Summary: Product was obviously refurbished; it came in oversized Amazon packaging, which showed no Micorsoft labeling. Keyboard was scratched and mouse sounds broken but does work. Have communicated to Amazon with no response other than a survey on how I liked the packaging.
Summary: I bought this keyboard about 6 months ago. After about 3 months it was hit and miss on working properly. I finally threw it out today because the keyboard only picked up every 3rd keystroke. I attempted to change batteries and sit closer to the computer. Neither of which worked.
Excerpt: Just in case any of you are shpping for a Microsoft® Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 and mouse combo, you might like to know Im tossing my second set out today. Thats two sets in 3 years. Never again. They just stop working. At first a folder kept popping up, the same folder over and over.
Summary: Not sure why Microsoft can't make this work, had an older 3000 version before that worked great but this 5000 doesn't. The keyboard and rest of the mouse works fine but the mouse scroll wheel just jumps and skips all over the place.
Summary: The keyboard is a big ugly slab and the keys feel cheap and are wobbly. Most annoyingly the most useful keys - Escape and the function keys have been shrunk down to miniscule size and tucked behind the much more highly raised number keys making them extremely difficult to access.
Summary: On my example, the keyboard is distorted, and needs some bluetack strategically placed in one corner to stop it rocking to and fro in use. Thus this item cannot be moved about freely. It is of insubstantial build quality and is inferior to my present one, which I have reverted to using The mouse.
