    Well, my keyboard that im using at the moment in some generic shitty thing. It does what it has to do but i would like to get another. Been looking at getting an illuminated one... any ideas?

    Also my mouse (OCZ Dominatrix) has started to go. i need a mouse that is a similar shape for my large hands... anything will be taken into consideration here....

    And anyone had any experiences with the Asus Xonar? I am looking at getting one to upgrade from onboard sound.

    So guys, go go go...!

    If you want big have a look at the Microsoft Sidewinder. I had one for a while and its very comfortable to use. I had the first gen one and for some reason DCS Blackshark always crashed when it was plugged in, even without extra drivers. Maybe thats been fixed in the later models, and thats the only problem I had with it so if you don't fly russian heli-sims you'll be fine, LOL

    My Razer DeathAdder broke. I bought a cheaper Sidewinder X3 and am pretty happy with it.

    The one and only mouse I like... Logitech Mx518. Very nice for larger hands and can take a beating.

    Logitech MX Revolution Mouse for me, comfortable, 5 buttons and 2 scroll wheels one of which I use for volume control, very handy!:)

    Plus it charges itself, no need for batteries - save the planet:respect:

    I had an MX Revolution too, and the size is great. But it was very erratic, the pointer would leap around at random. Put me off wireless mice altogether.

    Mine will do that occasionally to, but I find its dust or hair on the lens.

    Speaking of...I really like my CM Sentinel Advanced. Good sized, on a chord, and works well for my day to day, as well as gaming.

    Dunno though, my cheapy cheap Logitech optical wired mouse has never done it. Seemed to be more like something to do with interference in the signal.

    I use a Logitech MX518 and a Saitek Eclispe II. Both excellent options at reasonable prices.
