Hi everyone i am looking into purchasing a gaming mouse, mouse pad and a gaming keyboard.
I have a few that i found but i would like your recommendations. The budget that i have set aside for the mouse is no more than 70 dollars. As for a keyboard not over 100 it doesn't have to be mechanical. Also for the mousepad none over 20 i am not wasting that much just for a mousepad.
Also i apoligize in advance for the wall of text incoming.
Okay i will start with what i found as far as mice.
** all things considered, a little pricey for what it is. i have one and it works fine for all of the tasks i throw at it. you must download the drivers off the internet as they do not give you an install disk. the mouse is also a bear to keep clean as the rubber surface attracts dust and you can only clean it with water or other inert liquid. do not use a solvent of any kind or you will be sorry. if you take care of it then it should last you awhile. use a coupon or buy it on sale.
Razer Naga Special
**see above. i think that this many buttons would be worse than not having enough. to each their own though.
** i do not have one but it is another commonly recommended mouse. logitech normally has some pretty good bang for the buck and as a company i do recommend them.
Next up is the keyboard that i have found.
The microsoft sidewinder x4
**dont know much about this model
** i was in need of a keyboard so i purchased one about a month ago. the cherry mx blue keyswitches arent bad at all but the gloss surface was impossible to keep clean. i ended up returning it and am going to buy a unicomp customizer instead.
**personally i wouldnt go with anything but $5 foamrubber & cloth mousepad in flat black. i dont get why people are willing to pay $20 or more on mousepads when they are not superior in any way. your choice.
you might want to have a look at office mice and office keyboards. just because products are tagged gaming means nothing. i used a logitech mx1000 mouse and keyboard set for many years and it is meant for office work. in fact, it is 9 years old and still works (and its wireless).
