Know what you're getting before you buy it

Gregory P., Newegg
6 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this expecting the mouse action to be terrible. It was pretty bad, but for what I use it for, it's fine. Don't expect bt to be lightening fast, the technology just isn't there. With that said, I will say, this is hands down the best way to use your computer from the coffee table.
  • Pros: I purchased this setup to make getting work done on my netbook easier when at home. So far it has done its job well. The keys on the keyboard are big, sit low, and are easy to push. The mouse functions and has an indicator of when it needs to be charged. Overall, it works well and makes my life a...
  • Cons: Like most people say, the action on the mouse isn't great. If you're looking for a gaming mouse, get a usb mouse. If you have internal bluetooth, good luck connecting the keyboard and mouse through that. I've been stuck to using the provided usb bluetooth adapter. There's probably a way, but I ha...

Love it!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
17 December 2009
  • Summary: Over all, this keybaoard/mouse combo is top notch. If and when I need to buy a new one, I will get this some one. In fact I've thought about buying another one now incase they stop making this exact one.
  • Pros: I don't know what problems others have had, but this is the best thing sience the invention of TP and sliced bread! It's been a year and this keyboard is still working great; I use non-stop for aboout a total of three hours a day if not more! I love the D-Pad so much I don't even use the combo mo...
  • Cons: One thing I don't like and one problem; I don't really likr the touch keys at the top. I oftern will brush the (F1-Help) key when I'm in the Media Center and it's a paid in the rear. Also the problem I've had is some of the keys (2 or 3 of them) will kinda stick and I have to press harder than th...

Nice media center KB

Gerald M., Newegg
15 December 2009
  • Summary: Even though the kit was a bit expensive, and not useable to me on the deskop (no 10-key), I'm happy. I ordered it for a media keyboard, and only entertained thoughts of using it on my desktop after seeing it. It looks very nice.
  • Pros: Just about the right size, unless you want to use the numeric keys, which it doesn't have. Comfortable to use both on a desk and a lap. Reliable RF connection. Mine arrived in new OEM condition, with no KB batteries, no software CD, but with 2 Bluetooth dongles (1 MS, 1 Toshiba). Naturally, after...
  • Cons: In my current configuration, I can't wake the computer with the keyboard, (as can be done with the MCE IR remote) but I will play with BIOS and power setting toward that end - I've not given up on that yet.

Awesome HTPC keyboard

Maxwell D., Newegg
10 August 2009
  • Summary: Downright a fantastic keyboard for HTPC use. Very versatile. Picked up for 20 dollars at a garage sale!
  • Pros: Fantastic for HTPC use. Bluetooth means that a direct sight-line isnt needed
  • Cons: No bluetooth WMC remotes yet. Not good for general computing. Trackpad/scroll bar is kind of flimsy

Works great for HTPC

Anonymous, Newegg
22 May 2009
  • Summary: I used to own a wireless mouse & keyboard set that were not Bluetooth, and they did not work more than 4 feet from the reciever. This works from as far away as I can get (I don't have a huge house, so I'm no where near the 30-foot stated range.) I am very happy with this.
  • Pros: Fantastic range: I never have problems connecting to my HTPC in my living room. Battery life: The same AA battery has been in the mouse for over a month, and it shows no signs of weakening.
  • Cons: The keyboard has a weird look and shape, I would have preferred something more plain, but I get over it because I can sit on my couch and type.

Great for the price

Reginald S., Newegg
21 May 2009
  • Pros: This sucker has great range (though I've only tested it line-of-sight from the dongle). The keyboard feels a little different, but not enough to hinder typing. I LOVE the little track pad built into the keyboard!!! Mouse is ambidexterous. (LEFT POWER!!!)
  • Cons: The mouse still has the Microsoft junky soft wheel that always feels like it doesn't work. I really wish they would use something that FEELS like it works That "feature" is the only reason I didn't drop a 5-egg review on this product.

Works great for HTPC

Jarrett M., Newegg
7 May 2009
  • Summary: Wish it worked with Windows 7 RC
  • Pros: Small thin keyboard with built in mouse pad makes navigating from the sofa easy.
  • Cons: I had some initial issues but isolated it to Windows 7 RC not agreeing with drivers. Reset to Vista and XP MCE and everything works great

I received a used one.

Dustin C., Newegg
21 April 2009
  • Pros: It works just like I wanted it to. It was an easy install in Vista but...
  • Cons: I received a used product. I could tell because it had scratches on the battery covers. The documentation was torn. The two batteries for the keyboard were missing. I am giving this one egg because it was sold as new and not listed as refurbished, only oem. I don't mind buying a refurb but I like...

Good Combo, Mouse Great Keyboard Good

Jeffrey S., Newegg
20 April 2009
  • Summary: Got this for free from Microsoft as an OEM, so I am rating it under the OEM. I have worked closely with Bluetooth as a networking protocol and cannot believe the number of people confused about a dongle being included with an OEM supplied product and then claiming to be highly experienced with the...
  • Pros: Mouse is perfect. No sticking of keys, made well, feels good in my hands (6'2" with larger hands), good reception and tracing. Keyboard is good only due to the learning curve if you are used to typing on a "normally" laid out keyboard. Keys are not misplaced per se, but are in a position that lea...
  • Cons: Small con of keyboard learning curve. Keyboard is a bit large, could be a con for some.
