The parameters that you should look at first

All the important factors that are in the following table.

No.ParameterDescription of the parameter
1BrandWell, As I always said, Brand is what you can trust. Brands don't offer quality products but also good customer service.
So, if you have to pay slightly more for the branded products like made by AmazonBasics, HP, Dell, Logitech, iBall, TechNet, Zebronics, and HyperX then I recommend going for it.
2WeightThe weight of the keyboard that you are going to purchase for the normal use (Other than Gaming purpose) should less than 1000 g.
Moreover, It will be easier for you to move the lightweight item.
3WarrantyThe warranty is the most important parameter out of many. And, for the wired keyboards, it should be more than 1 year.
I strongly recommend that don't buy one that comes with a warranty of less than 1 year.
4Cable lengthFor the wired keyboard, cable length becomes an important factor.
The length of cable should minimum of 1.5 meters.
5Hot keysThe hot keys are those which used to start/stop music, control volume, brightness, etc.
For the hot key, I can say that the necessary keys should be on the keyboard.
It's appreciated if It has a high number of hot keys.
6Keyboard typeThe recommended keyboard type for the normal use (other than Gaming purpose) is membrane type.
7CompatibilityIt must be compatible with majority of OS.
8USB version supportIt must support USB version 2.0 at least.
9Backlit supportBacklit enables you to see the keys when the lights are off. But, it's not compulsory.
So, don't worry If you don't get it.
10ColorThe color of the keyboard that you're going to buy for the normal use (other than gaming purposes) should be Black, grey, or white.
