    So I'm wondering what the best keyboard mouse combo is, that is currently available. I have the thermaltake keyboard and mouse and it turned out to be the biggest POS i've ever owned.

    I saw the Microsoft Wireless optical desktop elite at the store the other day and loved it, but I don't think I have any need for wireless?? I'd rather not spend money on batterys ever month or two if i'm not gonna use the wireless feature. Do they make that combo in as a normal keyboard and mouse, with wires and all? Otherwise does anyone else have any suggestions or reasons why I should just get wireless?

    I've had the logitech cordless duo for a few years now. Never any problems. I plan on upgrading my mouse to the mx1000 after xmas though. :dunno:

    I like it though

    :werd: I have had awesome experiences with Logitech's Cordless Elite Duo.
    Batteries aren't that bad as long as you buy the NiMH rechargeables and charger.

    I hate keyboards with all sorts of extra buttons and things, they just get in my way. I have a cheapo $15 keyboard, plain beige with just the normal keys and a Logitech MX510. They both work perfectly for me.

    I wouldnt mind some super leet keyboard and mouse combo.

    My computer is medium spec, its in an old case.. You instantly think its shit, till you boot it up. Why do computers have to look pretty nowadays?

    Definately never buying a thermaltake keyboard, ever. My current one has all the F keys miswired, buttons pop out of place, and it feels like a piece of shit in general. I'll look into the logitech. I don't like how the microsoft mouses scroll so smoothly. I think it will be hard in first person action games. Am I wrong?

    An old IBM keyboard (the one that clicks real loud)? Or a Microsoft Natural.

    I think i've decided on the mx510 for a mouse...like I said, no need for wireless. I might just go to the store and pick up a basic keyboard. I'd rather have all the features on my mouse, as opposed to the keyboard. I hate looking down on the keyboard for shit.
