    Need help with choosing a matching mouse for the Saitek Cyborg Keyboard ...

    Hi, I want to buy a new Saitek Cyborg Keyboard and a matching mouse to go with my orange Acer G24 monitor, but absoulutely hate the design of the Cyborg mouse, so thats a no no.

    I am considering the following three options:

    Green Diamondback 3G

    Red Diamonback 3G

    Deathadder Guild Wars edition - (Its not blue, its orange)

    I'm not to sure why the Red one is so much more expensive then the green. From what I have seen, either the Green and Red Diamondbacks will make a good match as the Keyboard had green and red lighting, but I am a Guild Wars fan and the Deathadder is a better mouse and rather well priced, but it doesnt seem to be the same color as the Saitek keyboards amber.

    This is the monitor I have http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=14311

    It seems that the Guild Wars mouse will be a nice match as it is a very similar color, but it might be a terrible clash with the keyboard, so I am a little lost for deciding as I cant see the keyboard and its various lights against the mice before buying.

    What a day and age we live in with computers where we get to buy snazzy glowy keyboards and mice to decorate our desktops with =D.

    I did originally want to buy the Guild Wars mouse when it was released, but back then it was too expensive. But now the Razor Diamondback 3G's look flashier so I cant quite decide which one to buy still

    Please help me decide, what I would like, if possible, is pictures of the keyboard in its three different backlights to help me decide, if anyone can find these then that would be great.

    Thanks.

    I know this is off the point.... but do they really have to match? lol?

    I'd say the flame red one.
    Scan FTW

    Yea, they have too because I dont like clashes, although my PC is still blue which now makes it obsolete!!!

    Thats right, the colour blue is obsolete.

    Anyone at scan have any info on when this keyboard will be in stock? Lets say I have found it elswhere for £1 less with free delivery, so, erm ... I'm tempted. The Red Diamondback is also rather overpriced, they shouldnt cost any more then the other ones, but the other two mice are well priced, as is the keyboard. Its just out of stock though

    I found a good picture here which shows all three colours:



    The Amber on the WASD would go nicely with the GW one: (the backlights can be configured however you like)



    I think I'll settle on those two, but there's no stock on the keyboard

    Its all ordered - the mouse from Scan, keyboard from here. Didn't need much more help then an hour of googling.

    The keyboard is back in stock now, I suppose that the Scan folk were asleep when I first asked about it at 9PM.
