Default anyone have a wireless keyboard?

I've been looking to get a wireless keyboard. I'm not one to break the bank, but want to get a good one. The one thing is i have no care for the mouse, since i want to get a "Logitech Cordless Trackman" since i like to get a trackball again.

I like my standard keyboard with the media keys and such and am basically looking for reliabilty, especially since i will be using a seperate wireless mouse(if anyone uses usch a combination, please give me some feedback).

What have been your experiences with wireless keyboards?

Thanx

I have little experience but I hate them. Wired is cheaper, better, faster, more reliable.

I have the cordless Access Duo, and I like them a lot.
The mouse is a little laggy, dont care tho, I dont game that much. and the keyboard, I can use downstairs, the range is easily 50ft. Have never gotten a missed key or gone out of range. The only thing you need to remember is batteries. I use rechargeables, its all good.
