    Bluetooth and wireless mice and keyboards

    Are there more than one standards for control of peripherals like mice and keyboards.

    Is Bluetooth just a more common specification or are all such devices bluetooth?

    Just Curious

    Bryan,

    Actually it is rather hard to find Bluetooth mice and keyboards, at least in my experience. I did have one, mouse only, on my last laptop and it was very nice, however it was also very expensive in relation to the ones that use the little USB receivers. You can see my post elsewhere in this forum on my new Logitech KBD/Mouse combo that uses their new unifying receiver that is very small and runs both devices.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    My wife has a Bluetooth mouse (I had same in past) a Microsoft Wireless Bluetooth 5000. I now have a Logitech Anywhere MX mouse. Both worked fine. The Logitech is almost identical to what RG uses. I also found many more of the types that use the small USB receiver. I only found the one type of Bluetooth. Mine was working but the on/off switch was worn and made it difficult to turn on or off.

    Is there such a thing as a universal nano reciever. I have a MS touch mouse and want a replacement nano reciever without buying another mouse.
