    Hi, I do a lot of typing at night time and the click of my keyoard's keys can be quite noticeable when there is pure silence. I have a Logitech K520 which isn't so loud but I would really love a keyboard that has the same type of keys as my Samsung laptop which are practically silent. Most laptops I've tried have similar keyboards in that the key doesn't travel far at all and there is no 'clicky' sounds either.

    I have no idea what I would search for as I don't know what the style of keyboard is called. There are various names on the market, 'soft touch', 'quiet touch', 'low profile' etc etc but nothing that specifically identifies a laptop style.

    I would just like a wireless laptop keyboard basically, even if it's the same size as a laptop keyboard but preferrably full sized.

    Thanks very much for any advice (y)

    You are probably looking for a flat membrane keyboard.

    A lot of the "portable"/roll-up keyboard are pretty quiet.

    You are in UK so go to any PCWORLD SHOP and see the range of keyboards there & play with them to see what suits
    then either buy from them or buy the same cheaper online

    The only way is to test them out & PCworld is the only place I know that has a large range on display that allows you to play around with them

    You can also try other stores like Comet or Maplins, but they don't tend to have such a large range on display to play around with although they do carry quite a range
