Wireless mouse/keyboards

Postby Tyler » Sun Oct 14, 2018 9:31 pm

I have had the same wireless mouse/keyboard since 2007. The mouse is finally crapping out on me and about 20% of the clicks don't register. I am looking to replace them both. Does anyone have an ergonomic keyboard?

I don't do any kb/mouse gaming, so I want to keep it all wireless. Cleaner desk look. Give me some suggestions!

For those wondering, here is what I've been using all these years

Logitech M510 for a mouse for me. I have three of these (work, home, and bag). For keyboard I use the keyboard from the mk320 combo at home and keyboard from mk520 at work. I hated the mice that came in those combos.

Do you need 2x dongles since you are using a mouse from a different set?

I really only need a new mouse, so could just get that, but I didn't want 2x dongles.

Welcome to 2010... Logitech Unifying Receiver. You can pair multiple devices to one dongle. This is nice if you lose a dongle as well because you used to just have to throw the set away at that point.

What a time to be alive! I'll get the mouse you recommend probably

What about Microsoft's sidewise one?

Corey, are you hot and bothered? This will make editing video so much easier.

I'm going to be working from home for a few weeks so I want the optimal setup. I ordered a generic dock (which doesn't work) and now a keyboard mouse combo.

MK345

If someone has a work laptop with USB C, let me know. My dock may work with that. In the meantime I am just going to take my work dock home.

I just ordered another one. I'm angry that my WFH laptop mouse is not one of these.

I only use one of these now in my bag. I have a M705 at home (that I got as part of a MK710 combo with a keyboard) and M720. The M720 is my favorite as it can do Unifying and two Bluetooth devices. That allows me to keep the Unifying dongle in my dock at work and bring my laptop to meetings with the mouse without it (switching to Bluetooth).

You can't just change your mice without telling me first!!!

Hooking up multiple methods doesn't really benefit me. Why dont you keep it BT at work all the time and no dongle?

I could but the dongle is foolproof so no need to troubleshoot Bluetooth issues that may pop up.
