    Help Wireless backlit keyboard and mouse - UK Layout?

    Hi all.
    I'm after a wireless keyboard/mouse that is backlit. I don't mind a gaming one, but trying to find one with a UK layout seems very difficult.
    The ebay/amazon ones that promote UK, on examination all appear to US layout, but as I want one to actually type with (rather than game). having the ? and " symbols in the right place are important to me.

    I really don't want a wired one.

    Any advise/suggestions/recommendations please?

    Thanks, IBB

    I assume you mean by UK layout, that the Pound sign is above the letter 3 & the @ sign is by the Return key ?

    Just came back from Home Bargains, & they have a cheap Backlit Kb & mouse in there for about ?12.
    The website says no online stock, but they had them in the store.

    The Logitech MX is a semi-swanky one that it looks like has either started making the UK cap layout for the UK market, or is possibly blending them together and putting both symbols on the appropriate keys.

    There's also a company called Jelly Comb that does what you want, but you can only get their UK-layout keyboards on Amazon.

    After that you're looking at proper gaming keyboard nonsense ? ?150+ ? bells, whistles and fireworks.
