Excerpt: I like that it eliminates the wires for mouse and keyboard. the mouse has some great features not found on most mice. my biggest fear is that the lettering will disappear as it does on most keyboards. I do recommend this product, even with it's idiosyncrasies.
Excerpt: After giving up on Logitech forever I had to try Microsoft for a keyboard that might actually work. I bought this one because of the non-spill aspect as I am notarious for spilling things on my keyboard. I love the compactness of the keyboard but it is taking a while to get used to typing on it because the keys are so close together. But for the short while I've had it I like it. The mouse is acting weird and I don't like that.
Summary: I researched a lot before making this purchase. I had a great microsoft keyboard mouse combo that was over 8 years old but was like an old friend. Very comfortable and with a sculptured mouse. When that failed I could not see a near equivalent so chose this one on a balance of price and features. Firstly the keyboard looks smart, both from above and the side and when elevated sits at a comfortable angle.
Summary: Having made the decision to replace my old USB keyboard and mouse, I then decided to go for something cheap(ish) but effective. I've used a good few Microsoft peripherals over the years and always been pretty happy with them, so decided to plump for the Wireless Desktop 3000. The keyboard and mouse are well made and pretty sturdy. Set-up is a simple case of inserting batteries and plugging the wireless dongle into a USB port.
Summary: ...it's hard to switch off the mouse [I leave the battery cover off and just pull the battery out a little, then turn the mouse on its back to remind me that it's [temporarily] dead ...it seems to work just as well on [either] one battery as on two ...the keyboard, annoyingly, has no Sleep button ...software [which is excellent] has to be downloaded eg [...] On the plus side, they work fine with my Samsung Smart TV.
