Quick Question. I just bought a wireless keyboard, a Logitech K320, on Newegg because I couldn't find a wired design that was on the cheap side, was standard, and had a normal button layout (no short backspace, for instance). However, I am trying to decide if that was a bad decision.. Will there be any noticeable lag when doing, well, anything, from gaming to web browsing? The mouse is wired, so that wouldn't interfere..

No, wireless keyboards are perfectly fine. You do not notice the delay at all unlike some wireless mouses. I would prefer a wireless keyboard over a wired one any day. In my opinion it's all positives, and no negatives.

Alright, thanks! I figure Logitech is a pretty good company, anyway.

I have a wireless keyboard and mouse, and after 3 years' experience with the two, it seems to really depend what batteries you have in them. Using cheap batteries DOES seem to affect both the mouse and keyboard(the mouse in incredibly slow to respond and mis clicks constantly, whereas the keyboard doesn't enjoy certain buttons being pressed...). As long as you have some decent batteries (for example, Energizer Lithium) you should be okay!

Is this when you game, or in general? What kind of keyboard do you use?

There are settings you can configure for the mouse and keyboard.

Okay.. But what would changing the settings do for latency? I guess what I'm really trying to ask is if there will be any noticeable lag when playing games with it. I would've bought wired, but I could not find a design that I liked and was cheap as well! I may just use this Dell wired one I'm using right now..

I was into competitive FPS gaming for a couple of years, and I had used a wireless keyboard for a decent portion of that. It never caused me any problems, and as long as you consistently replace your batteries you will never experience any real noticeable lag. I don't think you should worry about it at all, and worse comes to worse, when you get it you'll be able to see for yourself whether or not you can tell a difference.
