Summary: Bought this combo new and within 3 months the mouse wheel had become loose/wobbly. Contacted Logitech to RMA and of course have to ship the entire combo back. - Week 1: Send the entire combo and use an old keyboard/mouse - Week 2: No replacement. Call and they say "Oops!
Pros: - Bluetooth - Stylish - Good Battery life
Cons: - Keyboard keys stick unless pressed *directly* on center - Mouse input frequently becomes "jumpy" and requires a reconnect - Bluetooth connection occasionally drops out for a second then reconnects - Range feels very poor as mouse becomes less responsive at more than about 3 feet - Poor price/pe...
Cons: Keyboard is missing numlock key. In its place is "Clear calc" which transmits as backspace. Dealing with support usually ends up with you being told you don't need a numlock key, or to open the on-screen keyboard to use it. Im still researching work arounds (the one i found had been 'fixed' throu...
Pros: The mouse is excelent in every way. Holds charge very well, has excellent range and fits my big hand perfectly.
Cons: Too bad the keyboard does'nt have the same quality the mouse has. Very flimsy legs,( one has broken), keyboard screen is difficult to see, no lights indicating number lock, scroll lock, etc.. The most glaring problem is it's unreliable connectivity. It randomly drops connection becoming auseless ...
Summary: Still looking for one comparable to my G15 which I loved and had used for years of good service.
Cons: Originally bought this for my husband. Keys kept sticking and very hard to type with. Bought him a different one and I took this one over after spilling coffee on my favorite Logitech G15. Now I do not like this one either. Key letters have worn off and very hard typing. Now looking for a better ...
Summary: They would be awesome if they worked consistently. I'm really disappointed that I shelled out so much money with such horrible results.
Pros: Blue Tooth Support Lots of Features
Cons: Loss of connectivity - At least 3-4 times a week I would have to remove and add device. I was mostly using the mouse with my Laptop and on occasion would use keyboard when using laptop as a desktop replacement. Tried multiple sets of drivers with no success. Got a blue tooth dongle for my home th...
Summary: I have purchased two of these sets. One is 2 years old and the other is a year old. After the first year, the left mouse button quit working. That's right. The LEFT mouse button. The mouse continued to track just fine and everything else worked so this was not a connectivity problem.
Summary: The hardware feels well made, but the connectivity is terrible. Logitech really needs to fix this.
Pros: Solid look and feel. Mouse worked without any problems. Momentum scrolling is nice.
Cons: Connectivity. Keyboard and Mouse connected, but didn't function until I installed Toshiba's bluetooth management software. Installation also disrupted the performance of my Wacom Intuos4, which worked flawlessly up until that point. Keyboard would lag repeatedly. The last straw was when it cut ou...
Summary: because of getting hosed on this, thinking it was a great keyboard and with other issues with some of their other over priced products I have had made by Logitech this keyboard and mouse will be my last logitech purchases.
Pros: great mouse if you don't do a lot of serious gaming, keyboard not so great
Cons: has a really nice number pad TO BAD THERE IS NO NUM LOCK SO YOU CAN USE IT. According to their tech support FAQ's it is supposed to be active as a number pad all the time this IS A CROCK! mine has never worked and there is not even an option in software to make it work as a number pad. It seems t...
