Hmm advantages would be that you can use them from anywhere upto the bluetooth signal range, but the main disadvantage is that you are prone to virus. But the chances are less. And you always have to put the bluetooth dongle attached any problem with that and you cant use your device.

Very costly !

Is that all the wireless mouse and keyboard must need bluetooth installed? Or we not necessary need bluetooth but just install some drivers in our computer?

Thanks in advance for reply.

Advantage of wireless keyboards and mouse:

They can moved around easily

Disadvantage:

Aside from the fact that they are expensive, they eat up a lot of batteries just like what sudes16 said, most especially the mouse.. You need to change it every few weeks depending on your battery..

First Advantage of wireless keyboards and mouse: is like Bhing said They can moved around easily + you do not need to plug wires of the keyboard and mouse to the holders and can move around easily anywhere.
Disadvantage is it could be damaged easily and eat up lot of batteries.

I prefer wired keyboard and mouse.

Wireless have the massive disadvantage of large power consumption, meaning you spend alot of money on batteries and good rechargable batteries are expensive and also a pain.

I always have my kayboard on my desk, its bad for your hands if it is anywhere else, so there is no need for wireless anyway.

Same here, I more prefer the wired one as well.. Aside from the fact that they are cheap and affordable, I don't have to go through the process of changing batteries and stuff.. They are just safe in the table..

Actually, I also felt wired mouse or keyboard is good enough for me as I normally only will use my laptop on a table. But I think wireless mouse and keyboard is useful when doing presentation. As we may be need to stand far behind the computer to control our keyboard or mouse.

I prefer wireless keyboards and mouses as I can control from the sofa when I am watching movies on the PC connected to my TV.

Some keyboards and mice come with built in rechargable batteries and can be charged up in a docking station which could be handy if you are concerbed about battery consumption.

I agree.. and that is one of the advantage of those wireless stuff.. But with the advantage, there comes the disadvantages as well.. but I guess, it still depends on the owner on how to handle his stuffs..

in my opinion, the bigger disadvantage of the wireless mouse/keyboards is the fact that it uses batteries, which batteries give up on you when you need them the most.

The biggest disadvantage is their batteries and short working life other than that They don't provide the features as per their cost

using a wireless mouse and keyboard is really amazing, i am still struck by how functional and latest it is.

but of course, i had to pay a large extra amount for it, specially the keyboard one. but hey, for a techy fun, that's worth it...

in terms of disadvantages, i think sooner or later, the connection will be intercepted by other devices and that will really mess the connection.

advantages, i think you can really go far and still be able to use the devices.. no stubborn cords as well.lol

Now a days, we have many things wireless. So the signals of mouse may be lost. And the battery is another headache.
