    Hey, I was looking at getting one of the Chief-Tec Wireless Keyboard and Mouse combos. I don't need a really high quality K/M I just want something that will replace my old ones. And I was wondering since they are so cheap, am I just getting what I pay for?
    I just would like some Pros and Cons from people who own, or maybe bought them, and like them, or thought that they were pieces of crap and threw them out.
    Anyway thanks for any replies that you post.

    D.E.

    The biggest problem with wireless, IMHO, is the fact you have to remember to have a supply of batteries either rechargeables or otherwise in stock

    I wouldn't buy it. It looks good, but the mouse is an older ball type. It's possible to find wireless keyboards and mice in combos for around the same price.

    Normally there are sales going on where you can pick up a good combo for aprox $30.

    IMO, I would go wire keyboard and mouse.

    I love my gyration wireless suite, but the $80 price may send some into sticker shock. Works better than my logitech wireless elite though.
