ok, but would look elsewhere next time round

  • 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.

Bad with an if, good with a but.

  • 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.

Good and Bad.

  • 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.

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000

  • 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.

Great Mouse - Not so Great Keyboard

Chris S, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • 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.

Just ok

  • Summary: Mouse (blue light) very good, no click on wheel so too easy to move. Low profile keys not as easy to use as my last Logitech. All in all, ok but not outstanding.

Wireless Desktop 3000

Ronso, Amazon

  • 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.

Mouse design is poor

A. Evans, Amazon
24 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this set for use with my Win7 laptop and initial feelings about the keyboard are positive. As another reviewer noted it is shortcut heaven, and they're configurable too. I hate the mouse though, not because of it's responsiveness which is fine, but because it needs to be turned off after use and there's only one way to do it, by removing the wireless dongle and clipping it into the mouse.
