It's like comparing a Steinway Grand Piano to a Casio keytar.
Not to mention they don't lose their feel in 2-3 months. Logitech keyboards feel great at the beginning, but turn shit after a while of usage.

I've been using the same Logitech wireless keyboard for 4 years, no back lit keys though, it has everything else though. I take out the batteries, which last for 6 months, by the way, and put it in the dishwasher to clean it. Then I just let it dry real well before I put the bats back in.

And now they have a "unifying" receiver that you can program with other Logitech products. You can program the keys to do what you want as well.



And my mouse, love it too

I knew you could run water over them if you needed to wash 'em, but they hold up in the dishwasher? I wouldn't have thought that to be the case. I'm fairly sure you aren't drying them in there as well, right?

I like this thread, because I'm in the market for a keyboard and mouse also.

I know it's slightly off topic, but I use a Saitek X52 jostick setup (seperate throttle and joystick components) and a Logitech MOMO steering wheel and pedals. Love them both, and give them both the highest marks. Although I'm not the most dedicated gamer, and I'm also not very hard on equipment like that. The wheel is incredible. When I'm driving in BF2, the force feedback makes it seem very realistic when you're zipping around in one of the US dune buggy thingys. Very realistic. I need to find a racing game I like.

Yeah, I do, just make sure that it's on the top shelf is all, just like plastic anything, the bottom is too hot. You can wash anything electronic with water, as long as the caps are discharged and you let them dry completely first, before applying the juice.

I've pressure washed everything from TV's to a 32 channel mixing boards with no problems. I learned this trick in the summer of 1972, Storm Agnes, I was 11, my Dad was bringing home TV sets and other electronics by the 10 wheeler load. I was hosing out all the mud, then laying them out in the sun to dry. The only ones that I had problems with where RCA's that had the "Instant On" feature, and that's because of how that worked, it kept the CRT charged all the time, so when the flood waters hit them, it usually fried them.

I made a killing that year, and the following year selling those things. I also learned patience

I already have a decent mouse (Logitech G400) and a kickass speaker system (also Logitech) all courtesy of Santa. I would trust Logitech all the way. Thanks for the advice guys.
