Keyboards

Keyboards are a vital peripheral for PC users, and regardless of your budget it's important to pick the right one. The most important consideration is what sort of feel you want. For instance, most cheaper keyboards use dome switches mounted on top of a membrane, giving very little tactile feedback. Therefore, touch typists and gamers may want to consider choosing a keyboard with mechanical switches as these provide much greater tactile feedback. Mechanical switches are available in different grades, such as black, brown and blue to name just a few, each with its own set of characteristics. Once you’ve chosen the switch type, Scan offers a wide range of keyboards in a huge variety of colours, styles, including backlit and RGB-illuminated keyboards. Scan further offers specialist keyboards for professional workstations, which are optimised for specific applications.

Wired PC Keyboards

The keyboard is the main interaction from the user to the computer aside from the mouse. Keyboards feature more than just the simple letter and number keys, advanced features include keys that short cut to specific functions within the computers operating system and installed programs. Advanced keyboard controls to look out for include shortcut keys such as volume, back/forward, sleep, standby and print for example.
