Should have media keys and possibly ergonomic and still have some backlighting :-) Please be available on MX brown
Or just a Bluetooth dongle to plug into a miniUSB slot of a mech keyboard.
I have been a member of this community for the sole purpose of discovering a decent mechanical keyboard with wireless connectivity. I haven't been using corded HID devices for ~8 years now, and while I am willing to pay double for mechanical novelty (to me at least), I cannot afford the inconvenience of a cord.
I get some people prefer having constant minor inconvenience of the leash over the occasional major inconveniences of connectivity issues. I just don't. All the other people with wireless keyboards, mech or non-mech, also don't.
If anyone has a suggestion better than bluetooth that is still wireless and isn't also plagued with issues, please suggest it. I've had nothing but issues with other wireless devices honestly. Bluetooth at least I can usually get working again.
But someone out there might know about something better than all of what we have been using and not really wanting to use too much since a cable is objectively better latency wise, but wireless is super damn convenient.
Bluetooth keyboards aren't very popular because a lot of them seem to have some severe connectivity issues, but it wouldn't be a bad idea.

Well, let me put it this way. All the other types of wireless stuff out there I have tried using just did not work well at all for me.
Bluetooth... Well... At least I can get it working again most of the time. But yeah it does have its issues. Especially if your transmitter whether it be embedded or some usb dongle; sucks.

I should also add that most of my previous wireless devices used were Logitech made.
