"Adequate if you don't use keyboard shortcuts"

garzaguy, CNET
17 March 2012
  • Pros: The keyboard has lots of built-in shortcut keys, and it has a very nice feel. Also, the keyboard is laid out in the traditional fashion; no stupid "ergonomic" curves or vertically oriented key grouping for the Insert-delete key group.
  • Cons: Inconsistent connection. With multiple-item selections using ctrl/shift, sometimes the keyboard skips out. Very annoying, especially for complex selection. Mouse is the same. Move/click work fine, but sometimes the scroll wheel won't scroll.

"Keyboard sometimes does not work."

  • Pros: Nice hot keys. Good ergonomic design.
  • Cons: Keyboard sometimes stops responding for playing game. I recommend you finding other keyboard for playing games. If you are not a gamer, then this keyboard is a good choice for you.

Pretty Satisfactory..

6 April 2010
  • Summary: I was looking out for a wireless keyboard and mouse for my Laptop.. and hence had no idea that the transmitter would be a wired USB type Transmitter.. and not the USB pendrive sized one.. hence there is abig problem with the portability of this thing.. Carrying the Transmitter as big as the Mouse is the main issue.. Otherwise the product is an excellent one.. I would say this is best suitable only to Desktop systems..not preferable for Laptop or netbook users.

  • Summary: Great keyboard with lots of features, mouse is very basic however (I'm used to having side buttons to navigate back/forward on websites.) Wheel on the mouse does not behave at all. Maximum transmitter range seems to be 18" inches, but this seems pretty standard when it comes to wireless keyboards/mice. Luckily the receiver comes with a really long cord, but then what's the point of having a wireless keyboard/mouse?!

"Keyboard great - scroll mouse pathetic"

earlparks, CNET
21 July 2009
  • Pros: Loved everything about the keyboard except that I was specifically try8ing to purchase a QUIET keyboard. This one is quieter than most but not what I was looking for.
  • Cons: I am taking this back to BestBuy. The scroll mouse takes too much effort to get it where it needs to be. That coupled with the fact that the keys really aren't as quiet as I would have lliked.

  • Excerpt: Nice Searching, Wonderful Characteristics, Wireless, keyboard functions with XBOX 360 for chat and getting into codes.. As said before, Quick variety... that's really my only complaint so far. I discovered if you location the reciever up higher (the cord is extended adequate for it) you get a bit more variety out of it..
