Keyboard is good, mouse has serious construction problems
7 February 2016
Summary: I would not recommend this product.
Pros: Kayboard has no issues
Cons: Mouse scroll wheel has an outer soft silicon/PVC type covering that attracts and accumulates dust between the wheel and covering and slowly stretched out over a period of a few months, making scroll wheel near impossible to use.
Summary: I would recommend the product if mine wasn't bad. The most disapointing thing was that Newegg won't refund or replace the product because I bought it just over 30 days ago. I could understand if I used it for 6 months but this product was bad out of the box.
Pros: The product looked good but...
Cons: The wireless dongle was bad. It installed but the wifi would cutout when the system goes to sleep and system would make plug/unplug sounds like when you plug & unplug the dongle. I have to reboot the system each time to get the wireless back.
Summary: As a developer, I use the Escape and F-keys regularly, and so the key size and travel issues mentioned were deal-breakers for me. Since I got the combo on sale, it was worth it to keep the set for the mouse alone, so after a week of trying to live with the keys, I boxed the keyboard and have used...
Pros: Keyboard Pros: Comfort Curve Low-profile, almost scissor-style-like key travel Nice rubberized palm rest F-lock to keep F-keys in preferred mode Mouse Pros: Great battery life Blu-light technology Good size Low-resistance Scroll-wheel (scrolling is not "clicky")
Cons: Practically-unusable Esc and F1, F2, etc. keys. They are about a third of the height of a standard key, and have a fraction of the depth in key travel, so pressing them is an exercise in digging the very tip of your finger into (and I do mean INTO) the keyboard. Feels like you're pressing somethi...
Terrible, cheap, ergonomic as a brick, save yourself the trouble
2 December 2013
Summary: This is hands down the most un-comfortable office product I have ever touched. Even after paying extra for the "business model" it felt cheap and about as ergonomic as a 2x4. Doesn't work w/ a Mac. I had it out of the box for 5 minutes before I sent it back. ALSO - The USB receiver is HUGE.
Summary: Not worth the 64.99 that I paid for it. Won't ever order another microsoft product again. Microsofts Customer Service once again fell through.
Pros: the only pro I can think of is it's wireless
Cons: where do I start?.. mouse wheel very draggy ( no smoothness at all) it catches and don't scroll properly. Keyboard awkward, not finger friendly. Buttons are sticking like glue to the keyboard. Keys are not very responsive.
Summary: I tried using this keyboard for a week. Typing paragraphs, gaming, 3D modeling, using Photoshop & Paint Shop Pro, web browsing, and watching shows and movies on Xfinity. Turn out the lights and I could not game with this keyboard or use any program that uses any F keys at all.
Pros: Very nicely made, solid quality, comfortable.
Cons: WORST F key design I've ever seen in my life. Someone obviously this keyboard to be more visually pleasing than functional. Dim the lights or turn them off and you can't find the right F key to save your life. That's why they're grouped together normally in groups of four! Lit keys would have sol...
Summary: I have small hangs and appreciate the size of the rodent; reminded me of the original Dove Bar BUSS mouse with card way back when. But as others have indicated this one is for the garbage can.
Pros: I like to use wireless keyboards in my lap at the office and at home.
Cons: I have worn two of them out since my original purchase of two of them; one for the office and one at home. The mouse wheels have lost their rubber cheap grommet. One set is completely useless. I tried this as a replacement for my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 6000 V2. I should have realized you pay...
Summary: Work upgraded my previous ergo Microsoft keyboard to this wireless setup. The small mouse gave me hand cramps and now the keyboard is acting up.
Pros: Keyboard shor-cuts labeled.
Cons: -Annoying dash error began to appear after a month of us-age. As I ty-pe dashes jus-t appear. At random. -The keyboard is hooked up to- a laptop docking stage and the FN keys don't work. Running W7 . -Mous-e is really really small.
