Okay keyboard

lemcbee, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: This one is no longer working, and it was okay as keyboards go. I bought a Logitech K520 to replace it and it was the best keyboard I ever used, including the one that I am now using that came with my Mac. I have still not decided whether or not to hook that K520 up with my Mac or not, I know I miss it.

Good enough set. Great value

AD, Amazon
25 May 2011
  • Summary: Pros: + Easy to use + Compatible with both PC and Mac + Battery life. I went on for 2 months before I had to replace and I'm a heavy computer user + Great range. About 3 1/2 feet max works for me + Unbeatable price. With Amazon's great pricing and free shipping on this set, it surely offers great value for money Cons: - I do find it a bit bulky compared it's newer, more expensive counterparts Overall a great product with great value. Recommended.

Basic wireless option for the desktop

M. Abbott, Amazon
27 October 2010
  • Summary: The title adequately describes my overall review. I have an older version of a Microsoft executive desktop with a similar design that I have used for five years. It has a couple more features. I was looking for an inexpensive option for another home PC, and this has met my need.

Wireless yes, Good no.

joshua cale boucher, Amazon
19 October 2010
  • Summary: The product arrived from seller as stated in new condition. Upon opening with great excitement the huge USB receiver for the keyboard and mouse destroyed the mood immediately. After the aesthetic let down I plugged up keyboard and mouse to find the range was terrible. You have to have the receiver almost on top of the keyboard and mouse for it to work.

Distance a problem

Robert L Belden, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • Summary: I am disappointed that the mouse and keyboard must be located with 2-4 feet of the USB connection to work. I had planned on using them at a distance of about 10 feet.

JUNK

  • Summary: Worked for two days. Just long enough for me to discard packaging. Now stuck with worthless pieces of plastic. Save your money.

Don't buy it

Road Warrior, Amazon
7 June 2010
  • Summary: Unfortunately I hadn't seen the other reviews before I purchased this. Microsoft should be ashamed its name is on this product, but it's one more reason I'm thinking of switching to Apple when my PC needs to be replaced and/or rather than converting to Windows 7, and not just for the PC, but mobile phones, etc. As others have noted, the mouse is awful. It often doesn't respond to scrolling (even after I modify the various settings, which aren't easy to find, by the way).

Spectacularly bad

Alex, Amazon
21 May 2010
  • Summary: This wireless keyboard/mouse is the bane of my existence. I expect to die at an early age from stress caused solely by this terrible product. Fool that I am, I bought two of them, one for work and one for my home computer, so this evil device torments me day and night. Neither unit works correctly, especially the mouse. The promised range is a joke. If the mouse or the keyboard is more than nine inches from the receiver, it will barely function.
