    Question Great Wireless Keyboard?

    As some of you may have noticed my posts may have included more spelling and grammar errors than usual, I am blaming the tools. My MS Wireless Keyboard 700 is junk and misses or duplicates characters at random if non within 5cm of the receiver.

    Suggestions: What is a good wireless keyboard and mouse combo that will work with a fast typing speed and a range of three or so meters.

    Extra points for backlit and integrated touchpad. I have yet to find a wireless keyboard that is not terrible. Has anyone else found a decent one?

    Logitech K400 Wireless Touch Keyboard...My brother has one, he can work comfortably on his sofa whilst the PC and screen is across the room. It isn't backlit but its very very good. Has a touchpad also and the range is around 10m or so.

    Logitech K830?

    I have a K400 and am not too keen on the placement of some of the keys. The arrow keys in particular.

    Although its MS: Microsoft's wireless All-In-One Media Keyboard for Smart TVs announced - Neowin
    Its Xbox One compatible too I believe.

    I've used both the Keysonic ACK-540RF Wireless Mini Keyboard and the Keysonic KB-ACK-540RF+ Radio Frequency Keyboard, really can't recommend the later; KB-ACK-540RF+ hammers through batteries, no touchpad scroll and needs a fair few Off-> On cycles to kick life into it at times.

    I'd suggest it being an area worth spending a few extra £'s on and sticking with a well regarded vendor.
