It is said that the Pen is mightier than the Sword. In this Digital Age, we can Replace the Pen with Keyboards, they are equally important. For writers, a keyboard is a tool to helps them flow the words on an empty document page.
Being a Digital writer myself, I am always in search for a better keyboard as it speeds up my writing. I am listing 5 of the best Keyboards I have come across so far.
Dell 104 Quiet Key
I am putting this one on the top though this list is not sorted on the basis of performance, this keyboard is the one I am writing from. The keys are quiet and feel soft, you don’t have to press a key too hard to type the letters.
It has a minimalist design which you are going to love while writing. Initially, I had the accuracy issue with this keyboard but once you get used to it, which could take a week or so, it’s fine.
It’s a wired keyboard but if you are looking for a keyboard that’s under $20. This is the one I recommend.

Microsoft Desktop 2000 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo
This one is a wireless keyboard + wireless mouse combo, the keyboard is beautifully designed and has all the shortcut buttons for music, calculator, volume controls etc.
The keyboard looks sleek and looks beautiful. I won’t say that the keys are harder but they aren’t soft either. I’ve used it for one year and I found that once you get used to it, you will love it, my typos were 20% when I started using this keyboard.
The mouse is little bulky but the blue tracking technology lets you use it one any surface even on Glass.

I had used a cheaper one from Logitech so my faith in them for creating quality product had died until I came across this one, it’s a sleek environment friend keyboard and is a pleasure to type.

Another nice keyboard from Logitech, this one has illuminated lights which make it easy to type when sufficient light is not available, I can count the number of times I was in that situation.
The keys are soft and other features of Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750. The price is little on the high side, but if you care about design, it’s worth the price.

Keyboards Suggested by Our Readers
When I sat to write this list a few weeks ago, I thought I am the only guy who has expertise in telling which keyboard is best for a writer. But then many experiences people came to know about this post and suggest the best Keyboards they have come across. Many readers also expressed their surprise that this list doesn’t include a mechanical keyboard, Well, now it does. 🙂
So, I thought let’s extend this list of best keyboards and put their favourites on this list as well.

Razer Chroma Clicky – Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
I use a “gamer keyboards” specifically the razor chroma. I know it sounds odd, but it feels amazing to use. They designed gamer keyboards for speed and placement so that u can sit and play for hours. (I don’t play games with it, only write) I love my keyboard, thank God I foun it. Did i mention the beautiful lights it has? – Isaac
This comment from Isaac made me curious, when I looked at the Keyboard’s image, it really had the beautiful lights.
Razer Chroma is a mechanical keyboard, and it looks cool. I did try a mechanical keyboard but It was a local brand, and it ruined my experience of using a mechanical keyboard. This one looks cool and I would love to try this.
The Keyboard is listed on Amazon at $139.99, yes, Mechanical Keyboards are costly.
