    Since lockdown, I am working from home 5 days a week.
    To try and cut down on desktop clutter and cable swapping between gaming and work, I want to move to one wireless keyboard. (Prefer mechanical; currently got a Coolermaster CK550)
    Open to any suggestions.
    Prefer MX Browns or equivalent.
    Cheers

    I was in a very similar position, except due to limited desk space I wanted a 60% keyboard. I went with a Royal Kludge RK61 for this reason, but it has features you might like:

    Cherry Browns
    Wireless with a decent battery, although I do charge it every day overnight.
    Bluetooth to three devices (I have a second laptop for Skyrim)
    Cheap compared to others, but not nasty

    Downside, 60% keyboard is a real compromise.

    Now I've had a quick look about to see if they do a full size version, and it looks like they do but on a 2.4 GHz with a dongle. Would moving a dongle to switch between PCs be an issue for you? Do you need full size (or UK layout, this has irked me slightly as even when set to UK there's a key missing and I can't easily use pipe)? And is budget much of an issue?

    I looked at keyboards for a bit and it's a minefield!

    Hi and thanks for taking the time to reply.
    I would be ok with swapping a dongle and similarly ok with a full size keyboard.
    I can't find any keyboards from this company for sale in the UK, would you have a link?

    I'm afraid I can only find it as an import, on 15-20 business days, link.

    Still, for £41 it looks to be a contender. Price was really an issue for me as it was my first mechanical board since the old AT Cherrys, and I didn't want to spend a lot on a 60% as it might be awful.

    Edit: That one seems to be Cherry Blues, sorry.

    (I told you it was a minefield!)

    Thanks for your time.
    I think I would like to stick to a UK site so as to not have to wait too long.
    Also a site like 'BangGood' doesn't inspire me with great confidence!
    I shall continue looking, cheers.

    I know what you mean but BangGood are actually a decent marketplace for this sort of stuff. They're a million miles from Wish.com, in any case :hehe:
