    Default Gaming mouse and keyboard

    So for mouse I am thinking Razer Copperhead with Razer Mantis Pad.
    Any recommendations on keyboard, and why? I used to game on old keyboard from 486 days. I tried new ones and I found keys to be mushy, and not very responsive.

    i've had two Copperhead mice, the first one broke, i'd had it 16 months. Razer have a 2 year warranty and even though i had no box and it was completely knackered they sent a new one.

    It's the most accurate mouse you can get, but its a unique shape, some may like it, some won't. If you like a mouse to be immensely ergonomic and sort of just fit right in your hand you probably won't like the way it feels, its been designed to be felt and not neccesarily fit all snug in ones hand.

    As for keyboard, some of the new Microsoft keyboard are vastly imporved over the old ones, they have a really tactile feel to them, or you could go for Razers amazing looking keyboard for 70 (ouch)

    ps, can you remove those links in your sig.

    it really depends on how much are you willing to spend
    i dont really like the razer mice, so i'd get a solid MX518 or a G5 from logitech, but if you really have ur heard set on the razer then i'm not gonna start yappin you shouldnt
    i dont know much about the Mantis, searched one review and it didnt had any Cons so i'm sure its well made. however i like pads made of glass so i can recomend Corepad or Corepad Magna.

    keyboards are a different story, tons of them and all it matters is what you wanna get for ur money. like say a logitech G15 or G11 could be a good choice, have tons of features and relatively cheap. the top would be a Razer Tranatula but i dont think you wanna spend that much on a keyboard.

    anyway just stay away from wireless products and you'll be fine

    yea I personally have a G-5 and G-15,

    G-5
    pros - feels very good in the hand, very smooth movement, has adjustable sensitivity on the mouse it self no need for software

    cons - doesn't have as many buttons as some mice. the rubber hand grips on the side are a bit hard

    G-15
    pros - back lit keys(awesome for gaming in a dark room),lcd screen that can be programmed with useful stats, extra keys to bind with, solid feeling keys

    cons - LARGE this thing is huge make sure u have enough room for it

    my only gripe with the G15 is that it looks like it was built in the 80's, just a big hunk of Night Rider/Hasselhoffness

    Id look into the Logitech G5 and Razer Diamondback for mice. And im not familiar with the latest keyboards, but my "Microsoft Digital Media Pro" is great for its price.

    Wireless is good in certain situations. But if ur going to move the mouse far off from the computer, yea then get wireless. But if u r like me and u have no use for ur mouse when ur away from ur desk the a wired mouse is for u and they will NEVER need charging ever
