Need a "quiet" keyboard and mouse
 
I need a keyboard and mouse that doesn't make so much noise when I type or click on it.

I have a light sleeper in the room with me when I do most of the typing/clicking (gaming),
and due to my hectic schedule, the only have time to play a game or two around 1~2am.


Anyone know of a mouse that doesn't make the clicking sound or a soft keyboard?

I have an MS Comfort Curve 2000 keyboard. It has low profile scissor switch keys that are pretty quiet. It's also available for like $14-$20 and is a great feeling keyboard imo. I love mine.

I also have this MS notebook mouse (there's a bigger desktop brother to it too) which my wife really likes for the very reason you want one, "low impact clicking". Persoanly I did not like the mouse myself, I use a Logitech MX Anywhere for the laptop but she tells me my incessant clicking on it drives her nutz lol.

If you want QUALITY then Logitech is your answer.

Can you enlighten us please... exactly which Logitech is going to meet his needs? Do you have anything at all helpful to say to anyone other than one liners exuding your fanboyness? Honestly if you want to help people, help them! Don't use this forum as a place to blanket every post with a pointless fanboy comment.

I like my Microsoft keyboards way more than any of the Logitech ones I have used. I am currently using the Microsoft Natural Wireless Ergo 7000 series keyboard and mouse and love both of them. It is pretty quiet but not so quiet your roommate won't hear it. Maybe buy your roommate some earplugs if the noise bothers them that much?

Logitech keyboards are great, but quiet isn't an adjective I would generally associate with them. I have found Microsoft keyboards to make less noise, though I'm not especially fond of the feel.

You could just 'sound' proof the room by hanging curtains about an inch or two away from the walls and it will eat up all the sound

That would reduce the sound exiting the room, but wouldn't do much to stop it from traveling within it.

I would go for one of the thin low profile laptop-style ones. I notice that they tend to make a lot less noise
