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.

Really Good, but not Great

Login A. Wolfenden, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: We got this product to use on our computer that is hooked up to a television screen. It works well but has only about a 6ft range. That was disappointing because it doesn't reach across our living room, and the fact we have to sit really close to the screen. But if you are using it at a desk right by your screen, then its perfect.

  • Summary: Keyboard is fine for light to moderate general purpose work [word processing, email, server terminal, etc.].
  • Pros: I wouldnt rely too much on it for heavy duty work [it doesnt seem like it was designed for heavy work anyway]. I havent really tested the rangeit works fine within a few feet of the XP Pro-based workstation that I use for testing and development. Im satisfied with the keyboard.
  • Cons: not yet

  • Summary: This wireless keyboard and mouse combo from Microsoft fits the bill perfectly. The setup is super easy and the feel of the keys is similar to keyboards costing much more. The mouse is responsive and appears to have good battery life. As a basic entry level wireless keyboard and mouse combination there is nothing more anyone can ask for. Highly recommended.

Good product; great price!

Warren F. Taylor "Cessna Skylark Pilot", Amazon
11 February 2008
  • Summary: If you're looking to simply your desktop and get rid of some wire, buy this setup. Wireless mouse included. I got tired of the wire from the keyboard catching my shoe and then yanking the board backward. This little jewel solved that problem. Don't be persuaded by those who hate Microsoft. They sell first class hardware products at a decent price.

Works great as long as you don't install the software.

Amazon Addict "Stan", Amazon
2 September 2007
  • Summary: This product is pretty much plug and play if you are running XP or Vista. IT WORKS GREAT WITHOUT THE SOFTWARE. In fact installing the software actually makes this product function worse. By not installing the software, you will not be able to use some of the multimedia buttons (My Docs, My Pics, My Music, and the Media Play Controls), I never really missed these buttons any way.

Nice wireless set

Daniel Calandro, Amazon
16 July 2007
  • Summary: This is a really good "basic" wireless keyboard and mouse set. The software installed just find and after that I plugged in the receiver and was ready to go. It was really snappy and responsive right out of the box. Sometimes people get issues because the battery is low to begin with (remember the battery has been sitting in the package since it was shipped to Amazon, Best Buy, Staples, etc.
