Enter key broke

RANDI S., Newegg
4 May 2015
  • Summary: It's a gamble if you get a good one.
  • Pros: It's cheap and 3 of 5 sets are still working.
  • Cons: 2 of the 5 sets ordered for my office, the Enter on the 10-key stopped working in less than 3 months.

Piece of Garbage

Patricia F., Newegg
31 October 2012
  • Summary: I wouldn't buy it again. The stupid little dongle is a terrible idea. My last keyboard/mouse combo had a receiver unit with a USB cord coming out of the back of it, making it easy to move the receiver close to the keyboard, making it possible to use.
  • Pros: It has every letter and most of the punctuation, I think. Looks cool, what with all the white plastic.
  • Cons: Keyboard loses signal and mouse lags at a distance of 24 inches, rendering both basically unusable about 40% of the time. This review took me a full 8 minutes to write because of the terrible keyboard I'm typing it on.

Doesn't perform as expected

pattygirl, Staples
23 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Keyboard has a hard touch. As a faster than average typist, it causes skipped letters which means going back and repeating. Doesn't always register when key is hit. A light touch is not a good thing with this keyboard. Heavy touch and a slow typing style fair better.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Quiet
  • Cons: Slow Response

Very Nice but no off switch

JIm, Staples
19 July 2011
  • Excerpt: It is great but the only way to turn the mouse off is to unplug the usb and stick it in the mouse undercarriage slot. Annoying considering I have to remove the usb from the mouse, plug it back into the computer every time I am away for some time and come back for quick business related responses.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Highly Compatible, Light quick responding, Quiet
  • Cons: No off switch

4 AA Batteries Required!

cookie, Staples
18 January 2011
  • Excerpt: I wish I would have known that the keyboard and mouse required 2 AA batteries each for a total of 4 batteries. I'm wondering how long the batteries it came with will last and how often I will need to replace them. Duracell batteries are expensive. [...
  • Pros: Fast Connection, Wireless
  • Cons: Batteries, Needs 4 AA Batteries

no "caps lock" flag on keyboard

Essayist, Staples
16 August 2010
  • Excerpt: I have this keyboard and it's driving me crazy. It does everything it's supposed to do, and a bunch of things I don't care about which is nice I guess. But it has one flaw that's a deal-breaker: there's no caps lock light on the keyboard itself.
  • Pros: Easy Connectivity, Fast Connection
  • Cons: Poorly Designed

Large keyboard but no way to turn off

youkid, Staples
8 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The keyboard and mouse are smooth and easy to set up but hard for those with small hands. There is no way to switch the mouse off so the battery is always on even when you are not using it.
  • Pros: Easy Connectivity, Mouse back forward key
  • Cons: Keyboard large, No switch for mouse, Poorly Designed

Not impressed

Sam, Staples
29 June 2010
  • Excerpt: It was easy enough to set up, but that was about it. The mouse was choppy and often unresponsive, and the keyboard did not pick up every key stroke. I returned it for a Logitech MK300 which I am very happy with.
  • Pros: Easy Connectivity
  • Cons: Poor response, Slow Connection

Doesnt work over a few feet away

rdrettig, Staples
18 February 2010
  • Excerpt: The keyboard worked great as long as I was not more than 4 or 5 feet away. If I use it from my couch (which is about 9 feet away from the usb plug in) it misses about half of the keys pressed. It is brand new, so there is no chance of it being the batteries (I even tried new ones).
  • Pros: Easy Connectivity
  • Cons: Poorly Designed
