A peripheral device or auxiliary device, is generally defined as any device that connects to and works with the computer in some way; a piece of computer hardware such as a disk drive, printer, or modem used in conjunction with a computer and under the computer’s control. Peripheral devices are usually physically separate from the computer and connected to it by wires or cables.

You can break peripherals down into obvious distinctions – internal (such as storage devices) or external (pretty much everything else). You can also break them down by function: storage, output (monitors and printers) and input (scanners, keyboard, and mouse). There are four other ways to categorize peripherals: physical connection, virtual connection, shared, and dedicated.
