Wired vs. Wireless
- Although a wireless keyboard and mouse are sleek and less cumbersome without all the cords, the batteries need to be changed somewhat frequently.
- Look for wireless devices that come with USB chargers that are integrated into the device.
- Wireless components are susceptible to interference from other RF devices which can cause the component to function improperly.
- Wired input devices are considerably cheaper than wireless devices and most of the time provide the same functions.
- Wireless devices allow for user input anywhere within the acceptable range.
- If you have integrated your television and computer into the same monitor, consider purchasing a wireless mouse and/or keyboard.
