    Picture quality of Wireless Display Adapter

    I am finally getting a monitor for my SP3 and trying to figure out if I can get away with connecting via a WDA. I will be using Photoshop/Lightroom and will have a nice monitor so I want to maximize the resolution. Is there any difference in a wired and a wireless connection? Thanks!
