    New K/Board and Mouse

    After recently re-decorating the Pc room, the wife decided I could have a new k/board and mouse.
    I asked for the Logitech Di Novo bluetooth set and told her the price.
    Anyway, she only went and bought it for me
    What a piece of kit, fantastic.
    I had the MX700 mouse before and it was great, but this feels even better.
    Here is a link to it

    Talking of keyboards I need a new one for my new build.

    Any one got any ideas for a good keyboard, beige, with quiet keys (Don't like tap-tap-tap all the time)
    I don't wanna spend a lot £30 - 40 max.

    Not looking for any hot keys or dodgy MS "natural" layout versions where it looks like someone has melted the keyboard and then bent it into a "V"

    Cheers all !

    ThanX

    You don't know the wife
    My beige keyboard was more like grey so a new one was required.
    It required a bit of reverse psychology, but it was worth it.
    She didn't believe that I would be able to wash the old keyboard off, she thought it would bugger up the comp

    Looks very nice - after a new cordless optical mouse myself. Do you think the bluetooth is better than than the wireless ? Might be tempted to go for the mx900 over the mx700 altho I haven't got any other bluetooth gear at the moment..

    The Mx900 is as good as, if not better than, the Mx700.
    The first couple of times you use it the battery doesn't last long (1 1/2 days) but after a couple of full charges it lasts as long as the MX700
    The only slight gripe with it is when you start-up it takes a second before it is recognised, but tbh it's a minor fault.
    Another thing that takes some getting used to, is that the keyboard will go into sleep mode if not used for a while (to conserve batteries) and when you go to use it there is a slight delay and then it works ok.
    The media pad is rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishe hot and works from downstairs as a remote

    Sleek - that looks like a well nice bit of kit.

    I cleaned my beige boring keyboard today, it looked dirty enough but when I pried the keys off it was really disgusting under there.

    Then I lost the Z key for about half an hour and went mental looking for it
