If you are new to the world of modern computing, you may wonder what a PS/2 mouse is. Even the best computer mouse in the whole world may not be the correct fit for your unique computing system, which is where PS/2-compatible mice come in. So what is a vertical mouse, and what are the benefits of using one? Keep reading to find out.
A 2.4GHz mouse is a wireless design that operates on the 2.4GHz wireless router spectrum if you are wondering what to do when your wireless mouse is not working. In other words, this type of mouse connects via Wi-Fi and not Bluetooth if you are learning how to use 2-mice with a single computer.
Make sure to keep your mouse charged so it will always be there when you need it.
This type of mouse does carry some heavy benefits, despite being at risk for signal interference. Signal interference is often the answer when people question why a computer mouse is lagging.
Choosing a wireless 2.4GHz mouse over a Bluetooth mouse or even a wired mouse has some benefits.
As previously mentioned, this type of mouse can experience signal interference from some household appliances like baby monitors and microwave ovens. Beyond that, however, 2.4GHz designs offer increased stability during use when compared to Bluetooth designs. This is due to the fact that 2.4GHz bands are made to connect to many devices simultaneously, and Bluetooth receivers sometimes struggle with this task. As a bonus, many modern 2.4GHz mice also include a 5GHz receiver, so if your 2.4GHz band goes out, the mouse automatically switches to the remaining band.
Remember what you just read about connection stability? This also pertains to lag. Generally speaking, 2.4GHz mice are less prone to lag when compared to Bluetooth devices. Though the lag presented via Bluetooth mice is minimal, it does make 2.4GHz wireless mice the preferred choice for competitive gamers. Though, to be honest, the best choice for pro gaming is a wired connection.
STAT: Since a Bluetooth signal only transmits over one single frequency at a time, the signal needs to switch to a different frequency if any interference happens. (source)
2.4GHz designs gobble up energy at a slower pace than Bluetooth mice. This means you won’t have to charge your mouse quite as often. Bluetooth is a known energy hog when activated on your computer, smartphone, or tablet, whereas a wireless connection does not require too much juice.
