I voted logitech, as they have more of a selection of keyboards and mice. They aren't that expensive as microsofts either! Maybe when I get a microsoft keyboard or mouse I will reconsider, but I got a pretty decent optical mouse and keyboard for less than 50 bucks which ain't too shabby imo. Of course I want a Microsoft split keyboard, but for 60 bucks I don't think so. Damn it's hot in california.

I voted MS, the Logitech mouse is slow on the fps and small, as for the keyboard it just does not have the sturdy feeling the MS natural elite usb has. And the MS mouse is the best, nothing can beet its sensitivity and performance.

I have both a Microsoft Optical and a Logitech Optical and I like the Microsoft much better. Better size and allround ability.
I only use Microsoft Internet keyboards. They have everything that I need, and are easy to use. 8)

I voted logitech because that's what I have - the non-cordless USB optical mouse with the translucent red bottom and sides($20 at wal-mart). I've never had problems with it but I use the ps/2 adapter just because I want to. I'm not a peripheral-phile so I probably wouldn't notice any difference between the logitech and M$ mice or keyboards anyway. I'm just so happy not to deal with cleaning a stupid rubber ball or mouse pad every other day.

One defining characteristic of the logitech optical technology in mice is that it is less sensitive and reactive than the M$ Explorer type mice--this I and DatekTrader21 know. Say you're playing a shooting game on the computer, and you know something is right behind you and want to shoot it--so you instantly flinch the mouse to the right.. if you have a logitech mouse you will probably start going every which way other than right; whereas with a microsoft it will be precisely in the direction you pushed it. Unfortunately I hate siding with M$, but I have to when it comes to quality of mice and keyboards.

That's an odd thing to happen. Never happened to me, and believe me I would know, I'm in my 3D FPS engine (check the link below)4-8 hours a day working and it is always spot on. I wouldn't use it if it didn't work.

Man maybe I got a bad mouse or something, cause i move it real fast and it goes every which way. I compared mine to a Microsoft Explorer mouse, and the Explorer didn't do that at all.

It's not just you Peter. My wife's computer has a Logitech optical mouse and it does exactly what yours does. It freaks out every now and then and shoots across the screen in the opposite direction that you move it. I have been told that a mouse pad with a grid pattern will help this. I thought that the advantage to an optical mouse was that it didn't need a pad. :roll:

you know what i like about MS [why does everyone use $ inplace of S]
everything i have ever returned to them as been done so with out questions. like my first MS optical mouse developed a short. for 69 bucks i expect them to last forever. i called MS told them my problem, they ask for the S/n and my shipping address three days later i had a new shiny MS mouse and it was the next revision of the intellimouse not the original big bulky thing.



i asume it will be the same if this nice big MS natural elite usb internet keyboard fails.
