Laugh and Learn, Amazon

  • Summary: the only issue i have is the function keys are small. i'm a developer and i use these keys a lot. if you're using this at home and you only do surfing, video editing or photoshop, i think this keyboard is for you.

  • Summary: I work in a very quiet enviroment, the keyboard design is great and preformance, but as for the mouse...it is really noisey. Alls you hear is CLICK CLICK CLICK. So if your like me, I would get something else.

It's OK but.............

David C "badgerstate2", Amazon

  • Summary: I just don't see the advantage yet of this keyboard. It has some good features but it is nothing like my older Microsoft wired keyboard. Maybe I just don't understand all the capabilities yet. I have only been using it about a month and getting used to something new is always a challenge. The mouse that came with it was fantastic to start with. Now I have had to park it because it has gotten out of sorts. The wheel is so loose it won't stop the motion. Drives me crazy.

  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet

No distance

CHAD, TigerDirect.com
31 January 2012
  • Summary: In the specs it states a 30 ft range but when I had the keyboard and mouse 6ft from the receiver I had experienced major delays and missed commands. this would fine if you're just using at your desk within 0-4 ft. Don't purchase if you're looking for distance.

  • Summary: Not recommended for people who do a lot of important typing work or data entry. Will cause you to make a lot of mistakes.
  • Pros: Compact design, comfortable key layout, foward/back buttons on mouse, many common function keys.
  • Cons: No on/off switch for keyboard, very limited keyboard range, unusual F-keys

Decent duo, good price

Richard, Mwave.com
5 January 2011
  • Summary: Overall, this is a really good keyboard and mouse combo. Both items feel like theyll last for a long time. The keyboard is too soft for me though, the F keys are tiny and you have to press them down too hard good for the office though since its quiet. The mouse is pretty huge, and its an oblong shape so it doesnt feel that great, but the Blue track works really well on any surface.
  • Pros: Quality product: sturdy keyboard and very accurate mouse
  • Cons: Keys feel extremely soft, especially the F keys mouse is gigantic and not very ergonomical

Keys too small

K. Elliott "Ellie", Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: In some ways, a lovely keyboard and mouse, nice touch, and shape, but the smallness of some keys, make it unusable, and although I have just bought this I will be buying a replacement. The small keys on the left, the impossibly small ESC and F keys, are irritating. I'm a seasoned user, some 40 years on keyboards, but I've given it a week of good use, and I am never going to like it.

Beware if you have small hands

Galning, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I work in IT and long hours at a keyboard mean I HAVE to have the right equipment. My Logitech wireless keyboard had developed an intermittent fault (only working when it felt like it) so I decided to treat myself to a new one and went back to Microsoft (had had a Natural one a few years ago). Agree with other reviewers - Shift key is FAR too small. When you are touch typing at speed you keep catching the damned Caps Lock.

Almost a great set but keyboard slightly twisted

Ian P., Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: First the good points. On the surface of it the set feels like it is good quality - the keys are quiet yet feel solid, the mouse glides effortlessly and tracks perfectly on any surface I've tried. I also think they styling and ergonomics are really good. It doesn't look too geeky and covered in buttons yet has everything I need.
