Summary: I have bought 2 mk250's. they functioned for just under a year then irrevocably broke down. A waste of money. I then bought 2 of the next model, the mk 230 which have not lasted a year each. What is a very good product is spoiled by un reliability. Shame.
Summary: After a couple of years use it's still fine. Good positive keyboard 'feel' and 2 AAA batteries lasted 3 years. Not a refined keyboard (quite clunky) but I like that - no accidental keystrokes.
Summary: After 6 months the left mouse button started making a really annoying loud spring noise when releasing the click. Also, unless rechargeable batteries are supposed to be used, the mouse battery life is short. Not changed the k'brd batteries in 1 year though. The keyboard easily bends after being packed in a rucksack so needs bending back again else it wobbles. Not the same quality as my previous logitech stuff 8 years ago.
The end and home key are actually in a more intuitive place!

Summary: I'll be brief with this one, I've been on a bit of a reviewing blitz this evening. This set is excellent value for money. To the person who said having the 'end' and 'home' key in different places to standard keyboards is a bad point, I'd say they are actually in more intuitive positions (being side-by-side rather than on top of each other). Also I think someone mentioned it is too flat.
Summary: I've had this keyboard for a year now before reviewing as I wanted to be sure it was robust and reliable. I was very happy with it from the start, it's comfortable to use and the signal range is excellent so i can work on my big telly quite a distance from my PC when I want to. I'm happy to report it's been solid and robust and well worth the very reasonable price.
Summary: Pros: - Cheap - Long Battery Life - Quiet Mouse Clicks - Light Cons: - Occasional keyboard lag - Short Wireless Range - I've noticed sometimes, very rarely though the mouse doesn't click. - Low DPI Mouse, but what do you expect for $29 - Low Quality, Even for $29 Overall, I think this mouse is NOT worth buying - I suggest you go for a slightly better combo. It's very short wireless range makes it useless if you don't sit at a computer desk.
Summary: This is a wireless keyboard and mouse kit. You will not believe the rate at which the mouse consumes batteries! I have chosen these words carefully. The vast numbers of batteries that have needed to be recharged or replaced is not believable! This is a great nuisance. Also, you cannot programme the mouse, although you can calibrate the wheel. The keyboard is OK.
