    Good Wireless KB & Mouse for SFF PC?

    My new machine sits in my front room next to my TV, i'm after an unobtrusive KB & Mouse to sit alongside it.

    I bought a 'Trust' wireless kit from ASDA (£14.97) of all places http://www.trust.com/products/product.aspx?artnr=14627, looks good & is nice & small/neat but the range is awful & the build quality is something you'd expect from a £15 setup!
    I have a MS bluetooth mouse which is fantastic & am tempted to go all bluetooth for this, how much am I looking at considering I want to keep it as cheap as possible?!

    Any suggestions or anyone selling one?!

    Thanks,

    Rob

    I've got one of these I use for my SFF and LCD TV, its range is ok for our living room (10ft+) - works on rf usb - got a laptop style mouse pad too. Tends to get through AAA bateries quickly though. Great functionality, and very unobtrusive.

    Hope this helps,

    That's exactly the one I was going to suggest. I just ordered it from Newegg.com for me here in the states. I should get it on Monday. I plan on using my SFF pc with my home theater system so not having to deal with a mouse is a big plus.

    Another nice one would be the GO 2.4 Optical Air Mouse (Gyro) and Compact Keyboard Suite. The web address is gyration DOT com. I'm new here so cannot post the actual url. Check it out.

    Agree

    Been using one of them for quite a while infact using it right now on my media centre & Sony X series tv. The best I've ever used for this type of thing got a nice key action aswell.

    Nice idea, would like to be able to have a blast with game too though so not sure it'd work! Looks like the best solution for browsing/HTP use though! Hmmm i'll have to think about that!

    Rob one final note - if you do go for this: obstructions between the keyboard and receiver make quite a difference; there's a noticable change in quality of reception (less dropped keystrokes, more accurate mouse tracking) when it's in a front USB port.

    I have one of these:

    It's a really nice set, but you need a mousing surface. If you don't have the space, get that one above. I'm tempted now actually.

    Guess i can always use my BT mouse when i want to game!
    Crappy RF B/Mouse i got before were useless at 1metre, even put the receiver high up on the same level as them! Might try this if i can stump £30 for it!
