I'm looking at getting some new stuffs, so does anyone have any recommendations for mouse and keyboards, price range i have no idea, just nothing stupid like over £100 lol unless they're that good
I have this mouse and it's very good even tho it looks stupid
I use this keyboard (in black) at home
I replaced the switches but the ones it comes with are fine but a bit loud. The bluetooth is a nice touch. The layout is wonky but I like it and it's cheap as heck.
If you want a decent combo with a membrane keyboard, I'd recommend this. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-G403-Wired-Mouse-Keyboard/dp/B072FW64JG/
Otherwise, I'd get like a G403 and a HyperX Alloy FPS or G413.
I suggest going to a store where they have mechanical keyboards on display and trying them out to get a feel of which switches you like and don't like then look for a keyboard which has those switches. There's a lot of amazing deals on mechanical keyboards out there, there's some Alienware RGB keyboards that have been floating around with some good brown switches for around $35.
I'd normally direct you to rocketjumpninja for his mouse reviews and recommendations/top 40 list but his site just went down a few hours ago and he might be starting over with it. I'd just dig through his videos and see if he's reviewed anything you're looking at buying.
Possibly going to currys/pc world soon, so will have to keep an eye out on the stuff you guys recommended and how i feel about the keys on some
ended up getting the logitech G403 and G413, spend a little more than expected but had about £35 in amazon vouchers from my birthday so didn't have to pay full price, which was like £114 in a deal like the one posted above
Any mechanical keyboard is great, just avoid the clicky ones because that's just stupid, but that won't make you climb hundreds of ranks.
As far as the mouse is concerned, finding one that fits you is the most important part. Nobody can guess which shapes/sizes will fit you the best.
Once you find that, the more buttons the better. I'll be a cheerleader for the G502, since it's a great mouse with quite a few buttons that you can use with Over-watch, even though its design is worse than the MX500/G400 from the good old days.
It's still less worse than the other brands. And it's wired, which is always a good thing, with adjustable weights which can also be useful depending on you.
And as for the mouse-pad... it's easy. Get the biggest you can fit on your desk
Having used a G500 since it came out for 8+ years, it's a heavy but comfortable mouse. The only way I would still recommend a G502 is if you don't play competitive FPS games, get it on sale and want a heavy larger mouse. Everyone I know who has owned a G500 or G502 has moved on to a G403/G703 or a Zowie product. If this was 2010, the G500 would still be king but it's been almost 10 years since it was on top.
Wired is also no longer a selling point, Logitech's Lightspeed and Corsair with whatever similar sounding thing they named it are stupid fast. Wireless tech has improved so much that wireless mice are performing at the same level as wired mice down to the point that it's near impossible to measure the difference. Lots of professional players have been making the switch and ditching the tether, not to mention most wireless mice will function as wired as soon as you plug them in anyways.
Corsair released their 2.4ghz slipstream technology earlier this month so wireless is now faster and lasts longer than ever. (Didn't charge it for 2-3 days)
I've not long ago picked up their Harpoon Gaming Mouse that utilizes the new tech for £45, the dpi goes up to 10,000 though it's not like you could ever use that properly and all 6 buttons are programable. (l/r click, mouse wheel click, forward/back buttons and a dpi toggle button)
The iCUE program for doing so is a solid piece of software for customizing Corsair's hardware, you can assign profiles to activate when a certain exe is loaded as well as assigning a sound file to a profile so you know which profile you're on if you don't want to use the OSD feature it comes with. I have a small folder of macros for elite dangerous that I use the dpi button to toggle through so to reduce the amount of keyboard travel I need to do when i'm in vr.
It also has a Bluetooth switch for if you don't have an available usb port for the 2.4ghz dongle or can easily be plugged in with a micro-usb although I reserve the cable for charging when i'm away.
a) there's no reason for a keyboard to be wireless, really. Just adds to the price.
b) the MX Master is a terrible gaming mouse because it has a laser sensor.
I'm gonna shill the G305, amazing wireless mouse and very light.
Except if you don't want wires
If you wanna spend like $50 and get an honestly awesome set with Omron switches and Cherry MX - equivalent keys, here ya go:
