Help to choose keyboard & mouse

Hello all!

I am about to buy new keyboard and mouse, although I don't really know which one to pick. And of course I am not really familiar with the wireless keyboards or either mice. Therefore I decided to ask the community, which one would you advice to buy?

So far I have used A4Tech mouse X-718BF which has been actually the best mouse I had, therefore I was considering going for A4Tech as well for the mouse, although I am not sure, maybe you have any better offers?

And about the keyboard, I'd say that I haven't really used any good ones, just some random ones what usually come with the PCs.

Waiting for the help and thanks as well!

    Mouse Logitech MX 518 = a no brainer
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104178
    Been using the original version for 6+ years ,indestructible and still functions like the day i bought it.

    Keyboard - Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823109149
    Doesn't look like much but is probably the best overall kb i've ever used.
    Built like a tank and does everything well.5+ years

    Both units are built to last and i've never had an issue with either after years of use.
    Makes a great low budget gaming combo.
    No surprise NCIX sells these two units as a combo.
  3. This Logitech mouse has like 1800 DPI but A4Tech ones have like 3000 DPI, that's why I guess I rather like more sensitive mouse. But keyboard looks great. Any more opinions?
  4. Hi,
    Answer me these questions three... What is your budget? What is the size of your hands? What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow... : )>

    the reason I ask about your hands is because if you're anything like me and have mugo huge hands, I caution you to stay away from "compact" keyboards...

    some good brands to look at in the mean time are Logitech, Razor (though I've heard they've been a point of contention here), Saitek (which is actually Mad Catz... but they make good stuff), Micro$oft, and I've actually had some luck with Rosewill...

    I use a MX 518v1 that's 1600dpi and a Razer DeathAdder 3500dpi for gaming and notice no advantage whatsoever with higher dpi.
    I find higher sensitivity unuseable tbh.
    And your mouse is 2000dpi btw.

    I guess I am not going for the cheapest one but as well I am not going for like €100 one. :D So between that. And my hands are somewhat medium size and default keyboards are working for me pretty fine.

    What I wanted to say is that I was planning to buy this one, which is even 3600:

  7. And what's the difference between Laser and Optical, I mean is there a big difference? Mainly used only optical ones.
