Why do people want a wired remote ?
It is not directional and costs the same and I can change the batteries if needed. Oh, and it has a fairly versatile intervalometer.

See my review: Bower LCD Timer and Remote Shutter Release (Model RCLC1R) reviews - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database

I'm not sure what's wrong with just using a wireless remote to open and then later shut the shutter. Why do people want a wired remote ?
I have only the wireless remote, but I'm always thinking I will lose it some day, it's so small and light. I try to remember to always put it in my pocket when not using it, but I have laid it down a few times and had trouble remembering where I put it. It is really tiny. A wired remote would be a LOT less likely to lose, I will probably get one as a backup some day. I do like the wireless though, and it can be used from the front or back on a K-5 (and K-3 too I believe).

I got a wireless remote for ninety two cents free shipping - from China on Evilbay. How they sell things so cheap and make a profit I'll never know.
