Summary: I purchased this keyboard from HP as a replacement for several others. The keyboard functions flawlessly. I did have problems with the mouse regarding the "brake" on the roller (the little button behind the roller) not working as it was designed. It kept disengaging, letting the scrole wheel "freewheel", but that seems to have resolved itself.
Summary: I bought this combo to replace a 4 year old Microsoft combo. The mouse is great. The keyboard has great features but the keys are irritatingly noisy to the point that I put it away and returned to the Microsoft keyboard. I can't recommend this combo.
Summary: Funny i was just debating on putting up a review on this keyboard since i saw it on sale again. My gripe is with the keyboard and the new direction logitech went with the key design. After a year of usage the keys started to creak stick and have friction making it very difficult to type and causes mistakes. I have to note that my keyboard is on a pull out shelf so it's never exposed and I've never spilled anything on it, moisture, dust, etc.
Pros: Great mouse, good range, good response. Love the keyboard resting pad.
Summary: Purchased this for an employee that needed a good keyboard and mouse. Unfortunately I just noticed that the letters on the keys are wearing away already and I think the keyboard is about 13 months old. I've got cheaper keyboards that are 3 or 4 years old that show no signs of the letters wearing off.
Summary: I love the features of this set, however, it just doesn't last. I've had this for a little over a year. First, within months the keys started to stick. I thought maybe it was dirty, but if that was the case, the same keys would stick. In my case, I never know which key is going to stick. I'm a programmer, so this ends up costing me lots of extra work. I'm constantly mistyping things.
Excerpt: I was looking for a keyboard to replace my Dell (Logitech) Bluetooth 6 years old. New drivers not available. I checked out several and wanted side to side wheel scrolling - great for large spreadsheets and an indicator for CAPS lock. I use several legacy programs where CAPS are required. This had both. All good. I do not however, like the keyboard key height.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features
Excerpt: My old mouse and keyboard worked fine except the batteries went dead in a matter of weeks. When I found this one that claims the batteries last three years I had to give it a try. So far so good. The mouse is very sensitive and sometimes hard to control, but I am getting used to it. They keyboard is very quiet and has different adjustments for height. I ordered online and had a coupon so the price was very good and the shipping very fast.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
Summary: Wave pattern takes a bit to get used to. I'm at the keyboard for many hours at a time for work, and I haven't noticed that the keyboard wave pattern adds any comfort benefit. In my opinion, the profile of the keys are too high. This causes strain on my fingers. Some of the keys are oddly placed, and you may make repetitive typos until you retrain yourself. Palm rest is nice, and the mouse is responsive.
Looks nice but does not have the soft keys as described.

Summary: I purchased this keyboard based on the soft key description, however, the keys are hard and feel just as bad as a basic keyboard. The mouse is basic but functional - I purchased a Logitech M705 mouse which works well with the keyboard. I give this keyboard 3 stars because it looks nice and all the other features are nice ... shortcut keys, wrist rest, and display ... otherwise, I would give it a 2.
