"Well designed and sensationally thought out keyboard."

Brav0man, CNET
6 April 2012
  • Pros: The hot keys, wireless range (even through walls), comfortable design, battery life(I use mine constantly and have only had to replace the batteries once in the year or so that I've owned it) and, interface (couple all this with shortcuts and voila).
  • Cons: 1st, if the monitor is in any way in the line of sight of the USB receiver and the keyboard there will most definitely be a break in the signal. 2nd, no users manual PDF anywhere on the net as far as I can tell.

"Does not work, very frustrating to use"

edosansf, CNET
6 January 2011
  • Pros: Ergonomic design of keys, feel of the keyboard is good.
  • Cons: Nothing more frustrating than a keyboard that drops characters as you are typing. I really wanted this keyboard and mouse to work well, but while I use it characters stop getting transmitted. Turning off the mouse does seem to help with the keybd.

"Wireless Wi-Fi keyboards have ZERO encryption security"

westchaser, CNET
26 October 2009
  • Pros: Ultra quiet; perfect for a home / bedroom office.
  • Cons: All of your keystrokes are being transmitted *without* encryption into the surrounding environment via RF (radio frequency) for approximately 30-foot circumference. This is a MAJOR security risk - just google this topic; all experts agree.

"decent, but not great"

cnetContributor, CNET
7 January 2009
  • Pros: Good wireless functionality - no connectivity issues. Worked without any software installs, although I haven't tried configuring the special buttons. Standard layout (save function keys) Nice soft keys for depressing. Smooth spinning mouse wheel
  • Cons: The mouse doesn't roll easily, making it difficult to roll small distances. Impossible to move cursor 10 pixels in any direction without rolling too far. Keyboard extends too far below keys (wrist support?) Difficult to store in keyboard tray.

Nice set for a ok price.

Overstock
19 January 2008
  • Summary: The keyboard & mouse set is a pretty good deal. One important thing to note that isn't at all clear in the product description; The keyboard is semi ergonomicaly curved, not a total split sided and curved keyboard, but gently curved at the center keys and they G, H, B & N keys are all slightly larger to accomodate I guess for those who are not strong typists or to aid in speed. For myself, I found it took quite awhile to get used to the difference.
