Default Wired or Wireless?

When using a keyboard what are the disadvantages of using a wireless keyboard that a wired doesn't have?

Battery time lol. I dont care if its wireless mouse, keyboard, or controler. The time will come when you need to do something, or your in the middle of something important and down go's your battery.

Finished With TF.

Pretty much for gaming - wired are much better for gaming because of no lag.

If you are not gaming, wireless is a good solution. Worry about battery life though, some keyboards don't have good battery life. But wireless keyboards are nice, since you can put them anywhere.

Okay thanks

I was basically wondering about lagging, but I wanted to also know of other things that I might not have thought of, why I didn't ask about lag directly. Thanks
