Eio has both wired and wireless keyboards to choose from. Here are the pros and cons of each when thinking about which is right for you.

Pros of Wireless:

  • Flexibility and mobility: Can type many feet away from one’s desk.
  • No clutter: No tangled wires everywhere.

Cons of wireless:

  • Batteries: must buy batteries to power, which can add up over time.
  • Input Lag: There can be a delay in response after you hit a key.

Which Brands are Good?

While there are numerous brands to choose from, in our opinion, here are some of our favorites:

Adesso – they have a wide array of keyboards to choose from, such as card reader keyboards (built in sd card reader/writer hub), wireless, touchpad, ergonomic, minikeypads, numeric keypads, and flexible keyboards.

Logitech – they have illuminated keyboards, gaming keyboards, wireless solar powered keyboards, the whole gamut!

Microsoft – they have compact keyboards, macintosh compatible, even spill resistant keyboards!

Ergonomic Keyboards 101

Eio is here to help integrate your everyday life with all your electronic needs. Today is a brief introduction on the intersection of ergonomics and electronics, specifically ergonomic keyboards.

Wikipedia defines ergonomics as

“the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body, its movements, and its cognitive abilities.”

These devices are designed to promote health and productivity to the human body, instead of resulting in habits like bad posture or muscle strains.

Ergonomic keyboards, then, are designed to prevent long-term disabilities, such as repetitive muscle strain injuries. Many are structured in ways that are more tailored to the human form, like possessing V-shapes that fit the natural angles of human hands.

Yes, these keyboards may decrease the risk of long-term injuries (such as carpool tunnel syndrome), but it comes at an increase in price. If you’re a writer like me, then an ergonomic keyboard is the right choice for a healthier and safer you!

Eio carries many ergonomic keyboards to choose from:

Microsoft USB Wired Ergonomic Comfort Curve Desktop 3000

ADESSO USB Ergonomic Tru-Form Pro Contoured Keyboard
with Built-In Touchpad and Hot Keys

Happy (and healthy) typing!
