    Gaming keyboard and mice

    I am buying a new cordless keyboard and probably also a mice, my Logitech NX60 is working fine but something doesn’t feel right anymore.

    I will use it for games but comfort is key, logitech seems a obvious choice but i am not sure about the model.

    So what u think i should get?

    Well I wanted comfort, soft keypressing and not extra bits I'll never use....

    I bought the Logitech Media Elite keyboard and the Logitech G5 mouse. Both are wired, but I'd have thought that there is a wireless version of the keyboard and the wireless version of the mouse is the G7.
    The keyboard does infact come with lots of buttons I will not use, but at about £15 instead of the £60 I was going to pay just for a keyboard with not extra buttons what so ever it's fine.

    Look around on www.scan.co.uk at their range, they have a lot of nice ones.

    I also hate all those useless bits on the keyboard but i still remember the last time i bought a cheap one... to be honest my previous mice is still great but it lost some sensitivity

    Hahaha, sorry man I mis-read the post, let's try again:

    Logitech G7.

    Logitech MX1000.

    As for a cordless keyboard, Scan have a rather small selection so I'll leave that to someone else.

    EDIT: Might as well post the one Scan do offer - Microsoft MCE.

    looking at a new gaming board and was thinking of this...........

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=420023

    or this

    http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/98761

    has anybody used one and what are they like? thinking of it purely because of the butterfly and gaming keys are close together in one easy ares so even my fingers can reach them all (left hand not the most nimble fingers in the world).

    I have the second one with the BF2 keyset, it's fantastic, incredibly comfy and it looks wicked too. Honestly though I think you might be better of getting a 'Fang' pad and a nice normal keyboard thats really comfy for typing/has great features.
