Default wireless or not?

I will have to change my keyboard very soon (it is old and getting all the keys stucked).
The question, is wireless or not wireless? i have read some reviews about the new keyboards that work with bluetooth technology, but can't find reviews of people that have used them or are using them. Anyone?

If I were you, I'd try disassembing my KB and cleaning it out first (especially the space under the keys).
Only a major malfunction would make me replace it.

NOT_wireless. i got seriously fcuking tired after my 'oh cool logitech wireless keyboard on my bed while i gaze in to monitor 3 meters away' dis-charged. in those worst possible moments. and when it was not in the worst moment, it was just annoyng. after a while i sold the keyboard and i would rather get longer usb cable than getting back to the curse of technology

A wireless mouse, that makes sense. But a wireless keyboard, I don't know. I use one, but only because my old keyboard was broken and I had still this one, which came with my actual PC. The only times where I use the non-wirelessity is when I watch Cowboy Bebop while lying on the sofa. ...Whereat it strikes me, that I moved my PC to my room recently, and there is no sofa... (because my brother doesn't allow me to break through the old bricked door, and so I have no passage for carrying in the sofa I want to buy...)

I don't want to sit on a screwdriver (do you?), nor do I want to kill my brother with it.

Sometimes you even can't use system repair CDs with wireless ones, you are obliged to plug in a wired one.

DAMNED I HATE IT WHEN SOMEONE ASK TO GET THEM OUT OF THE SHIT AND I MUST DRIVE HOME AGAIN TO GET AN OLD KEYBOARD SO I CAN BOOT INTO SYSTEM REPAIR STUFFIES.
In other words: you're gonna be screwed the day you have system problems.
And of course no Dos based repair progs.
Oh yeah, you gonna be screwed.

I've never jumped the wireless bangwagon. Wireless internet? Huge security breach. Wireless mouse? I have no problems with the cords on the mouses? Wireless keyboard? Why would I ever want that? My keyboard always sit centimeters away from my screen on my desk...
