Very Poor Range.

Summary: Range is less then half a meter which for my media center is useless.. Also try using it on my desktop but it was out of range I would have to put my big tower on top of desk for it to work.. so useless for my pc and media center.. It's now in my bin and will end up on a landfill. I now got a logitech mk250 off amazon for [...] and its lot better and the range is 10 meters..
Summary: I ordered this keyboard from Amazon.co.uk because I wanted a UK keyboard. When it was delivered it was a German keyboard. I called customer service and they said they would send a replacement and ensure it was a UK keyboard but when the new one arrived it again was a German keyboard.
Summary: I bought this product in the hope of reducing the cable spagetthi around my computer on the floor and on my desk. Unfortunately you have to attach the receiving device of this product to a cable and place it very closely to the keyboard and mouse, and even then it does not work very reliaby, that is, it misses like every 5th stroke of the keyboard if you type at an average speed.
Summary: The quality of the actual keyboard and mouse in this set is acceptable for the money and it was set up and ready to use easily but the fatal flaw is the range of the devices. They would only work reliably when within 3ft of the receiver and no response at all from about 4ft away. This is less than most cabled keyboards and mice so it's hard to see the point.
Summary: People Please Please do not buy this product. Iam sorry i wos persuaded by the price and the 2 good reviews for this product. Unfortunately these reviews were wrong. This product looks really nice, it feels sleek, and sits low on your table. However for all its asthetics qualitiys the lag time of both the keyboard and mouse is depressing. I am completly confused why labtec have created such a frustrating product.
Summary: The labtec media wireless desktop turned up quickly and in good condition, but I was very disappointed by the range over which they operate. (unfortunately the tech spec on Amazon didn't list the range). It's fine if you want to keep your mouse and keyboard close to your computer (or less than a meter away) - but no good if you are wanting to operate over longer distances (unless you fancy trailing the reciever out onto a USB extention line - which kind of defeats the...
