Wireless keyboard and mouse combo

Sun Jun 22, 2014 3:35 pm

Hi all
I'm looking to buy a wireless keyboard and mouse that both transmit to one USB dongle which plugs into the Pi. I was wondering whether anyone has any experiences of these and any thoughts on which are the best models.
My only requirements are that it's a real mouse not a trackpad, and that both the keyboard and mouse are not compact or mini versions which are hard to get used to.
I'm willing to spend up to £25.
Thanks in advance :D

Some "wireless combo's" may require more current than the Pi's (low power, 100mA) ports can supply, whilst the "mini-keyboard & trackball" linked to below, does not quite meet your requirements it does work well, once you've got "used to it" (and has the advantage of entertaining/diverting the cat, should you have one :) )

Still running Raspbian Jessie on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W) but Stretch on my 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm
