Wireless Keyboard/Desktop

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im in need of a wireless keyboard.
Im moving and due to the size of my new room ive decided to forgo my desk chair and just use my Bowl(papa san) Chair at my computer desk. Its already a media center what with my PS3, speakers, HDTV and all, and ive been playing my PC games less often, so I figure ill just finish the conversion. While I do still play my PC games, im not very competitive when I play online and I usually just do single player or co-op with friends anyway.

So yeah. Im looking for a fairly durable, gaming capable but not oriented, wireless keyboard or Keyboard + Mouse for use mainly in typing for work but also for some semi-casual(non-online) gaming.
Lets start the budget between $20 and $40 and see what can be found.
Ill swing up to $60 if its really worth it but I would like to keep this cheap.
Its expensive enough moving and getting everything set-up (i.e. activation fees and the like on cable and interpipes).

I love my "Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000". Search for it on

and you can find it for about 40 bucks.

The keyboard has a slight curve which makes it easy on the hands. I love how the 10-key is separate giving you more room on the desk if you don't need it but it's still easy to have near if you do.

The keys are low profile which give them the feel of a laptop but nicer, I LOVE this keyboard setup. You should definitely give it some consideration.

Looks pretty good. Ill keep looking though. I want to have several ideas before I buy.
Not to mention I would have to buy a Bluetooth adapter for my computer.

I really like the Logitech K320, I have two of them. It's a standard (not ergonomic) full-size wireless keyboard using Logitech's Unifying receiver. Range is good, at least 15 feet, I haven't tried farther than that. Its battery life is excellent, the one I use at work has been going strong for a year now on one set of batteries and I'm a programmer so I do a ton of typing. It's around $30. The receiver is tiny, and if you get a compatible Logitech mouse you can pair it with the same receiver so you don't need to take up two USB ports.

I would recommend against Bluetooth keyboards and mice. I have a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse and its battery life is a couple weeks at best. I haven't used it in a long time because of that.

I was looking at one of those.
I do quite a bit of programming for work, I was looking at that keyboard, and I do have a logitech mouse.
Its good to hear its a good keyboard, ill definitley keep it near the top of my short(for now) list.

Phil, I got my mom

set up when it was on sale at OfficeMax for $35... it's acutally nice to type on and the mouse is great.

She loves it, and I have no extreme issue transitioning from my Mechanical and Mamba to it... it works great in a pinch ^^

Thats another one I was looking at.
Ive got a buddy who works there who could pick it up for me too.
And its good to know it feels close enough to a mamba that it doesnt cause problems.

Thats on the list too.
