I spent extra on a half decent mouse and a large gaming mouse pad, but I still use a cheap wireless keyboard. Not only do key-presses go ignored when the battery is low, but SURELY, it takes time to convert my input into a wireless signal, then process it and turn it back into a keypress. How much time are we talking here?The control button is starting to stick down so I'm thinking of retiring it except for when I want to use my PC from bed and getting a wired keyboard for games.
It lasted me well for something cheap and battery operated. My thumb has worn the whole left side of the space bar smooth as glass and right in the middle of this smooth area is a big dent. At the bottom of this dent are the first few holes all the way through the plastic!
