Keyboard and mouse are working fine now. Just two issues
13 January 2015
Summary: Keyboard and mouse are working fine now. Just two issues. You cannot turn the mouse off unless you detach the wireless stick from the PC and insert in the mouse. A real pain if you have a desktop with the wireless stick plugged in the back. Also have some spare batteries to hand. Secondly, if the wireless stick is too close to your router then the 2.4 GHz wireless signals interferes making the mouse very jerky and unusable.
Summary: it works fine if all you want is a mouse and keyboard for your standard pc. or if you have a desk for your laptop, but one stupid thing lets the set down a lot which is there is NO switch to turn it off and on with on either the mouse or the keyboard! this be really irritating if using your pc to watch films as the mouse can just suddenly appear in the middle of the screen. a simple on and off switch would have made this perfect.
Summary: A nice piece of kit that works well. The one drawback seems to be that the only way to turn off the mouse short of removing the batteries is to remove the dongle from the PC and insert it in the slot provided for it on the bottom of the mouse. I'm thinking of making something dongle sized to get around the problem.
Summary: Pretty good - like the working angle adjustable with feet beneath the keyboard. Conflicted with my TP-Link TL-WDN3800 N600 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter so turned off the adapter. Works fine now.
Summary: Cant really add anything new to what has already been said however I have one major issue with this keyboard - why did MicroSoft not add a "sleep" button somewhere on it. This button has been on most other keyboards and I like to set my system "sleep" rather than turn off. When I hit the spacebar of my keyboard I expect to be able to pickup emails etc in less than 10 seconds. The omission of this key seems crazy to me.
Summary: This is battery powered, wireless keyboard and mouse set. Both keyboard and mouse use a single dongle which is about the size of a AA battery and protudes a fair bit. Fine if round the back of the tower unit but be careful if you want to use it on an exposed USB port. This also means you have to use them as a pair. Keyboard and mouse require two AA batteries each - however these last for ages. I'm quite a heavy user and I get at least a couple of months from each.
Summary: Pleased with large, clearly laid out keyboard with helpful shortcut buttons. Very straight forward layout and easy to use. The only big drawback with the Wireless mouse is remembering to replace the transceiver in the underside of the mouse - otherwise the battery is drained very quickly.
