Summary: Was not happy about getting a broken keyboard just out of the box. I love'd the layout at work, and wanted one at home too. It's cheap enough that it doesn't seem worth it to send back to get another one, if I can buy one from a different place for the same or less hassle to return and get a new one. Pretty sad about this because NewEgg is a favorite shopping place for my family. NewEgg does a good job in other products, I'll keep them in mind for when I need them.
Pros: Great shape, loved the layout. Shipping was fast and great.
Cons: Was broken when I got it. The keys q-p and 8 and 7 didn't work.
Pros: Price was right, I bought 4 for our computer learning center.
Cons: Space bar is too small. Other special keys are not laid out the way they are on normal keyboards. We, and our students couldn't get used to the keyboard layout, that's why we gave them to Goodwill after less than 6 months. Kept the mice but having problems with the wheel on one of them.
Cons: The backspace key is very small, and the home key is adjacent. The keys have no travel, and are very uncomfortable. The mouse is also of very poor quality. The scroll wheel moves at random, and is impossible to control, and single clicks are sometimes doubled.
Summary: Overall, had the keyboard worked I would have been satisfied with the package deal. Unfortunately they sent me what appears to be a DOA keyboard even though it says it passed QC 11/2007 and the box shows no signs of visible damage. The saving grace of this is the mouse, which is a really great gaming mouse for a budget buyer.
Pros: The mouse is great. Lightweight, smooth movement, mouse wheel slides easily and the mouse clicks are really responsive. Overall this is probably the best mouse I have owned for such a cheap price. Id buy the set again just for another mouse.
Cons: The keyboard doesn't work. I'm not sure if this is a vista compatibility problem or not, as I have tried it on multiple computers all of which are running Vista Ultimate 32bit and it doesn't work on any of them, in fact when booting if I have this thing plugged in it causes the computer to take about an hour to boot. The keystroke return is also kind of clunky, I wouldn't recommend the keyboard.
