Default Wired vs Wireless keyboard

Is it really that significant? I dont have a wired keyboard to compare but I feel like I get goods in places Im spot on. And I can play on my crummy laptop from early 2000s and aside from it being choppy framerate, nail everything step for step.

Will any wired keyboard be a significant upgrade or do I have to spend the money and get something higher end?

Personally, I doubt that there is a noticeable difference between Wired v Wireless; though I have always used Wired because I consider them more reliable and on another computer I have there is a wireless mouse and keyboard that runs out of battery life too quickly and it's rather annoying.

Wireless peripherals tend to have a little extra delay to them.

Any recommendations on a wired one? Or aside from any ghosting issues on a cheap keyboard is that the way to go? Id hate to have to remap my keys to deal with ghosting if it became an issue.

As far as keyboards go, it's more of a preference of what exact keyboard people like to use for Rhythm Gaming, but that aside any keyboard works for gaming in general.

I use an $8 ONN Wired Keyboard and I'm doing just fine except one key setup got smashed enough to where one of the keys occasionally drops a miss which is fine because I have a new setup anyways, and for other gaming it gets the job done (although with certain games it is more ideal to have a Mech KB). Wireless imo is just for convenience and I feel like being Wireless attributes to nothing relevant to the usage of the keyboard except for what has been stated thus far.

I only like to recommend mechanical keyboards nowadays, but they can get pretty expensive.

I switched from a wireless kb that came with my all-in-one desktop to a wired keyboard a few months ago because my setups started ghosting randomly after awhile, and it works great. it was only like $20 when i got it on newegg though v.v

Wireless has definitely low reaction rate than wired. at least it was that I tried.

I don't recommend using a wireless keyboard for anything ever... unless you want to google porn from bed.
