Need a new Keyboard and Mouse

Hi, I am a new member here, I have been lurking forever though. Anyway, I need a new keyboard and mouse, both are deciding to kick the bucket at the same time on me. Keyboard has to be under $100 as well as the mouse. I game and do a lot of 3d design work. I would like a backlit keyboard with some extra macro keys if possible. I am not a big fan of logitech also. I have no clue what new keyboards and mice are out and what are even any good. Can you help?

  1. Hello,

    I'm with DSI and we have a few choices that would probably do the job for you.

    This keyboard is nice because of the mechanical cherry switches: http://www.notestation.com/kb-modmac-umodularmackeyboard.htm
    Although it's a 'mac' keyboard, all of the functions still work flawlessly on the keyboard.

    This keyboard is nice with all of the functions, and also has a touchpad: http://www.notestation.com/wireless-pc-keyboard-W1100.htm

    This one is also really nice: http://www.notestation.com/wirelesskeyboardwithtrackballkb-rk-768.htm

    Let me know if you have any questions. Have a good one!
  2. Any particular reason that you do not like Logitech? I would hate for you to dismiss Logitech because of a single past bad experience or something, as they make some of the (if not THE) best keyboards and mice.

    The only other name that pops into my head for backlit keyboards is the Saitek eclipse series.

    Other brands for mice would be Razer and Microsoft.
  3. For backlit with macro keys, the Logitech G11 would be an excellent choice. If you are willing to get a logitech keyboard, it fits your request perfectly.
  4. I have the saitek eclipse keyboard and would highly recommend it. The backlit keys have 3 settings and it comes with a decent wrist rest.

    This is one of my favorite mice. Yes, it's logitech, but they do make some of the better mice.

    Why would he like Logitech? Their products are crap. They are overhyped and overpriced. I've had Logitech mice just die and one I just bought would not even work at all. Their stuff is garbage.

    Ever heard of the logitech g5 or g7? They are widely known as some of the best mice available. I personally have the logitech mx518 and it's a great mouse.
  7. I have currently been using my Logitech G15(Generation 2) and Logitech G9 Mouse for nearly a year now, and I am loving them, so much so that I bought a second pair just in case I spill something on my keyboard. I am a definite fan of Logitech though, without a shadow of a doubt. The customizeable keys on the G15 are useful for laying down admin commands in Counter Strike, and I use the side keys of the G19 to speak in vent/TS. The G9 mouse also has a quick toggle of sensitivity to the point where I have to make a broad stroke to go across my screen, to the point where I twitch it and it goes flying across both my screens and beyond. Which is very helpful when your doing fine work in Photoshop, Paint, or whatever you do that needs precision. I would definitely recommend them to you as they are extremely well made.

  8. Bradley,

    I recently purchased a DSI RK768 and it loses its connection to the USB tranceiver after a few minutes of inactivity. I've not been able to find a way to reconnect it without getting up, taking the keyboard to the computer, pressing the button on the USB transceiver, then pressing the button on the back of the keyboard.

    Is there a way to reconnect it without getting up and walking over to the computer?

    Thanks,

    -Joe
