Wireless keyboard & mouse

Anyone has one?
Are they worth spending the extra $$$$?
Do they work well?

I don't have one but am thinking of getting one. Seem like a pretty good idea, just make sure you get one that is rechargeable rather than constantly having to buy batteries

You'd be surprised how cheap some of them are, in particular the BenQ ones, they're an Acer company

i have one... logitech... $200 at harris technologies...

I LOVE IT!!! cant imagine life without them... just need to keep a spare set of batteries... never know when they go dead... its got a warning, but human nature is to run them till one morning you turn the comp on, and you got no keyboard or mouse or both!

i have an acer IR one and use a ms optical. havig the one cord for the mouse isnt so bad, the resolution of a corded mouse is just so much better for gaming though.

I havent tried the logitech combo yet, but i may well have to as my keyboard is dying. (you know your a geek when you keyboards start to wear out)

I have the Logitech sloptical mouse and keyboard set, and it's shite. Well, to be fair, the problem isn't with the particular model, it's with wireless in general. You see, my neighbours have the same model, and often times, my receiver will retrain to THEIR frequency rather than mine, and I can't control squat. Almost caused a fist through the monitor, a rock through a window, and a cordless keyboard over the knee!

Anyone want to make an offer?

Mr Sparkle, have you secured your keyboard?! normally if you do that, your keyboard will not pick up or transmit to any other device...
