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.
Excerpt: Everything is fine with this product, it's affordable, fine ergonomic presentation however there is an issue against it. And it is the fact that the product does not have the "green light" indicating when you are or you are not writing on "caps" letter.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I didn't realize I would have to change which keys I select for everyday functions like copy and paste. Since it is hooked to my second Mac, using the new keyboard is bit annoying -- having to go back and forth between the microsoft keyboard and the Mac keyboard.
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.
Excerpt: Within the first month, one key does not type. Very hard to write when one letter will not respond to typing. Sometimes hitting the key several times very hard will get the letter to type. Best to spend more dollars and get a keyboard that fully works!!
