboards, but this one is worth every penny ($60 on Amazon). It serves up a roomy keyboard complete with dedicated media buttons, programmable keys, and tactile typing, and the mouse is great, too. Read our full review 

Best overall wireless desktop keyboard: Microsoft Modern Keyboard 

Microsoft’s sleek, elegant Modern Keyboard looks as good as its feels, with pleasingly clickable keys, a bevy of dedicated Windows keys and an ace up its sleeve: a built-in fingerprint reader. Our only gripes about this rechargeable, Bluetooth-enabled keypad are its lack of programmable keys and its lofty price tag.

[$129.95 MSRP; available from Amazon]

Best budget wireless keyboard: Logitech MK540 Advanced Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo

Dedicated typists looking for a premium, snappy keyboard without going the mechanical way should give the wireless MK540 Advanced combo a serious look. For a very reasonable price you get a roomy keyboard with dedicated media buttons, programmable keys, and tactile typing. The mouse is no slouch, either

[$59.99 MSRP; available through Amazon.]
