My mouse died on me, really nice mouse. And I dont want to live off my temporary replacement. So I went to buy a new mouse and decided while I was at it to get a keyboard that isnt a 5 dollar keyboard.. I saw this wireless desktop that looked nice. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823126171
What does everyone think? Looks really nice to me, and the fact that it's on sale to 35 dollars is nice.
If you make any other suggestions make sure its keyboard and mouse, and that it stays under 35 dollars.
I have a very simlar set and if you're a gamer, the mouse isn't any good. I've noticed that wireless mice aren't all that good. Keyboards are fine but if you want your mouse to be very responsive, get a wired mouse.

yep, f-lock ****s, everyone knows it, everyone complains about it, and neither company does anything. its so simple to fix, just reverse the defaults so you have to press the flock key to use the extra functions. having to re-set the F keys every time you boot just to use the normal functions is absurd.
Person, in my experience the logitech wireless mice are better then M$, but the keyboards are not. Microsoft has much better built boards, theyre much sturdier and the keys feel a little better. some of logitechs keyboards are flimsy as can be, very possibly as is the one you linked. the board that came with the mx700 duo combo was horrid. i could snap it in two if i wanted to.
so i guess im saying buy a logitech mouse and a microsoft keyboard and just live with the extra receiver that will be needed. could be a more costly solution though.
how about this, since you seem to be living ok with your keyboard now, invest in a really decent mouse for $40? you wont be dissapointed, a good mouse can make all the difference...

Ditto, I haven't tried any MS keyboard but I have a Logitech Elite keyboard, and while it's not horrible, the keys feels more flimsy than the old $5 generic that came with my old computer. For a $50 CDN keyboard it's a bit hard to stomach.
The whole F-Lock thing annoyed me at first but I got used to it. And no way in hell I'd want to plug that thing in USB anyways

My wife got me the Microsoft Elite Desktop for Bluetooth for Christmas. I love it. I did have a problem with the mouse though while gaming. I got a USB extention cord and ran it to just under my monitor. Works great now. The keyboard rocks. Although, it does have the stupid F lock key. I agree, I dont like that at all. I love the wirelss thing though. This is the first time I have used Bluetooth as well. So far so good.

As stated above, I might as well just go ahead and get wired stuff. My brother wasnt real pleased with his wireless mouse because you had to move it so much for it to respond. And he couldnt aim well in games. Why I am also wanting a new keyboard is because this is a really old cheapo one. Such as about 4 years old. It has some keys getting stuck and stuff like that, its about done. I saw that wireless desktop at that lowered price and it looked pretty nice.
If you're looking for a nice quiet keyboard check out Microsoft's Digital Media Pro. I sell these at work with every new computer. They're the quietest keyboards I've ever used. And they're definitely the best wired keyboards Microsoft has ever made.
