Would not recommend this keyboard.

Excerpt: I am very unhappy with this keyboard. There are no lights indicating whether you are typing in upper and lower case. This is particularly frustrating when inputting passwords. I would not recommend this product.
Excerpt: I can't believe any company would make a keyboard without a Caps Lock or Number lock light. It's not a big deal, but it is frustrating as I use all caps a lot in my work. If you hit a couple of keys at the same time, the keyboard switches functions and you have to find that magic combination of keys...
Excerpt: I purchased this keyboard over a year ago. Since day one, it has consumed more batteries than any keyboard I've ever had. I lost count on how many packages it's gone through. When it locks up, I have to take the batteries out and switch them around, and that usually holds for a while.
Summary: Like many of the reviews said the keyboard does not sit firmly on desk but wobbles. A complete no no for a keyboard. If you are willing to take a chance and return if you get a wobbly one then you might get lucky and end up with a value-for money product.
Summary: The USB receiver broke in less than 9 months and there is no way of getting a replacement to match the keyboard and mouse. Searching for a solution to the problem it would appear this has happened with many Microsoft wireless combos, not just this model.
Summary: This is a good keyboard. But it comes with no instruction manual, not even the smallest one. For anyone unsure of how to install hardware or get it working, it's a real problem. I ordered one for my dad, an elderly man who is a novice.
At 4 meters Distance Mouse jumped and key strokes did not register.

Summary: I was using this with my PC behind a closed door about 4 meters away. I then tried it with the door open and in line of sight of the wireless dongle. Still no good. The mouse would teleport back and forth across the screen, opening a folder or even worse closing a tab by pressing on those little...
Summary: This piece of kit is a bit of a shocker.....the wireless connection seems to have a mind of its own,(happened again whhen i was typing this) or so you are happily typing away and the keyboard is not displaying what your typing....pretty dreadful.....
Summary: Got this as I needed a decent blue track mouse and wire-less keyboard. Already have a Logitech combo on one of my other PCs. The keyboard is nice, the mouse looks nice, if a bit chunky, but the real problem is the mouse pointer leaps all over the place.
Summary: Dont buy this set for anything other than the keyboard. The Mouse is a blue light version which only works on a very few surfaces. I have had red light laser Mice for years for my CAD system with no problems on any surfaces/ mousemats in my office.
