    Which Keyboard n Mouse?

    I need a new keyboard and mouse, as my sisters mouse crapped out and I spilled juice on my keyboard so the keys are sticky (lol).

    Anyway, I have a limit of £30 (only spending over if justified).

    I would like a cordless setup, but I do play alot of games so I dont mind a corded mouse and cordless keyboard.

    Anyhelp would be nice I dont know NOTHING about this!

    Cordless is rubbish for games - the batteries will last like 3 hours - trust me i have tried 2 wireless setups.

    I have the Zboard / logitech G15 iwith the G5 mouse.. perfect! but thats almost £75 the pair!

    The G5 is frankly awesome, especially now I've paired it with a fUnc 1030, its just fantastic.

    well as the G5 is thenewer model of the older 518MX with an extra 400dpi on the mouse, save the cash and get the 518mx I did and don't regret it, best mouse ever owned. If you are wanting a keyboard for typing and playing games then get the best of both worlds and have a look for the Microsoft Natural 4000 keyboard, order should come to about £40 and you will get a good setup Works great for games

    Some great choices there.

    I've found that Keyboard and mice choices are sort of a personal experience really. One person's ideal equipment maybe another's nightmare, but the above choices are very good

    Personally, I have a G15, Sharkoon, Cherry Keyboard like This one and use an MX700 cordless mouse which soon should be replaced as its wireless, getting old and quite dirty now

    I've got the same keyboard as Carlh, but I've paired it with a Razer DiamondBack Plasma, can't fault either of them.

    I originally bought a blutooth wireless setup of Kb and mouse. My experience is stay away from bluetooth if ur going cordless esp. for the keyboard. The technology is just too prone to interference and if you play a lot of games it will really get annoying.

    I now run a corded logitech keyboard and an RF cordless MX1000 mouse, which is expensive but totally worth it!

    A lot of people on here have the saitek keyboard and are happy with it.

    As for the mouse, I cannot comment as it's something I've not used at all I'm afraid.

    Best Regards,

    Yeah, checked up some reviews on the Satiek mouse and TBH not very good. 6-7 out of 10.

    The MX518 looks tasty but kills my budget. Ill see for a cheap keyboard now though lol.
