Wired or Wireless

Do you prefer a wired or wireless mouse and keyboard? I prefer wired because I do not want to worry about batteries, but every once in a while the cords start to annoy me.

  • Wireless all the way, I thought batteries would be a problem, but I only need to replace them about once a year and they also have rechargeable options now, but the ability to use a mouse especially wireless makes a huge difference for me, sometimes with a corded mouse the mouse could move on it own because of the cable flexing and when you are trying to design something that can be annoying.

  • Wireless all the way!! So much easier, cleaner and more streamlined. 

  • Wireless is the way to go. The latency is usually minimal.

  • Could I nuance the wireless responses by asking: Bluetooth or USB dongle?    

    I'm okay with a wired mouse and had used them up until a few years ago. But now I primarily use a wireless mouse for portability. I've found that the USB dongle type usually connects better and provides better response than the Bluetooth, but I do like that the Bluetooth mice tend to be on the slimmer side. So it's a toss up for me which wireless kind I prefer.

  • I do prefer wireless so I don't have to worry about wires on my desk. I just got a Logitech G512 Carbon mechanical keyboard. It's wired, but I love how it feels. I would sacrifice a wire on my desk for this keyboard.

  • I have a Logitech MX Master 2 mouse.(gen 3 is the current version) It supports USB dongle and Bluetooth. I have not noticed any response or connection issues with this mouse.

  • I agree with the USB dongle, I have had problems with the Bluetooth, so I only use the ones with USB dongle, right now I am using a Logitech MX Master 2S Rechargeable, that I actually won here probably a year ago, it fits my hand very nice. It looks like the MX Master 3S took its place - Logitech MX Master 3S Performance Wireless Mouse (Black) | Lenovo US

  • I only use Bluetooth to keep the USB ports available.  I use the Logitech MX series and rarely have any issues. I have it pared with three different computers so I can move it around as needed. 

  • I've actually never tried Bluetooth! I must now!! I like the USB option though so far - biggest downside is that it takes a port away. 

  • I use my mouse mostly with a desktop computer, so the usb port is usually not a problem, but yes I agree if you have a laptop Bluetooth connection would be much nicer
