i use corded mouse and keyboard before for my PC at home and in the office since i am more comfortable with them ever since. now with the development of cordless mouse and keyboard all of my officemates have switch to them and they are convincing me to try them too. well i came to think of trying it just to test its difference with the corded accessories and so as to make my friends stop teasing me. the result is great, cordless is simply amazing although you will need to install them, having cordless mouse gives you more freedom and will enable you to work freely unlike on corded mouse where you will always need to pull the cord once in a while when it gets stuck. cordless rocks and i love it.! you can try them too.

I still prefer mouse and keyboard with cord. I have an i-cafe and if i use cordless, i still need to buy batteries to keep it using. If i'm going to use a laptop, it is better to use a cordless mouse.

Buy the way i prefer mouse to laptop because it's quite hard for me to use the built in. But built in is still ok.

At the moment i dont have either, i do want one of those keyboard that lights up at night, makes typing easier. then again, i would also use the voice recognition on my computer, which i think is a good feature, i can control my laptop by dictating.

I've never used a cordless mouse and keyboard before. At both work and home I'm using a laptop, so I'm obviously using the keyboard that comes with the laptop :) …and I have a usb mouse attached for both laptops. Have never tried a cordless mouse before although that would probably be so cool, i imagine. perhaps someday!

I tried them but they are not good as the traditional ones because they need batteried and one must take more care of them since they are more likely to fall. Since they are not connected to anywhere.

I have used both. I still love my corded keyboard and mouse. I have friends that likes to come over and hide your keyboard and mouse if they are wireless! So I'm keeping my cords!! Plus I know they are always there, not like under my desk or bed!!

i got a dell and bought a cordless mouse and a cordless keyboard and like them very much..but the bluetooth went out first and i had to call Dell in India and was put on teck support for an hour and a half while they tried to correct my problem over the phone..so finally i screamed at the Indian tech support and called hima lot of dumb names..and told him that in the US we just take defective parts back for a exhange or a refund..so the guys in Indiana were upset when i tild them that Dell was junk make in a cheap way..so the Dell company sent me a brand new mouse and keyboard..free..one set for wireless and one set for keyboard..so now I have three sets of keyboards, three sets of mouse..and new bluettooth but the keyboard and mouse eat up a lot of battery life so i juse the wireless mouse for surfing the web and hook up the keyboard via the cable as this takes more battery life..but they dell company did send me extra batteries and told me they were sorry for the inconvenience..but it took me ten days to get the stuff so i used an old mouse and just bought a $20.00 keyboard from Walmart and I liked this cheap keyboard from Walmarts better then Dell...it had a lot of features that Dell did not even have...but just watch the battery indicator level on your monitor..they always tell when the batteries get weak..good luck

Personally i plan on sticking with corded mouse and keyboard. the batteries and it running out irritates me. i know you can get rechargeable and everything but i just prefer corded. i don't need to run around with my mouse and keyboard so corded is fine with me :)

the downside of cordless is that you have to buy batteries in order to run. but i know there some cordless mouse that actually not cordless at all coz the mouse pad it self is atouch to the pc and i know it was expensive mouse ever. as of now i use corded mouse and keyboard.

I have a laptop and I have used a cordless mouse with it before but I prefer using the touch pad. When I primarily used my desktop PC my husband was going to get me a cordless mouse and keyboard; but then we got the laptop and we don't even touch the big PC anymore. The only thing I use that is cordless now is the wireless internet.

On one of my computers, I have wireless mouse and keyboard, on my other i have a wireless mouse, and a wired keyboard, I think that they both work exactly the same. There is no difference, apart from the freedom of them. Chris :)

In the past my friend gave me a cordless keyboard and mouse. At first I though it was cool. However, I don't think it's good enough. Because when you type fast, there will be some spelling mistakes. So after that, I have to use the normal keyboard and mouse. It's much more reliable.

i use wired keyboard and wired mouse. i think it is much better to use it. and i do not buy stuffs for the pc unless i needed it. since the pc comes with a mouse and keyboard, that is okay for me already. :)

The major annoyance of a conventional mouse with cord is, of course, the cord. Cordless mouse works great but it may run out of battery. Another solution is a mouse with retractable cord and USB. The mouse draws its power from the USB and users can adjust the desired length of the cord.

I've used both, and even bought new cordless mouse and keyboard last year, but I definitely prefer a corded mouse. The cordless keyboard works fine, but the mouse is sometimes a bother. You have to move around a little extra than you would if corded, and it's just faster and less annoying to use a corded mouse.

I tried cordless keyboard and mouse I think in '99. Husband (then boyfriend) bought it from Europe, yes it's nice and cool because of the freedom. But I hate it when you ran out of batteries! They should make one with USB recharge. Or do they have that already? :D
