Good sound, solid connection, too many batteries!

Summary: Speakers have great sound with a easy USB hookup, keyboard and mouse maintain a solid connection with almost no signal dropage. Best all-in-one kit I've ever ordered. Problems: I ordered it because I specifically put in "wireless keyboard for MAC" unfortunately, it DOES NOT work with a MAC. Disappointing! I ended up giving it as a gift to a PC using friend. Also, the mouse uses AAA and the keyboard uses AA. Not a huge issue, but can be costly.
Summary: I was tired of the quirky touch pad on my laptop and missed having the extended number pad on my laptop keyboard, so I decided to purchase a wireless mouse and keyboard. I looked at a number of different options and decided on the logitech combo pack. I really did not need the speakers, but the total price for the three was cheaper than any other keyboard/mouse combo I had seen. Because of that I was a little sceptical of the quality and how easy it would be to use.
Summary: I AGREE WITH POSITIVE REVIEWS EXCEPT I encounter periodic FREEZES of BOTH mouse and keyboard. The only way to restore normal function is to TURN OFF. After tuning XP desktop back on it works fine again. It MAY work normally for many hours or only minutes. There is no particular pattern to above problem. I'm uncomfortable with the above "ON and OFF." Don't think this is recommended for any PC.
Excerpt: Until recently we had this as a set, however an accident involving a mouse and a wall means that the reliability of the mouse was fully tested and didn't make it, the keyboard however still works perfectly, but has been parted from its natural partner. We originally bought this mouse keyboard combination partly because it was wi-fi, also because it was Logitech which seems to have a good name for itself and finally because it perfectly matched our computer in colour and...
Excerpt: Up until around six months ago I had no use for a keyboard or mouse because I was using a laptop. Unfortunately due to an accident which involved a cup of tea being spilt on to the base of my laptop I suddenly found myself needing both of the above to go with an old Dell PC I luckily had lying around.
Summary: Does the job it's supposed too. But the mouse batteries go after about a month or two. Wireless connection can go funny with the keyboard now and again - keys sticking - but just pressing the red connect button solves that.
Summary: For me the keyboard layout and buttons are near perfect aswell as the mouse BUT there are no caps lock or num lock light indicators on the keyboard at all. I don't know why logiteck did this but when you are first using this keyboard it id extremly annoying but once use get used to the layout you don't press the caps lock button anymore and it isn't realy a problem.
Summary: I'm using the keyboard and mouse as we speak, bought for £25 from Asda (couldent be fussed with waiting for a delivery) on connecting PC recognised the reciever straight away and tada off we go, much quicker than my experience with the first wireless desktop sets to come out. Reciever: Plugs into one USB port and has a nice length to the wire.
