    Sub £30 Keyboard & Mouse

    Hello again,

    Just wondering what you people would recommend for a cheap yet good keyboard and mouse bundle.

    I've only ever used 'expensive' peripherals, and now my budget is alot lower, i'm a bit lost with all the choice in the lower end of the market.

    I did want wireless again (Microsoft Arc previously) but I'm not too sure on the quality at that price. Any thoughts on the Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 at £33.49 from amazon?

    Logitech or Microsoft if possible, just had good experience with their products and customer services before.

    Need to order soon, so any help would be appreciated

    Thanks

    It's 4.98*

    Saitek K60 is a decent cheap basic keyboard, come in red, silver or pink

    Great mouse, that Gigabyte. Took it to the LAN with me, and didn't miss my G5 at all, which cost a fortune more when I bought it a few years back.

    Depending on whether you want to spend more on the keyboard or mouse I just got one of these for my rents after owning the wireless version and its very nice:

    I'm a logitech man myself, bullet proof build quality. Chuffed to bit with my LX710 wireless keyboard and mouse set, but it was £37 from memory so possibly over budget (and I'm not sure it's available any more). The MK320 seems to be the in budget equivalent - no reviews kicking around though
