An Overview of Goldtouch Wired and Wireless Products
Modern technology has given us every opportunity to transform our desktops. But should you choose wired or wireless products? We can’t answer that for you, but we can give you all the information you need to decide between the wide array of Goldtouch wired and wireless products. An ergonomic keyboard is a must for effective and efficient typing- whether wired or wireless.
Ideally, wired keyboards need to be physically plugged into a computer while wireless ones don’t. They can also be used up to around 30 feet away from the desktop, a much longer distance than the typical 6-feet cable on wired keyboards.
However, wired keyboards come with their advantages too. Their performance cannot be compromised by signal interference. You also have nothing to worry about the battery life or the input lag.
Let’s explore in detail the preferences between Goldtouch wired and wireless products.
Wired products have a wire with a USB on the end to plug into your computer or laptop. Once connected, they run smoothly. More so, wired keyboards and mice are usually less expensive than wireless options.
Pros of Wired Products
- Stable with no internet interference
- Usually less expensive compared to wireless keyboards
- Plug into a power source / won’t lose power when in use
- No batteries or charging cable required
Cons of Wired Products
- You can only use it within the length of the cable
- Wires can be a bit messy
- It occupies a USB port
When it comes to productivity, a reliable PC or computer is a must. But besides that, having the right accessories is imperative. A wireless keyboard and an ergonomic mouse are essential accessories. If you want to use your keyboard or mouse away from your computer or hate dealing with cables, a wireless keyboard is a suitable accessory.
Wireless keyboards and mice use two main technologies for connectivity: 2.4GHz or Bluetooth. Bluetooth models assume the host PC supports Bluetooth, while the 2.4ghZ connects via a wireless USB dongle to your machine.
The 2.4GHz provides a stable connection. However, no laptop or computer has built-in support for 2.4GHz keyboards. Therefore, you need a USB dongle, which should always come with a 2.4 GHz device.
Pros of Wireless Products
- Less clutter on desktop or workspace
- Great for portability
- Can work from further distances (i.e 30 feet wireless vs. 6 feet wired)
Cons of Wireless Products
- More expensive
- Require batteries or charging cable
- Can result in interference with other devices
Fundamentals of Buying Wired and Wireless Keyboards/Mice
With the knowledge of wired and wireless keyboards, the next hurdle is choosing the right gadget. When buying computer keyboards and mice, you need to consider a few things, including:
What type of work will you handle with the keyboard? Are you an office worker, or do you spend a lot of time traveling? The keyboards are designed with specific features to suit intended purposes.
An ergonomic keyboard gives you a comfortable, excellent typing experience if you spend hours typing. An external numeric keypad is ideal for those who work with numbers a lot.
Whether you’re buying a wireless or wired keyboard, ensure it’s compatible with the system. We offer keyboards compatible with both PC and Mac, but it’s important to note the V2 keyboards are PC OR Mac compatible.
Our keyboards are designed for ideal ergonomics — each tenting and splaying from 0-30 degrees on both the horizontal and vertical planes.
If you focus on portability and flexibility, a foldable keyboard can be an ideal choice as it doesn’t take much space. Our Go!2 keyboards easily fold in half for travel ease, and they are also great for the office as well.

Extra Function Keys
Goldtouch keyboards have extra function (FN) keys for controlling volume, music player, and launching apps. They are also programmable through the use of third-party software (please note, Goldtouch cannot provide support on third-party software).
Our V2 keyboards are made with rubber domed keys, whereas the Go!2 keyboards are designed with scissor-switch keys. To learn more about these keyboards, read this article.
Wireless keyboards are generally more expensive than wired keyboards. More so, features determine the price of a keyboard. So be smart when choosing your device to ensure you don’t spend on things you don’t need.
