    Is the technology responsive enough for gaming, ie fps type games ?

    any hardware recommendations would be great.

    thanks

    Logitech G7 is my favourite atm, but im not sure about keyboards.


    also what is the range on these? i was hoping for more than a metre or two.

    I know quite a few heavy gamres that use wireless mice (not sure about kbd), but their batteries are perenially failing in the middle of a match.

    Pain!

    you can set the g7 to give you a flashing warning light on the mouse when it's 25% power left.

    you can adjust this too.

    dream mouse really.

    well im going to get the g7, i just cant find a keyboard to match.

    its so i can play games on the big screen without having to drag wires accross the room.

    g7 comes with 2 batteries, 1 charges while the other is being used, so your never without. battery swapping takes about 2 seconds and the battery simply slips into the wireless receiver to charge(takes either 2 hours on boost or 10 hours on normal).

    ...kin brilliant!!!

    oh yeah and 2000dpi :cool:
