Worst product ever

,, TigerDirect.com
27 June 2013
  • Summary: Horrible response between keyboard and mouse. The worst I have ever seen. Others have complained about this but still give it 3 or more stars? I don't understand how reviewers can complain about the REALLY bad lag between keyboard and mouse and still give it more than 3 stars.

"Not worth it. Cannot buy replacement receiver."

  • Pros: Worked great.... until the receiver was mildly hit.
  • Cons: Accidentally bumped the receiver while moving my computer,now the Whole thing is useless! I'm buying Logitech from now on.Not only does the Logitech Unifying USB Receiver work with multiple devices you can buy a replacement.

mostly I like it, but...................

Bob, Staples
8 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I agree with a previous review. I like almost everything about this keyboard except the lack of a caps lock light. Drives me crazy, especially when keying in a case sensitive password and not knowing if caps lock is on. I have never seen the supposed caps lock indicator on the screen.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Set Up, Quiet
  • Cons: NO CAPS LOCK LIGHT

Don't Buy - Mouse will die in 5 months

A Former Loyal Staples Customer!, Staples
29 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Bought this for my home office. Needed something dependable. Yesterday, after only 5 months, the mouse died. Took it back to Staples, but apparently they no longer care about customer service (seriously...they told me that corporate policy had changed about 8 months ago and now they were strictly enforcing their 14 day return policey...they then said, "it's Microsoft's problem, not theirs!). So, now I have to get a new mouse. What a piece of junk!

Very Nice

  • Summary: A good keyboard is essential for me to be able to write and function. I've had some bad ones that skip characters or insert their own. This one is great. The mouse is flawless and smooth.

Doesn't do the job

pattygirl, Staples
18 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Keyboard doesn't register strokes at times. As a fairly quick typist, I find that sometimes I have to repeatedly strike the same key in order for it to register. Not a pounder, but I have had to on occasion. I lose parts of words and have to backtrack to make sense. I called microsoft and they sent me a new keyboard. Same thing happened again. I've never had this problem with any other keyboard (am on Laptop right now and all okay).
  • Cons: Doesn't register strokes, Slow Response

Don't buy this!

Linda, Staples

  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Doesn't work, Slow Connection
