MS Wireless keybrd/mouse Combo

MS keybrd/mouse combo, Staples
27 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Went to Staples to replace an older MS/Key/mouse combo and they didn't have the less expensive 3000 model in stock, it is only an online buy. How convenient they only stock the items not on sale in the store.

F Keys are too small

jkay, Staples

  • Excerpt: The keyboard is nice, except I would like the Function keys to be larger. I would have gotten another one, had I noticed it when I was buying it.

Very Finicky

Longbidf, Staples
22 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Keyboard is non responsive . Software gets a C+ as you have to let it flip to each piece. Took awhile to figure that out. I have tried to update drivers but no help. When I tried a system repair my system would boot recognizing two keyboards and one mouse. The repair failed . I contacted the motherboard supplier and he suggested a new unit. I searched for help on the Microsoft site and every time AI clicked a link that I thought was correct I ended at my starting point.

It's a step up from a flat keyboard

hulse, Staples
13 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The layout isn't bad. Too bad they can't do a wireless of the 'natural' keyboard instead of an almost morphed version. The tactile feel is quite lacking - especially compared to the Logitech, but Logitech had to go mess with the Home/Page Up/Page Down key layout so that threw them out the window. I also hate the mouse. Too big. I am using the logitech wireless AND the microsoft keyboard. Quit bundling stuff - let me pick and choose.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design
  • Cons: Mushy Feel - No Response

  • Excerpt: I plugged the remote in the back of my computer and when I put the keypad in my lap it would lose connection. I did repug it into the front but where it sticks out so far I'm worried it will get hit by my boxer dog.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible, Quiet
  • Cons: Limited Range

Some design oversights kinda ruin it

Luke, the 45-year old student, Staples
17 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Batteries are included. All you have to do is put them in, plug in the USB connector, wait a few seconds, and you're off and typing. I like the curved design and the soft heel pad. Keys are responsive and quite springy. Although I do like a little more of a clicky sound (these sound soft). There are a ridiculous amount of shortcut keys. I suppose they're cool, but I doubt I'll ever use them. Routine, you know?
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response
  • Cons: No Caps Lock Indicator, No Num Lock Indicator, No Onoff Button On Mouse, Shortcut Key Overload

Comfortable to work with

Carrie, Staples
5 December 2013
  • Excerpt: The keyboard is comfortable on your hands. The mouse is larger than usual, which I like. The F keys have assignments I'm not used to and would like to find out how to override them, particularly F2. The mouse "whooshes" and is slow to respond at unpredictable times.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Set Up, Quiet
  • Cons: Mouse Whooshes, Slow Response
