At work I have logictech MK710, and it works ok. At home I have logitech MK550 but it doesn't work very well. The mouse is fine but the keyboard has lots of lag so I switched back to wired. I don't really do much PC gaming, but I do a lot of writing/work/etc on my home desktop.

So what are your recommendations?

I'm using a K800 and M705 and like them

I had lag issues too though until I used the USB extender to relocate the wireless receiver, with it mounted on the desk behind the monitor I have no issues

I thought distance was the issue, but I moved the dongle to the front of my case at the top. My case is under the desk, with the dongle not far (maybe 12"-18") from the keyboard, separated only by the wood desk. Still, the MK550 is laggy af.

I'll always recommend the Dinovo Edge keyboard. This thing is still kicking and has been hands-down the best keyboard I've ever used. Still have yet to see one that rivals this thing. On the mouse side, I think I'm going to try one of those new Surface precision mouses.

At home I have a Logitech G900 mouse and a Das Keyboard 4 professional. They're probably my favorite combo yet.

I have a Logitech K400R that works great but only has about a 4-5 foot line-of-sight range

^I have 2 of those and right now I get about 12 ft on the one at home, but the receiver is on the back of the case, not the front ports. The batteries are also 3ish years old. I also have the "Couch Mouse" M515 and it has really good range, but the damn battery door will not stay on.

At work I have the M525 and really like it. No problem with range or battery life.

^^I use one of those for my HTPC on the couch. It's 8-9 feet but line of site and works great.

after recommending the m705 i just started having inconsistent clicking and after googling it's a not uncommon problem related to the spring under the left mouse button

so i retract my recommendation for the m705, i'm going to be replacing mine

^^ can you turn off the led? i don't like most gaming mice because of how they look, that one isn't too extreme except for the LED

think it's just a mode indicator and doesn't stay on, but i've never paid attention to it enough to actually see if it does

i'm happy with this m720, it feels a lot better than the m705

probably doesn't compare to expensive mice, but i got this on sale for $20

My favorite mouse is still my Logitech MX1000 that I got in 2004. It still runs great and I use it at work. Battery life is still solid as well. They just don't make them like they used to.

^agreed. I had an MX1000 laser that came with my Logitech Dinovo Media Desktop Laser (that Dinovo line was/is some premium shit...) and loved it. I still have it, but the charger is now a pain in the ass to align the mouse on.

^Take rubbing alcohol and use q-tips to clean all the contacts and it works like new again!
