    Default Help on ~40 keyboards & mice, please

    Well, title pretty much sums up what I am struggling to decide on.

    I fancy a new keyboard + mouse, with the mouse wireless preferably, even better if the keyboard is too.

    I like typing on laptop keyboards, as I think it's the shorter height of the keys, as opposed to the bulk standard 1cm high things ...

    Please do not go above 50, as I know people always try and squeeze a little bit more out of people on things like this.

    Cheers =)

    Life is good. Simples. Cccchhhhh.

    Do you mind slightly curved keyboards?

    Microsoft do a great thin wireless keyboard and mouse combi called Desktop 6000 - usually about 37, but the keyboard has a small 'natural' curve that's meant to make typing easier:

    I have that set. It's not bad but the reciever is a bit dodgy after a while as I have noticed and the batteries in the mouse seem to last no time at all!

    Nice find I am skeptical about using a curved one, even if it is slightly, as I use "normal" ones all the time.

    [mod edit:] Please do not quote images, thanks!

    Well i do believe Microsoft or Logitech would be the best bet. If you suddenly run into some extra cash, Saitek for their Eclipse II might not be too bad if you game. If gaming isnt what you have in mind, go back to Microsoft or Logitech then

    Hmm G15, it has bulky keys and I don't think I need a keyboard that urh "technical"

    Still can't knock it that it would be good if I was aiming for a gaming keyboard. But if I have a gaming keyboard I might be tempted more to not do my work and go on games ... need to try and reduce the distractions.

    That last one looks good. How long are wireless mice ment to last for as mine only last a couple of weeks (terrible advent set).

    Tbh I hate the Curve style keyboards. They feel a hell of a lot harder to type on to me. I'd recommend one of these if you don't want anything fancy:



    *Can't find a better picture*
    It's the ADVENT ADE-WD1. It's a very nice feeling wireless mouse and keyboard. I've had mine for 3 years now and never had any problems, and I've used it with my PC, PS2, PS3, friend's laptop and friend's computer. I don't know how much it is now, but I bought it for 20 in Maplins in 2005 (or 2006, can't remember, pretty sure it was 2005 though).

    Thats exactly what I have. The mouse is terrible, battary life is shocking and the laser isn't very good as it can't move in a stright line, really annoying when trying to highlight a line of text.

    I used to have a 9.99 LabTec set.

    Wireless Optical mouse and Wireless keyboard. Was brilliant! It had all the buttons you'd need, inbuild media player controller.

    The only reason why I no longer use it is because I have a new set (Reclusa and Habu)

    If you don't like the curve, that Logitech S520 bundle looks good. Another one is the LX710 bundle - keyboard is usual thickness unfortunately, but you get a nicer mouse and media keys:

    I've got this one, the curve takes about a week to get used to. Sometimes the reciver plays up but its nothing major and the mouse is about 2.5m away from it and so is the keyboard.

    If I had a 70 budget Id get this and a mouse - http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/794604...k/Product.html

    I want the keyboard in the S520, but not the mouse, and no where sells it without the mouse

    The G15 is 54 and the G9 is 40, so if I wanted only a mouse, that would be perfect

    I'm sorry, but there is only one contender here. The Logitech Wave.



    Linky - 39.99

    I have that exact one, and even though I use an MX1000 instead of the packaged mouse, its all wireless, all works, and looks wonderful. And don't be put off by the fact its curvy - you will get used to using it very quickly, and I find it so much easier to touch type on this than any other keyboard. Buy one now. And yes it doesn't have laptop style keys, but I don't see why they are better - they are so much harder to use!
