This is my user review of what worked and what didn't work well with FFXIV.
I bought the Logitech Wireless Backlit Keyboard. It is awesome. Bought it months ago and it hasn't needed to be re-charged even once yet.
It has a motion sensor that lights up the keys before you even begin typing. And it clearly turns the keyboard off completely when there is no input to conserve battery life.
Best $99 purchase for a PC peripheral.
The Logitech Wireless Rumblepad 2 controller is also superior to the wireless 360 controller. The 360 wireless controller turns itself off when not in use for a bit and then requires you to log out of FFXIV before the game will recognize it again. The Logitech Controller does not have this problem. I can AFK for an hour and then pick it up and start playing.
Furthermore, you cannot set a dead zone for 360 controllers, even the wired kind, which results in your character running off in a random direction at times. After returning 2 of the 360 controllers to find one that did not have lose thumbsticks, I finally returned the third for a full refund and followed the advice of other posters here - purchase the Logitect Wireless Rumblepad 2. Very pleased to find that the Logitech controller is pin-point accurate.
These are my two favorite wireless peripherals for use with FFXIV. I hope others find this useful.
