DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME & MONEY

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.
