Most of you guys probably know that you can wire your Dualshock 4 controller to your console if you have the CUH-ZCT2E (or V2) series. Since everyone is always trying to find an edge over the competition, I thought this would be an interesting topic to discuss.
There is a lot of debate going on whether it is actually beneficial for you to wire your controller opposed to just using the bluetooth connection. I know this sounds counterintuitive because wired is always better, right?
Apparantly, the polling rate of the bluetooth adapter in de DS4 is much higher than the polling rate of the USB connection. The USB connection would (again, counterintuitive) therefore have more input lag than the "normal" wireless bluetooth connection.
One argument that is made however, is that like with all wireless connections there is a chance of interference. Especially if you live in an apartment building for example, where there are countless routers and other transmitters that could cause interference on your bluetooth connection. In that case it could be worth it to go with the more stable wired connection at the cost of a little input lag.
My question to you is, what do you prefer to use and if you yourself have messed around with this, what are your experiences?
Disclaimer: I'm not a hardware professional, I do not know which option is in fact "better". I have not done the testing myself. I have no bias towards one or the other. I just want to share opinions and experiences.
