What to Look for When Choosing A Roll Up Keyboard

The challenge of portable keyboards

I don’t like keyboards that are tightly spaced, and will not use one even if given for free.  I don’t think I am fat fingered, but hitting two keys when I type on small keyboards is something that I find time wasting – having to endlessly correct what I typing. So, full sized keyboards are the choice for me. But, how do you deal with the additional space they occupy, especially if you travel a lot and would like to working with standard sized keyboards wherever you are.

Roll up keyboards, if you have not tried one, is the perfect answer to typing anywhere on a full sized keyboard anywhere –  so long as you have sufficient space to roll out the full length, you are ready to type normally with striking two keys at a time, and getting frustrated with repeated corrections.

There are many inexpensive full sized, flexible Keyboard that you can use at work, roll up and take home, and use when you travel. Roll up keyboards fold really small and tuck into any bag so you can take them anywhere.

The size is not the only feature I look for when deciding on a good roll up keyboard.  I would also use these 5 tips to make sure the keyboard will serve me well in different situation.

  1. Most modern PCs and laptops support USB Keyboard. Make sure yours can.
  2. Look for silicone roll up keyboards. They are more rugged and are water proof
  3. Do you need the numeric pad? Look for a full sized roll up Keyboard.
  4. Make sure the USB cable length is enough. Some are way too short
  5. Spice up your desk. Check out the cool colors at the top of my reviews.
