Excerpt: Two things that I find immediately annoying. 1. The Function Keys are way TOO SMALL. At work I have to use F2 and F7 often and coupled with the glare on them makes using them more difficult. 2. The fact that there is NO Caps Lock indicator is mind boggling, that MS didn't include that feature. This would annoy most people, imo. In the meantime I'm getting used to using this and the 2 points I made so far are the only things bugging me about this keyboard.
Summary: I bought this keyboard to replace a Logitech mk520 I had. It is a sleek looking keyboard and mouse but misses a few key components that I think would make it much better. First of all there is no mute button. The volume controls are there but no way to easily mute your computer without just holding down the volume-down button.
Excerpt: Keyboard & mouse are of good design but the on/off switch on the mouse could have been designed to be a bit more accessible. The switch is recessed and you have to use a fingernail to slide it on or off. I am having an issue with the keyboard not responding to my keystrokes or skipping every other entry. When I place the keyboard on the desktop within 8" of the receiver it functions properly.
Summary: I needed a basic wireless keyboard and mouse so that I could sit in my favorite lounge chair and control the laptop that is permanantly placed in an entertainment unit and is connected to the TV. This does the trick. I find the mouse to be a bit oversized compared to other remote keyboard/mouse combos I've purchased but it works fine and gets the job done.
Excerpt: I bought this keyboard mainly on price and brand. it's sturdy but is high. The keystrokes are bouncy and a little narrow than the HP keyboard I replaced. The wireless mouse that comes with it is bulky and heavy like a solid rock. The wheel on the mouse is super smooth. What I missed most from my HP keyboard is the wider key and a little moon shape button that put my computer to sleep when pressed. I have to put my computer to sleep by press Start menu then Sleep.
Excerpt: Easy to set up, just plug in and it works. No brainer Downside: mouse click sound is too loud, the cap Lock key is too big, always hit it by mistake. Number pad should have a led nite to know its on or not.
Summary: Users with large hands should be wary. It's difficult to transition from a larger keyboard to this one due to the close proximity of the keys. Pay particular attention to the home, end, pg up and pg down keys which are wedged between the num pad and the main keyboard area.
Excerpt: The keyboard is functional, but the position of the delete (backup?) key is not easy to find. I use this for an instrument in a laboratory setting, and sometimes the lights are not on full brightness. Using tactile memory alone, it is not easy to find the backup key so that a single character can be replaced in a datafile name or file extension.
