Worst Logitech product ever

Summary: I am a Logitech fan, and use their keyboards, mice, webcams, etc., but this was my biggest disappointment. The keyboard and mouse are great looking, have a nice feel, very ergonomic, especially the mouse, but... the bluetooth keeps loosing connection and you keep staring at the display, waiting for it to reconnect so you can continue to type that urgent email! I tried it with different laptops, and the behavior is the same, so I eventually gave up on it.
Summary: For that price I expected a top-of-the range keyboard, with hihly responsive keys. Instead I am hammerin away on it like mad, and the letter G only appears when I hit it so hard that my finer would kill a rodent mouse were it sittin underneath. Thus also all those missin gs in my review here. I cannot be bothered to correct them - you et an accurate picture. The mouse works quite smoothly, thouh it runs out of power quite quickly.
Summary: Although I love the look at feel of both keyboard and mouse the bluetooth connection is constantly disconnecting. I find it very frustrating that I have to keep a standard cable mouse close by. It defeats the object of being wire-free! For such an expensive product (over £100) it is a complete white elephant and a waste of money.
Summary: Hi, I have now been through four or five of these keyboards and really am surprised at the quality (or lack of) of this product from Logitech. I have other products from the same company which are great and of good quality but this is not one of them. The mouse is great - other than having to download a third party piece of software to get the middle button to work as I wanted to i.e. closing the tabs in firefox. The keyboard seems to have design faults.
Summary: Bought this as the HUD on the keyboard showing details of mail, temperature and date/time, but unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. First, the Unread Mail wasn't accurate. I had two unread mail in my box, it read 3. I read all my emails, and carried on what I was doing, the display said 1 unread email even though there were no unread emails.
Summary: UPDATE!!!! Logitech sent me a new replacement - the bluetooth connectivity is even worse than the first... ------------------------ This is my first review of a product - I feel that strongly!!! THE KEYBOARD I bought this as it was advertised as a 'programmable keyboard'. Now I used to have G15 - a truely programmable keyboard.
Summary: Great looking keyboard & mouse, really looks the part! But... small function keys, high 'humped' keyboard, lack of positive action on the keys on fast usage, annoying dynamic zoom clicking (thankfully can be switched off), flaking rubber coating on the mouse - a most vile idea, Logitech!, lets this combo down. Also the keyboard needs 4 AA batteries! On the positive side, the mouse functions very well with fairly accurate tracking.
