Labtec Wireless Desktop
Advantages: No wires, freedom
Disadvantages: Have to replace batteries
When wireless mice and keyboards came out they were all the rage, everybody wanted one. The main reason is that for people with PCs there were already too many wires at the back of the computer. And to try and find your mouse of keyboard cable to untangle it or to try and solve a problem was a nightmare. Not to mention you would move the mouse to a position only to let it go and have the tangled wire pull it back, so it is no longer where u need it, or worse still it falls on the floor.
The first thing that hits you about this product is that it's not just your standard keyboard. The black and silver finish really makes it stand out. With the mouse also matching the keyboard, it will add a bit of 'bling' to anyone's desk.
No more being tied to your chair being unable to move away because you don't have the freedom to move away a little and peek at who is shouting for you. Also great for times when you maybe don't have a desk. Now any surface can be your desk. Be it a coffee table or the floor. (So long as you stay in range of course)
For me this was the large downside to the wireless age. Not only would you be paying more to get this new found freedom, as they usually cost more than a simple keyboard. But the ongoing cost of consumables like batteries just wasn't worth it. Not to mention the mouse dying in the middle of your epic game battle or late night report writing. Meaning you have to go find new batteries before you can finish your task.
They are a great idea and were fun for a while, but it's much cheaper to just buy a plug in keyboard, maybe even pay more to get a longer cable length?
Summary: Has its uses, but would rather deal with a cable any day
