The last Logitech wireless set up I had dropped keystrokes ALL the time.

I went back to wires.

I have the cheapest Logitech cordless desktop and it works well for me.


The only caveat is that I have to keep the receiver unit on top of the desk even though my pc case is under it. Sometimes my mouse goes to sleep or loses the connection but all I need to do is slide it near the receiver unit and it's back on. The keyboard has never given me trouble.

@Williamn: Which Logitech wireless set did you have? The various Bluetooth models they had out a few years back offered truly terrible performance, with constant lag, dropped connections, interference etc. I wouldn't have touched them with a barge-pole.

Besides, as a gamer I go for wired anyway - much though I prefer wireless peripherals for, well, their lack of wires ;)

Ardjuna: a wee disagreement at the layout point. nowadays, when they try to stuff as many 'things' as possible into keyboards, mice and everything they produce it's wise to remember that quantity doesn't mean quality. for instance, if you're used to mouse gestures and simple key combinations in various programs, the presence of additional buttons and stuff (which won't work either way unless you are on Windows and use apps like wmp/winamp which are only used by inexperienced users) can be quite a distraction. as for this keyboard and mouse, i find the quantity and placement of the buttons (including the shortcut ones) just right and fair. can argue about the mouse, but just note--earlier we used f1-f12 for shortcuts and nowadays we use ctrl-whatever, so placing new buttons at top as in the case of wave is a step backwards. it's merely attractive to--again--inexperienced users.
