    It's really annoying when some interference eats your click or keypress, and then you have to constantly check if your inputs go through. Also they discharge at the worst moments, and you always get that anxiety in the back of your mind. And if they use rechargeables, you need to get into the habit of charging them constantly, and you know it will hold less and less charge over time until they're dead, and they're essentially a consumable product.

    The question should be reversed, why would you ever buy anything wireless if you only use your computer at one, dedicated desk? Wireless technology is a trap, in my experience there's ALWAYS some tradeoff. It's either price, or weight, or durability, or throughput, or latency, or interference, or having to replace batteries, or having the built-in battery lose capacity over the years. These days, I use simple wired tech everywhere I can, no matter the type of device - e.g. fiber to the home, Ethernet to the room, old Sony headphones with an audio jack - and that eliminates whole classes of tech problems that I see other people have.

      I own wireless everything. Mouse, keyboard, headsets, you name it.

      For the mouse, I got a wireless one because I didn't like the wire dragging across my desk and snagging on various places.
      >but what about the latency? Connectivity issues? The battery?
      Legitimate concerns that played into my research. Mice that solve all of these issues are quite expensive, but they DO exist, and I bought one such mouse, so I have no complaints. It depends on whether you can justify the cost.

      For the headphones, I don't like having the cables rubbing against my body and possibly being forcefully yanked by a misplaced ligament. I also like to frequently get up and move.
      >wireless latency
      You can get RF headphones that have a substantially low latency, to the tune of 20-40ms. Perhaps not as good as wired (though in my tests wired was maybe 5ms faster, could be latency in the drivers for the jack). Sound quality is fine. Cost is VERY high, but I don't regret my purchase and am looking to upgrade in the future.

      Don't buy a wireless keyboard, it's genuinely fricking moronic 99% of the time.
      But even then I had a use case. I do a lot of drawing, and I frequently had to move my keyboard since the screened tablet took up so much space, which involved all manner of cable wrangling. So I eventually bought a wireless keyboard to make the process much easier, which it did. But then I also ended up switching my setup and mounting the tablet to a monitor arm, so the whole reason ended up being moot. I keep it permanently wired now.

        If your preferences are this specific, then I guess it makes sense. For me though, my mouse cable is thin and I have a loop of it on my desk in front of the mouse pad, so I don't feel any resistance from the cable at all. It's just like my mouse was wireless. If that wasn't the case, I'd get a mouse bungee.
        And yeah, Bluetooth headphones have moronicly high latency, you can have more latency between the computer and the headphones than between two ends of a video call on two different sides of the country. You have to get pro quality non-Bluetooth equipment to get low latency. So I use Sony studio headphones with 3 m of coiled cable.

    No point trying to reason with them, this is one thing the majority agrees on. It's mindbogglingly moronic that they don't grasp that when it blinks after a month or so, you are forced to use it as a wired mouse for some hours while it charges. Or charge it while you sleep.

    When you go wireless, the tethering feeling of the resistance to movement a wired one causes feels very icky.

    But I guess these morons use a mini mousepad, with extreme sensitivity so they don't notice it, but they are destined to become ballmouse users down the line. The worst kind of morons, because for some reason when they switch to a stationary ballmouse they go wireless often.

      you know what, you're right! I have had the g502 hero since 2016 and the lightspeed since 2019, I've gotten mixed up. well, i've had the lightspeed for almost 5 years and the battery is still lasting a week, which is about what it lasted when it was new, meaning that even despite being "on charge" for nearly it's entire lifespan, it still has excellent battery life! FWIW i run it on the highest polling rate, i'm sure if you dropped that down it would last even longer.
