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...
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.
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.
Summary: Do not buy this product - there has to be better alternatives. I have absolutley no problem with the layout however my experience with the connectivity has been truly awful. However, if you have time to press the 'connect' button 50 times day then this is the keyboard for you.
Summary: Having got fed up with wires trailing across my desk and the rest of the general clutter, I decided to go for a wireless keyboard and mouse. The Laser Desktop 5000 seemed like the best looking, and also it had the benefit of been optimised for Windows Vista. But the proof is using the thing, not how good it looks. The mouse is well designed and fits into the hand perfectly, although I can see it been far too bulky for a child to use.
Conclusion: al entrar en las opciones de configuracion,y probar distintas opciones en rueda central,no he conseguido nada. maldita ruieda avanzada con doble desplazamiento.. :( la famosa manita ya no la puedo usar con el raton)ando aciendo clicks en los menus de los programas cual novato. k pasa con la opcion (en la rueda) clik con boton central? xk no funciona como todos los demas ratones? solo kiero mi boton central como siempre .
Pros: muy ergonoico si..
Cons: de momento tras 15 dias no e conseguido configurar la rueda central para 3dmax,fusio,afer efects etc.
