Everyone needs a keyboard and mouse, but most people don't need to spend a ton of time and/or money to get something that works well. A go-to keyboard and mouse combo needs to be both affordable and highly functional for most of us.
Our top pick, the Logitech’s MK850 Performance wireless mouse and keyboard (available at Best Buy Canada), is getting harder to track down. However, it’s still our favourite mouse and keyboard combo overall. That said, there are some really good options on the market—more affordable sets than the MK850, as well as some that are fancier and more expensive. But whatever your budget or application, you are sure to find something to love below.
These are the best keyboard and wireless mouse combos we tested that are available to buy in Canada.
1. Logitech MK850 Performance
The Logitech MK850 Performance was our favourite back in 2017 and, despite everything to come out since then, it's still the top dog where most users are concerned. These high-quality peripherals won't look out of place on any desk, and they feel as great as they look. The mouse in this set was very similar to the expensive Logitech MX Master 2s, one of the best mice you can buy. It's fully featured, ergonomic, and won't hurt your hand after hours of work.
The keyboard feels nice to type on, as it doesn't have overly long key throws. Its comfortable wrist rest and adjustable rear feet let you use it flat or at a 4- or 8-degree angle. Labels for Windows and Mac keyboard shortcuts are good for users with all kinds of mainstream PCs, and the ability to pair the keyboard and mouse with three devices (either with Logitech's USB Unifying Receiver or Bluetooth) makes this set the most flexible by far.
That unified USB receiver design is another great reason to buy one of these sets over the more expensive options like Microsoft's Surface line or Apple's keyboard and Magic Mouse combo. Though we love the design language used by Microsoft and Apple for those products, they're not available as a set, driving the cost up to well over $200 for either option.

2. Logitech MK270
This model is a perennial top-seller on Amazon—at this point, it has over 17,000 reviews, many of which are positive —and it lives up to the hype. If you don't need a fancy keyboard and mouse, you can't go wrong with this sub-$50 combo. Logitech knows how to make great, affordable PC accessories, and this is one of them.
In our typing test, we could sustain speeds over 80 wpm (words-per-minute) without much trouble. The only downside is that the mouse is dinky and better suited to a child's hand than a grown person's, but it's not a huge issue for the price. This set comes with the AA and AAA batteries you'll need to power it and utilizes several handy features, such as storage for in the mouse for your USB dongle when you're not using it.
Lastly, if you're a power user who doesn't want to spend big bucks on a mouse/keyboard combo, you can still get quite a bit done with this set. The keyboard has eight programmable hotkeys, meaning you can set them up to access frequently used programs. One last thing to note is that the MK270 is not a "unifying" keyboard/mouse set, though it originally was. This means that the dongle is not a universal Logitech variety and will only work this particular combo—something to keep in mind if you planned on using it with legacy dongles.

3. Dell Premier Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard and Mouse (KM7321W)
If you prefer an elegant, minimalist keyboard for your desktop, Dell’s Premier Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard will bring a smile to your lips. It’s a full keyboard with 109 keys, including 12 programmable function keys. The aluminum board has relatively large keys with scissor switches and it’s easy to type accurately at speed. There isn’t much travel, but it’s whisper quiet.
The Titan Grey finish is matched by the mouse, which boasts seven buttons (five are programmable) and an adjustable DPI (dots-per-inch) of between 1,000 and 4,000, which is sensitive enough for most people. Both keyboard and mouse are wireless and work flawlessly with the dongle provided, and there’s a storage slot for it in the mouse. The mouse takes a single AA battery, and the keyboard takes two AAA batteries, all supplied in the box and promising up to 36 months of life.
The keyboard also offers 128-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) in case you’re concerned about wireless keystrokes being intercepted. This is a particularly good keyboard and mouse combo for people working with multiple devices, as you can switch between up to three at the click of a button and there’s support for RF 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth 5.0 connections.

4. Logitech MK550
Logitech's MK550 set was the only traditional-style ergonomic keyboard and mouse set we tried. With its Wave-shape and long key presses, it reminded us of Microsoft's now-famous Ergonomic 4000 keyboard. It has a big wrist rest, prominent media keys, and even a chunky zoom toggle. It comes with a good-not-great mouse that we found fit our hands well.
But, there's a catch: the long throw of the keys made us more prone to mistakes in our typing test. If you're used to flat laptop keyboards and prefer keys that don't move quite so much, this could make for a very frustrating typing experience. Otherwise, its lack of convenient features made it less desirable than our top pick.

5. Logitech MX900 Performance
Logitech’s newer, high-end mouse and keyboard combo takes most of the great things about the MK850 and updates them with modern conveniences like “advanced” keyboard backlighting that turns off and a rechargeable battery version of Logitech’s MX mouse with a more precise sensor. We found the MX 900 surprisingly comfortable but were dismayed to see that the keyboard didn’t have some of the most interesting features found on the MK850, like the ability to pair and swap among multiple devices. (The mouse has it, but not the keyboard.)
Plus, at around $200, you’re spending more than twice as much as you would on our starter pick for some nominal quality-of-life improvements that come with some tradeoffs. At this price, why bother with the combo when you could get Logitech’s best productivity-focused keyboard, the MX Keys, and best mouse, the MX Master 3, for a little more?

6. Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000
Microsoft's affordable Wireless Desktop 2000 set is a solid option. Its mouse made the most positive impression, sliding into our palms comfortably. It was among the best mice we tried for this roundup, and if you experience discomfort in your fingers after using a mouse for long durations, it's worth considering.
The keyboard, on the other hand, is something of a let-down. Its keys and construction are behind many of the keyboards we tried for this roundup. Additionally, the wireless USB adapter is way bigger than average and can't be safely stowed semi-permanently in a laptop's USB port.

7. Logitech MK320
Logitech's middle-of-the-road wireless desktop set gets the job done, but it's not our favourite. The MK320 was comparable to our budget pick and it's less widely available to boot. In our tests, we found this keyboard provided an accurate typing experience at speeds of over 80 wpm.
Keyboard aside, the mouse in this set is very small and not comfortable for long-term use. If you can get a discount on this combo, we think you'll like it well enough, but just know that there are better and more widely available options out there right now.

8. Logitech MK520
Even though most of Logitech's keyboard/mouse combo sets we tried were good, this keyboard was the only out-and-out disappointment. The flat keys and short button presses led us to make too many mistakes in our typing test. The keyboard looks attractive enough, but it's not exactly easy to use.
For the money, we also found the mouse to be puny and disappointing for the price premium this set carries. Either pay more to get the more ergonomic MK550 or save $20 by opting for the good-enough MK270 set.
