soft and quiet keyboard but
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.
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.
Excerpt: My use of this keyboard : home use, aroud 20 hours per week Great things : - quiet typing - wireless Things that are not so good : - battery consumption : the mouse dries out 2x800 mAh for 20 hours of use - mouse wheel does not have notch - Esc, left shift, and return keys are too small for fast...
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: 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.
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
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.
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).
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.
Summary: I have given this kit 3 stars after some consideration - I was thinking about only giving it 2 stars. Nothing wrong with the keyboard, it is easy to use even if the hotkeys are smaller than is conventional. The layout is otherwise familiar.
