Again, here at Dual Monitors Guide we emphasize that each computer user has its own unique comfort and ergonomic needs. What works well for others doesn’t necessarily mean a good choice for everyone. However, if you feel overwhelmed with the number of choices out there, here are some of our favorite products.

If you’re looking for a good quality keyboard for office use, then you have a lot of affordable options. One of them is the Kensington Pro Fit Wired Comfort keyboard.

Another thin profile that sports a laptop-like feel is the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard K740. It is reasonably priced, if not affordable, and is elegantly designed to fit to your work desk nicely. It has laser-etched backlight keys, with manual brightness adjustments.

For hardcore gamers looking for good keyboard and mouse to pair with your dual monitor or triple monitor gaming setup, then you can opt for mechanical keyboards, as they are well-designed for this purpose.

It takes 24% less space than the standard full-sized keyboard, as it works with one less battery than most Bluetooth keyboards. Unlike many wireless keyboards, including its previous model, this one only needs two AA batteries.


For Mouse


Just like a good keyboard, a good mouse doesn't need to cost a lot of money. There are surely expensive products out there, but many of them have its price only for its extra bells and whistles.

Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse 2.0 for example, looks pretty basic, but has the reliability you need for work use. It has the scroll wheel you need to move through your documents, files, and pages quickly, and it’s well-designed for easy grip.

For avid gamers however, you may need to invest a little extra to get the best out of your mouse.

The Corsair Vengeance M65 for example, may look futuristic with its robot-like design, but it’s a well-designed computer mice that works with extreme precision, comes with dedicated sniper button (perfect for FPS games), 2nd generation control panel (for easy setup and customization), onboard profile storage (for easy access to profiles and settings, settings that you can take with you), adjustable weight system to fit your needs, response time options for your specific games, and aluminum body design to stand the abuse of long hours of daily gaming.

If you want a beautiful and unconventional computer mouse for your work desk, then you can opt for Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Surface Edition, a sleek, snazzy, small, lightweight and doesn’t need wireless dongle. It’s a great accessory for surface tablets as well, and works just fine with compatible computer through Bluetooth.

For Mac users, you have more mouse options than you think.

Apple Magic Mouse may seem the obvious choice, and though it is quite revolutionary on its design and functions (with its multi-touch surface that allow users to click swipe and scroll), it has its limitations. One is that you can’t click both left and right click at the simultaneously, as they share the same large surface button, which instantly rules out its functionality for gaming. The Razer Ouroborous addresses this issue as it is designed for Mac gaming.

It’s not a cheap mouse, but it is certainly the king on top when it comes to gaming for Mac. It has 11 programmable buttons 8200 DPI sensor, plus an adjustable arch, allowing you to switch from claw or grip style. It comes with Mac drivers too, as well, which assures you it will work.

Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX is a versatile mouse that works perfectly well with both Mac and PC, in different surfaces. It’s quite a great piece of hardware when you’re working with your laptop on-the-go. It sports a patented Darkfield Laser Tracking system that angles the laser sensor, allowing you to use the mouse efficiently even in shiny surfaces (glass) – making it the best mouse out there for digital nomads.

If you’re having serious issues with RSI (hand cramps, stiffness, pain on your wrist, etc) then you should check out Evoluent Right Handed VerticalMouse. The shape may seem strange and using it may seem odd at first, but it well-engineered to provide the most comfortable position for your hand with improved accuracy. Plus, it won’t take long to get used to its design.
