I need to get a new mouse and would like a new keyboard as well. I have a Microsoft optical mouse right now and a Microsoft hotkey keyboard. The nice is kind of grungy now and the keyboard is pretty loud. I just wanted some opinions on what you were using. I would like a mouse with at least 5 buttons as that is what I have now, and I would like a keyboard that has programmable hotkeys. I like the calculator hotkey, my computer and the mute/volume buttons. I don't care about the web surfing buttons. I have read a few of the mouse reviews on guru3d but there really aren't many. Please share your likes and dislikes of your current setup. Are the macros very useful? At what point is the DPI scanning enough? 2000? 3000? 5000?
