I'm currently using a Logitech k320 (wireless) keyboard.  In the beginning, it was alright..  but now the keys tend to jam (grind into each other) making it impossible to press completely down.  It's a physical issue yes.

 

I'm looking for a better keyboard that is easy to press (for arrow type games like DDR on the keyboard).  A real performer :)

 

I'd like it to be wireless too.  Anyone have experience with this?  Please suggest a better wireless keyboard.

Easy, or accurate? For easy I'd go with a chicklet style keyboard like the Apple ones. For accurate you can't do better than a mechanical keyboard, but I don't think anyone makes a wireless one.

I use the Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 and I love it. Really good feedback on the keyboard and the curve gives it that bit of extra comfort. And the media keys are quite nice too!

Hi Threetonesun,

 

Just ebayed wireless mechanical.. holy moly, those things are expensive :o   guess I'll tap into my coin stash to get one :)  (unless of course I find cheaper).   Thanks for the advice.

 

Ambroos,

 

My current keyboard uses those rubbery plastic membranes under the actual keys,  does the media 5000 have them too?

I think so yeah. But I really like it, I've had two (desktop and laptop dock) for a few years now and neither of them has broken. Plus, Microsoft has amazing warranty (at least in Europe). Just give them a ring, fill in a form and a few weeks later there's a brand new set (the same or better depending on availability) on your doorstep and you get to keep the old broken one.

Logitech K350 - AKA  Logitech Wave.

An extremely comfortable keyboard.  Look around and you can get the K350 for $40.00

I have been using one for about 2 years now and love them.  In fact, the only thing keeping me from getting a mechanical is because I like this one so much.  Now if they would just bring back the MX Revolution, everything would be right in the world.
