I'm getting ready to build my 2nd HTPC and I'm having a little trouble choosing a good keyboard/mouse combo.
I'm currently using an IOGEAR GKM561R. While I like the form factor, size and feel in my hands, it's performance leaves a lot to be desired. It started out really good. But the trackball has gone to crap! It takes a lot of motion to move the mouse across the screen. (My HTPC is connected to my 64" Samsung Plasma, so its a LOT of screen to move the mouse =) ). It looses signal quite frequently even being only 10 feet away from the receiver and in plain site of the receiver.
So I've been searching here on the forums and found a couple options that seem good:
Logitech dinovo Mini
I'm liking the dinovo mini since it has backlighting, a dual purpose trackpad and nice form factor. Not sure if it's worth the price, but looks really sleek.
The K400 looks good too, but lacks the media play/pause, etc buttons and backlighting.
Thoughts/opinions? Are there any other recommendations for me?
