Fine for work, bad for gaming

brendan d., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Summary: At first i thought, bad on me for buying a bluetooth mouse and keyboard for gaming but my work is even impacted.
  • Pros: nice feel on both mouse and keyboard for my style. Mouse is accurate when working.
  • Cons: I own two of these. One at my office and one at my home. All four devices will periodically lose connection and become unresponsive. The keyboards are worse than the mice. The mice seem to only have this problem at low battery or when the bluetooth adapter is located too close to another adapter ...

Nice feel, poor functionality

Matthew R., Newegg
23 June 2014
  • Summary: I have tried to reinstall the driver, making sure to completely uninstall the previous (including removing relevant keys from the registry) and checking to see if the batteries were low. I would recommend only getting the mouse.
  • Pros: This keyboard and mouse combo comes at a good price with the mouse performing just as expected. The keyboard feels nice on your wrists/hands and the keys are large enough so even my fingers can accurately hit keys while it sits on my lap! The keyboard has a lot of features on it, such as the volu...
  • Cons: The mouse is excellent, no complaints there. But the keyboard is troublesome. This will sound exaggerated, but I tested this with a tape measure and was saddened by what I found. With the receiver on the usb extender, my keyboard would not function beyond 3 ft of the receiver. Not even that, if i...

  • Summary: This is the second unit I've had and they have both exhibited the same behavior after some time, usually within the first year.
  • Pros: Comfortable, lots of nice features
  • Cons: After a while the keys start sticking, the mouse hangs, quits scrolling and has to be reset.

disappointing

Ron D., Newegg
8 May 2013
  • Summary: I've used Logitech products for years, the Logitech keyboard and mouse I replaced with this combo worked great for nearly 10 years of fairly heavy use. I was looking forward to getting the upgrade.
  • Pros: Keyboard and mouse, one receiver. Keyboard is nice, or would be if it weren't for the con. Mouse is good, except for the con.
  • Cons: Keyboard would be excellent, but the spacebar doesn't register unless you press it dead center, firmly. So if you type properly and use your thumbs to press the spacebar, 25-90% of your spacebar presses will not go through. It will also sometimes insert 2 spaces for no obvious reason. The mouse w...

Mouse Fails ; Wireless inteference

Prabuddha B., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: DONOT get this device for gaming use.
  • Pros: -Very ergonomic - Comfortable to use - works with unified wireless usb
  • Cons: - Mouse that I got did not response well, the one that I got might have been defective - The wireless gets a lot of interference which may be due to the use of similar frequency bands with other devices -very poor overall performance

Disappointing

Robert T., Newegg
17 December 2012
  • Summary: I've had a lot of Logitech mice and keyboards and so far I've been happy with them. But this one became an RMA in the end. I went back to my MX-518 and a new Microsoft wired keyboard.
  • Pros: Keyboard feels nice to the touch, as does the palm rest. Keys feel ok but quite soft response. Mouse has good shape and feels good in your hand. The RF receiver is tiny and does not take a lot of space.
  • Cons: Keyboard layout is unconventional and takes a lot of getting used to. The separation of the function keys into groups of three instead of four is very annoying if you are gaming and can't find the F5 key since you're used to the space between F4 and F5. Also, the home/del etc. buttons are layed o...

Unhappy

Zachary L., Newegg
25 October 2012
  • Summary: I generally buy Logitech products, and am generally quite pleased. I really wish my 1st-gen G7 mouse still worked, I'd still be using it :/ I still plan on buying Logitech products in the future, just wish I hadn't purchased this.
  • Pros: They work? For the most part.
  • Cons: Function keys in groups of 3 (should have noticed this, but who looks?) instead of 4. No way to disable power key on keyboard that I can find. Keys are a bit quiet/soft for my liking, but I like to make noise when I type. With authority! The keyboard is fine, though, basically. It's the mouse... ...

frequent and annoying problems

Balvinder B., Newegg
26 September 2012
  • Summary: I've always considered Logitech to be a trusted brand in all aspects of not only computing hardware, but general multimedia interfaces as well, and I still believe it. However, even Logitech drops the ball sometimes, and they certainly fumbled hard with this one.
  • Pros: Ergonomic and comfortable design, highly programmable shortcut keys
  • Cons: Signal reception is terrible, frequently seizes up for a few seconds before processing my entries as has been stated repeatedly from other reviews I've read. The keyboard is only about 3 feet away from the receiver so there's no reason why the connection should be so flaky. It's annoying how many...

User Review

JFL, NCIX.com
25 September 2012
  • Summary: The keyboard is comfortable with the "wave", unfortunately the layout is not standard (or at least different from the keyboard I'm using at work). For example, I keep pressing F4 instead of F5. The mouse is ok, except that it is a bit small for my hand.
  • Pros: Keyboard wave is comfortable, wireless.
  • Cons: Can't get used to the layout of the keyboard
