I have recently ordered a new computer and I thought this would be a good opportunity to buy myself a new keyboard and possibly even a new mouse.

However I become uncertain about what I should get and would like some advice.
I will include links on the product names.

I do not want any cordless products.

The keyboards I am considering are the: Razer Lycosa (http://www.razerzone.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_21&products_id=76) and the Saitek Cyborg (http://www.saitek.com/uk/prod/cykey.htm).

I really do not want a G15/11/Whatever from Logitech anyway.

What I am looking for is a keyboard that is comfortable for gaming as well as writing and while it is a plus I do not really need to have extra macro buttons.

What I really do require is the keyboard to be illuminated, though, and preferable I would like it to be easy on the eye, not like the Cyborg thing which has quite some assets, on the other hand.

When it comes to mice I am uncertain, I sort of like the Logitech G5 V2 (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/mice_pointers/mice/devices/359&cl=gb,en), although I have the original G5 right now, and all new mice looks too squarely shaped with wierd exchangeable grips, I just want something with a pleasant grip and several programmable buttons.

Slicer told me about the Razer Lachesis (http://www.razerzone.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=72), but besides from that one I do not really know of a good mouse.

Any input would be welcome.

Since I'm not too fond of wirelss, I went with this mouse:

And I really like it. Pleasant grip and enough extra button (which is one of the main reasons I bought it)

yeah, indeed. Wireless can be very annoying. exspecialy when they gets low on battery.
A mouse with wire is way more "safe" to use. For example when you are in raid and stuff.
And there isn't a big price different.

It looks comfortable, but I would like a few more buttons, as I always seem to run out of key bindings. Right now I have 5 extra buttons if you include moving the mouse wheel to the left or right, and I am afraid that 5 extra buttons would be minimum for me.

And yes, to be clear I do not want any cordless things.

Use some buttons on the keyboard etc. And also. You shouldn't need that many keybindings as Warlock. If you dont know. You can buy a special xtra keyboard, designed for World of Warcraft. There should be enough keybindings. But also, that xtra keyboard only works for special types of keyboards. For example G15 I think.

I disagree with you, I do not like to click buttons and I need tons of key bindings. The ones I have to use quickly and somewhat frequently I want on my mouse.

I am not here to argue what spells I use frequently, but there are several macros, spells and items I need rapid access to.

However I want at least 5 extra buttons on my mouse. Period.

Yeah, it looks decent, although the grip does not seem that neat and it costs 115€.

Yep it's exspensive, but your buttons are there. :D

Meh, been using this one for 3 years now, works flawlessly, never had a better mouse, I really like it, and it's not really that bad with cordless, just recharge it every night, and you'll never have a problem.

Hi Kennay!

I have the same mouse and love it but I always had difficulty convincing it to charge when I put it in its cradle. I had to "finesse" it.

I'm currently using one of these (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/productdetails.aspx?pid=004).

Here are the Razer Lachesis (http://www.razerzone.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_17&products_id=72) and Lycosa (http://www.razerzone.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_21&products_id=76). They look gash if you ask me.

Anyone here using a Wolfking Warrior?

Why the fuck aren't links highlighted on this forum?

i upgraded from one of them microsoft ones to the MX1000, it's such a bitch to get charged but i can't find a mouse that's as easy to hold/as comfy in my hand.
