Question Wireless Keyboard Question

I received a Logitech LX 500 Wireless Desktop for christmas, and I have been using it and testing it out, and I was wondering if it was worthwhile to have it. I play a fair amount of FPSs and it didn't seem to lag much at all the few times i tested it (it was a late x-mas for me)

on a side note, what's the range/orientation on the receiver? i currently have mine taped to the wall under my desk, but how serious can the interference from my monitor be? (I have a 17" Samsung Syncmaster flat panel)

any horror stories?

Well believe it or not, my wireless keyboard is undetectable in certain parts of DOS. However my PS/2 keyboard is. Things happen like that, its best to have both.

If you buy a USB to PS2 adaptor you that might solve your problem with DOS. I want to buy a wireless keyboard but I cant find any that arent bundled with a mouse cos i already have a wireless mouse.

Oh I am aware of that, but it just doesnt really bother me that much. I switch between my two keyboards frequently (i.e gaming keyboard and my standard wireless.) Did you check newegg.com for your wireless keyboard?

Yes you can play, and the lag won't make much of a difference however the batteries may run out on you during a game!

Use rechargebale batteries, not any of that stupid big lots crap. Use good quality batteries and you will be fine.

I had some good quality rechargeables but over time they become worse, so you'll need to buy some more in the future. Even so, they are a lot better than normal batteries.
