Budget?

How is the keyboard going to be used: gaming, video editing, music.... etc.?

Question: "Both use wireless and wired." - Do you mean that you are willing to use either a wired or wireless keyboard? No preference?

My recommendation is that you go "hands on" on as many keyboards as possible. It is good that that you have prioritized the requirements ("Ordered by importance") but actually seeing, feeling, and using any given keyboard may make you change your mind about some things.

A keyboard may, for example, meet all of the listed requirements but feel flimsy and awkward.

Start by reading current keyboard reviews via this Forum and elsewhere.

Identify 4 or 5 keyboards that you believe meet your requirements.

Then visit the respective manufacturer's websites to read the applicable User Guides/Manuals. Also read the FAQ's and Forums (if any).

Look for both what is said and what is not said.

In any case, "hands on" for any given keyboard.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

No max budget.

I meant features both wirelessly and wired usage.

The research I've done so far is Opened above linked tabs then checked each images and product pages. I've knocked out about half of the priced ones so far.

I don't have much confidence in the accuracy of PCPP Kb filters because example:
-Logi G915 disappears when I tick the "Wireless" box.
-So who bloody knows what else has been excluded with other filters applied.
-Some are unpriced but I'm going to look at them too, coz sometimes it shows up on Google with non-pcpp vendors.

There's just so much more out there that's not added to pcpp - that's one reason I came to forum.

Appreciate the "hands on" suggestion but it's very limited selection on display at box stores.
And I find online/Returns are easy enough these days if you're not happy with it.

PCPP Links in Australia - correct?

Agree - box stores seldom have a full selection of available products but that likely depends on geography. So I will need to defer to Forum members in your area with regards to stores and "hands-on" opportunities.

As for PCPP - skip them and their filters.

Use Google or what ever search engine you prefer to directly search for keyboards meeting your requirements.

I googled "both wired and bluetooth keyboard" and received quite a number of links. (Time frame = 1 year.)

For example (not a product recommendation):

And it is good that returns are not likely to be an issue. No so for some people.

You are going to have very very very few results for all of this in one keyboard, I can't think of anything decent that has media keys and is wireless.
Don't know if they have key lock status light, their specs should say though.

The Logitech G915 is probably the only one with everything you want.

DAS makes a nice one with RGB and media keys, but not wireless
