Unsatisfied

Carrie M., Newegg
5 June 2010
  • Summary: The extra two feet is not worth it. Next time, I'm looking at range and connectivity scores : / if they even exist.
  • Pros: It does what says. After dealing with connection problems.
  • Cons: The mouse and keyboard cannot operate beyond 2 feet of the receiver. This is my first wireless keyboard and mouse. And 5 feet of connectivity is too much? Seriously? I bought these to use for my internet-tv machine on my large screen. I had visions of using my mouse and keyboard from the couch. L...

Great for Desktops...Not for Living Rooms

Johnathan P., Newegg
3 June 2010
  • Summary: I thought about giving this four eggs because it's not great for my HTPC setup. However, the product is not really billed as an HTPC system and the product is not designed for distances greater than 1.8m.
  • Pros: Works well. Receiver module is low profile, attractive, and ensures good receptions. Overall system is styled very well. All the benefits of any MS "comfort curve" keyboard are applicable to this one.
  • Cons: Not my favorite mouse. The "Back" browing button is placed too high for ease of use and doesn't correspond to where the egronomic design places user thumbs. Also, while overall reception is great on a desktop, using this setup to control an HTPC may be problematic depending on the dimensions of y...

Finally a keyboard/mouse that works

Ricky F., Newegg
26 May 2010
  • Summary: Recently purchased a $1400 Studio 8100 PC from Dell with the optional wireless keyboard/mouse. Receiver is the size of a USB thumb drive, with no extension to get it closer than about 4 ft from board/mouse. Mouse lag was unacceptable.
  • Pros: Eggcellent price on Newegg. Intuitive placement of keyboard keys. The mouse works every time and will do anything you want it to do (lots of buttons with programmable functions). The receiver can be stuck on underside of computer desk, just inches away from keyboard & mouse.
  • Cons: Have found no disadvantages to this hardware.

Typing happily

Stephen M., Newegg
16 April 2010
  • Pros: Works great. Looks good. Priced right. Actually used this for a new build and it worked within the BIOS and Windows 7 installations without any drivers, which I wasn't expecting. Keys are a soft touch and feel great as I'm a heavy typer.
  • Cons: Batteries. I hate batteries, but that's the price you pay for wireless.

I bought this for the keyboard.

George M., Newegg
29 July 2009
  • Summary: Do not buy this if you only want the mouse. The only reason this gets 5 stars is because i paid half the retail price and only wanted the keyboard.
  • Pros: The keyboard works perfect up to 6 feet from the receiver as long as you have no interference.
  • Cons: The mouse is horrible. When using the mouse that came with the desktop 3000 i noticed that the cursor moves at half the speed of when I use my wireless notebook optical mouse 3000. The mouse wheel does not click.

Nice set!

Michael C., Newegg
5 May 2009
  • Summary: The bottom line is that this is a nice product for the price. It is easy to setup and use. Moreover, both the keyboard and mouse are very comfortable in my hands. I recommend this product. Some people complained that the RF receiver was not in the pictures.
  • Pros: This product delivers exactly what it advertises at a decent price. Without installing any drivers from the included CD, I plugged in the receiver and the Vista drivers installed automatically. The keyboard and mouse began working immediately. Because of the complaints below, I moved the keyboard...
  • Cons: The right alternate button on the mouse is awkward to hit with the pinky.
