When it comes to gaming peripherals, especially gaming keyboards, there are plenty to choose from. However, if you are kin to get rid of table clutter and want a minimalistic look on your gaming desk, then wireless gaming keyboards are your best answer. Most modern wireless keyboards have stable connections meaning there won't be any lag or latency, thereby upping your gaming experience.
Like regular gaming keyboards, the wireless keyboards now bundle mechanical switches, which are responsive and comfortable. Not to mention that some even pack in a little bit of backlight lighting to amp up the look & feel.
So, if you want to get rid of the cords and cables from your gaming table, here are some of the best wireless gaming keyboards that you must buy. But first,
If you want one of the best experiences in the field of a wireless gaming keyboard, the Logitech G915 TKL makes for a good buy. It's a stylish keyboard and embodies a slim and svelte look. Though it's a compact tenkeyless keyboard, it's cleverly designed for gaming. Above all, the keys are super smooth, making it easy and convenient to glide over the keys when gaming.
And that's not the end of the story. The Logitech G915 TKL also bundles a neat volume control. Like the keys, it's convenient to use, and the ribbed design at the wheel makes it convenient to use, especially while you are engaged in a fight in your game.
When it comes to wireless connectivity, the G915 TKL gives you two options to connect—Bluetooth and a 2.4Ghz wireless dongle. The connectivity is seamless and works beautifully without any signal drops or latency. And well, this has been verified by both professional reviewers as well as users.
The G915 TKL uses GL mechanical switches, and you can choose between three key types—tactile, clicky, or linear, depending on your preference. These are low profile switches, and as mentioned earlier, are absolutely smooth and comfortable to use.
Other than that, you can play with the lighting using the Logitech G Hub software. You can control the lighting over the keys, the Logitech logo, and the RGB button for the record.
Last but not least, you can get around 40 hours of battery life with RGB on, and well, that's quite decent.
Even though it's a premium keyboard, it doesn't have the tenkeyless design means there are no dedicated macro keys.
2. Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard
If you want a full-fledged keyboard, and if the price is not much of a concern, then you can consider the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro. Being a full-fledged keyboard, this one will occupy a far greater space on your desk. The BlackWidow V3 Pro tries to make up for it with its Green switches designed to accept lower actuation force. Plus, the aluminum plate on this keyboard means that you won't feel any flex when you press your palms on it while pursuing your enemies in Call of Duty (see Call of Duty wallpapers).
Like the keyboard above, you can opt between 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth. Furthermore, there's a helpful switch at the side that will let you switch between two connected PCs with ease. The best part is that this switch is on the far side, thereby preventing you from flipping it on accidentally.
You get to choose from three sets of switches, depending on your preference, although the Green ones are loud and tend to be distracting. Overall, they have a similar feel like the Cherry MX switches, although the latter takes more force.
Being a premium keyboard, you get a couple of extras. For one, the volume wheel is a joy to work with. Plus, the RGB lighting is customizable. You can use the keyboard or the Synapse software to do that. The Synapse software comes with the usual bells and whistles like individual key customization and volume key remapping. Thankfully, it is straightforward to use.
Lastly, the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro can last around 192 hours on battery before needing a recharge. The above figure excludes the use of RGB lighting. If you switch it on, the battery life will last anywhere between 10-25 hours, depending on the usage.
If you are looking for a versatile mechanical gaming keyboard, you can't go wrong with the Corsair K63 wireless gaming keyboard. Like its counterpart above, you can use it with a wireless USB receiver or Bluetooth. It has almost all the bells and whistles, such as a dedicated media buttons and backlit lighting. It features a tenkeyless frameless design, meaning it won't occupy much space on your gaming desk.
Though it doesn't have an aluminum plate like some of the wireless gaming keyboards above, the K63 has a rigid feel minus flex.
Again, you get a pretty lag-free connection, especially when it comes to the 2.4GHz connection. However, it comes with a catch. You will have to stay within the direct line of sight of the dongle to get the max out of the wireless connectivity, and this can be an issue, especially if you are considering to game from a distance.
Like Corsair gaming mice, the K63 Wireless keyboard uses the proprietary iCue software for customization purposes, be it remapping the keys or tweaking the profile. The best part is that the software is easy and straightforward to use, and the odds are that you will get the hang of things pretty soon.
The low price of the K63 Wireless means you will let go of some of the frills, and in this case, it's the RGB lighting. Though the keys have individual lighting below, the color is limited to Blue.
Aside from that, the K63 Wireless can last up to 75 hours minus the lighting. Quite obviously, the battery life will take a hit when you blast the lights at full brightness.
Another affordable wireless gaming keyboard is the Redragon K596 Vishnu. This keyboard brings home a slew of attractive features at an affordable price tag. For one, it bundles a stable wireless connection, mechanical switches, RGB lighting, and more importantly, macro keys and a volume wheel. And all these nifty features are combined in a tenkeyless keyboard.
The best part is that the keycaps sport a stylized typeface, which adds to the device's looks.
Apart from the standard Bluetooth connection, you can either opt for the more stable 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, or you can hook a USB-C cable for wired connectivity. The latter comes to the picture of the keyboard runs out of battery.
Redragon has equipped the K596 Vishnu with Outemu Red switches, which is similar to the Cherry MX Red switches. At the same time, these Outemu are designed to protect against dust and moisture.
It's an RGB keyboard and packs a boatload of lighting effects. However, the keyboard offers fewer options to cycle between them. Instead, you can use the companion software to tweak the colors and the effects. Do note that the software works when the keyboard is connected to the computer via a USB wire.
It's not without issues. For example, the option to switch between Bluetooth and 2.4GHz mode is at the bottom of the keyboard and is the easiest switch to operate. Nevertheless, if you do not want to spend a ton and are looking for a reliable and comfortable keyboard for gaming, the Redragon K596 Vishnu makes the cut. The battery life is of 10 hours (with lights).
