    Default Thinking about cordless keyboard/mouse, and in need to have a few points cleared...

    I've been playing with the idea of having a cordless keyboard and mouse, and now I've nearly set myself on it (unless urge to upgrade a cellfone or to get set of Spyderco sharpening stones would prevail). However, before whiping a wallet away, I'd be gratefull, if someone could educate me over a few details.

    1. I've set my eye upon one of a Logitech's kits. Used their mice, and they were good and reliable. Plus -- they are commonly availible in Russia. Are Logitech's keyboards alright, or it's advisable to look wor other brands?
    2. One pro for a kit idea, is that I belive they'd be less prone to... undesired interacting (like when the keyboard reciver catches a mouse's signal...). Is this something to consider. Could something like this happen when I have a Thrustmaser wireless gamepad?
    3. Would a laser mouse have a noticable edge over optical one? I'm not a cyber-sportsman, but sometimes enjoy a 3D-shooter... Right now I like an LX 500 kit

    because of a rechargable mouse, but if laser one in a MX3000 Laser
    http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...ONTENTID=10709
    is a serious step ahead, I think I could live with having to buy some extra batteries...

    That seem to be all at the moment.

    Thanks beforehand!!!

    Wireless keyboard and mouse is great, Logitech is decent.
    Don't get the logitech G7 laser, it is not the best product of logitech.
    you won't have any problem or whatsoever regarding to signal interference, it won't happen. The laser mouse is the most accurate and get laser mouse that is intended for gaming, becuase those mice won't have delay after some short idle time in order to save power. Also buy rechargeable batrries and save money.

    Also don't throw away you PS/2 keyboard and mouse, they will come handy later.

    Haha. Seeing as the discussion is already going... is there much of an advantage to getting one of these hi-DPI mice if you don't really play games? Only thing I do that I could maybe see benifiting from it is I mess around in image editing programs (Inkscape and the GIMP specificly) every so often.

    As I'm thinking about getting a new mouse, what's the verdict here? Will there be some life altering, ZOMG style difference having a high DPI mouse instead of a normal one... or the little touchpad I got on the lappy, for that matter?

    If it isn't that big a deal... I think I'll try a trackball. Always wanted one. They look kinda fun.

    thanks to Silverwmoon!

    trackballs are fun, but their about as precise as a tank that shoots live chickens. or so it seems to me (only spent about an hour with it before i dumped it), im actually in the market for a wireless mouse for my Laptop, i want to spend less than $40 and i want it to be either optical or laser, im looking into one by microsoft but im not sure if i should check online first or whatnot. suggestions?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I've heard that trackballs are great if you're used to them, it's just that they've got a really steep learning curve..

    I'm using an MX1000 now, and I think it's great! It's got a good battery life, of about a week on a single charge I guess (well I never really used it till the battery runs out dry) -- the mouse switches into standby mode when it's idle, and it's got a manual switch to turn it off completely. I read from a review that the G7 is great except for its battery life. I never confirmed this myself since no one I know has a G7 mouse.

    Personally for me, I don't see the point of having a wireless keyboard. I can't type far from my screen anyway. The only reason I got the mouse was so that I can control my computer from a distance when I'm watching dvd's or listening to music.

    @StealDragon
    I guess it comes down to personal preference - I prefer logitech compared to microsoft. The logitech V450 and V200 notebook mice seems nice.

    Noo Argghh You caught me! I didn't expect somebody here would use that, because I never use it myself Lol.

    Steal, get the laser man, optical is out of date! oo for me I would like to get a bluetooth laser mouse since I have a built in BLUETOOTH, FOOOOO!
    I have bluetooth cellphone and I can make a dial up connection with my bluetooth laptop in any place that I can get cell phone signal and also I can controll my laptop with my bluetooth cell phone, FOOOOO!
    oo don't get microsoft it is too pricey also I hate microsoft.

    The point of having wireless is to have less wire near your desk or work place.

    what part of UNDER $40 didnt you get!!! XP

    im not a big fan of microsoft but if it works then it works, if its cost effective then its better, i dont want to spend 70 bucks on freakin mouse cuz i dont need one that good. all i want it for is faster web browsing, Age of Empires, and photoshop.

    show me a good wireless laser mouse for less than $50 and ill consider it
