    The razor mamba and logitech g700 dont have input lagg. (well 1ms) . they work great actually. they are a bit expensive though, but they are rechargable which is a big plus.

    the razor mamba is 6400dpi, the logitech g700 5700 dpi.

    anyways high dpi doesn mean a thing, there are some games where i have to set the dpi to 800 or its too fast. (that may also depend on the mouse though)

    I've been gaming with a wireless Bluetooth keyboard and 'standard' wireless mouse for maybe seven years now, and I'm not sure what the lag is people talk about. On occasion, I'll be on a wired set at a friend's house, and I don't notice any difference in response times. I think early attempts at wireless peripherals were klunky enough to induce some lag.

    If the lag they're talking about is the one second it takes to wake the keyboard and mouse up after they've gone to sleep, then there you go, but unless you stop moving the mouse and keyboard for half an hour at a time while you're playing, that's not an issue.

    Disclaimer - while I play first-person shooters maybe five days a week, I'm not a professional player.

    Some of us are just picky. I can very much notice the input lag when using Wireless, though with Bluetooth it is less there.

    It's not something everyone perceives, but I am on the computer -alot-, and it is very easy for me to see.
