Which Is The Best Wireless Gaming Keyboard?
5. G-Cord Wireless Gaming Keyboard
Best Budget Wireless Gaming Keyboard
If you are looking to get into the wireless keyboard circles, but don’t want it to cost you an arm and a leg, I have some excellent options here. The best entry-level wireless gaming keyboard is the G-Cord Wireless, with an extremely affordable price, wireless and wired modes, LED light effects, mechanical switches, and great battery life the G-Cord is a bargain.
Aesthetically speaking, the G-Cord Wireless looks excellent, with a slim body and slim size for a full-sized keyboard, the keycaps are aligned on top of the plastic deck that feels pretty good, however, I would only complain about the lack of some kind of wrist rest. The LED lights on this keyboard are amazing, giving you amazing light effects, with plenty of customization, sometimes it can get distracting but the light effects are definitely some of its strong points, with 6 light modes that can be changed on the fly by pressing the FN and F9 button simultaneously.
In the package of the G-Cord Wireless, you get the keyboard itself, a micro USB cable that is about 5 feet long, a USB receiver, a keycap puller, and the user manual which explains the features, controls and the connectivity with clarity.
The keyboard is a full-sized one, with the Numpad included and it has a total of 104 keys, however, there are no discrete media keys. The mechanical switches work pretty well and give an excellent tactile response and the right amount of click sound that is soothing, they are all designed to have no ghosting and no lagging whatsoever, and in my experience, I experienced none of either.
You can connect the keyboard with a cable if you wish for extremely high-speeds, and if you want to have a casual session or want to take it to the office you can connect via Bluetooth which was also pretty quick, not as the other method but was adequate for some gaming.
The G-Cord Wireless has a 1300mAh rechargeable battery that can last about 240 hours with the LED lights active and with heavy use, however, if you choose to keep the lights off and use it moderately it will last about 600 hours.
One of the most impressive budget keyboards in the market hands down.
4. CORSAIR K63 Wireless
The Most Durable Wireless Gaming Keyboard
It would be a shame to make a best wireless gaming keyboards list without including a product from Corsair. Corsair is already known for producing the best gaming keyboards on the market, the K63 was also an impressive and solid keyboard, the company took it and made it wireless, and is as feature-packed as its wired counterpart while still having an affordable price, it is the perfect gaming keyboard for the couch because it has a solid wireless connection, great design, Cherry MX mechanical switches, and countless more features that will provide to be useful.
If clean and modern is your aesthetic than look no further than the CORSAIR K63 Wireless, it features a straightforward frameless design, with a beautiful top bezel that adds a nice touch. It may not have an aluminum build as its more high-end siblings, but its plastic body feels extremely rigid, and it is definitely the most durable keyboard on this list. For the keycaps, it has kept the floating design, and under them, you will find an excellent blue backlight, that is powerful enough to provide light but it is not distracting at all. The palm rest has a thin sheet of textured rubber on top, the whole piece connects to the keyboard via two clips which do not feel as good as the whole body.
Each of this keyboards keys uses Cherry MX Red switches for operation and houses a single LED light underneath each key, the Cherry MX Red switches all work excellently, with instant registering without delays, 4mm of key travel, and silent strokes, and I think the switches are one of its major selling points. The battery life of the keyboard is about 15 hours with lights at full, and about 75 hours if you turn them off.
The 2.4GHz connection was excellent and stable even in wireless-saturated ambients, such as offices and cafes, it had no problems connecting with the PC and keeping it stable. I also want to state that this is an extremely portable keyboard so you can easily take it to the office or to the LAN parties.
Overall, the CORSAIR K63 Wireless with its quality-build that is extremely durable, Cherry MX Red switches, great connection, and excellent design is a serious contender to become your next keyboard.

It connects via Logitech’s own Lightspeed dongle or via Bluetooth, though you don’t get the ultra-low latency and rapid 1ms report rate while in Bluetooth. It is interesting seeing Logitech not adding the option of connecting it with a cable. The two connectivity methods are pretty cool if you want to jump back and forth between typing on your computer and typing on your phone. The keyboard even comes with a cute little phone stand.
This keyboard is equipped with Romer-G mechanical switches that are known for being tactile while being extremely quiet, they are not as comfortable as other models though.
