    Keyboards


    Can someone recommend a good Keyboard and Mouse for me. I have been using the Microsoft 3000 KB and The MS Wireless Mouse 5000 for quite a long time. I have a tendency to wear off the letters. This Combo seemed to last the longest for me. I was able to get the Combination at NewEgg for $28.00. But now they want $45.00 and other places want even more. Any advice would be appreciated.

    What type of Keyboard are you shopping for. I have a Corsair K40 with a generic Amazon mouse and I'm very happy.

    This one probably would be OK. I can still use the MS Mouse with it. Thanks Jeff

    Sure.. I don't see why not. I have a USB mouse and the Keyboard is a USB so they work fine together. I love the Keyboard.. it's a clicky and has a great feel and touch to it. Plus it lights up so that is a great feature.. well for me at least.

    My God, NewEgg wants $90.00 for this one. I think I will use Amazon...

    I like both very thin chiclet type keyboards and mechanical keyboards (kind of the two extremes).

    The two keyboards I have and am very happy with, have a good type feeling with (and therefore recommend) are these. But keyboards are a very personal thing imho, different people like very different keyboard feelings, before buying a keyboard I really encourage you to go try some out at a computer supermarket or shop close to you to know which ones feel right for YOU.

    The rapoo E9070 http://www.rapoo.com/ProductShow.asp...QK9AygpHU3E%3d

    The Quickfire XT with cherry brown switches (you can choose between different switches) http://gaming.coolermaster.com/en/pr...s/quickfirext/

    The rapoo e9070 is around 35$ on amazon, and the QuickfireXT around 90+$, but you can probably find it cheaper with deals elsewhere, I paid a lot less for it and it wasn't that long ago.

    Both of them are not back-light though.... that's the only minus point for me.

    Corsair's mechanical keyboards are supposed to be very good too... the K40 looks like a mechanical, but it's not, it has rubber dome keys, which is not necessarily bad, it just depends on what you want. The k40 looks very nice.

    I had a SteelSeries which was good until the paint started to come off the keys and they wanted me to pay to send it to Denmark for repair after only 10 months, since then bought a Logitech G510s which hasnt given me any problems at all. The mouse is also a Logitech G402 which hasnt gave me any problems.
    Both reasonably priced.
