  4. I have had some bad luck with Logitech wireless (mostly rechargeable headphones) the mini USBs always seem to break after a few months no matter how careful you are, that being said I do use a pair of Artemis 933s headphones and the new trackball mx ergo mouse which is awesome I haven't used any other type of mouse in the last 10 years ( I hate mouse pads and just the way that you need to always have a flat surface) so I don't see a problem with the mice also their keyboards are decent but ill stick with my corsair Cheers and a merry Christmas

I am not trying to make anyone feel guilty or bad I am just hoping to a awaken a certain
