For the mice, I think corded is better, too. You save on batteries and you won't lose the connection, and they're cheaper. I find 2 buttons and a scroll wheel to be all I need, but I'm sure the other buttons would come in handy at times. I think optical mice are still perfectly fine, unless you use the mouse on your leg or the underside of a table a lot. I'd go with the cheaper one, especially if you're just looking at the number of buttons.
As for the keyboards, I like the 2 non-ergo keyboards just because I've never used an ergo one, but that's your preference. It also depends on what functionality you want on it. I get around the net perfectly fine without browser buttons even though I have them. If you just want to type, run to your local Wal Mart and pick up a cheap keyboard there, but those 2 are the 2 I was looking at when I thought about a new keyboard. I might just go with the microsoft one because it has a more standard button layout, but if you like the Logitech (good brand, btw) setup, to with that.
Just one more suggestion: I'd stay away from amazon.com for buying computer stuff. I didn't cross-check the prices on the items you specified, but from other components, amazon has had a 40% markup compared to all other sites I checked. I'd look for those on newegg.com. might find them for cheap.
Just as a side note, I didn't even look at the wireless mice because I won't even consider them until corded mice disappear and the prices come down. I have a hard time justifying over $25 for a mouse, let alone $60!
