Sturdy and competent wireless keyboard and mouse set
3 October 2009
Excerpt: This Labtec wireless keyboard and mouse functions very well for the time I have used it and has proven to be a very good purchase. It is a robust set with good design and decent ergonomic consideration for its price range. The keyboard has strong build and key operation is satisfactory remaining consistent in key response over time. Extra keys are provided for media playing, application launching and internet shortcuts.
good value item,has worked well for over one and a half years.

Excerpt: Well I'm sat here using my labtec wireless right now.I needed a good value yet convenient keyboard.and this one is just that.Its not fancy with blue lights or strange vocab printed on the keys.Its a straight forward low budget keyboard and mouse.The keys are very easy to use,the battery lasts a long time and the position of keys are similar to a standard keyboard.The mouse on the other hand was slightely more difficult.I prefer using another branded mouse as this one I...
Summary: Original keyboard and mouse replaced because of recurrent problems with various keys not working. 2nd keyboard has key's jumping out of their housing and receiver really temperamental. Letter stickers wearing off all over the place! If you like your mouse pointer to have an independent spirit with a mind of it's own, merrily doing it's own thing dashing about the screen wildly, whilst the keyboard pretty much writes it's own story and ignoring all your wishes then this...
Summary: I'm sure this is a good product, I've had good experience with Labtec in the past. The units do look sleek and easy to use, and I'm sure if you've got a desktop it will provide a good replacement for your current wired keyboard and mouse (for that price anyway). BUT, I've just received this product from Amazon, and realised that the wireless receiver plugs into the computer by PS/2 connections.
Summary: I needed a wireless mouse and keyboard and this was a very good deal considering the price. As it uses your computer's PS/2 ports there is no need for the supplied software unless you want to customize the keys. The keyboard is about right in terms of how it is to touch and the mouse is a breeze to use. The instruction manual tells the user how to connect the keyboard and mouse wirelessly yet it does it automatically.
Summary: Opened this just now, straight out of the box, plugged the wires in and it connected to both the keybooard and mouse in seconds, works perfectly without even using the disc, which is only needed if you want to change the shortcut keys. All in all very good value, not usb, but that might be a plus point if you're short of them!! Recommened!
Summary: I unfortunately didn't get on well with this product. After 2 days the mouse wouldn't let me left click on anything on the task bar. And when I entered a game (via the desk top of course), as soon as tried to click on anything it was minimised onto the task bar where I couldn't get to it. I tried a replacement and updates on the labtec site to no avail. Not recommended.
Summary: The labtec wireless desktop is genuinely a very good deal. I highly recomended this product. Although a problem did occour when installing on my computer. As long as you have the operating system disk to recover your pc (just incase this happens to you) you should buy this product, it means you can sit freely anywhere in a room without annoying wires restricting the mouse and keyboard.
A no no for gamers. Okay for the 'word processor' users...but I suppose you can find better.

Excerpt: This was my first wireless keyboard and mouse i've bought. Has all the benefits which a wireless desktop has, including an optical mouse. Can stretch to distances of 5m at the most if you're clear of obstacles. Very impressed with the mouse. Very precise, no lag. Comfortable with finger grooves. Responsive clicks and has a middle scroll button. Has an LED to warn you of low power. However, the mouse is rather bulky and slightly oversized for my liking.
Excerpt: I recently had an accident with my keyboard, and decided I would treat myself and buy a wireless version. I flicked through the Argos and found the Labtech Wireless Desktop Edge for only £14.99. This includes the keyboard, mouse, receiver and batteries. I have only got a small desk, so with a wired keyboard and mouse I was restricted and so had to keep them on my desk due to the wire, however with a wireless keyboard and mouse I can keep them wherever I want to, giving...
