    The G7 mouse is the best mouse on the market, or an MX1000 if you like the design better. Best keyboard is tougher, Saitek Eclipse is nice.

    best mouse, I would go with the G-series from logitech, the keyboard is more up to the user imho. I prefer my ergonomic microsoft natural over anything because I got used to the split keyboard.

    "Best" will depend on personal preference from what I've seen.
    I'm weird in that I will always prefer ball mice on wood surfaces over optical mice on "precision surfaces".

    I've a Saitek Eclipse and an MX1000, and they're working well for me. And, for me at least, the wireless lag is a myth.

    G5 OVER the G7..... yep i said it... the G5 doesnt need to be charged, and if your a hardcore gamer, it would probably make you angry if you had to charge it for sooo long.... funny story(not too funny, but it IS a story) i play CS:Source, and my clan is in CAL... we were about to play a match, and all of a sudden, our clan leader said "oh s**t, my keyboard is f****n up!" he needed batteries for his keyboard AND mouse



    FOR GAMING go cordless, and laser... i have a mx-518, but thats only because i bought it like 1 month before the G5 came out.... lol at me

    Yep yep! shard and me also both use MadDotz on our mice. I bought the $7 pack of 36 MadDotz. well worth the investment. I just got my MX1000 from Nero, which really is BARELY USED, and I'll be putting MadDotz on it to.

    What I like most about ball mice is that when you need to pick them up to center them you don't have to lift as far as you would with an optical mouse because the ball can't "read" the motion unless it's touching. I also just prefer the tactile feel they give. Makes being precise easier for me atleast.

    Hmm, not that I know of. I wouldn't be suprised if CompUSA started to sell a similar product some time in the future though. Although knowing CUSA, it'd be way over priced for what you get from them.

    When I got my new pc I upgraded from a Logitech Cordless keyboard & mouse combo to a Saitek Eclipse and a Razer Copperhead. The keyboard is excellent and the mouse...? I can't say whether it's down to the increased precision or just the fact that it's a wired connection, but it's fast! Very accurate.

    On the other hand, Razer provide the option of upgrading the firmware, but it's not easy. In fact, I've failed so far. The mouse has to be disconnected to do it which means you either have to install another mouse to do it, or, "navigate using the keyboard", as the blurb says. For some reason my pc fails to recognise the ordinary ball mouse I tried and I have no idea how to use the keyboard to "navigate".

    Has anybody here updated their firmware successfully and would they be willing to talk me through how it's done?

    Below is the Razer link to the instructions for this procedure.

    Thanks.

    The Logitech Ultra X Keyboard

    I'm a fan of less buttons on a mouse; I feel that I only need 3: the scroller, left click and right click. That said, the Microsoft IntelliMouse series is the best mouse for me; comfortable design and quick accuracy.
