Summary: Did not buy from NewEgg. Just opened as Logitech bit the dust. Xmas present so can't return. Used new tested batteries but could use kb/mouse only if within 12 inches of transmitter. Probably useful if you use a usb cable to have transmitter hang over top of kb/mouse on your desk.
Summary: 25 bucks...how can you go wrong? I bought this set over a year ago and still works great. I can be on the patio off my theater room and still use the set (which is a good 30 feet from the receiver on my HTPC build.
Pros: Battery Life is obnoxiously good, range is steller for less than $30 in comparison to $60+ logitec and Microsoft sets. I've had the same AA batteries that CAME WITH the set, lasted like a year! Use it on my HTPC in the theater room.
Cons: Honestly? Uhm...paint started to ware after a year+? LOL It's UNDER 30$ remember????
Summary: For the price and if you want something different, I recomend to by it.
Pros: Very nice design. Slim, small, easy to work with away from the desk. Larger letters on keyboard helps those who have reading glasses. Downloaded sotware from GearHead has keyboard and mouse setup combo software.
Cons: USB dongle is not very good. I had to put a USB extension cord to get it under the monitor. It works perfect now.
Cons: The mouse and keyboard just stop working. Mouse is very jumpy. Keyboard will stop working if you press and hold a button for too long, which is no good if you're playing any games. Seems to get interrupted by any form of EMI; I had it partially under my monitor and it just wouldn't do anything ti...
Summary: Go to Gear Head website> choose download drivers> click on keyboards> click on KB5500W It will be a zip file with three folders: Keyboard, Mouse and Combo. You want to install the setup for the Combo folder.
Pros: Both devices look really nice. The mouse is one of the best I have ever owned.
Cons: Keyboard likes to stop working once in a while- you have to re-seat the batteries. (yes i have only owned this set for less than 24 hours and the keyboard quit once).
Cons: This combo is the junkiest I've seen in a long time. I have had constant trouble with keys sticking (specifically u, 7, 6, y, and Shift). After only a day or so, some keys were also popping out with little coaxing. The mouse runs out of batteries quickly, and now the left button has begun stickin...
Summary: I ended up buying this a few months ago for pretty cheap. I was looking for just a wireless keyboard but the combo was just as cheap. I used the mouse for about 10 minutes and didn't like the feel of it so I switched back to my Logitech but I have been using the keyboard for the last few months.
Pros: Very nice looking keyboard. Very slim with a decent range. USB receiver is small and discreet. Really good battery life on keyboard... I use it every day and have only changed the batteries in it once in a few months.
Cons: No way to customize any of the media buttons on the keyboard. Construction seems some what flimsy but I have yet to have my break (knock on wood!)
