The Keychron K3 – slim, mechanical, and RGB

I mean, really, what’s not to like? Now that I’ve gotten acclimated to a 10-keyless (read: more compact) keyboard what they’ve got going on with the Keychron K3 really seems like a very solid next step.

Extended capability courtesy of Kolude KD-K1

You may have noticed that we have had a lot of keyboard coverage lately. I can’t speak for all of the other authors, but for me, it’s because I’ve been paying a lot more attention to the keyboards out on the market. Prior to, say, 6 months ago, I really just used what was issued to me. Now, I’m becoming a bit more discerning. One of the more recent interesting boards I’ve run across is the Kolude KD-K1.

Working in a compact space with the Vortexgear New 75

In my last keyboard review (here), I mentioned how enamored I had become of typing with a keyboard that featured mechanical switches under the keycaps. That one was definitely full-size, complete with the 10-key over on the right. Well, what if you don’t want the 10-key, or you simply need a more compact solution for a smaller space? Then something like the Vortexgear New 75 is worth a look.

Type in a satisfying manner with the Das Keyboard 4 Professional

If you recall, in our prior WFH roundup I mentioned a keyboard as something to consider. At the office, I’m used to using a work-provided external keyboard at the desk. Of course, at home, that wasn’t the case. So, we reached out to some brands to see what we could check out, and one of the first in was the Das Keyboard 4 Professional.

KN Recommends: work-from-home setup options

In case you haven’t heard, we’ve got a bit of a pandemic going on right now. Global, even. That means that quite a large percentage of the workforce has shifted to remote working to keep the lights on. While that means network infrastructure has been tested, you might also be testing your home work setup. To that end, we here at KN have some recommendations for you to consider to bolster your productivity. (image credit: Malte Mueller/Getty Images/fStop)

Jam while you type with the Knewkey Rocksete

When it comes to keyboards, I tend to be a bit of a luddite (in a sense) – I just take whatever comes along with what the machine has, or whatever external keyboard is provided at the office. If I wanted to annoy my co-workers with my music, though, something like the Knewkey Rocksete would definitely be worth checking out.

Get your typey-tappy on with the Libra iPad Pro keyboard

The iPad pro is definitely one of the more powerful tablets out there. With it’s pen support, larger screen, and additional capabilities that come with that hardware, there could certainly be a temptation to use it as an ultra-lightweight laptop replacement. If you’re planning to do any sort of writing (text, code, whatever) I’m guessing the pen input is not what you want. For that, you want a keyboard. Well, how about a keyboard that makes the iPad Pro look almost like a MacBook, complete with trackpad? That’s what the Libra keyboard is offering up.
