Good keyboard and mouse?

I was thinking about getting the xenta wireless keyboard and mouse. They are pretty cheap and i need wireless ones because there is so much wires on my desk and its annoying and my big klunky microsoft keyboard is a bit old now. If you have suggestions go ahead but im thinking of these:

I really wouldn't go for cheap wireless devices. Signal quality tends to be very poor.

If you can push it, go for wired.

That would be far better than the Xenta mouse.

If you do need wireless - I used to use:
http://www.ebuyer.com/166189-microso...rack-mfc-00007

Which I found pretty good signal wise and fairly responsive.

If you're using the wireless peripherals for gaming then you may notice a bit of lag with them. If it's just for general use then they should be alright

Im not one for lots of mouse buttons i find it annoying, i will probably just get the xenta keyboard & mouse and then if they turn out to be rubbish ill sell them to my brother and ill just get something better quality. Ive seen reviews of them and they seem to be mediocre quality And i dont think i have room on my desk for a logitech wave :P
