I worked in a place that thought cordless mice and keyboards would be
best. Instead they went through tons of batteries, and mice and
keyboards were dropped and broken! Batteries would die, when most
needed it seems! The receiver would get knocked out of the line of
sight of the mouse. This particular keyboard had no lights indicating
caps and num lock were on/off. I can see little, if any, benefit to
wireless peripherals.
