Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
24 March 2014
Excerpt: The good news is the keys were bright and easy to negotiate, which is why I'll give it 2 stars. However, what I found was F keys to small and the keyboard to be uncomfortable with the wave design. I'm sure it was there to be erogonimacally correct, but I found it to be awkward in the positioning on my desk. In addition, the cushion on the bottom was hard and not very giving. I ended up giving it to another worker in the office, who also found the F keys to be too small.
Excerpt: Wish I had checked several features. One is the lack of a light to signify caps lock and number lock. Constantly flipping back/forth, retyping, because you can't tell if it is locked until you type. Little awkward getting used to the different shape and feel, but with time I'm getting there. Love the cordless feature and the touch is just right on the keyboard, but the calculator side is shaped different and a little harder to get used to.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible, Long Range, Quiet
Excerpt: Was surprised when I saw how small the keyboard is. I was so used to my old wave keyboard but I had worn the letters off some of the keys and had nearly eliminated the finger nubs (or whatever they are called). Because of the price I bought 2 as I have several computers in my office. Still haven't hooked up the second one and not sure if I will. My neighbor made a wooden base to raise the keyboard and I'm still trying it out.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet
Cons: Built Stand To Raise Up, Shift Key Sticks, So Thin
Excerpt: The software loaged easily and the Keyboard has many more features than our prior one. The mouse pointer, though, is so unresponsive that it is essentially useless. The pointer movement onscreen is a good 1-2 seconds behind your hand movements. After 3 days of working with adjustments on the mouse, we are returning it. A wireless mouse we have works great with our old keyboard, so we will go with the wired keyboard and wireless mouse concept.
