JUNK

Kenneth McCaffery, Amazon
28 June 2010
  • Summary: Worked for two days. Just long enough for me to discard packaging. Now stuck with worthless pieces of plastic. Save your money.

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.

Two Pieces of Junk

Janyth, Amazon
16 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought this wireless keyboard/mouse combo a couple of months ago. I used the keyboard for a week before I trashed it; it had an annoying habit of going into "Insert" mode on its own and I would end up overlaying whole sentences before I would catch it. The mouse fared better -- it lasted almost two months and then it got weird. The cursor would travel all over the screen by itself and then it wouldn't respond to me at all. Not a battery issue.

idea better than execution

Overstock
27 April 2008
  • Summary: I've used wireless keyboards/mice in the past, this one isn't worth the time or money. The item showed up without software disc, no manual/installation instructions, no batteries... Just the keyboard, the mouse, the transceiver, that's it. After installing the drivers from microsofts website it was working erratically until I figured out the transceiver was too far away, turns out 2-3 feet is the MAX distance depending on interference (a box of kleenex blocks signals...

Do not waste your money!

Top Dollar, Amazon
4 February 2008
  • Summary: This keyboard and mouse are both low quality. I would recommend you go to a store and try it out first. The feeling on the keyboard is awful. The mouse is very cheap feeling also. The thing eats batteries so fast. The mouse will drift all over the screen. I used this item for a month then threw it away because I hated it so much. This is the first review I have actually felt compelled enough to write. So basically this thing sucks.

Not happy with this set

Jenn T. "Jenn T.", Amazon
18 January 2008
  • Summary: I was not at all happy with this product & ended up returning it after trying it for 2 months. The mouse was OK. Responsive and didn't eat batteries as much as other wireless mouses I've had. The keyboard was bad. It missed keys all the time and often I'd have to press a key several times before it would respond. The worst thing about his set, though, is that it would often (maybe once a week) just lose the signal completely.

Vista issues with wireless

Eoin Gill, Amazon
11 January 2008
  • Summary: I have had this keyboard and mouse set for the past 3 weeks and I am about to run out of patience with it entirely. The actual hardware is nice enough. The keyboard is quiet, but has a reassuring feel to each key when you are typing. The quick-access buttons work well, and offer a very good level of customization through the keyboard software.

Beware of the 666 cordless set!

M. R. Simmons "Techie", Amazon
26 December 2007
  • Summary: After approximately nine months, my faithful Logitech MX3200 Cordless Laser set stopped working dependably due to age and extensive use (and nine months is not a long time for a keyboard and mouse, but nowadays manufacturers are not making products that last a long as they used to anymore, and I won't complain too much about it here). Specifically, the keyboard no longer accurately typed my character inputs.

Product would not function

John S. Campbell, Amazon
13 October 2006
  • Summary: This Microsoft Wireless 1000 keyboard and mouse system would not function even though I installed the software as described. I then followed the "read me" instructions and uninstalled it several times trying to find circumstances that would work. Then I went to Microsoft's web site and downloaded current software and nothing, nothing, nothing worked at all after several hours of checking battery installation, uninstalls, downloads, etc. Gave up.

perfettamente inutile

serialflopper, Ciao
24 October 2011
  • Summary: Ho appena letto l'opinione di un utente e mi sono ricordata di avere avuto anche io tastiera e mouse wireless della stessa marcha. Eccomi qui, allora. Probabilmente avevo rimosso vista l'esperienza disastrosa. Era una vita che volevo tastiera e mouse senza fili. Più che altro per una questione di comodità: avevo più cavi sotto la scrivania che in tutta la casa. In questo modo mi sarei sbarazzata di un paio di cavi. Quando ho visto questo prodotto l'ho comprato subito.
  • Pros: l'idea poteva essere utile
  • Cons: non funziona !
