New keyboadr to be used with tow computers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I am trying to look for a keyboard, which can be easily changed between two different computers without unplugging the cable and then replugging it to the other machine. I don´t want to get always in the back of my pc setup, when I want to use my laptop docked to my displays

I am currently using cheap blakcstorm, so I really don´t have any idea which kinda switch would be good. Keyboard should be backlit, but RGB doesn´t really matter.  This is for both gaming and writing.

So, I would say, that as a budget under 200e. And I eally don´t have anything to integrate it with it, so anything good which you would recomend

I live in Finland

You can get a USB switch which allows you to use any keyboard between multiple computers, here's one on amazon I don't know what you can find in Finland though.

i had that exact switch, had to return it. It bricked a keyboard and caused BSOD's on my desktop after using it for a day or so.


Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)

I haven't bit the bullet to pick up synergy, but I know of some streamers who use it daily. Seems pretty legit and it's lasted for years w/o any major public outlash so it's at the very least... "all right".

Use a kvm switch or get a Bluetooth keyboard with multiple profiles. Logitech has a few that can be switched between profiles and to different devices.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

If you're looking to a free alternative to Synergy, try out Barrier from https://github.com/debauchee/barrier/releases. It is a fork of Synergy 1.x. I use it on a daily basis to share my keyboard and mouse between my work PC and Mac.

Thing is there are probably only a couple of keyboards out there that support this, so your choice will be very limited.
