Would not recommend this keyboard.

Theresa, B&H Photo

  • 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.

Disappointed

Springville, Office Depot
9 September 2011
  • 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 to hit again to get it back to normal mode. I had this happen twice and it took forever to find online what I had done and how to fix it.

Don't waste your money!

SoCalGal, Office Depot
20 April 2011
  • 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. I've had a logic keyboard at home for years and have only replaced its batteries once. I will never by a MS keyboard again.
  • Pros: Features
  • Cons: Short Battery Life, Performance

Terrible Product

Harry Gould, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • 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. Now another perfectly good keyboard and mouse set is rendered useless and looks destined for landfill. Shameful from Microsoft. If I can't get them to replace the product I'll be trying a different company.

No instructions, hard to find help

Customer, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • 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. He was baffled and ended up having to wait until I could get to his house two days later to get it installed. Just a simple sheet of paper with very basic instructions would have been such a help for him.

At 4 meters Distance Mouse jumped and key strokes did not register.

bart, Amazon
21 March 2014
  • 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 "x"s became a monumental struggle, an in depth puzzle taking 5 or 10 minutes to complete.

  • 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......could be the dongle is rubbish, used to have a desktop wireless receiver but now i guess it is just use cheap crap and stuff the customer experience...

Rubbish Mouse - should be Blue tat

Foxy, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • 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. I've tried the transmitter in different USB ports and switched off other stuff to see if it's RF interference, but it is cr*p and totally unusable for anything serious. - It's going back!!
