    blue tooth keyboards are a bad idea, i have one. there ok, but they don't always connect and it's annoying. it's better to buy a wired keyboard

    I've never used a wireless mouse that didn't have a delay. Terrible for games.

    Possibly because u were...

    A. Using a cheap wireless mouse

    B. your mouse mat is crap that so the laser gets confused (yeah this has happend to me - I had a metal mouse mat but my Logitech G7 gaming mouse started getting stuck on "blind spots" where ive played so many hours & actually worn away the matt itself thus rendering the mouse ineffective due to blind spots)

    C. Highly unlikey but use of a low/GENERIC DPi mouse for gaming without turning up the mouse speed in the games Control panel(???)

    Ive used many a wireless & wired mouseys for my gaming - Ive never had any trouble with lag what so ever. the only problem i had was keeping the rifle steady while sniping & my DPi was too high I lose the shot but Ive tuned my G7 mouse to compensate for the mouse click which throws my aim off a little)


    Anyway - I swear ive seen the same keyboard n mouse kit in WIRELESS flavour (non bluetooth)

    I get lag and stuck with my laser wired mouse.


    this combo is a bit expensive, logitech needs to keep it 79.99 and under.

    Im still hoping for the day that the G15 keyboard goes wireless - & still keep its additional USB ports functionality lol. guess the reason why they havent implemented anything like that is because that keyboard would chew up 2 AA battries like scooby snacks in no time forget having to scream out "Pupppppy powwweeerrr!!!"


    A Wireless G15 Keyboard which takes battry packs likethe G7 mouse :rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::toast::toast::toast::toast::toast::toast: I can only dream
