Just sold my bluetooth combo and got the Sidewinder X4 keyboard and X5 mouse. Perfect setup for me. I love the glow in the dark keys and macros, along with profiles. I have 6ft extension usb cables so length is not an issue for me.

It really depends on what you want to do. Most of the suggestions I see here don't let you game very well, especially for the taller individuals on this forum.

I had this same problem and after consideration, I found you sacrifice way to much IMO by using a coffee table, lap board, or laptop tray table/dinner tray table. All lack comfort and control.

My solution was a folding table but this one only had a width of 24 inches and 48 inches long. Its small, compact, and hides easily. You can get them from school supply stores local and online. The key is the 24 inch width, it makes it perfect for being inbetween the couch and TV.

I am working on getting this to work for me. How does Xpadder work with multiple games? Do you have to set it up every time for a particular game or is there a way for the setup of buttons to occur automatically?
