If you are fed up with cable clutter on your desk, then a wireless keyboard could be the answer. Wireless keyboards transmit data to your computer through a radio frequency connection, or via Bluetooth. Most wireless keyboards connect using the same 2.4 GHz wireless frequencies used for cordless phones and Wi-Fi, via a small USB dongle which provides the link to your computer. These proprietary connections allow for optimal battery life and can provide connectivity to more than one device.
Bluetooth is becoming more popular lately because they don’t monopolize a USB port and give up to thirty feet of range, but they do not match the battery life offered by Wi-Fi devices with an USB dongle. Below e have listed 3 great wireless keyboards, two are 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi and also come with a wireless mouse as a combo deal, the third is a Bluetooth device – but all are highly recommended:-
