I've been using the MX 3S mouse for quite some time which I really like, and recently bought the MX keys.

Since I connected it to the PC the mouse lags from time to time and the keyboard doesn't respond every here and there and the backlight starts blinking.

Anyone ever experienced the same or knows of a solution?

Love the power!!!

FYI: Try building your own computer with comparable specs, (or pay someone) for a fraction of the cost...

Yes.
That makes sense. If you switch to the USB you shouldn't have those issues.

Is it an issue to pair both to the same USB?

Probably whatever is cheaper
+1, almost always.

We talking about a 2.5" SSD? Absolutely whatever is cheapest, and there are more brands to choose from.
An M2 is more nuanced but in a general sense whatever is cheapest, too.

A quote regarding brands:
Quote
Top brands include Acer, PNY, Samsung, Timetec, Sandisk, HP, Kingston, MSI, Crucial, Mushkin, Intel (now Solidigm), Sabrent, and Western Digital. Tier 2 brands (fine for cheap drives but maybe avoid if you are getting a big one that is expensive) include Team Group, Silicon Power, Inland (this is Micro Centerís brand), Addlink, Patriot, Lexar, Orico. Note that even Tier 1 companies make cheap drives and good drives, with a wide difference in performance and even longevity.
Specs that matter include the warranty Ė compare drives regarding the TBW rating to determine the life expectancy of the drive. There is a big difference between a cheap drive rated for 300TBW and an expensive one rated for 1500TBW. Users generally donít come close to this, but if you write large files on to the drive constantly, donít get one with a low TBW rating.
Speed is the next thing to compare. SATA III drives are as close to identical as not to matter. NVME 3.0 drives can be budget (1500MBps to 2300MBPs) or faster (in the range of 3000MBps). NVME 4.0 drives are sometimes barely faster than 3.0 (3500MBps, which I just list in the 3.0 section), or 4000-5000MBps, which I call budget 4.0. Or the classy, expensive ones can go as high as the 7000MBps range. Donít get these last ones without a heat sink or some other way to keep them cool.
