Hi, :hello: 

I game alot 2 to 6 hours a day, I'm retired. I love my 8+ year old Microsoft Natural Keyboard PRO. It is split down the Middle, this is perfect for gaming it requires less searching for the middle keys when thinking of just one key to press.

In many games T=Target H=drink Health potion Y=look backwards in World of WarCraft gives you a 180deg camera turn you can see what your running from and IF they are still there. This is a plus for Kids who can't remember the keyboard layout.


Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 $39.99 [wireless $89.99]

Is the keyboard for gaming purposes, or for general use? The reason I ask is a left handed controller is much better to game on than a keyboard.

The Logitech G13 and Razer Nostromo n52 are great left handed controllers.

everything depends on your son's preferences and what type of games are being played.

wasd or arrow keys for movement?
shooter games, strategy games, mmo games, or other?

in general you can not go wrong with logitech products for the price, but of course everyone has their own preferences.

i prefer to use the arrow keys and athough i shift the keyboard off center to the left i have had no issues using a standard keyboard.

They are great, but I guess I should mention one thing. If your son isn't patient enough to set up a profile at the start of a new game, he might not use it. Otherwise, it's great to use one. I'm using the G13.

I just upgraded to that mouse last week. I really like it. The charging and battery life could use work, but it's still great.

If he's going Logitech, he may like the latest and greatest gaming keyboard they offer, the G710. It's a mechanical keyboard that has some programmable keys. That said, I'd rather use just what ever keyboard you find comfortable with a cheap price, and use a G13 or Razer Nostromo n52 (I use the G13 because with Lua coding, I can do things way beyond what should be possible).
