Hey guys,

 

 

 

My old mouse and keyboard are wearing out, so need to be replaced.  Looking to spend anywhere up to $200 total for both. I realise this won't get me top of the line, but I don't use my PC to game enough these days to justify a huge spend.  If the feedback is that a $100 spend is 80% as good as a $200 spend I would rather save the money for something else.  I do the usual email/browsing/Word/Excel etc on it as well, so needs be reasonable to type on as well.

 

I'm based in Lower Hutt, Wellington if recommending brick and mortar shops.

 

 

 

TIA.

I like the Logitech mice, Im on my 3rd Logitech gaming mouse in probably 20 years :) Wingman, G5, G400s

 

With mice, it comes down to personal preference, I loved the G5 because of its weight cartridge which allowed me to have a heavy mouse which I like. 

 

 

 

Keyboard wise, I'm not picky, currently have a Steelseries Apex which I picked up for $40 on special - some prefer the mech keys but you tend to pay for them.

i use one of these. The company is more known for making the parts that go into the  well known  gaming mice until they started making their own mice and the reviews on them are really good.

Common sense is not as common as you think.
