  • Summary: You don't need to change keyboards or mice too often, but I alway go with the high end Microsoft product because they are so reliable and last a good long time. I don't think you could go wrong with this keyboard.

Amazing Product! and why should ignore the negative reviews...

KLM, Amazon

  • Summary: I am quite astonished with people's complaints. Firstly no-one has complained about the mouse since it is a thing of beauty. The first noticeable perk is how comfortable it feels in the hand, I'm a right handed user and it feels really nice and solid in my hand. My hands are on the larger size however, and smaller handed people may prefer a smaller mouse.

Good set for about a year

Neil Jones, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this keyboard and mouse for just over a year and its starting to play up. Worked perfectly at first but now the mouse is very hit and miss. Scroller works some times and the laser doesn't work too well anymore. - Upside batteries last quite a while in this set as it was being used daily at work.

form over function

Ian Rogers, Amazon
5 October 2010
  • Summary: The keys feel great, and the mouse sits nicely in the hand. But the left hand shift key is *microscopically* small even though there's plenty of space to make it bigger! It's only that small so the left hand edge of the keys all line up. I'm constantly annoyed by hitting the capslock rather than the shift...

Great Desktop

  • Summary: I was concerned about this keyboard, as some customers were complaining about wireless range etc. For me it was working straight away from the box, and is working from next room thru the wall!

For those having keyboard problem..

AbX, Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: I own this product. while not having the "short range" problem... I had a problem with the keyboard signal. Apparently, while pressing a key (say 'W' playing an FPS) sometime it stop working so I had to re-press the key (I died countless times against final Crysis boss). After some (angry) test I've found a way to make it works. Easy put the receiver in a position where the mouse is never located between keyboard and receiver. that was stopping the keyboard data stream.

Hampered by limited wireless range

Martin, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this product to help me use my laptop, as I really do not like the way my thumb on the touchpad keeps causing the pointer to reposition when trying to type directly onto the keyboard. What I found was that the (bulky) wireless receiver needs to be sitting directly on TOP of the keyboard and mouse for them to work.

Big Disapointment

Guy Harwood, Amazon
18 May 2010
  • Summary: Sometimes the keys do not respond to being pressed, and this happens frequently, sometimes 2 or 3 times in a sentence. The mouse claims to be 'even better at working on shiny surfaces' because of the new laser technology when in fact it performs worse than my older logitech optical mouse and 'jitters' sometimes, causing a lot of frustration.
