The development of a wireless keyboard and mouse has provided a great deal of flexibility and convenience for computer users. We’ll discuss these products in more detail.
A wireless keyboard and mouse eliminates the need to connect the keyboard and mouse to the computer through a cord. This enables greater flexibility in placing the keyboard or mouse in a more convenient spot without having to worry about the cord getting in the way during normal operation.
The wireless connection is made through a transmitter in the keyboard or mouse and then to a receiver which is connected to the computer through a USB type cable connection. The receiver can be placed in a convenient spot out of the way of the keyboard or mouse.
These units transmit their signals wirelessly through different wireless formats. A very common recent wireless format is Bluetooth. This type of wireless format works out well due to its ability to transmit signals reliably with little degradation due to interference from other wireless devices.
It also has a longer range than many other wireless formats so this provides great flexibility in terms of the best spot to place the keyboard or mouse. It can even be across the room from the computer it is supposed to be connected to.
Another advantage of Bluetooth is its ability to extend battery life. This is nice so you won’t have to replace the battery in the keyboard or mouse as often.
These wireless keyboards and mouse are commonly designed and produced by manufacturers such as Logitech and Microsoft. Both of these companies have a great deal of experience in working with input devices and are therefore very skilled at providing good wireless products.
It is now possible to purchase a wireless keyboard and mouse combination or you can purchase them separately. What is nice is that these devices are all compatible so it is not necessary to purchase separate products for different computers. As far as your computer is concerned there is a USB connection made to the computer.
And the prices for these units can be quite modest. They may range from $ 30 to $ 50 for the set.
The response and sensitivity of the keyboards and mouse is generally quite good although degradation of signal may occur with significant interference. However it must be understand that this is a consideration which must be understood.
But for the most a wireless keyboard and mouse can be very convenient for the users and their price is quite modest given the benefits provided.
