Get Cableless Typing With a Wireless Keyboard

Picking up a wireless computer keyboard or wireless keypad can seem like a daunting task. There are so many options available, and it's not always clear what the positives and negatives of each might be. But getting the right keyboard from eBay can make a world of difference in your posture, joint health, and comfort – so it's worth taking the time to get it right.

Ergonomic wireless computer keyboards for frequent typists

If you spend all day typing in front of a computer, you're at higher risk for repetitive strain injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome. If you find your hands or wrists getting a little sore or numb by the end of the day, you might find that an ergonomic keyboard will help head off any medical issues before they hit. Ergonomic keyboards are designed to decrease the amount of unnatural movement that your fingers, hands, and wrists make while typing. This limits the amount of muscle and tendon strain, and cuts down on potential injuries.

You'll find that most ergonomic keyboards are curved to allow your hands to sit at a more natural angle. This can cause issues for some – it's handy to learn to touch type so you can limit the amount of movement required for each keystroke.

Mechanical wireless keyboards for customised feedback

A lot of frequent computer users love mechanical keyboards. So how do they differ from regular keyboards? The simple answer is, in what's underneath the keys. Standard keyboards have a membrane underneath that registers each keystroke. Mechanical keyboards, on the other hand, have individual switches for each key. These provide more feedback for the typist to feel or hear that they've pressed a key.

You'll find that mechanical keyboards on eBay typically offer three types of key switch: linear (or Red), tactile (or Brown), and click (or Blue). The difference is in the feedback at the point where a keypress is registered – linear provides none until you hit the bottom of the keypress, tactile gives a bounce-back feeling, and click gives an audible click. People who need to type fast, like click keyboards often need to type a lot like tactile keyboards. Check out the range online today and decide on the right keyboard for your typing style.
