Summary: I can only compare the keyboard to my laptop keyboard/mouse not to any other wireless keyboard. It works well and is more comfortable than my laptop keyboard. It arrived promptly. Downside is that there is no on-off button that I can find, so I'm unsure how long the batteries will last. Although the battery light is no longer showing GREEN, it still works fine.
Excerpt: Love the functionality. The programmable keyboard shortcuts are easy to setup and work perfectly. The feel of the mouse is great. The only thing I didn't like is it came missing the feet on the keyboard.
Excerpt: This wireless combo of keyboard and mouse was initially a little confusing to connect. Windows 7 was not able to locate the appropriate driver. There were no written instructions for installation. It was necessary to go to Microsoft website, locate product and download driver file. Once installed both keyboard and mouse functioned properly.
Excerpt: After about 5 years or so I needed to replace my keyboard and mouse and I was happy to see this one was still available. I have Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 5000 now and it has been a trooper. I use my keyboard and mouse a lot every day as I have worked from home for about 7 years now and that is a full workday+. I have been pleased with the features (I am pretty basic) and I like the curved wrist rest.
Excerpt: It installed so easy I could not beleive it. Works great. Both mouse and keyboard works off batteries (included) so the board does not light up. That is the only complaint - I can't tell whether or not I am in caps or if number lock is on at a glance. This is only important when typing in a password that only shows *******. Other-wise I have no complaints. It is very comfortable to use. It has a lot of short cut buttons if you want them.
