    Wireless Keyboard & Mouse

    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a fairly good wireless keyboard and mouse (preferablly in silver/black colour) to buy...?

    I had bought one from ebay about a month ago and the optical mouse has just packed in Ebuyer its pretty poor quality, but then again I only paid £11 for it!!!

    Is there any good sites that do reviews on wireless keyboards/mouse bundles??

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I would go for the MS Wireless Elite, it's fantastic and only costs about £55 from ebuyer.

    Check out the review.

    Thanks for the reply, will have a look at this.

    Seems a bit lot of money for just a keyboard and mouse, but then I guess you get what you pay for....

    What about this one from aria.net

    Yeah you totally get what you pay for in the end, the keyboard and mouse are fantastic for games and general use.

    Pay the extra bit of money then at least you will know that what you are using is the best thing for the job.

    MX Desktop is the daddy. The MX700 is the best cordless mouse and the keyboard is nice too.

    I just bought a new wireless KB/mouse. Its ok. I got it b/c Im starting to get Carpal Tunnel from typing, etc. The problem is I dont like how they moved the Home & End keys (look above arrow keys)
    Normally its 3 wide x 2 high, they changed the layout to 2 wide x 3 high and it has thrown off my typing as I use home & end all of the time. they should have move the Page Up & Page Down keys as I think they are used less.

    Overall its very nice looking, but hasnt seemed to help my Carpal Tunnel.


    Logitech Ergo Wireless DUO or something like that

    heh i sold one of those Chic KB things a while ago on ebay, they were appauling KB/mice sets imho, especially when you have an M$ optical desktop..get the bluetooth one from o verclockers, £100 but its damn cool =) or if you dont have stupid amounts of money get what i have, the MS optical desktop OEM, about £30 from dabs. Best KB/mouse combo i've ever had and wipes the floor with the logitech ones. or just goto PC world and try them both out, i hated the logitech ones, not a bit fan of M$ as a company but damn they make quality KBs =)
