The 6 best Bluetooth keyboards for every use

Leise, reaktionsfähig und vielseitig: Wirelesse Tastaturen haben sich längst über ihren Ruf von unzuverlässigen Keyboards mit kurzer Laufzeit und Verbindungsschwierigkeiten hinaus entwickelt. Heutzutage sind besonders Bluetooth-Tastaturen eine praktische Lösung – sei es für das Verfassen des nächsten Bestsellerromans oder um den Schreibtisch im Homeoffice aufgeräumt und kabellos zu belassen.

But which Bluetooth keyboard offers the best typing experience for comfortable typing and adapts to the user’s field of application and individual taste? From compact to ergonomic – atechbook presents them: the six best Bluetooth keyboards and what makes them special.

What do good Bluetooth keyboards have to do?

Today’s wireless keyboard models are no longer just about creating a pleasant typing experience and avoiding the clutter of cables. Much more, the king class of wireless keyboards shines with an innovative design and reliable technology.

If you are interested in buying a Bluetooth keyboard, you should ask yourself a few questions beforehand:

How compact or mobile should the device be? Will the keyboard only connect to a computer and laptop or also to a tablet or smartphone? Which operating system will be used? And last but not least: Is the keyboard only used for the home office or also for gaming? Ergonomics also play a big role, because especially those who bang the keys for a longer period of time will quickly notice that an uncomfortable hand position turns every further keystroke into torture.

Therefore, atechbook has found the six highest-quality Bluetooth keyboards for each area of use and presents them below.

The mechanical one: Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro

Mechanicale Tastaturen wie die Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro liegen voll im Trend, denn durch ihr eingebautes Kunststoffgerüst unter jeder Taste sind sie langlebiger als sogenannte Rubberdome-Modelle, die standardmäßig in den meisten Keyboards verbaut sind. Die aufwendigere Herstellung und zusätzliche Features wie die farbenfrohe RGB-Beleuchtung erklären auch den höheren Preis. Besonders beliebt sind diese Bluetooth-Tastaturen deshalb bei Gamern. Oftmals werden in der Gaming-Szene kabelgebundene Modelle bevorzugt, doch die Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro punktet mit einer Sendefrequenz von schnellen 2,4 Gigahertz und einer stabilen Bluetooth-Verbindung zum Gerät. Wer etwas weniger Schnickschnack möchte, findet in dem Cherry MX Board 1.0 Backlight eine mechanische Alternative für den Alltag.
