There are actually two ways to connect a keyboard to your computer or laptop. First is via serial port which is the conventional type of connection used by many computer users and all computers are equipped with ports that are specially designed to connect a keyboard. Another option is to connect it via USB port and this is known as a USB Computer Keyboard. When you want to use a USB keyboard then you have to make sure that your computer has at least one free USB slot for your keyboard.

Are you aware that A USB Computer Keyboard actually offers more advantages as compared to serial port keyboards? Without a doubt! In this article, we are going to discuss about these advantages and why do a lot of people opt to use a USB type rather than the serial port type.

The first advantage it offers is that they are very easy to use and you do not need any software to install. You simply need to plug it in the USB slot and you can automatically or instantly use it. It is simply a plug-n-play device. And in case you unintentionally disconnected the keyboard from your computer you can simply plug it back and use it again. When you use a serial type and then you accidentally disconnected the keyboard then you need to restart the computer for it to recognize the device attached.

Another advantage is that you will have more placement options. Computers and laptops usually have more than two USB ports and they are located at the back of the CPU at times you can find a USB port in front of the CPU. So when you are having problems with short cords then you can simply plug it in the USB port that is in front the CPU.

Last but not the least advantage A USB Computer Keyboard offers is the wireless capability. Not all USB keyboards are wireless, but you can find other brands that are wireless and they are very advantageous because there are individuals who do not want to sit very close and in front of the computer or laptop for a very long period of time. So basically, if you use a wireless device it will allow you to have access on your computer even from a distance. These are only some of the advantages this type of keyboard offers. If you want to see it for yourself then you should try one.
