What Makes a Good Ergonomic Keyboard?
We used this criteria when we were researching the best ergonomic and wireless keyboards:
- Keyboard Design – Those split and have keyboard designs do go a long way into making your hands and wrists feel comfortable while typing.
- Wrist Rest – We feel like this is a standard among any ergonomic keyboard, the difference is the materials used. That is why we picked the ones that had the most comfort.
- Price – Of course, not everyone wants to spend upwards of $100 for a new keyboard, everyone’s budget is different. Something we try to keep in mind when writing these kinds of posts.
- Brand – We try to showcase as many brands as we can so that readers and future shoppers know that they have many options and shouldn’t feel like they have to stick to one.
- Extra Features – Ergonomic is good. But having extra features is great. Things like a power-saving mode, extra keys, wireless options, etc. Everyone has different needs, and nobody should be limited on value because they want something ergonomic.
