Computer Keyboards and Keypads

Available in a variety of styles, all of which are built for different purposes, computer keyboards and keypads range as much in price as they do in functionality. It is vital to get the right keyboard to suit your purpose. There are a number of keyboard types to consider before making your final decision.

Standard keyboards

This is the run of the mill keyboard most people are accustomed to. A black board covered in standard QWERTY keys, they are simple and functional. They do their job and thats it. Standard keyboards are reliable and durable, ideal for most users. Newer versions of standard keyboards often come wireless because their lack of extra features means that battery operation is very feasible. Many people also prefer the lack of cluttering wires.

Mechanical keyboards

A mechanical keyboard is a keyboard built with key switches, normally activated by springs. Whereas standard keyboards usually have small rubber domes inside due to their inexpensive construction, mechanical keyboards provide comfort for the typist due to their ergonomic design and a mechanical interior.

Mechanical keyboards are a good idea for people who spend lots of time typing. They can also come in a variety of colours and are almost always found as gaming keyboards as well.

Mini keyboards

Exactly as they sound, mini keyboards are smaller versions of standard size keyboards. Ideal for places where space is limited or for people who prefer a minimalist approach, mini keyboards shirk off the lesser, more unpopular keys in return for a more nimble design.

Gaming keyboards

Powerhouses of the keyboard world, gaming keyboards usually contain backlit displays and macro keys. They are typically large, comfortable and they contain a slew of extra features. Gaming companies often specialise in keyboards due to their importance in terms of a gamers computer hardware.
