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. This keyboard is a POS, do not waste your time buying this product. You will be sorry after a very short time.
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. I searched for months for the cause.
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. Why would Microsoft do this? Because they added an additional row of extra large keys to launch your mail client and to access your picture library?!? I mean really?
Please avoid wasting your money on this set unless you want RSI.

Excerpt: I amr eally struggling to see how Microsoft can market this keyboard and mouse combination as a comfort set. I have owned this desktop set for a little over 6 months now and regret buying it. As I am sure many people did, I purchased this set as I wanted interacting with the computer to not put strain on my wrists, hands, fingers etc...
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.
Conclusion: Tastaturet skal være "ergonomisk", men for hvem, og til hvilken bruk? Det fungerer dårlig for meg - eksempler: 1. ESC-tasten er veldig liten og så nedsenket at den er vanskelig å få tak i. Jeg bruker den hele tiden, og med dette tastaturet taper jeg mye tid. 2. Venstre skift- og CTRL-tast er veldig liten, og dermed vanskelig å treffe. Jeg bruker akkurat den mombinasjonen veldig mye - nå treffer jeg ikke. Hvem i all verden kom på ideen med en slik utforming??? 3.
