We return to the cable war, this time with the mice. Wireless or wired? Each one has pros and cons, in this article I want to discuss them. Which one will you stay with?
Wireless mouseAt first glance it seems more comfortable and useful, right? Well, it’s half true, because these mice are made for the average user, office automation, to use at work, if we have a computer in the living room… Wireless mice, whether via Bluetooth or radio frequency (these are the most common), have several advantages and other disadvantages. Below we will make a small table with pros and cons. Pros: • They do not have cables. Obviously this is the first advantage. A wireless mouse is more comfortable and we can place it anywhere in the house (with a maximum distance). It is very useful when watching movies in the living room without having to get up, for example. • Freedom when playing. Many times when we are concentrated we start to shake the mouse to destroy our enemies. If you have a cable, it has surely happened to you that you accidentally force yourself and give the cable a tug. If it is wireless, we avoid that by having a much wider radius to play. . Cons: • Extended expense. If you opt for a wireless mouse, look for one with a battery and if they come with a couple of them, even better. Many times people forget that wireless mice need power, so if they are battery-powered we may have an extra expense compared to wired ones. • Response speed. This is another weak point of wireless mice, when the mouse makes a movement it reaches the computer via radio frequency (those of which we have to connect a small USB to the computer) or via Bluetooth. Whatever the option, that time it takes is called latency, and it makes the response speed slower in video games, they are thousandths of a second but there are many people who are uncomfortable. • Interferences. You have to be careful, if it is radio frequency, objects in the house can cause interference, such as a radio controlled car. • System boot. Until you have the computer with your operating system running, it will not recognize the keyboard or mouse, so if you want to enter the BIOS you will have to connect one by cable.
