    They both look up to the task and the kb has some good reviews on OCUK. The mouse has only 3 buttons though and is aimed at the MOBA crowd more than fps games if thats what you play.

    Re: Advice on Keyboard and mouse

    I would have a peek at the Logitech G402 as a mouse to consider, seeming as the earlier Logitech G400 did so well for many pro players in the eSports community.
    For the keyboard, the Zalman ZM-K500 as you've already shortlisted looks like a great buy!

    Re: Advice on Keyboard and mouse

    You can find the non-chroma, 2013 razer deathadder for around £40 and it is in my opinion the best mouse shape ever made. I have tried a lot of mice in the past including:

    Rat 9
    Gigabyte Uranium
    Gigabyte Aivia M8600
    Steelseries sensei
    Logitech G5
    Logitech G700
    Razer Lachesis
    Razer Ouroboros
    Corsiar M60

    YMMV, I have rather large hands and mouse shape is personal preference. If you are based around Bolton, Scan usually have a good selection to try in store, if not, PC World have started carrying some of the more popular ones and again can be tried in store.

    Logitech G500 has served me well. You can adjust the weight. Should be ok for large hands.

    Re: Advice on Keyboard and mouse

    for the mouse there's nothing better than actually trying them out at a shop. Everyone has different shaped hands. I've not found one better than my old logitech MX lazer, so even though it doesn't have a 'user replaceable' battery I've dismantled both my home and work mouse about to fit a new battery in it.

    Depending on the size of your hands I can recommend the Corsair M95 although the button placement takes some getting used to
