  • Summary: It's cheap and a great deal for the price. However, I don't like how the buttons are all squished together. The function keys are all the same without any gaps, so, for example, I can't hit F5 without looking at the keyboard. Same goes for the arrow keys and ins/del keys. It's easy to miss the keys if you're not looking.
  • Pros: Cheap, Works
  • Cons: Poor Layout

works for a time

  • Excerpt: If you want it for a year, then get this on sale. Otherwise, buy something else. These are made cheap and don't last long. The USB fails quickly and with little effort. It is not replaceable so you will end up buy a new keyboard/mouse combo within a year.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Comfortable, decent for a time
  • Cons: Quality, breaks quicklly

Works but inefficient

  • Excerpt: Having Problems with the mouse with inconsistencies in its operation with random lag time during operation. I replaced the batteries once with Energizer and it helped, but no where near the GE one I have for personal use at home. Tend to think it is a software glitch, maybe the transponder is not of good quality. My biggest complaint is the raised portion of the caps lock. I see it as a flaw when using the shift key.
  • Pros: not too expensive
  • Cons: unstable, Quality, Difficult to Use

Reasonably priced, but with deficiencies

skyhawk7661, Ebay

  • Summary: The item was purchased to eliminate a corded keyboard and mouse. The keyboard and mouse both work, but each has undesirable characteristics. The keyboard has a semi-firm touch, and there is no light to indicate if the "caps lock" or "numberic lock" are locked or unlocked. Sometimes (at least on our computer running Vista Ultimate) the cursor starts moving up and down on the monitor even though the mouse is untouched.

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 Keyboard and Mouse

  • Summary: The letters on the keys are extremely light. Very disappointed with that. Had to get rid of my other keyboard because the letters were wearing off but now I'm worried that these will wear off faster because they are already so light.

Optimal Range: 16 Inches

  • Summary: "secured and reliable connection with up to a 15-foot range" my ass. I bought one of this combo based on the reviews, and when it started acting up, I figured maybe the batteries that ship with it were near-dead. So I replaced the batteries, but no, still had problems; I figured it was just that one combo that was defective. So I sent it back to Amazon as defective, got a replacement...
