Keyboards are essential elements of our office and gaming spaces, and without them, we cannot function properly. Every day manufacturers are developing and delivering excellent keyboards, and in recent years we’ve seen the rise of wireless keyboards which are pretty much lifesavers.
Logitech G915 Wireless Gaming Keyboard
The definite best wireless keyboard for this year is the Logitech G915, also dubbed the “Light speed.” It has dedicated media keys, superb software, fantastic design, and key switches. Key switches are incredibly responsive and smooth. Logitech G915 is a gorgeous device and justifies its price right from the start. This keyboard is one of the thinnest measuring only 22 millimeters in height.
The key caps on the device feature a floating design and a pretty low profile. The double-shot modules make the keys extremely durable as the keyboard is itself. This keyboard also features five macro keys on the left-hand side, discrete media keys, and control buttons for Bluetooth, profiles, light-speed connection, game mode, and RGB.
You can modify everything about this keyboard from the macro keys to individual profiles to lighting from the Logitech G-Hub software. Logitech G915 has some special set of keys that are not present in any other keyboard in the Logitech GL line. The GL key switches are pretty similar to the Cherry MX line and come in three variants, GL tactile, GL linear, and GL Clicky.
The GL tactile works like the Cherry MX browns delivering an excellent tactile experience, and the GL linear is perfect for gaming and is pretty similar to the Cherry MX Reds in performance. As for the GL Clicky switches, they’re pretty similar to Cherry MX blues, and they’re typewriter feel.
This keyboard is very expensive.
Corsair is one of the best gaming peripheral manufacturers in the market, and the company has always delivered the best keyboards. Corsair k63 is one of the best wireless keyboards in their lineup. It is also very feature-rich while still keeping a competitive price. The compact design makes it super convenient for couch gaming.
This keyboard is packed with cherry MX key switches for ultimate performance. Cherry MX Red key switches they work excellently and deliver an excellent key travel, silent operation, and fast action, which makes it perfect for gaming. Corsair k63 wireless keyboard has a pretty minimal and kind of futuristic look to it. Aesthetically it is very pleasing thanks to its clean frameless design.
The battery life of the Corsair k63 is about 15 hours with the lights on and about 75 hours if you turn them off, and the overall charging time it’s also pretty short. You can choose between a red LED or RGB lighting. It has dedicated volume and media controls, which makes it easier to adjust the volume during gaming. The keys are 100% anti-ghosting with full key rollover, and the keystrokes are always registered no matter how fast your in-game actions are.
The palm rest is a bit flimsy and made of rigid plastic and thin textured rubber.
Obinslab Anne 2 Pro
The Obinslab Anne 2 pro has some great similarities to its predecessor. For me, it’s the best compact keyboard in the market. This keyboard has Bluetooth connectivity, RGB lighting, and a great selection of keys. It has super slim borders and high-profile design with hidden key switches. The keyboard has some incline to it, but there are no flip-up feet to increase the incline.

One of the most popular and comfortable wireless keyboards in the market is the Logitech MK550, or as it’s more popularly known as ‘The Wave.’ This keyboard has been in production for a long time now and is still one of the most notable models. It is super comfortable and ergonomic, making the job of every writer super attractive. This keyboard comes in a bundle with a wireless laser mouse M510.
The Logitech MK 550 is one of the biggest keyboards I’ve ever seen, measuring 19 x 10 x 1.5 inches, covering plenty of desk space and weighing two pounds three ounces. Under the keyboard, you’ll spot two feet to set the keyboard at an angle, and it raises the total height to 2.5 inches. It has a padded palm rest for comfort that’s slightly curved and also makes a wave shape as the keyboard.
The wave design is made to deliver support to the fingers, and it dips near the ASDF and JKL keys. There are plenty of dedicated media keys and hotkeys in this keyboard that are specifically designed for Windows systems but can be reprogrammed to suit your needs. The connectivity is made by a wireless 2.4 gigahertz USB dongle, which connects both the keyboard and the mouse. If you’re a longtime writer that wants comfort more than anything else, then the Logitech MK 550 is perfect for you.
The keys are loud and felt a bit cheaper. The mouse is designed for right-hand users.
Apple Magic Keyboard
The Apple magic keyboard has been one the best wireless keyboards in the market, especially for Mac users. This keyboard pairs automatically with your Mac, and it can also work in wired mode. It is also compatible with Windows PCs. It has a quiet operation, and it looks excellent on the desk with its rechargeable battery that lasts a long time.
The Apple Magic keyboard is pretty small, compact, and very easy to carry along. It measures only 0.43 x 10.99 x 4.52 inches in total and weighs just 8 ounces. This isn’t a full-sized keyboard, and it lacks the directional Keys, number pad, and function keys. The top part of the keyboard is made of matte aluminum, which will fit right in with your other Apple devices such as the iMac and the MacBook.
The bottom is made out of plastic, and it has feet to keep it from sliding around. The biggest advancement of the Apple magic keyboard is that it has eliminated the need for AA or AAA batteries; instead, it has opted for an internal battery. You recharge the device from the Lightning port located in the front, which is also used for wide mode.
The connection is made through the Bluetooth 4.0 connection. In terms of design and ergonomics, the design is very minimalistic, but the keyboard isn’t very ergonomic. However, it is very pleasing to use, and scissor keys are super quiet and very satisfying to press as compared to most of the keyboards in the market. It has a full-size variant also that you can use.
Not very good for gaming.
